HBO’s smash hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, which is based on the books by George R. R. Martin, has been a massive success since the first season premiered in April of 2011. The show attracted a large following of dedicated fans, and it is one of the most popular fantasy-based series since Peter Jackson’s film adaptations of The Lord Of The Rings novels. HBO has released plenty of merchandise to promote the show from t-shirts and flasks, to hats and coffee mugs. But I believe that they have stepped up their game and outdone themselves with this Iron Throne replica.
Now truly dedicated fans can be even more pleased with HBO after seeing that they have announced a flawless Iron Throne replica which is available for a mere $30,000. You just can’t find a better deal than that on an Iron Throne these days. I am willing to bet it is not the same Throne from the books that was built by Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of the Seven Kingdoms. But then again, who am I to question the origin of such a wonderful piece of handiwork.
The structure measures 7’2″ in height, 5’5″ in width, 5’11” deep, and weighs a surprisingly small 350 pounds. It is made from hand painted fiberglass. The throne will take about six weeks to ship to you, and due to its gargantuan size, will tack on an $1,800 shipping and handling fee to your currently impressive $30,000 tab. If you’ve got a big wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket, you can pick it up here on the HBO website.
In short, this masterwork is the perfect gift to give to your dearest Game of Thrones fan friend. Just remember, this will make someone you love happy, and you can’t put a price tag on happiness, not even a $31,800 price tag. Game of Thrones has currently completed two full seasons and the third will be premiering on March 31, 2013 on HBO. You can pick up season one on DVD to begin catching up on the show and wait for the release of season two on DVD on February 19, 2013.
