If you’re a fan of the HBO original TV series Game of Thrones® and love Major League Baseball (MLB) bobbleheads, then you’re in luck. 

FOCO, previously known as Team Beans, LLC and Forever Collectibles, is thrilled to introduce its newest bobblehead series featuring a glorious collaboration between the two entertainment icons.  

This brand-new cross-licensed series features fan favorite MLB players and mascots as well as Game of Thrones®. characters and settings from the award-winning HBO series. All 30 MLB teams are represented in the first series which launched online earlier in the week for pre-order.

The first series includes three unique bobblehead styles, merging the two worlds and features: The Iron Throne, the Ice Dragon and the Night King.

The Iron Throne Bobbleheads depict MLB stars and mascots sitting upon a detailed recreation of the iconic Iron Throne. Each player or mascot clutches a sword and sits beside a banner featuring Game of Thrones® imagery and MLB team logos.

Also included in Series 1 is a bobblehead version of the infamous Viserion, who made its debut in the final episode of Season 7. The wonderful figurine is highly detailed and features a replica ice dragon, posing beside a translucent, ice-textured MLB team logo.

The final bobblehead being offered in Series 1 is the Night King Bobblehead, presenting the ominous villain wearing team-themed armor and sporting a baseball bat made of ice with a team wordmark displayed on it. The base features a miniature ice dragon modeled after the famous last scene from season seven. The Night King stands beside a banner that displays Game of Thrones imagery and MLB team logo.

Each bobblehead is hand-painted, measuring approximately six to eight inches tall and limited out of 2,019 pieces, making these ideal additions to any collection at home, or any desk at work.

“As fans of the Game of Thrones series, FOCO is thrilled to partner with HBO and MLB to launch these unique cross-licensed bobbleheads,” said Matthew Katz, licensing manager at FOCO, in a press release.

“Fans now have the chance to bring together the Seven Kingdoms and the 30 MLB teams, and we are sure everyone will be excited to collect these special bobbleheads,” Katz continued.
