It doesn’t seem that long ago since a certain Mr. Martin set the world’s axis on a tizzy. And gave the entire first world a whole new set of needs to add to the hierarchy of Maslow’s theory. That’s right, winter has arrived and it looks like it’s here to stay for a long long time much to the relief of the fans of Game of Thrones. who pledge allegiance and continue to forgive the confusing subplots and willingly sink deeper into the myriad of sex, betrayal, deceptions and into our newly discovered love for dwarves.

Of course, there will always be a smug chasm between the TV show fans and the book lovers but when it comes to stocking up on memorabilia of their favourite GoT characters, the ‘twain will meet .

Here are a few Game of Thrones collectibles (other than autographs and bobble heads) that will give you the most bang for your buck. Pay attention! because you don’t want to spend another dollar on more Obi-Wans which are now collecting dust in the attic (yes, you!).

  • Winterfell replica: This one comes with a hefty price tag, but the attention to detail on all the intricate pieces, is just amazing, Be warned! they are making only a limited number of these, so it will become a true collector’s item.
  • First edition books: To all the avid reading fans out there, Thank you for reading since 1996 and continuing in this noble act and making this a TV series reality. So if you own the first edition print books, lock it up in a safe for a few years, and then you can sell it and retire early.
  • The swords: Be it the magnificent Ice, Longclaw or the Oath keeper, just owning a replica of any one of these beauties will make you fell less of a loser and add a spring in your step. The cheap knockoffs from China aren’t that expensive either. The more expensive ones, made of Damascus steel could be worth a few Benjamins someday.
