Marvel Chess Collection

A new fortnightly chess collection from Eaglemoss sees a who’s who of Marvel heroes and villains face-off on that 8 by 8 grid.

While it’s been a long time since I’ve went down the road of working on a collection like this (swapping stickers at school may have been the last collecting of this kind that I’ve ventured into) the difference with these and previous sets is the quality of the collection itself.  Each metallic resin figure is sculpted into a figure that should be shown off as much as it should be used in a battle of wits.

Chess Collection #1 - Spider-Man

We’ve seen similar sets of our favourite comic book characters appear and this first issue is an impressive opener as the rules of chess and the strategies you use are laid out along with a look into the characters represented by the chess piece.  In this first issue our “White Knight” takes the shape of our friendly neighbourhood Spider-man and as well as developing our Chess technique we get some history on the character along with some highlighted events and stories in their comic book lives.

Chess - Spidey

You can check out more on this issue and subscribe to the collection now at their website below, where you’ll also qualify for some free gifts that‘ll help you display your completed collection.
