These are the only cards I want from Tek... unless he finally signs her full name.

Over time I might attempt all her patterns.

The checklist breaks it down most on card and most big names on sticker in short

Yeah pretty much there are only 2 big names that are on card: Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley

We are now exactly 1 week away. I still have zero idea what the production run is. I have to assume that it is lower than last year, since most products have been down due to lower demand and preorders.

However even if they cut production by 10-20% it probably won't be enough.

Actually, release date has moved up to 12/14 on this one. My distributor already has it in stock!

Oh really wow! I though Topps just accidently posted the incorrect date.

3 new signers, I'll probably pick up Tosin Cole since I've got all the other new FA people so far, maybe Da Silvia.
Tosin Cole ** as Lieutenant Bastian
Christina Da Silva ** as Rabe
Julie Dolan ** as Princess Leia Organa


I'm also intrigued by Sidon Ithano being in the Living Tek insert set. I thought he was just a bounty hunter like Boba, curious what his "Tek" is. I don't think he's a droid.
List is updated, 4 new signers (Crystal Clarke has been clarified as new)

Sigh ...

*** EDIT *** - in the autos section there's one signer that's not listed in the base cards as far as I can see

Crystal Clarke as Ensign Pamich Nerro Goode

I'm guessing this is the missing card #74?
#74 is now showing as Ensign Goode in the main checxklist

Looking again, 5 are marked as New Signers - but one of these is Alan Ruscoe who signed as Lot Dodd in the AOTC 3D Wide set. So really he should be a 'First Time signing as new character'.

Jyn Erso is in it, and there's some Imperial troopers (death trooper, possibly some others)

Looking at the checklist and comparing it to last year, they kept the SPs at 15 for both releases and inserts only increased from 40 total to 41.
SPs only fell about 1 in 2 cases last year I believe and inserts were only about 1.3 per case.

I personally would like it to be 1 SP per case and 2 inserts #/50.

That would mean there would be 12,300 boxes made, which normally would sound about right, but they did make around 18,000 boxes last year.

I suspect the production will be down this year since the preorders had to be lower, but probably more in the 15,000 box range is my guess.

Anyone know what a factory direct case of High Tek 2 is from Topps?

There are several more cases of High Tek 2 on Ebay compared to Rogue One Series 1.

There are not a ton, but very few Rogue One cases for presale on Ebay at this point.

Here are all the colors of one pattern that Topps has released so far. Not looking forward to learning all the patterns after the first release

So dumb how TOPPS won't release the Rogue One S1 checklist til Friday. At least tell us the signers :/

Perhaps they will at least give us a pattern guide for High Tek 2, in their effort to be more transparent?

For the life of me I don't get some people who claim they are running a business, then do stupid crap like this.

2016 Topps Star Wars High Tek Sealed Hobby Box PRESELL For 12/14 Hi Tek AUTOS | eBay

At that price, with free shipping they are losing roughly $5-$6 per box sold.

I am really starting to be convinced that people are using Ebay to launder money.

I asked houdini if he was doing a GB of Tek this year. Last years was pretty fun... and cheap.

I think it was 1 spot for each box hit... 1 spot for each insert set... and 1 spot for each base card (you get all parallels of that card).... like 140 spots cuz I think it was 2 cases.

Think it's like $12 or so a spot.

I'm getting a case shipped from my distributor today. I'll post the results in the box break section. Hopefully it's good *fingers crossed*

I really enjoyed his random character across four cases. Would definitely join in on that if it was as cheap as it was last year (I didn't even hit anything and I enjoyed it).
