Seattle, WA October 7, 2008—Clone Wars may no longer be showing on the big screen, but that doesn’t mean that the Jedi Knights and Storm Troopers are taking a vacation in a galaxy far, far away. WizKids, a Topps company, is pleased to announce that their latest Star Wars™ PocketModel™ trading card game (TCG) release, Clone Wars: Tactics, will arrive at toy stores and hobby shops across the universe this November, shortly after the debut of the highly anticipated Clone Wars series on Cartoon Network and the same week that the Clone Wars DVD is released.

Giving players sneak peeks from the television series, Clone Wars: Tactics PocketModel TCG offers imaginative game play for the whole family through building models, collecting cards, and challenging each other to games.

Clone Wars: Tactics is a fun, family friendly and affordably priced game – the ideal stocking stuffers for generations of Star Wars fans."
