I bought a 12 box case of this. There are parallel base cards, 5 different inserts and 2 hits per box (auto + 1 other). Overall, collation is very good. However, I did notice that the insert sets (not the hits) had about half of the cards in the top of the case and the other half in the bottom of the case. This is fine if you buy a full case, but someone who picks up several boxes is probably going to have poor insert collation.

Ignoring the massive number of black base, there were 31-33 orange in each box and 12 blue base. Almost all boxes had 3 green, but this appeared to be the one that went missing where there was something extra. All had 1 purple.

Inserts:

  • moments: 2 sets of 9 + 6 spare (2 per box)
  • locations: 4 sets of 10 + 8 spare (4 per box)
  • weapons: 4 sets of 10 + 8 spare (4 per box)
  • quotes: 4 sets of 15 + 12 spare (6 per box)
  • vehicles: 4 sets of 20 + 16 spare (8 per box)


Hits:

  • Parallels: 1 gold base(/10), 5 purple inserts (/99)
  • 9 auto standard: Jensen (Kit Fisto) 075/199, Bowers (Mas Amedda) x2 036/184 041/184, Pygram (Wilhuff Tarkin) 142/215, Blake (Rune Haako) 057/199, Graves (Duchess Satine Kryze) 173/199, Secombe (Watto) 177/215, Soucie (Rune Haako) 44/50, Glover (General Veers) 02/30
  • 3 autos special: dual Blakiston / Rose (Mon Mothma / Admiral Ackbar) 17/50, gold Baker (Kassius Konstantine) 06/25, gold Spence (Tion Medon) 06/25
  • 2 sketch: Vader by Brad Hudson, Snap Wexley by Juan Rosales
  • 8 medallions: 3 unnumbered U-Wing (Chirrut, Baze, K-2SO), 2 unnumbered Death Star (Galen, Jyn), Zuckuss unnumbered Star Destroyer, Zuckuss 41/99 Star Destroyer, Grand Moff Tarkin 64/99 Death Star
  • 2 printing plate: magenta Greedo ANH-19, magenta Cloud City workers ESB-16


I like the set as a whole. The characters come from all movies and the cartoons. The backs are good with 'attributes' and description, and the parallels are easy to spot and seem to have sensible ratios. The inserts are excellent, with well thought out information on the back. Both my sketches are good and the sketch quality does appear to be more consistent than some of the past efforts by Topps. But the set is let down by the regular hits - the medallions are well done (heavy metal), but still pointless and the autograph list is underwhelming and full of the same people we have seen before.

UPDATE: collation of parallel base is poor. The normal base seems okay, I put together 3 sets from the half case I sorted and only had to raid the other half of the case for about 10 cards. However, I only got 182/200 in the orange parallel and have about 200 spares.

Hi Jen,

Drop me an email if you want some oranges. We have a few. I need a few blacks to finish off another black set. Also have blues if you feel game to collect that! Smile

Will be good to catch up!

Cheers, Pete
