8 Awesome 'Game of Thrones' Collectibles for Under $25
The upcoming premiere of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is one of the most anticipated TV events of all time. But if you love GoT the way Rhaegar loved Lyanna, the impending Season 8 kickoff probably has you experiencing some mixed emotions. Part of you can’t wait to see what will happen now that winter has finally come. The other part knows you’re going to miss all the violence and dragons and nudity and ice zombies when they’re gone. Especially the nudity.
The good news is that Game of Thrones doesn’t really have to end. It can live on. And I don’t just mean in your heart. It can also live on in your bookcase, curio cabinet, desk, mantle, or anywhere else you keep cool stuff. That’s right. We’re talking about collectibles.
When it comes to Game of Thrones collectibles, there’s something out there for everyone. And while some of it can be pretty expensive, obviously designed with highborn lords and ladies in mind, there’s also a lot of cool stuff for us lowborn folks that won’t require you to take out a loan from the Iron Bank.
Today, just in time for the start of Season 8, we’ve curated a list of eight awesome Game of Thrones collectibles under $25. Whether you worship the old gods or the new, we guarantee you’ll find something that’ll tickle you fancy. As the Bravossi say “valar ēdruta sindigon,” or “all men must buy.”
The Game of Thrones Stark Molded Handle Umbrella isn’t made of Valyrian steel, so it won’t kill a White Walker. But it does feature a molded 3D replica of the hilt from Jon Snow’s Longclaw, and its 36-inch canopy features House of Stark direworlf sigil and the words “Winter is Coming.”
The Game of Thrones Iron Coin of the Faceless Man is an exact replica of the coin Jaqen H’ghar gave Arya Stark back in Season 2. Made of 99.98% pure iron and crafted with antique machinery right here in the USA, it’s the perfect give for anyone in your life who’s always wanted to give up their identity and join the mysterious guild of assassins known as the Faceless Men of Braavos. Valar Morghulis!
Game of Thrones Pop! Vinyl Figures: (Daenerys w/ Throne, Tyrion, and More)
Games of Thrones is all about unlikely duos, from Arya and The Hound to Jamie and Brienne. However, no duo is more beloved than Tyrion and Dany, the patricidal drunk and the heir of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons. Now you can own your very own 3¾-inch version of both. The Daenerys Sitting on Throne Deluxe Pop! Vinyl Figure, available now, features Khaleesi on the Iron Throne, rendered in Funko’s fun Pop! Vinyl figure format. Meanwhile the Game of Thrones Tyrion Lannister 5 Star Vinyl Figure from 5 Star Vinyl, available for pre-order and shipping later this month for only $10.99., features Tyrion wearing his Hand of the Queen pin and holding—what else?—a goblet of wine. And if you’re looking for another character’s vinyl figure, odds are you can find it here).
If you like to play Game of Thonres drinking games, where you take one shot every time somebody says “winter is coming” or “a Lannister always pays his debts,” or two shots any time somebody loses a limb or gets burnt to a crisp by a dragon, then you really should get this Game of Thrones House Sigils Shot Glass 4-Pack. This set of four 1 oz shot glasses feature the sigils of the Lannisters, Targaryens, Starks, and Baratheons. (Booze not included.)
The Night King is easily the most mysterious and badass character in Game of Thrones, and if you buy the Game of Thrones Night King Action Figure you can play with him all you want. Er, I mean, you can leave him in the original packaging and just look at him all you want. This detailed 6-inch action figure has 12 points of articulation, comes with Night King spear and blade accessories, and is decked out in the classic outfit featured in Season 7. But, again, none of that matters, because you’re not really going to play with him, right? Wink.
If you need a little help keeping tabs on which house controls what territory, check out the Game of Thrones Westeros Map Magnet Set. It features a 10x7-inch magnetic map of Westeros, plus 16 markers representing seven different houses. Use it to keep tabs on all the maneuverings in the show, or formulate your own strategy to conquer the Iron Throne.
Do you give excellent advice? Are your political opinions above average? Might as well make sure everybody knows it with the Game of Thrones Hand of the King Lapel Pin. It features gold plating with an antiqued finish and measures 1⅞-inches tall by ¾-inches wide. Available now for pre-order, this item begins shipping later this month.
Obviously you don’t play with toys, because you’re an adult. But if you did play with toys, the Game of Thrones Drogon Deluxe Action Figure would probably be your favorite. This incredibly detailed 13-inch replica of Daenerys’ mighty Drogon features movable legs, wings, tail and neck for customizable posing, and it comes with a base and window box collector packaging. However, if you want to take him out of the packaging, yell dracarys, and have him incinerate the Night King, it’ll be our little secret.
If you love Game of Thrones so much that you just want to snuggle up in bed with creator George R. R. Martin, this George R. R. Martin 12-Inch Deluxe Talking Plush is about as close as you’re going to get. Little plush George is decked out in his trademark fisherman’s cap and suspenders. He features 10 exclusive audio quotes from the man himself, including such iconic lines as “winter is coming,” and “I have a tender spot in my heart for cripples, bastards, and broken things.”
And yes, this one is a little over $25.00. But it’s a bonus item, and it’s worth it.
