George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones characters Lego'ized... "A Song of Ice and Lego" - A Song of Ice and Lego

"George R. R. Martin’s fantasy masterpiece A Song of Ice and Fire has swept the nation. This week alone the fifth book in the series, A Dance with Dragons, was released to great acclaim, while the HBO drama series based on the novels, Game of Thrones, received a whopping thirteen Emmy nominations. Capitalizing on the popularity of the series, LEGO has announced they will be releasing tie-in playsets featuring the Starks, Lannisters, and other denizens of the Seven Kingdoms.

Okay, just kidding. These GoT minifigs were actually created by game designer Sam Beattie. By cannibalizing countless LEGO sets, Mr. Beattie assembled strikingly accurate likenesses of the books’ characters. Check out the images below, and click on Sam Beattie’s Flickr for even more images. In addition to ASOIAF, there is also an impressive recreation of Serenity and the cast of Firefly. MiniMal! So you better check that out too.



Having recently started reading this series (yeah, yeah, I know, I'm late to the game...) and watching the Game of Thrones series on HBO, I thought this pretty neat.

BTW, if you're a reader too, you can find me on GoodReads at See you there.
