    I haven't collected them actively since Champions of the Force. I only got a few from Bounty Hunters and Force Unleashed. They have a new set coming out now and another later this year. They will also discontinue RPGs and cards, I believe.

    I just hope it doesn't make the prices sky-rocket. There are a bunch of individual Rares, etc. that I hoped to get online or whatever, eventually...

    Posted at Wizards.com:

    Wizards of the Coast has decided not to renew the Star Wars license with Lucasfilm. We?ve had a long and fantastic run, but with the economic downturn, we have made the tough decision to discontinue our Star Wars lines.

    The license officially ends in May this year, with WotC product available through August. In the meantime, we have awesome new products still coming your way. This week, we released The Dark Times minis and Galaxy of Intrigue RPG. We?ll have more coming with Masters of the Force minis in April, which will have some of your most favorite characters along with rare creatures from the Dejarik Holochess game that have never appeared in our game. We?ll also release The Unknown Regions RPG in April, which includes entirely new planets and mini-adventures for each world.

    We are finishing the line with a bang so look for special programs at your local game store to stock up on favorite sets before they go into the vault. We will continue to support our Star Wars forums on the Wizards Community site so you can reach out and chat with us and other fans.

    While I know the news is disappointing, we wanted to make this announcement as soon as possible and thank you for being such great fans. It?s been a fantastic ride with the Star Wars community and working with Lucasfilm. We hope you enjoy the next several months of great products. You never know when we may circle back again!

    The above is quoted from Yoda's News and contained a link to Wizards of the Coast.

    Interesting. I don't see anything about the cards. Are they still doing those, then?
