There are great Game of Thrones merch reveals every year for New York Comic Con, and this fall, we’re getting a sneak peek of a host of amazing new Funko products coming soon. Funko unveiled their latest batch of GoT Pop! figures on their blog today, along with a few more goodies. The other new toys include Pop! keychains featuring Jon’s faithful direwolf Ghost, Tyrion Lannister and the Night King, and a pair of Rock Candy sisters.

The new additions “coming soon” to the mega popular Pop! toy line include (in addition to the oh-my-god-gotta-have-it Beric Dondarrion figure above):

Iain Glen drops a possible Season 8 spoiler and Emilia Clarke has new dragon ink!

CAption

Iain Glen as Jorah Mormont.

We’re in a lull, people — filming news on Season 8 has slowed to a crawl as post-production is underway (although we’ve gotten some intriguing tidbits about the prequels), and we’re no closer to a release date than we were months ago. And aside from the Emmys on Monday night that resulted in some fun sound bites, cast and crew have been tight-lipped in interviews, lest they give away anything crucial about the final season. But was a recent interview with Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) different?

The latest and the greatest Game of Thrones merch in the HBOShop!

I’ve been on a Game of Thrones merch spree of late, and just received a sweet piece I pre-ordered some time ago, so now seems like the perfect time for another post full of GoT goodies! Just after Back to School madness and in advance of the scarily earlier-every-year holiday shopping, here’s a list of my favorite things.

Pre-ordered back in May, this week I finally received the Weirwood Tree Goblet (shown above left), actually ahead of the announced October shipping date. Vivid and beautifully detailed, it’s worth every penny. I can’t wait to drink buckets of wine out of this thing while making stupid Jojen-paste jokes for the next fifty years. ($44.95)

The annual Emmy Awards, honoring the best in television, have come and gone and left Game of Thrones with even more gold hardware to add to its display case — nine awards in all, including Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Peter Dinklage and the coveted Outstanding Drama Series prize (the fact that I can’t add Lena Heady to this list fills me with low-grade rage, but that’s just me). As with any awards show, a bevy of interviews took place before, during and after, and we’ve rounded up some of the best and most intriguing for your reading pleasure.

#HairWatch2 is underway, and Kit Harington says the ending of ‘Thrones’ won’t make everyone happy

Caption

Hard to imagine Kit Harington (Jon Snow) without his signature locks and beard.

Remember the frenzy that was #HairWatch, when we were all scouring the internet daily to see if Kit Harington had cut his hair after Season 5 because it would have meant Jon Snow was no more? Well, welcome to #HairWatch2, because although a haircut wouldn’t mean anything this time around, Harington still hasn’t lost his signature look — and Season 8 filming wrapped two months ago. So what gives?

Ramin Djawadi talks composing ‘big new themes’ for Season 7

The Dany and Jon ship sets sail in Season 7.

Season 7 of Game of Thrones didn’t lack for moments of shock and drama (as the penultimate season of the world’s most popular TV series, it would have been a letdown if it had) but the genius behind the show’s musical score, recent Emmy winner Ramin Djawadi, once again took those moments to new heights with his compositions.

Game of Thrones Prequel Casting May Begin Soon: “Confidential HBO Project” Casting Call Looking for Diverse Talent Pool

Children of the Forest Night King

With the final season of Game of Thrones approaching (rather slowly) you would be forgiven for forgetting there’s a related project on its infancy just as the original reaches its end: Jane Goldman‘s spin-off, reportedly set during the legendary Long Night. When we learned that the prequel would see its greenlit pilot shot on February 2019, we predicted “we should have casting and production news soon enough.” That may be coming true after all, though nothing is certain, given HBO’s characteristic secrecy…

Game of Thrones wins 7 Creative Arts Emmys for season 7!

Wall - Beyond Frozen Lake 7x06 Dragons Drogon Viserion Rhaegal Wights

With 22 Emmy nominations this year, we all had high hopes this would be a good night for Game of Thrones and spoiler alert: it was. The 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards were partially presented this evening at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and Game of Thrones took home some well-earned prizes! That’s right, not all of the categories were presented, because it’s a two-day affair for the techies, with awards being presented on two consecutive nights, tonight and tomorrow night. Tonight was focused on comedy and drama programming, while tomorrow’s celebrations will focus on reality, game show and variety programs.

The main Emmy Awards event, with the biggest awards including Outstanding Drama Series and major acting prizes, will be awarded live on Monday, September 17, on NBC. Be sure to tune in then to root for your faves!

Where did Game of Thrones score this evening? Season 7 picked up wins for:
