I just found out about a Star Wars chess set by Planeta DeAgostini. It is being released piece by piece in subscription format, much like the DeAgostini figurines and starship models.
There is a microsite dedicated to the set here, and details on the individual pieces can be found here. However, everything’s in Spanish, which I don’t know. I have gathered that Ackbar is piece #24 in the series, and is a mere pawn – insulting, I know – but his figurine looks quite nice.
I honestly have no idea if/when this set is coming to other countries, or anything else, really. I’m sorry to be so scant on details. Any help would be appreciated!
UPDATE: More information here!
