Surprised no one has posted yet.
Found three hanger packs at Wally World.

Pack 1
12 base
1 blue parallel
1 green parallel
1 concept art
1 sticker

Pack 2
11 base
1 blue
1 green
1 concept
1 sticker
1 Heroes of Resistance

Pack 3
4 base
1 Power of First Order
1 green
1 Maz Castle
1 sticker
1 medallion card (1:300+) Clap

Autos, sketches, and parallel versions are available at very high odds (1:3000+)

Overall C+/C
Pros: blue color scheme, medallion cards, improved Heroes & Power chase
Cons: parallel & chase overkill, numbering hard to see.

I've bought several Hobby and Retail packs. Also got two rack packs from Target. No hits so far, got a gold parallel which is numbered.
The card numbers are dark on a dark background, so hard to see, and xtime is right - too many parallels!
Still, images are good, and it completes the movie set, so I'll keep working on these. Has anyone seen blaster boxes of these?

Blasters exist. I have them in stock currently. Have not seen any at retail though.

Haha! This is absolutely true, and pretty insane that Topps went that route given that the average card collector these days is 40 years old with varying degrees of failing eyesight. I think the real value of these sets as sold on the secondary market is that someone else sat under a bright light with a magnifying glass to sort them out. Big Grin

If Topps is listening:
Please use at least slightly larger numbers (preferably white) on a darker background. Your customers will thank you and not develop such deep crow's feet around the eyes when sorting.

I opened three hobby boxes and I got the correct number of inserts. My 2 hits per box were
Medallion cards:
Stromtrooper regular
Finn regular
Finn gold 66/100
Autographs:
Greg Grunberg as Snap Wexley
Brian Vernal as Bala-Tik
And
Triple Autograph 1/3 1 in 46,132 packs
Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa
John Boyega as Finn
Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca
Clap Metal Elephant Bouncey Dance
Needless to say I was floored, easily the biggest card I have pulled from a box.

Pulled a Galactic Connections card last night...1:40. Odd, but different. I would consider trading it for the triple auto if you add something else in to make it even. Razz Twak

Also, noticed they upgraded the Power of First Order and Heroes of Resistance chase cards. Both are now on glossy paper with silver lettering. A nice improvement. Thumb Up

Congrats, Rich! It's always a thrill when these monster cards end up in the hands of fellow board members. If it couldn't be me, I'm glad it was you, haha...

The character on it will matter, of course, but that's a $50+ card, not too shabby. Earlier this week, someone sold one of those featuring Kylo Ren in a small lot with 3 regular Ren-centric cards for only $6 via Buy-it-now. Oops!

I don't think you can. The regular silver foil base cards you get from a given box are all different, but there aren't enough of them to make a set of 100 due to the wealth of base foil parallels and other inserts. One pack in most of the boxes doesn't even have any base cards, instead holding a medallion card and a couple of regular inserts.

I got a case of this and it made 10 base sets with the 11th set missing a few cards and about 80 random dupes besides that. There were 2 green sets (24 green per box) with about 80 towards a third set, 1 blue set (12 blue per box) with 40 towards a second set, and a partial set of 70 purple cards with no leftovers. Holofoils are 2 per box, so it'd take a little over 4 cases (and perfect collation) to make that set. Golds are almost one card per box, but not quite. Most cases will have 10 or 11 of them, so you'd need about 10 cases (and perfect collation), to make that set, numbered to 100. Counting the 1of1 Platinums, there are 7 different versions of the base cards. Excessive by most standards, but if you could land one of those platinums, it would make for a pretty spectacular "rainbow" collection.

Thanks for the info I am thinking of buying two hobby boxes and wondered how much of a duplicate I would have left

Could you make a set of 100 different cards with all the parallels from a box?

Probably.
You would only be a few short from the regular silver set, and then on average, you'd get 24 green, 12 blue, 6 purple, 2 holofoil, and one gold, so out of those 45 cards, there's a pretty good chance you'd find the missing numbers among them from the regular silver set.

Out of my 3 boxes I made 2 complete silver sets and a third silver set missing 4 cards with only 1 spare card so my collation was good.

Keep your eyes open or the holofoil parallels might slip past you. LOL Eek
