New Figurines from Dark Horse

The New York Comic Con has opened, and with it Dark Horse has revealed a brand new series of Game of Thrones figurines that will soon be on sale. The three new figures will be joining the Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen figures that Dark Horse announced back in July. And who are these three figures? None other than Tyrion Lannister, Ned Stark, and Khal Drogo.

The full press release, and additional images from Dark Horse, can be found below the cut.

DARK HORSE ANNOUNCES UPCOMING GAME OF THRONES® FIGURES!

NEW YORK, NY, OCTOBER 10—The epic HBO® series Game of Thrones has won a legion of fans, and Dark Horse has been working with HBO Global Licensing to provide this hungry audience with an entire line of collectibles from the hit series. Building on a collection of highly anticipated figures, three new Game of Thrones characters are making their worldwide debut this week: Tyrion Lannister, Ned Stark, and Khal Drogo.

After public display at New York Comic Con, all three will appear in Diamond’s Previews catalog later this month for retailer and collector advance orders. They join the already-solicited figures of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, unveiled this summer at San Diego Comic-Con, in Dark Horse’s growing Game of Thrones figure line.

“We are excited to reveal the next phase of our continuing figure program and have additional characters in the works for summer release,” said Dark Horse VP of Product Development David Scroggy. “We hope collectors enjoy owning them as much as we are enjoying creating them.”

The nonarticulated figures measure from 6.25 to 8.75 inches in height and are based on the likenesses of the respective actors, all of whom have approved the sculptures. The paint application is of the highest standard, reproducing the nuances of each character’s overall appearance. They will be presented in deluxe window-box packaging, further underscoring the aesthetic of the HBO series with their graphic design. These figures arrive on shelves in April and carry a suggested retail price of $24.99, like the previously released Jon Snow and Daenerys figures.
