Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Lego Chess


Previewed at Star Wars Days at LEGOLand, CA a few weeks back, Brandon Griffith (icgetaway) has taken some high quality photos of his incredible The Empire Strikes Back chess set. Check out the full set of photos on flickr. This set was a follow up to his A New Hope chess set.

I noticed that he changed IG88 since Star Wars Days from black to dark grey. Good move. And mighty impressive set all around.

that's awesome! So many great details.
I love his way of building a mini AT-AT. So much better than the Lego one.
And I love that he includes cases for the figs for storing them when not playing.

I love this and the A New Hope one. I can't wait to see a Return of The Jedi version. I hope you plan on doing the prequels too!!

This is so beautiful. If I wasnt into legos, this MOC would be the kind of work that would draw me in.

Wether you like Star Wars or Legos, this catches your eye, no matter what

This is really just amazing- the details of this thing are fantastic. Favorite part by far would have to be the holographic Emperor.

Griffith put so many amazing parts together to make this board - the AT-ATs, turrets, rock and snow landscape, and fig displays/holders would be remarkable on their own. Throw them all together and it's mind blowing. I would love to have something of this caliber on display at home.

Wow, that is just phenomenal. Now I feel the urge to build my own chess set...
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.
