Nope. They're all random. Just like all of Olly's blind box sets. I think at one point he mentioned on twitter trying to arrange them into smaller sets, but I'm sure that would have been a pain in the balls for the printer.

I got Bronn and Vaerys. It would be fun to getting some trading going on with these though. I really want a Hodor.

Yeah, "trying" to match goes out the window when you've got 25k of those.

I know that this thread...

Olly Moss Blindbox Trading Corner

... connected at least a few people with each other for blindbox trades. You can start by posting there. Be specific as to what you want, priorities, etc., and what you are will to pay or trade. As well you can a) ask a mod to change the title of the thread to "Olly Moss 5x5 Giclee Trading Corner" (so people don't think it is blindbox 5x5 specific), or start a new Olly Moss GoT trading Corner thread, or a personal ISO thread.

Also, next time, if you have a pairing/framing goal in mind, spring the coin for one of the smaller sets. 8)

Silver lining, Briene is one of the few with the smallest run of 760, so it's a (not-so) rare!

I still have my fingers crossed for some Arrested Development 5 x 5s. After a Lebowski set of course.

That is super helpful. I was hoping for a blind box dedicated thread and just hadn't gotten around to searching for it. I went ahead and posted in it and I'll see if I get any bites. Thanks!

I've been looking into getting my GoT prints framed as a whole set (all 30).I found an online frame shop in my area that lets you customise the size and placement of the cutouts for the frames (30 cutouts :shock: ).

I decided to do a little test of the quality and accuracy and get my TD prints framed.

I am pretty happy with the result especially for the price ($30) and the turn-around (1 day).

I think I will go ahead with the super large GoT frame. I am thinking of having either khaki (a bit neutral) or peach (similar to the print background) coloured edges?

Has anyone else got theirs framed, what colour would anyone recommend?

Thanks :D

Wait, are they online, or are they local to you? Because if they're online I need a link. That's a great price and those came out awesome!

What size measurements did you go with for the mounts and frame?
