theon greyjoy finally gets own funko pop figure

Eight seasons and several hardships later, Theon Greyjoy is finally getting his due in the Game of Thrones fandom. Bran dubbed him “a good man’ in Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3, and now Funko has announced its first official Theon pop! figurine. It depicts the Greyjoy scion with bow and arrow, protecting Bran in the Godswood.

They also announced an appropriately supersized 6 inch Mountain figurine, described as “Queen Cersei’s fierce protector”.

Theon is one of the oldest characters in Game of Thrones, one who has been around right since Episode 1. Which is why it’s kinda surprising that no official Theon Funko Pop! figure existed before (this does not include custom-made and on-request pop! figures). It seems that despite his chequered past, Theon’s heroic actions in Season 8 (and Bran’s “good man” certificate) has earned him some serious brownie points with the fandom.

Theon is not the only Funko Pop! figure from Season 8 that’s creating a buzz though. Three other Pop! figures related to Season 8 have been announced only days ago. One depicts King Bran the Broken, the other is a new Daenerys Targaryen figurine, atop a fire-breathing dragon. The third is a glow-in-the-dark version of the Night King, depicting his last moments when he turns into ice after being stabbed by Arya’s catspaw dagger.

None of these figures is up for sale at the moment, or even pre-order, as no release date has been announced. But they are coming soon, that much is guaranteed.

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin updates fans about Winds of Winter

Game of Thrones TV series ended more than a year ago. The final season of the show divided the fan-base into two. One loved it, the other wanted something more. Hardcore fans are still waiting for the next book of the series, The Winds of Winter.

Game of Thrones writer George R. R. Martin recently updated fans about his progress on the upcoming book. He noticed a sudden spike in the number of viewers on his blog Not a Blog, and joked, “Sometimes I do get the feeling that most of you reading my posts here care more about what is happening in Westeros than what is happening in the United States.”

He further wrote, “So let me assure you that, when not sweating out election returns or brooding over other real-world problems, I have continued to work on THE WINDS OF WINTER.

No, sorry, still not done, but I do inch closer. It is a big book. I try not to dwell on that too much. I write a chapter at a time, a page-at-a-time, a sentence at-a-time, a word at-a-time. It is the only way. And sometimes I rewrite.” 

Martin explained he has been spending a lot of time with the Lannisters. Cersei and Tyrion in particular. He has also visited Dorne and the Old Town in his book. He is currently writing new chapters, revisiting and tweaking old ones as well.

George wrote, “None of this is even remotely new. It is how the first five books were written.” 

The Game of Thrones author is slowly picking up speed. He once gave an example of how the books will be different from the show. Are you excited for The Winds of Winter? Talk to us in the comments below!

George R.R. Martin hints at great progress on House of The Dragon production

Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. The popularity and success of the show have left fans worldwide wanting for more. HBO has already teased the fans with the announcement of Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon. Moreover, the television network has added to the hype by adding Paddy Considine to the show’s cast as King Viserys. Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is really happy with the show’s progress. Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog :

George R.R. Martin hints at great progress on House of The Dragon production

Well, aside from COVID-19 slowing everything down, we are making great progress on the HBO prequel HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Ryan and Miguel are in London, casting has begun, it is all looking very exciting.”

He also talked about his other projects, “I wish I could say that things are also going great on all the other television and film projects I am involved with, either as a producer or as the author of the original source material (i.e. novels and short stories). I can’t. Very little shooting is taking place, and almost nothing is being greenlit. Of course, development continues… but there’s a reason they call it “development hell.” Sigh. 

So that’s where all that stands. Or at least, that’s as much as I am allowed to tell you right now. Hang in there, friends.” 

The great strides in the progress of the much-awaited series are welcome news for all the fans worldwide. Are you excited for the House of The Dragon? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin applauds Joe Biden’s speech

The political drama in the US Presidential election was no less than the hustle for the Iron Throne on the Game of Thrones. The twists and turns were similar to the epic fantasy, that ended with Joe Biden’s victory. Biden gave his first speech as the new US President on the night of 7th of November. The speech was very well received by the general public.

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin welcomed Biden’s win through his blog Not a Blog. He lauded the new President’s speech with heaps of praises. He wrote:

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin applauds Joe Biden’s speech

Joe Biden gave a marvellous speech tonight: eloquent, uplifting, stirring, a speech that spoke to all that is best in America, to our hopes and dreams rather than our fears. Time will tell what kind of president he will be, but everything about the campaign he waged confirms the fact that this is a good, decent, and intelligent man. 

It brought to my mind the classic Democratic hymn that was FDR’s campaign song, and later used by JFK, LBJ, and many others.”

Game of Thrones cast has often expressed their dislike for the former US President Donald Trump. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) even raised a toast to Biden’s victory, mocking Trump at the same time.
