Politics is a dirty game of the best of times and we already know that in Westeros it can be deadly, but what would happen if they borrowed a little something from American politics and introduced attack ads?
Alliances are forged and broken; back room deals are cut; principles are sacrificed. It’s a dirty game. Yet imagine how much more unsavory it would be if super-PACs and dark-money outfits existed in the Seven Kingdoms
Daenerys Targaryen: Wrong For Dragons, Wrong For The Realm
It’s well-known that tv shows often recycle props to save money, but many consider it bad taste that the season 1 finale included the head of George W. Bush in a bad wig because it was what they had laying around at the time.
HBO is selling official, life-sized “Iron Throne” replicas for a mere $30,000 (and an extra $1800 for shipping but we’re sure you won’t quibble about the) and I want one. I think it would look rather striking in my living room as sit there demanding the heads of my enemies while I play XBox.
It would fit well in my office… hmm..
The Game of Thrones Iron Throne is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. This custom chair is designed to mimic the seat of kings in the Seven Kingdoms. On the show, the Iron Throne was constructed by Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of the Seven Kingdoms. He made it from the swords surrendered by his enemies. Legend has it, it’s made of a thousand swords that took 59 days to hammer out into a throne. Spikes and jagged edges in every direction make this one very intimidating lounge. Our version is constructed of hand-finished, hand-painted fiberglass and fire-proof resin that’s been twisted and turned to re-create the Game of Thrones design. Now’s your chance to own this very special custom-made piece of furniture that, by all appearances, is more closely related to art. Extra large in size, it measures over 7′ in height, close to 6′ in depth and 5.5′ in width. Calling it “impressive” is an understatement.
