Images of these cards started showing up on Pinterest in the last week or so. Mostly character shots but they look good. I saw a box ROS cards at Target over the weekend.

Just from the Pinterest pictures, I'd buy this set before the Skywalker cards.

I ordered a set today, with the foil inserts set; decent price. Will post after I receive 'em, but I will be on the lookout for packs at Target (I really like those ESB-border insert sets, exclusive to Target), too.

Wow; talk about fast shipping! (actually, you don't need to; I'll do it, as I got it today) The set has the same blue border as the other Journey to... sets. It's divided into 3 thematic parts: "Hope" (about 40 cards), "Learning From Failure" (only 12 cards... with none from ROJ?!?) , and "Battle of Light & Dark" (around 40 cards). Some reused images (mostly from the original and prequel trilogies), pretty good back-of-card captions. The foil set was not worth getting (dull, unimaginative, no captions).
Still haven't found any Target packs yet.

[edit: insert Anakin's "LIAR!" line here] Found some packs today at Target: bought three 6-cards and one 16-cards packs. Got one of the ESB-border cards (Leia), a sticker (Lando), some color parallels and a couple inserts. I think I may be done, unless I find a deal on some of the inserts in some lot auction.

But I do have a few extras in the base set now, plus one foil (#7 Trooper, IIRC).

And the "real" set, minus the Journey part, is out at Target (and I assume, hobby shops that exist in places outside of the region where I reside). There are some "plot" cards, not just characters and vehicles/locations, but no back-of-card captions or descriptions. It says the base set is 99 cards, with about 5 insert sets. I bought a 10-pack (plus medallion card) box and two 16-card packs; it got my about half the base set and a few color parallels, plus a few of the inserts and one sticker. I'll seek out a set online (right now, they seem to be around $13-16) or see if a lot is available and pick up the rest as "choose your card" auctions.

[edit] Found a set for just over $10, so I'll have about 60 extras (plus a couple insert cards) once it arrives.

It's a really nice set of images; I am eagerly awaiting Series 2 whenever that's out.

Here are the extras I have (almost all just 1 of each; forgot to check on any multiple extras):

Blue parallels: 57, 90.

Inserts: CR-7, IC-12, -15, -16
