Medieval Castle Mascot - Fire breathing Dragon Bobbie
About this creation
Fire Breathing Dragon Bobbie is the Mascot of Castle Library . Her real name is Roberta but her nickname is Bobbie. A vegetarian, Bobbie is always asked to Castle Library BBQ parties because she's really good at starting the grills red hot ...but Bobbie tends to overcook things to a black crispy char - so usually she is not asked to cook...
This moc is an exercise in a variety of connections. The claws and tails use ball joints. The dragon wings use hinge joints. The neck use ball friction joints. The mouth uses a bar and clip joint.
The dragon wings are from my public library's Lego collection which I am rebalancing and upgrading. The kids at my local public library requested to keep the Dragon wings in the public library's Lego collection - albeit - the public library did not get the dragon that originally came with these wings in the bulk Lego purchase that the Lego Yellow dragon wings came with. So I built a dragon for these orphan dragon wings from my own Lego collection which I am donating to my local public library. The dragon is build mainly from grey and yellow to match the dragon's wing color.
This dragon turns out to be a favorite among the kids at my local public library. The kids treat Bobbie the Dragon like a ready made toy and I have to make sure that kids don't fight over it...The Bobbie's castle was torn apart in less than a month but Bobbie the dragon has stayed mainly intact over the course of several months ....at the end of this month - I will be rebalancing and cleaning the local public library's Lego collection and if Bobbie the Dragon is still with us I'll do some more photos of Bobbie ....never thought the kids would take a shine to this kind type of Lego creation... so far none of my other public library Lego donations of aircraft, houses, bionicle robots, space walkers, minifigures, and castles have ever survived this long. I need to make Bobbie the Dragon a companion so kids won't fight over it.....
I've already donated the dragon to my public library's Lego collection so I won't be posting any more photos of this first version - I will see about making a version 2 - which I will post on this webpage...

I like the dragon, but I would like a more in focus shot of the head, maybe a few different angles too.
Started to say, "Cool-looking dragon!" But that might be an insult to a dragon. Nice color scheme. I need to learn to use some of those joints. Hmmm, if Medieval times were so dragon-infested, why don't we have dragons today?
