Brienne is one of my favorite characters in Game of Thrones. I credit a lot of that to Gwendoline Christie's portrayal in the HBO show. The character in the books is great, but Gwedoline brings an interesting personality to the character that I just adore. I was a little apprehensive about this figure because she has a very subtle look that balances between feminine and masculine. Historically the execution of characters like this (in toy form) is a disaster. I totally passed on Arya from this wave for that very reason. But this Brienne figure is actually pretty good. Funko is impressing me more and more every month. They have so many successful lines already; Pop, ReAction, Legacy.. not to mention the Vinyl Vixens line I'm dying to hear more about. They even have a dedicated endcap at Target now. I have 5 more Funko posts lined up for the next few weeks. They're everywhere! I can't wait to see future waves of Game of Thrones (and Magic the Gathering while we're at it). Brienne awaits below!
Brienne comes with a sword accessory. I think it's supposed to be Oathkeeper, but without the ornamentation is looks more like a smaller version of Ned's Ice.
Here's an image of Brienne in the show.
And here are some images of the gorgeous (and 6' 3") Gwendoline Christie. I'm obsessed with powerful women.
This picture below shows her sword in its scabbard.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the new Daenerys figure (which I'll be reviewing soon).
