    The big flea market was this weekend. One vendor had the GF2 for sale, $5.50 a pack. I was tempted...for two seconds but couldn't bring myself to cough up five bucks for a back.

    I did handle a pack. Nice and heavy.

    These aren't coming to retail. And neither is the set slated for November.

    But I'm happy to say I'm now the proud owner of a complete GF 2 set. My club had its annual fall festival over the weekend, and the club's big card collector has sets for sale. Paid a little more than I'd like but I have them. Been so busy that I haven't had the chance to look through them all.

    I really haven't had a chance to read any of them, but I too now own a GF2 set, plus the Classic Lines and Weak Minded subsets (and a fold-out poster, too). It was a good online deal.

    I've been checking out some of the card backs. The good: stats for Han in Carbonite card, learning that Gen. Mcquarrie's first name was Pharl. The odd: stats for Luke and Leia babies' cards, too much italics on one card, giving Palpatine a 1 level Force Power stat, not putting similar parts of the films (or characters) next to each other in the card order. The bad: some cards having the same card # and picture on the "check these other cards" bottom.

    It's not bad, but apparently EVERY SINGLE STAR WARS CHARACTER SEEN ON FILM will be featured in this series, I guess.

    Here's why you should get this series: cards #552, 555, and 557. These feature, in order: Jaxxon, Noa Briqualon, and Teek. But here's why El Chuxter will NOT get card #557: on their scale of 10, Teek's speed is a mere 7.

    There are some interesting EU characters featured in this, too.

    And you get Bob, aka Rebel fleet trooper #11 in the opening scene of ANH's card. : p

    Bought the latest Insider with the promo cards. I might wait a bit longer before picking up a second one.

    I finished reading all the card backs of this series. I realized that it seems like the cards from the Clue board game: people, places, weapons. I just wish they'd either use larger font or put in more information; those gaps (some fairly large) on the back simply scream for filling them in. Like, a different small photo, perhaps?
