Take A 'Game Of Thrones' Tour At Comic-Con With (Not) George R. R. Martin

(Not) George R. R. Martin is so cute and cuddly!

"Game of Thrones" fans have a pretty tough pill to swallow when it comes to San Diego Comic-Con this year -- because, unlike in Cons past, "A Song of Ice and Fire" scribe George R. R. Martin has opted to stay home and keep writing instead of attending the festivities. Bummer.

We at MTV News were pretty sad about this news, so to make up for George's colossal absence, we nabbed one of Factory Entertainment's deluxe talking plush signature edition George dolls (a Comic-Con exclusive!) to take us (and you!) on a tour of the coolest "GoT" stuff SDCC 2015 has to offer... and of course, ran into a few fired up cosplayers on the way.

First, let George welcome you to historic downtown San Diego's Gaslamp District!

If we were in Westeros, this would totally be located in Dorne.

Next, allow George to show you the oh-so-exclusive Hard Rock Hotel.

It's where the celebs stay!

Here's George waiting in the already-forming Hall H line!

... But he'd never have to wait in that, of course.

See? Here's George enjoying his ~ V.I.P. ~ status at Hall H!

Writing one of the most popular book series in the world has its perks.

Next, George headed inside for preview night, and checked out all the "Game of Thrones" fever.

Get those advertising dollars, George!

George was SO PSYCHED that his favorite, "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" was there!

Settle down, George!

Of course, he had to visit the "Doctor Who" TARDIS as well.

He's so proud of his fave, Maisie Williams, booking a guest-starring role!

We nearly had to bring out tranquilizers for George when he saw this Tyler Posey "Teen Wolf" ad.

We love him too, George.

"Walking Dead," however, is NOT his favorite.

Gotta protect that Sunday night at 9 p.m. timeslot.

At one point, George even ran into an old friend!

"Please don't kill me," she whispered.
