When making work for the show we were asked not to make any reference to the HBO game of Thrones show. We could only take our influence from the series of books. This was a great idea for the artists to go deep into their imaginations and not work off likeness of or create homages to the actors involved in the TV series.
I have wanted to make a little collection of figures based on the series for a long time. This seemed like the perfect opportunity so I created 8 action figures all based around a 'Battle Damage' theme. I picked 8 characters who have been battered bruised or have some iconic scaring for their troubles. It was very hard to cap it at 8 as there was so many to choose from. Who knows I might just keep making more.
Each figure is a one of a kind hand painted woodcut. I will be releasing one figure each day up until the opening of the show on Saturday March the 1st. I will reveal all of them after opening night.
Figure #1 Jamie Lannister with 'one handed self-pity action'.
Figure #2 'The Hound' - Battle Damaged Edition
Figure # 3 Theon Greyjoy ' Flayed Edition with Begging Action
Beric Dondarrion 'with non-fatal battle damage'.
Ned Stark with chop and roll action
Khal Drogo with lifeless zombie action
Viserys Targaryen ' Gold Edition'
Figure # 8 ' Robb Stark/Greywind - Mash-Up Edition
All of the figures above have been hand cut and painted and are for sale through the Ltd Art Gallery, Seattle. Each figure is a one of a kind piece. Would you like to see these guys in the shops? If so let me know. Its something I'd like to look into.
