There is one problem with being a grown up How To Train Your Dragon fan — it can be tough to track down anything that isn’t a kids toy. There are some really killer collectibles out there if you know where to look, but digging through the pile of kids toys to find the quality merch can be a headache. So we did it for you! We dug through the depths of the internet, and we’re bringing you the 10 best How to Train Your Dragon Collectibles! We left out the Funkos because we know you know how to find those (the internet–and stores–are full of them).
We’re going to start this list off with something fans of every budget can afford. AllethariasDwagons over on Etsy makes the absolute cutest dragons we’ve ever seen. She sells earrings, keychains, buttons, and our personal favorite, stickers. You can put them on anything: laptops, water bottles, notebooks, foreheads, you name it. Our favorite part is that she didn’t just make Toothless. She made a bunch of the main dragons and offers them for sale. Toothless is excellent, but we love to see the rest of the crew getting some love. She also just added a Light Fury to the set, so grab all five!
How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Movie Poster
Another good find over on Etsy comes from HomeComfortDesignsUS. They print theater quality posters so you can get your hands on a super nice print. This poster is our absolute favorite form The Hidden World. The contrast between The Hidden World Hiccup and his appearance from the first movie warms our frozen Viking hearts. As an added bonus, you can get it in a variety of sizes. So if you don’t have space for a full sized poster, you can get a smaller print. As another bonus? The largest size on the nicest paper is only $11, so this is a collectible anyone can afford.
One of a Kind Hookfang Sculpture
Why does Toothless get all the attention? Sure, he’s the only known Night Fury, and sure he’s got the fact that he’s the Chief of Berk’s dragon going for him. But ask Snotlout which dragon should be the star of the show, and he will tell you without hesitation that it’s Hookfang. This sculpture will cost you a bit of money, but it’s worth it. The attention to detail that ZephyrSculptures puts into every piece is out of this world. If your money is burning a hole in your pocket, we suggest you act fast! As there is only one of these figures, once it’s gone — it’s gone forever.
When the movies are over, how do you bring more How to Train Your Dragon lore into your life? Why, you buy an art book of course! Concept art, early design sketches, and scenery ideas all make it into these fantastic books. One of the most breathtaking parts of the How to Train Your Dragon series has been its stunning visuals. Let the story live on with a book from How to Train Your Dragon, How to Train Your Dragon 2, or How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. All three are guaranteed to bring joy when you slip them onto your shelf.
Limited Edition How To Train Your Dragon 2 Character Pin
If you want to wear your pride on your sleeve, and you want something particularly rare, this pin is the collectible for you. Dreamworks released a set of limited edition character variant pins. So while you could get the standard pins almost anywhere that sold them, these rare variants were much harder to find. The good news is you can still find a few around. They come on a matted board so you can frame it if you can’t bear to take it off the packaging, and with an individually numbered plaque, so you know exactly which pin out of 250 you picked up. With the final installment of the series out now, you should pick it up before some other fan does!
Handmade Replica of Hiccup’s Helmet
If armor is your thing, or you want more from the movie that isn’t dragons, then might we recommend one heck of an excellent replica? This helmet feels like it was ripped from the screen. Sure it has a hefty price tag, but it also would look soooo good on your shelf. Everyone will accept you as the next chief of your tribe when you show up with this incredible helmet. Sadly this fantastic reproduction by BlueFoxProps isn’t recommended for wear (it’s a little small). But it will be a centerpiece in your collection for sure.
Handmade Replica of Hiccup’s Fire Sword
If helmets aren’t really your scene (or if they are and you also want more), this replica of Hiccup’s fire sword is fantastic. Unlike the helmet though, this prop is meant to be used and admired. It was designed by PieceOfCakeCosply (who also makes an INCREDIBLE set of Hiccup Armor if you have money to burn). Whether you’re carrying it at a con or displaying it on a shelf, people will be raving over the impeccable detail and the beautiful craftsmanship. This piece isn’t cheap, but it’s worth the investment for something so expertly made.
Hiccup and Toothless – 2014 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament
If you managed to snag this ornament from Hallmark back in 2014, you should be excited. Our favorite duo, Hiccup and Toothless, stand proud for How to Train Your Dragon 2. The ornament didn’t cost much when it came out, but if you missed its release, it’s going to cost you. The small figure now goes for about $100. If you’re a die-hard fan, it’s worth it, but there are cheaper ways to get your fix — including the 2010 ornament from the first How to Train Your Dragon. It will only cost you about $55. What a steal!
How to Train Your Dragon 2: Mega Toothless – Alpha Edition
This was just about the biggest toothless figure that came out for How to Train Your Dragon 2. The alpha mode toothless was a full 23” long and stood head and shoulders over the rest of the figures from the line. His impressive stature is now capped with an even more impressive price tag. While it was a remarkable collectible when it came out, its original price was affordable enough. You could once find this incredible figure for about $30, but he was scarce even at release with many collectors struggling to get their hands on one. Now, expect to pay about $200 to get one for your collection.
Sideshow Collectibles Toothless
This has to be the ultimate Toothless collectible and the ultimate How to Train Your Dragon collectible all rolled into one. If you don’t know about Sideshow Collectibles, they are a very high-end collectible company who specialize in statues and action figures. They make some of the most detailed reproductions in the industry, and their stuff is well worth the hefty price tags they come with. This Toothless statue was no exception. Every scale and detail was crafted to perfection, and with its limited edition release, it was tough to get your hands on one. When it was released, this impressive statue sold for an equally impressive $250, but now? Well, Sideshow sold out of our favorite dragon far too fast. Now it’s considered a rare find and can run you as much as $900 from aftermarket sites.
