Vintage Toy Restoration – Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Fortress of Fangs

I’ve been a fan of the LJN Advanced Dungeons and Dragons toy line since I was a child and have been lucky to have the Fortress of Fangs in my collection for many years. But it’s never been complete and finding the missing parts for it is a thankless and often expensive task. So today I thought I would just get on and make some of the missing pieces I needed to complete the playset and getting looking nice for display.

Dave is the mastermind behind Toy Polloi, a YouTube channel established in 2014 to offer repair tutorials and restoration tips for vintage toy lines such as Star Wars, Transformers, Mego, Masters of the Universe, Micronauts, Six Million Dollar Man, Action Man, G.I. Joe, and more. Visit the Toy Polloi YouTube channel to discover the full library of tutorials for vintage toy collectors and toy enthusiasts.

Dave’s work appears on Toy Tales as part of our Friends of Toy Tales initiative to share content we enjoy from a host of creators with a similar fondness for vintage toys, classic games, and collectibles. His tutorials showcase how to repair and restore the vintage toys we treasure most.
