    I managed to find some Clone Wars pocketmodels at Walmart & Target. The packs go for $5.99 and don't include any dice with them. So we're actually paying more for less. :(

    I've bought 8 packs over the weekend and only found 1 rare between them all! I did find a card with 4 Jedi Starfighters on it, they are Ahsoka's, Anakin's, Plo Koon's, and Obi Wan's. :D This card is am uncommon. I also found the uncommon Republic Gunship with the bomber art of a Salicious Crumb type creature dropping bombs and I got 2 cards with STAP Droids on them, one was an uncommon. I'm still looking for the modified Rep. Gunship and Grevious's ship.

    I was in TRU in Newington today spending about $65 on Star Wars stuff. They had a monster Clone Wars display right at the front of the store! They had Clone Wars pocket model booster packs and battle packs (more cards and ships). They also had the large heavy foam table top pocket models (like the X-Wings that some of us got from the last tourney) of both Obi-Wan's and Grievous' starships. Other finds: moster sized Falcon and AT-TE. Movie posters. Legos, Mighty Mugs, Transformers, Clone Trooper talking helmet for $6 cheaper than Target. The list goes on...

    The Force Unleashed tin is now available at Jetpacks. They are 19.95 and include several exclusive units from the video game as well as 3 or 4 sealed packs from prior releases....not a bad deal considering single packs are now 5.99-7.99 at retail...

    They should be available elsewhere as well. Just trying to promote one of our "sponsors" They may even cost more at TRU or Target. The exclusives are the Rogue Shadow, Bull Rancor, and Rancor with felucian rider. Not sure abotu cards. There will also be several sealed packs in each tin from prior releases. I might pick mine up today, so I'l post the list once I get it.

    just tore into the Force unleashed tin. Here are the contents of the one I opened:

    Exclusives: Rogue Shadow unit with cloaking ablility (rules inset included for cloaking), bull ranor, and felucian rancor with rider

    One sealed Ground Assault pack
    One sealed base set pack

    3 "promo" type packs contained 2 sheets each from teh base set and dice. No cards with these. I believe these are random assortments with one common and one uncommon or rare sheet per pack.

    I picked up 3 tins, one for me, one for a neighbor, and one extra. Ralph sold them to me for $18 each -- $2 less than reatila price. It will go to the first person to PM me saying they are interested in buying it from me at cost.

    Hey Guy's,

    I have 12 extra pack of UNopened Star Wars Clone War Pocketmodel if anyone out there would like some? I came across them in a trade. I have a full set so do not really need them. If anyone out there would like them I will bring them to the meeting.

    They are $5 a pack. Sorry John... not free. lol

    But that is like a buck or 2 off the retail! Anyways I'll have them at the meeting on Saturday if anyone would like a couple packs.

    SeeYa,
    TK

    Hi eveyone!
    After trading to finish off my set on the pocketmodel site, I am now selling all of my extras that I have left. Take a look a few posts back to see if there is anything you want. Common cards and unit sheets are 3/$1, Uncommon cards and units sheets are 2/$1, rares are $1 each. Good bargains compared to ebay and there are no shipping costs! PM me with what you want. In about a week, I will go ahead and list them on ebay, so let me know soon!

    Are all your extras just from the Clone Wars or do you have some from the other sets?

    I have EXTREMELY bad news.....

    The Topps Company is announcing today that it is closing down WizKids, its core hobby gaming business, and temporarily discontinuing the WizKids product lines. Topps CEO Scott Silverstein commented, ?This was an extremely difficult decision. But in light of the current economic conditions, we feel it is necessary to align our gaming initiatives more closely with Topps current sports and entertainment offerings which are already being developed within our New York office.? WizKids is based in Seattle, Washington.

    In its statement announcing the closing of WizKids, Topps also indicated that it was pursuing ?strategic alternatives so that viable brands and properties, including HeroClix, can continue without any noticeable disruption.?

    Founded by Jordan Weisman in 2000, WizKids launched the first successful collectible miniatures game (CMG), Mage Knight, and also produced the first constructible strategy game (CSG), Pirates of the Spanish Main, in 2004. In addition to the successful comic book-based HeroClix CMGs, WizKids also released the Star Wars Pocket Model Game in 2007.

    WizKids was purchased by Topps in 2003 (see ?Topps Acquires WizKids?), while Topps itself was acquired by Michael Eisner?s Tornante Company and Dearborn Partners in 2007 (see ?Topps Sold!?).

    ----

    Not sure what this means for the SW Pocketmodel game, but it can't be good....

    Might it mean that the pocket models that we currently have will soon be more valuable? Maybe Steve should hold on to those ones that he is about to sell... And maybe we should buy up all those extra ones that we see at the stores. By the way, I saw a combo pack with at least three card packs from different releases at TRU in Concord today, along with the Force Unleashed tin.

    In my experience (Decipher's SWCCG, Wizard's SWTCG, WWE Raw Deal, X Files CCG, etc), when a game tanks, the value of the cards/commodity drops usually in the first month. The good thing is that if you still play the game some good deals can be found especially on ebay.

    Thanks for the heads up John.

    That kinda sucks! Oh well... at least one good thing will come from it. lol Like you said. When a game tanks the prices $$$ go in our favor. lol So hopefully we can all find some great deals soon.

    I guess we do have to wait to see what happens to the line. Maybe someone else out there will pick it up? who know? There all ways hope...

    SeeYa,

    Are the packs out in general retail? I can't remember seeing them at Target, and definitely not at Wally World

    I saw them at Target a few weeks ago. Target is also carrying the exclusive Scavenger Pack with the Vulture's Claw, the trandoshan junk collecting ship from teh cartoon. I haven't found that yet, so if anyone sees it, please pick one up for me!
