Chess Set Made For Die-Hard Star Wars Fanboys

Those of you out there that are entertained by the R2-D2 beer holder and the pink storm trooper showing up at the G-20 protests, there is a chess board that was made specifically for your type.  Who am I talking about?  You Star Wars fanboys out there.

The chess board’s battlefield features 64 black and white squares with 32 pawns in a game.  The figures are leafed in both silver and gold to represent the opposing teams.

Retail price of the Star Wars chess set… Drum roll… $539.99 on sale.  The chess sets will be shipping in September 2009.
