Holy Checkmate Robin! It’s a Batman Chess Set

Only Bruce Wayne can afford this ludicrously expensive Batman chess setIf you’ve still got post-Christmas cash burning a whole in you pocket…here’s an idea! (Please note that my birthday’s in June.)
That’s plenty of time for the more generous of you to scrape together the $800 (about £500 in old money), and buy me the Noble Collection’s elegant new Batman Chess Set. I tell you now that this is a work of art, worthy of a place of display in anyone’s Batcave.

Only Bruce Wayne can afford this ludicrously expensive Batman chess set

A press of the Batman symbol illuminates 50 gu10 LED lights encircling the clear playing surface that lights the board, the Gotham cityscape underneath and projects a Bat-Signal to the sky. No detail has been overlooked in this ultimate Batman collector’s chess set. The Joker, Catwoman, Riddler and Penguin battle Batman, Robin, Batgirl and commissioner Gordon. The oversized board measures 20 inches in length on each side. Playing pieces measure between 2 1/2 to 5 1/2 inches tall and are made in fine pewter and die-cast metal.

An alternative approach, would be to take out a subscription with Eaglemoss for their Batman Chess set.

At around a £8 each for 31 pieces (the first issue with the board incl. is £3), the total set runs to just over £250, so half the price of the Noble set, but you will have to wait 64 weeks to get the whole set.
