Collectible chess set with Dr Who theme and lenticular printing!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

What makes this Dr Who chess set cool is the lenticular printing on the pieces. Each piece has two pictures of the character inside and they morph as you move them. Each set includes 32 lenticular animated chess pieces and the game board with the Pandorica symbol on it. Lenticular printing is a technology in which a lenticular lens is used to produce images with an illusion of depth, or the ability to change or move as the image is viewed from different angles.

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. The programme depicts the adventures of a time-travelling humanoid alien known as the Doctor who explores the universe in a sentient time machine called the TARDIS that flies through time and space, whose exterior appears as a blue police box. Along with a succession of companions, he faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations, help people, and right wrongs.

The ultimate chess set for fans of Doctor Who. Good guys team includes: 11th Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, River Song, the TARDIS, and the Judoon
Bad guys team includes: Weeping Angel, Supreme Dalek, Cybermen, Silurian General Restac, Smiler, and the Pandorica
Board looks like it's engraved with the pattern from the Pandorica
Officially licensed Doctor Who chess collectible.

    I like the lenticular printing bit. I have a star trek chess set. The only problem with collectibles is you don't want anyone else to touch them. Too precious.
