I was at Walmart the other day and I noticed they had a single blister pack (2 packs inside) of 2015 Topps Star Wars Journey To The Force Awakens hanging on a peg so I grabbed it. I like the set but I have not opened any packs so I wanted to take a closer look and bought it.
The retail packs have 6 cards each plus two Family Legacy inserts. The set is made up of 110 cards that cover from Episode I: Phantom Menace up to upcoming Episode VII: The Force Awakens so there is a great selection and some very nice photos. One thing that I am not a fan of is the parallels, once again Topps has included 9 parallels for each base card not counting printing plates. Is there really a reason to have 10 versions of each card?
In the two packs I pulled 6 base cards total of which 4 were parallels. This is definitely not a set to build using retail packs. Here is what I pulled:Two base cards
Two base card Jabba slime parallel (1 per pack)
One base card Black Starfield parallel (1:2 packs) This is probably my favorite parallel border color
One base card Lightsaber Neon (1:6 packs) These for some reason scan in as a dull pink , they are actually quite bright pink in hand
One Behind The Scenes
Two Blueprint cards
One Power Of The First Order. I like this insert along with the Heroes Of The Resistance (The good guys) version
One Character sticker
One Cloth sticker
Two Family Legacy
I like the set and if I got a chance to pick up a hobby box I would definitely grab it and I am very happy that I did not pull anything Hayden Christensen cards, that man destroyed the legacy of the Star Wars series almost as bad as George Lucas’ constant tinkering with the original trilogy.
