So how does the glowing feature look?

Haven't tried it yet, but visually he's a vibrant blue.  Icy, but not sure if he's accurate otherwise.

The regular version of the White Walker looks pretty cool.  I hope that at some point we get the Night's King White Walker that was saw in season 4, too.  The glowing feature seems like it would be more along the lines of something from the books.

The limbs and head are pretty good with the glow, the chest area isn't as visible but there.  Pretty cool, though.

Thanks a lot brother, I was able to score one of these on the way home from work today! He definitely looks cool,  looking forward to trying out the glowing feature tonight. I was hoping for more of a traditional fluorescent green rather than the blue accents, but I guess blue fits better with the character.

I scored a glowing White Walker, too. But I didn't realize they were promoting it as a Comic Con exclusive. But to have it in stores nationally during SDCC?  That's a pretty cool promotion. 

On another note, has anyone been able to get a decent version of the Hound?  One that at least has decent paint apps?

Yeah, I have, Nick.  I love that figure.  Might be my favorite of the wave.

Maybe Hasbro can learn something from Funko since not everyone can make it to a "Big Con" where they have such exclusives.  So Kudos to Funko for sharing it with everyone.  If those at the cons want something special, then maybe make a packaging change and not include or make a figure that fans would want *[cough] 6" Han Solo in Carbonite [/cough].

Wave 2 should be hitting soon, I expect.  Not sure if I should be checking TRU or B&N more.  Seems like B&N restocks more than TRU.

Amazon has pre-orders available for wave 2.  They've offered up a date of August 18th for availability.

Apparently, there was another SDCC exclusive: Tyrion Lannister (Battle of Blackwater)... looks the same as the previous release, but comes with a helmet.

And, Walgreens has an exclusive GoT figure of Tyrion as the Hand... just found that out from someone on yakface.  So, I guess there are other figures to look for.

So, I hit up 4 Walgreens and came up with nothing in regards to Tyrion Lannister... none of them carried the GoT figures, so I wonder if I'll find any at all?

Since my last post, I've scored two of the Hand versions of Tyrion.  I found one today that had better paint apps on the Hand pin than the other one.  I understand that it's tough to get the gold pain all down the point flawlessly, so I wasn't too concerned, but I saw one that was flawless and grabbed it.  But, there are issues with paint apps.  On some the palm joint is not painted so it looks like Tyrion used the privy and used his palm to clean up...  Otherwise, I've seen the 5 o'clock shadow and no shadow at all.  But mostly, I think they are decently done and am glad to have this figure.  It's hard to believe I'll have to start checking for wave 2 soon.

I've checked a couple of Walgreens stores, but no sign of the exclusive Tyrion.
