Topps introduce Star Wars Living Set, a collection of the greatest Star Wars characters in the galaxy that lives on year after year. This week’s cards (week 1) will only be available for seven days and Topps will only print as many cards as ordered. The cards are available individually or as a set of two, and feature artwork by Kris Penix.
What is the “Living Set”? It’s a trading card set that starts with Card #1, but does not have a final card. The Living Set is a collection of the greatest Star Wars characters in the galaxy that lives on year after year. The Star Wars Living Set continues the Topps tradition of creating cross-generational products that can be collected and traded for years to come.
As part of the Living Set program, Topps will only issue one card per character per film, live-action series or animated series. Two new characters will be offered every week and will be available for purchase for just one week.
The Star Wars Living Set is inspired by the iconic 1977 Topps Star Wars Series 1 design. The blue starfield design still resonates as one of the most popular trading card designs in Topps’ history.
The Star Wars Living Set will feature artwork by notable Star Wars artist, Kris Penix, whose impeccable photo-realistic style brings new life and perception to Star Wars characters.
The first two cards (numbered 1 and 2) are Darth Vader and Nien Nunb and they are available now for $7.99 each or as a set for $11.99 from the Topps US site, and also from the UK site for £4.00 each or as a set for £6.00. You have around five days left to order the first set, so go get them now — happy hunting!
