About this deal

The first set in the Marvel Chess Collection consists of the greatest heroes and villains from across the Marvel Universe. Will Spider-Man survive against Venom? Can Captain America overcome the villainous Red Skull? Or will the forces of evil defeat the assembled heroes? All-in-all, as an introduction to the game of chess The Marvel Chess Collection is pretty good. You get an easy to understand and informative guide to the game that offers some solid advice, with a good visual display of what it’s explaining. From a comicbook geek perspective, this isn’t a bad set in terms of collections, but it’s missing characters that I would deem a must-have where it comes to the Marvel universe as a whole. So… is your favourite hero or villain included in the set? Well here’s an idea of some of the characters included for each side;

Each piece is made of a high-quality lead-free metallic resin, and they’re fairly weightly and robust. The first piece will look familiar if you also got the Fact Files issues from Eaglemoss, as Spidey’s pose is identical to the statue from that set. This is a little disappointing, and I instantly thought that each one will be a carbon copy of the statues you got with MFF. Thankfully this isn’t the case. All the other figures I’ve seen so far have different poses and styles. So a new fortnightly magazine allowing you to collect a complete chess set, with each piece being a character from the Marvel universe has come out… and I’m all over it like a fanboy rash. Each figure stands atop a circular base just over an inch tall, the figures themselves are about 4 inches tall, depending on the pose they’re pulling (Captain America and Red Skull both hold their weapons of choice over their heads), and they’re painted pretty well. The bases are all almost identical, save for some slight differences. They all have their respective player emblems (knight, rook etc) on the bases, and the heroes’ ones are all a metallic steel colour. The only difference the villains’ bases have is that they have a slight bronze tinge to them. The Marvel Chess Collection is a fantastic series offering the comic fan and chess lover alike the chance to collect a unique chess set, featuring some of the greatest and most loved Marvel characters!
