Sutherland Dragon mini from Wizkids


As part of the 50th anniversary of the publication of D&D occurring this month*, WizKids has announced a Red Dragon mini based on David Sutherland's cover for the Holmes Basic Set, which is available for pre-order now and will be released later this year.

Pre-order it here:

WizKids Classic Red Dragon

The full text from the product page reads:

"A fiery peril to adventurers of editions, new and old, the red dragon has remained a mainstay of fantasy villainy. Celebrate this classic D&D threat with our new D&D Icons of the Realms: 50th Anniversary - Classic Red Dragon Boxed Miniature (Set 31)! 

This set includes the red dragon as depicted on the cover of the 1977 Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set. The beast among monsters. The tyrant among kings. The dragon among dragons."

Thanks to Josh and Leroyd20 on Twitter for a heads up on this release.

*Specifically, this upcoming weekend per the Playing at the World blog.


  1. I wish they would have included a medium-sized miniature for scale. I've no idea how big the figure is. Is it larger than the one included in the random sets, or more or less the same size but in a different pose with treasure? The price does not help, either... Could go either way, with the rarity...

  2. I wish they posted the size, and I miss the jewels embedded in its chest scale gaps. But it does look great.
