Sweet! Really nice execution. What's funny is that I was just musing over an idea similar to this just the other day :)

Wow, that's pretty amazing.
The dragon itself is a masterpiece and adding the mountain and real fire makes it almost unbelievable.
Must copy/paste for future inspiration. :)

Bruce, your ability to find these incredible builds never ceases to amaze me!

This dragon is wonderful. While the flame may constitute non LEGO part usage, the end result is so awe-inspiring that I would imagine that it would be easy for all but the most staunch purists to overlook. The dragon itself is simply beautiful. It's nice seeing the prefabricated wings come together so seamlessly with a brick-built dragon. The result is simply perfect.

I would never have enough guts to put one of my precious bricks near a lighter.

I do love the scene though. Aside from the awesome fire-breathing-action, the rocks and the dragon itself are very well done. The dragon especially does very well conforming to the rocks and looking realistic.
