The Trade Federation #72
On this week’s episode of The Trade Federation, Brent tells Joe and bill all about Star Wars CCG. Originally created by Decipher, the Star Wars collectible card game is now overseen by a players committee. Almost as old as Magic the Gathering, Star Wars CCG has a rich history.
In the news, the crew previews the upcoming Batman/TMNT Adventures from IDW Publishing. A comic book based on Batman the Animated Series and Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can only be good, right? They also talk about the numerous reports of Rogue One Hasbro figures showing up early (and at discount prices) at Walmart and other grocery stores. Finally some new covers for Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn Trilogy are on there way later this month
