Object of geek desire: the Game of Thrones toilet decal

When it comes to the phenomenally successful geek orgy that is HBO's Game of Thrones, few aspects of the show are more iconic than the titular throne itself.

Placing a replica of the so-called Iron Throne in your home is the perfect way for egotistical fans with an edifice complex and huge amount of personal savings to show their love of the series, but most of us don't have $30,000 to blow on a chair regardless of how many swords went into its forging.

This is all changing thanks to an enterprising Etsy artist who has figured out a way to bring the Iron Throne to your own personal throne room for 1/1000th of the price...


Downside: you will feel the urge to sing the Game of Thrones theme song whenever you sit on this bad boy.

Enter, the Iron Throne toilet decal. Created by Etsy artist PeelAndStickDecals, this incredibly geeky bathroom accoutrement will make you feel like the rightful ruler of the seven kingdoms whenever you feel the call of nature. The best part? You won't need the financial magic of Littlefinger to bring this decal to your home - for $30.00 you can transform your bog standard crapper into a seat worthy of Robert Baratheon's besotted keister.

While the decal may give rise to some rather delicate questions from guests who visit your bathroom, these questions are a small price to pay for the ability to transform your private moments of shame into soaring, high-fantasy epic adventures.

Ours is the fury, toilet. Ours. Is. The Fury.
