The Hideous Zippleback
Here is the Hideous Zippleback from the Dreamworks film "How to Train your Dragon". The film is also from the "loosely-based" book adaptation.
About this creation

My 4th dragon for my "How to train your Lego Dragon" series.

This sly two-headed dragon is the largest and the most unusual
of the dragon species in the viking world.

One head breathes flamable gas while the other head lights it by making sparks, creating lethal explosions.



Zipplebacks are solitary, preferring to hunt alone.
At sundown, it prowls the dark forests for it's victims.



Ruffnut and Tuffnut are engaging the horrible beast, but are likely to get overwhelmed.




After 3 months the Zippleback is finally completed. It was the most expensive of my dragons because of my lack in green parts (which is no longer a problem for me now), all thanks to Bricklink.



Since the background worked out so perfectly (and I think I over did it) I will use it again when I introduce the Nightfury Version 2.0.
The brick pine trees are NOT of my original design. I just borrowed them for this occasional scene.

Plus more shots of the scenery will be posted on Flickr when the time comes.

Here is a WIP shot of my Zippleback some months back.

I am hoping to build one of these soon, but I don't currently have enough green pieces. I would like to make mine unique (as in not copy yours). Do you have any suggestions on the dragons zipples? I like your horns, but I am thinking of doing something different. All in all seeing yours is a bit daunting. I will have to purchase a lot of pieces to finish mine, so it may be a while before it gets done!

I think I like the base almost as much as the dragon! Great job, looks a lot like it.

Quoting Jeremy Mueller Really awesome dragon. Can you tell me where you got the wings?
They're from the set 7048-1 Troll Warship (if you were looking for the exact set). But I got these from Bricklink.

This more than works for me. After you finish the whole series, this movie will be effectively closed as a reasonable target for other builders to MOC.

A colorfully laid-out diorama with pleasant landscaping and an enormous dragon and kick-butt trees to top it off? Definitely gets my attention! I really like the technique you used for the dragon's necks.

That is awesome. You do an excellent job making your sets and an environment around them. I can't wait to see more of your How To Train Your Dragon stuff.
