Advantages Great attention to detail.
Disadvantages Bits can fall off easily.
I was very fortunate, in that a few years ago, my friend went on holiday to America with her family, and one of the presents she brought back with her was this lovely Lego chess set. I believe it cost her $35, which at the time was about £25 in English money. I was absolutely astounded then, when, in the process of submitting it as a product suggestion over on Dooyoo, I saw the same set on Amazon retailing for £249! Hence the title of my review, which were the exact words I yelled at my son, who regularly plays with the set!
When you pop the fasteners and open the box, the sheer quality of this chess set is very apparent. The box opens like a book, with the board in a compartment on the left, and the pieces in a compartment on the right, which is covered with a protective layer of perspex.
Now I will go into detail about the chess pieces, which are, of course, little Lego men and women and again, fully compatible and the same size as regular Lego people! I will describe each piece for you:
There are 8 pawns in the set and these are little knights, all dressed alike. They have silver, Norman style helmets on their heads, smiley faces, with a little goatee beard, dark blue tops with chain mail detail and a belt on the front, but a plain back and grey trousers. Each pawn carries a grey sword and a blue and gold shield with the emblem of a crown on it. Their feet are designed to slot into the studs on the board so they can stand up properly, as is the case with all the other pieces in the set.
The king is really lovely, and you can tell he is the king because his sword is bigger than everyone elses and it is gold and shiny!
