Funko likes to tease us with news on upcoming figures and exclusives, but every once in a while they manage to shock us by putting a figure out to market with no warning.
It looks as if Funko has done it once again with the release of Viserion, the third dragon from the Game of Thrones series. We knew we would eventually see the figure, since his siblings Drogon and Rhaegal had already been revealed, but Viserion has been handled a bit differently than any exclusive we’ve seen before.
FUNKO POP : VISERION – DETAILS
What makes this exclusive release truly unique is that it was first found at Archambault, a Canadian retailer,
though we couldn’t find it for sale on their website. 🙁
UPDATE 1-09-14 : We now have a link, thanks to our Twitter friend Cristina >> Viserion on Archambault.ca
What does this mean for us in the U.S.? Rumors online indicate that the figure will soon appear at Hot Topic stores as well. We couldn’t find a release date anywhere, which is par for the course with Hot Topic. They never publicize release dates of their exclusives.
Follow along with Nerd Fu on Facebook and Twitter for details. We’ll be sure to post something as soon as these Pop! up on our radar. (pun fully intended)
UDATE 2-04-14: The Viserion exclusive magically appeared on HotTopic.com this morning and is now available to order, but listen to us when we tell you that you better hurry. This exclusive may only be online for a day or two at most, then you may never see him again.
