Buy your own 'Game of Thrones' Iron Throne

Crave shows you the office chair of the century, or at least the ultimate living room conversation piece for any "Game of Thrones" fan.

Many of you out there simply can't get enough of the trials and tribulations of House Stark, Baratheon, and Lannister on "Game of Thrones," the HBO adaptation of George R.R. Martin's epic novel series. For those still hungry for more after Sunday's epic season two finale, perhaps a $30,000 replica Iron Throne could do the trick.

The official 350-pound replica Iron Throne from "Game of Thrones" costs a fortune, but according to the HBO store, the custom hand-finished, hand-painted fiberglass and fireproof resin chair gives any aspiring ruler a truly epic sitting space. The chair's materials should also save you from the cuts or nicks that would normally endanger any sitter.

While you don't live in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, your real-life minions will still look upon you with newfound respect (or disgust) after seeing this 7-foot tall masterpiece. Of course, whichever royal being orders this must cough up an $1,800 shipping fee and wait six to eight weeks for delivery like the rest of us.
