After some time in the making, DC Collectibles has released the perfect game for Gaimanites. Feast your eyes on Death, Dream, Destiny et al in all their glory in this stunning Sandman chess set.
Crafted by expert figurine sculptor Paul Harding with designs by Kevin Nowlan, the gorgeous, intricate pieces are made from cold-cast porcelain, set on a black and white wooden game board. Check out the beautiful close-ups on Harding’s blog here.
Naturally, the price tag on the set isn’t exactly negligible – you can pick it up for $291.26 (a little under £187) on Amazon (though Neil himself exhorts people to buy from local comics shops where possible) but it’s a relatively small price to pay to possess your own exquisitely realised Endless. It’s also a limited edition item, so if you want one, be sure to get your hands on it quickly while you still can.
I think this actually warrants rolling out an OMG! Or at least a wow… https://t.co/mNH7vyXZ16
