Of course the Batman Chess Set costs nearly $800. The Dark Knight is a fancy superhero. The fanciest superhero of all, I would say. And check out how dashing he looks in fine pewter and diecast metal. Villains the Joker, Catwoman, Riddler, and Penguin join Batman, Robin, Batgirl, and commissioner Gorden on a neato Gotham-cornered board oversized to 20 inches on each side.
Most impressive though is the chess set's 50 LED lights encircling the board's surface, illuminating both it and the surrounding Gotham cityscape, plus projecting the Bat-Signal into the sky. Or onto your living room ceiling. Whichever is closer. Sounds like a perfect way to distract your opponent and pull a quick switcheroo when your game starts heading in the wrong direction. Crafty Batman. Always lookin' out.
