Neil, super fun and very cool.  Thanks for the heads up!  Also I believe there is a Joe Simko Mars/GPK promo for the GPK fans out there.

Not sure about the specifics Daryl, but I'm sure they explain it all on the kickstarter website.

From what I understood from checking out the site, the physical items are anything except the $10 "Watching from Mars Digital Rewards."  It also sounds like anyone who's contributing gets whatever new stretch bonuses come out, regardless of when they pledged.  Hope I've got this right!

I think this promo helped this project out quite a bit today. Almost at $105K. Nice way to boost their sales and awareness of the project.
I was hoping to score a Neil Mashup Sketch ; but knew that was a long shot. Now I have an actual Wacky/ MA card locked down. VERY COOL!

Just bumping the thread, as after re-reading Neil's post, it seems that this particular bonus might only be for pledges made before 5/25.

Just got an email from Topps.  Today is the last day for pledges to include the Wacky promo.  So, if you're on the fence, now is the time to act!

Post by: DrDeal on May 26, 2015, 03:08:14 AM
They are past $122 K now ; so hopefully the Wacky promo ending helped pull in some more pledges. Very cool to have the wacky card included. Neil's mashup sketches are the best....but pulling one will be a long shot. This makes that situation much better.

378 backers as of this morning, so there should be about that many Wacky promo stickers created.  I'd have added more stuff if it would have gotten me extras of that sticker, but it apparently doesn't work that way.

I would guess that certain OLD's have opened multiple pledge accounts on KS and purchased the minimum physical item pledge in order to score multiples of this and the GPK promo's.

I tried to order extras, but the system wouldn't let me.  Maybe it was because I didn't understand Kickstarter "accounts."  Bummer.

I would think you would need multiple email addresses to set up multiple accounts. Not sure; but where there is a will.....

I would not be surprised if some of the bigger OLD's ended up with more than one of the promo wackies for re-sale.

So they just added 8 of Wacky and 8 of the GPK Mashup cards to each 8 box case Retailers order for the MA KS. That should be good news for some retailers

and should help drive last minute retailer pledges.  I bet this project cracks $150k soon.

The promo card is listed a combo... does that mean this is a new (and different) card that has WP promo on one side and the GPK on the other? 

Or does the $5 get you a set of both cards?

I'm taking it to mean both cards for the $5.  Very glad they did this!  With it being Memorial Day, I think a lot of Wacky collectors might have missed out on Attacky Packages for the last weekend deadline.

Guys,

My current hobby budgets (focused on candy, pretty much) don't really allow for me to buy into a Mars Attacks set.  However, I'd love to get a set of these promo cards.  Anyone willing to proxy purchase a set of the promos for me?  Let me know. 

Thanks! - Jason

okay, so I guess there is not actually a selection to make to add this? you just add money to your pledge amount, then Topps will ask you later what you want?
this seems a bit haphazard.

Yep, confused me too.  Thanks again to Monsterettes for setting me straight! 

Haphazard it may be, but I like the idea of being able to select what chase levels and extras I want.  However, if they ever do this for Wackys, I want the ability to buy extra base sets as an add-on without having to pay $80 for a box.

Forgive my confusion, but I'm not understanding all these options.  Maybe I just need to read this thread over, but what item(s) exactly can people get and for what amount?  I'm not all that interested in Mars Attacks, but I love the various Wacky mashups and wish I could get a set of just those cards, but that doesn't sound like an option.  If I could get just one mashup, I would.  But is that possible?  Can I get one without having to pledge to Mars Attacks?  If so, which mashup card could I get?

yeah, it's nice being able to pick and choose some of the stuff.
no extra base sets is odd. I guess you could pledge again under a different address at the $40 level? but that would only get you one extra set at a time.

Neil has been posting many awesome mash-ups in a different thread, but all except the one at the top of this thread are unique sketch cards that will be randomly inserted into Mars Attacks packs.  The one at the top of this thread you could "order" today by pledging $25.  Or, those who are already pledging are now able to add the one at the top as an extra add-on to pledges.  Not sure if it will be a sticker or a card, but it's cool!

I'd love to see a future Wacky release include a subset of all of Neil's Wacky/MA mash-ups, but I'm not holding my breath.

I was thinking the same thing.  I was never impressed with what I saw in regard to the aborted Star Wars Wacky Packages mash-up set, but Neil's Wacky/Mars Attacks?  That's a set I'd get behind!  Great, fun stuff to just seems to blend so together so much more organically.

I *think* you have the option to get the wackys simply by adding to your pledge amount. I'm sure enough to put my money on it anyway.

For those of you who didn't get in before the cutoff to get a free wacky mashup.  There is now an add on for 5 dollars that gives you both the wacky  and GPK promo card. They are just short of 160k, so there is a lot of add one that are going to be distributed

The $160,000 stretch goal is a big addition - 3 more Dinosaurs Attack Letter-Press cards!  Can't see how they won't hit that today, as they're at $159,786 already.  That stretch goal may prompt people to go up to the level that includes all letter-press cards.

I agree I did get a level that includes all the letter presses.  I am very happy with all the upgrades that are coming. I laugh though, we are so close to using dinosaur fossils in the ink.  Is it just me or does that really mean anything to anyone?

I don't care one little bit about that.  I DO hope they get to the other two goals so that the "Then and Now" and "Dinosaurs Attacks" chase subsets go up 3 cards each.

I originally was at the pledge level that has a full set with chase cards and a binder. After 30 days I am at the Frost Ray Level that includes all 12 Letterpress "Hit" cards. My feelings about this set changed over time after watching it develop on Kickstarter.  It was a fun ride and I look forward to continuing to follow the conversation about it on the KS Page in the comments section.  I do think we will reach the $175 Level so all the chase subsets will be 9 card sets. I think that purchases made after the campaign ends via the survey will count towards the stretch goals.

I will be pretty excited if Topps does a Old School 6 release on Kickstarter.

At 181K now. Only one stretch goal left with 8 hours to go. At 185K they add Tyranosaurus Rex Fossil dust to the Dino Attacks Letterpress card ink. Nice to see the
campaign succeed. Almost 500 backers. We could probably do as well or better with OS on Kickstarter.

Finished at 198K. Not bad at all. Looking forward to this set. The contents of the set changed quite a bit due to stretch goals being met. This was fun to follow. I look forward to OS6 on KS if it happens. One of the Options was to get your face on a a card in the set. It was pricey ($1965) but a cool idea and they sold 3 out of 5 of those spots.  It would be pretty cool to have some type of a mention on a Wacky Pack card.

actually $1962, the year of the original card release.
so your face on a wacky would probably cost a few dollars more, if there's a similar kind of gimmick

Lots on controversy surrounding post-campaign moves by Topps on this set. Check the comments on the Kickstarter page to view the proceedings.

I think this one is key to watch as it may provide a template for OS 6 on KS. I will be watching to see if they continue take our feedback to the post-campaign survey plans into account. Currently a few changes need to happen with the survey before they roll it out; in order for me to feel they did right by the backers. They hit four times their funding threshold of 50K by selling about 200K worth of cards. Now they are offering the Exclusive Variant Binder which you had to spend minimum of $700(Which I did) to obtain for $50 separately.They are also not allowing backers to change their pledge levels ; but  are allowing backers to purchase additional pledge level bundles after the fact. So if you spent $300 and want to move to $700 level, you can't ; but you can add the $700 level bundle as long as you keep that $300 purchase too.  We made our choices on pledge levels during the campaign and that should be that. No changing the levels or buying additional levels should be allowed. That defeats the purpose of the time-bound KS campaign.

So it looks like $200K was not enough pre-sales and now they are taking steps to add another $XXK to the pot before production begins; thus watering down the exclusivity of the items in the set as production increases to meet the after-campaign purchases. Some backers made decisions on what to pledge as the campaign wound down ; taking into account how many of each pledge level had been claimed and how limited the items in the pledges would be. Hopefully some changes to the post-campaign survey will occur before it goes out.

Before the pledge session ended, it looked to me like there would be something like 30-35 variant binders.  Now there are an extra 50 available, which greatly diminishes the scarcity and potential future value of that binder.  But, as I recall, there were several pledge levels above $700 that did not include the variant binder.  It might have been better if they only allowed people who had pledged for one of those levels to add the variant binder.

I wonder how many on here were part of the original campaign - i agree with their move to allow no new pledges and only those who originally pledged get the add-ons. I think it was run very professionally and the communication was outstanding - my firm would need to take notice :)))
Title: Re: Mars Attacks Occupation Wacky Promo!
Post by: RawGoo on June 06, 2015, 06:51:12 AM
I think there were enough people here who pledged that there will be several threads, including trading, after the product is delivered and packs are killed. We might actually gain a few members!

Mars Attacks cards may have predated my collecting by several years, but I remember seeing them as a kid from friends' older siblings.  I also remember bringing one home from a Wacky trade, and being told I couldn't keep it.  That kind of made it more alluring, and I think the same thing may apply to other Wacky collectors.

The kickstarter campaign was run quite well.  But, if someone upped their pledge at the end to the $700 level because they thought they'd be able to sell the variant binder for $100 to recover some of their costs, they're probably not very happy right now that people who pledged much lower amounts can now order one for $50.
Title: Re: Mars Attacks Occupation Wacky Promo!
Post by: Alexeirex on June 06, 2015, 10:52:26 AM
I agree with Dr Deal's quoted paragraph about the variant binder - i agonized for days about going up to the $700 bundle and figured out how to change my pledge amount before I finalized the pledge. Now you can get it for $50 as an add-on??? Perhaps they won't include the exclusive card that goes with it. Was initially really pissed when they announced all the additional items you could purchase after the fact and including new pledgers and am glad they amended that....A
Title: Re: Mars Attacks Occupation Wacky Promo!
Post by: DrDeal on June 12, 2015, 03:06:40 AM
Latest word is the Variant Binders will NOT be offered as Add-Ons. Now we are working on them to not allow additional purchases of extra pledge levels as Add-Ons.
Being allowed to Upgrade your pledge level seems reasonable. That is what I proposed; along with others. Time will tell. The post campaign survey comes out in a few days.

Neil,

   Those sketch cards are sweet! Will you be doing a green logo Sketch return too? What others will you be doing?  Yours Mars Attacks Wackies are cool enough to warrant their own release as a subset.  Maybe you could make a set of repro's of all the MA Wackies you do and sell them on this site???

Whoa!!! Latest Mars Attacks Kickstarter Update has some cool news! 

"On sheet one below you'll notice a series of Wacky Packages cards along the right side.

This is a special 9-card set that we'll provide FREE to all backers who purchased a physical product!  We were hoping to keep these a surprise, but after the most recent delay we thought we'd announce them to make up for the inconvenience.

These 9 images were sketch cards by Neil Camera that we decided were just too cool to only be sketch cards!  Neil graciously cleaned up and spruced up the sketches in Photoshop and we are printing them as special Kickstarter Exclusive Bonus Cards!"

They're baking it into the rewards people already pledged for - for free (as long as they pledged for a physical reward).  So if you pledged for a physical reward back in June, you get a set of the cards.  And it SOUNDS like it's one set per backer, though that's just how I read it.

I myself did end up becoming a backer sort of at the 11th hour and opted in for a hobby box reward.  So for me this is "cool news"...  but I understand your pain. 

I wouldn't be surprised however if these "Kickstarter Exclusive Cards" somehow make it into a future Wacky subset, as non-exclusive stickers.

With the lack of Wacky postcards and Old School last year, after seeing the Attacky Packages promo I went to town on this MAO offering, and am eagerly anticipating delivery.  I really liked the options to be guaranteed special subsets, and the extra bonuses added after pledges increased was a treat.  This wacky subset is awesome icing on the cake!  Hopefully there will be a few available on ebay.  I pledged for extra Attacky Packages promo cards, and can help forum friends with those.

while there is an "ATTACKY PACKAGES" it's not the same one used on the promo, which Neil did at a larger size for the official card.

The above quote is from a update on the MA kickstarter. So it looks like the Attacky Packages card in the Wacky subset will differ from the promo card.

Also, kudos to Adam Levine for listening to the Wacky fans. Since he still may be listening, let me make sure to express my interest in seeing these produced in some form to be made available for those of us not participating in the Mars Attacks Kickstarter.

Lastly, when all the sketch cards were delivered, we found Neil had done 8-10 different Wacky Packages themed sketches. After he shared them with WP fans online, it was suggested that Topps produced a printed set of them.
Once we realized we had about 9-10 open slots on our main printing plate, Neil offered to scan and clean up the sketch cards he drew (removing the corner logo, for instance) and we slapped them in at the last minute-- complete with a 9-piece puzzle of the "Attacky Packages" promo across the backs.
We were hoping to keep them a surprise, but after our latest delay we wanted to show them off so fans could understand how hard we're working to make their rewards extra special, and to make sure they knew the extra wait would be worth it!
-Topps

There are 9 cards in the set. The tenth, at the bottom, is the original "Wacky Packages" Promo card included in the campaign. The original art for that one was drawn at a larger size, which is why it does not appear as a sketch card that can be found in packs. However, Neil did draw an "Attacky Packages" sketch card which will be randomly distributed, it's just not the one used to create the promo.

The above is taken from the kickstarter site. So Neil did an Attacky Packages Sketch that we can pull out of a pack which differs from the promo card. Cool!

The 9 card set having the puzzle on the back is sooooo cool.  This set will be a keeper.

I wonder if down the road this subset will be referred to as "Attacky Packages"?  You just used that name ; even though that is only the name of one card in the set.

Pretty good idea if you ask me.  I can't recall a better cross promotion for Wackies ever!  So cool to see Topps act on the suggestion to make Neil's sketches into cards.  With all the misses from Topps in the last year or so...This Kickstarter has made it all OK IMO.

"Attacky Packages" Bonus Set Update
Posted by The Topps Company
Quick update with some good news.
We've done the homework and realized that for collation and packing it's just simpler and easier to treat all 10 of the "Attacky Packages" cards as one item, rather than two: as the initial mashup and the 9-card bonus set.
What this means is that EVERY physical order has been automatically upgraded to receive all 10 of these cards.
It ALSO means that if you paid to receive any ADDITIONAL copies of the mashup card (as per the $5 add-on) we'll be giving you the full set of 10 for each copy you ordered.
So if you paid for 5 Wacky Promos, for example, you'll also get 5 sets of the 9-card bonus set!

Another piece of information concerning the "Wacky Attack" cards...

From Kickstarter Project Update #123...

"For now, here is a look at the foil sheet, and as you can see there will be foil versions of the Dinosaurs Attack and Wacky Packages cards, something we hadn't originally planned for. Complete sets of the DA and WP foils will automatically be added to anyone at the $700 and $1350 reward levels.  Once we determine how many remain after that we will begin considering options for how to distribute the remainder.   They will either be added to the pool of foil cards in packs, or given in sets at specific levels.  "

Do you all think that the sheet contains a complete set of DA foils and MA foils? Or is there more, considering how large the set of MA will be?
Good to know that some of us will be getting the Wacky set in foils and am wondering how many sets in total will be printed. Trying to figure
that out, but that will depend on the MA sets....

You can tell from the picture that, at least, all 10 of the Wacky titles are on the foil sheet. I can't make out enough detail here at work to see whether there is a full DA foil set, but I would suspect so. As you indicated, there should be a foil DA and foil WA set for each foil MA base set printed.  It sounds like the extras will most likely be placed into packs.

Good assessment! I was thinking 9x10 = 90 cards, didn't see the 10th column/row....

Another piece of information concerning the "Wacky Attack" cards...

From Kickstarter Project Update #123...

"For now, here is a look at the foil sheet, and as you can see there will be foil versions of the Dinosaurs Attack and Wacky Packages cards, something we hadn't originally planned for. Complete sets of the DA and WP foils will automatically be added to anyone at the $700 and $1350 reward levels.  Once we determine how many remain after that we will begin considering options for how to distribute the remainder.   They will either be added to the pool of foil cards in packs, or given in sets at specific levels.  "

Learning that there will be foil Wackys is great news. Makes me even happier I sprung for a high end bundle. Now I can tell my wife our funds were well spent.  ;)

I would agree.  It's pretty cool that if you went heavy into this set that you get some extra-special bonuses.  They're definitely delivering the goods on this one.

Hopefully when the Attacky Packages sets start to sell for good money on the aftermarket;  Topps will start to feel that Old School on Kickstarter makes sense.

I have been thinking about the Foil Attacky Packages sets. They will ship about forty of these sets to those who purchased the $700 and $1350 bundles. They are not sure how the rest of the printed foil Attacky Packages will be distributed. That will make these sets pretty rare. Not sure how many will be resold as most high end buyers will only receive one set. I know I will be keeping mine. Maybe some MA Fans that don't care about WP will sell their sets; but won't they keep them because they are part of the MA set? Will the fact that the basic Attacky Packages set will be available at decent prices due to it being included with the promo card make the foil sets less sought after since they are only a variant set and not a unique image set? I guess the foil set really mostly appeal to MA and WP collectors who want everything released.

I'll certainly be keeping my foil set, and I figure anyone else who ponied up for the high level pledges will want to keep whatever is included as a part of the overall release, whether or not they are Wacky collectors.  If Topps ends up distributing the extras as inserts in packs, we'll probably see singles for sale, and dealers who bought mass quantities to break cases could possibly build extra sets.

Pretty sure that's an "in-progress" shot.  I suspect that the cutting happens and somehow the cards get mixed up after that, leading to the need for this hand-collation to occur.

Just figured that since all the Wackys were on one sheet, they would be cutting about the same number of each. But I certainly don't know the process they are using.

They are cutting the same number of each.  But when that sheet is cut, it is likely part of a stack, and then whatever process takes those hundreds and hundreds of cards and delivers them to someone for collation.  They then have to sort out the Attacky Pack ones from the others, and then collate out each into the system shown. 

I'm just assuming there are steps we are not considering that lead to this shot, other than there being "short prints".  It's been made pretty clear that there are not, and that these are coming out in complete sets.  They just aren't coming directly out of the printer/cutter in complete set form and need to be brought together by a process and by hand.

Here was an interesting blurb on Kickstarter for MA Occupation -

Hobby boxes: in process of die cutting and hot foil stamping. So far, about 400 silver foil boxes folded and glued. will need 850 silver, 160 green foil, 75 red foil, 50 gold foil.

Did Topps mention about the differently stamped hobby boxes previously? And are these the general boxes that contain the packs, or the boxes that contain the complete sets? I don't recall any level or price differential on either of those items, so the different colored foils are a surprise. I do recall different levels/colors of sketches.
If these are the boxes containing the packs, it looks like 1,135 total boxes are to be produced - not a lot of product.

I am getting the Supreme Bundle with a Red Foil Stamp. So I get a super rare box. That's an interesting point.  I knew my bundle comes with one hobby box of cards in addition to the complete sets of cards. I plan on opening the packs in the box to try to score an auto or a metal card. Each box has two "hits" One will be a sketch and the other will be an Auto, a metal, or a lumber card. I did not spring for the pack filled with all the artist auto's ; but I would like to get one of them. Maybe I will be able to trade for one.

I'm still wondering why they are putting different color foil stamps on boxes - aren't the contents the same?  Apparently I missed something.

Lumber cards I thought were MLB Wackys.  Did you mean letterpress?

Hot Wheels and Wackies are my thing and MA is a recent fascination for me as it originally came out before I collected cards. That sketch is the BEST. Thanks so much for posting the pic.

Very exciting time in the MA camp as the impending arrival of the Kickstarter bundles looms. They are set to announce another surprise for campaign supporters any day. The KS campaign has been like a trip inside the chocolate factory. We have watched the set go from idea to reality and have been asked for input and ideas along the way. Hopefully the multiple requests for WP OS6 on KS were heard. You can't say we didn't try on that front.

Well, the newest update came out and there's a delay that's going to push back shipping a couple of weeks; due to a last-minute art change on the wrappers and the company printing them not printing enough, along with some signed cards not coming in. 

The amazing news is that they've created more Attacky Packages cards!

Also, it sounds like these are truly just a bonus and not an addition to the existing Attacky Packages set.  Based on the wording in the update, a single set of these will be included to each backer who had a physical reward.   "Now the good news:   We have added 3 new bonus cards which will be sent out to all backers with physical rewards!"

I gotta admit, I've had a hard time following what is what (or who's getting what) in this series, but I've liked all the images I've seen.  This one may be my new favorite, though.  Very well done!

You're right, the MAO is a pretty elaborate set. In a nutshell, most of it is straight up martians: the base set, a variety of subsets, as well as bonus cards/kickstarter extras. There's also a Dinosaur Attacks subset and the "Attacky Packages" subset, which is a bit of an anomoly since it combines Wackys and martians! I tried to tie the two together as much as possible, but I'll leave it to collectors to decide if it's more on the Wacky side or more on the martian side! In any event, I hope you enjoy it! It certainly was fun!

Well, about that... here is an excerpt from today's Kickstarter update and note the part in red:


After reviewing the 134 updates, and almost 1400 comments, we have come up with a list of the various items that will be included in each package sent to backers who selected a physical reward.
 cards for all physical backers cards for all physical backers

3 Variants of the P1 Philly Non Sports Card Show promo
1 Promo card distributed in the Non-Sport Update Magazine
1 "The Armageddon Directive" card
2 IDW promo cards
1 P3 Promo
1 GPK crossover card
1 Attacky Packages card
1 printing plate
9 Attacky Packages subset
3 Attacky Packages "old school" subset cards
A total of 23 items!

Every printing plate will be unique, the one shown in the photograph is an example.

The first 76 shipments to backers were sent out lacking the 12 Attacky Packages subset cards. A second shipment of the cards that were omitted will be sent to those backers.

Note: only the first 250 backers (chronological) will receive a game card from Steve Jackson Games.

People are complaining on the KS site about receiving incomplete orders.  I think everyone needs to consider the magnitude of their task over there with a very small staff. They have stated orders missing cards will be made whole. The team needs to be given credit for trying very hard to make everyone happy and deliver on their commitments.

Thank Adam Levine. He's overseeing the MAO release and was instrumental in moving this set forward.

Neil,

Considering how much of a key player Adam Levine has been in the MAO Kickstarter, and the Attacky Packages set, what's the deal with him apparently "no longer being employed by Topps"?

Just saw this on the comments thread of the Kickstarter campaign.... from yesterday, at the end of a response by Topps:

"Please note Adam Levine is no longer with Topps."

I got into the MA cards because of the Saunders link. I backed the project because I like MA. I went for a higher end bundle mainly due to the alternate binder. Getting all the Wacky Cards including a foil set of them was like a dream come true.  Topps really delivered much more than they promised on this project!  I hope it will lead to Old School on Kickstarter. I certainly know I voiced many requests during the MA campaign for Old School to be next.

I am wondering what the demand for the foil variant MA/WP Mashups will be? With about 40 people receiving full sets of these I doubt too many full sets will be resold as they will be kept by hardcore MA collectors since they are a real part of the set. That will translate into most people having to assemble a set piecemeal. Am I correct to say the set will be 12 cards (9 cards with puzzle backs and 3 old school cards) Is the Attacky Packages card going to come in a foil variant too?
I will be keeping my set; but wonder if many WP collectors will care too much about these variants since they can pick up the regular versions of these cards and have the images.

Can anyone estimate the number of complete metal base sets of MAO? I didn't go the distance to order the deluxe package that includes a set because the extra $600 or so seemed so steep. I know the most expensive package contained a full set, but you could also conceivably pull a full set from packs and boxes too.

My understanding from the updates is that the regular Attacky Packages promo card, plus the 9 with the puzzle backs, will be produced as foils because they were placed for printing on the main sheet that was also used for foils.  The last three "Old School" cards seem to have been produced separately, and I will be (pleasantly) surprised if they are also included as foils.

Back in August, Topps estimated that 35 metal sets of 55 cards would be produced.  It looks like about 24 people pledged for levels that would include complete metal sets.  So, maybe there will be 11 or so sets, equivalent to 605 metal cards, inserted as hits in packs?  A daunting task indeed.

I know Pat / Raw Goo has done a tremendous job on helping out forum folk -- three cheers for Pat  :13: I'm hoping to share the promos with those who want to keep them, rather than flip on ebay. If you don't already have a set let me know. I was going to post images of the sketches I pulled (I was very excited to get one of Neil's Dinosaurs Attacks sketches!), and a scan of a Mars Attacks sketch from a previous series that was a another wacky mash up by Neil, but I can't get the scan to be small enough for postimage to accept...

Now I'm just dying for Wacky-Mars Attacks series 2!


Neil needs to release his own limited edition set of these cards and sell them here on the forum. That would be awesome!

Sorry, no plans to sell these. But maybe a giveaway? I don't know. Just talking out loud...

How about a giveaway along with a $40 donation to the charity of Neil's choice?  That would be pretty awesome!

How about a $40 paypal gift payment to Neil and he keeps $10 to offset set production expenses/ shipping and donates $30 to his charity of choice. Once the charity drive is over Neil could share how much in total was donated.

Nothin' magical. Assuming you use Windows, open the image in Paint and on the Home tab in the Image section is a drop down labeled "Rotate". Select whichever option makes sense for your image (in this case, it was Rotate right 90o) and resave the image. Voila!

Rotating is also an option within postimage, if the image is saved there.

You mean the same people who promised Drdeal his uncut sheet? You mean the same people who said there would be a regular Wacky set released in 2016. You mean the same people who know absolutely nothing about what goes on within the company? You mean those people??? If so, I've already quit before I got started!

You are our only hope Obi Wan Camera.

Some of these are great, but they don't have to be parodies of parodies. They can still spoof the original products used in vintage Wacky Packages.

For instance...Oscar The Martian can be simplified to Oscar Martian based on Oscar Mayer.

This mashup set is screaming to be made. Topps would be insane not to make this happen based on what has been posted. Clearly, the art and the demand are there.

They should do a Kickstarter for it if they are afraid to pull the trigger. That way the risk is reduced and we can show our support.

Topps is not some Mom & Pop shop needing capital to run their operations. I think that Wacky Packages line probably sells pretty consistent, if not just because of us kids of the 70's. Now the marketing feedback might help gauge support but I am sure they know about this site among many others that talk about trading cards.

I think Topps blundered with trying to mix-up the non-sports cards with sports cards with the Wacky Packages MLB set. I for one, while collecting sports cards when young, have since strayed away from most sports cards. I have specifically made it a hobby to collect non-sports cards. Perhaps I have gone a little overboard with my collection but I truly like the all non-sports stuff. I have no interest in the WP MLB set, Hello Topps...

Mixing up other non-sports titles, like Mars Attacks, with Wacky Packages probably will sell better than the WP MLB. I think a lot of people do not relate with sports and having trading cards that specifically are not sports related draw a good crowd. A lot of creative "artsy" folks are not driven by sports. Currently a huge crowd is the Cosplay crowd, if they could only figure out a way to merge non-sports cards with the Cosplay crowd they might pull off the the Wacky Packages line of the 21st century...

It took me awhile to get into MLB Wacky Packages but in the end, I really enjoyed collecting the set.  It had some some fun, off beat gags and a nice but modest range of chase items.  I loved the fact that the promos cards were released with this years MLB set and the sketch cards were top notch.  We've had Wackys for near 50 years (on and off) and I can't fault Topps too much for trying to mix it up.

Well someone must have liked MLB as the sketch cards sold like hotcakes on eBay.  I had wanted to get a version of White Sox Relish from each artist and only ended up with three and had to fight to get them!  Luckily I was able to get a few returns from artists to help round out my collection.

Neil, do you have a specific email or phone number (and name) of whom to contact?  I'd be happy to do that, even if it was a longshot.

I've really enjoyed your wacky-Mars mashups.  I'd certainly love to see a set!  Also, is there one place (on this forum or elsewhere) where you have all the various titles you've created?  I'd enjoy seeing them all in one spot and knowing I didn't miss out on any.

Thanks, as always, for keeping wackys fresh and fun!

Glad you like my mars wacky mashups! Most of the titles I've posted can be seen in this thread, although there's still a few that haven't been posted yet. I like to space them out (no pun intended).

By the way, I was trying to be tongue in cheek when I said to contact a rep. They're already well aware of the set and if they want to do a 2nd series, they know where to contact me.

Can we come up with some different bundle options and pledge levels to choose from?

Here are some Options:   Edit with proposed changes / deletions / additions.

Option 1:Basic 30 card Base set with a 9 card puzzle and one wrapper and one Sketch:   $40

Option 2: Everything in Option 1  plus 9 "Chase" cards- Theme TDB:  $60

Option 3: Everything in option 2 plus Concept set of 30 Base cards: $100

Option 4:  ____________

In case we need to resurrect him for unlimited future sketches?  >:D >:D >:D ;D ;D

love how the Angry on the box side is only 4 letters, as an homage to the shortened Hungry on the original Wacky
Hmmmm...I see all 5 letters there. Is it an optical illusion?

I use the 'add image to post' function and I think all of the pictures end up to be the same size as there is max size limit.
I don't link from photobucket or another photo sharing site.
Does anyone out there know how to increase the size of an image using this forum's feature? A

Your Dratz image above is 452 x 640 (nice and large) but this one is 126 X 180 and small.

I've been stumped by this inconsistency in the size of posted images.

(If you want to send it to me in a PM, it should come thru large, as I've never had an issue like this on PM, and I can post it via Photobucket)

It would be nice to know what the deal is...

No changes - they are great the way they are!  I own the "Ran-A-Way" sketch, and don't mind that cards were made from it.

Thanks Pat! Just one note, most of the art was drawn on standard size sketch cards and if these were ever to became a set, I'd probably want to paint them at least 5x7 so that details (like the text) were crisper. Otherwise, those little net weight gags look kind of sloppy in print ;)

Neil,

     Is there any possibility of you making a small number of sets of cards made from your scans of these sketches for forum members? Since we are talking about sketches and not actual cards; I thought maybe the rules might be a tad more lax. I bet alot of us would be up for acquiring a set of these sketches as cards.
You could sell a set of the cards along with one original sketch. You could limit it to forum members and have us pre-pay to fund the endeavor.  Thanks for all you do!

Andrew
Title: Re: Mars Attacks Occupation Wacky Promo!
Post by: koduck on January 30, 2017, 06:32:48 PM
Wish I could but unfortunately, without explicit permission from Topps, printing them is out of the question. To make a set, each one would need to be an original piece of painted art and I'd probably need years to pull that off!

However, if enough people were to let Topps know, maybe they'd consider letting me print a set. Dunno.
Title: Re: Mars Attacks Occupation Wacky Promo!
Post by: DrDeal on February 02, 2017, 03:10:46 AM
Neil,

 What about posting a digital library of the Sketches you have done for this set so we could print out our own copies.
I would do that.

Andrew
