Giant-Headed Game of Thrones Dolls Are Coming

Giant-Headed Game of Thrones Dolls Are Coming

Gruff murderers, pugnacious nomads, and stoic leaders never looked so adorable.

I'm always a little amazed at humanity's ability to take something bleak or horrifying and transform it into something cute and adorable. The existence of videos like The Adventures of Lil Cthulhu is a testament to this fact, and I'm just counting down the days until someone does the same thing with Slenderman (oh wait, that already happened). So it was only inevitable that the world of George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones, recognized for its ability to make you fall in love with characters before mercilessly killing them, will be cutified in Funko's new Game of Thrones Pop! toy line.

The toy series will come with six figures, including Daenerys Targaryen, The Hound, Khal Drogo, Ned Stark, Tyrion Lannister, and a White Walker. Whether you choose the adorably tired-looking Stark, the stern Daenerys with her tiny dragon, or the sad Hound that looks like he needs a pat on the head, these toys are an amusing addition to any collection. The only one that seems slightly out of place is the dwarf Tyrion, but that's simply because his toy by necessity is sized to the same proportions as all the others.

Game of Thrones may not have been written for marketing purposes, but given the scope of the universe and the popularity of the HBO series, these toys and others like them will probably make a pretty penny. Winter is coming, my friends. And you'll just want to pinch its cheeks.

Big head? Ned? Yeah, this will end well :P

So, are we still spoilering this sort of thing?

Awesome, but it's a shame there's no Arya. And I somehow doubt that even this treatment could make Joffrey lovable.

Tyrion actually looks pretty close to scale :P

Hoho! Drogo even has his signature eyeshadow. It's like looking at the real thing. Amazing.

So. Freaking. Adorable.

I want a Lil' Ned Stark right the fuck now.

Must have The Hound. I would pat his head as instructed and tell him everything will get better... After it gets a hell of a lot worse.

How much does this cost and where can I get one?
I'm so getting a Ned.

Yeah, Ned seems like the best one. I want one right the fuck now.

The lack of Ayra and Snow is disturbing.

Should of had a Joffrey doll, that way I could burn it.

Ned Starks doll has a flaw though.

Yeah, as others have already pointed out there's a problem with the Ned Stark one.

Wrong topic damn

why does tyrion have a nose and will it be smaller than the others

Does no one else find these things creepy as all hell? It's the blank, staring eyes...

If I plan to get any of these, I'm going for the White Walker. It seems the be the only one with emotion.

Except for the Hound, who seems to be sad.

I want them all! That White-Walker is clearly the best thought. Although aren't Lannisters famous for their blonde hair and Tyrion's mismatched eyes?

Dany should have Drogon (Black) and Viserion (White) with her as well.

I think those things are more disturbingly soulless than adorable, but to each his own, I suppose. It's definitely the eyes. Those large orbs of dread, each the color of the void, staring blankly, unforgiving into my soul. They remind me of Hello Kitty, of which I am equally disturbed by.

Absolutely stupid and ridiculous.

But hey, people seem to like and want them. So I guess I'm wrong.

This time....

Sober Thal:

Nope, I agree with you. I fail to see the appeal of these things. The Khal Drogo one is just downright weird and...

Proverbial Jon:

This. The eyes are so lifeless, takes away from the cute and lovable angle they're going for.

I don't even like the show, but these are cute as hell.

Proverbial Jon:

Yeah... Stay away from me, dolls.

TheProfessor234:

Ned appears to be on crack.

I think I want the white walker. Look at 'im. He's so angry and adorable!

Also, poor hound. Poor, poor hound.

StriderShinryu:

I actually thought there was at first. The Tyrion one is rather disappointing. It's missing his distinguishing facial features (mostly those of the actor, but the scar would be important) and his all important money pouch! He actually looks more like Arya dressed as a boy.

This is the kind of crap I file under "nerd junk" in my mind. Essentially stuff that's supposed to be "Epic" or "Awesomesauce" in some way but instead winds up being tacky wastes of plastic and money. Here's some examples with counter examples to make this point easier to swallow;

Dr.Who Timelord replica stopwatch --> Shut up and take my money.
Tardis shaped USB hub --> Kill it with fire.
Game of thrones house stark shirt --> All kinds of win.
Game of thrones Bighead cartoon character toys --> This will forever sit on my shelf and remind me of why I can't be trusted with my own wallet.

Dibs on the White Walker.

Aw, who am I kidding, I'll find less conspicuous means to boost my Hopeless Nerd Cred.

*has an AC3 Ezio figurine, the Fallout 3 bobblehead, a Neo bust and prays for the days when the Headcrab plushie will become available once more*

I do not understand this.

I never understand the appeal things like this has.

Why is the Daenerys doll wearing clothes?

*looks at title*
Well, I'd better brace myself.
Seriously though, they're not my thing. I don't see the appeal of buying memorabilia of a show or game, other than an article of clothing.
