The beard. The cap. The suspenders. But mostly the beard. Everyone knows that George R.R. Martin is the snuggliest writer in fantasy fiction*, and now you’ve got your chance to get your cuddle on with the A Song of Ice and Fire author.
Factory Entertainment, Inc., a producer of licensed toys and collectibles, announced today that it has entered into a multi-year licensing agreement with Martin. The first product is a collectible plush of the actor, dressed in his trademark fisherman’s cap and suspenders. The plush even “says” ten exclusively recorded audio quotes, so if you’ve ever dreamed of having a short and possibly non-sequitur heavy Q&A with George, this is your chance.
Factory Entertainment will be debuting the plush this weekend at the New York Toy Fair, February 14th through the 17th, 2015 (booth #4952)
A number of other GRRM-centric products are planned, but we’re not sure what those might be just yet. Factor Entertainment already makes and distributes Game of Thrones licensed toys and collectibles, along with licensed products from Outlander, Archer, DC Comics, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Adventure Time, James Bond, Men in Black, Ghostbusters, Universal Monsters, Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Jaws, Temple Run, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Monty Python.
So, just a suggestion here, but can we have a Plush Werner Herzog next?
*Or so we’ve heard. Do not attempt to snuggle or cuddle with the real GRRM without express invitation to do so. Writer not responsible for the consequences of inflicting undesired contact upon GRRM. Play it safe and snuggle Plush George instead.
