Own the Iron Throne

In Westeros they have to fight and kill and scheme for the Iron Throne.

Out here in the real world, you can just buy it.

The HBO Shop is offering a full-sized (yes) replica of the Iron Throne for sale. You can own your very own for a mere $30,000. Plus shipping and handling:

I don't who keeps records of these things, but this may well be the largest and most expensive item of merchandising ever offered for a TV show. Unless STAR TREK sold a full-sized flyable ENTERPRISE when I wasn't looking.

Hey, maybe if they sell enough of these, they will do the Painted Table next!

I am ALL up for a Painted Table! Maybe they can have a miniature of it.

As long as it doesn't have shadow babies or Melisandre attached, I think it would be a lovely addition to my home. Makes playing tabletop games more exciting!

Amused. Iron Throne - I thought it was pretty uncomfortable to sit on it. And who could afford it??? Thanks for sharing, though. I like you. You make us laugh :)

Throne
Can I avoid the 1800 shipping if I pick it up myself? I'm down with the 30K but 1800 S&H may prove daunting.

Well
Inspired by your comment at Comic-con about passing a hat around for contributions for Blackwater CGI, I did the same during the past week for one of these. The bad news is that I didn't come close. The good news is I did have enough for a $5 footlong at Subway *hums tune*

When the Star Trek Experience closed down, they did sell off a lot of the props... nothing this expensive though!

http://twitpic.com/9upxxw $4500 for the Borg Queen and

http://twitpic.com/9upynn for a full-size shot.

I think she was sold at the point I took these, but the case was still around... wonder if it sold.

I'm pretty sure he's able to get one free, or at a very nice discount.

totally giggling at the idea of a full size flyable Enterprise, my little self would have loved that! I hope the throne they're selling is a bit more forgiving than the real one though, what with it's penchant for stabbing people and all!

I would buy one if I had the money... and an extra room for it.

OK, that's cool and all, but...isn't the Iron Throne really, really uncomfortable? I get the metaphor there, but not actually ruling any kingdoms of my own I'm not sure I'd want one of these in place of my recliner, even if it came at a decent price. Just saying.
