This has become a yearly release I look forward to. There’s no real surprise to it, but it’s still a nice release. As we’ve seen in the last two years, we see a base set focusing on scenes from Return of the Jedi, along with familiar insert sets like Behind the Scenes, Concept Art, Posters, and Iconic Characters.
I’ve noticed something that seems a bit odd to me, too. For the original Black & White A New Hope release, the base set had 140 cards. The Empire Strikes Back had 150. This one, however, has 133. I’m a bit surprised it jumps around so much, but I guess it really isn’t a big deal. A box advertises 7 packs with 8 cards per pack, with 1 autograph or sketch card per box.
This box contained:
42 Base (31.6% of 133 card set)
1 Base Blue Hue Shift Parallel
1 Base Green Hue Shift Parallel
1 Base Purple Hue Shift Parallel
4 Base Sepia Parallels
3 Behind the Scenes
1 Concept Art
2 Iconic Characters
1 Autograph Tim Rose as Admiral Ackbar
