Ah that's the best route for these for sure I think.  Funko stuff has been oddly distributed to regular retailers I've found.

I had a couple other things on my EE wishlist come in-stock over the past week, so I put together a $80 order with Jon and Ghost included. 

Looking forward to checking them out.  If I like what I find when I look them over, I'll probably grab Samwell, Tormund, Ygritte, and the rest over the summer.

I see some on eBay and the facial paint apps really pales against the samples. If these are an indication of the run, it would be a disappointment.

Jeff, my only thot on the elbows was they don't have that "u" notch like the knees do.  Looks more like a rounded pin.  Wrists I was always just wishful thinking. :/

Not sure how in or not I am at this point.  Don't need another collection but articulation aside these are nice sculpts in a much preferred scale.

Looking forward to checking them out.

Got Jon and Ghost today.  Ghost has 5 POA (neck, 4 legs) and Jon has 9 POA (ball neck, 2x shoulders, 2x elbows, 2x legs, 2x knees).  No ball joints on elbows or knees, but the ball join head is nice.  Would make for some nice easy customs if you want more Crows to guard your wall or whatever.  The samples I got are pretty nice deco wise. 

It's a really nice middle of the road figure.  Good sculpt, decent articulation, good deco - Pretty decent value for just $10 when compared to a lot of other stuff out there.  I think I will eventually pick up Tormund, Sam, and Ygrette.   Maybe go for the White Walkers too, maybe not.  Def going to skip backgrounders like Styr and Rattleshirt though.   Hope they can keep it going. I look forward to seeing what they do for Wave/Series 2.

Wish we could get some confirmation whether TRU or Target will be carrying these. Barnes and Noble seems to have gotten out of the 3&3/4" game.

Saw the walker at gamestop...  Looks neat.  I have some EE ordering going on so I may just tack on a couple GoT guys but I'm gonna pik and choose on the line.  Ball jointed elbows and wrist joints would've had me all in.

Just gonna throw it out there - if anyone sees these at Gamestop this week please help a brother out and post a UPC/Item#/SKU so I can call around to try and find these.

I was surprised and disappointed to see they have not added these to their website yet despite selling them in their stores. They are normally much better about that stuff than most retailers.

THANKS!!  :)

Gamestop finally got these up on their website this week, but the closest store with any in stock is 42 miles away from me. So I just went ahead and bought all of them as a lot on eBay for less than $10 apiece shipped, pretty pleased about that. Look forward to checking them out firsthand.  :)

Got all 9 figures today and they are terrific IMHO. Only downside was the bubbles are not well glued to the cards at all, so about 3-4 of them came right off during transit. Not a huge deal as I was pretty sure I would open these anyway, but fair warning to carded collectors.

Also kinda bugs me that I now have 3 different scales of GOT figures to display, and a pretty random assortment of character choices in all three.

Not much news out of SDCC on these toys, but I did hear they are considering either King's Landing or Mereen for the next themed wave. I think Mereen would be a lot cooler...dragons, sons of the Harpy, etc.

I hope they aren't disappointed by the first wave sales. There seems to be almost no distribution on this line whatsoever outside of a handful of Gamestops and specialty shops.
