  1. http://news.toyark.com/2017/07/20/sdcc-2017-gallery-dark-horse-game-thrones-crash-bandicoot-mass-effect-261605 Sorry, it was at last weekend's San Diego Comic Con, at the Dark Horse booth. Here's a link.
  2. As much as want to roll my eyes over the thought that more material is going to be released instead of TWOW, as a Targaryen fan I'd be lying through my teeth if I claimed I wasn't going to be buying this on October 10th. I get that "most" of this material was written years ago, and no whining I do is going to get me TWOW any sooner so I'll let it go (for now). How cool will it be to read a detailed description of the reign of Jaehaerys I? Or in book 2 when we finally learn about the events of the Tragedy at Summerhall? Aegon IV has also become one of my favorites. Everyone loves to hate the guy, but all I hear about him makes him more interesting to me. I want all the juicy details on that guy.
  3. #28 Dany 2.0 #29 Jon Snow 2.0 Battle of the Bastards #30 Tormund #31 Tyrion 2.0 Hand of the Queen? Not sure #32 Arya 2.0 (not shown at SDCC, but mentioned earlier) Also: Hodor Hold the Door (is actually a doorstop, but looks like he might be in scale with the figures. Wun Wun statue (can't tell if he is in scale with the figures from pics I a seeing)
  4. I had a blast playing that game. I will definitely play season 2 when it comes out.
  5. #27 Melisandre is now August 16th #28 Daenerys Targaryen Mother Of Dragons is also August 16th. Solicit says the redoes (Dany, Jon, Tyrion, Arya, etc) are replacing the older versions and those will be retired as the sell out. Also they are getting new packaging and these figures are aimed at new fans of the show: Game of Thrones: Daenerys Targaryen Mother of Dragons Figure Dark Horse is reinventing and relaunching its best-selling line of Game of Thrones figures. This all-new line will replace the previous versions, which will be retired as they sell out. An exciting new sculpture of Daenerys Targaryen launches the new series, which will also feature updated, distinctive new package designs. Slated for release at the conclusion of the eagerly anticipated new season of HBO’s television adaptation, Daenerys will be a jumping-on point for new fans. Publication Date: August 16, 2017 Format: Price: $29.99 UPC: 7 61568 00175 4
  6. I'd be on board with that. I actually have a scale custom Ghost with Jon and the others on my ASOIAF book case display. I found a really nice plastic wolf that was the perfect size, and had a friend of mine customize him for me. He looks perfect so I'm covered if they don't...but I'd buy an official Ghost if Dark Horse DOES.
  7. Six is about a year's worth of figures for Dark Horse. I doubt we'll hear of anything new until maybe the end of the year. Those three redos are really going to be irritating as far as hogging up three spots that undone characters could have had.
  8. It occurred to me tonight that as of this May, this will officially be the longest wait between ASOIAF books. With 5 years and 10 months in May, Winds will beat Dance's infamous record of 5 years and 9 months (from the original UK release in Oct 2005 of Feast to Dance in July 2011).
  9. For the new versions, the only one I can see getting might be Jon. He's my favorite ASOIAF character so I may be swayed to buy him again. Especially if the sculpt is for him in Stark gear like he's now wearing in the show. Or if the sculpt if of him in the NW, but better than the first one which could have been better. I'm very happy with the Dany, Tyrion and Arya figurines I have now. They are all great sculpts and in costumes that make sense.
  10. http://news.toyark.com/2017/02/18/toy-fair-2017-dark-horse-legend-zelda-breath-wild-statue-241583 That's the link to Toyark's website with pics from Dark Horse's booth at Toy Fair this past weekend. Like Jons_Ghost said above, new sculpts of Jon, Arya, and Tyrion will come later. Of the 3 figures shown and 6 promised, only ONE of them was new. If they are just going to redo the big names, that means they are close to done. I'm not buying the same characters over and over, especially if they aren't in a different look. There are too any important characters not done to be pulling this. I have no Theon, Robert Baratheon, Catelyn, Ramsey, Davos or Samwell.
  11. I only see three from Toy Fair this weekend, the Melisandre that we already knew about, a second Dany, and the only new one was Tormund.
  12. So Stannis DID see the light of day! My local comic store didn't get it, though they ordered it for me way back when it was solicited in Previews from Diamond Dist. I thought it was running late, but now I'll make sure to go back. Thanks for posting the pics and updating the thread Lannister Guard 1055!
  13. I am guessing (at the moment anyway, my mood could change) that in the books Jon's real name is Aemon, but in the show they will name him Aegon. Ameon ties into Jon's relationship with his maester, and his childhood hero the Dragon knight. While the show will simply go for the cooler sounding name and it is the most famous name.
  14. Winds is already in the #2 spot for the longest wait. Like Sifth said, July is the next milestone. It will be the longest wait of all the ASOIAF books from then on.
  15. New dates for the current 3 figurines we are waiting on. From Dark Horse's website: #25 Son of the Harpy, on December 7th #26 Stannis Baratheon, on January 25th #27 Melisandre is still TBA.
