Sure, they got a little help from K'NEX, but that doesn't make this LEGO-centric rendition of the "Game of Thrones" opening any less impressive.
YouTube users MatthewP and Monica Garcia, part of the Pure Imagine production team, used stop-motion animation to recreate the mechanical-looking map of Westeros, home to the Seven Kindgoms, out of what must be thousands of LEGOs.
Possibly because of copyright concerns, the intro is set to Super Mario-like music -- which may make it that much better.
Fans can decide whether "A Clash of Thrones" triumphs several other homages.
Last month, geeky fans created a parody trailer for the series using PlayMobile toys.
But so far it seems like The Simpsons' version of the intro, in which the iconic sites of Springfield pop up Westeros-style, is the tribute to beat.
