(Almost) Full view of the Toothless puppet- animatronics.
Interestingly, the rig that makes it move is put behind it, to allow for Toothless to crouch low to the ground. A different set up from Gronckles, Nadders and Nightmares, who have their rigs underneath their bellies.
(look at those padded feet, ha ha!)
