What's the one thing in Westeros - home of HBO's hit Game of Thrones - that everybody wants, but only one person can have? The Iron Throne, the seat made of hundreds of swords that sits in the center of King's Landing. And now, thanks to HBO, you can own your own Iron Throne for only $30,000. Plus Shipping.
Seriously, when this came across our desks, our jaw dropped a bit. We checked our bank balances, and space in our New York apartment, and ultimately determined we'll probably stick with just having thousands of comic books stacked precariously around our abode, instead of a chair made of swords. But it was a tough decision.
The good news for you, though, is that HBO is making these babies, which are the actual size of the actual Iron Throne used in the TV show to order. So if you have $30K, and the room, it can be yours. But please note, that the Throne is so big - it's made of hand-finished, hand-painted fiberglass and fire-proof resin that measures over 7' in height, close to 6' in depth and 5.5' in width - it also costs $1,800 to have it shipped. Plus there's the cost of fighting off all the pretenders for your throne, but that's another issue entirely.
Check out two shots of the throne, and if any of you buy it... Ummm, can we come over and sit on it a little bit? Thanks.
