This set is being released on June 9th from Forbidden Planet for what I think is an extortionate price of 26.99.

Normally I wouldnt mind the price but the board looks like cardboard and the pieces look like they have stickers on them.

I saw that title & thought it was going to be proper DW figure pieces. I'm disappointed now. They could have done that so much better & justified a higher price  Sad

Not that I can play chess but with the right set I could be induced to learn  Tongue

Same here - I was all excited to see actual figures as the chess pieces and was sad to see the cube things instead.  It's still cute though!

I'm usually eternally positive about everything, but that looks very cheap and dreadful. They could have put so much more effort into that

No dates or pictures or prices or anything yet, but rumour has it that a new, proper chess set is being lined up for release with proper DW figures and a proper non cardboard board. Once there is more info I will post it.

If this is true then I'll get one. I saw the other version set up in a shop and it looked awful.
