Fans can pre-order the collection by visiting The Royal Mail website and collect all the major characters from the series, both past and present.

As most people already know, the series is set in Westeros and tells of the struggle for supremacy by warring families across the Seven Kingdoms. Messages tend to be sent via raven… we think these stamps might prove to be more useful.
As well as the ten main human characters, there are also five stamps featuring significant non-human aspects of the show. From Direwolves to dragons, by way of the Iron Throne itself, the collection has something of each of the previous seven seasons of Game of Thrones.
The stamps will be available from 23 January 2018at www.royalmail.com/gameofthrones, from 7,000 Post Office branches across the UK and by calling 03457 641 641.
