The Hound is one of those interesting characters who starts out as an antagonist, but who soon turns out to have more layers. He's a remorseless killer, but he also seems to have a protective streak when it comes to the Stark girls. And all the scenes with him and Arya in the fourth season are pure gold. He's a very tall man, and his figure is suitably the largest one in the line so far. It also has what is probably the best likeness out of all of them, although the facial scarring could probably be a little more pronounced. The Hound is also well accessorized, with two swords, a removable scabbard, and a helmet. Both swords are different, and there is a scabbard for each of them. The dog faced helmet is made of a very soft, rubbery plastic that allows it to slip on and off of his head easily. I don't know how well that will hold up long term, but it looks good and is easy to use. This is probably my favorite figure of the line so far. I can't wait to pair him up with Arya from the next series.
