Fans of HBO’s Games Of Thrones may be chomping at the bit for Season 3 not scheduled to air for another 6 months (March 31st on HBO). In the meantime, Dark Horse has been behind the scenes creating collectible statues for uber fans of the series. The second one, a depiction of the notorious Tyrion Lannister is set to hit shelves in late February.
To create the piece, Dark Horse turned to the writer/producers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss for the most â€œstatueworthyâ€ moment in the then-unaired second season. The two chose Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage, and arguably the most morally challenged character on the hit show. The statuette portrays Tyrion as he charges into battle in defense of King’s Landing at the Battle of Blackwater.
The Tyrion statue will be issued in a limited run, with the final edition size undetermined at press time. This detailed figure measures approximately 10 inches in height and 9.5 inches across its base, which features Tyrion’s cast-aside helmet and other painstakingly re-created details.
Hand painted and numbered, the Game of Thrones Tyrion statue will come packaged in a deluxe full-color box.
Fans of the series can view a â€œMaking of the Tyrion Lannister statueâ€ video on the Dark Horse Blog.
Look for these statues to arrive in stores on February 20, 2013, with a suggested retail price of $199.99.
