BlinkBox, a British video on demand service, has commissioned a terrifying-looking dragon skull as part of a new Game of Thrones promotional. The massive skull is on display on the "Jurassic Coast" in Dorset, England, a popular beach for fossil enthusiasts.

Are you ready for Season 4 and the return of dragons next year?

Check out a behind the scenes video of the skull's creation, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. How cool is that? What a blast. It amazes me that that tired old island, England, still has so much creative human energy in it. The world still lies in it's long wake in so many ways.

  2. Wow. Nice work. Funny how children play around it, get inside it, yet adults stare at it from the distance.

  3. Just waiting for the young earth Creationists who believe dragons existed in the middle ages (and were just leftover dinosaurs) to be trolled by this. :)

    & any stanis fans that haven't realized that G.R.R. Martin is leading to daenerys with dragons at least if not also in conjunction with the prince who was promised = JS! will unite the kingdom , battle the white walkers, and claim the throne in the end are just being naive

  7. Well....Ted and guys are missing out. It is without a doubt the best thing on television.

  8. Not fair. This is Hollywood! We want one on our L.A. beaches!

    I don't think Game of Thrones is the best thing on television, but it's an enormously fun and very good show.

  9. @Moz's - I've been saying this as well. I think Jon Snow is the bastard child not of Ned Snow, but of Ned's sister and the Targaryan prince (and therefore actual heir to the throne before Danaerys). And those two are totes gonna hook up and stuff.

  11. Wait for the wing nuts to blame the extinction of dragons on gay marriage.

  12. The wingnuts will say the gay gene caused the extinction of dinosaurs because, well just look, they're not around anymore. Now it's doing the same to everyone else and gay marriage is the proof.

    Voila: the perfect reasoning of infallible assertion proves it. And proof is all you need.

    Beware of Bran. While the evidence does point towards Jon being the lovechild of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, you have to ask yourself, how big is the jump from warging a human to warging a giant firebreathing death machine. I'd imagine that being a dragonrider becomes extremely unpleasant when the dragon suddenly doesn't want to be ridden. ;-)

  14. Definitely cool, but the bones should be black per the books...

    ah, but can a warg warg into a magical creature? dragons being magical might be an issue fro Bran

    + Jon has a bit of the warg blood/ ability with his interactions with his dire wolf snow so even if bran can warg into a dragon then jon might be able to over ride such with warging + inherent targaryan/ old valaryan dragon control

    and as far as Daenerys goes....her inherent targaryan dragon control might not be enough BUT her dragons are different in that she is their mother/ mother bond as vs any other targaryan controlling a dragon. A mother's bond might be stronger than a wargs ability
