'Game of Thrones'Winter can't come fast enough for 'Game of Thrones' fans who are itching to see Season 2. While they wait in anticipation, they'll soon be able to re-watch Season 1 at their leisure. The DVD and Blu-ray versions -- complete with a host of goodies -- will be in stores March 6.

According to 'Entertainment Weekly,' the sets are really, really good: "HBO has pulled out all the stops. Based on the two disks I previewed, 'Thrones' was given a lavish presentation. The sophisticated menu navigation and behind-the-scenes extras that are on par with DVD sets from hit movies rather than what fans typically receive for TV shows."

After the jump watch a new sneak peek of Arya Stark's "rough and tumble" new look for Season 2 and check out the DVD/Blu-ray extras.

While the DVD and Blu-ray versions won't be out in time for the festive season, they will be out in time for 'Thrones' addicts to get their fix right before Season 2 launches. 'Game of Thrones' Season 1 will be in stores on March 6, 2012. The cost: $79.98 for BD and $59.99 for standard-def DVD.

Here's what you get with the DVD set: Complete guide to Westeros; the making of 'Game of Thrones' featurette; character profiles; the creation of the Emmy-winning opening title sequence; executive producers David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, and author George R.R. Martin talk about the challenges of bringing Martin's epic fantasy novel to life; an in-depth look at The Night's Watch; creating the Dothraki language.

The Blu-ray set has all of the above plus: Complete interactive guide to Westeros; in-episode guide; anatomy of an episode; find hidden dragon eggs feature, which uncovers extra never-before-seen content.
