The end." — ASM (@ASMzine) July 8, 2015 @MattGuzy @chrisrtxv …. Damn, I think I just wrote ASM's review. NOBODY STEAL THAT. — ASM (@ASMzine) July 8, 2015 There you go.

Review sample provided by Hasbro and Hunter PR. When Hasbro announced that there would be a follow-up to last year’s Comic Con Kreon exclusive set, I got giddy.

Dark Horse SDCC Game of Thrones Stark Shield Plaque

When Dark Horse announced that they would make a small replica of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Stark Shield for San Diego Comic-On 2013, we here at ASM knew we had to get one. Initially asking Matt Guzy of Awesome Toy Blog to be the procurer, we were then pleased to find out that HBO Shop was going to put a limited supply on their website the opening night of SDCC.  And by pleased we mean, “Holy crap they just tweeted that they put some up on their website I gotta get to my computer where’s my credit card RIGHT NOW HOLY CRAP!” Now,
