Default 2017 Topps Star Wars Rogue One Series 2

Figured I would start an official thread for the upcoming Rogue One release on March 22nd.

I haven't seen any updates since the list of signers was released.

I've heard that Topps has "Sold Out" of series 2.

Anyone have any interest in this release?

Right now not a whole lot.
So far doesn't look much different than series 1.
I am more interested in 40th Anniversary and Galactic Files Reborn.
I got Series 1 cheap, and I don't want to pay current case prices of series 2.
Much like TFA1 vs TFA2, I don't see Series 2 being a huge hit.

I have to admit there needs to be some variation between sets and add some spice to it. While it was a good set nothing really stood out to me at all. I also and looking forward to the 40th Anniversary set way more than anything right now.

I agree that the card format does not separate itself from series 1. I believe they could make these variations and still be complementary and congruent with series 1.

They added a couple new signers which is good. Also not a huge fan of patch cards.

Delayed until April. Confirmed on Topps Facebook page. Unsure how this impact 40th or GF Reborn. One would assume a fair chance of knock on delays.

My guess is that it was pushed so it would release with or after the DVD release. They did confirm more info on sugar free coming this week tho!

I think 40th will stick with May due to the anniversary, May 4th etc.

2 years ago ESB Illustrated hit the week after Celebration Anaheim so they had an exclusive box for sale there and were able to hype it up. I wonder if this delay is only for the purpose of putting this release in a similar situation?

Edit...I see now that release is still the week before Celebration but hopefully there is still an exclusive set or at least promo cards released there

As far as delays go, 2 weeks isn't bad.

How do they not know the delay until 2-3 weeks out? That's nuts.

Also, wasn't FA 3D supposed to be late Feb.?

That's what it said in the magazine, but that's printed pretty far in advance.

I am a little surprised about that since there is little buzz about this product and more with the 40th product.

Print run should be pretty low with this set, and I have a case already ordered, but so far I am not that excited since it doesn't seem to be a whole lot different than series 1.

I hope more comes out about this product that changes my mind.

It does look very similar. Although it does have patch cards instead of medallions. And if the sketches are anything like series 1, that adds a lot of value for me.

I sure hope Topps is good on their word and gives us the checklist tomorrow.

I am a little excited, mainly because I just want to open a new product.
I don't expect a whole lot new with this set compared to series 1.

I have a case coming, but I think that is all I will go with.

Production has to be pretty low don't you think? Series 1 only had 7,654 hobby boxes. Series 2 should be below 9,000 boxes you would think.

Honestly, I'm kind of done with Rogue One and with Celebration in a couple weeks, I'm starting to anticipate The Last Jedi reveals.

Oh sure, I'm opening Rogue One Series 2. I didn't pull any of the big 3 autos in Series 1, so I'm hopeful. It just isn't as thrilling as it was 3 months ago.

I agree with every word of that actually. I think the biggest reason I'm looking forward to breaking this is that I will finally know which autos I need to pick up at SWCO. If I can get all of the new RO signers like I did in Series 1 then that is less time and $$ that I need to spend in the autograph hall!
