HBO Global Licensing has teamed up with Funko to develop a line of Pop Vinyl figures inspired by characters from its hit show, Game of Thrones.

The collection will feature six figures - Tyrion Lannister, Ned Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, Khal Drogo, The Hound and a White Walker - and will be released to tie in with the key Christmas selling period.

Funko manufactures Wacky Wobblers (bobble-heads), Pops (vinyl figures) and Plushies (plush dolls), specialising in figures which resemble cartoon/video games characters, movie characters, musicians and historical figures.

"Vinyl figures have become extremely popular, so it's great to be able to develop these unique figurines based on one of the most successful fantasy franchises ever," said James Costos, VP of HBO Global Licensing.
