/// Game of Thrones Takes Over HBO’s Manhattan Storefront

December 12, 2012  |  Media Week

Christmakwanzakah comes once a year, but direwolf bookends are forever. And if you're a Game of Thrones fanatic, that piece of swag may be a must-have. HBO, like most entertainment companies, hopes to spark an end-of-the-year buying frenzy for its licensed merchandise. Broad swords make fantastic stocking stuffers! In the case of the hugely popular (but not currently airing) drama Game of Thrones , HBO is drawing attention to the period piece with a product-heavy window display at its flagship Manhattan store. Against an LED screen of the show's forbidding White Wall, fans can ogle a Daenerys Targaryen sculpted bust (with baby dragon, without boobies), a paperweight shaped like the series' namesake kingly chair, and vinyl bobbleheads that look considerably less threatening than the TV characters. For those still mourning the death of Khal Drogo, there's a signature mug from whence to drink some mead (or fancy coffee when no one's looking). Until season 3 launches in March, this stuff is all fans have to keep them warm. (See: House Stark fleece throw.) That, and this recently released teaser video, which shows filming locations in Ireland, Morocco and Iceland.
