Although the game stopped production in mid-2010, it (like the StarWarsCustomizableCardGame before it) continues to have a dedicated player base, with numerous virtual sets in production.

continue to be produced, often based on newer ''Star Wars'' entries like ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' and ''Film/TheForceAwakens''.



* AwesomeYetPractical: The "[[EnsembleDarkhorse Boba Fett]], BountyHunter" miniature is considered by many to be one of the best in the game. Not only does he have the ability to OneHitKill enemy characters (a staple of many a sought-after character in ''a lot'' of collectible games), but he also has various abilities that [[LightningBruiser make him hard to kill himself while he zips around the board shooting away at enemy characters]].
** Generally, the more popular and iconic a character was, the more likely he/she was to have a particular figure that was powerful and useful in the metagame. [[SeriesMascot Darth Vader]] is another example, with most of his pieces being reasonably costed, useful for team support and/or powerful beatsticks in their own right to boot.



* BoringButPractical: As per the norm for collectible games, some pieces (such as Ugnaught Demolitionists and Mouse Droids) were low-costed utility characters that were considered staples on any team.



%%* MightyGlacier: Heavy Stormtroopers, Snowtroopers with E-Web Blasters, and various other pieces. Especially the Colossal AT-AT, which could only move a small number of squares, and only on certain turns too, but had the most HP of any piece in the game.

* BrokenBase: Several characters have divided the community over their supposed Over Poweredness, General Obi Wan Kenobi, General Wedge and Boba Fett Bounty Hunter to name a few. Also most recently the virtual sets have caused this as well.

''Star Wars Miniatures'', as the name suggests, was [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a collectible miniatures game based on the]] ''StarWars'' [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin universe]], first produced by WizardsOfTheCoast in 2004 as a tie-in for the DVD releases of the original trilogy movies. It used many of the same mechanics as the DungeonsAndDragons roleplaying and miniatures games. Really likes making people roll 20-sided dies, just like its sister game.

* Glass Cannon: Pretty much any character with the Heavy Weapon ability and many of the "scout" type peices.

to:

* Broken Base: AscendedMeme: Some figures have the passive ability to remove stealth from opposing units within 6 squares. Admiral Ackbar was the first figure with this ability, so it was named "It's a Trap!"
