Game of Thrones is in its eighth and final season, and I’m simultaneously excited and saddened to see the series draw to a close. Omar Ovalle is also a big fan of the show, so much so, that he has been building Game of Thrones characters in the form of LEGO constraction (constructible action) figures. He has created some of the show’s key characters, such as Bran, John Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and Tyrion Lannister. In order to achieve each likeness, Omar customizes his characters using polymer clay with vinyl and the occasional bit of synthetic fur. The results are delightful, so much so that its enough to stave off my anxiety over what’s going to happen in tonight’s episode.
When Eero Okkonen set out to build a female archer, he found inspiration in nomadic cultures and the character of Lyndis from Nintendo’s Fire Emblem series. Eero has built a reputation for building impressive-looking characters out of LEGO bricks, and his archer is no exception. In this model, bright, bold colors and earth tones play off of one another to great effect. In terms of form, the figure’s pose is realistic, from the stretch of the bow to the flow of the dress.
The LEGO booth at Toy Fair this year only showcased one buildable or “constraction” figure, a new Darth Maul figure. Several other buildable figures from the spring 2018 wave have been revealed today, including Han Solo and the Range Trooper from the upcoming Han Solo movie.
