Topps has announced that they will be producing trading cards based on the upcoming Warner Bros film Terminator Salvation. The Topps card series will comprise 90 base cards highlighting some of the many “memorable moments” from Terminator Salvation, including key effects sequences.

Hobby boxes will include a minimum of one “hit” per 24-count box; foil packs will carry a suggested retail price of $2 per pack.”
