This is a much more attractive price point than the Funk 6" Game of Thrones figures.  I actually boxed mine up the other day to clear some space while I work on my collection room.  The character selection is definitely interesting, as is the level of articulation.  I wonder if Funko will be able to move this line forward a bit further than the 6" figure line?

An awesome price really.  Plus better sculpts and articulation?  I do believe I am in on these.

Wowsa. I am in. I expected these would be retro so I didn't pay attention to the thread. Sculpting and resemblance are great. I can accept the hinge joints since, as someone mentioned, Funko's a small company and they have to cut costs some how.

The sculpts are really shockingly well done IMO.  I'm not a 5POA guy, and that's been my main deterrent on the 5POA stuff (all over the place).  These really have me though.

BTW, might I note that The Wall is marked a "Display", not a playset...  Much like people who pine away for "playsets" in Star Wars actually want displays.  This is MUCH more what they're thinking about, comparatively speaking.  A hallway is not a playset, it's just something that amounts to a glorified stand.  This is really ideally collector-targeted stuff, and the price on the wall isn't even bad at all.  $30 is quite palatable for a nice display for Wave 1.  It'll be simple I feel sure, but it's still cool as hell.

I want that Tyrion too.  Easily it's my first purchase from the line.

That playset is so key in drawing my interest.  Probably because there have just been so few playsets of any kind that something like this ends up being a big deal.

Larger click and hover pics at Funko really shows the detail. Let's hope the paint jobs are up to snuff.

This is really, really great stuff.

A collection of themed action figures, and a "playset" that is really just a display for those specific figures?!

It's like they actually took the time to figure out what modern toy collectors really wanted and gave it to them. I hope they make some money off the effort.

I had no interest in this line at all, though I love the books and the show, but now I find myself wanting to collect them just to be able to support the idea.

Only thing missing is a "stream of urine" accessory to snap onto Tyrion so he can complete his mission to the Wall.  :D
