      Yes! If it were like that, I’d buy it in an instant. I don’t want to pay for paper images.

      I believe they are more than just paper, Mr fusion had said they are Lenticular which put a whole different perspective on it

    • booboo

      May 26th, 2011 - 7:34pm

      It was on one website months ago who couldn’t be bothered to reply to my enquiry about it therefore it wasn’t put on the site. now that more polite and helpful sites have it we have featured it but it was never fake

    Not getting this as i think they could have gone a bit further than just stuck pictures of the characters on.

    My main focus right now is on series 5-6 wave 1 and the Doctor Who monopoly

    I think this set looks a bit boring and may not be brilliantly made. They would have been better shaping the chess pieces to a character than just using pictures.

      Remember the feature page on the old Doctor Who chess set, well that was way better than this.

      what they should do is have Character building figures instead of the pieces they’ve designed
