#53 — Poe Dameron in his X-Wing
#67 — Kylo Ren ignites his Lightsaber

Here are the names of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens characters so far. BB-8, Finn, played by John Boyega, Ren, played by Daisy Ridley, Poe Dameron, played by Oscar Isaac and Kylo Ren, played by an unknown actor (rumor is Adam Driver).
1. Finn is a Former Stormtrooper
There are plenty of rumors as far back as October that Boyega's character is a former Stormtrooper. We already listed that as a possible explanation for why Boyega is in a Stormtrooper outfit and this seems to cofirm it. The title of his card says "on the run." From who? Probably the rest of his squad.
2. Last Name Hidden
The cards obviously tell us the character names, but what’s even more interesting is what’s not there. We know the last name of Kylo and Poe, but Finn and Rey's last name is hidden. That means it's a spoiler. Its most likely the last name of a returning character. We know Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) are back. So, they're either named Skywalker, Solo or (a huge spoiler) Organa. The children of the original characters are a huge part of the expanded universe, so this would make sense.
Of course, Finn's last name could be Calrissian which would be amazing since up till now Billy Dee Williams name isn't on the list of cast members. It’s also possible they’re last name is Chewbacca, but that’s just too horrifying to think about.
3. New Speeder
There are several vehicles called speeders in the Star Wars universe. There are the Speeder Bikes from the Endor chase in Return of the Jedi. Darth Maul's speeder from Episode I and Luke's Landspeeder from A New Hope. Now we get to see a new one and it’s a strange looking thing.
4. Sith Lightsaber
Kylo Ren ignites his lightsaber which is obviously Sith from its red color. This isn't some lightsaber he found lying around or borrowed. While the Emperor has been killed there is obviously a return of the Dark Side.
5. Stormtrooper War
The title prepare for battle implies an all out war with the Stormtroopers
6. X-Wing War
These ships aren't just flying around. They're in formation which implies they're an organized squadron of pilots. If it's a time of peace why would there be a need for fighter pilots? This is clearly a time of war
7. There will be 132 cards
The cards have stayed very true to the style, color and design of the original trading card sets so the numbering will be the same as well.
What do you think of the trading cards?
