Hum I love your optimism  :-P

First it would depend on the price, and especially on the quality of the MFs !! If its to have loads of useless figs I'll gladly pass, thats for sure !!

Anyway I think it would conntradict the licence agreement  ;-)  If not I much rather have an advent calendar  ;-)

So I'm not sure on what I'll vote here.

Do you want to sleep with Jessica Alba?

Would you pay to sleep with Jessica Alba?

So, of course I voted Yes to both. Because even though it'd be cool, LEGO will never produce Star Wars chess, and I'll never get boinkage with Jessica Alba Posted Image

Yuck, you just made me think of an droids VS. EP. 3 chess set...  :-X  I have enough of both, thanks.

How would it contradict the license agreement? I'm not very familiar with it.

No you got me confussed here. Read the whole thing so fast, so I thought the vote was about sleep with Alba  *wacko*  X-D
But paying... can it be arranged in another way??
So then offcourse I voted yes on both  *wub*

But understanding the issue better, it still is a "Yes", "Yes" answer.
Probably will not happend. But you can alwas dream!!

G Ras, what a lame title you have !!

I voted NO and NO for differet reasons:
* if its a chess game it will be some kind of exclusive meaning more expensive prices
* the price per fig ratuion will be atrocious
* the figs within would be OK but not fantastic !!

I would go for a dual YES for other products like Tic Tac Toe, advent calendar and cheaper products  ;-)

Voted no to wanting one and yes to buying one.

I already have an episode 1 chess set and i don't use that so i don't want one. but being a star wars lego nut i'd still buy one just for the figs.

both yes to Jessica Alba though  *wub*

I voted No and No.

There are three reasons for my decision:
1. A SW chess surely would be very expensive. And since I really haven't got much money I rather spend my money on "normal" SW sets than on a chess.
2. I don't think that a SW chess would include great new minifigs. There surely would only be the same minifigs like we already know from all the other sets. Only think of an OT SW set - which minifigs would it include?!
For the bad guys: Stormtroopers as farmers, Palpatine as king, Darth Vader as queen, At-St Drivers as horses, Imperial Royal Guards as towers and Imperial Officers as bishops. And for the good guys: Rebel Troopers as farmers, Luke as king, Leia as queen, pilots as horses, Rebel Workers (like in the newer version of the A-Wing) as towers  and Hoth Troopers as bishops.
3. But if that SW chess however includes some new minifigs I would rather more see them included in a "normal" set.

Well still if this WAS going to happend, TLC would been so crazy if they didnt took the opportunity to include all new mini-figs.
Kind of a suiside mission. I probably would get one still if it was as borring as you point out Klaus.
But as we are in the "dreaming world" here afterall, why dont give it a hype!!

Yes 'n' yes. I think nothing would sell better than the ultimate SW army builder! Besides, TLC could even make an OT one and a PT one. The Empire in the OT one could have stormtroopers(pawn), Death Star troopers(knight), officers(bishop), AT-ST drivers on a turret(rook), Vader and the Emperor(queen and king, respectively). For the Rebellion: Fleet troopers(pawn), Han and smuggler(knight), pilots(bishop), honor guards(green suit, fleet trooper helmet, as rook), and Luke and Leia(king and queen, respectively).

Normally I'd go on to PT, but I'm tired(typed a lot today), so I'll leave it at that.

Lol, didn't notice KD's post above.
