The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo hit the Windy City again this past weekend, and ASM once again had a great time!
We had no idea Valyrian Steel was going to exhibit at the show, which is odd seeing as we are huge “Game of Thrones” fans and pretty much follow everything they post on Facebook. However, our lack of foreknowledge proved to give us quite the surprise when we walked past their booth on the way to get lunch and immediately were stopped in our tracks by all the pretties.
On hand were their new Unsullied helm and Loras’ helm as well as their impressively massive helm of The Hound. They were letting folks lift and try out the Hound’s helmet, which I found to be extremely heavy, as a good replica of it would be. The helmet for Loras looked quite lovely, which suits the character.
I also got a chance to look longingly at some of the swords on display, including both the novel and TV version of Ice; Longclaw, the sword of Jon Snow; Robb Stark’s sword; and scabbards to match. In addition, the statues of Tyrion and Jon Snow with Ghost were on hand.
It’s a miracle I didn’t just hand over my credit card to them right then and there.
Pictures may not do these works of art justice, but check out the gallery just the same. Hopefully we’ll see them back at C2E2 2015.
