Funko, a well-known maker of pop culture toys such as bobbleheads and vinyl figures, has just sent out a press release revealing that they’ve licensed rights to produce a series of vinyl figures based on HBO’s Game of Thrones.
They are, to say the least, amazing (and amazingly cute). These are going to make amazing stocking stuffers come the holidays, I expect.
Looking around on-line, these vinyl figures are also likely to be very affordably priced, which is all the better. The only question is, why not make bobbleheads? Though I suppose a Ned Stark bobblehead would tend to have its head fall off…
To see the rest of the figures joining the Imp— Eddard Stark, Daenerys Targaryen (with dragon!), Khal Drogo, Sandor Clegane, and a White Walker (an interesting choice, that one)—just visit the gallery. And hopefully these will do well enough to merit more in the series! What characters would you like to see added to the collection, if a second series is released? Arya, surely. Jon seems pretty likely. Jaime, of course. I’d like to see Varys and Littlefinger, myself.
