'Game of Thrones' Fan

I Won A $30K Iron Throne

And It Won't Fit In My NJ Apartment

EXCLUSIVE

0624_game_of_thrones_iron_throne_winner_photos_launchA man's home is his castle ... unless it's a dude who lives in a shoe box of an apartment in New Jersey that's too small for his life-size replica of the "Game of Thrones" throne.

Mike Ross tells TMZ ... he won a reproduction of the Iron Throne in an HBO fan contest ... it was just delivered to his Hoboken apt. Problem is ... it's 7'2" tall and 350 lbs -- and it doesn't fit.

For now ... he's sticking it in an even less regal setting -- his parents' garage.

It's an awesome chair ... a $30K hand painted fiberglass knockoff made to look like it was constructed with swords ... just like the one crafted by Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of the Seven Kingdoms.

Mike says he loves it ... but is open to offers from other GoT fans.

He wants to use the money ... for a down payment on a bigger place.

$30,000 for a fiberglass knockoff???? Talk about over inflating the value of a "prize".

The amount of hate and/or jealously is amazing. If he won it, he won it. If he sells it, then even better as he can get a better place.
Whats the wrong here?

I would want the throne that George Martin imagined, not this tiny peice of crap. The author has already said the show got it wrong, the IT is supposed to be so big it has a staircase and way more grotesque. It's supposed to be 1000 swords, not 100. Douchebag fans can have the show, it jumped the shark with a 2 eyed Bloodraven.

Sure hope that drawing was for charity...cuz....wow. It actually takes a lot of time, effort, and skill to wind up with a fiberglass molding like this one. What is mind boggling to me is that it has no art to it at all. The world is filled with skilled artists, most starving, who could have easily rocked that vision.
