2021 Topps UK Star Wars: The Mandalorian Seasons 1 and 2 is an affordable way to dive into trading cards for the Disney+ show. If you collected the main Mandalorian Season 1 and Season 2 sets from Topps, this is probably an easy skip. However, if the small boxes and high prices prevented you from building a set or some of its inserts, this is definitely an option.
Available widely in the UK and other parts of Europe, the bulk of the checklist simply reprints the earlier hobby releases. There are a few additions and differences, but not much.
2021 Topps UK Star Wars: The Mandalorian Seasons 1 and 2 Checklist Overview
The base set has 156 total cards, 78 for each season. That’s down from the original 100 the original individual releases had but it covers the major moments. Designs carry over, which means the first 78 cards look different from the second half.
A handful of insert sets are reprinted as well. That said, they’re not a major chase and appear to be about as common as the main set. These include Aliens and Creatures (10 cards), Comic Covers (six cards), Concept Art (18 cards) and Tools of the Bounty Hunter (10 cards).
Character Cards are also reprinted as foil inserts. There are 25 in total here, a mix of the similar inserts in the separate hobby releases. Character parallels include Yellow, Green (/299), Blue (/99), Purple (/50), Orange (/25), Turquoise (/10), Red (/5) and Gold (1/1).
Six Crystal inserts are exclusive to the UK release. Landing 1:12 packs, these are printed on acetate.
The UK set also has six autographs, although these are extremely scarce.
Premium boxes are also available that are similar to hanger boxes found for many retail products in North America. These have just one pack, but it’s a big one. Premium boxes deliver 100 cards, six of which are Characters parallels.
A starter kit is highlighted by a small binder meant to house the set. Kits also have a booklet outlining the set and it’s many parts plus two packs of cards to get collectors going.
