Royal Selangor have released details on how to pre-order a new chess set based on the characters from the original trilogy. The set costs £1499, made up of the usual high quality you’d expect from Royal Selangor, and has a mix of classic and unusual characters playing for both sides.
Iconic characters, representing opposing forces from Star Wars Episodes IV, V and VI, face each other across a chessboard of tempered glass, capped by satin finish pewter feet. The embattled Rebel Alliance faces down their menacing Imperial counterparts as pewter chess pieces, enhanced by sleek bonded porcelain plinths in cool grey and matt black respectively.
Size Chessboard H2cm x 42.5cm x 42.5cm, chess pieces H6cm – 13cm including base x Dia 3.5cm
