The Mother of Dragons is my new friend

LEGO minifig versions of characters are a weakness of mine. Sometimes I'm tempted to buy a whole LEGO set just because of the minifigs included. I've barely dived into the world of customized figures, and I can tell it's going to be dangerous. Just look at this Daenerys Targaryen figure!


Etsy seller miniBIGS has come up with a whole Throne of Bricks set featuring the characters from Game of Thrones that you know and love. They don't look quite as menacing in blocky form. I'd still keep an eye on Dany's dragon though.


Series one includes five figures - Tyrion Lannister, Ned Stark, Jon Snow, Arya Stark, and Daenerys Targaryen. Each figure comes with a fitting prop - a glass for Tyrion, Needle for Arya. It's perfect. What I really love about these figs is the level of detail. Just check out the embroidery on Tyrion's doublet, the Hand of the King pin that Ned's wearing, and the fabric print of Arya's undershirt - it's just like we see in the TV series! miniBIGS does fantastic work. 

Round one sold out in no time, and they're taking pre-orders for the second printing happening in August. They'll only print 80 more complete sets.

Since this series ended up being so insanely popular, miniBIGS is considering a second series. To this I say, yes please!

  1. Well... not to be a spoil sport or anything... but isn't this blatant copyright theft?

    This isn't one geek customising figures for himself or downloading episodes before they are available to buy... this guy (or chick) is making money on somebody elses ideas!

    1. You are correct. Etsy is full of people selling unlicensed stuff.

    2. It would be if they called them "Game of Thrones", but the do not. They are clearly called "Throne of Bricks" to avoid any copyright issues. None of the actual characters names are used so they can't get in any legal trouble for producing these figures.
