All Game of Thrones Funko Pops are not created equal, and we’re here to give you a review for our top five picks in all of Westeros!
Sure, Game of Thrones might have ended in a rather—well—bittersweet manner.
But we’d be lying if we didn’t say we won’t miss the likes of Wun Wun, Tywin, Lannisters, and the whole cast of the series.

From the Battle of the Bastards to the ascension of King Bran the Broken, HBO’s seminal TV show has given us unforgettable moments put on screen.
And with that amount of popularity, it’s no surprise that collectible powerhouse Funko is right in the thick of its merchandising efforts.
Wide Range of Toys
It includes everything from Funko pop Game of Thrones exclusive vinyl figures to Funko Game of Thrones dragons,
You could bet your silvers that this company has more than glutted the world with their toys.
When you think about it, all those Funko pop Game of Thrones rare figures will likely survive long after humanity succumbs to the long winter.
The Iron Pop
But enough about all the doom and gloom of the real world; we’re here for some Night King and Jon Snow goodies, Dammit!
Now, all Game of Thrones Funko Pops are ripped directly from the show, so don’t expect any Moqorro references here.
Whether it’s Robb Starks, Samwell Tarlys, or Lord Varyses, there’s going to be a vinyl figure from the Game of Thrones Funko pop collection featuring these characters.
In this article, though, we’ve selected the five top-notch toys among all Game of Thrones Funko Pops to be released so far.
It includes Game of Thrones Funko pop collection’s Daenerys Targaryen and Drogon Rides figure.
It also includes others such as the Jon Snow vinyl figure, Night King and Viserion, Ghost, and the King of the North Jon Snow.
Our TOP 5 Game of Thrones Funko Pops
“Rare but Worth it!”
Our Rating: 4.5
Nearly all Game of Thrones Funko Pops looks the same.
In spite of that, one of the main reasons this belongs to our top 5 is the fact that this one relatively breaks the company’s mold.
We’re used to seeing the same packaging and design whether it’s a Funko pop Game of Thrones exclusive or a Funko pop Game of Thrones rare figure.
This Daenerys Targaryen and Drogon vinyl figure, though, belongs to Game of Thrones figures’ Pop Rides collection.
In this case it combines one of the Funko Game of Thrones dragons and a regular Pop vinyl figure.
Large Rectangular Packaging
This is the 15th release in the Pop Rides line.
So like we said earlier, it’s still pretty refreshing to see this kind of packaging in the Game of Thrones Funko pop collection.
Instead of the usual 5-6” box, this comes in a larger rectangular packaging.
It looks a little bit more premium than your regular Yara Greyjoy or other single figure Pop.
Yes, It’s Fiery
Funko has definitely hit that sweet spot that managed to hook thousands of nerds into all Game of Thrones Funko Pops, including this one.
Standing around five inches high and a whopping SEVEN inches long, this Funko pop Game of Thrones exclusive is definitely not your average Game of Thrones Pops’ fare.
Design-wise, it captures Daenerys Targaryen and Drogon’s TV likeness pretty well (as long as you’re into Funko Pop’s design).
The Dany figure is what you’d expect from the line: beady eyes, soft rectangular head, etc, but we say the hair has some nice sculpt to it.
The Drogon figure, though, goes above and beyond the usual Funko fare by molding scales and teeth to it.
It’s a really great-looking Funko pop Game of Thrones exclusive!
Yes, it’s Exclusive
Did we just say it’s a “Funko pop Game of Thrones exclusive?” because it totally is, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
We said it before: all Game of Thrones Funko Pops aren’t created equally, so finding this one could be quite a doozy.
Considering that this Funko pop Game of Thrones rare figure looks good and is exclusive you can bet its price would only go up.
So, pick up one for your Game of Thrones Funko pop collection before the secondary market decides to gouge you for this vinyl figure!
“Great but Rare Figure”
Our Rating: 4.5
Let’s be honest: almost all Game of Thrones Funko Pops —or any Funko pop— gets boring after numerous new releases using the same basic design.
This early Jon Snow vinyl figure, though, might look plain but it works that same quality to its advantage (just like on TV!).
Nothing special could be found in the packaging: it’s your usual 5’ Funko Pop box with all the brandings they come with.
However, what—err—pops out in this particular figure is the addition of the cape and good ol’ Longclaw!
Though not spectacular in detail, these two non-removable accessories make the figure all the more accurate to its onscreen counterpart.
So, yeah, it’s one of those instances where Funko’s simplistic design works to its advantage.
The Snow Crow
Standing at the usual 3.8 to four inches, this Night’s Watch version of the character is the one seen from the earlier seasons of the series.
Now, there are other versions of Jon Snow in the Game of Thrones Funko pop collection.
But this one just has that mix of nostalgia and good design you won’t usually in the others.
From that cape to its sword, this figure is perfect for the long winter coming, or any season for that matter.
But, as much as we love this particular version of the character, there’s something you need to know about it.
You Know Nothing!
Hey now, there’s some good news and some bad news when trying to get your hands on one of these Jon Snow Pops.
First, the good news: it’s not a Funko pop Game of Thrones exclusive, which means it’s a general release in the Game of Thrones Funko Pop collection.
The bad news, though, is though it doesn’t belong to the Funko pop Game of Thrones series 1 capsule, it might as well be.
This is the 7th release in all Game of ThronesFunkoPops, which means it belongs to series 2, and we all know what that means.
Simply put: Jon Snow is a Funko Pop Game of Thrones rare figure, so chances of finding it on shelves at your local store are very slim.
But, there’s always the online option, if you’re willing to spend more than its SRP, we mean.
“A Very Cool Funko Pop!”
Our Rating: 4.5
The thing about Funko pop Game of Thrones rare figures is that you could buy other, better ones for the price you’re paying.
Case in point: the Game of Thrones Funko pop collection’s Night King and Icy Viserionfigure, which is part of the Pop Rides line.
Now, fans of GoT know that the Night King is the big baddie of the whole series.
That’s true especially after what the icy bastard did to Wun Wun and Mag the Mighty!
You’d Love This Though
However, despite you hating the character on the show, you’re probably going to love this figure among all Game of Thrones Funko Pops out there.
For one, it’s a Pop Rides entry.
That means the Funko pop Game of Thrones rare figure is going to be bigger than any regular release out there. .
The Night King and Viserion figure here has a lot going for it, and we’ll definitely tell you all about it.
A Cool Ride
The best and most obvious quality you’ll notice in this figure is its size.
Even for a Funko pop Game of Thrones collection Pop Rides figure, this one stands a tad larger and longer.
You’ll usually find Pop Rides figure in all Game of Thrones Funko Pops to be along the 7-inch long and 5-inch high scale.
But this one ups the ante by adding another inch to each of those dimensions.
Big and Badass
This Game of Thrones Night King and undead Viserion figure stand six inches tall and has a length of 8 inches from tail to nose.
It’s pretty big for a Funko Pop figure.
That’s not necessarily a good thing (but it is for us!), as you guys might want something more compact on your display.
However, this figure is still up to scale with all its other Game of ThronesFunko Pop collection counterparts, so you won’t have any problems there.
Honestly, we like this figure so much, we’re hankering for a King Bran the Broken Pop right now so we could create a season 8 diorama!
Winter Doesn’t Matter
Regardless if you’re collecting the more mystical characters of the series, such as Daenerys Targaryen’sdragons or giants like Mag the Mighty, this one is definitely worth it.
The Night King and Viserion combo here is just badass going by Pop standards.
And the best part is it’s not a Funko pop Game of Thrones exclusive.
And as of now, it doesn’t belong to the Funko Pop Game of Thrones rare figure category, so grabbing one of this is still fairly easy.
Even better, it won’t break the bank should you decide to add it to your Game of Thrones Funko Pop Collection.
“A Very Cute Funko Toy!”
Our Rating: 4.5
And one of the best reminders of that in all Game of ThronesFunkoPops’ line is the Ghost figure.
The figure renders Jon Targaryen’s trusty lupine friend in that Funko Pop design.
Unlike Jon Targaryen, though, you won’t have the heart to let go of this one when you get your hands on it.
The Ghost figure from the Game of ThronesFunko pop collection, like most other Pops, stands at around 3.75 inches.
As far as detail work goes, you’re getting a very cute rendition of this albino direwolf (like from a Disney movie).
The Dire Wolf
Now, size-wise, it could be off-putting for people who want a to-scale figure of Ghost to go along with their Jon Snow or Samwell Tarly Funko Pop.
That’s true especially when considering this one is just as tall as all the others.
Well, if you’re into Pops, you’re probably not a stickler for scale, so we’re not going to hold it against the figure.
When it comes to packaging, there’s nothing spectacular about it: you get that basic Funko Pop box complete with all the necessary brandings and insignias on it.
About the Likeness
Going to the likeness, though, this particular toy honestly has us divided.
All Game of Thrones Funko Pops try their best to match their basic likeness while keeping that Funko flavor to it.
But this Ghost figure just has a bit much of the latter.
Funko v Likeness
On one hand, it’s fine to interpret the character using Funko’s style—you know, beady eyes and all.
On the other, though, and this applies to the Ghost figure: the likeness is minimized, meaning it really doesn’t capture the direwolf’s appearance.
Sure, you have the red eyes and the white fur, but this one looks more like a fox than a wolf.
Don’t get us wrong, though: we still love it, and it has a special place on our shelves where we proudly display it.
So, simply put, this particular figure is right at home all the other Game of Thrones Pops out there!
No Hunting Needed
There is one quality that absolutely raises this Ghost figure to classic levels.
That is the fact that you won’t have to troll the internet or scour the local toy stores to get your hands on it.
As far as Game of Thrones Pops go, Ghost is the kind that’s not rare but belongs to that “classic” category.
Suffice it to say that this is one of the easier Funko Pop figures to get a hold of.
And we can imagine that with the character’s popularity, we won’t be surprised if Funko decides to release a super sized Pop version of this cute little direwolf.
A 19” direwolf vinyl toy from Funko would definitely make any Game of Thrones collection all the better.
“A Figure Worth Every Penny!”
Our Rating: 4.5
Jon Snow is put twice on our Top 5 figures among all Game of Thrones Funko Pops, because Kit Harrington is such a hunk.
Seriously, though, this is one of the best releases from the Game of Thrones Funko Pop Collection, and we’re going to break it down for your pleasure.
First, though, a little background: this particular version of Jon Snow is the one we see during the Battle of the Bastards and after that.
This is the Jon that hung out with Davos Seaworth and Jorah Mormont instead of, say, Wun Wun or the Robb Starks of the world.
Then, it’s clear that the quality of sculpt on the main body here didn’t take a dip as with their supersized Pop figures.
We’re looking at you, super sized Pop Batman.
Being the King in The North, it’s only right that this figure comes with the same quality of details, and Funko delivers on that.
Think of this as the human version of any of the Funko Game of Thrones dragons detail-wise.
By that, we mean no expense was spared when sculpting this particular toy, from his trusty Valyrian steel sword to that nicely quilted tunic of his.
Game of Thrones Pops have a tendency to skimp on details, with Funko opting instead to churn as many characters as possible with little regard for likeness.
Luckily, we’re getting a King Jon figure that curbs that particular trend.
The North’s Star
First of all, it’s wonderful that Funko opted to use a sculpted beard instead of just painting one on the figure.
Size-wise, it’s your standard Funko Pop, which is around 3.75 inches— nothing to write home about— and that goes double for the figure’s packaging as well.
Aside from those sculpt details and accessories, those tiny painted scars just scream “LIKENESS”.
We absolutely love how Funko decided not to pull any stops when manufacturing this version of King Snow.
So, believe it when we say that out of Game of Thrones figures out there, this one is near the top of our list.
Conclusion on All Game of Thrones Funko Pops
Now, we’ve given you our Top 5 among all Game of Thrones Funko Pops out there for you to choose from.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve just gotten into the whole Game of Thrones Pops game.
Or you’re a seasoned one who hears of even the faintest whispers of release dates like Lord Varys.
All Game of Thrones Funko Pops are for any given collector or fan out there.
And if you’re not a fan of Pops, then maybe the Funko Game of Thrones Legacy Collection is more your wheelhouse.
The point is, just like the classic TV series, Game of Thrones has something for everybody, and all Game of Thrones Funko Pops are amazing.
