Winter is leaving, and with that will come a new season of Major League Baseball and the final season of “Game of Thrones.” A collaboration announced Monday between MLB and HBO will make winners out of collector geeks.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, which just opened at the beginning of February in Milwaukee, is promoting the offering as one of the select retail partners offering the toys.
Officially licensed by HBO and MLB, and produced by FOCO, just under 90 bobbleheads representing all 30 Major League teams will be released. Fans can purchase National League bobbleheads on the Hall of Fame’s online store here, and American League bobbleheads here.
The first series includes three unique styles:
- Iron Throne: Every team mascot along with several current stars are featured on the Iron Throne from “GoT.” Whether the Mariner Moose can get opposing teams to “bend the knee” is something you’ll have to decide for yourself if you root for the Seattle franchise.
- Night King: The show’s creepiest character has a frozen bat and each team’s logo carved out of ice.
- Ice Dragon: The dragon has turned, hopefully it won’t chill the chances for your team this season.
MLB has teamed with “Game of Thrones” previously for promotional bobbleheads given away at games. These are the first “GoT” bobbleheads produced for retail sales.
“Game of Thrones bobbleheads have been some of the most popular stadium promotions over the past few years,” said Phil Sklar, co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, in a news release. “When FOCO approached us about carrying the complete line of bobbleheads, we jumped on board. These bobbleheads were produced with extreme attention to detail, and we’re confident that baseball and ‘Game of Thrones’ fans are going to love them.”
The eighth and final season of the series will premiere on April 14.
