2015 Topps Star Wars Galactic Connexions Battle Damage Princess Leia

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

2015 Topps Star Wars Galactic Connexions pack several elements into one. They’re definitely not trading cards, but they’re certainly structured that way with blind packaging, a set to build and plenty of chase elements. To that end, it brings them in line with Topps’ Chipz line. But they don’t look anything like poker chips. Galactic Connexions is also a game requiring strategy.

The line is exclusive to Walmart.

The basic set of 2015 Topps Star Wars Galactic Connexions features 75 different characters. However, each of those has more than a dozen different disc styles that vary based on the frame color and type of sticker.

The checklist is based entirely on characters. It combines the original trilogy, prequels and a handful of new ones from The Force Awakens.

Basic discs have a gray frame and basic character sticker. Next up are Holographic Foil stickers then Pattern Holographic Foil stickers that look a little like X-Fractors. Black-frame discs are considered uncommom and Clear frames are rare. Each of these have the same sticker configuration as well. All told, there are nine total styles of the Gray, Black and Clear discs.

All 75 discs also have four additional parallels based on the color of the frame: Jabba Slime Green, Lightsaber Red, Death Star Silver and C-3P0 Gold. These are considered to be ultra rare. Ultra rare discs have only one type of sticker.

If that wasn’t enough, select characters have additional ultra-rare versions. Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Prince Leia, Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi have Battle Damage discs that look like rusting metal on the outer frame. Han and Boba Fett come with Slave 1 discs that are red, blue and gray on the outer frame. Finally, there’s an Imperial Red version of Emperor Palpatine.

Exclusives

During the launch of 2015 Topps Star Wars Galactic Connexions, a few exclusives were available but only for a limited time. Ten Blue Starfield discs were found in giveaway packs. These aren’t parallels but rather entirely new discs that cannot be found in regular packs.

There’s also a very rare 14K Solid Gold Slave Leia disc that’s part of a contest.

A Stormtrooper disc kicked off the line as a promo giveaway at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con.

Playing the Game

Galactic Connexions isn’t intended to be an overly complicated game. At its most basic, it combines parts of Dominoes and the simple card game, War. Added layers that bring in Star Wars lore and mythology.

If you want a full rundown on how to play, here’s a copy of the Star Wars Galactic Connexions rules.

Topps has also set up a website that shows points and scoring at a glance.

    I have the entire connexions 1st editions collection except for the following 7. Finn, Tie Fighter Pilot, IG-88, Zev Senesca, Mace Windu, Count Dooku, and Clone Trooper. I also have 16 Blue Battlestar exclusives. As well as 2 slime green r2-d2, 1 light sabré red r2-d2, 1 light sabré red Poe Dameron, 1 slime green Tusken Raider, 1 slime green boba fett, and 1 slime green Aayla Secura. I have doubles and triples of quite a few varying from the gray, black, and clear rims. I was just wondering if anyone has a clue to how much the complete first edition set would be worth if aquired? And has anyone found the clear coin you mail into tops to get 24 carat gold Slave Leía?

    I am trying to put together several sets– I think lol been having a difficult time because I am doing gray standard, gray foil, gray pattern, etc

    If you don’t care about border color or background pattern I have a Finn, Zev, count, clone

    for me just the standard background gray I need–r2d2, Anakin, jango, wedge, commander cody, flametrooper, greedo, momaw nadon, stormtrooper, tie fighter pilot, grand moff, ig-88, lobot, dak ralter, mace windu, count dooku, coleman trebor, kit fisto, barriss offee, dexter jettster.

    again these are for gray standard only – no foil no holo pattern. I have separate lists for those.

    have you found any other places to trade these with people. it is going to be a bare to make a entire set by purchasing packs.

    Being that I work at Walmart (where this collection is exclusive to), I so far have 18 of them in my collection, including a Jabba Slime Green Holographic Pattern Darth Maul, and 1 that’s NOT EVEN LISTED…a Blue Starfield Grand Moff Tarkin (not the #40 Gray version!!) So, there actually may be MORE than just the listed 86!!

    I am looking to trade my extras for discs that I still need if anyone is interested. I mostly have grey and black and will trade for grey and black. Thanks.

    I just got the Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens DVD + Blu-Rey (?) and I got a Luke sky walker disk, but it looks like the blue star field disks, but the blue part is red! It is really weird, Ido if it’s rare or not.
