The Star Wars PocketModel TCG is a hot seller at retail locations nationwide

Jay Cochran - June 19, 2007
WizKids Inc., a subsidiary of Topps and the creator of runaway hit games such as HeroClix(R) and Pirates of the Spanish Main(TM), today announced that its Star Wars(TM) PocketModel(TM) Trading Card Game (TCG) is now available at retail. The Star Wars PocketModel TCG revolutionizes the collectible trading card genre by bringing card games into the third dimension. 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. This fun, easy-to-learn game is simple enough for 8-year-old kids, 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!

The Star Wars PocketModel TCG is a great value with its price tag of $4.99. Players receive between four-to-eight Star Wars vehicles to punch out, build, collect and play; six random game cards; 2 micro-dice; complete rules and assembly instructions. Star Wars fans are able to collect and build Star Wars vehicles that are played in entertaining ways with cards featuring favorite characters, vehicles and scenes from the entire Star Wars Saga. Players use the cards to control their fleets of PocketModel ships as they attempt to destroy each other's objectives. And with more than 200 Star Wars PocketModel vehicles and 300 cards being released over the next year, Star Wars fans will be able to constantly add to their collection to extend their Star Wars universe.

"Star Wars has multigenerational appeal and we've designed our Star Wars PocketModels to appeal to its passionate fan base," said WizKids(R) president Lax Chandra. "The Star Wars(TM) PocketModel(TM) TCG is easy enough for children but with layers of strategy for adults, and the game is affordable at under $5, so it's accessible to every Star Wars fan."

To celebrate the game's release, WizKids has launched a promotion that gives Star Wars fans across the country free sample packs of Star Wars PocketModels playing cards. Fans can visit, or for a link to a coupon redeemable at their local hobby retail store for free product samples. Sample packs contain three PocketModels (one X-wing(TM) fighter and two TIE Fighters(TM)), and two playing cards.
