TAKE THE THRONE
Here’s a few ways to acquire your very own Iron Throne, including a gigantic life size version that would make anyone who walked into your home soil themselves. Of course, the price tag alone would have the same effect on you, and very few of us will ever have the coin to obtain such a monster—despite how many limbs and organs we’d be willing to pawn off to black market buyers—as you’ll see when you click over to check out the price.
I estimated $1,500 to $2,000 when I first heard of this life size Iron Throne. Let’s just say the folks selling it would likely laugh hysterically and then punch me in the face a number of times for thinking it to be so cheap.
* 7-Inch Iron Throne Replica
