I stumbled across this on eBay yesterday:


** expired eBay auction **




I know there were more of them.  Is there a list anywhere?  Or better yet, I site with pictures of these model kits?

They also had Orc's Lair. I have them both, but I've never really looked at them. I thought they had one called Dragon's Lair or something, but I've never been able to find it.

I haven't been able to find that one either, Frank, though I've only done some semi-serious looking at best.

I imagine, like many products, the line was folded before the Dragon one was released. A shame. When I unpack mine I'll take a second look at them.

We have owned both of the ones Deadlord mentioned. The dragon one was never made as far as we know. Never seen one anyway.

There's definitely a dragon and treasure pile in one of the sets (don't recall which, offhand, but the figures for both were based on the Grenadier dragon Action Art set molds.

I have never had this model kit but...

I have that dragon miniature visible in the center of the ad....the exact same miniature.
