Relive the battle between the Colonial Marines and the aliens...
SOTA Toys presents a follow-up to their Alien vs Predator Chess Set released last year. Licensed by 20th Century Fox, the ALIENS Deluxe Chess Set pits the futuristic military might of the United States Colonial Marines against the seemingly unstoppable horde of aliens.
Unlike the fragile resin pieces used in the AvP set, the ALIENS Chess Set features playing pieces (ranging in size from 2" -4.25") made of solid pewter. The sturdy resin board measures 20" x 20".
Two versions are scheduled for arrival February 2006: one with painted pewter pieces (limited to 3000 sets) and an even more limited (500 sets) version featuring polished pewter pieces. SRP of $374.99.
To coincide with the August release of Alien vs. Predator, SOTA will be releasing an amazingly detailed chess set starring the two warring intergalactic species.
Measuring approximately 19" x 5", the AVP Chess Set includes pieces that range in size from from 1.5" (Alien Egg Pawn) to 3" (Alien "Queen"). The board also opens up to provide safe storage for your armies.
The AVP Chess Set will carry a MSRP of $299.99.
