"Lucky Dragon" with its neck folded.
It has bat-like transparent wings.
Stretching his neck.
Looks quite menacing with the sharp teeth and glowing red eyes.
Here's a video of it breathing fire.
It also spews water.
Up close, the face looks more like Asian style dragon (like the one in Dragonball).
You could feel the heat when it breathe fire.
Not gigantic, but maybe the western dragons in fantasy novels will be about this size if they existed.
Duckie vs Dragon.
At an abandoned dockyard. Lucky Dragon will make another appearance on October 12 at Hachikenya-hama.
