Topps is headed to San Diego Comic-Con.

SDCC is the biggest pop culture event of the year with everything from your favorite movies and TV shows to comics and anime. Topps is there once again with a booth in the Lucasfilm Pavilion as we get to show off many of our upcoming Star Wars trading card releases.

But that’s not all as Garbage Pail Kids will be well represented at the show as well.

Here’s what Topps has planned for San Diego Comic-Con.

Star Wars

A limited-edition Star Wars continuity set began at Star Wars Celebration this year featuring five characters from the original trilogy. At San Diego Comic-Con, the set continues with five new character cards from the prequels.

Fans can get one physical card for every $50 spent at the Topps booth. Cards are only available while supplies last.

The Power of the Dark Side trading card set ($50) debuts at San Diego Comic-Con, which will include one guaranteed autograph card.

There are a limited amount of sets available at SDCC and on Topps.com. But only those sets purchased at SDCC will include a bonus Sith Trooper card.

Star Wars Authentics will be on hand with autographed photos of the saga stars including Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Hayden Christensen and more.

There is also a Star Wars Authentics Sith Trooper photo given away with each purchase at the booth while supplies last.

Garbage Pail Kids

If you love Garbage Pail Kids, there is plenty going on at SDCC.
