zOomosaurus.  This zombie dragon doll is the 2nd creation of the zOombees collection.  He's a classic punk dragon.  He likes to be different to the other dragons.  He doesn't like flying, shoot laserbeams from his eyes and breathe fire, he is more interested in his looks.  He spends one hour a day keeping his Mohawk spiky and his remaining teeth sharp and sparkly.  He also likes listening to punk rock, it makes him feel angry and alive, and now you're going to make it yours.

14-05-12:  zOomosaurus is starting to come along.  In fact he's looking really punk as at the moment.  Still figuring how to do his wing, but so far i'm really happy how he's looking.

01-05-12:  Working hard on my next project zOomosaurus.  Not too happy on how its turning out at the moment, so will be starting over again.
