New this week! From the How to Train Your Dragon movie (and also the TV show Dreamworks Dragons Defenders of Berk) comes this smaller Toothless Night Fury, which is somewhere between an Applause collectible PVC figure and a normal action toy. The price is somewhat high for its size and feature set, but seeing as how the last toys from this movie were Walmart-exclusives and are mostly long since sold-out, odds are kids discovering this movie are more than willing to shell out. An entire line is out, featuring larger dragons, plush toys, and sction toys of varying sizes. Also, he's so new I can't find him online yet - I found one at a Toys R Us this week.
At about 2-inches tall, he's the perfect size for a desk toy or something you give a small child to shut them up for ten minutes. The figure is mostly unpainted, with a good sculpt covered in warty, lizardlike skin. He has textured wings and a full tail, not the slightly damaged one seen in the movie. The only deco can be found on his eyes, which are still largely black except for a hint of green as he looks off to the side. It's not a complex toy, but the cat-like dragon is pretty cute. If you're in to such things.
The figure has four foot peg holes for some reason, which I don't understand as he has no leg movement and stands perfectly on his own. The only moving part is his head, as the figure can spin his noggin around if you're so inclined. If this were two or three bucks, I'd crown it the best thing you buy all month. If it were a Happy Meal toy, it'd be a dang good one. At $7, you're gonna have to really like this kind of dragon character and probably very much specifically wanting this dragon. As toys go it's not exactly on par with, say, a Pheyden or a Spider-Man or even a Schleich PVC collectible creature. I expect it'll be pretty popular with the kids and the wives of toy columnists.
