If you think about it, the LEGO 'Empire Strikes Back' chess set is not just two times the geekiness, but three. It combines the building block pastime with a sci-fi obsession and a strategy game.

Designed by Brandon Griffith of Los Angeles’ Lego User Group LUGOLA, the LEGO Empire Strikes Back chess set is impressively intricate. Featuring characters from Episode V, you can spot Imperial Walkers, the AT-ATs and Darth Vader among others. For more images, visit Flickr.
