NEW GAME OF THRONES® FIGURES ARE COMING FROM DARK HORSE
February 21, 2017

Dark Horse and HBO® to Introduce New Looks for Favorite Characters in 2017

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (Feb. 18, 2017)—Dark Horse and HBO Global Licensing are introducing new looks for some familiar characters in their bestselling line of Game of Thrones figures. The new figures will be released in June 2017, coinciding with the Season 7 premiere of the award-winning show this summer. To date, Dark Horse and HBO have released twenty-seven Game of Thrones figures.

The new Game of Thrones figures feature fan-favorite characters in detailed interpretations with new sculpts and updated deluxe packaging. Dark Horse revealed the opening figures, Daenerys Targaryen and Melisandre, at the American International Toy Fair earlier today. A previous Daenerys figure, featuring “The Mother of Dragons” alongside her soon-to-be-hatched dragon eggs, was among the first figures released in Dark Horse’s line of Game of Thrones figures. Dark Horse will also reveal fresh sculpts of previously released character figures for Tyrion Lannister, Jon Snow, and Arya Stark at a later date.

In Game of Thrones, Daenerys Targaryen is on a quest to take back the Iron Throne her family once occupied. She is a formidable foe, merciless in her vengeance and accompanied by her beloved dragons. The new figure exemplifies her fierce spirit and portrays her in her warrior costume with her striking platinum hair.

Melisandre, the Red Priestess of Asshai, uses her arcane powers to influence events throughout the Game of Thrones story. Dark Horse captures her ageless beauty and fiery personality in her hallmark red attire.

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.

    I dearly hope we get a fierce Dark Queen Cersei Lannister figure in all her black leather, silver armor coronation finery and crown in this wave!

    Are dark horse going to make any more Kal Drogo and Ned Stark figures because we are the two short of the set .

  • John Warby says:

    I think a Robert Baratheon figure would be a good new release. Very important character in the GOT story.
