I don't see how that's considered a chess set, it's only one side and even then it's missing seven pawns.
They do look nice though.

Toriko and Vegeta ones are the best.

Japan seems to do this a lot. Maybe they think you can collect a few different sets to make a proper board? Or it's just for display >.<

I'd like to have a full set like this, or maybe a DB vs OP one. One where you can just swap out either side kind of like Weiβ Schwarz would be amazing!

This is perhaps the strangest and yet coolest IRL fanfic ever. Piccolo and Chopper?! (The former has an appropriate "God why?" pose) Piccolo's holding a gun?! I actually want that, along with the Zoro/Shen Long piece. They'd make great figures on a desk anyhow. They should do this with other classic Jump series also.

The set will be produced by Megahouse (not Bandai), and it is exclusive to few stores within Japan (e.g. Megtreashop, Toei official store)
