You are right Sable.  Buy lottery tickets and then if you win the big one you will have enough money to back a film in which Sean stars.  You have a much better chance getting his autograph that way.

I just about died when I finally had a chance to watch “Game of Thrones”. I could not believe how good it was. I can’t afford HBO so I had to wait until it became available on DVD. It was worth the wait. Sean played such a noble and sympathetic character, that audiences really bonded with Ned Stark right away. That’s why so many people were devastated when they discovered Ned’s ultimate fate. I think Ned Stark is going to go down as one of Sean’s great iconic roles, right up there with Boromir.

It's not a British production, so that might have something to do with it.

I still think that Sean could play another character in GOT if not Ned than someone else. Most people are not aware of him, even
though they see Sean in movie after movie they still don't recognise him. I know that he's a great actor and can create different
people that would look and sound like another person other than Ned. So why not let him be someone else???? If GOT is 7 books
long there must be another character that he could bring to life?????  :slyfox

Season 1 Game of THrones trading cards

Quote
In total, the 2012 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Autographs checklist has 51 cards. Two of them (Sean Bean and Peter Dinklage) are case incentives. Although Rittenhouse did say that some of these cards would be available in boxes, they are intended to encourage and reward bulk sales. Dealers were given one Sean Bean autograph for every three cases. Dinklage is much more limited as a six-case incentive.....
Besides the Peter Dinklage and Sean Bean autographs, the cards to watch are Emilia Clarke, Michelle Fairley, Kit Harington and Lena Headey. All four have just one autograph card and are major characters in the show. Their signatures were already reaching three figures during pre-sales

Interesting signature change. He's not even trying to spell out his name anymore.  Just initials.

Maybe he'll eventually do a Prince and change his name to that Blades crossed sword squiggle he used to use below his signature . . .

Quote
HBO has pulled the finale to Game of Thrones season one from On Demand and HBO Go, as well as ceased production on season one DVDs and Blu-rays in the wake of the Bush-head-on-a-spike “scandal”.

Do we have to be so politically correct?  Can't anyone take a joke anymore.  Lighten up out there.

It doesn't look like Sean, but it's cute.   :mutley:

I wonder why it says for ages 17+?  I see that it has small parts that could pose a choking hazard, but those toys are usually labeled for children , 3, 4 or 5 years and up.  Is there something else about it that would make it suitable only for people 17 or older?

Sharp pointy sword?  The head comes off?  He's got body parts under that tunic?  The makers are concerned that the Ned doll will be too attracted to anyone younger than 17, given Sean's increasingly young wives?

I thought about the the figurine having naughty bits under the tunic, but didn't think of them being fully functional until you mentioned it, Blue Jay.  Maybe someone here will buy one and let us know.

I lke your theory about the young wives too, lighty!
