A New Hope: Black & White
I think Sugarfree, though direct from Topps, should be added to that list.

Are we considering the 3D-WV their own animal?

Th cycle is getting crazy. Give it 3-4 weeks and this thread will be abandoned and you’ll all be on the next set release. I just wish we had time to collect and enjoy a release. I quite like black and white imagery so hopping the cards come out nice. Big autos will be incredibly hard to hit though.

Besides solo and TFA s2, has anything else been announced for 2018?

Maybe rogue one 3D WV? Or MW4, Tek4, Stellar 2: electric boogaloo

I'm sure there will be more Galactic Files.

Topps cannot make another High Tek this year, it just doesn't change enough to make each year.

I don't care if they add more people from Last Jedi or Han Solo, it should only be made every 3 to 5 years at most.

Yeah, right? Tek 2 and 3 and Masterwork 2 and 3 didn't need to exist, yet those have become yearly.

I've said this each year, they only add a handful of new characters and keep way too many from the prior year. At least Tek 3 this time focused half the set on R1 characters versus a 10 card addition, but in turn didn't include any TLJ images.

Topps greatly needs to adjust the releases to fall after the movie dates for non-movie specific sets so they aren't reusing the same material multiple times.

I've also seen multiple articles online regarding Superhero and now Star Wars fatigue. While I know I'll still go see every movie released, as a collector it will break a ton of people and drive them away. Hasbro is bombing right now and decided to not do these big toy releases 3 months in advance anymore as the hype isn't there yet and more and more movies are dropping that they cannot keep up with new cool figures like they used to so instead we get like 4 Rey and zero droids/aliens per movie. Also, it was pointed out with too much coming in, you don't have the time to appreciate what's there and disect it, so while Moroff from R1 would be the new Wampa or something, he is instead a mere thought and then onto the new aliens.

Like others have also said, once Topps lost the NFL license they have to get their revenue someplace else.

They'd be best served to have never made GF Reborn and instead made it a series 3 focusing on the new movies and Rebels and then every two or three years release another expansion set to it.

Also, they WILL and you'll buy into the breaks regardless haha

It's about time on Star Wars Galaxy. They have a lot of new art to use for it, Episode 7 and 8 plus Rogue One and even Solo, by the time the set is out. I hope they continue the base set double-numbering. It think it's up in the 800's after Galaxy 7, the most recent. Good news for sure.

That would be fantastic. No relics, same card stock as the older sets and setup...and hopefully some really cool sketch cards.

Agreed. I think the key is looser restrictions on sketches for this set. That would help the market. I'm excited to see base cards done by all the new artists from the past couple years

Finest all on card
or
Ginter

would be fun

I am bored out of my mind with SW

Although i am excited for Solo product.. if it is only autos and sketches from this movie.. it should be really good...

I am surprised Blowout is out of stock for cases of this.
I realize they can easily restock and will, but still surprised me.
Also what is with the new layout and look of the site?
I hate it and it looks really cheap!

Post in the thread your guess for the case count. In keeping with the theme I will give away a black and white sketch to whoever gets the closest. Same rules as last time. Please don't PM guesses to me. Please post them here.

Let's set a deadline of 10:00PM EST on February 7th. Good luck.
Was my guess of 1,040 the closest to the actual of 1,057?
Guess we should wait until release date for others to validate the pack odds.

Looks too much like a competitors website.

Yep, you are the closest. I don't think we need to wait. If you'll PM me your address I'll mail the sketch Tuesday when the post office opens back up. Grats!

How do you think most listings will appear on Ebay?
This is a long name for a product, so it doesn't leave much room for the actual card name.
Will people use ANH or B&W as acronyms?

The only constant is nothing is constant. Some people never put the set name, some use their own acronyms, and so on and so on.

B&w would be the logical route. ANH will likely pull in some cards from 40th. I’d say you’ll need a lot of exclusions in your search too like “-40th”

Using A New Hope or ANH seems unnecessary to me. This is the only B&W set so I would just use “2018 Topps Star Wars Black & White B&W.......” saving the rest of the characters for the card description.
