Winter is coming! Yes, yes, we’ve heard it a million times, but this winter will bring more than just freezing temperatures and undead armies – it’ll bring a brand-new line of collectibles based on the hit TV series Game of Thrones!
Diamond Select Toys has secured the license for Game of Thrones and will launch a line of Gallery Dioramas at the end of 2023. Starting with Jon Snow, the line will cover the main characters of the series, each captured at approximately 1/8 scale in high-quality PVC.
“Game of Thrones is a universally known, universally loved series,” said Diamond Select Toys president Chuck Terceira, “and we are extremely excited to be working on such a revered property. Our artists are working at the top of their game and we think fan response will be tremendous. We also have some ideas to expand our offerings, so stay tuned for more details.”
In the inaugural sculpture, Jon Snow crouches, sword at the ready, as his injured direwolf Ghost looks on. Both are in their Season 8 appearances, and this piece measures 10 inches to the tip of Jon’s sword. It comes packaged in a full-color window box, and was designed by Nelson X. Asencio and sculpted by Ed Trujillo.
