I am thinking about making a chess set of droid from the SW universe (molded). I would like suggestions on who would be the various pieces.
Also If anyone has a comprehensive list of all the droids to have appeared in the movies to date that would be very helpful. (please for the more obscure ones give a description/which movie/where in the movie did they show up.

Help fellow SW fans, your my only hope!:)

For a list of the droids, you can check the official site and get them there. The CDs Behind The Magic are another source for reference as well as the SW Encyclopedia. Chess you say? I did a couple of chess sets last year using the action figures.

I am thinking about this as if I were using action figures, so either I'd use action stands for one side and real stands for the other (since one type of stand is clear and the other is black) and just use one set of figures; or I'd go with these figures for light and dark sides of the board:

Light side:
FX-7 = King
Ep 1 C-3PO = Queen
2-1B = Bishop
R2-D2 = Knight
Treadwell droid = Rook
R5-D4 = Pawn

Dark side:
IG-88 = King
EV-9D9 = Queen
TC-14 = Bishop
R2-Q5 = Knight
Destroyer Droid = Rook
Security Battle Droid = Pawn

Thats pretty cool ACPin, what a nice way to get 8 Jar Jar figures off the pegs :)I was thinking about making a Star wars chess set the other day.

That way cool. I really like the anh chess board. I would like to make one. The only problem is that I blow at chess. I lose too many times on yahoo and really live.

There is something wrong with me after all.They all told me but I wouldn't believe them. :D

How about Leebo? You should try to fit him in! I think you should use the Droid Starfighter (walking mode) too! I also think you should replace the Mouse Droid with the ASP-7 droids.

Okay, I like the idea of walking droid SF's and would switch them with the destroyer droids who would then replace the pilot droids at the knight position.

as for the asp's, NO.

I was thinking the dark side droids are either imperial or bounty hunter droids.

The ASP is a "typical" labor droid. It might work for the pawn of the light side though instead of the pit droids.
