There have been several sculpts of the Dragon, which shares an appearance with the Grand Dragon mech:
- The original single-piece mini from the late 1980s. The surface is rough and textured
- A 2nd casting was produced in the 1990s and is slightly larger and comes in two pieces. It has smooth surfaces.
- Beginner Set version, which is a single-piece modification of the 2nd casting that is attached to a partial hex base.
- A variant of the 2nd casting was released in 2007 with the Sword and Dragon Mech pack.
