Pirates and dragons are taking over these days, with all sorts of action figures of both all over store shelves. With Dragonology
, a popular book about dragons, flying out of bookstores, it is no wonder that the action figures were soon to follow. Here's a look at the Asian Lung dragon figure from the first series of Dragonology
Dragonology Asian Lung Action Figure
Sababa Toys has released a series of action figures based on the popular book Dragonology. The first series has four figures: Frost Dragon, Gargouille, Asian Lung, and Wyvern. I picked up the Asian Lung figure because he was the most visually interesting to me, being quite distinct from the other action figures of dragons that are already in my collection. The sculpt is stylized and very cute.
I do like the color scheme, which is a metallic blue with silver and metallic purple highlights and splashes of a goldish green color, but the articulation left me a bit cold. A hinged jaw or perhaps another twist in the tail would have made me feel better about the retail price.
McFarlane Toys has spoiled dragon collectors with the short stories that they include with their McFarlane's Dragons action figures, but the cardback for the Asian Lung does have an excerpt about the dragon from the Dragonology book.
