    Dark Horse creates Tyrion statue for Game of Thrones collectors

    We’re huge Game of Thrones fans here at GamingAngels. I can’t wait for the show and Wintercast (our podcast) to come back. But until then, Game of Thrones collectors can get their hand on a Tyrion statue newly announced from Dark Horse. The statue depicts Tyrion, as portrayed by Peter Dinklage in the TV show, charging into battle leading the defense of King’s Landing against King Stannis Baratheon’s assault. “When Dark Horse Deluxe began developing a new line of collectibles based on the HBO® adaptation of Game of Thrones, we were pleased to discover we had the full attention of all involved, from the team at HBO Global Licensing to the principals steering in the production,” said Dark Horse’s VP of Product Development, David Scroggy. “The Tyrion statue is a benefit of that communication, and we know the fans and collectors will recognize the quality that is the result.” Here

    Gaming Angels at NY Toy Fair 2011

    This was my second year at Toy Fair and it was still fun this time around.

    Ubisoft reveals “Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood” Collector’s Edition

    Having a fantabulous Collector’s Edition for a sequel seems to be a rite of passage these days. We’ve seen our fair share of them this year. Gone are the days of only adding a metal case and a soundtrack disc to a Collector’s Edition, this year, it’s all about crazy, limited-edition collectibles. Luckily, we can count Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood among these. Not only does $100 get you a copy of the game and a special bonus disc containing video, the soundtrack and more, but you also get a lovely art book, bonus DLC, and one of two jack-in-the-boxes. If you want the “Harlequin” version, pre-order at GameStop, but everyone else that pre-orders gets the “Doctor.” It’s worth mentioning that if you’re in Europe, your offer is a little different. The European “Limited Codex Edition,” described here by Joystiq, looks a lot more interesting, but doesn’t offer any harlequins jumping out
