HBO’s Game of Thrones: Alchemist Edition
Mysterious packages have been arriving on the doorsteps of various internet luminaries as part of HBO‘s opening salvo in their soon-to-be torrential marketing campaign for the upcoming Game of Thrones television AWESOMENESS. If these precisely-crafted, metal-bound chests are any indication of the quality we can expect from the show, we are in for a treat. I, personally, have been chomping at the bit for this show to be released and cannot wait to see what else the ingenious PR minds behind this box of treasures will come up with next. For a video and pictures of all the lovingly crafted goodness, just click through the jump.
Now, this little gorilla marketing gem came to my attention via Violet Blue’s twitter* and she did a detailed breakdown of all the goodies.
She also provides a detailed description and scads of hi-def photos of every last cool little bit.
