Major Game of Thrones spoiler warning! Just in case you somehow still don’t know about this…which is really kind of amazing at this point.
None of us can say we didn’t see this coming, but damn if it isn’t still way too soon.
Following the saddest moment in Game of Thrones history, folks started placing pictures of Hodor next to elevator buttons and on door wedges, but this latest “Hold the door” inspired stopper recreates that heartbreaking moment with a lot more specificity.
This Kickstarter from Tony Wang is looking to make a detailed, six inch Hodor-door holder that is crafted around the actual scene, with the lovable single-word speaking character putting his arm and back up against the door (forever fighting against the charging wights). They’ve already printed some prototypes but are looking into the possibility of making a mold and casting them instead of using a 3D printer to produce them.
They are currently trying to get a licensing agreement from HBO, and if they fail to procure one everyone will get a full refund for their pledge, which is good because a lot of people have already done so. Their initial target of $5,000 has been obliterated, with nearly $68,000 already committed to the campaign. You can get one for as little as $37, and there are still 22 days left to get on board.
These will certainly be conversation starters, though we imagine most of them will go like this.
