Demon (1984)

Demon is awesome. You can do no wrong with the a black and red color scheme. The big black wings (attached by a peg in the back that is likely very prone to breakage) are dramatic. I love the big bat-style ears and his round, tooth-filled mouth. It reminds me of some of Mike Mignola’s skeletons, in a way.

The original Dragonriders of the Styx line featured little demons and balrogs cast in either black or red plastic. This guy is a clear inheritor of that DNA and to great effect. Best of the whole line.
