Yes! Was really hoping they'd do this set, I'd heard talk they weren't going to. I love these "Journey To" sets.

Looks pretty nice except for the design of that triple auto. Rey, Kylo, and Finn are all just kind of peaking out from behind their stickers. Still, looking forward to this set, and I hope it has some images from TFA that haven't been included in any other sets yet.

I like the retro feel for the base set.

So is the whole set going to be TFA based with maybe some trailer shots from TLJ thrown in?


I love that there is finally a Rey/Kylo/Finn triple but I'm not too keen on the layout.


Also I would love it if this is the first release after 40th Anniversary. A 4 month break between products would be refreshing. This last break between Rogue One Series 1/High Tek and Rogue One Series 2 sure has been.

There was supposedly a FA 3D WV set someone posted about being released end of Feb, obviously that wasn't the case, but I could see a summer/July release for that, which isn't a full new product but rather a set, yet something to keep people buying in the meantime.

2017 has been better for the spacing of products and not so much overload.
That is 1 improvement by Topps, now let's make a few more!

I have mixed feelings about this set. I liked JtTFA, but this seems like it could be a rehash. Assuming that a TLJ trailer drops at Celebration, that should give Topps plenty of lead time to get some new images for the set. I just wish that TLJ themed hits are included. It makes no sense that these sets are timed to come out along with Force Friday (when the big merchandising push kicks off), but new movie sketches and autographs are no-nos

I hope that Topps tries to get more TFA/TLJ talent for autographs. Where is my Gwendolyn Christie as Captain Phasma auto????? She signed enough for GoT.

^^^^ Exactly

Even with Rogue One coming out in December and High Tek 2 and MW2 being dropped after Force Friday we had zero R1 in MW2 and what, like 2 cards in Tek2?

It boggles the mind how the toys, clothing, posters, anything you can slap a star wars label on can show characters and images, yet the cards get shut out and we have these stupid split sets.

There's ZERO reason to split movies into 2 base sets, all it does it allow for duplication on base cards and inserts and R1 as a base set and insert set was horrendous with no story details and inserts missing numbering. It's just a poorly executed cash grab. If it wasn't for the sketches and big name signers R1 would've crashed and burned based on quality.

The disappointing part is this set is just Force Awakens S1 & S2 in throwback design with MAYBE 10 TLJ base cards, 20 if we're lucky.

They'd have a better set by waiting until after Ep 9 and doing Ep7-9 and the two spin-off movies as one 110 card set.


AND will we finally get a "Death of Han Solo" card??? I'm guessing Disney doesn't want to allow that card or it would've showed up in FA S2 or Chrome.

More like Journey to the saturation of Daisy autos. Topps really knows no bounds. They're doing to non-sports what they've done to sports.

The more Daisy autos the better!

While I'm sure those who own her auto(s) would prefer her value stays high, don't forget these will likely be stickers coming up, I doubt they can continue on-card autos for one of the biggest current names, though I wish it was on-card for all.

I'd love nothing more than to pull a Hamill at Tim Rose levels of quantity or have a reasonable shot at Ford or Ridley.
