To tie in with the release of the first two episodes of the second season of “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” on Disney+, Topps has announced that it will be releasing some new content and hosting an in-app watch party for the Star Wars Card Trader App on Apple and Android devices.
Collect and trade over 1,000 officially-licensed Star Wars digital cards. All of your favorite characters, vehicles, and locations from the STAR WARS universe are here. From the nostalgic, including replicas of the original “Star Wars ‘77” set by Topps, to the futuristic, including all new trading cards with exciting digital twists, you’ll be able to take your entire Star Wars card collection with you anywhere you go.
Chrome versions of collectable cards with special visual effects will be available to users who open Watch Party Packs.
The watch party takes place on January 4th at 8 p.m. ET, at which time the Star Wars: Card Trader community will be invited to come together to watch both episodes of the premiere, discuss it in-app and collect cards from the episodes as they all watch together. These free cards will remain available for 72 hours to allow any users who could not attend the Watch Party a chance to get in on the action.
“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch—a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army—each possess a singular exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.
When the new season opens, months have passed since the events on Kamino, and the Bad Batch continue their journey navigating the Empire after the fall of the Republic. They will cross paths with friends and foes, both new and familiar, as they take on a variety of thrilling mercenary missions that will take them to unexpected and dangerous new places.
