Launching today at 4pm EST and available for purchase in the ThetaDrop Marketplace, this artist-driven series will combine collectible Knights brand visual elements, special one-of-a-kind branded merchandise, and unique experiential activation opportunities for the Theta community.
This unique artist collaboration, featuring original commissioned digital artwork, is with Brooklyn-based artist, Stephen Holding.

I’m excited to launch this exclusive artist-driven NFT series,” Knights Director of Business Development Matt Roche said. “They allow gaming fans to connect with the gaming world in a new way by purchasing artwork that puts a creative spin on the virtual worlds that they love in a distinct style that speaks to gamers. We also think the Knight Commander is a fun and unique way to introduce people to the Knights – both our aesthetic and our story
The Knight Commander will be available for purchase in a closed pack where the image is revealed upon “opening”. No two in the 1,250-piece collection are alike and some pieces will feature more rare elements than others.
