Game of Thrones 3 3/4 inch Line

Let's talk about Funko and Super 7's great line of ReAction and Legacy action figures. They don't bobble or pop, but they thrill in their own fun way.

Game of Thrones 3 3/4 inch Line

For those that have these figures that came out over the summer, what are your impressions? Are they worth buying?

I bought two sets of all the figures and they look great and play well. My daughter likes that they at least did one woman in the line. She wanted Dany or Arya with Dragons or Needle, either one will be fine. They look great for being 3 3/4 inch and articulation is good to move the figures. Almost all the figures, especially Jon Snow, is sold out near were I live. They are worth buying! Hope they make a second line.

For the most part I think they a great. I will certainly get all figures offered in this format.

The one complaint I have is the shoulder articulation. For these figures I would prefer the ball joint style shoulder.

These are the first 3.75" figures that have given me (and my brother) true nostalgia for the lines of our childhood (9P0A Suicide Squad, too!). We dig em wholeheartedly and I love that each wave ties into a theme/playset.

But, yeah. Something about them makes me feel like a kiddie. In the best possible way.

Cool cool. Just ordered Jon snow and ghost :). Looks like the first wave is "wall themed" based on the characters and the playset for the first wave. I'm hoping the second wave includes stark and/or targarian characters.

Love them. I actually like them more than I originally thought I would too. I have a pair of Jons, Ghost, and the Night King. I plan on getting the others when I see them at retail. I haven't seen them anywhere though other than online. 9POA figures are perfect for 3-3/4 imo. Reminds me so much of my Indiana Jones and Lone Ranger figures.

I'm personally not the biggest fan of the theme waves though. I think it's more cute than intelligent. If we were guaranteed 4 or 5 waves I could understand that approach but these could end at any time. Let's assume they do King's Landing Next instead of Meereen and then we still don't have Dany. As much as I love Funko's figures they go half-in on everything. I have half the Goonies, I have half the Scooby Squad from Buffy, and I have half the Firefly crew. Given the GoT waves are bigger I would have liked to see them pumped with favorites like Cersei, Bran, Tyrion, Dany, Jon, Arya, etc. and gotten secondary characters mixed in later. Just my two cents, but I get that Funko likes to try odd things in the face of questionable sales.

As always, we will make a second series if the first series sells well enough. All I can say is that if people want to make sure that they get more figures, they can show their support by buying the first series. We can't guarantee 4 or 5 waves, the collectors dictate that by voting with their dollars. We WANT to finish the casts, believe me! But sometimes the market just isn't there. We're hoping that this won't be the case with the Got 9POA figures. And as for why we've chosen to do them as a themed waves, that's so people will have something that feels "complete" at the end of each wave's release. Sort of like a show's "seasons". Also, if you throw all the favorite characters into the first wave, the next waves will suffer from diminishing returns. You need to save some biggies to give people something to look forward to.

I totally understand on the sales part. I'm trying to do my part. It's just frustrating from my perspective to buy complete waves and not have everyone join in but I guess that's relative to liking something that doesn't have the mass appeal it once did with stuff like Buffy and Firefly. Unfortunately, I can only buy so many haha.

I think with Game of Thrones there are enough major characters to last several waves before "thinning out the roster" would have even occurred, and then there is always room for outfit variations for characters like Tyrion/Jon/Dany. Again, I understand the idea of the themes, but from my perspective I would feel more incomplete without the more major characters, rather than being able to say I have an area of Westeros covered.

Just off the top of my head, these are all key characters to me:

Ned
Jon
Robb
Cat
Arya
The Hound
Bran
Sansa
Little Finger
Tyrion
Jaime
Cersei
Joffrey
The Mountain
Margaery
Varys
Khal Drogo
Dany
Jorah
Sam
Red Viper
Daario
Tywin
Hodor
Ramsay
Theon
Little Finger
Stannis
Jaqen H'ghar
Brienne
Tommen
Bronn
High Sparrow
Grey Worm
Davos
Missandei
Tormund
Ygritte
Ellaria Sand
Melisandre

That's 4 waves deep without a repeat and that doesn't get us people like Robert Baratheon, Viserys, Gendry or Mance, or another key character I'm sure I undoubtedly forgot to mention. I'm all-in on these. I just personally see you being able to get us more people with free flow lineups than being restricted by theme waves. That doesn't make me any less excited though for the figures. Just my perspective on it.

I'd better get Mance , Edd orJeor Mormont in the Wall wave than Tyrion and the Lord of Bones ...

All the figures are great! But what about Tyrion and the Wall. Want to buy two of them already.

Mr. Reis,
When are we getting Tyrion and the Wall?

Any speculation on when wave 2 would be announced? My guess is next year's toy fair in New York?

I finally got The Wall playset with Tyrion. Wow! This set is solid and very well built. Some assembly was required and there was no instruction sheet included with mine, but I was able to get the platform together so an instruction sheet may or may not be necessary. I really like the set more than I thought I would have. I'm really anxious to see how Funko handles other Game of Thrones locations and monsters like dragons and giants. Having a playset really makes these 3 3/4" figures all the more relevant. It's like 1978 Kenner Star Wars all over again!

I found it at my local Toys R Us in Lafayette, LA. They had 4 sets total and they weren't by the Game of Thrones action figures. The only reason I saw these was because I asked a stocker about Dark Crystal figures which they did not have and he was a fellow collector. It worked out pretty cool in that the stock guy found a Landstrider for himself. He had no idea these were available.

Thanks for the info! I'll stop by my TRU for a look. I was there yesterday but only checked in the collector section. I'll have to widen my search.

I also saw the Wall at a local TRU. Bigger box than I expected! And heavy-ish!

I got my Wall from DCBS yesterday, and it is a nice addition to my toy room! Much heavier and bluer than expected ! I have Jon, Sam & Tyron up top throwing barrels down on the white walker, night king, styr & rattleshirt. When ygritte and tormund arrive from TRU in a couple of days, there will be a different scenario up top.

Any updates on or if there will be a wave 2 of this figure line? I didn't hear or see anything at this Year's toy fair.. is this a bad sign?
