In 2005 the Testors Corporation, one of the largest producers of models and modelling supplies in the U.S., acquired the license to produce A Song of Ice and Fire-related products. Testors unveiled an ambitious plan to produce three separate and distinct lines of products: limited edition 54mm toy soldiers (like George collects), 1/18th scale collectible resin statues, and a tabletop skirmishing wargame with associated miniatures. On April 17, 2007 it was announced that the licensing agreement had expired and would not be renewed.
In late 2006, GRRM announced that a new company by the name of Haute Productions founded by sculptor Justice Joseph and production manager Jed Haigh had acquired the license to produce miniature busts of characters from the series, with the further possibility of resin statues and even a chess set promised down the road.
