The Star Wars PocketModel trading card game (TCG) combines your favorite space units with all-new ground units in Ground Assault. From the notorious AT-AT to Spider and Tank droids, Ground Assault gives you new firepower to destroy your opponents objectives. Build your fleet with all ground units, all space units, or a mix of the two types. The Ground Assault Battle of Hoth Tin contains a tournament legal 30-card deck featuring characters from the Battle of Hoth, AT-AT, AT-ST, speeder bike, snow speeder, and Tauntaun PocketModels, and stationary rebel emplacements.

Exact contents of the tin is documented in this Thread :-

RRP is £10. They currently go for ~£4-5 on ebay.
This was in the Torquay store. I bought all 9 that they had out on display, but i'm sure they'll have more out-back; or in other stores.

will have to check my store, fingers crossed.

my son picked one of these up the other day, they also had other designs, the tin is nice

I bought three just to use the tins, keep all my pc bits in them

They are still in the Leeds store, but sold out in York. I bought two - they are very good for £1 as they usually worth £5.

Could you elaborate?

I'm aware they also have various Pirates of the Caribbean pocket model tins. (though these don't appear to be as in demand as the Star Wars tins)

Did they also have this tin?

If so - that's an even bigger bargain! As the limited edition 30th anniversary tin shown above typically goes for atleast £9 on ebay :w00t:

From what I have seen they do not have this tin - just the Battle of Hoth set.

quite difficult to make. no instructions. and breaks easily when trying to construct.
great as a tin though.
i only saw a battle of Hoth one.

I went to the Newcastle City center branch today and picked one up. They didn't have the Hoth tin, but they did have the one someone has picturered above. They also had some booster pack things; Scum and Villainy Thermal Detonation Theme Deck.

Does anyone know if you can play the game with these or are they not starter decks?

Yeah, it's possible.

For a normal game each player has 30 stars of units, and atleast 30 cards (of which about 1/3 should be objectives)
However, there are cut-down rules which allow the game to be played with as little as one booster pack per person (4-8 pocket models & 6 cards; hopefully with one of them being an objective).

However, you won't be getting anywhere near the full experience; coming up with a strategy, and then building a deck & fleet to work the strategy is where most of the fun comes from.
