Game of Thrones merchandise coming to India

Ned Stark collectible figure

Rejoice, India: soon your 1.2 billion citizens will be able to buy locally licensed and developed Game of Thrones merchandise through Mumbai-based firm Black White Orange Brands (no relation to the Assassin’s Guild hall). After working for over a year to close the deal with HBO, Black White Orange CEO Bhavik Vora is hoping that the merchandise will bring in between $35 and $40 million in sales during the first two years of the exclusive deal. And unlike otherGame of Thrones-related distribution deals, this one will allow the company to develop its own set of products, as opposed to distributing previously existing merchandise sold in other countries. Vora appeared especially enthused when discussing the deal with The Economic Times.
This is a huge achievement for us. Game of Thrones fans get transported into the world of Westeros when watching the show and are eager to extend that experience into their everyday lives.
Founded less than a year ago, Black White Orange Brands has been on a bit of winning streak for such a young company, recently winning the international distribution rights for NBCUniversal’s consumer products division. The Game of Thrones deal will last for three years and is structured as a revenue sharing agreement, meaning that HBO (and parent Time Warner Inc.) will share in the profits. With the second largest population of any country on the planet, HBO should see significant revenue from the sale of apparel, actions figures, drink-ware, and other collectibles.
As Game of Thrones heads into the home stretch of the series, with only two seasons remaining, it has never been more popular. Ratings for Season 6 were the best of the series thus far, and rumors of a potential spin-off series never seem to die. And even with the series ending, there will likely remain a large demand of related merchandise well into the future.

Game of thrones season 7 episode 6 script : A Dragon dies... [ Contains Spoilers ]

Here's the script for episode 6:[ These are translations from FD(Freaky Doctor)'s videos on Youtube ] Content may or may not be 100% accurate, I’m just translating what Friki has posted. I know this episode has been translated already but given my fluency in Spanish and English I think I could add or improve on some things. I’ve translates things as Friki spoke, whether the scenes are in the correct order or not, I personally do not know. If I’ve made any mistakes please feel free to correct me.

The second to last episode is also the second longest episode of this season, clocking in at 71 mins according to IMDB

Frikidoctor tells what happens in the north first and then goes on to tell what happens in other parts of Westeros so if you see some time jumps during the north storyline there are scenes in between these I just don’t know which ones since he doesn’t mention it and I wanted to translate as he spoke but I find it better the way he did it, even though A LOT happens nort…

Friki starts his video with explaining he did a livestream for episode 7 because he is on vacation and can’t dedicate himself to edit a video while on vacation (valid reason)

We start in Kings Landing, where we are in the dragon pit where not everyone who was in the north is present. Friki says Dany will bring the unsullied and Dothraki incase that Cersei has a trap for her and places her armies outside Kings landings doors ready in case of a trap. Jamie and Bronn oversee KL’…

There’s a new heir to the Iron Throne, and nobody on ‘Game of Thrones’ noticed

Tommen has a new successor. Good luck getting anyone in King’s Landing to care, apparently. Caution! Spoilers immediately ahead for Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 2, ‘Home.’ Go watch it, it’s a really good one.  The body count in Westeros is really starting to pile up — and the return of oneresurrected Lord Commander doesn’t begin to make a dent in the numbers. In Season 6’s first two episodes, three of the Seven Kingdoms’ most powerful leaders have been usurped and unceremoniously tossed on the scrap heap: Roose Bolton (along with his wife and hours-old heir), Balon Greyjoy (last of the participants in the War of the Five Kings and the last of the leeches burned in the fire by Melisandre) and Prince Doran Martell of Dorne (that guy in the bathrobe and wheelchair). But the most important death is the one that barely got any attention: the poisoning of Princess Myrcella Baratheon, sister to King Tommen and official heir to the Iron Throne. She was the last Baratheon in Westeros — leg…
