“When the snows fall and the white wind blows, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.” – Sansa Stark (George R.R. Martin’s “Game of Thrones”)
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.

If you’re riding high on your dose of the new season of “Game of Thrones” you can quench between episode joneses pondering this amazing likeness of Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen. The unburnt “Mother of Dragons” is fittingly replete with baby perched on her shoulder, just like the final scene of season one. A color variant, representing the hues of Viserion, will be exclusive to Entertainment Earth. The included base is entwined with relief work depicting the iconography of the show’s opening titles, featuring dragons and stags and wolves.
Not much is left to say when the picture above speaks volumes, but having personally perused this piece from Dark Horse Deluxe and HBO licensing I must note it is simply stunning. Expect this limited edition to be available in late June. The Gentle Giant Studios sculpt is approximately 7 inches tall and 8 inches wide.
