Waiting for the Widevision Set...
The first set of Star Wars Revenge of the Sith trading cards by Topps was well crafted to not give away the entire storyline or any significant spoilers since it was released before the theatrical debut of the movie. As a follow-up, this September Topps is going to put out a fantastic widevision set to compliment the last original Star Wars movie to be seen on the big screen.
For card collectors who just can't wait until September to use up their Episode III collecting budget, Topps in the U.K. has produced a 68 card set using lenticular technology. The Flix-Pix cards will display up to 3 images per card, or use the layers to create a 3D-like effect.
The backs of the cards are rather simple, with a single image of characters representing the section of cards you're viewing and a number. There is no information on the back of the cards.
Before deciding to buy a set, (and even right at this moment) there was little to no information or any online checklists available. There were complaints in two card collecting forums that people who bought a box of cards weren't able to complete a set, so if you're somebody who likes to piece together sets, be prepared.
Since there is no unique text on any of the cards, the checklist below comes from the printed checklist which comes inside the card packs.
