DARK HORSE UNLEASHES “GAME OF THRONES”® NIGHT’S KING LIMITED EDITION BUST
December 3, 2015

MILWAUKIE, OR—Dark Horse is heading into the holidays with the reveal of the latest release in its growing line of figures and collectibles based on characters from the smash-hit HBO® series Game of Thrones®. Modeled after the leader of the White Walkers who raised the fallen wildlings in the aftermath of the massacre at Hardhome in one of Season 5’s most shocking moments, the Night’s King bust will be available in spring 2016.

Drawing on the skills of sculptor Dave Cortes, Dark Horse has captured the Night’s King in full detail. The bust measures 8 3/4 inches tall. His 12-inch arms are raised as if he is a conductor orchestrating a crescendo, while his otherworldly blue eyes challenge Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch army as they retreat.

“Demand for our previous large-scale Game of Thrones statues and busts has been tremendous,” said Dark Horse Product Development head David Scroggy. “Items like our 14-inch Iron Throne replica, the Jon Snow and Ghost statue, and the Daenerys and Drogon bust have sold through quickly. We expect the Night’s King bust to be just as popular!”

This limited edition bust is sure to be the centerpiece of any Game of Thrones collection.

The Night’s King bust will be packaged in a full-color, oversize collector box. The release date is set for April 2016. Suggested retail price is $129.99.

Daniel Pickett
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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.

    Nice sculpting, but Darth Maul looks pi$$ed ! He should have never started smoking.

    Hi there,

    for a client of ours we urgently need to find a company in Europe (Germany) that is able to produce an oversized gaming statue. They require it for the Gamescom in Cologne, which you may have heard of. I´d be very grateful for any help.

    Kindest regards, Friedo
