Star Wars LEGO Hoth Battle Chess Set [pics]

Its not very often that I find somebody who will play me in chess (I don’t care much for playing computer opponents because they always seem to kick my butt), but I have always enjoyed seeing novelty chess sets like this awesome Star Wars LEGO Hoth battle chess set!

This amazing Star Wars LEGO Hoth battle chess set was created by Flickr user Brickplace Custom.

Unlike most of the LEGO builds I post about, I don’t know anything about the number of bricks used or the amount of time involved in building this, but I can tell you that it measures 45cm X 45cm.

Now the real question is, which side would you play as?  Its not as simple as white or black anymore, now you must pick between the Empire vs. Rebel Alliance!

Pass this along to any Star Wars fans, LEGO lovers and Chess players you know!  Like us on Facebook too!
