This is a superb bit of LEGO engineering, especially since it could have just been a static Dragon lazed over gold. Thankfully he has gone the extra mile and made a fully pose-able Smaug.
To save on buying masses of coins the horde is mostly gold foil imprinted with the LEGO logo. As for Smaug’s wings, they are pieces of vinyl.
You have to hope that when Desolation of Smaug comes out later this year the official LEGO incarnation of him looks this good.
What do you think of this LEGO masterpiece?
