OUCH! that can put a huge dent on some people's wallet... me like but it's too X-pensive...
 
that price is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too high.. But im sure someone will buy it
 
This makes to Deadpool statue look cheap... maybe I'll buy that now.
 
I already have a chess set... and I dont play enough to want a customized Marvel set :p but it sure is perddy
 
Spider-Man is his own queen? Sheesh.
 
I'd love to have that, but if I can't I wonder if anyone is selling it piece by piece. I want the Punisher Knight
 
I hate the fact that there are Two Spider-mans there. The Black Spiderman doesn't need to be the Queen. Black Cat should be the queen.

I'd Be More interested in an X-men one.

Cyclops - King
Jean - Queen
Wolverine - Bishop
Boshop - Bishop
Angel - Knight
Beast - Knight
Iceman - Rook
Colossus - Rook
Pawns - I dunno


Magneto - King
Mystique - Queen
Sabertooth - Bishop
Pyro - Bishop
Toad - Knight
Mastermind - Knigt
Avalanche - Rook
Blob - Rook

Pawns - Either Sentinels or stanrd Acolytes
 
it sucks that spidey is the queen. and it's a waste of a peice. i wish they could make cool stuff like this for collectors who could actually afford it.
 
why didn't they use spider-girl or madam web? and female ock for the black queen?

How about Mary Jane?

And i'd probably replace Moon Knight and Blade with characters more integral to the Spider-Man Universe;
Maybe Prowler, and then make Cloak and Dagger seperate pieces...

Anyway, my wife is gonna ***** about the price 'til the cows come home, but i'm STILL probably going to get this.

It's freaking gorgeous!
 
how awesome.

too bad i wasn't rich; if i was that would be so mine.
 
...I really don't like it that much. After the great work they turned out on the Aliens and AVP chess sets, I guess I just got it too pumped up in my mind.

I'll pass, regardless of the price. I think I liked the Spiderman monopoly more.

Well, I think it's settled. Price too high, so we can all just stop dreamin'.
