HBO is selling a life-size replica of Aegon's throne from "Game of Thrones" for just $30,000 (plus shipping).   (HBO Shop website)

(Newser) – The "real" Iron Throne, from George RR Martin's Game of Thrones books, was forged from 1,000 swords of Aegon the Conqueror's defeated enemies, and, being full of sharp edges, it was quite dangerous to sit on. Now HBO is offering a life-size replica of the Iron Throne, 7 feet tall and 350 pounds—and at $30,000, the biggest danger it poses is to your wallet, reports the Huffington Post. Oh, and shipping costs another $1,800. Or you could just buy some Game of Thrones coffee mugs for $14.99. (Yes, we know the series is supposed to be called A Song of Fire and Ice. Blame HBO for the name change).
