Vayland Dragon

Hey all,

You may remember Patrick Biggs' Vayland Dragon from a couple of years ago. Well, he's rebuilt and improved it, resulting in Vayland Dragon redux:

At first glance I thought it was by Cameron Germaine but I guess not. The wings are terrific as is the over all shape of the body. The courseness of it really adds to the creators perception of it. Fantastic build. :D

Normally I dislike using Bionicle parts, but that is a stunning piece of art.

I hope the creator pops on by the forum sometime so he can enjoy our comments. I think this is amazing. I don't like Bionicle pieces, but he's done excellent work with them. I also like the use of the Ninja wings.

ah so they were ninja wings. I was wondering about that. anyway this thing looks great! I wonder how poseable it is.
He who thinks you should look at the box that says "Quaraga" if you want to find out his username (about as useful to you as his real name). he only wants you to look so he can laugh about you looking there because he's a total smart...

These are not EXCLUSIVELY ninja wings. These wings can also be found here. http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=5921-1 But they do show up in ninja sets. They would be rather hard to procure that many if they were just ninja. :)

Haha, I love Cameron dearly, but this made me laugh. I've actually been at this for nearly half-a-decade longer than Cameron, and I guess we both got lucky that the Flickr community exploded at the same time we both joined it. :)

I hope the creator pops on by the forum sometime so he can enjoy our comments.

I did, thanks! :)

This is completely amazing. The wings are brilliant and the "stacked" pieces on the shoulders and neck give a nice scaly look to it. Beautiful.

You should incorporate this awesome dragon into a larger MOC :)

And so he slipped into the forest, vanishing without a trace, leaving his pursuers lost without ideas, while he went to finish his MOC's.
