Lucasarts Postcard for X-Wing: Alliance


Back in the nineties, LucasArts was a powerhouse of epic gaming, with many great titles under their belt. X-Wing (released in 1993), was an excellent “space combat simulator” well regarded by most players. It had two sequels in Tie Fighter (1994) and X-Wing: Alliance (1999).

X-Wing: Alliance box cover

In X-Wing: Alliance, you played as Ace Azzemeen, a pilot trader who’s family is killed by the Empire. Joining the Rebellion, you played multiple missions as a fighter pilot with the game culminating in you piloting the Millennium Falcon through the Death Star. I was genuinely useless at this game. 🙂 The games are still very enjoyable and you can download series from Steam for £22.

I won this promotional Lucasarts postcard on ebay for a princely £2. I believe that the seller has more available.

It’s good to see the RoTJ Death Star Battle as it’s one of the more underrated battles of the trilogy. The postcard itself is pretty dark, so the background is quite difficult to make out.

As furlough continues to take it’s bite, finding small bits like this are ideal to keep the momentum of my collection moving forward.

About mffanrodders

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related collectibles as it increases.

    haha, if that game would have just looked like it was promoted on the post card – well we know how it really looked back then.
    However, it’s one of my favorite Star Wars games of all time, with X-Wing Alliance Upgrade or not.
