We must have these brand new Funko “Game of Thrones” pops!
The greatest time of year is upon us! No, not Christmas — but basically the next best thing. Toy Fair is officially happening now — from February 18th through the 21st in NYC. And the most exciting new toys we’ve seen so far are Funko’s Game of Thrones pops!
Because we gotta have our pops (yep, that just happened).
Funko always brings out their very best pops for Toy Fair, and 2017 is definitely no exception. The newest wave of Game of Thronespops includes Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Tormund Giantsbane, Cersei Lannister, Bran Stark, Wun Wun, and Ramsay Bolton and Jon Snow’s final battle.
So yeah, we’re pretty excited about these.
After an insanely long hiatus, Game of Thrones is finally returning to our lives. Season 7 will be coming to HBO in June, which is obviously still a really long time away for those of us who JUST CAN’T WAIT ANY LONGER. But we understand why it’s taking so long.
Casey Bloys, the president of HBO programming, explained the extra long wait in a statement:
“Now that winter has arrived on Game Of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing, Bloys said. “Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.
OK, fine. Winter on Game of Thrones can’t be winter unless it’s actually winter outside, so we’re going with it. But since there are only seven episodes in this upcoming season, we’re really going to need them to be amazing. And since Game of Thrones is…well…Game of Thrones, we have no doubt that season 7 will impress beyond our imagination.
June can’t come soon enough!
