The Iron Throne is probably one of the most iconic elements of the popular Game of Thrones series. Therefore, I started building a Game of Thrones Iron Throne Room out of Lego bricks, a tribute to the masterpiece of the original.
Game of Thrones is a HBO series that combines scenes of beauty and brutality. It tells the story of a medieval country’s civil war. The series is set on futuristic continents of Westeros and Essos. A world, where seasons stretch on for years.
When the Game of Thrones story begins, a decade-long summer is ending, and winter looms as characters battle to claim the “Iron Throne“. The seat of the king of the Seven Kingdoms, the regime that rules all but the northern tip of Westeros. In show parlance, “sit on the Iron Throne” is a metonym equivalent to “rule Westeros.”
I designed the Game of Thrones Iron Throne Room out of Lego bricks after studying its appearances in the series. The resulting model used around 2,400 pieces, hundreds of which are just used as scaffolding for the base and can’t even be seen in the final model.
This build was my first built. The diorama is certainly the largest creation that I have worked on to date. Therefore, I had a lot of fun experimenting with various techniques to recreate the atmosphere. I think that it turned out well.
The diorama also features the Lego Kingsguard, known poetically as the White Swords. These are the royal bodyguards of the Lego Iron Throne. Along with the columns and pillars shown in this photo, the Throne Room becomes a diorama.
I hope that you enjoy! Valar morghulis
