- 100-card base set
- 3 insert sets
- no manufactured relics like patches and medallions

Due out in October.

Good news that there are no manufactured 'relics' in lieu of autos/sketches etc. and 2 hits per box sounds ok.

It's such a shame that they have come up with a nice clean auto design and then ruined it by whacking a sticker on it.

I'm not a big fan of parallel cards at all because I think they're generally lazy on the manufacturers part, but the ones listed sound pretty imaginative and in keeping with the show. Far more interesting than simple random colours like green or purple!

"Featuring the entire 5th Season in one card series!"

I believe that was a dig.

Topps would be smart to try to mimic what Cryptozoic did as far as content and ratios as best they can. After all Cryptozoic had a good thing going so there's no need to rock the boat too much. Topps has to realize by now that most collectors aren't the biggest fans of sticker autographs so it may be unwise to make them even more angry with lame hits. It may work with Star Wars where Topps is the only game in town, but not with this property which already had several successful sets that have a different number of "real" hits per box/case than Topps is used to giving us.
