“You know NOTHING Jon Snow!” – Everyone on Game of Thrones

Today we continue to take a look at the first wave of Dark Horse Comics 7″ Game of Thrones figures based on the characters in the HBO series.    Yesterday we looked at Daeneryes Targereyn, and today we look at the bastard son of Ned Stark, one of the Night’s Watch – Jon Snow.

A core item in the Dark Horse Game of Thrones program is an ongoing series of high-quality, affordable, molded plastic figures of the most-asked-for characters.

Jon Snow, a warrior leader of the Night’s Watch, faces the dangers from beyond The Wall.

The figures are 7.5 “ tall and are non-articulated plastic statues.    They look like they might have some articulation in the package, but they do not.   Jon Snow is attached to his base, and his sword blade is packed separately in the box.   These figures are packaged in a full-color window box.

If you are looking for an articulated action figure then Funko’s Legacy GOT figures will be more your speed.  But if you are looking for a nice line of reasonably priced 7-8″ figures in iconic scenes and poses from the series then this is the line for you.

Jon Snow is another great sculpt with a lot of detail in both the figure and the paint.   It’s difficult to make a figure wearing mostly black that interesting, but they brought out the subtle color differences and made nice use of all the all the textures on the costume as well as some great weathering from being in the snow.   Winter is coming after all.

Jon Snow is available now at: BigBadToyStore.com, EntertainmentEarth.com and on the Dark Horse website.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
