Yeah, I think they had enough prior material to go on that they didn't have to worry about Disney. Also, regarding comments upthread, I don't think it was a Disney-partnered pet because it would have surely been advertised that way. Disney is not one to leave their name of something.

As for the Luck Dragon, yes, the movie is a Warner Bros property, not Disney. I suspect, like many others, that they ran into copyright issues. Too bad, the 1st version was adorable. The red one, not so much.

I liked the earlier version, I think it was cute and I loved the fact that it looked like Falkor, that is one of my favorite stories!

The red one looks like it's coated in nail polish, to me... .

I did like the pink and creme better. I buy pets not for what they look like but for the items they have.

These are my thoughts on the new dragon

1) yup looked like Clifford got morphed

2) Well it will be nice for the boys.

3) not the prettiest firepalce but at least it is not pink. I am gettiing a little tired of pink.

4) I could use that fireplace in a more rustic theme.

5) Just wondering out of all the pages and pages of posters to this thread what percentage are girls. I would say at least 85%. Wonder how the boys feel?

I probably would not have bought the pink/creme dragon but it would have been a nice match with my other purplish dragon. But probably would not since the book colors took away from how pretty the fireplace was.

My suggestions is change the tone of the red to match other items on Webkinz. Then it may work. Right now I think it will clash with most things.

Why is it red? I liked it the original way, so I hope this isn't intentional and permanent. I hope they fix this kinda glitch soon.

Thanks for the information!

I love the original images and was looking forward to purchasing this pet. I more than dislike the red and definately will not buy this now. Ganz it is too bad that you just can't make up your ------mind.
