    Cool. I might get that, but I might not. It all depends on how expensive it is and how available it is when it comes out. Peace out.

    I hate the characters they picked... Galvatron and Megatron co-existing, skipping around original and movie characters... It's completely without thought, if this set's popular then they'll have already wasted a lot of characters to do a second one.

    Not to mention you know how often you'll knock your own pieces around from Grimlock's oversized piece.

    there is thought to it. Galvatron replaced megatron, just like hotrod replaced prime... hence they're all 4 in the set as the 4 most powerful pieces.

    HOLY SH!t!!!!!!!!!!! I like chess too, but not that much. That and the way that chess set looks, it's not worth that much. The price would make more sense if the figures were solid pewter, and was a limited run thing. I'll stick with my classic wooden set. Peace out.

    I like the set but my first question was "Why isn't Tracks the Autobot queen?"

    Huh???

    All the squares are the same color, it just doesn't look right.

    EDIT
    - Also the pieces look a lot like LOC sculpts.

    I think if it were $40 and made of good quality plastic, people would probably buy them.

    I am sorry, but i really dont think it looks great... IMO the planning doesnt look to great....kinda hard to know which one is pawn and bishop etc.... Of course Megs is prolly queen and Galvs is prolly king.......or vice versa...anyways dont tihnk I am going to buy it....however why play a small game of chess when we can have TransFans Cosplay as the chars themselves as an all out brawl hhahahah :lol

    I'd pay to see that!


    On another note: I emailed these guys back when I first heard they were doing this set. I voiced my concern over the price and how many of us thrifty TFer's could do better with stuff that actually had a HASTAK stamp on it and still get the quality and feel of what they were trying to accomplish.....they low balled me with beaurocratic answers and wankery. But nothing to suggest to me otherwise why this product was a good idea.

    On the plus side: With the movie coming out Hasbro has already announced they're doind an official chess set. Cost.....30$! If it's anything like the Star Wars one they did (unpainted pewter figures) I'm all over it!!!!

    No, Sir i don't like it !!!
    Looks cheap. I could make a better looking board myself and then use LoC or 3" Ti as the pieces. I'm sure i could do it for less then $300
