Borders GoT mugs
Posted 01 August 2011 - 01:16 PM
I went to the dying local Borders several days ago and saw several of the GoT glass beer mugs with house sigils/mottos on them. I neglected to buy any, thinking I'd wait until they were discounted by more than 10%. (mistake!) I went back and of course they're gone now.
Haven't found or read about these particular mugs being available anywhere besides Borders, and they're not available on the Borders website. My guess is that they're out of stock at the rest of the store locations, since GRRM books and related products are generally sold out there anyway. I find these mugs preferable to the official HBO ceramic steins because, unlike the latter, you can stick the glass mugs in the freezer, and then later enjoy an ice cold beer out of your lion mug while smugly thinking "damn it feels good to be a lannister..."
Anyone know of any other place to find these things? I'm thinking a few of them may pop up on Ebay after a while, that or some other version of them may be released somewhere closer to next season, though (alas) not at Borders.

Why no love for Martell, my favorite house won't be in the show until season 3 so of course they get no cool hbo things. Even the Wall plaque on the HBO store looks horrible

Hit up all the Borders within a 20 mile radius. Zero left. If anyone finds these on ebay or wherever, please let me know.
Went to 3 more stores today. Found 12 Targaryen, 2 Baratheon, and 2 Lannister. Bought them all. The employee said they ran out of Stark the same week they got them.

There was a link to a picture of a Stark one posted in this thread:
From that thread:
I bought mine at the Penn Station/Madison Square Garden Borders Books in New York City, so if one were to find a larger Borders store, you might have some luck. I got the Targ one and will likely pick up a Stark one next for a Ice and Fire set. The Direwolf and Dragon symbols are badass. The glass is not a proper pint glass, but more accommodating to a standard 12 oz beer with some room to spare.

And on a related note, I was able to find ones that are not exactly the same but extremely similar on the HBO UK site:

Thanks Blackfyre! I was about to go crazy looking for those too

Glad I found this post, cuz I've been combing the net for a while now trying to find those too - as mentioned in the other thread I got the 4 house ones (and as far as I can tell they're identical to the HBO ones) - I skipped the just general GoT one cuz, well, I thought it was ugly. Heh. As far as I can tell, you're right - it's just the ceramic coffee cup things, no glass steins. I hope they do more, cuz the ones I have now are awesome.
