Oh, Funko, you know exactly how to take away our money with the quickness. We don’t make enough for the amount of cuteness you put out on a regular basis — like these new Game of Thrones Pop! Vinyls. Similar to the last installment, focusing more on characters from the North, these dolls feature more Northern-centric characters specific to season five…and a few other interesting additions (but we’ll get to that in a second).
First up? The Red Priestess herself, Melisandre, complete with a flame in hand and, no doubt, a metaphorical thirst for royal blood. Riding up alongside her is Stannis Baratheon, the — spoiler alert? — now-dead usurper king to whom Melisandre had originally hitched her wagon. (Maybe that’s why his doll looks so darn sad?) If we’re being honest, though, we’re getting serious Meryn Trant vibes in the face with this one. Must be that scowl.
There’s also (finally!) a doll for everyone’s favorite lovesick son of the North, Ser Jorah Mormont. The disgraced former queensguarder interestingly enough does not — spoiler again! — feature the patch of greyscale he contracted at the end of last season. Maybe that means everything will work out for him in the…HAHAHAHA sorry, I couldn’t even finish typing that sentence with a straight face.
In the featured image at the top, you’ll notice a red-eyed Drogon and a Drogon-riding Khaleesi that we are already coveting like MAD. The Night’s King and Grey Worm also look pretty neat, too. Apparently these are Hot Topic exclusives so, y’know, start lining up now. Also included are Bronn, one of the Sons of the Harpy, and Margaery Tyrell (pre-jailing, natch). But don’t just take our word for it, check them all out in the gallery below!
