Picked up two hobby packs...
Wrapper & box features Kylo.

5 base
1 purple 1:4
1 red 153/199
1 poster TP6 1:24
1 KS-1p Resistance 1:2
2 IA1,16 Items & Artifacts
1 Fabric swatch MR-3 72/99 Praetorian Guard 1:360
Not bad for just two packs. Big Grin

From the small sampling...
Tentative Overall grade C+
Pros: eye-catching & colorful, interesting chase designs, nice swatch card (It appears to be only a source card, not screen-used)
Cons: parallel overkill on base, chase, relics.

At Chicago I picked up the only box of these I could find.
Base set, 100 cards with 12 extras
24 Parallels (Blue, Purple, Red, Bronze, some of them numbered)
20 Items and Artifacts, complete set plus 4 extras
10 Resistance Characters, complete set plus 2 extras
6 of 10 First Order Characters
4 of 10 Canto Bight Characters
1 Rey
1 Discount card (10 % already expired)
1 of 6 Poster cards
4 of 10 Ships and Vehicles
2 of 10 Stickers

1 autograph - Amanda Lawrence as Cmdr D'Acy
1 Sketch - Capt Phasma by Matthew Hiron

Thoughts about this set: Glad to make a full base set of regular base cards. Don't need to fill in with parallels.Nice to see text on the back, I really think all cards need something on back to describe what's going on in images. There are still gaps in story line, the scene where Leia goes into space without a spacesuit is not shown, for example. CORRECTION:Yes, Leia's unscheduled space walk is covered on one card. I missed it first time through.

I was happy with my autograph, while she is not a major character most of my Star Wars autos are puppeteers, people in costumes who can't be identified, it's nice to get a human auto for once.
The sketch by Matthew Hiron is about the best sketch of Capt Phasma I think I could get, very nice.
