TOYCO: Dragonriders & Demons



UPDATE 11/21/15 I found a new version of the large playset that comes in an all English box.  This seems to be Toyco's store version of the large playset using thier own box design rather than the DFC box copy.

Canada's Toyco is a shameless imitator of DFC.  They put out playsets, cards and bags of fantasy figures in 1983 that closely mirror DFC's Dragonriders of the Styx.

The yellow wizard is fairly rare.

I think these are bootlegs but I am not certain.

*

Unlike the DFC dragonrider, Toyco's can be removed.

Toyco's demons are actually a little better quality than the DFC demons.

*

The mini guy is about the same size as the barbarians.

These mini versions are very rare.

This is the version sold in stores, it is a flat out copy of DFC's box art and even has pictures of DFC figures.  Photo from an ebay auction.


This is the catalog version of the playset with the original box art in the picture above.





































































































































































































































































































The picture on the side of the box shows bright green dragonriders, but the ones in the box are standard green.







This playset is very rare.
