New 6"articulated Game of Throne figures by Funko.

Post by Shadowless on Tue Feb 11, 2014 2:25 am



I’ll be getting these for sure. Likeness wise, these aren’t great, but I like them more than those Dark Horse 7”statues that are out at the moment. As for the scale of these Funko figures, early reports say that the Hound figure is close to 8” tall.

VERY impressive first showing from Funko in the 6", highly articulated action figure category.

But, I really wish companies would prioritise double elbows above double knees. I'm much more inclined to pose the "arms" of a figure moreso than the "legs" since the legs generally need to be pretty vanilla for stability/standing.

I haven’t really been excited about a set of figures like I am with these for a very long time. Neca is great for articulated figures, but I really miss the middle-years of Mcfarlane’s Spawn line and Toy Biz’s Lord of the Rings.
These new articulated figures will be a very welcome addiction to fans of the book and show as well as those who just collect cool toys.

I think once these action figures are officially released, that rival 7” statue line will wither and die.

You can just see The Hound's helmet in this pic.

Sweet! I was hoping someone would pick up the license for this series. I was disappointed with the Dark Horse statues they were trying to pass off as figures, their likeness was horrible!
Hopefully Funko will release an entire line

Well, it’s hard to say if Funko have the rights to the actor’s likeness. I don’t think the likeness is all that better than the Dark Horse figures, but like these more. I’ll buy as many as they put out. Word is, the retail price for these will be around $20 US, so by the time they are available here, it could end up an expensive set. Mind you, all figures in Australia look as though their price is on the rise. Sad

Matt K had pics up on Fwoosh which look pretty good. I like the Jon Snow especially.

If you still have a Danaerys around when the Feb MOTUC stuff comes in, I wouldn't mind seeing it in person.

Don't forget that the same company will be making Firefly figures at some stage.

Update - ordered a Daenerys (excuse the spelling in earlier post) - $19.95 + $15.98 International Priority shipping. Not too shabby.
Have added other 5 figures to my wish list on the site.

Now to write up a 'who I want them to make' list - Drogo would have to be first, followed by the Kingslayer with 'root your sister' action haha.

Yeah did the same thing this afternoon. Ticked me off. I wouldn't worry though. Don't pay the sickening prices already on ebay. I’m sure these will end up here sooner or later.

P.S. I'm pretty sure popcultcha.com.au had these listed quite a few months ago, which may be a sign that they will stock them.

Saw the first wave of these at Gametraders at Morayfield - they had all but Jon Snow (whether sold out or not received I don't know).

$34.95 each - I got 4 of my six from the Barnes and Noble website, worked out $27 each or so. The others I got from ebay for a touch more.

These are pretty cool. Funko do a good job with their toys. The Pop! Vinyl's are by far their most popular line.
