Awesomesauce: DC’s Build-Your-Own Batman Chess Set

I never learned how to play chess. I regret that a little, and it looks like now is the perfect time to learn. Apparently DC Comics is releasing a full Batman-inspired chess set piece by piece with the first pieces set to ship in January. Hit the jump to check out each piece and learn how to pre-order these.

The first four pieces are now available at Things From Another World, for a fairly affordable price given how gorgeous these things are. Check ’em out:

Batman  – The White King:

Robin – The White Bishop:

Joker – The Black King

Commissioner Gordon – The White Pawn:

All these pieces ship in January, but the initial pre-order deadline at Things From Another World is October 26th, so act fast in case there isn’t a second order!

    If Damien is Robin then I’ll be watching for Dick to be Nightwing and curious to see what suit they use for his design…. 🙂

    Hi. There is an advertisement on tv in Cape Town, South Africa that shows this chess-set being sold in some stores at R 39.99 that includes the DC comic-book – I can’t seem to locate the store. Do you know who the suppliers are?

  1. No trackbacks yet.
