Now you can battle your chess two ways. Traditionally on a chess board or combine your powers to form the ultimate chess fighting robot.
Had this idea a while ago and the tinkercad Chess Contest gave me the perfect opportunity to make it happen. Having to use Tinkercad to make it happen was wonderfully educational too. It's a limited tool in many way and the limitations were in their own way liberating.
Carry your chess set to your next game in the coolest way possible.

Assemble by :
- Forming the head and body by sliding the queen's tab into the middle of the king and sliding down.
- Form shoulders by sliding in the two flat bottomed pawns into the body.
- Form feet and legs by mating two of the pawns base-to-base and attaching the knights to one end. Then join the legs to the body at the hips.
- Form the arms by mating one pawn base-to-base with the rook, and the bishop to the pawn. (Detail lovers will make sure the fingers are in the right place.) Then snap the rook into the shoulder pawn.
- Disassemble by reversing the steps to play chess.
