Star Wars Rogue One - take III

After so many bad-guys in previous post lets get some good ones in the house again.

Ohhhhhhh look! While I found difficult to get a Rey card in last year set, it seems I get all Jyn cards available.

And again...damn! This little baby looks so effin awesome I'm lost for better words!

I don't know who made the concept and put it into the cards, but I truly clap my hands dude!

This Storm Trooper cards is an other little baby I'd make a frame to put on my wall. That and make it my smartphone wallpaper too.

I'm mesmerized by these cards. And I will run you dry with the praise words until the next post...you'll see.

Star Wars Rogue One - take II

Did you like the previous cards of the new Star Wars Rogue One film!?

I bet you did. Because, like I said in the previous post, they ar a pretty thing to hold and collect.

Of course not all is good in the TOPPS trading cards world, and in a future post I'll show you just that. But for now lets keep posting pretty cards.

Well, it seem that this Director Krennic is the actual bad-guy here. He wears quite white cloths for a bad-guy. Only if he's thinking about snow and how to not be caught throwing snowballs against Darth Vader.

Ho Ho Ho

As you can see, the comic-book-look does the thing for this set. And we even get new Storm Troopers for this film.

Because they manage to make a new mask and uniform for them. I thought I've seen them all but I was wrong.

Don't know why, but I kinda love this 'Soldado da Morte' (Death Trooper) card a 'very big much'.

An other Samurai I think and a bunch of more Imperial Guards ready to chop your head off.

I got a lot of bad-guys cards. And I'm enjoying it!

Star Wars Rogue One - take I

Once again Disney is making big money with Star Wars franchise on Christmas.

Even when it's not a main title and it's with a spin-off or something like that.

The truth is that this universe is so enormous you can make the spin-offs you like that they will always end in the same path. Really. Just make the many forks you want. The end will be facing the almighty Darth Vader.


I saw these packs of TOPPS SW Rogue One trading cards and I'm weak. Very very weak.

I bought 10 packs each containing 5 cards.

You have the normal set and the obvious insert cards. The packs state the odds of them, but I can't figure out what is what so nevermind.

I'll just will show you the pretty cards because those are the ones that matter in the end.

Ohhhhhhh I got the heroine of the film!

I confess, that I've seen her in the trailers but only now I got to know her name.

She does really look like a badass! Kudos for that. 

I think this is one of the samurais we see on the trailers.

Finally the SW films show the true inspiration for Jedis: Samurais.

All these cards are beautiful. The colours, the texture feeling you get is very good.

They truly look, in the hand, like mini-painting. That's because they are like concept-like shoots. Or like out of a comic book!

I don't know why TOPPS chose this kind of look on the cards, but I must tell you they bet good on this one.

And I end with the always present Darth Vader.

Now I'll just have some cookies. Muahahahaha

Visca Barcelona

You know those machines to insert a coin and you get a ball with some toy inside!?

I love to collect those!

Even more in this case that was a Barça collection.

It was a collection of mini-figures that, it seems, was released like 2 or 3 years ago.

Here are just 3 of them. I got Neymar too but never a Messi.

The collection had a few players, not all the 11 players that featured the main team back then, but a great touch was the thing of having them in both main shirt and alternative shirt.

Some of the mini-figures come with a base and others come with a ball.

The details are quite good! if you know the players you can see how close the representation is!

Will show the other mini-figures in an other post.

New NHL season and John Tavares

A new season is here for NHL and after my Pens last year win I can dream of a back-to-back win too.

But I also wish that Tavares has a great season too.

It's good to see him as team Captain.

Because there are two countries in the world that may fear this hollyday season

You see, you have turkey for Thanksgiving and there is Turkey the country.

And in Portuguese we have peru (turkey in Portuguese) for Christmas (most people still prefer cod fish though...) and yep, there is Peru country too.

Soooooo...Since we have like a turkey/peru feast for like 2 months lets have also 2 Turkey Red cards.

May the turkey be with you.

50 Cities of the World #25 Stockholm

Look who is still alive! Yeahhhhhhh me!

Real Life got really real (ohhh my!) and I bought a house and so 'time' to run the blog is even lesser than before. That and money to pay absurd shipping costs to buy cards from USA...

But I haven't forgotten you all. Even more after the Cubs win the WS after 108 years!

You know that was the glitch that made your t.r.u.m.p. thing happen, don't you? ;)

But!!! Forget about that and lets travel to Stockholm.

You see, Stockholm is the capital of Sweeden. The land of the almighty ABBA that shown that there is life after the Eurovision Song Contest.

It's also located on more than one island. It's like a huge Bridge Town.

Yep. It's beautiful but it is also quite cold. But even I, that runs from the cold like it's hell (yeah...I had to make that pun), I'd like to visit.

Here. Check the city wiki page to know more.

PS: We're also in the middle of the cards set. Hurray! 25 more cities of the world to visit.
