Who still owns copies of both of these?

Recommended Posts

I am lucky to still have them all in my collection (although I never played the game because interest was low here in the Netherlands). I bought them for the enormous amount of background-info! Still love them for that!

The most recent FFG NDS Star Wars book covered Clone Wars, Rebels, & Rogue One... 

They have had issues getting permission for Ep VII; the beginner box may be all they were allowed, or they may be waiting for Ep IX, so they don't screw it up. An issue WEG had no issue with... WEG was even used by LFL as a "writer's bible" for the EU. (Mr Zahn mentioned this in an interview.)

The old novels are no longer canon, and new ones are probably off-limits...

Be happy they're allowing it at all... Disney cancelled the MHRP license, even tho' it was money in the bag. (Not enough, apparently, despite critical acclaim, and rapid fan adoption). Seems, now, that perhaps the lineup was too close to the upcoming movie sequence...

How can you screw up a screw up?
