Poor Assassin. And which one's the King?

If anyone wants the set, AmiAmi is selling it for ~$60.

"Each of the 998-yen, 90-centimeter-tall painted figures "

That's some mighty big chessboard and one heck of a size to yen value Anime hyper

Apparently Gilgamesh is the King, according to crunchyroll.

Kind of feel Assassin would have been a good choice for a pawn, spoiler[considering there are so many of them in Fate Zero. If they wanted to go really nuts, they could have each pawn based on a different version.] But sadly, with 7 Servants and only 6 types of chess pieces, someone has to get left out. It's also curious that they had Iri be the Bishop instead of Caster.
