Now THAT is some alternate packaging! This baby is available exclusively through Amazon in the US, Germany, Italy, France, the UK, and Spain. Amazon describes it thusly:
In this limited edition sculpture, Daenerys’s dragon from the season 3 poster art takes center stage with its impressive wingspan and a highly detailed tail, which wraps around the core of the piece. Created in durable heavy weight material, the highly textured collectible is finished with a weathered patina evoking the feel of Westeros and a bygone era. The collectible also contains a hidden compartment which houses The Complete Third Season.
Amazon’s Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season Limited Edition will go on sale the same day as the standard editions: February 18, 2014. Head over to Amazon to pre-order it now and then be sure to clear some space on your shelf. Check that, a lot of space.
