iron throne

iron throne made from toys

You know what Westeros? Keep your Iron Throne with thousands of pointy swords; I’d rather have this striking version made from toys. The creative folks at Happy Garaje are huge fans of Game of Thrones and were inspired by the series to create their own version of the monstrous chair. Instead of using weapons, they forged the seat from toy soldiers, teddy bears, action figures, toy cars, LEGO bricks, and more. You can see them take shape as you get closer and closer to the throne, and it’s stunning.

cardboard iron throne

Forget turning to bloody wars and deadly battles to win the Iron Throne of Westeros – just use a cardboard version to make any chair the most important one in all of the land! NOW TV and The Telegraph made the faux “throne of swords” pictured above, and it can be attached to any seat you wish with minimal effort. They hosted a giveaway to bequeath the throne upon one lucky person.

Sadly, that means you can’t buy one. If you wanted to acquire the fake throne in true Game of Thrones fashion, you’d find the winner and steal it, but it might be easier to buy some cardboard and get to work on your own.

Your garden will surely be safe with this little guy standing guard.

This is Ned Bark, Lord of the North of Grassteros. He sits on the Throne of a Thousand Shovels in King’s Lawnding to do is Kings will. The gnome realm is in disarray and with the threat of the zombies from Cannibal Rock we can only hope Ned is ready for what’s to come. This is the Game of Gnomes.

He’s made of a proprietary cement, hand casted, hand painted, and then sealed in outdoor weather sealer to protect the paint. Spring is coming and with this guy, your garden will be ready for anything.

According to lore, the Iron Throne was made up of all the swords that were surrendered to Aeryn Targaryen. According to the above picture, Gandalf was among the conquered. You can see what appears to be his sword tucked behind Joffrey’s head. There’s really no explanation for this, but we haven’t seen Peter Jackson’s third Hobbit film. Who knows what he’s got up his sleeve?

Then again, the prop makers behind the throne probably used whatever they could get their hands on—which means other famous swords might be lurking in the chair. Happy hunting.

parks and rec iron throne

Though I’ve never seen Parks and Recreation, I can appreciate any show with characters who like Game of Thrones. In this deleted scene from the episode “Anniversaries,” Leslie gives Ben a replica of the Iron Throne (you can buy one too) and he freaks out. His reaction is priceless and absolutely the way any fan would react when receiving such an epic gift. I’m kinda in love with his character now.

This snow throne was built by Katie Scott as a very icy version of the Iron Throne. There aren’t any swords, but there are some wicked looking icicles instead. She said it took her three hours to make and it looks fantastic, but redditor horyo thought it need a little something special to make it complete.

Ned Stark isn’t looking at all happy about his new Iron Throne. It might be that it’s made of nothing but balloons, but you’ve got to figure it’d be more comfortable than the crazy iron version. It took 16 hours to build the balloon Iron Throne even though it would take about 16 seconds to utterly destroy.

Real Iron Throne

Thanks to HBO’s Game of Thrones, most of us can instantly conjure an image of the Iron Throne in our heads. While George R.R. Martin respects the iconic design they’ve created, it doesn’t fit the throne he pictured in his head. In fact, until recently, no artistic version has completely captured it. It’s supposed to be gigantic, twisted, and uncomfortable. To give you an idea of scale, Martin states the throne room used in the TV series wouldn’t be big enough to hold the monstrosity.

Talented artist Marc Simonetti managed to pretty much nail it in a piece he did for The World of Ice and Fire (the history book). It damn near gives me goosebumps. Could you imagine approaching this in real life? Or having to climb up the narrow steps and rule from it? Martin states the following on his blog:

From now on, THIS will be the reference I give to every other artist tackling a throne room scene. This Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Assymetric. It’s a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes… a symbol of conquest… it has the steps I describe, and the height. From on top, the king dominates the throne room. And there are thousands of swords in it, not just a few.

This Iron Throne is scary. And not at all a comfortable seat, just as Aegon intended.

Uncomfortable is an understatement.
