The iconic Iron Throne will now be easier to claim for Game of Thrones fan in Manila as the life-size replica of the widely popular, iconic feature in the HBO’s Emmy and Golden Globe winning series, Game of Thrones, will be staying at the National Book Store’s Glorietta 1 outlet starting April 19 until the 28th, for the series’ fans to experience and photograph.
The 8-foot tall replica is a spectacular sight to behold. It is handcrafted from resin in the Philippines, with each sword individually detailed and put together. It took more than two months for HBO Asia to finish it.
The Iron Throne was first unveiled at the Bonifacio Global City. HBO Asia then announced on April 10 via Twitter that the iconic feature will be taken around Manila, giving more opportunities for fans to experience it.
HBO Asia’s Head of Marketing, Creative and Content, Magdalene Ew, said “The Iron Throne has been such a wildly popular feature in Manila that we were inspired to seek new opportunities for even more Game of Thrones fans across the city to experience it live. What better place than at National Book Store’s flagship store at Glorietta 1.”
New locations of the Iron Throne will be broadcast on Twitter @HBOAsia. All are encouraged to post their experiences on the Iron Throne on social media and join the conversation using hashtags #IronThronePH and #HBOAsiaGOTS5.
