Did you guys hear that there's gonna be a 90-card movie-based set coming this March?

If not, check Beckett and Cardboardconnection.

To answer the question I know everyone is wondering: Yes, it's all real products this time. There are product parodies and movie poster parodies. Don't know the ratio but more products to posters I'm sure.

This one was actually a fun one to paint. Much better than the 50th. Having real products mixed with movie characters worked out well. Think a set of Planet of the Grapes and Gums style gags.

Finishing up my last ones on Wednesday. I'll have 22 in the set. Wrote an additional 8.

Movies are products. We purchase them, consume them, and sometimes purchase them again (and again on VHS, and DVD, and Blu-ray, and streaming services, and digital downloads). Not sure how they could be categorized otherwise.

Maybe Dave can pitch the idea of "Wacky Packages Goes to the Movies Old School" and work up some vintage movie poster parodies.  Heck, the cover of Gums (15th) pretty much already captures that.

I'd start with "The French Fries Connection" and "The Six-Urps" (Seven-Ups), two of my personal faves.

Funny you should say that as I did ask them to do an Old School subset again using 1970s movies but they decided to only do modern films.

I think this set is pushing the definition of "packages."  It probably should've been called Wacky Movie Posters, but Topps wanted to capitalize on the name recognition of Wacky Packages.

For some reason they are showing more posters than packages. All 22 I painted are traditional real product packages and I know many more are as well. I think there are more packages than posters.

There was always a mix of adult and kid humor in Wacky Packages. I don't see it in this set (though I'll take a look) and am not interested.

I agree, this set was a little more fun to "conceive," if that's the right word?

I have 4 titles in there, not as many as I hoped, but the four ones I have are goodies!

Yes there were fun.  I did a great Tums parody, but they went with the Tomb Raider one instead, I'll have to make it on my own one of these days...

Wacky "Packages"  ... packages.  How is that movie posters?  I wasn't even happy when magazines were dropped into the series.

Granted they may be fun to paint.  That's fine.  But they're not packages.

Oh well, we had the baseball cards subset in Old School.  At least this is a subset.   :-X :-X :-X

Planet of the Grapes was a parody of a Topps package product.  Gums I'm not too fond of, but at least it was a physical product; a book.  These movie posters look nothing like Wacky Packages.

I don't think you read what I wrote. I did 22 paintings and every one of them is a standard Wacky Package using a real product but also using a movie character in it. Like Aqua Fresh, Wonder Bread, stuff like that. I think most of the set is like this but there are also movie posters like the ones shown already. Apparently they didn't have enough of the product ones ready when they made up the ad sheet.

I'm not a fan of this idea whatever form it takes.   I do respect you and your talent and not impinging on the artwork.  It is the vision for this series I can't say I agree with.

Here's an idea.  Topps wants movie posters?  Make a return of the Wacky Posters with movie posters as the theme.  :great:

I will give the set a chance after the disaster computer generated junk I saw in the 50th set. The mere mention of PAINTING gives me hope that there will be hopefully some great gags and execution.

Yea I skipped that set also.    Sorry to sound so negative...I think Topps has lost it's way with the series.  Hope to be proven wrong, but after the 50th and now this... :sad:

You must be talking about one particular artist (I wonder who?). I know I painted all my cards last series and Neil, Smokin Joe, Brent, Joe Simko, Joe Grossberg (so many Joes...) and Fred did as well.

Although I'm pleased to see that there will be another Wacky series on deck, I do feel pretty gun-shy after the 50th set and just the general direction the series have taken lately (for the love of God, please stop with the colored borders!  They're almost as bad as poop and fart jokes!).  I'm encouraged that many of these are based on real products and glad to see that Dave has done 22 for the set.  From what I saw of the inserts, they're as uncreative and uninteresting as they could be.  I'd love to see magnets, lenticulars, and even foil stickers over most of the inserts these days.  I hope there are some pleasant surprises along the way.  And I did see a couple original series stickers represented on the sell sheet, so I hope those won't be found at astronomical odds.

Yah, the colored borders don't do anything for me.  Topps has a lot of cool parallel sets in their other products.  At the very least, they could do x-fractors like in the past.  Clear plastic cards would be cool.  My favorite wacky/GPK inserts are magnets though, as you can slap them on the fridge or filing cabinet in the office.

I really enjoy kiss-cut magnets.  The only border variation that has appealed to me was the completely black "canvas" background.

I'm still hoping for a mini-set with "scratch and sniff" on there.

Could be good smells (chocolate, pine scented air freshener, lemon)
and bad as well (rotten eggs, garlic, dirt). 

Years and years ago there was a Simpson set that had a few cards
like this, I think it would be awesome!

I wouldn't want those.  I had a scratch and sniff shirt as a kid, and the scent got everywhere.  And even though it was pizza, which I love, the scent deteriorated.  I wouldn't want a binder of cards to get smelly.

With so many Ovary Show stickers being sold as of late; I am sure Norm is pissed. He did that painting as a goof for his editor. He never intended for us to see it.

Now its all over Ebay in multiple formats. That's too bad. Prior to this latest "Lost Wacky" push; I had probably viewed that title 7 times in my life. Now I feel like I see it a every day when searching Ebay for "Lost Wackies". Most of the time it is uncensored; which puts a bad light on our hobby.

Post by: slamjim on March 12, 2018, 02:03:04 PM
The whole point of cutting the black border down to that teeny one was to make the art bigger. Adding a logo kinda goes contrary to that. All my autograph cards were white cards with a super thin black border.

Is it correct that a complete set of base cards + Bonus Cards would be the 90 card set plus the 20 card small screen and 20 card classic film card sets? 130 cards.

Are there any other sets of cards to acquire not counting alternate borders and patch cards?

Meant to say 'chase card' subsets. These don't have "B" names, so I'd say they don't belong on the bonus/promo list.
Although it is a fine line between chase card sets exclusive to specific boxes vs the older ANS bonus cards that were exclusive to specific packs.

Looks like the base set is all black cards which I think looks great. The thin black borders just don't work as you lose the 3D look to the packaging. Will take all black any time over that. It's totally new for WP but I'm good with it.

yep. it all seems to be looking exactly the same as the 50th, with regards to full-bleed borders and the base and parallel colors.

wish they would have changed the yellow and bronze in the Collector boxes, don't think those borders work at all.

I seem to always get stocked late around here, but it seems like the value packs have always taken another week or two after the display/bonus/gravity feeds show up.

Nice artwork, gags, etc. on this title, but letting this mistake slip past is inexcusable.  I wonder if all of the cards are like this or just some?

On another note, I could be mistaken, but shouldn't the word "tissue" in Monions" be plural?

This is why I love when David shows us his original art scans. So many details are lost on press, aside from Topps error here. The traditional black border looks soooooooo much nicer. I think the all black background actually creates more problems for the pre-press department, where they have to make adjustments to the other process inks to compensate. The brown border on Freddy Grahams has a nice crisp dark chocolate color on the original art, but on the final printed sticker, it appears more of a muted milk chocolate color. Thank you David for sharing your art and concept sketches with us!

The brown border on Freddy Grahams has a nice crisp dark chocolate color on the original art, but on the final printed sticker, it appears more of a muted milk chocolate color. Thank you David for sharing your art and concept sketches with us!

Thanks! Agree on the borders and man, they really can't let stuff like this happen.

We can't do any Disney products so that includes Marvel as well.

Just curious... do you know when the Disney C&D was implemented? I remember some sketch cards portraying the AJERX character as various Marvel heroes for one of the ANS sets, I believe. I will have to check at home tonight. Either they were issued before the C&D or they snuck in under the radar.  They may have even been issued prior to the Disney acquisition of Marvel.

The Bar-B-Q one is my gag, based on a Barbie movie that was due out soon.  the Frosty one was a surprise that was intended for the On Demand holiday set and I didn't even know that this was excepted until mid February.  I have no idea of the movie correlation but I'm not a movie fanatic in general I confess.

lots of great stuff in this set and it's killing me that I'm away and thinking there's a big box of product waiting for me 1500 miles away or so  ;). I'm still trying to figure out these subsets though.

Hey Baked Bears! If it should be box of tissues, that would be my error, but I did search just that as I wrote the gag and seemed to find more references to "box of tissue" so I went with that.


Zerostreet,

Like I mentioned, I could be mistaken in regard to this.  My comment wasn't implying that you were in error, though, but rather Topps - who has a proven history of printing typos, etc., and who has just committed one of their more spectacular blunders (which is why my comments were grouped together in the same post.)

By the way, love "Monions" and showed it to my students who also appreciated it, as well.

Thanks! No worries, I understood where you were coming from. In my short time doing base cards, I've had Topps rewrite some of my gags. I do proceed hoping they are checked somewhere down the line (beyond what I may research/proof read myself!)

Glad you and your students liked Monions!

Looks like we might have a legit new lost 90's Wacky in the Classic Film set?
 
The "No Hair on Elm Street" in the Classic Film set is a spot on parody of the late 80's/early 90's VHS video cover, and inclusion of Sinead O'Conner is of the zeitgeist.
This one looks to be in a plastic clam shell case versus the simple cardboard slip cover that was common, but provides a way to have hair strands sticking out all sides.

Thoughts?

I just looked at the Topps site, and was surprised to see that the box and packs make the stickers look like they are the traditional black border on a white background, not the full bleed black. 

After checking out the variations, subsets, and prices, looks like I'll just be buying a base set on ebay.  I do miss the fun of pack killing   :sad:
Title: Re: 2018 Wacky Packages goes to the Movies
Post by: Baked Bears on March 17, 2018, 11:20:57 AM
From what I've seen thus far, there are some nice titles in "Wacky Packages Goes to the Movies."

Once again, though, I am confused as to what age bracket Topps is targeting.  I was under the impression that these titles would only be based upon recent theatrical releases.  Instead, they span decades.  If Topps is targeting 8 - 10 year old children, many of these titles will be completely unfamiliar to them, particularly when it comes to the chase sets.  In addition, as much as I appreciate, say, "The Scare Bears: Reign of Terror," is this title really appropriate for this age bracket (especially with its decapitated and disemboweled children?) 

Also, if Topps is catering to the 50+ age bracket, I wish they would have offered collectors something new (as opposed to titles we have already seen before) - even a small 10 card chase set featuring parodies of "The Exorcist," "Saturday Night Fever," and other classic films.  (True, the 8 - 10 year old audience might not "get" these.  But they're not going to get "The Da Vinci Cold" or "The Woman With The Draggin' Tattoo," either.  In fact, I'll go as far as to say that kids today will probably be more familiar with "Saturday Night Fever" - and John Travolta's famous disco stance - than "Da Vinci" or "Draggin' Tattoo.")  Instead, Topps gave us (at least) 30 - 40 titles that most of us already have in our possession, albeit in different forms (which serves only to generate a larger profit margin.)  I, for one, would have gladly spent a few dollars more, however, for an additional small chase set as described above.  ("Creature Crackers" was great.  I'll always love it.  But is there actually a demand for it?  A demand so great that people today are clamoring for a reprint?)

I was also under the impression that Topps altered the black borders on WP to accommodate larger artwork.  Yet, we still have the same size artwork, only this time around with an added WP logo.  I do, however, appreciate the black backgrounds - especially when compared to some of the chase set backgrounds, specifically the classic film title backgrounds which I find highly distracting.  I'd rather be dazzled with quality, craftsmanship, artistry, and meticulous, well thought out planning than just crazy designs and bright colors.

It would also have been nice to parody Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, Muppets, etc..  One would think that with Eisner's many contacts, he would have a bit of sway with Disney.  I would think that Disney would welcome the opportunity for additional - and free - advertising, if handled correctly.  Not all parodies have to be gross, blood splattered, demeaning, and/or disparaging.  It's almost a lost art now, but some things can simply just be funny without going over the top.  ("Monions" would be a good example.)  And if it's a matter of licensing fees, well then, pay up.  Sometimes it's necessary to make an investment to garner greater returns.  I'm sure Topps pays other licensing fees.  So what's the deal when it comes to WP?

Again, some good artwork and humor here - and the "lost" cards are a nice bonus - but as with the 50th Anniversary release, a set of this magnitude could have been better, something refreshing to astound you, take your breath away, and make you gasp, "Wow!  Now this is a damn fine set!"  (Instead of "Hmmm.  Well, half of the 150 card set is good.")

I've seen some of the great new titles posted here, which is why I'll buy a base set.  But Topps is recycling an awful lot of titles in the subsets, and I can't see chasing those; I bought Flashbacks because they weren't expensive, and I could stick them.  And I hate the loss of the kiss-cuts.  Between that and the full bleed black, these won't even be fun to stick or make magnets of, and will probably just end up in a box somewhere.

I agree on this one. The Botched Baby Wacky is crazy-and I mean crazy as in insane. It looks like an Ugly Stickers reject that didn't know when to say "when"-or when to say "Stop!". I mean it-if looks could kill, then just a glance at that thing and you'd be dead (by the way, I mean all this in a good way).

You think those two are bad? When my mom and dad were dating back in the 1950s, they were watching The Fly (first version) at the local drive-in. They fell asleep during the movie and were awakened long after everyone had gone home and the movie was over. After realizing what time it was, Dad drove quickly out-but he forgot that he still had the drive-in speaker still attached to the car door! Three guesses as to what happened after that and the first two don't count. Many, many years later Mom went to see Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone at a theater (a regular one) and she quietly fell asleep at the part where Harry, in the train station, goes through the brick wall in the muggle world and ends up in the wizarding world's train station. She hasn't seen the movie since.

other than the "2049" oz., the PowerBlade is really a play on the old 1982 Blade Runner, as the character looks like Deckard from the original film and not the new one.

Even when I recognize the movie tie-in, to me this subset of titles has a disconnect similar to the MLB Wackys.  However, unlike the latter, at least the "movie products" marry with the broader theme of the set and make a little more sense when viewed strictly within the overall context of the set.

After the soft roll out of the bonus boxes last week (a week before the scheduled release date of today - 3/21), I expected to see gravity feeds and bonus packs out today but after visiting 2 Targets, I saw nothing new.  One Target had the same booster box out with some packs available but nothing else, the other Target didn't have anything out at all.

In addition, nothing from Topps promoting the "New" release.

What gives???

I think they are GPK collectors who branched out into Wackys and are trying to apply the same metrics to Wackys as they do in GPK.  The bic lighter gold Godzilla was pulled by a GPK collector and he compared it to the chrome superfractors.

Very soft.

I stopped by Target today and couldn't believe the Exel rep was there restocking as I walked in. I asked about the Wackys and he said he had none for this store, he opened all the boxes he had and nothing! In talking to him I learned he stocks all the Targets in the area. He recalled the boxes he left at the Ft Lauderdale Target, which is where Paul Harris and I had found some...he wondered why he didn't have any more though. Oh well...I have some coming in today from D&A's via UPS!

Happy to see my MAD MUTT featured on the box!

The Box Toppers are pretty nice!

I have to concur with the idea put out by mikecho - does Topps even care about Wackys anymore?

Not only has there been a lack of product in stores, but there has not been a single mention in any of the daily emails Topps sends out to their mailing list.

Can someone on these boards in the know comment on this?  With this lack of attention, is another set even possible?

I'm hoping it's just a hang up in distribution. As I mentioned earlier in the thread my local targets seem to get stocked weeks after the street date. It happened with the last few GPK sets as well.

they did mention them once, back on March 14th. The same day that they prominently announced the new baseball "living set" with a gigantic pic of Aaron Judge, their current money maker.
Wackys got buried way down in the email.

I didn't see that Fanatical_and_Sickly but I do find it interesting that they only referenced the Collector Edition box.

I just went to the website and that is the only item for sale as well - no Hobby Box, no Bonus Box.

I think we can all agree that Topps did not put their "A" effort in marketing this release.

It's a little confusing, because if you look, for example, at the WP Unopened Pack Reference thread, most of the images still show. The links back then refer to the domain postimage.org. Ultimately, it was changed to postimg.org, and that is the domain that no longer works. So I believe replacing postimg.org with postimg.cc would be effective.

I've never seen the underlying software.  I pretty much just move misplaced threads and watch out for spammers (which have been non-existent since the new user sign in stopped working correctly).

However, I can edit posts, so if no one objects, if I find myself up all night, unable to sleep, I could start editing some of the more "important" threads.  Any post I change will show that I edited it, with a date.

If anyone objects, LMK and I won't touch your posts.  If anyone would like me to attempt this for their posts, LMK.  Of course, if you're willing to change your own, that would be fantastic.  I'd also appreciate suggestions on which thread(s) to start with - I'm thinking the one with the Wacky and the original packaging, and maybe the "This Week in Your Collection."

We'll see how much I can manage without my fingers falling off   :P

In case anyone is interested, this was my submission for the NinjaGo, for the Movie set.

I was always worried that the joke got a bit lost in translation, as the final drawing didn't
show any fruit being chopped by the karate chop kick...you get the idea.

Now back to the program....

By using phpMyAdmin you can do a global search and replace. You open the smf database, choose the smf_messages table, click on the search tab and pick search and replace on the body column. It will then give you a preview of all of the changes that will be made so you  can verify before you click replace. Just make sure to backup the database first.

What tool did you use for find and replace?

I used phpMyAdmin. It is usually an option in your hosting control panel for SQL databases.

Maybe you have an earlier version than what I have. I have 4.7.7. Click on the house icon under phpMyAdmin on the left column and it will show your version on left.

I guess that is a feature that was added in newer versions. I know a search and replace can be done with SQL but I don't know enough about it to help.
