'Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season' Blu-ray Discontinued... And Reissued

Posted Mon Jun 25, 2012 at 06:00 AM PDT by

We suspect Ichabod Crane was hired to silence the George W. Bush severed head controversy in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, HBO seems to be preparing to re-release 'Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season' on Blu-ray on July 10.

In case you missed the news, a leftover prop head from George Bush was used as one of the severed heads in an episode on the show -- not as a political statement, but because that's what the prop department had lying around. But of course, some people started crying about it and as we all know when people start crying... reissues tend to happen.

The head will apparently be removed from the reissued product since that is just easier than sending pacifiers out by mail.

Specs and supplements are expected to match the discontinued version with a suggested list price of $79.98.

You can find the latest specs for the neutered "The Sky is Falling' edition of 'Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under July 10.
