The Golden Dragon was originally created in China hundreds of years ago. In the 1500's, Marco Polo, as he was ready to leave the court of Kublai Khan, was gifted this statue for his contributions to the Khan's empire. However, the Golden Dragon was too big to take to Italy, so it was instead stored away inside of a chamber inside of the Dragon Fortress.
In 2008, Johnny Thunder and the Adventurers raced against Lord Sam Sinister and his henchmen to acquire the statue. After a two-month hunt for the treasures needed to find the Golden Dragon, the Adventurers succeed in finding the Golden Dragon. The dragon was first displayed at the LEGO City Natural History Museum for a year before being put on permanent display in China.
The Golden Dragon has no functions, as it is meant for pure aesthetic appeal.
Before Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Edit
The Golden Dragon was originally created as the final treasure for LEGO's Orient Expedition product line. It serves the same functions in the theme's story as it does in Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo and was only included in one set: 7419 Dragon Fortress.
- According to the official canon, the Golden Dragon is not completely made of gold. The wings and eyes are made from rubies and the body is created with obsidian with gold veins inlaid. Only the head is essentially all gold, minus the eyes.
