This LEGO chess set by Derek Seiple is not only comprised of 4,000 LEGO pieces, but it also costs more than a MacBook Air! Derek Seiple makes each LEGO chess set by hand for pre-order, raking in $1,295 per board.

Regardless of the luxury price, the ultra-geeky LEGO chess set is a wildly genuine, outlandishly individualist piece that is totally worth it if you can afford it. The board is made with a SNOT (studs not on top) technique that is common amongst LEGO artists to ensure a smooth finish.
