Martin plush doll. What do they have in store for the convention this year? Nothing official yet, but when official Twitter account for the Game of Thrones showed off a The Hand of the King Bottle Opener, Factory Entertainment suggested to “keep your eyes peeled this July”. Sounds promising. Very promising.
