If you haven’t yet heard, the HBO store in New York at 1100, Avenue of the Americas (Sixth) has set up a fully -themed display.
George R. R. Marin has posted a number of quality photos on Not A Blog, revealing that there is a lot to see inside the store itself as well. Apart from costumes (including the much-debated Kingsguard one), there are props exhibited, among them also central ones, such as the dragon eggs, and the Hound’s helmet. Visit GRRM’s blog for all the photos, or why not drop by the store itself, if you have the chance. For comments and some more details, read this blog post by esc_key, who has visited the store. Be careful though, as there are some off-hand spoilers for the first part of the season.
With all the excitement of these new videos, we’ve forgotten our first love — photos. Remember those days when a new photo was worth its own post and generated hundreds of comments? Yeah, those were the days.
Over the past week or so, HBO has snuck a bunch of new photos onto the web, almost under our noses. But thanks to some eagle-eyed readers we’ve been able to capture them and add them into our Image gallery. But for those who don’t check the gallery regularly (shame on you!), we have a post highlighting these new photos. Click through to view them all!
That last photo of Sansa was discovered by Knurk and through our posting it on Twitter we were pointed by @vestnix to Canal+ Spain’s Game of Thrones Facebook page which is where it originated from. Poking around on there, I found that Canal+ has recently released a number of new, never-before-seen behind-the-scenes photos, including an awesome one of the Sky Cell set!
Making Game of Thrones has revealed high resolution versions of the four promotional posters, and added a new one featuring Jon. He’s ‘the watcher on the wall’, likely to also be on the walls of many fans very soon. The promotional prints are from now on going to be collected in our new sub-gallery.
Hear Me Roar: The wording at MGoT gives me the feeling that these five (and the main one with Ned) may be the only character posters for this season. The concept is perfect, Game of Thrones Season 1 dvd though, so with the likely advent of season 2 we are surely going to see more characters on the throne.
