Dungeons & Dragons’ most gruesome dragon gets its own miniature


WizKids has announced plans to produce a figurine of one of Dungeons & Dragons’ most hideous monsters. Yesterday ComicBook.com reported that WizKids was planning to produce a new line of miniatures featuring monsters and characters seen in Fizban’s Dragon Treasure, a recently released D&D rulebook that focuses on dragons. Today, WizKids announced that their Icons of the Realms: Fizban Dragon Hoard the set would include two gargantuan premium figures – the Elder Brain Dragon and the Dragonite.

The Elder Brain Dragon is a dragon with the Elder Brain of a Mindflayer colony locked to its back. Not only does this provide the dreaded Elder Brain an extra level of mobility, the dragon also possesses a gruesome breath weapon that spews mind-slaying tadpoles at all around it. If a Mind Flayer tadpole latches onto someone in the path of the breath weapon, they are doomed to undergo ceremorphosis, a process in which a person is converted into a Mind Flayer.

Meanwhile, a dracohydra is a dragon created by wizards who attempt to harness the power of the chromatic dragon Tiamat. By combining dragon magic with a hydra, they created the dracohydra, a creature with all the powers of a dragon that continually regrows heads and can fire multiple types of attacks with breath weapons.

Both WizKids figures are gargantuan sized figures that should match the size of other recently released dragon figures. The Elder Brain Dragon will have a retail price of $99.99, while the Dragonite will have a retail price of $129.99. You can see renders of both thumbnails below:

Treasure of the Fizban Dragons is one of five D&D books released by Wizards of the Coast in 2021. The new book contains two new subclasses for players, as well as new playable dragonborn variants. Most of the book is dedicated to expanding the dragon lore, with new monsters DMs can use in campaigns, dragon lair maps, and new magic spells and magic items.

Other D&D books released by Wizards of the Coast this year include Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft, a campaign setting for the horror world of Ravenloft, the Feywild Adventure The savage beyond the witch’s light, and the adventure anthology Mysteries of the Candlestick. A campaign book for the Magic: The Gathering world of Strixhaven will also be released in December. Of the five D&D books, the two Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft and Nature beyond the witch’s light received D&D Wizkids miniature sets. Unpainted miniatures featuring Strixhaven characters are also available through Wizkids.

Both dragon figures will be released in March 2022.
