Composite Effects has signed a deal with HBO Global Licensing to produce a high-end line of realistic silicone masks and prosthetics based on creatures seen in Game of Thrones.

Arriving this summer, the first official line of Game of Thrones products will include White Walker silicone mask and glove sets from seasons three and four, and a full White Walker Torso.

The suggested retail price for individual pieces range from $640 to $1590, while the complete set will retail from $1,300 to $2,960.

"It is an honor and a privilege to be working with HBO," said Diana Branton, CFX's chief creative officer.

"Releasing one critically-acclaimed, hit series after another, HBO's reputation for exemplary choices is unquestionable, CFX is proud to be counted among them."

CFX's work in props and masks has been featured previously in TV series and films spanning Twilight: Breaking Dawn, The Last Exorcism and Smothered.

"CFX has a well-deserved reputation for creating top-of-the-line masks and prosthetic pieces for hit series and films," said Jeff Peters, HBO global licensing director.

"When they approached us about creating a White Walker set, we were very impressed with their capabilities and instantly knew that they would deliver a product that Game of Thrones fans would be very excited about."
