I'm Impressed: 'Return Of The Jedi' LEGO Chess Set

July 31, 2012


This is an ultra-impressive Star Wars 'Return of the Jedi' themed LEGO chess set lovingly crafted by Brandon Griffith. It even has storage compartments for all the pieces under the play surface. What it doesn't have under its surface? A Rancor pit. Oh man, remember when Malakili the Rancor keeper was crying after Luke killed the thing? That made me sad because it was like, watching his pet die. But enough tears for today, let's talk about something happy. Something -- anything. "You have a birthday coming up." *sobbing* I'M JUST AN OLD DRIED-OUT PIECE OF SHIT ON THE SIDEWALK OF LIFE AND I KNOW IT.

Hit the jump for some closeups but be sure to check out Brandon's Flickr page for high-res shots.






Thanks to Artery, who agrees chess might be the game of kings, but dominoes -- dominoes is the game of the people. Or is it Connect Four?

    Oh goodness, I have died and gone to Star Wars and Chess heaven simultaneously. I collect chess sets and I've never once thought about a Star Wars themed set. It is like the two things I love the very most.

    This is absolutely amazing! I have never seen anything like this. My wife got me a medieval chess set for my birthday but nothing compares to this. Do you think they are going to start making more from other movies? That would be way cool.

    This is an awesome chess set. I've seen a star wars lego chess set for A New Hope and I've seen a civil war chess set but this one is new to me. Awesome!

  • Nice, but I think Jabba's tail might get in the way.
