"Game of Thrones" just wrapped its second season, and the war for Westeros supremacy remains as contentious as it ever was. But even though multiple kings are still vying for the crown, it could be you who sits upon the Iron Throne in the end... assuming you've got five-figures worth of extra coin lying around.

The HBO Shop is selling a life-size replica of the Iron Throne of Westeros. The thrones, which are made to order, clock in at over seven feet tall, 350 pounds, with a whopping price-tag of $30,000, plus $1,800 for shipping. Vhalar Morghulis, that's a lot of money! But what's a few silver stags when absolute power over the Seven Kingdoms can be yours?

More details past the jump!

Mads

The Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen has found himself on a bit of a hot streak lately. In the last month, the former Bond baddie has found himself cast as the villain for Marvel's upcoming Norse sequel, "Thor 2," and he won a Best Actor award at Cannes for his role in "The Hunt." Now TVLine is reporting that Mikkelsen has just signed on to play one of the most notorious villains of all time.

According to TVLine's report, Mikkelsen will play Hannibal Lecter in the new NBC series based on the characters from Thomas Harris' book "Red Dragon." The series is said to take a contemporary spin on the tale, which was previously made into two films, "Manhunter" with Brian Cox as Lecter and "Red Dragon" where Anthony Hopkins reprised the role he made famous.

Mikkelsen will star in the show opposite Hugh Dancy.

Breaking Bad

In a summer full of blockbuster movies and beautiful weather outside, there are few things we are looking forward to as much as the season premiere of "Breaking Bad." Last year delivered on so many levels with an incredible slow burn that made it perhaps the best season yet.

Now Vulture has the first poster from the upcoming fifth season of "Breaking Bad," and suffice it to say, we are now even more excited for the return of one of our favorite shows.

Check out the full poster after the jump!

Don’t fret “Fringe” fans! As the show enters its final season this fall comes word that the Science Channel will air the show in syndication. The two universes will live on!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Science Channel has bought off-network syndication rights to the Fox sci-fi drama, meaning that Warner Bros. TV, the studio behind the show, can offer up more syndication rights to a streaming service as well. With season five premiering this fall, the news breathes new life into the low-rated, but much-loved show.

"Breaking Bad" fans, start shaving your heads and break out the blue stuff (don't really do that), because the grand return of Heisenberg finally has a date.

The first portion of the final season of "Breaking Bad" will begin on July 15 at 10/9 p.m. central, TV Line reports. Note that that's "the first portion" only; the sixteen-episode final season will be split into two chunks of eight, meaning the "Bad" times won't be fully resolved until the summer of 2013. That's more than fine by me.

AMC also announced the return date for "Hell on Wheels," its gritty Western that debuted last fall. The series will kick off its ten-episode second season on August 12.

If you're a fan of "Game of Thrones," the photo you see below should make you very, very happy. Your mind isn't playing tricks on you: that is indeed Jerome Flynn as the sellsword Bronn, taking aim with a fire-tipped arrow at an unseen enemy with Blackwater Bay at his back. That's right: the Battle of Blackwater is on!

It's the first official photo from "Blackwater," the highly awaited episode of "Game of Thrones" season two that finally, finally, thrusts viewers into the thick of an all-out battle (as in on screen, no getting-knocked-out-and-skipping-the-fight trickery) between Joffrey's allies in King's Landing and the forces of Stannis Baratheon. "A Song of Ice and Fire" mastermind George R.R. Martin wrote the episode, only adding to the list of reasons why fans are losing their minds in anticipation of the hour.

"Friday Night Lights" has no flaws, save for one: the Landry Clarke murder subplot. The NBC football drama misfired horribly in its second season when it turned bumbling geek Landry into a killer of rapists, and even the show's staunchest supporters can't overlook the laughably bad storyline.

But here's a Landry Clarke murder subplot-in-the-making we can all get behind: actor Jesse Plemons, the man behind the East Dillon Lions kicker, is joining another critically acclaimed television series, "Breaking Bad," in a role that's sure to get bloody before all's said and done.

When you play the "Game of Thrones" RPG, you win or you die. Literally. But somewhere along the way our definition of "winning" seems to have deviated from the one used by the folks over at Cyanide Studio.

The game's got everything hardcore "A Song of Ice and Fire" fans would want. There's political intrigue, deception at every turn, heartbreaking deaths and genuinely surprising plot twists. Okay, so maybe those are just the things we're used to from the "Thrones" TV series on HBO, or from the horrors that author George R.R. Martin force feeds us in his ongoing book series, but at least the folks behind the game stayed true to those "Game of Thrones" traits.

MTV News got a chance to play the RPG and decided that it's something that anyone who considers themselves a fan of "Game of Thrones" -- be it the book series, the TV show or both -- should try out. Check out our five reasons you should be intrigued after the jump.

What happens when you take the masterminds behind "Lost," "Supernatural" and "Iron Man" and put them on the same creative project together? Apparently you get something so heated that it shuts down electricity all across the planet. Not the greatest thing that could happen to mankind, no, but it might make for some very compelling television.

J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke, together with director Jon Favreau, have joined forces for "Revolution," a new television series hitting NBC in the fall. Set in a world where all forms of electricity have been shut down for fifteen years, "Revolution" tells the story of the survivors living in the post-power world. Among those survivors are a certain "Twilight" favorite, a "Breaking Bad" master villain, and one of the counselors from Camp Firewood of "Wet Hot American Summer" fame.

Check out the first full trailer for the new series beyond the break!

Breaking Bad

There hasn't been much revealed about the upcoming fifth season of "Breaking Bad." We know that it will be eight episodes long, splitting the usual order between this season and a final sixth season. We know that Walter White went darker than ever before at the end of season four, and we know that we're slowly dying while having to wait for the summer premiere.

A new video from the set of the fifth season in New Mexico does little more than remind us how excited we are to have the show back. If anything, it's just nice to see Bryan "B-Cran" Cranston back in his old Walter White bald-goatee combo.

Check out the next teaser after the jump!
