Review of POGO Brand Game of Thrones Minifigures
Many fans of Lego wished that Game of Thrones would be turn into a official Lego sets. The reality is there would be zero chance for it to happen due to the popular HBO series contained many mature adult theme that isn’t suitable for children. Some GOT fans had made their own LEGO scale minifigures based on the characters from the series. The minifigures shown in this blog are made by POGO in China, in which the designs are copied without any consent and compensation to the original artists. If you feel wrong ethically we suggest you don’t buy them. Though the printing of the body of the minifigures are acceptable, you might want to change the head piece for the facial expression that’s more appropriate for the characters.
POGO had released two series of Lego compatible Game of Thrones minifigures. The first series PG932-943 was released back in Nov. 2016. What we have here is second series PG1051-1062 launched this month.
“Winter is coming.” First minifigure is Eddard “Ned” Stark as in POGO PG1062. Please note that the horse and the golden sword is what we added for photo shoot. The printing on the body is acceptably good.
“His Grace summoned me to King’s Landing, I’ll go to King’s Landing. But not alone. Call the banners! ” Robb Stark minifigure as in POGO PG-1054. The wolves aren’t included. The wolves are from SY206 series made by Sheng Yuan. The armor was printed directly on the body instead of giving a separate piece of armor.
“A girl is Arya Stark of Winterfell, and I’m going home.” POGO PG1052 Arya Stark. The baby wolf is made by Sheng Yuan. Arya had short legs and came with a rapier. The facial expression is printed a bit too low.
The earlier version is POGO PG940 which featured a younger Arya.
POGO PG932 Jon Snow from previous release.
“I did what I had to do to survive, my lady. But I am a Stark, I will always be a Stark.” POGO PG1053 Sansa Stark. The staff is not included. Nice front and back printing. The cape is very thin.
“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.” POGO 1057 Cersei Lannister. The minifig had side arm printing, which is the only one that has it in this series. The motif is printed on both side of the body. The wizard hat is not included.
“There are no men like me. Only me.” POGO PG1058 Jaime Lannister. Like Robb the armor was printed on the body. The “golden” sword is to show he is very rich. The spear and the shield is a clone of the Brickwarrior accessories by POGO. As for the white horse, it came from XINH X0169 series.
“It’s hard to put a leash on a dog once you’ve put a crown on its head.” POGO PG1056 Tyrion Lannister. Well that red scar across the face, either you like it or you would think it’s overdone. The lion on the chest seem to have a Santa hat put on its head.
Another version of Tyrion Lanister released by POGO last year. POGO PG936 featuring Tyrion holding a cup. The face didn’t have the scar.
“I did warn you not to trust me.” POGO PG1059 Petyr Baelish aka “Littlefinger”. The motif on his body is printed well, though the silver application could be improved.
The characters that we have introduced so far.
“A Khal does not need a chair to sit upon. He only needs a horse.” POGO PG1061 Khal Drogo. This minifigure captured the essence of Khal Drogo very well. We like the three horse heads printing on the belt. The sabre and Tantaun is added for photography purpose. You could order POGO PG670 for Tantuan.
“I am Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, of the blood of Old Valyria. I am the dragon’s daughter, and I swear to you that those who would harm you will die screaming.” POGO PG1060 Daenerys Targaryen. The facial expression didn’t look Daenerys at all. The blue outfit kind of disastrous for Mother of Dragons. And the hair piece shall be white. The bad ass dragon is made by POGO. We wrote a review of the POGO Smaug before.
The dragon “Drogo” if you wish to call it that way. Otherwise it’s Smaug from Lord of the Ring. You can get POGO Smaug from Aliexpress.
The other version of Daenerys POGO PG941 as Khalessi with tattered clothing.
All twelves Game of Thrones minfigures from POGO PG1051-1062 series.
Smile for the camera. The show won’t be fun without the direwolves, horses and the dragons. You could order POGO PG1051-1062 for all the minifigures shown here.
Just side track a bit, because the “Winter is coming”, you might want to add the White Walkers to your collection. Available as POGO PG393 on Aliexpress. Who wants an army of White Walkers?
