The stunning Lord of the Rings Chess Collection brings to life the epic battles for Middle-Earth where the forces of light, embodied by Aragorn the Ranger and Gandalf the White confront the legions of darkness, commanded by the dark lord Sauron. This collection portrays the memorable cast of characters from Peter Jackson's acclaimed Lord of the Rings film trilogy, and each figure is meticulously reproduced and aprpoved by both New Line Studios and the original actors to ensure total authenticity. Each chess piece beings life as a unique hand-crafted sculpture, then is hand-painted and matched with a runic inscription. Each piece also comes with a 12-page guide to the character and to the game of chess itself, from strategy to history. Begin your collection with the White King, Aragorn (#1) or the Black Bishop, Gothmog (#2). Then continue your collection with the White Bishop, Gandalf (#3) and the Black Pawn, Gollum (#4).
