Thank you!

I hope they look a lot nicer in person.  These designs do not look as nice as some of the older issues. 
I will still be buying a few of them, but it looks like none of these are even close to the beauty of the
 2000 Scallop.

Agree with you, htey could do better, especially a colored one, I was looking forward to see the design. But probably in real it will look better, indeed.

Look at the good side:

Holders of past dragon designs don't have to worry that other collectors are going to liquidate theirs in order to buy up the 2012 ones.
Prices of earlier dragons are bound to increase!

True, but I am concerned that the overall demand for dragons will be less than it could be if the new design were as good as the 88s and 00s

Actually since the OX of 2009 came out, the color version is truly ugly..... I prefer pre 2009 Lunars, they are much more beautiful. THis color dragon looks more like a Snake.

I also think that CHNGC is trying to make it "modern looking" while its the classic looking that suits Lunars much much more....

Maybe The Dragon should go back in....

                                       (maybe someone was "Puffing the Magic Dragon")

Why do they do that?   Someone got paid to "modernize" the beautiful classic Brittania, too....
