I Want One: Super Posable Ball-Joint Dragon Pets

ball-joint-dragons-1.jpg

These are the ball-jointed dragons made by CuartosDolls in Russia (at least I think it's Russia). They can be posed in almost any position thanks to every body segment having its own ball joint. Want one? Well you're in luck, because the maker is selling them, with white dragons going for €165 (~$220), and every other color including metallics for €240 (~$320). I want one of every color, and I'm going to stop-motion animate them and make my own show called 'GW and the Luck Dragons'. We'll go on adventures and fight evil and woo busty princesses and all kinds of other fun stuff. You know those warnings they put in front of TV shows that tell you whether they contain violence or drug use or adult themes? Well I want it to have all of those, plus other ones that haven't even been invented yet.

Hit the jump for a bunch more shots of your new best friend.

Thanks to my pal Terry, who once told me he'd rather be a butterfly than a dragon. A butterfly! He's mentally ill.

    Dude, any luck getting these? The links to the guy's site are dead. :(

  • Suomy Nona

    im thinking i might make some. with wings, and a range of designs..
    hmm.. just curious, what would a purchaser consider a reasonable price for a quality product? or a custom design (someone here mentioned they wanted to paint one like smaug, i could recreate smaug for example)

  • Maxine Felch

    I would take the black and paint it myself. Black is an excellent base color for dry brushing to make it look more real. Wings would be nice but I'm sure the price would skyrocket with all those joints. :)

  • Drake Saber

    How would i be able to get one without having to travel halfway round the world?

  • Capitalmind

    Let's see the video already!! :)

  • Frances

    I want to purchase a white one and paint it myself to save 100 dollars, but i think they are amazing as is! id probably paint it to look like Smaug...

  • rrrusty
  • Ruben Villasante

    where can i order one of these????

  • Miguel Valdez-Lopez

    Oh boy. What if you attach the biggest one of these to a smaller quadrocopter.

    That would be awesome.

    Saphire blue one please, so I can name her Saphira

    Also my wallet hurts

  • Carissa Lynn Van Raak

    aw, they are absolutely adorable <3

  • Shane Anderson

    Yeah, I would buy a white one and paint it to make it mine. Wings would be nice so he could pick up the mail for me.

  • qwert`

    so all non whites are the same price? why would you get mat-black when you can get that last one with all the details?

    But they need wings anyway

  • Amber DJ

    I think that last picture is just an example of how a dragon can be painted to look awesome. With most resin ball-jointed figures like these, they tend to come blank so the owner can paint them however they choose.

  • IngusMW

    this, is what 3d printers are made for...

  • Daisy Church

    aw, the link to the maker isn't working; just looping back to geekologie's home page...

  • Amber DJ

    http://cuartosdolls.diary.ru/p... <-- This one should work :)

  • Kyle Morgan

    They're neat, but they need wings, and are way overpriced.

  • Amber DJ

    Actually, considering how many joints they have, AND considering the fact that they're made out of resin (which is a more expensive plastic than vinyl, and it's harder to work with than other kinds of plastic, as well), $220-$300 is a decent price for these artisan dragons. I've seen ball-jointed dolls (the humanoid ones, not awesome dragons like these) with fewer joints that are well over $500.
