Hot off the press, via Promobricks.de, is the news that the same German publisher who brings out the monthly LEGO Star Wars Magazine will be producing a collectible trading card game - coming out on August 11th.
To kick off the collection Blue Ocean will be including a cover-mounted starter pack in the August edition of the German language LEGO Star Wars Magazine, which is due out on August 1st.
Over the next half a year a total of 252 cards will be released. This will include 24 limited edition gold cards which will be distributed via a number of official LEGO magazines - though not necessarily the LEGO Star Wars Magazine. Promobricks has posted a distribution list of the above pictured cards:

The initial assortment will come out in the standard trading card starter pouches, and from September five blister packs will be released, followed by multi-packs in October. A series of three premium tinned collections are planned for later this year - presumably nearer Christmas.
It is not known whether these will be distruted outside of Blue Ocean's native German speaking audience, or if they will be translated into any other languages, yet.
