This is a build I did at the same time my 10 year old daughter was building her storm dragon.
About this creation
We had discovered that the last two LEGO Elves dragons that my daughter got each had an extra wing, so 1 Bricklink order later and we had 2 pairs of wing and 2 dragons heads. We decided to each build a LEGO Elves style dragon, agreeing that they had to seat at least one Elves mini doll.
My daughter choose her head and wings first, leaving me with the daunting task of building in the rare to us color of dark blue. Being a Denver Broncos NFL fan, dark blue of course goes with orange.
After she set up her dragons body with most of the ball joints plates, I was left with those types, ball joint bricks, and click joints to make mine. It became clear very early that I only had large ball joint bricks and click joints for 2 legs. So the bipedal dragon it was then. And those legs set the scale for the entire dragon.
The earthquake dragon has evolved to a ground based existence, with its small wings only used for display and communication purposes when meeting with other dragons.
It uses is rather large and powerful and legs and feet paired with magic to cause localized earthquakes as a defense mechanism.
Somewhere along the line we ended up with a dark blue Bionicle mask, that has beenn sitting in our loose blue brick drawer for years. Due to the lack of dark blue parts, I was forced into using it for the first time ever and found a way to mount it at the back of the dragons head. It actually worked out really well.
The mask covers the connections for the dragons gray horns, with each rib being equal to 10 years of growth. You can also see the yellow LEGO Elves mini doll saddle in this picture.
We also don't have a lot of loose orange parts (thanks to building orange Porsche's) so I ended up attaching the flexible orange tubes as part of the dragons ornamentation.
Here is the earthquake dragon lying down to rest.
