Two New Schleich Eldrador Figures have joined the star-studded, cast of fantastical creatures, in the realms of Ice World, Lava World, Stone World & Water World. They are the Ice Griffin and Lava Scorpion!
I’m already a fan of the Eldrador products having reviewed four Schleich Eldrador Creatures previously. They don’t disappoint with amazing attention to detail and build quality. These models are built to stand the test of time.
Schleich Eldrador Ice Griffin
The Ice Griffin is armed with several dangerously pointed weapons:
- Pointed claws to pieces and enemies armor
- Sharp pointed peak for pecking and ripping
- Six razor-sharp ice feathers on each enormous wing
- An ice spiked tail with that it can swing with shattering precision,
- And an ear-piercing caw with deafening capabilities.
It’s beautifully made with a well thought out attention to detail. I love how the light shines through the icy tail, beak, mane and wingtips. The dark clawed feet offset the pale body; the two front legs being that of an eagle and the back two that of a lion. The white muscled body has fur detail that merges beautifully into a thick rugged mane that becomes feathers as it turns into eagle-eyed feathers. Add in enormous wings again crafted with exquisite detail and you have a beautifully strong and ferocious creature to protect the realm of the Ice-World.
The wings are enormous and pivot effortlessly around a ball and socket joint. They can lie close in along the length of the body but when extended they make a very beautiful and imposing sight. The Ice Griffin is definitely not a creature to be taken lightly!
The Schleich Eldrador Lava Scorpion
The Lava Scorpion is a very patient lurks that lives hidden amongst the rocks of Lava World.
The Lava Scorpian has a core of hot molten lava that has cooled on it’s outside creating a rock hard exoskeleton. It has
- Red hot, ultra-strong pincers
- Lethal burning stinger
- Large flexible tail for striking multiple attackers at the same time
- hard outer shell for protection
The Lava Scorpian is a textured beastie. Every part of him (including legs) has a rough rock-like texture interspersed with vivid orange to represent the burning molten interior. The Stinger and pincers are made of a translucent orange, crystal-like, plastic that catches the light beautifully.
The tail has two ball and socket joints that both rotate 360 degrees which makes play very interactive as you can swing the tail around to attack enemies. The pincers also have the same ball and socket joint.
