Iron Studios are taking pre-orders on this nostaliga inducing mighty battle.
The classic 80s Dungeons & Dragons cartoon heroes engage in a fierce battle with the dragon-god Tiamat. I don’t see any sign of Dungeon Master, though. Isn’t that always the way?
It looks like the action scene was done just in time, Shelia, the honourable thief, is starting to turn invisible, and the diorama brings that moment to life cleverly with transparent material.
The limited edition is made from polystone, although some parts may contain resin, PCV, metal and fabric. The $1,400 purchase isn’t due to ship until at least halfway through next year. We don’t know how few of the models will be made, and while Iron Studios won’t be the only retailer, it may become harder to get. The pre-order deposit is %10 of the price.
Tiamat’s red head is gearing up to blast some fire while both the white and blue heads are in action. The 1/20th scale dragon looks suitably fierce.
The officially licensed Dungeons & Dragons model also shows a lava pit that Bobby, the barbarian’s mighty strike, has opened at the dragon’s feet.
Based on the classic role-playing game of the same name, the animated series called Dungeons & Dragons was a big hit among the 1980s animations. The show features the adventures of six young friends who, upon getting on a roller coaster at an amusement park, end up crossing a portal that takes them to another world. Dressed in clothes that characterize the skills they have acquired in this different world, they received, from an old dwarf known as Dungeon Master, powerful magical weapons, living great adventures, always seeking the long-awaited return to Earth.
