Dark Horse Unleashes Night King Limited Edition Bust


Game of Thrones is quite possibly the hottest show on right now. The show has started to deviate from the books and one of those deviations is the prevalence of the Night King. The character made a grand entrance in the brilliant episode "Hardhome" and the Night King ended the episode with a medieval mic drop. Dark Horse is commemorating the character with a bust of the Night King, set to debut in Spring 2016.

“Demand for our previous large-scale Game of Thrones statues and busts has been tremendous,” said Dark Horse Product Development head David Scroggy. “Items like our 14-inch Iron Throne replica, the Jon Snow and Ghost statue, and the Daenerys and Drogon bust have sold through quickly. We expect the Night’s King bust to be just as popular!”

Drawing on the skills of sculptor Dave Cortes, Dark Horse has captured the Night’s King in full detail. The bust measures 8 3/4 inches tall. His 12-inch arms are raised as if he is a conductor orchestrating a crescendo, while his otherworldly blue eyes challenge Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch army as they retreat. The Night’s King bust will be packaged in a full-color, oversize collector box. The release date is set for April 2016. Suggested retail price is $129.99.
