The last time we did a story about HBO’s amazing “Game of Thrones” series joining forces with Dark Horse for a new product line that’s set to debut in the spring of 2012, all you guys seemed to care about was when you can get your hands on the Blu-ray box set. Well, the answer has come!

Thanks to EW.com we now know that “Game of Thrones” arrives in stores on March 6, 2012. You can check out the Blu-ray artwork below, but first how about a list of all the extras?

    Synopsis:
    Based on the best-selling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, “Game of Thrones” debuted on HBO in March 2011. In a land where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime, trouble is brewing. From the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and the ancient Wall that protects the realm from the darkness beyond, two powerful families are engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. As betrayal, lust, intrigue, and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdoms, their bloody struggle for the Iron Throne will have unforeseen and far-reaching consequences.

      About time! I suspected that they’d release it around the start of Season 2 in April 2012 but I’d have taken it a bit sooner without many complaints. Some of the listed extras sound like EPK fluff but we’ll see. I’m looking forward to rewatching the first season and diving into the second one soon thereafter.
