I like it, it's fun. It's better than just pulling something random out of the air.

The OT had plenty of names that were tuckerizations of cast and crew. Of course a lot weren't named until many years later, though.

Well guess my Dennyís there are not to many Star Wars fan.. they said hardly anyone has bought packs. We bought 15 with 2 meals... real good mix. Was able to get 2 full sets from the 15 packs. Even the left overs, no repeats. Think we will be eating Dennyís a bit. No foil though.

I was able to buy eight when I was there. I got the impression not too many people were requesting them and she was more than happy to unload whatever and ignore the 3 per person max. I am going to get some more on saturday.

I got one set and four dupes, so it seemed like good collation to me. No foils though. I am going to try to finish off the second set and call it good. I am not sure the foils are worth trying to get. Ebay pricing is outrageous for them right now. Even at "half off" current ebay prices, the 12 cards would run over $1500. Not even remotely worth it at those price points.

At the denny's I go to, they have let me buy the cards without any other purchase or limits. Also, when I can, I just take the packs sequentially from the box. I assume they are pretty much going to be in order and so far it has held true (i.e. 6-packs in a row is one set).

Who'd have guessed that promo parallel cards from a diner would be more valuable than 99% of non-hit cards from the last 3-4 years of hobby releases? Lol

I'm really curious on the print run here. Anyone know how many packs each store got? We could get close if we assumed like 100 per store and then according to Google there's 1,593 locations, so only 133 foil sets, assuming they were evenly made. They aren't numbered, right?

My cousin tells me there's no limit at his local Denny's. I gave him a 20% discount card from one of the packs and asked to pick me up 5 packs, so I should get those tomorrow. Hoping for those last 3 cards I need for my set in there, and obviously, a foil. If I can finish the set, I'll be good with my 11 total packs. Whatever, I had an 11% chance at a foil, all things being equal, and that's good enough for me. The cups with the Falcon topper are pretty cool, but I've already got too much of that kind of stuff.

Topps guy on twitter said that checklist wont come out until May 25 due to alleged Disney embargo. That isn't unheard of, but with all the characters' names being released already, it seems overkill.

None of the restrictions on cards make sense. I remember how rare it was for TFA images to be used for Topps when any store you went to on Force Friday 9/1 has TONS of merch and posters and stuff with the amd images Topps wasn't allowed to show.

I could understand the base card checklist not being shown as card titles could give plot details away, but the signers are really what anyone care about and I'm 99% sure anyone they've got we have either seen already in some action figure or comic or is so un-relevant that no one could possibly care (trooper #5).

I can understand it. Itís not only character names and images but the titles of the movie scene cards that would be listed on a checklist. Iím still sorry that I read the track titles on the back of the TPM soundtrack in 1999 before the moviesí release date.

I understand that, but they could release names of signers without spoiling anything.

They want to keep the fact that Paul Kasey is signing as Therm Scissorpunch and 5 other aliens a super secret.

If they actually got a majority of the cast for this like they did for Rogue One, this could be a badass set.

I would say they’ll definitely have Alden and the new Chewbacca. Warwick Davis is in this so he’ll have a card. But the rest are up in the air. Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Glover, Emilia Clarke? What are the chances for each of those guys?

This set could have an amazing auto lineup with even 2/4 I just listed.

Yup, 100% this. They'll sell far more product based on speculation than an actual checklist

Topps said on their Facebook page that they have some great news to share for the new Solo cards. Hopefully they actually deliver.

Topps authentics just listed several photos of the star actors, but none of them are signed, so not sure what to take from that.

The announcement is that Topps knows how tired everyone is about having medallions and patches in all of their products so they will not do that to the dedicated collectors that have stuck with all of the Star Wars releases. In lieu of those cards there will be replica playing card cards and coin cards (not screen used) that will count as hits in the product to pay homage to the gambling scene.

Definitely a group buy or not at all. I'm going to pass on this one, might have got suckered in if they'd kept the blue starfield borders.

Dennys did it better lol. These kind of sets are annoying for a few reasons:

1. Were have the full movie release within days of this ending

2. They're charging $10/card!!!

3. For fixed number sets like this they should offer a buy em all option because last I checked they weren't in the business of shipping to make money

4. This would be better served for a joke movie release like TLJ On Demand.

This type of single day release really shouldn't happen outside of sports where there's some big play or milestone to commemorate. A movie or show are just that and get a set release and it's done.

If anything they should do a legacy/running set going forward, like the digital app had, for galactic moments and have them be for the release in theaters and on DVD and if there some record broken by the film.

10 dollars per card? I actually can't believe people buy these. I've only been collecting for a few months, but I bet a year down the line you'll be able to buy the whole set for 20 bucks.
