Game of Thrones stamps coming - in the United Kingdom, anyway


Hopefully, these useful stickers will tide you over as we wait for Game of Thrones' eighth and final season, because it likely won't air until 2019.

Royal Mail has unveiled a special edition stamp collection celebrating Game of Thrones. It includes some of the most popular characters, as well as scenes from Westeros and several plotlines.

While none of them have properly secured the Iron Throne yet, ten lucky Game of Thrones characters will now sit atop envelopes. Each stamp is centred on an individual character and features a montage of images from the series.

The Royal Mail (Britain's Postal Service) will unleash 15 signature stamps that honor the HBO series on January 23 - though, you can already preorder them here. Starting in the upper left, the other stamps depict the Night King and White Walkers, giants, direwolves, and dragons.

Hospitals Impose Visitor Restrictions As The Result Of Flu Season
Cough into your sleeve, wash your hands with soap and water, clean all high-touch surfaces daily and avoid touching your face. An abnormal number of cases of influenza are causing health officials to issue warnings about an above-normal flu season.

The 10 central characters shown are Sansa Stark (portrayed by Sophie Turner), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Eddard Stark (Sean Bean), Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg), Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

The latest seventh series has also featured British pop sensation Ed Sheeran, who did not make it into the Royal Mail collection. Much of the filming takes place at Titanic Studios in Belfast, at the Linen Hill Film Studio in Banbridge and on location elsewhere in Northern Ireland.

They can also be pre-ordered on the Royal Mail website.

The set of collectables is created to appeal to both stamp collectors and fans of the show, with the stamps also going into normal circulation on 23 January.
