Funko Legacy Figure: Arya – Value $10 on Amazon

You’ll get one of three Funko Legacy figures: Arya, The Hound, or The White Walker. While I would have been happy with any of them – I was extra happy to get Arya because, honestly, who doesn’t love Arya.

This line of Funko figures is more of an action figure than a vinyl collectible – so you’ll find a lot more articulation.

Arya comes with her sword, Needle!

Dark Horse Comics Game of Thrones Mug – Value $10 on Amazon

You’ll get an 11 oz mug featuring either the Lannister or Stark sigil. I was a little more unlucky here and got the Lannisters.

It’s got the Game of Thrones logo on the back as well!

I do love that it looks like concrete – plus, it’s dishwasher and microwave safe.

There come in piece and can definitely be a pain to construct!

But once you’ve got them built, you’ll notice the tiny details that McFarlane is known for.

These can be added to larger construction sets as well. If you’re looking for a great Game of Thrones set from McFarlane – I can’t recommend the Iron Throne Room set more! I’ve put it together myself!

IDW’s The Game: On Fire Edition – Value $18 on Amazon

You’ll get a card game from IDW – it includes the original card game + expansion pack.

The-Collectors-Case-January-2017-0031

This is a quick-play, 20-minute card game. Here are some details of the gameplay from Amazon:

In The Game: On Fire, 1-5 players work together to try and discard 98 cards into 4 different piles while never telling each other exactly which cards they’re holding. Adding fuel to the fun are the new “On Fire” cards, which MUST be played on when they hit the table.

Dark Horse Comics Game of Thrones Playing Cards – Value $8 on Amazon

You’ll get a deck of cards featuring all of your favorite Game of Thrones characters.

I love that the face cards depict corresponding characters.

3 Packs of Topps Lord of the Rings Trading Cards – Value $6 for all three on Amazon

Finally, you’ll get three packs of movie cards featuring Lord of the Rings. Why Lord of the Rings? I’m not sure.

The-Collectors-Case-January-2017-0020

The depict movie moments from Return of the King.

They also have randomly inserted authentic autograph and memorabilia cards. I was lucky enough to pull and autograph!

Verdict: I had a blast will all of this Game of Thrones stuff – especially the Funko Legacy figure! Other lucky subscribers would also get a bonus Funko POP – so the value would shoot right up for me if I had received one – did you get one? Which character? Overall, I really liked this box – the shirt, mug, mini figures, and Funko Legacy figure puts this one way over the top for me.

What did you think of the January delivery from The Collector’s Case?
