I'm with Jang in thinking that the dragon in Kai's Fire Dragon (71701) leaves a lot to be desired. Sure, it's a '4+' set, but even so... Still, I bought the set. For one thing, I like the design of the ninja minifigure, Kai, and the side build. More importantly, I was drawn to the parts for the dragon's head, torso front and legs. They deserved to be part of a much better dragon. So I MOCed this, a hybrid Eastern-Western dragon: It's meant to be an actual dragon, not a mech as Kai's dragon is, I think. What the pictures don't convey well is its size. I didn't set out to create a dragon that was particularly small or large, just a beast that had its parts in proportion. In the end, it came in at 12" (>30cm) long with a wingspan of over 12" (31cm). The wings were inspired by/modded from the phoenix in Flinx's Ultimate Phoenix (70221). The rest is MOC. I don't normally give MOCs names, but I have dubbed this one Redux after the word 'redux' (presented in a new way/revived) as it is just that, a 71701 redux, and also a play on the 'Red' in 'Redux' because of the dragon's dominant colour. Questions? Comments? Quivering at the prospect of being this guy's lunch?
