HBO Asia’s Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne on display at National Book Store Glorietta
April 18, 2015
Last April 8, the Iron Throne was unveiled at Fully Booked, Bonifacio High Street. Starting tomorrow, April 19 you can take photographs and experience to sit the life-size replica from the HBO’s Emmy and Golden Globe winning Game of Thrones series. It will be on display at National Book Store’s Glorietta 1 outlet from April 19 to 28.
The 8ft tall Iron Throne is a spectacular sight to behold. Handcrafted from resin in the Philippines, with each sword individually moulded and put together, the magnificent structure took HBO Asia more than two months to produce.
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.
Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, HBO’s Game of Thrones series tells an epic story of treachery and nobility set on the continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years, and only the lust for power is eternal.
The new season of Game of Thrones, currently on HBO, airs same time as the U.S. – Mondays at 9am, with a same day primetime encore at 9pm. Viewers can also watch the series on HBO GO anytime anywhere and across multiple mobile devices.
