That dragon has red eyes, however.


Although, come on, that just sucks. For ANY dragon.

the new spyro character looks like a mutant gremlin on high dosages of crack or morpheme.

I completely agree with the statement above...

Personally, I'd rather not have another game if it comes to this awful character design.

All this hating on the new Spyro talk will die down when some of the fans grow use to it anyways. We haven't even played the game to judge it..

I find his fugly new face quite endearing. Think of all the Mary Sues we'll never have to read fanfics about because of that glorious ugly mug! smilie

But, really, I'm sick to death of perfect, cutesy dragons. These guys were horrible ugly beasts in mythology and it's fun to see that coming back. I'm also a fan of interesting character designs and this is nothing if not very interesting. smilie So, yeah, I'm all for goblin Spyro.

I'm with her on this, Goblin Spyro is a-ok by my standards.

Now, off to do pointless fan art of this discovery. *runs off into the sunset*

I was wondering the same thing also.

And then it hit me, His horns, that devilishly mischievous smirk, they're basing their version of Spyro directly from the concept art! (or at least that's what I think)

Take a look see:

I think it's the horns.
They're curved differently than ISpyro's and LSpyro's.

Hey, I think you've got something there, Sheeps. smilie I could tell right off the bat that they were using Insomniac Spyro for inspiration (horns, facial proportions to some degree, expression and stance). That's part of what endears this little goblin to me. He looks like he'd be a spunky kind of guy with looks like that, which is fun to imagine.

#22 Posted: 06:11:50 11/02/2011
Also the character designer also designed the characters from Shrek, Tom Hester.

Spinning in it's grave (finally) probably. smilie Don't worry, like the Classic fans before you, your nostalgia can live forever. There's always fanfics, more fanart than you can shake a stick at, and tons of screen shots and art. It's more than the Classic fans ever got.

For the Skylanders fans on dA, I'm working on a group for all five of you. smilie

I beg to differ. Spyro was unique being the one remotely major dragon who wasn't even partilly played out as 'ZOMG MASSIVE EVIL DRAGON! GUNNA KILL US!' apart from perhaps Toothless wo doesnt really count.

Where've you been? I grew up reading friendly dragon books:

Pit Dragon trilogy by Jane Yolen

Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey

Enchanted Forrest Chronicles by Patricial C. Wrede

And don't forget Figment, Pet's dragon Eliot, Haku from Spirited Away, Saphira in Eragon, Draco from Dragonheart, the dragons in EE Knight's Age of Fire series, the Temeraire novels...

I was talking about the major ones in games and movies. There are tons of dragon books out there, who doesn't know that?

And were there ever cute dragons back then in '98?

I like it. I'm excited for the game AND toys and I think the little troll-faced Spyro is pretty precious. This looks like it'll be the closest thing to my dream next gen Spyro (especially with the promise of merchandise). The fandom needs to quit being a bunch of tittybabies and just be happy for once.

(Besides. The less "epic" and serious LOS style the better)

I'm almost 30 and those toys are what I've wanted since Spyro came out when I was in high school. smilie I have a herd of My Little Ponies under my desk (partly my husband's fault smilie), so I have no problem with having a goblin Spyro in the house. Even less problem with a potential Elora. smilie

Also, more goblin Spyro art.
