Stash Saturday: My Game Thrones Merchandise Collection – Books and DVDs (Part 1)

Being a fangirl is such a costly business. I mean, seriously. I’ve been a fan of one too many things for years, but this is probably the first time I’ve splurged on something that got me truly hooked. It probably helps that I can now buy whatever I want and no longer a poor teenager who had to beg my parents for fangirl funds. Haha! Not that I asked my parents to pay for my obsession back then. No. Not even once. I just had more control and self-discipline before… which was a way better situation, I guess.

Anyway, here are some GoT-related goodies I currently own:

Of course, I have this. My sister got a bit surprised that I bought them in set since the entire series isn't even complete yet. Oh well. I'm still thinking if I should also get the HBO version. You know, as part of my collection.

This is a collection of maps from Westeros and beyond the Narrow Seas. I haven't fully opened this one because I don't have anywhere to put the maps yet. My walls are still fully occupied. lol. For anyone interested, these are just what it says  maps. While they're very detailed, do not expect any text to go with them. But you'll see details on some of the characters' journey, so it's a bit spoiler-y if you haven't read the books.

This is my most favorite out of all the GoT books I have. It's a beautiful coffee table book that's perfect for hardcore GoT fans like myself. Haha. It has interviews, details on costuming (!), behind-the-scenes photos, and two of the fake scripts D&D handed out to Kit and Alfie as a prank. Haha. The text was written by Bryan Cogman, who's one of the show's episode writers and story editor.

I didn't know there was a collector's edition when I ordered this one, so I was pretty disappointed like some of the people from WiC.net. I might sell this copy and get the collector's edition since it's currently on sale. I don't know. I hope they sell the storyboards and the scrolled maps separately soon.

They're releasing another edition for the third and fourth seasons, which will be penned by Cat Taylor of Making of Game of Thrones. I'm definitely getting a copy!
 Definitely my favorite page. Haha! <3

I contemplated a lot before purchasing this one because it's a bit pricey, but alas! I still gave in to my cravings. Haha. It's a really well-made pop-up book with descriptions on each of the seats. I don't know if I just got a dodgy copy, but I can't seem to make The Eyrie pop properly. Haha. Lady Lysa is still giving me headaches. But overall, I still like it.
 The Wall
Beyond the Narrow Seas
This is my favorite page. :)

This was way larger than I expected. I thought it'll only be as big as a magazine and all the posters would be folded. Thankfully, they're huge and not made of thin paper. They're cardboard, so they're pretty sturdy. Plus, the photos are glossy and really beautifully printed. The posters were printed back-to-back though, so if you want to hang one on your wall, you'll end up covering the other side. I suggest you just leave it as it is - a nice book of posters.
The First Poster
I absolutely love those sigil details on the back cover.

Game of Thrones Season 1 and Season 2 DVDs 
I don't have a Blu-ray player at home, so I just bought the DVDs instead. I haven't ordered the third and fourth season DVDs yet. Soon. :)

I’ve also recently ordered “A Feast of Ice and Fire,” which is an official cookbook inspired by the books (even though I can't cook to save my life) and the three "Game of Thrones Graphic Novels.” But since I live on the other side of the world, it’ll take some time before they arrive at my doorstep. 

George RR Martin is about to release “The World of Ice and Fire” in October, so I have some saving up to do. And of course, I’m also waiting for the sixth ASOIAF book, “The Winds of Winter.” Only, like everyone else, I don’t know when I’ll get my hands on it. Soon, I hope.

For the second part of this post, I’ll share some of the collectibles I bought like figurines, T-shirts, and some Etsy stuff. I don't have them yet. They're still in transit. Haha!
