 dragun's head







Mattel No. 9858 Dragun!







Most of my friends that collect Shogun Warriors like Dragun the best. Something about his bright red color or about the spikes emanating from his head really appeals to people. The axe throwing hand and the disc shooter heightens the appeal. There are at least four releases of Dragun with at least two box variations:

The first release was like the other Shogun initial releases: Soft head, varying screw/rivet location and wheel trucks moulded into the bottom of the feet. Small Japanese language decals are on the chest and shooting hand (instructions!). The Southern Cross (aka "Star Shooter") straps onto the arm (which incidentally doesn't have the two grooves for the later shooters to clip-onto) with a strap/buckle arrangement. The first version comes with 10 projectile "shurikens" (later versions only come with 6) and 3 axes (as a note, the first version axes have a spiked mace coming out of the top while later versions have a smooth ball). The boots have inverted "V" decals and the back of the gloves have spinning Saw blades projecting towards the rear

The second release also has spinning Saw blades projecting from the backs of Dragun's forearms. The Southern Cross (aka "Star Shooter") looses its strap and gains a large plastic clip. The clip slides into two grooves on the right arm. This version has two screws attaching the wheel trucks to its feet.

The box for first and second release Dragun reads:

  • Star Projectiles
  • Fist holds battle-axes
  • Shoulder spikes
  • Head rotates 360 degrees
  • Star shooter
  • Arms raise & lower
  • Buzz saws
  • Leg Rollers
    No Batteries! No Electricity!
    Star Shooter detaches! Strap it to your own arm!

    CONTENTS: DRAGUN™ warrior 23 1/2" tall, with 3 battle-axes and detachable star shooter plus 10 projectiles & accessories. Arms are detachable. Comes FULLY ASSEMBLED. Axes not for use with all SHOGUN© Warriors.

  • The third release simplifies the figure with the removal of the Spinning Saw blades

    The fourth release has metallic lightening bolt decals on the fronts of the lower legs.

    The third & forth release Dragun box has text changes, although the images are the same. The printers codes: R6493> P643>9858" are added to the front while the sides read:

  • Arms raise & lower
  • Shooting stars
  • Leg Rollers
  • Fist holds battle-axes
  • Head rotates 360 degrees
  • Arms raise & lowerShoulder spikes
  • Star shooter
