HBO have announced a new toy line in partnership with McFarlane Toys, a series of “realistic construction sets” and character figurines based on the show.

The first set is themed around the Iron Throne, with Joffrey, Tyrion, Lannister soldiers and members of the Kingsguard up for grabs.  Future releases include a Mother of Dragons set, with Daenerys, Grey Worm and Rhaegal, and an Attack at the Wall set, featuring Jon Snow and Ghost.  Sets include key characters and accessories and will retail from $14.99 to $49.99, while additional individual figurines will cost $3.99 each. game-of-thrones-playset-02

McFarlane says:

[HBO is] a world-class network and Game of Thrones is one of the most visually compelling shows that I’ve ever seen.  We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to create high-quality collectible construction sets based on this fan-favorite property. Both collectors and fans of this epic series can build their favorite scenes with this new product line.

The toys will be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con next week and will be released to stores this Autumn.

    1. When it says “stores” I hope that means it will be easy to find. I’d like to see the stuff in person before purchase.

    2. With the number of beheadings on this show, I’m a little disappointed that no one’s taken up my suggestion of a line of Pez dispensers.

    3. Should be fun but think I would have preferred if Games Workshop had got hold of the rights. Be great fun recreating or making your own battles in the Got/ASoIAF world. Plus, they really did an excellent job with the Lord of the Rings IP until the hype surrounding the films died down so sales slowed. Still, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar just out for them so I guess they’ve got bigger fish to fry!

    4. You guys must have a lot of spare money if you can afford to blow it on this sort of self-indulgent garbage. Get your heads out of the sand. There are people out there dying and starving and you spend your money on glorified toys? That’s straight-up pathetic man, straight-up. (What’s the bet you’ll delete my comment for being too offensive… prefer to stay undisturbed in your little ivory tower?)

    5. Ronson,

      Didn´t know Mother Theresa was in the house.
      I myself hope HBO launches a set of waterlogged calendars.
      That would be heaven !

    6. At most $50 for an entire set or $4 per figure? I think the prices are awesome! The figures are likely tiny, but that means they’ll fit in my girls’ doll houses, right? My only wish, and it is a very strong one, is that they had a Westerosi girls set: Arya, Sansa, Brienne, Margaery, and even Cersei.

    7. Well, this is just terrible. The words “I probably don’t need any more Game of Thrones toys” actually came out of my mouth this weekend and now McFarlane has the license?!?!

      This will not end well for my wallet.

      Deal with it, troll.

      Sorry guys, I don’t agree with Ronson’s position either, but really, this post just doesn’t sit right with me. A quick reminder of what’s on top of this website: A Game of Thrones Community for Breaking News, Casting, and Commentary

      How in the heck does this fit in with that motto? It’s not “breaking news”, it’s not “casting” and it’s certainly not “commentary” either. This is, without much subtlety, an article pushing a product. It borders the stupidity-posts that made the previous site an eventual piece of crap. Don’t get me wrong, I love most of the stuff this site produces (especially when those fit the actual motto) and you two both have amazing insights and I check back quite often, but these kinds of posts are not what his site should be about. Might not be my place to say that, but at least you could appreciate a critical mind once in a while.

      It may sound rude, but it really made me beg the question if you guys are receiving a cut for promoting this toy-line and not telling, basically because how the article was worded even before the quote. It would be logical as well, as you guys do have a massive influence on the GoT-fandom, similarly to how YouTube-celebrities get cuts/products for promoting certain items, be it clothing, make-up or whatnot.

      Well, gee. Do tell us what do you do to fight the hunger and injustice around the world.

    11. Ser Oromis Locke,

      Jesus, really? This post is up there with the most stupid stuff I’ve read on the internet.
      Don’t promote GoT licensed products, ye guys. I know you run a site about Game of Thrones, but writing an article about the toys is going to be the beginning of the end for this site. And it’s all for money!

      RIP WOTW.

    12. Ronson,

      You wrote that over the internet, right? Probably with broadband, nice ping and everything? I’m just asking…
      – If you want to help people in need (as I’m sure many people here do on a regular bases) give some money to the many charities out there. You can even to it while you buy stuff you don’t really need, if you use something like Humble Bundle. So stop trolling and help people by buying “self-indulgent garbage”…

      Me likey. I’d buy the hell out of that.

      Ser Oromis Locke,

      To be fair, this staff has always kept us up on the toys, even hand a few out from time to time, but the wording gets a little clunky when you try to wedge in everything that gets covered. A little…Feast Dancy if you will.

    14. Ronson,

      Well, at least these are display worthy items, not stuff to hide in a garage or attic.
      Wonder if there will be a LF’s brothel set, hidden behind four walls and a roof, complete with peep holes to peep on the action. Then next year a Jaime/Ned confrontation expansion set.

      Oh wait – they’re for adults? For gosh sakes, folks; time to put the fancy Legos away.

    16. Ser Oromis Locke,

      Those kind of things have always been on the site. DVDs/Blu-Raies, sundtracks and yes, toys from and about the show get promoted in this community since day one. – I wouldn’t get to worked-up about the meaning of “breaking news”, but this post is that, since it’s nothing more then:

      newly received information about an event that is currently occurring or developing

    17. Ser Oromis Locke,

      Lean times, bro, but we’d probably post something like this mid-season. You may not like toys, but others do. A GoT product is GoT news.

      And Ronson was just trollin’. He deserved a quick dick-stomp.

    19. Oh, and we don’t make a dime off of GoT products. Not a thing.

      Hell, Oz barely scrapes a profit, running this place with minimum ad space, and most of THAT goes into updating the site.

      This is all for the love of it.

    20. I told Winterphil that he’d owe me a penny for my diligence and talent if WiC stayed up for ten years.

      It still might, damn, I guess we’ll see.

    21. Ser Oromis Locke,

      Dude, really?

      Axechucker already covered it pretty well.

      We’ve always covered new merch that interested us when we worked out of WiC, especially the nice official stuff.

      This just in: we’re allowed to show enthusiasm for stuff. Or the opposite. Clearly you haven’t seen my Twitter rants openly pointing out the flaws in official HBO Store merch.

    22. Cute! I should get back into D&D (AKA not David and Dan, the role-playing stuff) and write some GoT based stuff… buy those as props…

      Sue, I’m not saying you can’t show enthusiasm for stuff. If that’s what you took from my post, then I should’ve been clearer. First, these products may just not be for me, and I took it as being an article promoting a peripheral topic, which happened a lot at WiC (Cocktails, etc) during the end of that – which is what I was referencing. Secondly, I don’t mean to be demeaning as I enjoy most of the content the staff produces for us all and recognize the potential reach of this website. Basically, all I’m saying is that the tone of this article sounded a bit too much like a straight-up advertisement to me, instead of being a news article. It’s just about the tone I guess – and that can be subjective. And when I get those vibes it just makes me cringe and I really just want to ask how and what, and I can come across a bit harsh. I’m not excusing myself for being critical and inquisitive though.

      I don’t have a Twitter-account, so nope.

      Nothing!

      I wonder if there will ever be a GoT edition of the Legos video game, like the ones for Star Wars and Harry Potter. That would be fun to play. (Or GoT characters joining Disney’s Infinity video game universe.)

      Back on topic, those figurines are gorgeous. That detail is amazing.

    27. This is the best news I have seen on this website!!!! Thank you Geofry
      for covering this.

      As a collector, I have been praying to the heart tree that someone else would get a Thrones license. Someone that can do more than 12 figures in 5 years. At one point, I started a kickstarter campain to try to buy the license from funko to just give it to mattel. Granted that wouldn’t have worked but it did make my position clear on the matter. And it’s a position shared by a lot other people too. McFarlane Toys have been kicking arse since the 90s and this is awesome news. Yes, I said NEWS. Thank you WotW. This post made my day.

      I don’t think there’s quite the crossover in audience demographic that there is with those other examples! Although Lego heads are at least easily detachable

    32. Ser Oromis Locke: these products may just not be for me

      so you are aware of this fact about your own self, and yet you still feel compelled to write multi-paragraph rants about how posts covering new licensed products are destroying everything?

      where is the rage when WotW covers the videogame series? that is a licensed consumable, no different from these toys. or how about their “promotion” of comic-con, which is also not technically breaking GoT news? where do you draw the line and why? if the answer is “cuz i don’t like toys” then maybe just skip the article, no?

    33. Deesensfan,

      I didn’t say that personally i enjoyed this NEWS and also am jealous of those who can get their hands on it and about general complaining being too much you’re right some people really gave me a truly hard time in past weeks with their so called arguments

    35. Ser Oromis Locke,

      I , for the most part, don’t give two craps about interviews with the cast members or news about premieres, awards , etc. But they’re a facet of the GoT entity so it makes sense to report on them. If it’s not to your interest then just don’t read or respond to it! If the guys here weren’t reporting on stuff like this then you can be certain people would be calling them lazy and bitching about there not being enough new content on the site.

    36. If you guys can ever figure out the actual licensing deal that GRRM has, that would be an interesting article.

      Ever since Star Wars, most TV/Movie studios won’t accept anything less than complete merchandising rights, but this is obviously not the case with ASOIAF as there were a TON of licenses in place before the HBO show was a glint in D&D’s eyes.

      Clearly they are able to sell merch with the character’s likenesses from their show, while the actual intellectual property remains GRRMs. The details would be interesting to know, though. And for any aspiring writers, GRRM is a great example of why you don’t sell your intellectual property rights, ever. Of course he was lucky enough to be quite financially secure by the time the people came calling for those rights, it might have been more difficult to say no if you’re having a hard time paying the mortgage.

      And to that one troll, we all hate poor people. I’d rather burn money for heat than give it to them. 😀

    37. I like toys. I like action figures. It’s keep that spark of imagination from childhood burning and keeps our beloved (and not so beloved) characters near us during the long empty space between seasons.

      I also can’t wait for the next GoT beer!

      The same thing you do with a painting or any other kind of visual art: You put them in a nice place and look at them. – Or, you know, you could play with them, nothing wrong with that.
