Dark Horse Deluxe, an imprint of Dark Horse Comics, has revealed the latest figure in an ongoing series of characters from the critically acclaimed HBO® series Game of Thrones®—Varys.

Varys will be the twenty-third figure in the series and is slated for in-store release in April of 2016, just in time for the launch of season 6 of Game of Thrones.

A member of the Small Council, Varys is known as the Master of Whisperers. He has an army of “Little Birds” that keep him well informed of all matters pertaining to the realm. Dark Horse captures the slyness of Varys in the detailed plastic prepainted figure, which measures 8.25 inches in height and comes in collector window box display packaging.

“We have worked closely with HBO Global Licensing to ensure that all the aspects of costume detail and likeness are perfect,” Dark Horse Product Development head David Scroggy remarked, “and we are pleased with the result.”

The Varys collectible will join four additional Game of Thrones figures in spring 2016: Ygritte, Margaery Tyrell, Oberyn Martell, and Grey Worm.

Ygritte, quick witted with a temper as fiery as her hair, is a skilled archer living in the frozen wilderness north of the Wall. She is the tempestuous lover of Jon Snow and also his foe in battle.

Raised an aristocrat, the beautiful and cunning Margaery Tyrell is the widow of Renly Baratheon and was betrothed to Joffrey until his death. Later wed to Tommen Baratheon, she is imprisoned by the Faith Militant, a victim of Cersei’s schemes. Her fate is still pending as season 6 approaches.

Prince Oberyn Martell, also known as the Red Viper of Dorne, is a noteworthy character. His battle with Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane is one of the more exciting moments in the series.

Grey Worm has emerged from slavery to fight for Daenerys as a free man. Skilled at both battle and subterfuge, he is a sly warrior.

Response to the Game of Thrones collectible figure line has been overwhelming, and additional characters are in development for release in summer and fall 2016.

All of these Game of Thrones figures will have a suggested retail price of $24.99 and are packaged in deluxe window box packaging.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
