Back in December, LucasFilm used a set of specially designed Topps trading cards to reveal the names of several characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, such as Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron and the ball droid BB-8. As it turns out, Topps is actually releasing a series of trading cards with similar designs. The first card images have been revealed as Topps announces their Star Wars Card Trader App. Fans can download the app in the iTunes App Store or on Google Play.
