A photo of the Sonic chess set

Speaking of Gaya Entertainment's line of classic Sonic stuff, they have more than just concept art for the chess set now, with this photo above (click to enlarge). They seem respectable enough molds and bonus points for using the old design of Amy Rose, but I still think it would have been 10 times better if the other side of pieces consisted of Robotnik, Metal Sonic and a bunch of badniks. The rings kind of look like those cheap ring shaped crisps you'd get from Happy Shopper at School lunch time.

Honestly, that does look quite underwhelming. The fact that both sides are exactly the same and everything looks very plasticy... who knows, maybe they'll tweak it a bit.

With any luck they're not too expensive, then it won't be so bad. I would only be having one set of them out on a shelf anyway.

I think that it should be something like one side is Classic Sonic characters (With the classic chaos emerald) and the other side Modern Sonic characters (With the diamond-like Chaos Emerald)
That would be awesome.
