Found 22nd Feb 2013
Just got this in the mail, a limited Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Chess Set (only 5000 sets). It looks like it's a quality piece with nice refinery, no cheap Mario or Sonic chess set. It's a pre-order, but the set will still be released this month. Consider that delivery from Play-Asia might take about 1-3 weeks. This is clearly not for everyone, but if you are looking for a nice display chess set and love Street Fighter, this might be something for you.

•Highly-detailed silver and pewter-colored resin pieces ranging from 1.75" to 3.25" tall
•Each piece has its corresponding traditional chess icon sculpted on the front and back of the pedestal for easy of play
•Each chess piece stores conveniently in its own protective custom slot under the chess board when not displayed
•Large 18"x18" smoked and sandblasted glass game board
•High-quality black wood storage case with polished chrome latch and hinges and a large Street Fighter® 25th Anniversary logo laser-etched into the lid
•Storage case doubles as playing surface with the glass board's feet nesting safely in small holes in the case lid

I do think they should have gone for Cammy as a queen in stead of Juri.

Like I said, this is not for everyone. But this price is not thát strange for a good quality chess set in general. If you combine that with a love for Street Fighter you would have a nice match.

awesome.

cool - heat!

What's the matter with the price? Yes, I know it's high, but to some people like myself, Street Fighter is a big thing and I would buy it if I had the money.

What has chess got to do with SF?

Massive fan of the series, but it is cack like this which cheapens the brand image of Capcom licensing

Or!!!!

You can get it for £264 on capcom store delivered and you get a free lanyard ..... Your welcome

Quite a lot actually. Chess has frequently been used as an analogy for fighting games when played at its highest level, only a game of chess played at high speed.

Other analogies for SF would be rock paper scissors.

Sorry but you can probably buy a 100+ year old Chess set for that money that will continue to gain in value...

wonder how much this will be in a pawn shop lol

Move one of the pawns down, down-right, right + hard punch to do a Hadouken and knock every other pawn off the chess board.

Does that have Ryu? No. Ok. Are there more than 5000 of those on the market? Probably...

I am a games collector, I have been for years. I recently picked up the 25th anniversary Street Fighter collection, however I doubt these chess sets will ever be worth much more than the price they are currently being sold at. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think there is a massive following or high demand for Street Fighter anymore / compared to 10 years ago.

I do like these sets, but they are way overpriced, as are Play-Asia.
