That is the surprise statement from Todd McFarlane himself just moments ago on his social media pages. Todd McFarlane comic book artist, toy company mogul and overall cool dude is on a hot streak lately and he just got even more medieval on your ass! As the toy company owned by Todd McFarlane is announced as the official toy license for the HBO fan favorite show Game of Thrones.
TMP Toys is already known as a top contender in the collectibles toy market. Having an already historic name in business with the introduction on his 90’s comic book cult classic creation Spawn, TMP Toys has gone on to produce some of the most incredibly realistic action figures from all corners of the pop culture world. TMP has touched everything in entertainment from Aliens, Terminator, Robocop, Predator, Movie Maniacs, Rock Band, MLB – NFL – NBA – NHL Sports figures to even Halo. TMP Toys has been dominating the recent zombie market by making the official figures for Skybound and fellow Image-mate Robert Kirkman. The newest of the zombie toy hits being the mini building sets involving miniature set pieces and figures based on the smash hit zombie survival drama.
Game of Thrones is already known around the world as the premier drama of cable TV shows. On its current five-year run on HBO, Game of Thrones has been killing and shocking its way though the hearts of its novel fans and non-reading fans alike. The fantasy tale set in a make believe land involving highly detailed costumes to go along with its deadly interwoven tales is a perfect fit for TMP toys. Not to say that just because TMP toys has made an entire line of Dragons and Game of Thrones also has dragons it would makes the combo a no-brainer. I am very certain Todd McFarlane has some grand scale epic ideas on the way with this newest venture. I for one cannot wait to see what is in store to put up on my toy shelves! More news will be given here at PopcultHQ once available from SDCC and TMP Toys.
Intricately designed Game of Thrones figures for making the most realistic “construction sets” and character figurines based on the hit series.
The first release is the Iron Throne Room (shown above), which is shown with characters for King Joffrey, Tyrion Lannister, members of the Kingsguard and Lannister guards. Future playsets will include a Mother of Dragons set and an Attack on The Wall set. Each set will include some scene-specific characters and accessories and retails from $14.99 to $49.99. The figurines ($3.99 each) have articulated body parts and include characters like Tyrion, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Grey Worm, Ghost, Rhaegal, an Unsullied, a Crow, a Wildling and a Wight.
“[HBO is] a world-class network and Game of Thrones is one of the most visually compelling shows that I’ve ever seen, We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to create high-quality collectible construction sets based on this fan-favorite property. Both collectors and fans of this epic series can build their favorite scenes with this new product line.” – Todd McFarlane
