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!
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.
