:shock: HE IS TOO GOOD! He is absolutely astounding! I don't understand how he does it, it is beyond me. The way he figures out how the pieces fit together is just mindbogling.

These new ones are pretty cool, but I don't really like them as much. Construction's excellent anyway though. "Mommy" reminds me of this vig.

Amazing! Simply amazing! :shock: I can't tell how you did it! it boggles the mind! I love that fire in the third one, and the mini-dragons on the fourth, and the sea-serpent one is absolutely brilliant!

You, sir, have blown my mind. :D

Hmm, I wonder why? :wink:

Anyways, I like 'em both. They are not quite as intense as the others, but maybe that was the intent? Great constructions as always!

I don't really like them as much as the others, but they're okay. I like Puppy more, because I find I don't really like the look of the disembodied dragon head. It is an innovative idea though...

Welp, I spotted another scene. Less castley this time, but with a nice re-imagining of the brick-built figure.

My personal favorite detail is the use of the orange flippers in this one.

These Dragons are all amazing. Izzo manages to capture so much detail into such a small scene.

My favourite dragon scene would be Invasion The colour scheme of this dragon is awesome.

I too have been a big fan of Izzo’s work.

Hmmm, this latest, I don't like it as much. Something is lacking in the scene. Anywho, the dragon looks really cool as usual, but I don't like the back of the wings with the bottom of the plates showing, still the design is once again superb. The gole is also cool, if not a bit futuristic looking.

WOW.... Izzo's dragons r amazing. I especially like the sea serpent, and the way the fire was done in the 3rd one was really cool too. Keep up the great work Izzo

Another fantastic scene. I really like the dragon (now my second favorite, after the sea serpent) fighting the golem. The wizard... is a bit odd-looking (as was the first), but it's okay. The only thing I would change would be to make the golem stand out more from the ground, maybe making the ground green.

That's a cool golem! (The dragon is cool too of course)
The golem looks familiar, though... not in Lego form, but in something else... hmm. Very cool, though, I really like all of these! Great work!

Welp, #8 is out and here it is. This one's unique for two reasons, both of them are heads...

Very nice work on this one. I love the settin in the snow, and the battlements. He's done it again.

Wow, I didn't check the forums for a few days and I missed all of these. These are amazing.

Keep up the good work.

His newest work is just amazing. I love the combination that yellow and tan gives to this dragon. Simply great work.

One more head and he would have a beautiful King Gidorah!

This work is amazing, as is all is other work. I love the clever techniques uses to builds the beasts. The neck work on the yellow draggon is amazing.

Great work!! :D
