The Palace Pool Club’s website says that entrance costs P1,500.

Kristian’s set at The Palace Pool Club was previously announced on social media on April 29, but news of his ToyCon appearance comes just a day after major developments in Hodor’s storyline in Game of Thrones.

The half-giant character, who has been Bran Stark’s companion since the early seasons, seems to have died at the hands of the White Walkers. The question of why he can only say one word – “Hodor,” hence his moniker – was also answered in the episode. –
