Produced by the'Red Dragon Kipple Company' created by Rick L. Ross is a talented pro-craftsman & passionate BLADE RUNNER enthusiast, based in the USA. Exquisitely detailed, hand-crafted & hand-painted includes a unique "aged & weathered" Wood Crate. These chess sets were available for order from year 2011 in a very limited edition size; production ceased many years ago. Only a very small number of these beautiful deluxe crated chess sets were produced - final edition size is unknown to me.
Sebastian's chess set in the 1982 BLADE RUNNER movie, these chess birds have a wonderful realistic appearance and are full of interesting ambience & character. The Wood Crate is a great display item, an ideal adjunct to the Birds Chess Set with a style befitting the'world of BLADE RUNNER'. Rick Ross spent a long time dedicated to developing this special version of the birds chess set; a project spanning approximately three years. Extensively researched and designed, the chess pieces were meticulously hand-sculpted in clay with intricate detail.
Then moulds were made in order to produce the final chess pieces for release. The production chess pieces are made of a strong composite mix; mineral-filled polymer. They are'bottom-weighted' and the underside has felt pads. Quite weighty, solid pieces; tallest are approx. 4.5 to 5 inches high.Each piece has it own velvet lined pull-string bag for safe storage inside the Wood Display Crate. Hand finished & polished, painted'Antique Red' and a realistic'Old Ivory' colour, e ach piece has a small "RR" insignia stamped at the base (Rick Ross) with "08" next to it (year 2008), when the chess pieces were in their development and clay-modelling phase. Like new condition, mostly stored in the original box hence listed as "Brand New". One owner, this Deluxe Crated Birds Chess Set, acquired in 2011 has been well looked after; briefly kept inside a display case in a dust & smoke free environment. A very scarce collector's item and a strikingly appealing display piece.
