For the price, the actual pieces look very tacky to me, from that photo at least :shock:

Just pick up the costume pack for them then, they'll look different. Or pick up the Super Edition for cheaper later that comes with new pieces Siege Cannon, Helicopter, and Thor* to add to your enjoyment.

*Actual extra pieces can be found in the piece bag but you shouldn't use them until you've paid for a code.

I'm a hardcore Chess player and do collect these unique Chess sets. But while the board is beautifully crafted, the figures don't look too impressive to me. It could just be poor photos, but the figures seems to lack detail. I'll pass on this one.

You are forgetting they left out the king and queens from both sides so they can release them for 4.99 a piece, or you can wait for the Super Turbo X332 Donkey Kick Edition that comes with all the skins and the missing pieces. If you look deep into the plastic it is made out of, you can see the code for the kings, queens, and skins btw.

From reading this forum, Capcom have become the (chun li's) butt of all jokes.
