Dark Horse Comics Reveals "Tywin Lannister" Game of Thrones Collectible Figure
SAN DIEGO, CA – The doors were open at the pop culture event of the year! To celebrate, Dark Horse kicked things off with the reveal of the latest figure to join the growing line of figures based on characters from the smash hit HBO® series, Game of Thrones!
Tywin Lannister, father of Cersei, Jaime and Tyrion and known as the wealthiest man in the seven kingdoms and Hand of the King, is a perfect addition to the upcoming group of detailed collectible Game of Thrones figures produced by Dark Horse Comics.
“We just couldn’t say no to Tywin,” said Dark Horse VP of product development David Scroggy. “It didn’t seem like a smart idea to deny him.”
Exclusively revealed on social media by HBO earlier, the figure prototype could be viewed throughout the show as a key item in Dark Horse’s upcoming products display at booth #2615!
The Tywin Lannister figure joins an ongoing series of non-articulated figures based on characters from the popular series. Debuting in January 2014, the ongoing range will continue through 2015.
The Tywin Lannister figure measures approximately 8” tall on his base. It will be packaged in a full-color window-box package.
Scheduled on-sale date is March 2015, making this figure available in-store just ahead of the season five premiere of Game of Thrones.
