Most of us haven't grown up to possess our own dragon, settling for the mundanity of riding a mid-class Ford, Hyundai or Toyota to work. What if I said that can all change for you?

(What if I just exaggerated a bit for effect?)

The German-crafted Steam-Powered Dragon is powered by a nickel-plated brass boiler double-acting Wilesco steam engine, which drives the dragon's tin construction to its limits. At 8 inches tall, we wouldn't call the dragon rideable, but maybe if you got really drunk or something...

100 dragons are available for $1500 apiece. [pucciManuli via Nerd Approved]
