This is HBO's official $30,000 (plus $1,800 shipping) replica of the Iron Throne from the Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, it's made out of fiberglass and not real swords. BOOOOOOOOOO! *rushing castle with a pitchfork*
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.
I mean, it does looks cool and all, but they really should have made it out of real swords. Especially for that price. If I'm spending $30,000 on a chair it better be made out of things that have actually killed people. Or dragon skulls.
Hit the jump for a couple more crappy quality pics.
Thanks to LupusYonderBoy, who plans on buying one, adding wheels to the bottom, and using it as his new office chair. Yes! Bring me our competitor -- ON A STAKE.
