Star Wars: Card Trader Wiki


This page archives the history of images used for the "splash" screen when launching the Star Wars: Card Trader digital App. It's the first image the user sees before continuing to the loading screen. The image changes periodically, following a big event such as a major software update or launch of a new Base series.

Please note: the list is incomplete and not all images have been captured. Some images are difficult to track down, as they are no longer available within the app and there is no official archive of these images easily accessible online. The list will continue to be updated as more information and images are found.
