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.

Legendary Encounters: A Predator Deck Building Game looks like it’s going to be $59.99 worth of pure awesome. The 600 card set will have characters you know and love from Predator and Predator 2, including Dutch, Blaine, Mac and Dillon. Players must work together to take down the Predator.

Is it too much to hope for to have this expanded to Predators?

As usual, this set will be compatible with all other Legendary Encounters sets. You know what that means, right? Alien vs Predator. It can totally happen. I’m in love.

Legendary Encounters Alien Deck Building GameAfter teasing some limited information at Gen Con, Upper Deck made official this week its plans for Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game. In fact, the company announced an expanded licensing arrangement with Twentieth Century Fox that will produce “trading cards, trading card games, stickers and sticker books” for the Alien, Predator, and Firefly franchises.

Regarding Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game, Upper Deck explained:

While the game can be played on its own, Upper Deck is working to incorporate certain elements from the Marvel Legendary Deck Building Game to be compatible with the new Alien game.
