Today EW.com received and exclusive reveal of some of the new characters that were seen in the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” trailer. J.J. Abrams, the film’s co-writer and director, and Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, decided to reveal the identities of some of their new characters exclusively to EW—and they did it in a retro fashion that should bring a smile to anyone familiar with the phrase “Collect ‘Em, Trade ‘Em.” EW was presented with a mocked up version of the original Topps Star Wars trading cards that debuted in 1977.

Here are the cards revealed in card number order, which according to J. J. Abrams, the numbering of these cards bears significance:
