... What? What problems? The general problems I've heard about the classic dragons were that they weren't poseable (which is fixed in the newer dragons), and that they weren't big enough (fixed in the newer dragons). To which problems are you referring?

I'm afraid you've lost me.
My problem with the fantasy dragons was that they were a little too
organic (not quite LEGO-y enough), and the flames for their mouths made them look silly. I suppose I could add that it'd be nice to see some additional joints (like folding wings), but that's not all that bad. I suppose they also look a little more cartoony-evil, rather than iconic like the old classic dragons.
Anyway, I really don't understand what you're talking about if you're saying that they suffered the same problems as the viking dragons and the classic dragons. As near as I can tell, they fixed ALL the problems of both, but introduced new problems all their own. But all in all, I found them to be probably the best dragons that LEGO's offered to date.
