Titan Dragon shown next to the Zagor, with a British one pound coin between.

The Titan Dragon ornament was one of a series of officially licensed Fighting Fantasy Ornaments made by Clarecraft Design, but was not featured in the 2004 re-release of the ornaments.

Fighting Fantasy ReleaseEdit

The Titan Dragon ornament was one of a series of officially licensed Fighting Fantasy Ornaments made by Clarecraft Design. It featured in the original 1992 production under the code "JL02".

The model was actually simply called "Titan", although it was a Dragon and is often referred to as "Titan Dragon"[1], to differentiate it from the other associations with the name Titan that exist in the Fighting Fantasy genre.

The model was based on the Dragon illustrated on the front of the book Titan - The Fighting Fantasy World by Christos Achilleos. In terms of size, it was by the far the largest of the released items, its size being illusrated in the picture above, next to the The Warlock of Firetop Mountain ornament, with a British one pound coin between them.

2003 re-release Anniversary Stamp

The figure shown in the picture above is actually the 2003 Clarecraft anniversary release of the Dragon. This 2003 re-release was not part of a Fighting Fantasy release (1992/3 being the original release of the ornaments; 2005 being the Wizard Books associated re-release). Rather, the piece was re-released on its own tenth birthday such was the popularity of the dragons sculpted by Leigh Pamment. As such, when re-released it was titled "Lord of the Upper Reaches", placing it amongst the series Dragon scupltures of Pamment as opposed to the Fighting Fantasy scupltures (the pieces were called: D901 Defender of the Crags; D902 In Praise of the Skies; D903 Lord of the Upper Reaches; D904 Emergence). The description card that came with this release named the Dragon "Lord of the Upper Reaches (Titan)", giving both names of the piece.

2004 Fighting Fantasy Re-ReleaseEdit

This was one one of three models from the original 13 that was not re-released in the 2004 production of these figurines by Clarecraft. The reasons for the other two not being re-released are clear. The Hydra, was never launched even in the original 1992 production due to the complexity of its design, hence no re-release was possible. The Fighting Fantasy Statue Plaque/Bookend had the Puffin Books logo on it, and so could not be associated with Wizard Books. As for the Titan Dragon, possible theories are a combination of its sheer size, the fact that it has only be re-released a year previously, and also the large price tag associated with the item.
