Yes! We are going to partner with one spoofed product manufacturer each month to produce a limited edition product in packaging based on the Wacky! (gotcha!)

Re: low numbers for January, at least in my emails from Topps, all week long they never promoted the Wacky Packages set at the bottom of the emails among the other 5-8 products they want to promote.  Usually, they're down there at the bottom of the emails all week long while they're live.  Come to think of it, I don't even think they had a "Last Chance" promo on Wednesday morning's email.  So, lack of promotion may have been a problem here.  We may very well see non-regular forum members come on later and say, "I totally missed it!"

That likely didn't help.  I'm responsible for a drop of 20, which is partly because I (and my wallet!) needed a break this month.  Last month we had both the December sets and the Attacky Packages Series 5 sets, and another month with two sets (including Old School 10) was just too much.  Also, with some strange dirt cheap coupon sets on ebay lately, I'd have to lose a lot money just to match ebay, and I have always tried to charge less than ebay  :P   With such a steep drop though, I am a little sorry I didn't order more.  Wonkys and coupons are going to be a lot tougher to complete, and if people can't complete the January set, they might not bother trying the rest of the year........  that's what happened to me with the 2020 weekly sets.

I thought you were still considering the coupons.  I actually enjoy them, and hope to end up with a set for myself, and help a few people here with trades.  But random insertion instead of groups is probably going to mean more trades than I expected.

Mine were supposed to arrive tomorrow, and showed up today instead.  I agree, the Wonky reverse is nice!  I also really like the portrait reverse, with the Paste 'em gut=y painting Ajerx.

Out of 10 sets, I got 5 sets of portraits, 2 sets of Wonkys and two different extras, and one set of coupons (got the last card on the 10th set), with 15 different extras. 

Eggs-Lax is my favorite.

Thanks!  The concept writers, as well as the artists (I'm sure), always try to add several
holiday themed concepts each month, and hopefully many of them made the "final cut,"
we'll see tomorrow when it's released.

Let's show the people at Fanatics that Wackys are still going strong, buy an extra set or two this month,
get those sales totals up from last month!
Title: Re: 2022 All-New Monthly Wacky Packages
Post by: quas on February 08, 2022, 12:26:23 PM
I'll repeat an earlier comment, which is that the set for a holiday should not be the month of the holiday, but rather the month before.  For example, the Valentine's Day themed Wackies should have been done in the January set, since we would receive them in February, closer to Valentine's Day.  Otherwise the holiday-themed Wackies are always one month stale and out of date, a month after the holiday has passed and is long out of mind.

I couldn't figure out Darn Old bread in the February set, as it uses the banner logo of Oroweat bread, but the gag name doesn't line up.

So I asked Zen what was his inspiration for the parody concept - and it's Arnold bread.
I've never heard of that brand, so I had to dig deeper, and now I know why.

Turns out this bread goes by three different names across the country.
Arnold in the East, Oroweat in the West, and Brownberry in the midwest.
Hope that helps anyone else that may be confused by this one like I was.

I can only speak for myself. For most of 2021, I was purchasing 6 packs. I increased to 10 packs for the last few months of the year because of they way the playing cards were be distributed and I was putting  4 sets of them together.  Once 2022 started, I went back down to 6 packs.

Title: Re: 2022 All-New Monthly Wacky Packages
Post by: jleonard1967 on February 17, 2022, 01:56:21 PM
I have been doing 10 packs since October of 2021, before that it was only 3 packs and was trading and buying the rest.  Since I noticed the drop in volume I kept it at 10 packs so I can make my set.  I still want to trade, as that is really a lot of the fun, but I really do not want to buy them off of ebay as I feel the prices are just a tad high there.

I ordered 12 sets, looking to build 2 coupon sets.  After 11 sets, where the coupons were jumbled, I had no coupons 3, 8, 13, 18.  The last set yielded 3, 8, 13 and 18!  And, another forum member had those exact extra four coupons, and we were able to do a single trade because my extra jumbleds matched the 4 he was missing. 

Please Topps, go back to all in the numbered groups!!

Please Topps, go back to all in the numbered groups!!

I had ordered 7 sets this time. I had one coupon grouping that was 5,10,15,20 in a pack, but the rest were seemingly jumbled. I did end up with an extra 1,6,11,16 set but these were not together in any of the packs. Now I wish I had written them down as I opened them. My logical brain wants to suggest there was some kind of pattern since I basically ended up with extras that comprised  2 of the "traditional" groupings. From somewhat shaky memory, I seem to remember getting several consecutively numbered coupons. For example 5,6,15,16 in one pack. I guess that would be parts of two of the traditional groupings.

I work at a place where they have to "hand-pack" certain music CD and bluray disc sets where multiple inserts are required, etc. People manually need to place these items in the jewel cases before they are shrink wrapped, whereas simple releases, such as those containing one or two discs and one insert, can be automated. I would love to see how Topps does their packaging of these sets. Could be simply that someone looses count, puts too many or too few in one pack, then the sequence gets messed up for the remaining packs that person is doing. They would in essence, inadvertently, be creating new groupings. I think a peek behind their process might help explain some of the anomalies we encounter. It would also be interesting to see if there are any quality control processes on the packaging side and what they are. I am sure they monitor the quality of the cards themselves, but is there any step to check, even a manual random check, of any of the prepared packs.

Post by: Fanatical_and_Sickly on March 17, 2022, 10:46:45 AM
I too wonder how all the packing is performed.
Seems like it would be automated.
But what kind of QA is done?
I had one pack with no Wonky, then a later one with two Wonkys. It balanced in the end, but could have easily ended either +1 or -1 with them

I absolutely enjoy the holiday stuff! It is fun to celebrate in our own Wacky way. The beauty of these online sets is that it allows us to do seasonal items like that which just wouldn't work in retail sets. My vote is definitely to keep them!

Also for April 2022:
1) Does Hornets spoof a Hostess product?
2) If Hedge is a spoof of Edge Shaving Gel, will it feature a hedgehog (Sonic or not) in it?

A very accurate guess, except that using a copyrighted character that is vigorously protected is out of the question, so look for a more generic bunny!

I have just recently started collecting the monthly and weekly series. The cards now appear to be trading cards, and not stickers. Even though it’s stated as stickers on the Topps website. Is this correct? Or am I missing something? Hello everyone. I’m also new to the forum!

Hello and welcome Jacky!

I'm pretty sure the ones stated as stickers are full card stickers. They don't have the outline cutting or kiss cutting anymore. But some have also been made as cards and should be noted, such as the Bio cards from the postcard series.  Enjoy the forum, LOTS of great people here.

I had uncommonly good collation this month, too, despite starting off with 5 of 6 sets having the Krook-Aid Wonky. 

I only pulled one sketch, a Meeks, and it was in the middle of the base set:

Here are 2 other Dr. Seuss titles I want to see spoofed in future monthly Wacky Packages series:

Fox in Socks
How the Grinch Stole Christmas

We have seen these Dr. Seuss titles spoofed besides March 2022's "A.B. Sneeze": "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Dead Fish" (1991 series), "The Rat in the Cat" (1991 series), "Plop on Pop" (ANS2 Bonus sticker, originally planned for the never released 1992 series and planned for ANS1 but withdrawn), "Grenedes and Ham" (ANS8), and "The Loraxed" (2014 series - Ridiculous Reads subset).

Fox in Socks is by far my favorite Dr. Seuss book that I read to my kids and now my grandkids.  I challenge myself to read it as quickly as possible with no mistakes.  It makes you read each word individually rather than glancing and buffering.  Of course my favorite part is the Tweetle Beetles.  I you haven't read it, you can find it online here:

Actually, Plop on Pop was originally going to be in the 1991 Series also; it was removed because Topps figured there were too many of that type of parody in that series (I know, I know, stupid, right?).

According to the May 2022 wrapper: We are getting another McDonald's food spoof, this time spoofing Filet 'O Fish. But will Wacky Packages Monthly ever do spoofs on these little known fast food chains:
Culver's (I'd call it for a Wacky Packages take "Cleaver's")
Raising Canes (I'd call it for a Wacky Packages take "Raising Caves")
Sonic (The modern day drive-in/carhop restaurant chain, not the video game hedgehog - I'd call it for a Wacky Packages take "Sosic")
...I could also think a Wacky Packages take on Burger King's Chicken Fries calling it "Chimpanzee Fries". And though not fast food chains, will Wacky Packages monthly ever do spoofs on products from phramacy store chains CVS and/or Walgreens?

And it is doubtful that May 2022 Wacky Packages would feature when it starts pre orders 3 days after Mother's Day anything related to Mother's Day, and since we got passed May the 4th., no Star Wars Wacky Packages takes are allowed whatsoever!

Is this the same artist who worked on the Boboli pizza parody in the April set? I'm not expecting every artist to generate a Norman Sanders quality piece, but I hate the lack of attention to little details like the correct fonts! Boboli has a unique font for their logo, and the artist just lazily typed out the parody title in a Stencil font! So it looks like the same laziness here, with the lack of attention to little details!

Topps sent an email today to all the folks that bought some of the recent GPK Hate the 90's expansion packs. They should of been shipped out in mid-late May. Email listed out a staggered set of release dates through June, with basically everything a full month behind schedule.
Likely the May Wackys are caught up in these delays too. We just haven't gotten an email though.

I just think it's too complicated and detailed of a thing to spoof. I prefer consumer products. I personally would love to see Topps create specific focused sets just about record album and CD covers, Blu-Ray covers, book covers, posters, logos...I could go on with the potential!

(https://i.postimg.cc/MXVmGYzb/WP-Comic-02.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/MXVmGYzb)

I suggest for the rest of the 2022 year and may 2023 for the monthly Wacky sets:
* Making the portraits, Wacky Pack comics, and wonkys 3 each for the set instead of 4.
OR...
* Have the Wonkys alternate with the Wacky comics and/or portraits each month. (One gets the month off)

Speaking of the Wacky Pack comics in the style of Bazooka Joe: 1) Will there be Wacky Pack comics with 1985 and 1991 and most since 2004 ANS Wacky Packages entries? 2) If you wanted Wacky comics, why not Sunday comic strip takeoffs Wacky Package style of popular newspaper comic strips (Peanuts, Garfield, Dennis the Menace, Doonesbury, Beetle Bailey, Blondie, Hagar the Horrible, Dilbert, Family Circus, Zits, Pearls Before Swine, Dick Tracy, Baby Blues, Big Nate, Gasoline Alley, Mutts, B.C., Wizard of Id, Snuffy Smith, Hi and Lois) for a future subset? Call it "The Wacky Sunday Funnies".

yes.
the recent weekly online GPK 90's sets all got delayed by a month, so I suspect Wacky's have at least a month delay as well.
While the GPK folks got emails from Topps explaining the delay and the expected actual ship dates, Wackys did not.

There's been a shortage of sticker stock recently. It's completely wrecked havoc with the planned GPK retail sets.
The next set is "Book Worms" in July, and Topps just cancelled all Bonus boxes for that release, as they are unable to make enough cards for them after filling the retail and collector boxes.

Clearly I am ignorant of the law, but shouldn't Topps charge buyers at the time of (or shortly prior to) shipment, rather than at time of purchase, especially since the product isn't typically ready to ship until around a month later?  Better yet, shouldn't Topps wait until the product is completed and ready for shipment before even putting it up for sale in the first place?

Topps is the only place I purchase items from charging at time of purchase rather than at the time of shipping which I find to be quite puzzling especially, as you said, when items typically ship a month or more after purchase.

The day pre-orders opened for the Xbox Series X back in 2020, MS took your info but did not charge the $500+ until it shipped in November.

Huh. Then maybe they’re fulfilled alphabetically.
Always back of the queue for me in that case.
Patrick, are you British in origin? I ask that because you used "queue", whereas here, "line" is used.

BTW computer people use the word queue all the time along with stack.  A queue is FIFO, while a stack is LIFO.

Just received my April Monthly Wacky Set.   Things seem to be getting worse at Topps. Here is the email I sent Topps just now:

Hi,

  I just received my order of April Monthly Wacky Packages.  The order is missing 7 Cards. It contained 21 cards: A 20 card base set and a checklist card.
 
The order was supposed to contain 28 cards. The cards not included are listed below:


• 4 Coupons
• 2 Portraits
• 1 Wonky


I paid $65 for this set and was shorted the cards that have resale value.  The Wonky's go for $29.99.  Either refund my full purchase price or send me the
missing cards please. Also, I waited two months for this set while others got their in a timely manner. Please fix this ASAP.

Thanks,  Andrew

They should sell the October set in September.  Years from now, you would want the Halloween-themed gags to be in the October set.  However, calling it October, selling it in October, and delivering it in late November kills the concept in the present year.

Really strong set for June! I got 6 sets, perfect collation and a sketch!

Speaking of the sketches, I almost missed it as it was stuck in the middle of the base set. Normally I just grab the base set from the first box I open and then only the extras thereafter. So I went back and looked through my March sets and, sure enough, there was a sketch I missed!

deliver what is promised. I spent $65 on this set back in April. You took 3 months to send the cards and then shorted me ALL The CHASE Cards. Now you can't
seem to send the replacement for the replacement set.  Not okay.

I’ll guess that they used it all up with the GPK Bookworms release last month, which was a massive release, and are waiting for restock.

The crazy bit is that to get Bookworms out, they ended up using two different sticker stocks, regular and thin, and full sets of each side by side are radically different heights.

I know I’ve commented in the past on the ridiculosity of the shipping delays, but are there also production-related issues that delay shipments from going out in the first place, like not actually printing up the cards or having the artists do their sketch cards until the final sales figures are in?  That would at least be more understandable, like a Kickstarter business model.

I guess there would be no G-rated way to depict minds being blown, and to your point, that gray matter is already conveniently packaged for single-serving consumption.

There have been past conversation threads on the notion of some specific Wackys having a frightening or traumatizing effect on our young minds back in the day, and I weighed in on several, remembering very well of having had that feeling myself.  Thankfully I missed Hostile Thinkies until it was reissued in 1979 when I could better handle it.  If I had seen those brains in the 1974 release I think it might have scared me more than the others I mentioned.

There WON'T be a Halloween Postcard set this year. There were just too many other pots on the stove to allow time for it. A consolation prize, however, might be the bumper crop of Halloween themed Wackys in the regular October set! Keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow's release!
Off-topic for a minute, I know I said this somewhere else before, but I don't know (and can't find) where or when I did it, so I'll say it here and risk repeating myself. I've got a great idea for the next Wacky Halloween Postcards series that can be done with little to no effort whatsoever and probably both still sell well and make a profit.

Remember the 2020 series, when three Halloween Wackys from 2009 that were originally released on a black background postcard - namely Ghostess Fright Pie - A-A-Apple, Brick's Man Made Brick & Mortar Caramels and Bots - were finally released as regular white background with black border postcards (albeit with glow-in-the-dark additions)? Well, here's my idea - release the rest of the Halloween Wackys that were released on black background postcards as regular white background with black border postcards also (minus the glow-in-the-dark parts, of course)! These would be:

*Starbeast,
*Tootsie Troll,
*Hairi-Boo Ghost-Bears,
*Cracker Drac,
*Strike,
*Slayday.

These six are definitely enough to make a new series. Killing Sppprreee and Hellraiserettes wouldn't need to even be in this release, because they've already been done in 2013, the second one as an extra postcard and the first one as a bonus card. Artist cards wouldn't have to be done for almost all of them, either (the one exception being Hairi-Boo Ghost Bears, which wasn't done in 2011 (I think)), because they've already been done. It could basically be a simple, plain old ordinary set...no chase cards, nothing fancy or frilly, something like that (although maybe one or two (but no more than that) bonus cards with all-new Halloween parodies could be added into the mix just like before).

I just figured I'd throw this idea in the water and see if it floats. Thoughts, anyone?

I should've said "another "b"" instead, then.

And thanks for the fact; I had no idea that that's what it was. I was thinking the word was supposed to be "gobblin'", as in "gobbling" or eating the candy.

OK, I just took the first step and called Topps, and apparently no one else had yet reported the issue.  I strongly encourage all of you to each individually call Topps customer service at 800-489-9149 and report the sketch card issue, so that they know for certain that this isn't just one or two people.  For all of our collective good, it will be worth the time you have to be on hold before you reach the live person. The guy I spoke with was very friendly and said he would look into it (but he did not take my number and say he would get back to me).  Call now!!

I did the same. Was also told it was the first they were hearing of it. Said it would be looked into and that I would receive  an email response in 2 business days. We shall see…
BTW wait time on hold < 1 minute.

Just got my order and opened 12 boxes (enough to complete a coupon and Wonkys set) and stopped opening.  Of course no sketch cards. Called Topps again and they said they were investigating.  This time they took my email address and said it would be a couple of days.

Here's the response from Topps that I received via email when I asked for clarity on "random".  Of course, my question was not answered.


Response By Email (Jake) (10/21/2022 03:22 PM)
Hello Jeff,
 
As per the product description, sketch cards are randomly inserted. Obviously, the more you purchased, the better chances you have of receiving sketch card(s) but nothing is guaranteed. As alluded to prior, in the coming days the bonus orders for the sketch cards will start to process if you will be receiving them. Thank you again.

Best regards,
Jake

Thanks Jake. Help me understand "random". So are the odds the same for someone that bought 1 set vs someone that bought 20 sets?

I think by saying " the more you purchased, the better chances you have of receiving sketch card(s) but nothing is guaranteed", they at least made an attempt.  They probably kept it deliberately vague beyond that.  So if you bought 20 you have a (hopefully much) better chance than if you bought one. 

Oh well, we can resume communicating with them on Monday if we think that will be helpful!

Maybe you could send them a check for your order and tell them that "Valid checks pertaining to real bank accounts are randomly inserted in these envalopes.  The more sketch cards you send me for them, the better chance you have to get money for the orders."

Odds have never been given for the monthly sets.
But they’ve mostly seemed to be around 1:10 based on comments

Have to wait and see on who gets the lucky emails and if Topps is basing on the number purchased or not

I agree. I up my normal monthly order from 6 packs to 10 when it’s time for sketches. I know that doesn’t guarantee I will get one, but it almost feels like we were baited in an attempt to sell more product. This is not a trivial grievance but borders on fraud. And when there is not a quick and clear resolution communicated to paying customers when an error has been discovered, it’s just incompetence.

According to some sources, the songwriter David Paton said during an interview that he had a habit of staying up late at night writing and playing music, and he wouldn't wake up until late. One day he had to go some place early and he asked his wife to wake him early. She said "You've never seen a daybreak. If you ever get up early it would be magic."

Ho, ho, ho

The NYCC set had an absurd shipping estimate of “Ships in 28-35 business days after clock expires” vs the other sets which had “ Ships in 14-21 business days after clock expires”
So who knows, maybe by end of year? 🤪

In 1974, there was only one band in existence as far as I was concerned....the Beatles!!
Hmmm...The Beatles broke up in 1970, I do believe.  :)

If I had any information regarding shipping information, I'd be happy to share it with you, but unfortunately, none of the artists or writers involved with these sets have knowledge of the printers schedule(s).

Thanks, you guys! The shipping department is it's own mysterious entity there. Did they fix the missing sketches? I haven't been following the news here.

Just received a full refund from Topps on my April Monthly set. They shorted me everything except the Base Set.  Nice to see they finally did the right thing.

I received 2 sketches today and thought I'd share them since they're exceptional, I think.  The one on the left was done by Neil Camera; the one on the right was done by Floydman.  Floydman did a great job on the shading, while Camera's detail is awesome.  These "sketches" really are one-of-a-kind works of art, and not just sketches.  You can tell these artists have been spending more time on these than what it usually takes to just sketch.  And before y'all start PM'ing me about how much I want for them, I think I'm keeping these.

The way I see it, Wackys are a perfect way to celebrate the insanity of it all! Politics as well as life in general. With MAD gone now, who is left to wave the flag of mocking normalcy besides us???

Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, Seth Myers, "Tooning Out the News", etc. Albeit, heavy on the politics, but they all delve into other current topics as well.

I wonder what these November 2022 Wacky Packages entries will spoof:
The Don
Calico Fritters
Get-Stuffed
Explosive Boxers

And I noticed in the previews Kong's Hawaiian features a line originally from original Wacky Packages Sticker Series 5 entry "Graft Cheese".

Maybe...
Get-Stuffed (Jet-Puffed marshmallows)
Calico Fritters (Calico Critters dolls)

The other 2 are on their own.

Also The Don could also be a parody of the book "The Dot":

They haven’t shipped yet.
Probably not until after the Attacky Packages #6 set ships, which was on sale a couple weeks prior to the October sets.

Got my October Wackys Monday! Surprised to see 2 Cthulhu related designs in there. I didn't realize that Victorian Horror was so popular. Do any of the designs stand out to you all? Any favorites?

Pete I believe the two you referenced are by guest artist Shane Garvey.  I think those two are wild, not traditional but beautifully rendered with complex but compelling designs.  I imagine they may not be for everyone but I am a fan!

From what I've seen on set images, I'm diggin' the All detergent and Swiss Miss parodies. The artwork on those two really stand out this month.

Steve, yup those are Shanes!  He’s done a bunch of sketch sets under the name Kid Grimm but those are his first two Wackys and I agree cool stuff and of course “ Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl”
