Journey to SW: TFA trading cards

$1.99 for six cards.

One card really caught my attention, and it was the picture angle of Ren talking to the Vader helmet. Didn't see that angle in the movie.

Where 'text' & 'friend' are nouns
I have now bought a few 6-packs and two 16-card boxes: no super-special inserts, but several color parallels, many subsets (stickers, weapons, locations, concept art, etc.). Doesn't appear to have a checklist card, but as I often do, I did pull the last (#100) card from a pack. Have yet to read any card backs, but I likes the look of this here set.

[edit] I think I am about halfway to a complete set. There are what, 5 different insert sets, too (not counting the color parallels, a card concept I just don't get)? Might be a tad pricey to get 'em all.

[re-edit] Here are the extras I have as of today:
5, 12, 17, 19, 21, 31 (two), 36, 38, 40, 43 (two), 52, 55, 56 (two), 57, 61 (two), 71 (two), 81, 84, 96, Green Parallels 29 (two) & 85, Blue Parallels 37 & 39.
Sticker 8, Locations 1, Behind Scenes 1, Montage 6 (two) & 7, Movie Scenes 12 (two), Weapons 10, Concept Art 7 & 8.

The weird color parallel cards are getting harder for me to figure out if I "have" them (I have some with blue, green, AND purple, plus the regular silver card). But the movie scenes card shots are the best; too bad this series has less of them than the character solo cards (pun intended) and ships.

Here are the 100-base set cards I still need: 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 22, 24, 26, 27, 32, 33, 35, 41, 42, 44, 45, 48, 60, 65, 72, 73, 75, 80, 86, 92, 93, 95, and 98. I also updated the extras I have in the post above.

I just started on the TFA cards today...got 2 of the 16 card boxes and 1 blister pack with 3 packs of 6 cards. As I get more packs, I'll figure out what extras I have and what I'm lacking for a set.

I've checked 3 Targets in my area and nothing. There's no space in the card section up front. Didn't check the cards back in the toy section, though.

Found the deluxe 16-card pack at Target yesterday. $5 a pack. The cards are nice.

Still no sign of individual packs.

At a Target I don't often visit, I saw a 10-pack/plus medallion card box (passed: it was still $19.99), bought a few 16-card packs and 6-card individuals. Nowhere near a complete set yet, but I did get a few color parallels (I really don't like these as "special" cards at all) and subsets/stickers. Apparently, cards #101 & 102 (of Rey on the island) of the 100-card base set are "rare" and I did not pull either of them. :( I will likely seek out a good deal (if any exists right now) online for the set and maybe still buy some packs hoping for chase cards and subsets.

I bought one of the box sets. The medallion is nice. I picked up a TIE fighter.

I don't care for the color parallels either. It's a scam.

It's early, but here are my needs for the TFA Series II: 3, 9, 10, 13, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30, 34, 38, 39, 40, 50, 52, 59, 64, 68, 73, 76, 77, 81, 87, 94, 95, 101, 102.

I won't list my subsets needs, yet.

My extras are: 5, 6, 12, 19, 21, 23, 33, 35, 36, 37, 44, 46, 56, 70, 85, Green Parallels 86 & 98, Heroes Resist. 3 & 15, Maz's Castle 1 & 7, Stickers 8 & 13, several free digital pack cards.

[edit] I now only need the first card (Kylo Ren) of Series 1 to complete the base set.

With some more packs and some online lot auctions, I am now down these needs: TFA Series I: 1;
TFA Series II: 27, 38, 50, 64, 73, 94, 101, 102 [I might need even less, if a bid comes through].

I do have some extras to trade, if anybody wants to do so.

So, I hear that there's a Chrome TFA set out now (soon?), that seems to be a hobby shop-only series. However, what I see seems to be just the same TFA set in Chrome look. If that's true, do I care?

To quote Lili Von Shtupp, it's twue, it's twue! Got an advertisement from an online shop just yesterday about them. The 100-card basic set starts at $7, and then go up with all the subsets.

I will have to think about it myself. I'd like to see them in person before buying

Need some help completing a couple of the card sets. I will post the cards I need in the next few days.
