You Can Buy This Affordable Spyro Figure for $325
Do you love Spyro? No, really. Do you LOVE Spyro? If you really do, you might want to check out First 4 Figures’ latest figurine which brings the lovable dragon to your living room for just $324.99. You’re reading that right. This high-end figure, which as you can see above is based upon his original look and not his Skylanders style, costs just under $325. That’s a considerable chunk of change.
Strangely, the description on the store page doesn’t actually talk about the figure itself, but rather gives an overview of the series.
Spyro the Dragon was first introduced in 1998. He’s known as a young, energetic purple dragon with huge horns and spikes that resemble a mohawk. Spyro is portrayed as mischievous and curious dragon with little regard for his own safety. Spyro is also known as being stubborn and has a somewhat cocky attitude but he’s a courageous hero as well.
In the original series, Gnasty Gnorc has trapped all of the dragons (except for Spyro) in crystal. He must then travel across the Dragon Realms saving the trapped dragons and finally defeating Gnasty.
Spyro’s attacks consist of using his long horns to ram his opponents or breathing fire at them. For most of the games, Spyro has a dragonfly companion by the name of Sparx. Sparx represents Spyro’s health. Sparx’s color relates to how much health Spyro has. Spyro can regain health by eating butterflies that appear when attacking enemies.
That’s not exactly helpful for those who want to know more about the figure, but thankfully there’s a 52-minute long video that First 4 Figures uploaded to YouTube that goes into excruciating detail. Check it out below to get a good look at the very large figurine:
In the video, they show off the exclusive version of the figurine (which costs the same amount as the regular, so make sure you pre-order the right one if you’re getting it). This comes with a bunch of nice extras including gems, a light-up base, and a nice piece of artwork that recreates the original game’s cover. Check it out in its full glory below:
Those interested will be able to pre-order the Spyro the Dragon figurine on July 18 over at First 4 Figures’ website. If, like most people, you can’t drop $325 right now, it can be paid in installments via Flexipay.
