The next time someone asks George R.R. Martin about the status of his forthcoming book “The Winds of Winter,” he’ll have a toy to tell them in an exasperated voice, “I’m working on it!”
The “Game of Thrones” author took to Twitter to post a photo of him with Factory Entertainment’s new talking George R.R. Martin plush toy. “How cute am I?” Martin writes, while wearing a “GRRM” hard hat.
This is a different version of the GRRM plush doll Factory Entertainment previously released. The company is selling the new model, replete with a battle-axe and armor, exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con at Booth #2647. The toy will cost $60, and only 500 of them are available. It also comes with 12 Martin-recorded quotes and a collector’s card he’s signed.
If you won’t be in San Diego, don’t fear, because there’s still a talking GRRM doll for you. The original toy can be purchased online for $29.99.
An ad for the original doll shows it saying two things in Martin’s voice: “It’s a nice day for a Red Wedding” and “I’m working on it!” There are 10 quotes on that one, all record by Martin.
