The US are definitely getting a Series 2, but I doubt we will get a release here, it's been too long since the film's release. It is likely that the USA packs will be available on the Topps site.

Topps UK have now lifted the restrictions on ordering the cards you need to complete your star wars sets.

You may order as many cards as you need until the stocks run out. Smile

Glad to see Star Wars is finally getting a new release. Theres been such a dearth of material over the last 10 years.

Unfortunatly the prices Topps have put on these cards will mean very poor sales in the mass market they are aiming at. Added to the fact that very few people in the UK have actually seen the Mandalorian as it is only on a subscription channel.

There are a LOT of movies and TV shows I have not seen, including The Mandalorian, since I don't have cable TV or streaming, whatever that is.
Call me old-fashioned (or whatever you want), but I only watch what I can rent (or buy) on DVD. And since I've stopped going to the movies, I'm way behind on everything all the time.
However, it does give me something to do trying to catch up all the time.
Reminds me of a joke I heard while watching PULP FICTION...
...there was this family of tomatoes, you see...

I have bought many card products on TV and movie titles when I never saw the show or film or saw them and didn't care for them. Sometimes the cards are very well done and surpass the actual source material.

However I think the majority of viewers of anything are not card collectors to begin with and often don't even know what's available as far as cards goes. So if they are restricted from seeing something, they certainly aren't looking for cards on it. And even if they do see it and perhaps like it, they may still have no interest in buying cards.

Just think about the millions and millions of international fans that were hooked on Game of Thrones as an example. RA has overproduced the heck out of that series, but if everyone who claimed to be a rabid fan during its run had bought into the cards, they would all be in private collections and the market would be dry of all prior releases. Of course, that is not the case. Only a small portion of those viewers were card collectors or became card collectors because of it.

They are two different things. Commercial failures will fail as cards, but hits don't necessarily mean that the cards will make it just as big or even be successful at all.

"Outlander" is kind of an outlier. A lot of people have liked the show but it appears there wasn't a lot of memorabilia out there at first so they bought whatever was available and that included cards. We knew they were new card collectors because they were paying up for promos they could have obtained for less by buying copies of NSU. The extra demand drove up prices for other cards too. Looking at the recently-published 2021 Beckett Non-Sport Almanac (7th Edition), I see many cards across the sets are still going for good money.

I neither watch Outlander or collect the cards, so I have no insight into Outlander card collectors beyond the obvious. The product supply has been kept in line with the demand for the cards for the most part. If that makes it an outlier, maybe it's something that should happen more often.

Since 2016 there have been 5 releases. That averages less than one a year with one in 2016, 2017 and 2020 and two in 2019, including the expensive and limited CZX. The card market hasn't been saturated with Outlander and that keeps the prices up, while the show is still maintaining its viewers even with long lapses. To me, it's just that simple. They haven't killed this golden goose yet. Big Grin
