Dark Horse is kicking things off at New York Comic Con with the reveal of the latest release in its growing line of figures based on characters from the smash-hit HBO® series Game of Thrones!
Hodor has emerged as a favorite character in the HBO series, often seen carrying the disabled Bran.
Dark Horse is now revealing a special sculpture of the two characters: Hodor with Bran Stark in a woven carrier strapped to his back. All the details from the series are captured, and the exacting paint application conveys the subtleties of character likeness and costume. Practically a double figure, it measures over nine inches tall, keeping the size proportions of previous releases in the line.
The prototype will be revealed at the Dark Horse booth (#1636) at New York Comic Con, held October 9–12 at Jacob Javits Center in New York City. The figure is slated for an April 15, 2015, on-sale date in stores.
Hodor and Bran join other new Dark Horse Game of Thrones figures in April 2015: Tywin Lannister, Joffrey Baratheon, and Petyr (“Littlefinger”) Baelish.
“We have been floored by the response to these figures,” Dark Horse Product Development head David Scroggy noted, “and this one is our most ambitious yet.”
The Game of Thrones: Hodor and Bran Stark figure will have a suggested retail price of $39.99.
