This was one of those boxes where everyone gathered around to see what was inside while we initially unboxed all of the items. There were a lot of items to dig through, too – it was a Game Of Thrones fan’s dream!

Game of Thrones Shirt

Each edition includes this exclusive shirt. The shirt shows off house sigils and their territory on the Westeros map – I’m liking this design!

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0011

It has the Game of Thrones logo on the reverse side as well.

Kings Landing Map Flag

This item is a 35 x 23.5 inch flag – it’s large and printed on high-quality silk fabric.

This is really made for the true fan of the books/show – it’s a blast to look around at everything in King’s Landing – and even more fun to see the map visualized.

A Game Of Thrones: A Song of Fire and Ice Limited Edition

This is a collectible 20th anniversary illustrated edition of the book that started it all. It is absolutely stunning.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0030

It’s bound in an eco-trim fiber- it’s nice and soft to the touch while still remaining nice to hold with the increased weight of the book.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0035

It’s got beautiful gilded edge pages as well – definitely the nicest book I’ve ever owned.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0031

Everything about this book feels special. The illustrations really pop and bring it to life – it kind of ties it together with the show as well – I think I’ll re-read this!

Game of Thrones Sigil Light Set – Value $19 on Amazon

The next item is a sigil light set.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0037

It includes 5 house sigils, each with two lights. These are plastic sigils – I think it’s sturdy enough for indoor/outdoor use.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0038

The sigils light up nicely!

Shire Mint Post: The Dead Man Set

These coins are previously unreleased by Shire Mint Post.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0013

These are hand-made coins. It’s not the first time I’ve received Shire Mint Post in a box, but I’m always intrigued by the coins.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0016

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0015

They’re so beautifully crafted – these are great for collectors and super fans.

Jon Snow & Daenerys Targaryen Minis

These are exclusive little mini figures.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0018

These pewter figures are made by Dark Sword Miniatures.

They stand 1.5 inches tall and are paintable.

George R.R. Martin Sticker

It includes a 4-inch caricature sticker of George R.R. Martin himself. The background of the sticker is actually transparent and not white.

Order of Maesters Ruled Journal

This is an exclusive journal for the box. It’s 8.5 x 5.5 and is high-quality.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0028

It’s got a faux leather hard case.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0027

Like most of these journals, it’s got an inner pocket as well!

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0026

Nothing special on the pages themselves – just a normal ruled journal.

Game of Thrones Card Game + Daenerys Card – Value $32 on Amazon + Exclusive Card

The next item is a 2-4 player card game.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0040

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0041

It’s got a lot going on! This also includes an exclusive card made for this box.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0042

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0043

The artwork is beautiful on the cards – I love the visual style.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0044

Robert Baratheon’s Will

The next exclusive item is a reproduction of Robert’s will.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0045

This will is the real lynchpin of the series – so it’s neat to see it reproduced like this.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0046

It has the Baratheon House Sigil wax seal as well.

george-r-r-martin-grrm-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0048

Online Dothraki Course – Value $30

Learn Dothraki! It’s pretty cool how in-depth the series and books are. I love that a full language was created, enough to have a course to learn it, just for the series.

Verdict: I was like a kid in a candy store when unboxing this. The value is really going to be up to you, a lot of the items are totally exclusive to the box – including the unbelievable book! This edition was $200 dollars, but there’s also a smaller $75 version, which might be more reasonable if you’re looking to gift the Game of Thrones fan this holiday season – the details of what’s included in each edition is on their page!

What do you think of the George R.R. Martin Limited Edition box?

  1. Oh how I wish I had ordered this now! It didn’t look that amazing on the email I received about it from the GOT fan site. That book alone would be worth 200 to me though. It’s absolutely beautiful!

    • This edition is still available!

  2. Wow, this is quite a treasure trove for the GoT fan! I like the series a lot, but not enough to spend that much on a box. However, if I was one of those super mega fans, I’d for sure get this box. So many neat goodies like the card game and the will. I appreciate how the illustrations and figurines don’t necessarily look like the actors in the series, making this a separate world from just the TV show. My favorite thing is the string of sigil lights, which looks great unlit as well as lit. That would look perfect strung up above a home bar or basement pool table room. Very nice!

  3. I ordered this edition, and I was excited to begin with, but now even more so! I can’t believe how gorgeous that book is, along with everything else! Thanks for your reviews, guys. They’re always so great and so reliable. The only reason I’m subscribed to any boxes is because I always check here first, and I have yet to be disappointed. Can’t wait to get my box! =D

    • Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
