The art style of the cards are decidedly old-fashioned, and they include replicas of the first Star Wars trading card set that Topps released way back in 1977. There are also cards that have some digital visuals and animation. .
The cards span the original six movies, along with The Clone Wars and Rebels animated series. They also include cards from the upcoming Episode VII: The Force Awakens film. Here's what Star Wars fans can expect from this app:
- The First Cards From STAR WARS: The Force Awakens - BB-8, Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren, Rey, and the other recently announced new characters from STAR WARS: The Force Awakens are here!

Be the first to get digital collectibles from the upcoming film. Collect 'em, trade 'em, but don't expect a stick of gum.

What a bust.
Anyone stupid enough to buy virtual anything, will buy virtually, nothing. I have the original, what, 6 sets of topps!?!
Tangible, bent corners, hold in my hands real.
Collectible electrons are going to be difficult to ebay. "Hello Gazelle? What's the blue book value of my super-rare StormTrooper #2 with the ePrinting error ?"
Wow! That's an awesome move from Topps! I love collecting digital trading cards. I use all Topps apps (Bunt, Kick, Huddle) and also Figgu to collect the Champions League. If you are into them look for me: Martin Scott
