2018 Topps Star Wars Solo: Keeping with the Star Wars theme this week is this blaster that was part of that Black Friday purchase from Steel City Collectibles. I know the Solo movie doesn't have that many fans but I, especially after a second watch, have come to enjoy it for what it is which I think is a good but not great movie. In my humble opinion. The man himself stars on this card leading us off.
These are yellow parallels. I actually don't mind the yellow as it is somewhat prominent across the movie posters and makes sense for me.
These inserts are Smooth Sayings, Character Sticker and Silhouette cards. I like all three of these.
A few of the base cards whose card design is nice. I like Topps incorporating the Millennium Falcon while still leaving plenty of room for the photos. Enfys Nest is a cool looking character. Probably an action figure I'll pick up at some point.
This was my hit in the box. A very muddy Chewbacca manufactured patch relic. Not my favorite look for Chewy but he is an iconic character.
A Vehicles and Icons insert here. Both are OK but the Icons don't really wow me. Way too much wasted space.
A couple of black parallels including the Concept Art insert as well as a silver parallel. Not sure why they call that black but color parallels don't always make sense.
Overall I like these cards. The inserts are a little hit or miss but still fun. This blaster gave me plenty of variety and I enjoy looking back at the scenes and characters from the movie.
That "Showdown With Enfys Nest" shot is pretty well known from the trailers and I do think it is cool. I thought this was a great look for Qi'ra. Another fun post and another day down as we get closer to the release of The Rise of Skywalker.
