With the season 3 premiere coming on March 31, and our Dark Horse shipment arriving today, it seemed like a good time to spotlight some of the great Game of Thrones products that are hitting shelves. One of my favorite items from Toy Fair is the Jon Snow and Ghost statue by Dark Horse. (You can see a bigger picture on our Facebook page.) The stock image is OK, but the statue in a lighted display case was pretty impressive! Unfortunately, this statue won’t arrive until approximately July. There are several other statues, and Funko has the POP series 1 already out with Series 2 coming soon.
There is a lot more to Game of Thrones collectibles, though, than just statues and figures. There are many different items for each noble house, such as mugs, pins, steins, plush pillows, and more. Of course, there is the iconic throne replica, which originally was made as a limited edition 14″ replica. It now comes in a 7″ version as well. Which collectibles do you like the most, and what are you looking forward to about the upcoming season?
We got great news that new POP figures will be coming out for the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones! The announced figures for The Walking Dead POP figures are Michonne and her Pet Zombie #1 and #2, Glenn, and Tank Zombie. Judging by the pictures that I’ve seen, I think the Tank Zombie looks pretty neat, and Glenn is a cool character, so those are the two that I’m most excited about. I like the Michonne figure, but I think I prefer the Wacky Wobbler version myself.
The second wave of Game of Thrones Pop figures will include: Renly Baratheon, Cersei Lannister, Robb Stark, Arya Stark, Jon Snow, and Jaime Lannister. I think this is my favorite overall series of POP figures, as each character is so unique. I’m looking forward to adding each of these to the first series and making a cool display. I still haven’t decided how to display them exactly, but I guess I have some time since they won’t arrive until around June.
Check out these figures and let us know what you think! Which are your favorites? Are there characters that you wish they would have included in this series? We’d also love to see any cool displays that you have of the first series of POPs.
