|Out of the box: Hiccup and Drago|
The majority of the HTTYD toys that have been released are of the dragons - and some of those are stunning, although I've held off on picking any up because they tend to be either too large (and being about to move house, I'm trying not to bring home any new large items) or so small that I'd be afraid of misplacing them. So instead I decided to check out a couple of the human figures that are sold as accessories to the dragons (they're designed to be able to sit on the backs of the associated figures).

The set that I picked up is called "Viking Warriors: Hiccup vs. Drago", and includes the main hero and villain from last year's sequel, a weapon for each of them and a helmet for Hiccup. As is standard for small scale play pieces, the faces on these two are not terribly detailed - but to my surprise, that wasn't true of their bodies. The detailing on Hiccup's armour, boot, prosthetic foot, and skydiving harness as well as that on Drago's coat, boots, prosthetic arm and hair (the hair is truly epic, although being moulded, it limits the shoulder movement quite a bit).
