Many LJN Advanced Dungeons & Dragons action figures featured a three and three-quarter-inch format similar to other competitors’ popular toy lines of the 80s. However, a small number of produced action figures in this toyline were disproportionate in standard consistent action figure size to represent the accuracy of the DND roleplaying game. The LJN Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Zarak action figure offered 5 points of articulation with the hips, shoulders, and neck. The Zarak action figure featured a three and three-quarter-inch size format. However, it was slightly smaller due to the Half-Orc nature of his character.
