Probably means that the originals where hand sculpted then they made casts of them and made millions of copies using cheap bendy plastic look at Darth Mauls twin lightsabers, Top right corner of picture, Is it because he's moving that fast that they look as if their bent or do the need some viagra???

Good price but I'm not a fan of novelty chess sets myself. You spend loads of time figuring out which piece represents what so you can figure out the appropriate move to make. And then you still inevitably make a mistake you wouldn't have made on a normal chessboard because you thought Obi-Wan Kenobi was a bishop when in fact he's a knight or something. They're not really practical as a useable chess set and are a bit geeky as an ornament/show piece.

COPIED FROM A REVIEW ON AMAZON For those who may be interested, here is a listing of which pieces are included in this new chess set. For the silver "good" side, the pawns are Republic Clone Troopers, kneeling and holding a rifle. The two rooks are C3P0/R2D2 (together on one piece), and Padme firing a blaster from Episode II. The knights are Han Solo in Episode IV clothing and Chewbacca with bowcaster, and the bishops are Princess Leia from Episode IV and Luke Skywalker from Episode VI. The queen is a bearded Episode III Obi-Wan, and the king is Yoda flying through the air (resting on a piece of clear plastic) with a lightsaber. On the black "evil" side, the pawns are the Episode IV era stormtroopers, kneeling with rifles. The two rooks are Count Dooku and Darth Maul (holding a double-bladed lightsaber and doing a high kick). Bishops are General Grievous (two of his four arms are holding lightsabers) and a General Grievous bodyguard with staff. Knights are Jango Fett from Episode II flying with jet pack and firing double pistols, and Boba Fett from Episode VI, presumably firing his wrist cable. The queen is Darth Vader with lightsaber, and the king is Emperor Palpatine with hands poised for sith lightning ala Episode VI. All pieces are made from molded plastic, and weapons will most likely be deformed and wilted when you remove them from the package. If your lightsabers are not all twisted and warped, be surprised and thankful. Also, getting them put back into their proper (unmarked) place in the packaging is like a difficult jigsaw puzzle.

My son got this for his birthday and to be honest doesn't really follow the chess rules, more the battle chess rules as seen in Episode IV along with his imagination and he loves the set! I can agree with the last comment from the Amazon review, I dare anyone to get them all back in the packaging first time!

Yeah, I found the board impossible to 'read' using Star Wars pieces. Mind you I'm carp at chess anyway...

Bought one for my sprog a year or so ago (for 14.99). Its useless as a chess set (impossible to tell who is what), but to get 32 quality Star Wars figurines for that price is a great deal - he plays with them all the time. If you have a young kid who loves Star Wars its a great deal.
