Game of Thrones fans already missing the oversized and simple-minded character Hodor, can pick up a number plate with his name on it - but the bidding starts at $5000.

The HODOR personalised plate is for sale on TradeMe, and the $5000 reserve has already been met, three days before the bidding ends.

Hodor, a simple, but large and strong young man, was a recurrent character in all seasons of the show until his recent demise.

He was only capable of saying the word "hodor", the reason for which was explained in a recent episode of the hugely popular show.

Seller Brad Eyes, of Rotorua, bought the plate while watching season two of the HBO drama, now in its sixth season.

"I got the plate during season two after I laughed when I saw a post of the US HODOR plate come up on a funny pictures website," he wrote.

"I get a lot of people behind me at the lights taking pictures."

The Trade Me auction has already been viewed more than 3700 times.
