From the Vault: Green Dragon Lurker

Just a quick post to show off my all-time favorite dragon figure. It's just a plain, green dragon with an old school feel because, well, it's old! It was included in the Forest of Doom playset made by Dimensions for Children (DFC) in '81.

It was part of the Dragon Riders of the Styx series (so I'm told). Reis over at Geek Orthodox did a lengthy post on the whole series a while back, so I'll let him fill you in on the details. Some of the photos over there weren't holding up when I checked, but here's hoping they are back up. Here's an alternate set of photos just in case (scroll down a bit).

Anyway, who can resist this little guy? What a great pose!

His front legs look a little weird. May just be the angle i'm viewing it from.

Yeah, those may in fact be molded "people" legs. But he does get good reach from them though!

Woot! Thanks for the shout out! Sorry I haven't gotten around to fixing those image links. :P I'm a lazy, lazy man.
