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.
