Jay Cochran - May 23, 2007
WizKids Inc., a subsidiary of Topps and the creator of runaway hit games such as HeroClix® and Pirates of the Spanish Main™, will debut its Star Wars™ PocketModel™ Trading Card Game (TCG) during Star Wars Celebration IV, the world’s biggest Star Wars party, at the Los Angeles Convention Center May 24 to May 28.
WizKids will have a substantial presence at Celebration IV event being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center (May 24-28) in booth (110#).
Star Wars™ PocketModel™ Trading Card Game revolutionizes the collectible trading card genre by bringing card games into the third dimension. The innovative PocketModels allow Star Wars fans to collect, build and customize Star Wars vehicles that are played in entertaining ways with cards featuring favorite characters, vehicles and scenes from the six-film Star Wars Saga.
Along with the debut of the Star Wars PocketModel TCG, WizKids will feature oversized (up to 3-feet tall) Star Wars vehicles for attendees to play with and battle each other. Two fleets of iconic Star Wars ships will battle as players use oversize cards featuring favorite movie characters to modify the action. Crowd members will be able to participate in the action by rolling huge dice, making battle decisions & physically moving the fleet around the play area. All crowd members will receive a free sample pack containing three PocketModels (1 X-wing & 2 TIE fighters) & two game cards. In addition, WizKids will be selling a special game tin that can only be purchased at the convention. This special tin will have scenes from all six Star Wars movies and will include 5 random game packs, plus an exclusive convention-only version of the Millennium Falcon.
By merging the enjoyment of building custom decks from card collections with the fun of building miniature models of Star Wars vehicles, the Star Wars PocketModel TCG lets Star Wars fans enjoy a complete Star Wars experience. Up to 8 players can simulate exciting Star Wars battles using cards to control their fleets of PocketModel ships in their attempt to destroy each other’s objectives. This fun, easy-to-learn game is simple enough for kids 8-years-old and up, but features enough depth of strategy to appeal to adults, making it possible for fans of all generations to share and enjoy battling for control of the galaxy!
