We are pleased to announce the newest product in our line of licensed collectibles from the HBO® series Game of Thrones®. The Unsullied Armor is a genuine leather prop replica. It was modeled directly on the actual screen used prop from the show, with accurately matched finishes and dimensions. It is a limited edition of 500 pcs and will come with a certificate of authenticity. The Unsullied Armor will retail for an MSRP of $700, we will start accepting preorders, on Saturday November 1st, for December 2014 deliveries.
At long last I can share with you some news on our GRRM A Song of Ice and Fire book license. We have new approved concept art, it took awhile, but here is Oathkeeper.
Again, this was designed working with George R.R. Martin through our book license, it is not a replica of Oathkeeper as see on the HBO show.
George did not want to use paint and the only way we know to do the red and black blade is with a chemical patina on real damascus, so our intention here is to make only a real damascus version of this sword, there will not be a plain steel version. We also intend to include a custom poster featuring artwork the includes the sword, along with the typical GRRM autographed COA.
At this point preorders will not be opening soon, this is just the first step. Expect preorders possibly late Winter 2015, and deliveries around a year from now, assuming we get the prototype in and everyone is happy with it.
We also got approved concept art for Daario’s ladies on the book license, which will be shared with you soon.
In addition to our normal production runs, we sometimes make Artist Proofs for HBO to hand out to VIPs (actors, directors, executives, etc). We made 18 Artist Proofs for both Longclaw & Ice Damascus, HBO ended up not needing all 18, and said we could sell some since Longclaw Damascus was sold out. So. I present to you, a matching set of ultra rare artist proof Damascus Ice and Damascus Longclaw. We have a few such sets to distribute, one we hope to offer as a contest prize, one might be donated to a charity auction, this first set we’re putting on eBay.
At Motor City Comic Con a few weeks back Khal Drogo himself, Jason Momoa, was kind enough to hang out at our booth and try out the merchandise.
We are pleased to announce the newest product in our line of licensed collectibles from the HBO® series Game of Thrones®. The Unsullied Helm is a leather and steel prop replica. It was modeled directly on the actual screen used prop from the show, with accurately matched finishes and dimensions. It is a limited edition of 2500 pcs and will come with a display stand and a certificate of authenticity. The Unsullied Helm will retail for an MSRP of $300, we will start accepting preorders, on Monday May 12th, for late summer 2014 deliveries.
We get questions frequently “Are you going to make more book products?” or “When will you make more book products?” As you may have heard, George R.R. Martin is incredibly busy, and unlike our HBO license where we copy an existing design, when working with GRRM we have to generate new original designs based on what is in his head, and that requires his time, which is in short supply, so the book products necessarily have slowed down, but they have not stopped, nor do we plan for them to stop.
In fact, we just renewed our license with George R.R. Martin through 2026, which is great because it ensures us the opportunity to do replicas from the final books, should any new interesting weapons surface in them, as well as to continue with book items long after the show finishes (though, I know many of us are hoping for spinoffs or feature film prequels). We’re certainly very happy with the renewal, we can’t wait to see what new weapons might surface in the final two books and reproduce them for you. Currently in development on the book license we are working on Oathkeeper, and Daario’s “ladies.”
Longclaw Scabbard, VS0108, will start to ship tommorow. If you’ve moved or changed address since you placed your order, please let us know. If you backordered both the scabbard and the sword in the same order, we will hold off on shipping the scabbard until your sword ships later this month so they can go together.
We are going to start processing shipping labels for Longclaw, Damascus Longclaw, and Damascus Ice soon. You may be emailed a tracking number, that does NOT mean the product has shipped, only that we processed the label. We’re looking at the 1st week of March right now but there are so many labels to get through, we want to start working on them. Also, if you’ve moved and need the address changed, please EMAIL us so that your sword finds you safely.
Everyone has has ordered Longclaw should get it shipped, but we only are getting enough damascus swords to cover a portion of the earliest existing preorders, the rest will be here in May.
Ice is sitting in Detroit, about 90 miles from our warehouse in Lansing, MI Customs still has not released it yet, as soon as they do it could be in our warehouse within a day. So we’re going to start processing shipments on Monday, you’ll start getting shipping confirmations. PLEASE if you’ve moved since you’ve ordered EMAIL us an updated shipping address. Changing your address on our website will not change old orders.
For international customers, if you wish to order with regular mail shipping and have Christmas delivery you must select UPS Expedited or UPS Express/Saver shipping during checkout to ensure delivery by December 24th, you have until probably the 18th if you choose one of those methods. Customs clearance issues aside, UPS express is 2 business days to most areas of the globe. Canadian customers would be the exception, you could still use UPS standard up to probably the 17th before you had to go to an air option. For domestic customers, regular ground shipping should be fine also up until the 18th, after that you should consider upgrading to 3 day, 2 day, or Next Day Air.
