If you stand for the Free Folk on Game of Thrones and have a special place in your heart and on your shelf for collectible figures, chances are you’ve noticed the absence of a certain ginger wildling. (No, not the dead one, the other one. Sorry, Ygritte.) If that’s the case, then I have good news: the time has come for you to clear some space in your display case for a Tormund Giantsbane figure.
Part of Dark Horse Direct’s inaugural product line, the 8″ x 5″ figure is crafted in the likeness of Kristofer Hivju. The kind of viscera that tends to attach itself to every character on GoT is mercifully absent. Still, Tormund’s blade, body, and (most importantly) beard look battle-ready. That does mean the expression is a little more somber than what we’re used to seeing when Tormund is chatting up Brienne, but that’s more than made up for with the fierceness the Free Folk raider is famous for. (I can’t resist alliteration when it’s right there in front of me, OK?)
The figure retails for $39.99, and 300 will be available at Booth #2615 at Comic Con. You can also go ahead and order one on Dark Horse’s site if you’re not going to be at SDCC or you simply can’t wait. Dark Horse is also making an Iron Throne replica, which will be available for pre-order soon. (By my estimation, collectors won’t be able to seat Tormund on said throne, at least easily. But hey, you can try.)
Will you be adding this bad boy to your collection? Let us know in the comments!
