Hopefully, This Enormous Beached Dragon Skull Has Something to Do With Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones dragon skull beach Blinkbox

Oh man this is real HOORAY THIS LIFE.

This morning intrepid beach-goers in Dorset discovered a 40 foot long dragon skull seemingly washed up onto the shore. So either this has something to do with Game of Thrones or our world has changed forever.

The skull turns out to be a marketing event for Blinkbox, a UK streaming video service that is offering Game of Thrones season 3 soon. According to their site the skull, situated on Charmouth beach on Dorset’s Jurassic coast, took “a team of three sculptors took over two months to design, construct and paint.” Not mentioned is how awesome it is that things like this are happening in real life.

The inspiration for creating the skull came from a scene in A Game of Thrones where Arya stumbles upon the massive skulls of dragons long gone. More info and pictures can be found on Blinkbox’s blog.

Perhaps the little girl in the above picture is creating King’s Landing? We can only speculate. And wish we were in the UK so we could climb on the dragon.


Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com and can be found washed up on beaches after Margarita Mondays at Tiki Tom’s.

“a team of three sculptors took over two months to design, construct and paint.”

It's unfortunate they neglected to actually read the books. Dragon bones are black.

It's a government cover-up. That's actually a real dragon. His name was Fred, and we never mentioned him to non-Britons in case they tried to tempt him away. It wasn't the RAF during the Battle of Britain, it was him.

We all miss him, but he's gone to a better place now.

That is amazing! I hope they made it out of really sturdy stuff so that it can be left there forever!
