PostSubject: Battering Ram Dragon: too small?   Thu Jan 04, 2018 8:45 pm

Hello everybody! (and happy new year).
I've just bough two new dragons of Eldrador to add to my personal dragon collection; Poacher Dragon and Dragon Battering Ram.
Poacher is just beautiful and perfect in size, however I find Dragon Battering Ram quite small compared mainly to Poacher, being both equal-priced.
I've bought them online though I've seen a few images of then irl, I wasn't expecting him to be this size.
Those who had it, I want to know your impressions. Is it really small from your point of view?
Thank you.

Very interesting pictures ! Very interesting models cheers
It is fun to see the omdels from other series than animals too Very Happy

I agree that Ram looks small compared to Poacher, but isn't it mainly because his wings are smaller ? Do they weigh almost the same ?
A battering ram should be sturdy and heavy, so it makes sence, doesn't it ?  Very Happy

Thankyou for the great photoes. Applause flower

Wonderful dragons!  Thank you for sharing them.  I think the poacher is quite beautiful as well.

I'm sorry to hear that your battering ram dragon was so unequally priced.  That's quite a shame since it actually looks easier/cheaper to produce than some of the others.  I would agree that if he weighed more the price would be justified, but this doesn't look to be the case.  You would see larger wings or other features making up for it.

I've seen other companies start to make unequally priced figures as well.  It's a shame since it used to be so consistent.

You're right!
Maybe It's because I'm too used to have bigger dragon figures that I get the impression of him being small.

I love the original green dragon as well. He looks fantastic with the others. Don't get me wrong, I think the battering ram is a unique and beautiful figure, I just wish you had saved a little on him.

Very nice collection, overall!

Thank you all Very Happy
Overall I'm happy with "my little boy", I just had this minor issue. But It's no problem.

Maybe some day I'll post my entire collection but for now I'm just relocating and making space

I have the old green dragon and the poacher. The poacher is one of their most beautifully colored Ive seen. I also like the ice dragon but dont have him yet.
