Re-seller! I saw those on Ali Baba for $14.99.
This comment made me snort and forget what I was going to write!
No. These are handmade in Bali by indigenous craftsmen. I mean one. One indigenous artist.
How much for wholesale?? Convo me.
Don’t worry, by the start of season two, there’ll be a giant chair made of barnwood and picket fence pickets titled, “OOAK SteaMPUnK Hunger G4mES Harry p0ttEr GaMe 0f thr0nEs chair authentIC Real Barnwood 60,000$”
I’m determined for April to have a Game of Thrones replica throne to sit upon, while she shows us the latest in dirty re-sellers, like some kind of medieval superhero. I’ll make it happen if I have to blow everyone at HBO. I’ll need a little female help though for those straight men. It’s the least we could do. “A Lannister FJL always pays his debts.“
Well the good news is that there are no straight men at HBO.
Then why does the show have so many boobies?
Because they’re smart enough to know that chunks of the demographic playing along at home wants to see a bit of the nip. Or a lot of the nip. Or hey, just wait until after 10pm and show the whole shebang to your heart’s content.
Allow me to explain…
(I hope that worked.)
Perfect for lording it over the FJL. Will make my increasingly desperate attempts at arse-licking a bit uncomfortable though.
I’m certain there’s a really witty ‘butthurt’ joke in here somewhere, but someone really witty will have to make it.
As Queen High Priestess of All Things Evil, one of you minions needs to buy this for me. Now. It totally goes with all of my furniture and I think it could be labeled ‘steampunk’.
So it won’t hack you to bits like the real thing?
If we sit on the Iron Throne, do we instantly become complete cunts?
And would anyone notice?
I thought we already were.
Yes unless you already were one before sitting on the throne, Joffrey
Dream of Aeron office chair has now been replaced. GAME OF CUBICLES.
When you play the game of cubicles, you win…or you end up on the party planning committee.
HBO-scammer don’t give a shit! It just takes what it wants!
(more closely resembles a porcupine, BUT THAT’S NOT IN THE MEME).
When ever I see or hear “Game of Thrones” I imagine a chess board with all kinds of chairs on it. (never saw or read any of it)
I imagine toilets. Lots and lots of toilets.
And now I do too.
Where’s the toilet paper holder? I see plenty of places to cut the tp …
I’ve still not watched the finale. I’m not ready to have nothing to watch for the next several months.
For $30k I’d expect it to be made from real swords. How else would I maim rude houseguests?
If it’s going to be an authentic replica, it better cut me every time I sit down, too.
I so want this – saw it last night. Sadly, 30,000 is out of my range. I was thinking of adding razors just to sure it cut anyone who sat in my throne. Excellent addition to my living room
diclosure: mega Game of Thrones fan and waiting impatiently for book 6
For $30k, this fucker better come with a Tetanus shot.
And a hot male nurse to give it to me.
I feel powerful just thinking about sitting in it.
My kid doesn’t really need a college fund, a therapy fund, maybe.
Making them pay for College themselves builds character. Bitter, resentful character. As does making them clean this throne.
It seems like it has a lot of places to collect dust, too.
asecondsolution, great minds … I was imagining having to Q-tip out all the cat hair.
Yeah I was originally going to say cat hair, but then I realized that maybe not everyone has 4 cats…
Also Q-tips? If you’re gonna spend $30,000 for this thing I’d invest in one of those mini vacuum hose things for cleaning computer keyboards. In fact I could probably use one of those myself, but I just use a paperclip to lever out the cat hair from my keyboard.
The sticky part of post it notes work beautifully.
Looks utterly awesome, yet uncomfortable. But perhaps that’s it’s lure.
I’m not watching it either. Waiting to finish books first. Yes, I’m behind in my pop-culture.
Holy shit, I need that. Um…who wants to help me rob a bank? We’ll get enough to buy two and we can be twinsies!
I still have my fingers crossed for a finale breakdown over on CF4L …
also, I think I just found my new beach chair.
Well, the matching Iron Beach Umbrella *is* only $7250!
Not to be a dick, well, maybe kinda to be a dick… but you’ll actually need $31,800.
April HAS the $1,800. She’s just short $30,000.
Just putting this out there… originally from this tweet:
What if the “game” in “Game of Thrones” was basketball, and the “thrones” were toilets, and it was about toilets that played basketball?
Therefore my boyfriend and I now watch Toilets Basketball. I would like to see this throne made into either a basketball hoop or a toilet. Then it would be worth the list price.
This sounds like something that would be on Cartoon Network. With HK as a sass-talking bidet?
“My dragons went to the greatest city that ever was or ever will be and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt.”
But the dragons fucked over the Warlock so you have that going for ya
My friend posted this to FB earlier today. I asked if it came with a lifetime supply of band-aids.
This is for people who ALSO love Fifty Shades of Grey. They can get their BDSM AND a place to sit all in one piece of furniture.
Never read Fifty Shades of Grey and have no interest to.
I have, however, read and rather well liked the first 4 books of the GoT series.
And it has nothing to do with whether I like BDSM or not.
Actually, reading these books (and I have read them all), is certainly an exercise in S and M–careful who you love!
I dunno, I’ve read (and own all but the last 2) John Norman’s Gor series.
SoIaF is tame compared to those.
I’m a HUGE fan of the book series and the HBO show. Since I needed a new book to read while I wait for the 6th book, my friend suggested 50 shades of Grey. I couldn’t get past the first chapter, I had to force myself. Doesn’t even come close to A Song of Ice and Fire series.
To this day it still boggles my brainholes that such an awful Twilight fanfic (not that there are many good ones, mind) got published and is now going to be a movie.
But, on the bright side, at least GRRM got an HBO show. And Iron Throne replicas sold on behalf of his epic series. Ah, now I feel a little better.
At least we’ll get to see 60 hours of Game of Thrones awesomeness, while they only ‘get’ to suffer through 10 hours of blech.
This is pretty cool, but it’d be even better if it were on casters so I could roll around the room with it.
I am going to submit this for an office supply request. There’s NO WAY they can turn me down. Do you think it comes with an ergonomical assessment?
Why do none of these people respond to my friend requests?
About the big chair – is that really something Bronc is going to want to sit on after cycling for 300 miles?
I’m not sure I’d sit on it after a trip down the hall. Metals splinters are a bitch anywhere, so I don’t like the thought of a tiny iron spear in my ass.
I’ve read it’s not as comfortable as it looks (I know, I know, that seems highly impossible but hey, I’m going to have to take the former king’s word for it). That’s why you’ll also need a custom Regretsy ass pillow, to soothe and cushion on those long days of listening to the simpletons and the snobs alike complain about Game of Thrones and related things.
I don’t know anything about ‘Game of Thrones’, but I misread ‘Shop the HBO UK’ as ‘Shop Drunk’. Perfect, all of us fat, jealous losers do that, right?
Just gonna leave this here: http://geeks.thedailywh.at/2012/06/05/supercut-of-the-day-2/
Maybe Tyrion and I can share the throne?
I’d happily sit at his feet!
Unfortunately, I’m going to need $60,000.
Because the husband simply won’t be happy sitting at my feet, so he’ll need his own.
All that attention at the end of the description about the chair’s “impressive size” makes me think someone’s compensating for something.
Possibly something that was maimed as a result of sitting in a chair made out of swords.
I read the impressive size, but read the measurements as inches at first rather than feet, and thought, “well, that’s not that impressive!”
You are NOT in charge of the Stonehenge model for our concert!
Holy shit, that was the first thing I thought of too.
I think you’ll need to borrow Bronc’s butt balm if you sit on that for too long! Does it come with a joffrey douche-face mask, or a Cersei bitch-face mask?
A sack of lemons, to achieve either look.
I was expecting “local pickup only” but I suppose $1800 probably isnt that much to ship a 12 ton razor sharp chair.
I think I have a problem, I looked at the price and thought, “that’s expensive, but if I had the money I’d get it” then, and this is the odd part, I looked at the shipping and thought to myself, “WHAT THE FUCK?! There is no way in hell I would by that shit!”
I was all like, “$30k? Whatevs… $1800, are you shitting me?”
I feel sorry for the workmen who’d have to carry this heavy thing up stairs!
Imagine getting a sofa up a narrow stairwell, only ten times heavier and pointier.
I’d like that in my living room, except for the 30 grand, and it weighs 350 pounds, so you could never move it unless you kept it on plastic sliders?
How many ways could one rearrange a throne made of swords in their living room? “Honey, move the big pointy chair closer to the window, I can’t see the TV.”
I’ve actually sat on this at the British Sci Fi & Fantasy convention (yes, geek, I know!) and it’s surprisingly comfy! Feels as though it is made of plastic and it would make an AWESOME garden chair.
Apropos of nothing and not Game of Thrones related, but is there anyone on earth that is in a SIMPLE relationship? They’re all complicated.
Sorry. The facebook post part made me think of that.
I’m not in any relationship, it’s that simple.
Yes. I am in a simple relationship. Married, monogamous. It’s the exes and the extended family that complicate stuff.
Only if it comes with a holographic Joffrey that I can kill. Repeatedly.
“But only the true King of England could pull the sword from the throne, and so he named it ‘ASSCALIBUR’!”
I’m now bummed I’m sensitive to fiberglass. D: Barnwood knockoff for me!
After getting poked by that a few times you’ll wish they carried Nerf swords.
Ooooooo! Pillow made of Nerf swords! Cool!
Too rich for my blood. How much for the Porcelain Throne?
Perfect for the nursery!
I actually loled at Dany’s like. Its the exclamation point that makes it.
Just would give a guy another excuse to use a bad pick up line
‘Hey baby, why don’t we go back to my place. I have a sword you can sit on…’
Hmmm, I wonder much it would be to just get the thousand swords and hire a blacksmith to hammer them for 59 days? Hey, you’d save the shipping cost. Buy local!
have you bought a sword lately? not cheap. :/
But how will I know if it’ll go with my room color?! Sunrise Meadow doesn’t mesh with just any old thing!
For $30,000, I want a padded seat, needlepoint pillows and a matching throw!
Give it a couple of weeks and the Chinese will be making knock offs, and the shipping from China will even be cheaper!
And the Iron Throne will become the Lead Throne. Yummy.
You should post this in a thread in the iWant section of the forum. Especially because that would look totes cool if you were sitting in it and you had say… Some ball pythons in your lap.
PS: You know nothing Jon Snow!
Love it.. want it.
Wait.. George Takei? Is he a FJL!? Because that would be amazing.
Some more Game of Thrones fun;
This is my new favorite thing!
I wish I could “like” this entire status.
