Dragontooth Giant's Club - 1981


One of my favorite of the old school companies is 'Tom Loback General Artwork' or 'Dragontooth' Miniatures. Wonderful selection of craziness that embedded itself in Tom's work and that of the sculptors he had working with him. In 1981 he did a marketing ploy of a monthly special offer....buy 3 Giant Sets and get a discount.......




The later (1982) catalogue shows colour pictures of which I do have a postcard original somewhere...I just can't find it! The eBay picture is below instead.....




'Marvellous Beasties' MB10 Winged Cat. I believe (although could be proved wrong as I've only ever seen this picture which I suspect is the one.......). If you have a copy and don't think you love it any more I will help give it a new home......


and the man himself at the 152 W. 26th address. Tom's earliest New York address was E. 99th St. 150 which was his 1st loft 1800 sq ft & casting was done by a white-metal caster on 23rd St.; later he was at 152 W. 26th before moving on to W. 39th St.


I do run a quiet Yahoo Group; Collecting Dragontooth Miniatures. Most of the ranges are also pictured on the Lost Minis WIKI here.

Lol Steve. Between Alexander the Great and lost lead I would be stuck for the first trip!

Tommy was my Mother's Cousin and really was larger than life when i was a kid. Such an amazing tribute to his work to see Y'All across the Pond hold Dragontooth in such high esteem. It tickled him to know his art made such an impression on the World.

Thanks Sean. I do hope everything went well with the funeral and the wake. A lot of my friends have been discussing him and how sad they are at his passing. Please pass our condolences to the family.
