For those with some money to spend, Sky Mall (yes the one that is featured on airliners) has an Avatar Collector Chess set available in stunning quality.

Skymall has written the following about their product- "Sculpted in fine pewter and diecast metal. Hand painted in fine detail.  Each piece is a remarkable recreation of RDA vs. the Na'vi.  Chess pieces measure 3 - 4 inches in height. Board measures approximately 16 x 16 inches.  A truly unique and striking chess set made by The Noble Collection."  http://www.skymall.com/shopping/detail.htm?pid=203635851&c=203339580

This came up in the Noble Collection thread in the merchandise section.

I want it, but have nowhere near enough money for it :( The stuff Noble makes is really nice though, hence the price. I have Jake's dagger from them...

Also, you can find this set on Noble's site here: http://www.noblecollection.com/index.cfm?fa=products.product&id=NN8008&catid=86

It's gorgeous, but ewwww, I so wouldn't want to play chess on that thing, it would be too distracting and confusing.  (Wait, can a tree move diagonally, or straight?  And why the heck is a tree moving to begin with?)

Trripirt ftw?  :D or rather Utralkeylenikre:D :D

Also, the trees are apparently rooks so they can only move forward-backward and side-to-side.

SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS, ARE THESE PEOPLE FLIPPING NUTS????? A little perspective here, A FLYING RC model of a Samson is 60 dollars. and the specialized fabric and glues and colored paints to completely "skin" the airframe of my 18 foot long, 30 foot wingspan Ultralight Aircraft only costs FOUR hundred dollars. The people who buy that Chess set have MUCH more money than brains.

It's a collector's item; the quality and attention to detail are high, and anything produced in small runs is always going to be more expensive. Don't complain because you wouldn't buy it but other people are interested ._. - you don't have to buy one :P

Hey all, does anyone know any one else who may actually HAVE this chess set? I've been looking for it for years because I definitely want to buy it! As both a huge Avatar fan and a collector of themed chess sets.
