Dragonriders of the Styx - Dragon Man (1984)

Dragonriders of the Styx - Dragon Man (1984)
It's Day 4 of MONSTER MONTH!  Dragonriders of the Styx was a cheapo sword and sorcery toy line from the 1980s that featured lots of weird and creepy monsters.  Yesterday I wrote about the "Guliz the Ogre" action figure from this line (http://misfitdaydream.blogspot.com/2016/10/dragonriders-of-styx-guliz-ogre-1983.html), and a few years ago I wrote about the "Demon" (http://misfitdaydream.blogspot.com/2014/10/countdown-to-halloween-random-toy-grab.html).

Face of the Dragon Man

Today I'm featuring "Dragon Man."  The figure has seven points of articulation (the standard 5 points you usually see on vintage 3 3/4" figures like this, plus additional hinges at the knees).  Dragon Man is cast in solid green plastic, with the only paint being on his eyes.  He originally came with a sword and shield (not the sword I have in my photos).

"In the first chamber was a Dragon-Man, clearing away the rubbish from a caves mouth; within, a number of Dragons were hollowing the cave."
