To celebrate the launch of Game of Thrones’ final season this April, which coincides with Major League Baseball’s Spring Training, FOCO announces a new range of licensed, limited-edition bobblehead figures for all the GoT and MLB fans out there.
The new line of bobbleheads is officially licensed jointly from HBO and the MLB and are available for preorder now. The first series will be released on Feb. 25 with figures of the Night King, Ice Dragon, and Mascot Iron Throne. A secondary series will drop in April with additional MLB players on different GoT-themed backgrounds and sets.
“We are thrilled to be one of the select retail partners for the officially licensed Game of Thrones MLB bobbleheads from FOCO,” CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, Phil Sklar, says in a statement. “With both baseball season and the final season of Game of Thrones coming, this is the perfect time for this unique, new bobblehead series that combines Game of Thrones with America’s pastime.”
The collection features fan-favorite GoT characters and MLB players and mascots for all major U.S. teams in three designs for the first series. With the Iron Throne bobblehead, each MLB mascot (and current players) sits on the iconic throne, holding a bat and displaying the team’s banner. (I mean, all-star, fan-favorite player Yadier Molina sitting on the Iron Throne is oh-so-fitting for series two, and I think all St. Louis Cardinals fans can agree on that one.)
The Night King and Ice Dragon figures show the iconic season-seven characters beside frozen-over baseball accessories and team logos.
“As fans of the Game of Thrones series, FOCO is thrilled to partner with HBO and MLB to launch these unique cross-licensed bobbleheads,” Matthew Katz, licensing manager at FOCO, says in a press release. “Fans now have the chance to bring together the Seven Kingdoms and the 30 MLB teams, and we are sure everyone will be excited to collect these one-of-a-kind bobbleheads.”
