Some More Possitive PR on Trend Hunter

Trend Hunter has also written about my chess set! Saying that it

"is a wildly genuine, outlandishly individualist piece that is totally worth it if you can afford it."

Thank you Trend Hunter!

Featured on Wired!

The Lego Chess Set I talked about in my previous post was featured on wired.com today thanks to Charlie Sorrel.

http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/10/lego-chess-set-costs-more-than-a-macbook-air/

Granted he thinks it is a bit expensive, but I appreciate the exposure all the same.

What do you guys think? Is he right? Believe it or not it cost about $700 just to get the pieces needed to build it.

Please comment and let me know what you think.

Lego Chess Sets For Sale!

Beginning this fall I am going to begin the production and sale of classic-styled Lego chess sets! I have a complete design that you can see below. The entire set is to be made from only classic Lego bricks and plates; no exotic parts used.

This design and style appeals to the true beauty of classic Lego design. The squares of the board were made with an advanced SNOT technique (Studs Not On Top) giving the board a nice finished look. What's even better is that the smooth surfaces are locked into the board so they won't move around.

The board dimensions will 22.75" on each side with the squares measuring 2.25". The king stands 4.5" tall.

If you have seen enough and want to purchase one, you can contact me directly or go to my Etsy posting http://www.etsy.com/listing/59582303/lego-chess-set.

This set has almost 4000 pieces!! Please let me know what you think of this set!
Complete set $1295.
