Dark Horse To Sell Collectibles Directly To Consumers

It's aptly titled Dark Horse Direct.

Dark Horse is looking to give back to its customers, or at the very least, eschew Diamond a little. The comic book publisher has launched a new division focusing on collectibles titled Dark Horse Direct. Headed by former Dark Horse Director of Marketing, Melissa Lomax, Direct was created to market high-end, limited-edition collectibles.

Two of the line's first items revolve around Game of Thrones. The first is the Tormund Giantsbane Figure. Available for pre-order now, Tormund retails for $40.00 and is due to ship to website customers in early August 2018. Also, 300 of the figures will also be available for purchase in the Dark Horse retail booth #2615 at San Diego Comic-Con.

The second is an 18" Iron Throne Replica. Working alongside Gentle Giant, Direct has replicated the seat of the kings of Westeros for the low, low price of $499.99. The item is not available for pre-order yet.

The non-GoT launch item is the Umbrella Academy: Spaceboy Maquette. Standing 14" tall by 19" wide, the Spaceboy Maquette pulls the character right off the page for only $299.99. This item is now available for pre-order.
