Let me start off by saying I love Big Trouble in Little China. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched the movie, growing up a child of the 80’s. That being said, I feel this Legendary Core Set is…a bit weird.

Aliens? OK. Predator? Awesome. Firefly? Shiny!

Big Trouble in Little China? I don’t know. It could be really awesome, but Legendary Core Sets are a big expense to take a gamble on something like this. I’m not really digging the box art, either.  I want it to be good, but it seems a little ridiculous. I mean, it could be pretty funny mixing this with other sets, but again, that’s a big gamble.

The game hits shelves in August for $50, and will contain 350 cards with original art.
