Dark Horse and HBO Partner Up for Game of Thrones

Season 2 of Game of Thrones doesn’t kick of til 2012, but fans of the show and collectors will have something else to look forward to next year, as Dark Horse Deluxe and HBO are teaming up to debut a product line of Game of Thrones merchandise that will launch March 2012.  The product line will include a large variety of items including: statues, busts, and action figures; prop and jewelry replicas; and barware, stationery, and other collectibles.

Here’s a bit of the official press release from Dark Horse:

Dark Horse Deluxe is proud to announce, in partnership with HBO, a vast Game of Thrones product line debuting in the spring of 2012, leading up to the show’s second-season premiere in April. Licensed product categories derived from the series will span a large range, including statues, busts, and action figures; prop and jewelry replicas; and barware, stationery, and other collectibles. This exciting new line of products debuts with a range of branded magnets, patches, playing cards, coaster sets, and more.

“We are delighted to be part of HBO’s licensing roster for Game of Thrones. We are big fans of the television adaptation,” said Dark Horse’s VP of Product Development, David Scroggy. “We are working closely with HBO to develop a line of products inspired by the series that will delight the fan base.”

I wonder if a full sized throne replica will be made.  I need one to sit upon regally while hosting a Season 2 Premiere Game of Thrones viewing party. What sort of Game of Thrones Merchandise would you like to see produced?

    Love it! A full size throne would be AWESOME! Better yet, imagine a GoTs toilet? Even more epic.
