VALYRIAN RESINS DEBUT AT SAN DIEGO COMICON
August 15, 2007
Sharp-eyed Ice & Fire fans at last week’s mammoth San Diego Comicon may have spied a trio of familiar faces among the thousands of items on display. The good folks behind Haute Products, Jed Haigh and Justice Joseph, were there in San Diego, and they brought with them painted prototypes of the first three figures in their “Valyrian Resin” range of Ice & Fire minibusts. I’m told the figures were a huge hit with those who saw ‘em.
If you weren’t in San Diego — and I couldn’t make it myself this year — don’t fret, you’re not forgotten. Here’s your own look.
The first three releases will be:— Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell,
— Daenerys Targaryen, the Stormborn, Mother of Dragons,
— Sandor Clegane, the Hound.
More photos are available on Valyrian Resin’s own website where you will also find information about scale, price, ordering, etc.
The figures are not yet in production, and these are only painted prototypes, so be aware that the final versions will differ from what you see here in various ways. The colors of Ned’s arms will be corrected, Dany’s crown will be of three different metals as described in the books, a dragon or two will be added, and various other adjustments will be made… but these should give you the flavor of the the boys from Valyria have in mind. Their website is up and running up now, so give them a visit and let them know what you think of these… and what figures you’d like them to do next.
