I realize the images of these new trading cards were revealed on Thursday, but my patience’s paid off as now you can see them in a nice high-resolution and no annoying Entertainment Weekly water mark.
Disney and J.J. Abrams surprised a lot of us on Thursday when they revealed some of the characters names for the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens by doing so in a collection of “throw back” Topps trading cards that reminds you a bit of the original trilogy.
The cards show us the same images we saw from the teaser trailer, but this time with the names of the characters they are portraying. The mysterious villainous figure with the unique red-bladed lightsaber was partially answered with the cards as we now know the character is that of “Kylo Ren”, but obviously we have no clue as to what actor or actress is underneath the dark clothing.
Some sites claim that it’s most likely actor Adam Driver while some fans on another say it could even be Mark Hamill’s character of “Luke” although I would very surprised at that one, but I wouldn’t put anything past Lucasfilm, Disney or Abrams.
