Take a look at the image above from retailer Thinkgeek, and consider the company’s love of joking around, and you’d think it’s a hoax. Especially when you look at its $US30,000 price tag.
But no, the production images (and $US1800 postage) suggest this replace Game of Thrones…throne is an actual thing, which takes 6-8 weeks to build, is hand-finished (though mostly carved by a robot) and painted, is 7’2″ tall and weighs 350 pounds.
It also looks pretty gross, the way the smoothed bottom section looks inflatable, but if you’re the kind of person to thrown down $US30k on a replica fantasy series’ throne, you’re probably not the kind to be too concerned over the fine details of your home furnishings.
