Ever since he became the popular rumor following TP He-Man, I wasn't that excited for DB Skeletor as he's just never been that cool to me, but the dragon is a bigger "meh" than even I thought it would be. I am sorry for anyone truly disappointed and glad for anyone who is pleased. Now that we've gotten him out of the way I can look forward to the Skeletor variants I liked more (Laser Light, NA, Disks of Doom, Battle Blade, Fire Armor, and even Terror Claws will be interesting as he had the dumbest armor but coolest weapons).
I'm a little underwhelmed by the head honestly, I don't know what to make of it on just the one pic. I sort of like it, sort of dont.
You can see a bit of the hind leg below his arm. I'm thinking his claw might be blocked by the lock.
I forgot about the Skeletors Dragon mini. Isn't that the one where he wakes up Battle Bones and escapes via energy vagina?

Yet another sub holder here and I haven't gotten either email. But, it doesn't shock me at this point.
DBS is certainly a very nice surprise!!
But I have to side with the majority of people here and agree that the dragon's head looks... off.
Since no action feature was required I feel as though they could have taken some liberty on the head and given him an open mouth with more of a 'spitting/spraying' look to it.
I mean, this little guy's main defence is to spray his victims with a deadly mist right? If thats the case then why did they make him look like a 'chomper' with such a heavy focus on those teeth?
IMO upon first glance, nothing says Dragon 'Blaster' Skeletor about this figure, rather lil' Dragon Piggy-Back Skeletor.

It looks like the dragon's head may be able to fold back 90 degrees so that it looks straight when the dragon is on the ground in a dog like position. Anyone agree?

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
Do you like DB skeletor's dragon's new head!
Nice post about why it doesn't fit the character.

No point in asking if they can redo the head since we all know what the answer to that question will be.
Wow, that dragon head is about the worst sculpt yet. I mean, it's really, really bad. How are more people not up in arms about this?
Yet another e-mail that I haven't recieved, and probably never will.
I will say this, there might be a (small) chance that the Dragon will come with 2 heads, one more toy based, and one more concept drawing based. Seems plausible to me any way.
I'm not too keen on the Dragon's head either. It's mostly that he has too many teeth and they are too long compared to the other vintage illustrations mentioned earlier in this thread. I also wish the mouth was articulated or sculpted open.

I don't mind the ridiculous teeth on the dragon...
