Very cool! If you can get some mini figs holding the poles underneath the dragon, that would be awesome!

That's what I want to do. I was at the Lego store yesterday looking for all black minifigs at the BaM station. Unfortunately they didn't have the right parts I needed. I also don't feel like dropping $40 for minifigs at the moment.

It will be better if the dragon in red and orange color. In chinese culture, no dragon in white and blue for celebrating new year. In fact, the combination of white and blue color means an unhappy event for Chinese. ;-)

I know white is the color of death. :what?: I'd need to buy a new dragon head from Bricklink to start another dragon.
