- This is the official name that
appears on the piece; other variants do appear (e.g.
"Sir Nigel" short for his true name).
- If I have an image, it appears here as a thumbnail. If I have
a larger image, you can click on the thumbnail to see it.
- A new concept, this piece is limited by the time of its
availability. It will be available for just one year, and
therefore its numbers will be limited by how many are
ordered by retailers during that time. This should
increase this sort of figurine's collectibility.
- Christmas Edition
- These are generally available for a little more than a
year, from Christmas of the year of issue through the end
of the next year. Because they have a short manufacturing
life, they are limited in quantity so are more
collectible than the Regular Editions but, on the other
hand, they are available to the general public so they
may be a little less "limited" than Collector's
Club, Members Only and especially the Event Pieces. Not
all Christmas-themed pieces are Christmas Editions; some
(like Candy Cane) are available for several years.
- Collectors Club
- This is the piece you get "free" when you join
the club. It usually comes with other goodies like a pin,
maybe a tin, and several enclosures.
- Limited Edition
- A set number of these are produced, the number is
generally only "firm" once the limited edition
certificates have been printed up. So far the range on
these has been a low of 2500 (The Volunteer and Under The
Bed), and a high of 4000 (Computer Wizard). Generally the
run is split so that the U.S. gets half and the U.K. gets
half, though that may be changing. These are higher
dollar pieces but since they are limited edition they can
often escalate quickly in value.
- Members Only
- Available as an extra purchase to members of the
Collector's Club during the year they bought the
membership. Generally membership runs from June to May,
however, if you sign up any time during the year your
membership still expires in May, and if you want the
special Members Only piece you must send in the
certificate that you were sent when you got your club
materials. Since they are produced for only one year and
are available only to club members, there are not very
many of these made, which will increase their collectibility.
- Pocket Dragon Of The Day
- A new concept in collecting was added in 2000 with a very limited
availability piece called, "The Pocket Dragon Of The Day." The
first one, "Your Prince Is Here" has an issue date of July 29,
- Regular Edition
- These figurines are generally available to the public for
more than a year.
- Special Event
- Sometimes called the "Tour" or "Appearance
Piece" because in the past they have been most often
found when Real Musgrave comes to do a signing in a
store, now that the artist is reducing the number of his
appearances, you will more often find them at simple
"Pocket Dragon Events" which are basically days
in which retailers celebrate the fun of this line of
figurines with food and festivities in their stores. The
Special Event piece appears and retires along with the
annual club pieces, but is not available from a retailer
prior to their Event, so the limited time and limited
availability should make these
pieces quite collectible.
- Issue Price
- This is the price (if known) in U.S.
Dollars. Some pieces had no official price (e.g.
Collectors Club joining pieces) and some were combined
("Won't You Join Us" and "A Spot of
Tea" were sold together), yet others were free ("Friendship
Pin" given when you signed
up a friend to the Collectors Club). Those with two
prices listed (for example $35.00/39.00 on "Sees
All...Knows All...") are those that are known to
have had a price change over the time of their issuance, with the
earlier price listed first.
- Issue Year
- Year of U.S. issue.
- Year of U.S. retirement. The word
"no" appears here if it is not yet retired, or
other explanation (e.g. if we know when it is due to
All Pocket Dragons
