4912 Dragon Knight's Duel [sic] *
« on: February 01, 2011, 19:24:36 »
HF = 42g /$4 = 10.5 g/$



I got this direct from Playmobil rather than Target or a B&M store, and I think this is a cracking blister set. First off, as the figures are properly protected in the blister, they don't stoop or have scratches! Wheee!



The green knight has a round shield, open-face Dragon helmet and regular sword in a proper scabbard, not y-fronts. He also sports a new collar which prevents him raising his hands above waist height, but this is easily popped off if you want to give him a cloak or something else instead. The body printing could have been continued onto his legs as it has for some other Green Knights, but that's a minor quibble.



The winged knight is a splendid sight with a new body printing and matching shield. No y-fronts here either, though I'd prefer a black swordbelt to bright red. I think the silver horns on his helmet may be new too. The colors go well with the other Dark Dragon Knights, while setting this figure apart, maybe as an elite unit, personal bodyguard or temple guard.

At $4 for two figures this is good value for building up forces and I immediately ordered two more sets, and will certainly add yet more in time.


* Correct English would be Dragon Knights' Duel, as there are two knights. The titles I'm using are taken from Playmobil's US website.

Not my theme, Martin, but a useful review.  The green knight's shield looks superb.  The winged knight looks to have a bit of a puzzled expression on his face - maybe due to the wings, I guess.

Great pics Martin! I have bought a few of these blisters for customisation purposes... The winged knight should have had a more angy face in my opinion...

They will make it to Hong Kong this year I guess. But after I own the target carry-box set, and guess might have too many dragon knight at my home. Yet, these two look so different that they are clean and neat, which I love!!!
