For “Game of Thrones” fans, life between seasons can be dull. Sure, “True Blood” starts back up soon, but nothing—not even sexy southern vampires—can fill “Thrones”‘ place in our weeks.
So what can we do to fill this gaping hole in our schedule now that the season finale has aired? Well here’s one option: we can buy fiberglass replicas of the Iron Throne, put it in our living rooms and sit there Sunday nights. Sure it’s $30K and it might not match your furniture (if it does, can I come over?), but it looks worth it. Besides being huge (7′ high, almost 6′ deep, and 5.5′ wide), based on this image it looks exactly like the real Iron Throne at Kings Landing, currently occupied by Joffrey.
HBO covers some backstory:
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.
This is seriously worth it, guys. Check out details of the throne’s construction on store.hbo.
