Given the nature of Immediate Media's portfolio of children and youth titles it isn't surprising that the publishing company is going to leverage the popularity of its new LEGO Star Wars Trading Cards collection to promote sales of three of its magazines. After all, it is what Blue Ocean in Germany did.

In a similar vein to the monthly LEGO Star Wars Magazine published by Egmont, there are two LEGO titles that are being included in the co-promotion: LEGO Nexo Knights and LEGO Ninjago. The third publication is Mega Magazine, a comic full of games, activities, posters and competitions that is aimed at boy aged 7-10.


The table below shows the publishing schedule for the bonus cover-mounted LEGO Star Wars Trading Card booster packs. These are normal booster packs

These magazines typically sell for 4 so are a more costly purchase than the standard booster packs that are available for 1. Nor will the cover-mounted booster packs have any limited edition cards in them.

The traditional bottle of champagne has been broken on the bow of the latest addition the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series fleet and The Devastator has been officially launched. As a LEGO Star Wars fan and collector, how do you feel about this new UCS set?
Love it - definitely going to add one to my cart!
Wow - makes me wish I'd signed up to the VIP Rewards programme now!
It's great - now isn't the right time, but it's on my list!
I'm economising - will get it on clearance.
Not for me - too big/too expensive/too grey.
