- It took Pogo six months to get the bootleg Smaug right. No small feat for a small workshop in Zhejiang. Pogo had to create new molds for Smaug, and some of which may not be reused in future release. The red colour of Pogo Smaug is lighter compared to Lego one. The golden scales aren’t as shiny as the genuine. The wings are rubbery, just like Lego and could be folded. You could find excess on the molding lines, the the “breathing fire” piece is easily drop from the mouth. The transaction on bricklink showed the dragon fetch over USD100 while you could get Smaug for under USD20 on Aliexpress.
