Dark Horse continues their roll out of exceptional Game of Thrones collectibles and in honor of the 5th season premiere of that mega-popular HBO epic, it seems appropriate to post a gallery of some of the series related items currently available and those just on the horizon.
I thought Dark Horse’s original Daenerys bust (with baby dragon perched on her shoulder) was un-toppable but this new limited edition takes things to a whole new level. In the midst of so many amazing things displayed at New York Toy Fair 2015, the prototype of Dark Horse’s Deanerys and Drogon statue was a stop-you-in-your-tracks attention getter. Evoking a calm before the storm moment – just a girl and her pet hanging out – the massive 18” long x 14” wide showpiece comes prepainted and will be available in July 2015. Pre-orders are probably a smart move as previous Deluxe editions, like Jon Snow and Ghost, have quickly sold out.
If July is too far away, fans of Brienne of Tarth can get her visage in statue form starting this Wednesday, April 15. The 13″ tall statue is a finely detailed Gentle Giant Studios sculpt that portrays the warrior in fierce fighting pose wielding Oathkeeper her spell-forged sword of Valyrian steel. Brienne is limited to a casting of 950.
In addition to these high end deluxe offerings Dark Horse has Game of Thrones collectibles in every price range, including crests, coffee cups, and moderately priced production figures.
This weekend heralds the launch of season three of HBO’s Game of Thrones and I’m pleased to share Dark Horse Comics’ additions to their series related collection.
Last year we had an advance peek at the beautiful Deanerys Targaryen bust. This July Dark Horse will add an awesome Jon Snow (Kit Harington) sculpt with fierce companion Ghost, the direwolf. The Gentle Giant Studios produced statue will be limited to 695 numbered pieces worldwide.
Already available from your collectibles distributors are Golden Globe Award winner Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister weilding his battle axe, Direwolf bookends to keep your ice and fire tomes between, and a 7” Iron Throne all your own.
