Custom Star Wars Chess Set

This chess set was a birthday gift for my dad, the guy who who forever changed my life when I was five years old by taking me to see A New Hope in the theater in 1977. It was the first movie I ever saw in the theater, and after all these years I still have not really ever recovered. Geez, thanks dad!

All figures started out as bare plastic toy figures.

The complete set - before the carnage began.

The Rebels

The Imperials

The Grand Master himself.

Opening shots.

Dad kicking my Imperial butt -even though he seems to be grabbing one of my pieces here (is that how he won?)

Close up of the battle.


Even furry Imperial Walkers couldn't save the Empire this time.
