When I was little I thought that the whole dragon was there, full body and all. I think it would be hard to replace or to add anything to it since it is heavy enough already(?) I agree, more draping plz. The head looks like it's floating from the side.
Well, it's really zoomed in, so from where people stand, it does look like that.. and you can't really change it, the head has to be able to rise and lower very fast, and too much stuff on the dragon will make that harder! Also, a full body wouldnt work because the dragons head rises at one point, and that'd just look weird..

Lol sorry I don't think I made it clear, I know this is a 'zoom' photo; however I want to know what you guys would create if you had the choice (and the money). This is more of a fun topic than a serious one.
Hmm... I think based on the logistics of the show, it would be near impossible to change the dragon into anything else other than a "head on a stick" with some drapes to cover it.
In a perfect world, I would think this would be the opportunity for imagineering to come up with the largest audio-animatronic ever built. I remember in some of the disneyland commercials before the 50th campaign, they had some stock footage for the fantasmic show and I distinctly remember it showing a dragon with a body and a purple belly (i think this is what you remember ChiiDesu). If it was possibly to recreate this version of the dragon for the actual show, it would be pretty awesome!
