New ‘Star Wars’ Trading Cards Give Us Another Glimpse of ‘Rogue One’
The Topps Star Wars: Card Trader digital trading card game has been around since a little before the release of The Force Awakens last year, when the iOS and Android app launched. It became pretty popular, providing a paperless way of trading cards back and forth through smartphones, with about a million users and 60 million individual cards. Ahead of this winter’s release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Topps has released the artwork for six new trading cards, featuring characters from the upcoming film.
The Rogue One: Premiere cards also include a special Darth Vader card, since we all know he’ll be in the movie in some capacity. The artwork gives us another look at some of the new characters, including Alan Tudyk’s droid KS20, an AT-ST walker, Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) looking extra Indiana Jones-y, and Director Krennic’s Death Troopers, which are waaaay scarier than the Storm Troopers, that’s for sure.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is directed by Gareth Edwards and also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Riz Ahmed, Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen, Diego Luna, and Warwick Davis, and hits theaters December 16.
