Two words: PLUSH DIREWOLVES.
Seeking to top their already-formidable announcement about Archer toys, Factory Entertainment has announced they’ve gotten the license to the Emmy-winning HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones. Get your ravens ready, because you’re going to want to tell all your friends about this one.
The planned merchandise, which will debut at this year's Toy Fair, includes:
- Collector Plush –Direwolves, Dragons, Dragon Eggs and other creatures and characters in detailed collector plush form.
- Throw Pillows – High quality decorative pillows bearing the sigils and mottos of the Great Houses of Westeros.
- Prop Replicas – Iconic objects and costume elements replicated in exacting detail as quality limited editions.
- Sculptural Miniatures – Scaled polystone sculptures of key castles, buildings and environments featured in the series.
If the plushes also include “Slappable Joffrey with Real Whimpering Sound,” then PERFECTION WILL BE ACHIVED.
We’ll see the merchandise prototypes at the Factory Entertainment Booth (#4979) at New York Toy Fair this weekend, and the merchandise itself is due to come out this summer.
Are you excited about this announcement – and what Game of Thrones merchandise would you like to see? For that matter – how psyched are you to see the third season premiere this March? Let us know!
