This is extremely old in terms of news but one of those things I had to post. I think this thing was made back in 2009 and since every damned thing having to do with Star Wars these days involves legos and remaking classic scenes with Legos and more Legos I figured this chess set gallery would make some people ooze.
Hollywood, CA Lego fan Brandon Griffith created this fantastic chess set out of Lego elements. I love how he broke free of the chess paradigm of one figure per piece. For instance, the king shows Luke and Leia together, while the queen has Han and Chewie. Some of the pieces are tiny vignettes–take the king’s bishop, which shows Ben Kenobi turning off the Death Star’s tractor beam.
Is that cool enough for ya?
