Update I am now building these and selling these on my Etsy! So if you don't have a printer yet, I will be happy to print you one! Check it out at https://www.etsy.com/listing/109657227/
Update 2: I've been making a lot of little changes that I realize I never uploaded here. So now I have. V3.1 for your consuming pleasure. All pieces are now the latest version. If you want the old version, I don't know why, you can still get the plate.
Featuring improved couplers for easier assembly and disassembly, better proportions and appearance, and a more printable design.
Carry your chess set to your next game in the coolest way possible.

Assemble by :
- Forming the head and body by sliding the queen's tab into the middle of the king and sliding down.
- Form shoulders by sliding in the two flat bottomed pawns into the body.
- Form feet and legs by mating two of the pawns base-to-base and attaching the knights to one end. Then join the legs to the body at the hips.
- Form the arms by mating one pawn base-to-base with the rook, and the bishop to the pawn. (Detail lovers will make sure the fingers are in the right place.) Then snap the rook into the shoulder pawn.
Disassemble by reversing the steps to play chess.
