The detail of this thing is phenomenal, especially considering the 13 inch Jon Snow figure with the Direwolf costs $300. I bought this expecting that the photos were more of a concept design, and the actual figure would end up being cheap and tacky, but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived and had a significant amount of detail. It's made of plastic and rubber, and the base is hollow and light, but for the money, you can hardly do better than this. It looks phenomenal next to my season 3 collector's edition boxset and 7 inch Iron Throne replica. I was very happy with the quality for the price paid. I can't wait to buy more like it when they release additional figures in the months to come. I was actually happy it didn't articulate, as I bought it as a collectors item, not to play with, and I find the seams caused by adding articulation to be tacky and childish. This feels more like an adult collectible, for an adult TV show/book series. Couldn't recommend it more for the budget conscious collector who appreciates quality and detail in collectibles over bell-and-whistle type functionality.
