I got P3 (Chewbacca) and P2 (an awesome Yoda, on Dagobah, with his lightsaber) for this upcoming new set which should be shipping soon.

Of course, the promos say "Winter 2010" but they always get delayed. lol

I forget about these all the time. Guess it's time to start searching Target stores in the next few weeks.

Where'd you get those preview cards?

P3 was in an issue of Non Sport Update a few months ago, then I got P2 when I renewed my subscription last month.

I'm not sure where P1 is available but I'll look into it. I'm also not sure if they released anything beyond P3.

i think this time around I might spring for a box of the cards instead of getting individual packs. still do not have a complete set of Galaxy 4 or 5.

if i do I'd be willing to hook people up with the extras in trade.

Topps is notorious for saying a set would be released one date and then move it at least once or twice.

Missed out on the promo cards, but I can continue living.

In recent years, I've only bought one box, and it was the Empire 3D cards last year. Just don't have the extra $$$ like I used to. Besides, I know enough card collectors who will sell me a basic set for $5 or so.

The cards have been found at Target in my area. I haven't seen them yet.

I tried two Targets yesterday, and I found the same number of supermodels I've dated: none. :( But today, I bought the same number of packs as eyes, hands, and feet I have: six. :D I pulled two cel cards and three foils (one a gold foil parallel). Pictures are pretty sweet; I really like the SW The Video Game one. I shall seek out a complete set online soon. :thumbsup:

I bought 3 more packs today, and netted a different animated cel and a duplicate foil (Greedo); I have very few duplicated of the standard cards. Heading to check on good deals for complete sets now. :D

Question: I know they're keeping a running card total below each new Galaxy Series one, but what is the total total of all 6 serieseses? (I don't have the Checklist card yet, for a change).

And the answer is... 725. Interesting number for 6 series (for an average of 120.83 cards per).

I now have a complete set, plus the 6 etched cards (really nice artwork) and silver foil 10. If any of you need/want fill-in cards, lemme know (I'd say I have about 40 regular cards and a couple foils).

I haven't bought any of the cards yet, but I did pick up a copy of Non-Sport Update with P2 in it. It is an awesome card.

Finally picked up a complete set over the weekend. Very nice looking cards.

New series 7 is out. I bought three packs, snagged two foil cards. Haven't had much of a chance to read the backs yet (still 7 per pack). I see a lot of Fett cards so far.

I bought one pack on Tuesday, and got a clear Vader card. Like the quality of the artwork. Didn't like paying $3.19 for a single pack.

I, too disliked that cost increase. I just bought the set, plus the really cool etched foil subset, online. Will be reading the card backs soon.

I bought two more packs (likely my last ones), and got a foil etched (already have all 6 in set, I beat the 1:6 odds on that one) and a clear cell (Sandtrooper #7), which doesn't show its odds on the wrapper back. But what did I read on the back? Read more.


Potential Canadian winners will be required to first correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question. Include on a 3 x 5 card the answer to the following skill-test question: 10 + 5 x 2 - 8 = ?That's not fair, is it, eh?

Were there any promo cards for this set? I checked ebay for pricing but didn't find anything listed.

A quick search of the Interwebs shows only a promo poster, but no cards. Etched foil and silver/bronze chase cards, plus the sketch ones of course. But it seems no promos, sorry.
