Ok, I love Chess and now I want one of these!


For Lego fans, Robot geeks and Chess nerds...it's got something for everyone. I really like the knights kicking up there legs when moving. Very cool.

Over 100,000 LEGO® pieces
37,612 in the chess board
17,748 in the robot bases
17,114 in the bodies
22,688 in the mosaics
1,853 in the move selection center
Total retail cost: around $30,000
Size of board: 156ft2 (14.5m2)
Took 4 people about a year to create

That's pretty cool.

Doesn't look like whoever is playing are very astute players. Maybe just demonstrating how the pieces move.

Noticed that as well. Not a very interesting match at all.

All that money, technology and manpower without a good game?


Peace

Looks cool as well but I don't think I could concentrate very much...


I still like the old fashioned way...2 people, one board and pieces that just sit and wait.

A cold beer, shot of jack and GAME ON!!!!

Peace

Haha yeah i could never concentrate during that boss fight either....


Definitely one of the more creative bosses to be in World of Warcraft

I would probably break that Lego chess board very quickly, not delicate enough to even build that.

Check your change jar, the sofa cushions, laundry and the ashtray in the car...

Probably 30K laying around somewhere...
