'Game of Thrones' fans can now buy a 6ft fire-breathing dragon to guard their homes
If you're a huge Game of Thrones fan, you wear a "Mother of Cats" T-shirt, drink goblets of GoT wine and named your daughter after Daenerys, which is pretty awkward now, since she killed a million people in King's Landing. It's kind of like naming your child after Pol Pot, Joseph Stalin or Adolf Hitler. Better change her name to Arya, Sansa or Brienne, quick!
Watch the dragon in action
Despite Dany's controversial decision to slaughter a city full of innocent people, there's something we can all agree on: Dragons are awesome. Wouldn't it be fun to have your own dragon, fly it majestically over the countryside, and use the fire to scorch glasses and mustaches on the Mt. Rushmore faces? Unfortunately, that will never happen, but a metalwork workshop in Wrocław, Poland offers the next best thing.
Thomas Grabarczyk and Piter Mojka of Rextorn Metalwork created incredible six foot fall dragon statues that actually breathe fire. They're perfect for barbecues, roasting marshmallows and scaring the hell out of visitors. You could line up two of them by your home to decorate gutters and stand guard like gargoyles. Sadly, the statues don't breath fire when you say "Dracarys," but who knows? Maybe Thomas and Piter could make it happen!
Previously the duo created a replica of Dany's dragon egg that went viral. After noticing their impressive work, HBO selected Rextorn Metalwork to design artifacts in celebration of Game of Thrones' final season. Thomas and Piter went on to create a replica of Jaime Lannister's golden hand out of brass, which reportedly took more than three weeks to make. The golden hand was featured at the season eight premiere in New York City.
Since their projects are made for individual order, it is not known how much these statues cost. However, I assume they're not cheap, since they took five months and eleven days to bring to life, according to the company's Facebook page. Better start saving your gold dragons and silver stags, or take out a loan from the Iron Bank of Braavos.
