This morning, Topps released 5 new teal cards onto the Star Wars Card Trader sheet, and for the first time, we are seeing base cards that dont exist in the normal parallels.
Many of us have speculated that this is the first preview of the next round of base cards, most of which we have been waiting quite a while for. If you have been in the app since day one, pretty easy to guess that your card sheet is looking something like mine. You probably have at least 50 copies of each common, and a new round of base could add a fresh and welcome departure from that.
The five released are:
- Sarlacc (in all its glory)
- Rancor (YES!)
- Fixer Loneozner
To see the Sarlacc pit get its time in the sun along side the Rancor is awesome, and though the Ewok card isnt all that special, it does give us the first base card representing a GROUP of people instead of one representative. Could there be a Stormtrooper card on the way? Imperial Guard?
Im not sure who the others are, but there will be a lot of those cards coming. There are only a finite group of characters until the new movie is released, so I guess we will have to make due with the C and D list of guys from background in the first six episodes and cartoons.
Either way – im very excited to see what is coming.
