I expected a card set, but I had heard nothing about one. I bought some packs at Denny's looking for the 12 cards (a bit pricey at $3 a pack with just 2 cards per), but each pack had a coupon for $1 off any Topps Solo product. Now, I just have to be on the lookout at Targets (online, it says April 20th was the release date for the 100-card base set).

Still haven't seen any sets anywhere; do you think they're doing just a single card set, and waiting until after the film is released? Meaning, no "Journey to the Start of the Beginning of Just Prior to Leading Up to" set? The Denny's coupons are good through 6/30/18, IIRC, so that is still a fair amount of time remaining.

I had a club meeting today, and a couple of card enthusiasts were in attendance. Other than the Denny's cards, no one has seen them. I was given a $1 off coupon on Solo cards for Target.

I found the boxes of 10 6-per-pack (plus a patch card: I got Val & Han) at Target, so I got to use ONE of those $1-off coupons from Denny's. I'd hope to find the $4.99 10-card packs (or are they 15? I forget) or even the 6-cards, to better utilize those coupons. But, I have about half of the 100-card base set, and a few of the subsets (Smooth Lines, Silhouettes, Icons, M. Falcon, etc.?), and even one RARE PINK PARALLEL card! The images are really nice; in fact, now I know which scene to look for Therm Scissorpunch in a future viewing of the film.

I bought two 16-cards boxes (it appears the wrappers of 16 cards might be back to cardboard boxes). I am about 38 cards from a full set (I have about 10 others as color parallels, so about 50-ish from a full "regular" set). Oddest thing: I have just 6 duplicates and they're all color parallels or insert set cards.

I still haven't been able to find any more 16-card boxes, so I bought another 10-pack box (got a Molloch patch card, one more pick parallel) and am now just 26 cards from a complete set (technically, just 14 with color parallels included). But, I still bought a full set online (will list my extras after it arrives), because getting those 14-26 individual cards would be tricky.

I just bought a four-card pack at Dollar Tree tonight. All character cards. Like the image of Han as the mudtrooper. now I can kitbash a figure together.

I found another 16-card box (felt the need to justify my remaining $1-off-Topps-Solo-product coupons), but I only gained 2 new cards (a sticker, a yellow parallel). More extras now. Have never seen a 6-card pack, if any even exist. Still awaiting my online regular set. :)

More extras now... Still awaiting my online regular set. :)
Odd, that one significant character is missing from the set of cards (and for those who've seen the film, not it's not THAT character) is Dryden Vos; his name is on some captions, but no images. Too scary/violent for kids? There are some really good shots; I think waiting for the films to come out will lead to better card set quality (no need to hide anything).

Here are my extras, if anyone is interested...

Solo extras: 1, 3-7, 9-14, 16-18, 20, 22-27, 30-38, 40-44, 46, 50-52, 54, 56-59, 61-63, 65-68, 70-72, 74, 76-82, 84-85, 87-89, 91, 93-95, 97, 99-100.
Yellow Parallels: 42, 47, 50, 60, 82.
Silhouettes: 1, 7, 8, 10, 11.
Vehicles: 3.
Icons: 4.
Sayings: 2.

Dennys: Val, “Six Eyes,” Enfys, Mudtrooper, Range Trooper (and about three $1.00 off at Target coupon cards).

I bought one of the $20 boxes and finally had time to open the packs. Got a few duplicates, but a decent selection. Need to put them in order.

The boxes are still plentiful at Target, so I'll pick up a few more in the next few weeks.
