Over the last few months, Topps has unveiled a slew of Star Wars: The Force Awakens trading cards that fans can download through their digital Card Trader app, which is available through the iTunes App Store or on Google Play. Yesterday, the company unveiled the final trading cards of their Topps Classic series, but today, the trader app revealed over 50 new cards spread out through a number of different card series', which give fans a look at new and iconic characters alike. While series like Topps Classic are complete, others will continue to roll out new cards as we get closer to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens release date.
The first series is dubbed First Order Wide Screen, which features the villainous Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and numerous First Order Stormtroopers. The next series is entitled Die Cut, showcasing more Stormtroopers along with Rey (Daisy Ridley), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Kylo Ren, Finn (John Boyega) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie). The Monochrome set features Kylo Ren, Stormtroopers, Snowtroopers, Rey, Poe Dameron, Finn, Chewbacca, Captain Phasma and the beloved ball droid BB-8. The Premiere series features all of the aforementioned characters, which is where the card that confirms Rey's Millennium Falcon pilot status debuted.
There is also a Helmets series, depicting various helmets worn by different characters, Sketches, which gives us a different look at the Flametrooper, the character seen setting off a blaze in the Comic Con video, and ongoing series such as Visages and Schematics. The first Schematics card shows us a detailed blueprint of the Millennium Falcon. It isn't known how often Topps will release new cards in these ongoing series for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
There will surely be many more trading cards debuting over the next few months, since the official Topps announcement revealed there will be over 1,000 trading cards that will be available through the Trader App. The app will also re-release all of the vintage Star Wars cards from the original series, along with state-of-the-art Parallax and Motion cards. The announcement also revealed that new cards will be unveiled every couple of minutes, so be sure to check back for more updates.
We reported earlier this week that the third and final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer will be released on Monday, October 19, which is when tickets will also go on sale for this highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel. LucasFilm hasn't confirmed those details yet, but hopefully we'll find out more details soon. While we wait for the next trailer, check out these new trading cards, which you can download yourself through the Card Trader App on iTunes App Store or on Google Play.
