The filming of Game of Thrones is winding down, and with the delay of the season 7 premiere, it’s unclear when we can expect a teaser or trailer this year. We may be entering a strange low off-period of doldrums, so what better time for a giveaway? And this month, we have a toy that fans have been waiting for, for quite a while now!

The newest figure from Dark Horse Comics‘ line of official Game of Thrones collectibles, released just a couple weeks ago, is Stannis Baratheon. Sculpted in the likeness of actor Stephen Dillane, who brought the character to life on the HBO show, the figure stands eight inches tall.

The figure retails for $27.99, and is available in stores everywhere, but one lucky WotW reader will win this figure!
