Pop Culture House Sigils Inspired by “Game of Thrones”

Game of Thrones has been showered with much praise and attention. Fans have remixed the opening theme tune, re-created the characters out of LEGO, and even compiled a video of only just the naughty bits.

The house sigils have been of particular interest as well, from the minimalist to the seriously cute. They are the inspiration for a new set of posters, this time if popular characters from comics books, TV, and film were part of the noble houses of Westeros.

You may have heard the chiptune remix of the Game of Thrones opening theme and wondered what the game would be like. College Humor takes a stab at it.

Complete with elements from typical dungeon crawlers, this hilarious animation tells the happenings in season/book one of the excellent Game of Thrones, as if it were a 16-bit role-playing game.

Minimalist Game of Thrones House Sigils

From the boost in book sales to a highly successful TV series to all love and adoration from the Internet, there is certainly a lot of banter about Game of Thrones. Speaking about banners — OK, you got me, I said banter but what’s a little letter substitution amongst friends? — designer Tom Gateley shows appreciation for the series by creating a beautiful set of minimalist posters.

After watching the TV series, Gateley says he became slightly obsessed with the identity the houses and set about creating vector posters of each house sigil. He hopes we like them as much as he does. Have a look at his minimalist Game of Thrones posters after the jump.

Epic “Game of Thrones” Cover Mashup

Fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones will have to wait until April 2012 to return to the Seven Kingdoms. To stave off the withdrawal symptoms, several people have taken to making creative covers of the series’ opening theme song composed by Ramin Djawadi.

You may remember Roger Lima as he banged out a rock cover on his guitars and drum kit. You may also recall Jason Yang, who used an acoustic and electric violin, and layered the 13 different tracks to create the most delightful cover I’ve heard. These two versions are wonderful on their own but in his mashup, Youtube user paolody wanted to find out what it would sound like if Lima and Yang collaborated on a truly epic Game of Thrones cover. Are the results doubly awesome? Find out below.

A Song of Ice and Fire and LEGO

George R. R. Martin has certainly made an impression on people. Book sales are up and the first in the series of epic fantasy novels, Game of Thrones, will see a comic book adaptation in September. The highly successful TV show concluded its first season and viewers can expect to return to the seven kingdoms in April 2012. The Internet has been busy churning out remixes of the Game of Thrones opening theme and I wouldn’t be surprised if LEGO don’t take advantage of critical success of Game of Thrones by creating a set of commemorative characters. The haven’t done it as yet but Sam Beattie has taken a stab at it.

The game designer from Boston, USA, has cannibalised bits and bobs from existing sets to create LEGO versions of the characters. From House Stark to the scheming High Council to the murderous Clegane Brothers, the likenesses are surprisingly good. See his Game of Thrones LEGO minifigs after the jump.
