The first Star Wars Miniatures game set, Rebel Storm, dropped in August 2004. The Clone Strike expansion, with Star Wars Episode I characters like Yoda, Darth Maul, and Anakin Skywalker, drops on December 3, 2004 but we have a game review now! For the 411 on collecting, trading and battling with these miniature game figs, check this game review out!

Star Wars Miniatures - Jedi Battling Game Basics

The Clone Strike expansion for the Star Wars Miniatures game is, basically, the same game as the Star Wars Rebel Storm. So, you can get the 411 on how to play, right here. The big difference is that you'll see Star Wars figs from the Episode I, II and III movies. Heroes like General Kenobi and Jango Fett come in the starter, and you can collect Mace Windu, Aurra Sing and Darth Tyranus in the boosters!

Star Wars Miniatures Clone Strike Coolness

Good news, the Clone Strike figs look even cooler than the Rebel Storm figs! Plus, you can collect famous characters like Padme Amidala, Darth Sidious and Qui-Gon Jinn. There are also hordes of battle droids, clone troopers, bounty hunters, Jedi and Sith. These figs have lots of powers, new effects and ways to build teams to win games with. Plus, some of the heroes and villains from Star Wars Episode III are in this set so you can check 'em out before the movie drops.

Star Wars Miniatures Clone Strike Expansion Flaws

A lot of the new characters rock, but the basic troops can be hard to use at first. The battle droids are weak without commanders to boost them up and the clone troopers are a bit too powerful for basic troops. There are a lot of really cool random aliens that make up for it, but it's hard to make a battle droid or clone army without getting a lot of figs.

Star Wars Miniatures Clone Strike Game Summary

The Clone Strike set can be a bit tricky for new players, but once you get the hang of it, it's awesome. Beginners should try the Star Wars Rebel Storm set, then grab Clone Strike figs to add even more heroes, aliens and strategy to your game!
