1978 Topps Star Wars Series 5 was a trading card set released by Topps[1] in 1978.[2]

The set was based on Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, and featured stills from the film, promotional photos and behind the scenes photos, all within an orange border. Backs of the cards featured a "Movie Facts" theme or included a portion of a larger image that could be pieced together with other cards like a puzzle. A sub-set of sticker cards was included.[1]

Card numbering in the set continued from the previous series.[1]
