star wars minimatures have been going for about 4 or 5 years maybe less.  there is 8 sets so far.  Most of wich are now out of print.  Game play is more or less like axis and allies (witch I collect as well.)  The game is cool but if your going to collect it do it by case its cheaper in the long run.

i was at one of the local comic shops the other day, and they had this display case full of minis and stuff. unfortunatly, some of them were 10$ for one little fig :scared0008:
i also noticed that each mini had a card with it. could someone explain what the point of the cards are? are they like the old TCG game?(one of the few games i actually like)

The cards have the figures stats on, hit points and so forth.
see pic below...

Also some minis can go for $60-$80 each!!!,,, thats why I decided to get out of collectign them. Prices to try and complete an old set where stupid, in my opinion.
They where good to cut up and customise.
I am working on a customised AT-AT colosal from the Minis range.
See pic's below..




if you need any more info check out the wizards of the coast web site.

got my first pack today, of the new set. got an ewok warrior, snivvian fringer, talz spy, stormtrooper,  ithorian commander, rebel pilot, and han solo on tauntaun. are these good? according to the booklet that came with the set, han solo+tauntaun is very rare.

also, PM sent on the COTF sets :)`

Han solo is a great catch, in my first ever box of minis I bought I got Luke On TaunTaun.
I have a couple of the poster set lists, if interested.

just found a really awsome local store, they had lots of mini's as well as some TCG sets. they even had some older sets, like COTF( unortunatly, they don't accept unleashed figures as trades, unlike you,FM ;) )
