If there was ever a price point for it, $2.75 is probably it.

Be nice for customizing.  Wish I had that store locally Nick!  But yeah these sucked far more than I'd hoped so I bowed out as well. :(

I did want some of the parts but oh well.

I've barely seen these anywhere locally actually.

I saw that they announced Twin Peaks figures too... they look great, and I'm all about buying some Twin Peaks figures.

But I'm incredibly skeptical that they're going to look good when the finished product turns up now, so it's wait and see.

I seriously thought about it.  And I have seen the Wall playset with Tyrion.  That looks okay.  But all of the wildlings look kind of weak, and there's no getting past droopy faced Jon Snow.

And when I thought about the ongoing project of getting my collection room organized versus getting into this line?  The collection room seemed like more of a priority.

Yeah I got my best look at these at a comic store in the mall, which had most all of them but a handful of the most popular...  God, they were terrible.  I mean the heads would be good fodder, the bodies even have elements.  I'd have bought the guy with the skull mask if they had him because he'd be the only one I'd want regardless.  The others, they were just fodder to me, mostly their heads really.  :(

I wanted to like them a lot more than I was able to ultimately muster up.

I still can't get over the dropoff in quality from the Funko line of 6" Game of Thrones figures and this 3.75" figure line.  Where did the quality go?

I have that same question.  I like be Firefly and wanted to get those but when I heard the figures broke just taking them out of the package, I passed.

I know these are kind of ass to a lot of people, but considering they're all we have in the scale for GoT, I noticed that some of them are on sale (or clearance?) at TRU.com.  They're more a customizing want for me, but I'd been passing till now.  And the wall playset is only $20 and a Tyrion figure so that's cool.

I checked today to see if any if them qualified for their current 20% off clearance blast, but only The Wall was eligible. And oddly, only some of the figures were marked down to $6.98, others were still full price. Odd.

Yeah it's kind of all over the place but still it's something.  They don't have quite a few figures.  A shame about the line but I'm glad I got some for a much better price.  I didn't get Jon and he's really the only one I want at the moment that I wouldn't use for fodder, but maybe at some point.
