The folks from HBO set up an impressive booth at this year’s WonderCon featuring a full-scale replica throne that is an exact match as the one that will be used in the forthcoming television series debuting Sunday, April 17, 2011.
Not only that, but fans can actually get their picture taken on the throne and subsequently uploaded those photos to Twitter or Facebook using iPads set up at the booth by the staff. It’s actually pretty cool and if I had the time I would have waited in the tremendously long line to do just that.
They also had a collection of costumes from the set that they have on display, which I’ve conveniently taken pictures of and embedded the thumbnails below for all of you who can’t be in San Francisco this weekend for the convention. Check them out here below.
Here’s some of the items on display at the booth during the Con this weekend:
– Ned Stark’s costume
– Daenerys Targaryen’s costume
– King Baratheon’s costume
– A Maester’s costume
– The Stark house shield and banner
– Full size reproduction of the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros
Also, for anyone interested, HBO has a deal going on for 20 percent off all Game of Thrones merchandise on their online shop. To redeem, just use the code: WGOT20.
