Remco gave birth to the Warrior Beasts (WB) action figures in the early 80s, jumping the bandwagon of Mattel's MotU success. The steed was sold "exclusively" in a playset consisting of the Dragon and a WB action figure (that was regularly Ramar. It was shown with Guana on WB cardbacks, though) . There's not much known about the Fire Dragon. Besides that at least two versions of Fire Dragons existed (one with a ruff, the other one without).
Finding a boxed set (that would also mean to get more information on the Fire Dragon) ain't easy. For a Kraut like me, it's nearly impossible. WB have never been released in Germany. Anyways, it's not too hard to find a Fire Dragon complement. We've been flooded with cheap, ugly rubber dinosaurs from China in the 80s. And some of them had exactly the same molds like the Remco ones.
Obviously Remco was either using the same molds or did simply snatch some ready molded dragons, to repack them with their WB. For a collector it's quite hard to tell the difference, if a loose Fire Dragon is "original" or not. (Which probably means, if it was originally boxed within a WB playset.)
I got two variations of Fire Dragons so far. One is marked "Made in China" at the ruff and "China" on one foot. The other one is marked "Hong Kong" on one foot and has a logogram on the other. (Unfortunatley I can't read any Chinese. So I'd be thankful if anybody could give me a hand here.)
The steeds have different paintjobs. The China one has a red, the Hong Kong one a merely yelllow ruff. The teeth are different, too. According to pictures from other collections, I'd tell the one with the red ruff is the "original" one. But I could also imagine that both have never been packed as WB. Maybe both have been - I just can't tell, and as long as nobody can, I stick to Popper. They're both Fire Dragons as long as there's no proof they're not. And I'm just loving them!
