So, do you think replicas will be sold? Would love a set myself. They look awesome.

I can't be the only one to want to play chess with these pieces?

Re: Beorn's Chess Pieces

Nice found Iceclimber,indeed they look awesome and yes i like nice chess set
this is funny because the hedgehog piece is the exact item inside Bilbo's chest in AUJ prologue.I previously thought it was some sort of a beaver/squirrel stamp.



Another souvenir from his aventure and meetings

Re: Beorn's Chess Pieces

I believe its a hedgehog. I don't need the entire set, but I'd buy a few. There great souvieniers from Bilbo's travels.

I never noticed the Mirkwood Gaol Key in Bilbo's chest until now. What a great picture of some of the treasures found in Bilbo's chest Seregon13, thanks for sharing.

Sorry Iceclimber, chess has never been my game, it is a nice chess set, you are definitely correct there.

Re: Beorn's Chess Pieces

I never saw that either, will definitely be something I will pick up, probably will order it with Radagast next week.

Here is a larger picture of Bilbo's chest.

They look nice but if it ain't Staunton, I won't touch it

Re: Beorn's Chess Pieces

Thanks so much for the larger/more complete Bilbo's chest picture N2Darkness.

Wonder what else Weta is planning on bringing to the light of day from that chest?

This I know for sure, I will be fun finding out.

Re: Beorn's Chess Pieces

I think PJ stole the design for Bilbo's chest from your display, N2.

Re: Beorn's Chess Pieces

The full set pic can be seen on page 47 of THE HOBBIT THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG
Official Movie Guide by Brian Sibley. A nice article accompanies the pic.

Interesting to note is the book says that the sharp eyed would notice a bear(king) piece in Bilbo's chest from an unexpected journey. Thanks to N2s pic, we see that the piece is actually a hedgehog (pawn).

Re: Beorn's Chess Pieces

Definitely a good choice for the queen. If they don't end up selling a set of these, I will have to break out my wood carving set and get to work posthaste.
