Game of Thrones - Updated Info, Artwork, and More for 'The Complete 3rd Season'
Back in late June we passed along word from HBO that Game of Thrones - The Complete 3rd Season is coming to DVD and a Blu-ray/DVD Combo set on February 18, 2014. We even had a small look at the DVD box art at the time. Now Amazon's pre-order listings have been updated with high-res looks at the cover art for both versions of this title.
The Blu-ray/DVD Combo (which also offers a Digital version of each episode as well) adds the blurb along the top that the set "Includes an in-depth look at Episode 9, 'The Rains of Castamere,' Exclusive Histories, and much more."
Amazon has also added a listing for a release, on the same date, of their exclusive Game of Thrones - The Complete 3rd Season: Limited Edition (Blu-ray/DVD Combo set), priced at $129.99 SRP. Further down you'll see an artist's rendition of the statue-style packaging that is in-the-works for this item. And, if you haven't gotten the first two seasons of the show just yet, then Amazon's got a tempting offer for a November 5th release of Game of Thrones - Seasons 1 and 2 (with 3 Exclusive Funko Pop Vinyls): priced at $134.99 SRP, these Blu-ray/DVD Combo sets comes with " three Amazon-exclusive Funko Pop Vinyls of major characters Khal Drogo, Daenerys Targaryen, and her dragon Rhaegal." Image art for that is at the bottom, and this Amazon button link can be used for any of these items:
