The standard set will consist of 60 character cards and 40 storyline cards that have one-liners explaining the scene in the film (we’ll spare you any details there but they are on the PDF).
Among the eight insert sets in this one will be a Behind the Scenes set, which leads off with “The Cast Assembled” on card No. 1. That’s presumably this now-famous photo that marked the formal start for all involved on the project. Other inserts include stickers, locations, movie scenes, concept art, character montages, weapons and a set called “The First Order Rises.”
Retail blaster boxes will include a medallion card inside every one and there 66 different cards in the release with two batches of short-printed cards noted on the checklist.
