    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

    Fantasy Friday: The ‘Game of Thrones’ Massacre

    OK, so I’m really late to the game, but lets chalk that up to college monopolizing my time with boring academic readings. But I’ve finally started to read A Game of Thrones, and I have some thought on why the A Song of Ice and Fire books have spurred so much attention. Among the books, TV series and now recently the video game, I’ve been hard pressed to keep away from spoilers. While I haven’t gotten to the overly depressing parts of the series, I know that the book is morbid, and kills likeable characters keeping some people wondering if they really want to continue when all is left are despicable characters. That got me thinking. Why is it that death of likeable characters upset people to the point of not continuing reading the series?
