Star Wars Trading Cards – The Limited Editions

The publicity surrounding the new LEGO Star Wars trading card collection was bit limited in the run up to their release last Friday (August 31st) but Immediate Media has become aware that there is a growing demand from outside of their traditional markets, and has reached out to the LEGO and Star Wars collecting communities to pass on information.

The new collection of 252 cards will be decorated with the same LEGO-ised versions of Star Wars characters, vehicles, planets and classic scenes that we’ve become used to through the numerous media platforms that LEGO has utilised, starting with the first LEGO Star Wars Video Game back in 2005 (incidentally the last time a LEGO Star Wars computer title was released in the same year as a movie).

The bulk of the cards are being released through three series in booster and multipacks and will number in the tens of thousands, meaning that there won’t be a shortage of nearly 95% of collection. However there will be 20 cards that are going to be released outwith these avenues and will be printed in limited numbers.
