My recollection is that they aren't keeping track of who purchased prior so they get first "dibbs".  They we're discussing a subscription service kind of thing but I thought the word that came back was that they weren't going to do that.

I guess we'll have to provide receipts or order numbers in order to qualify for a free binder #17 when the time comes.

I am pretty sure they have record of who makes all 4 release purchases but it's not a bad idea to keep your receipts where you can find them easily. 

I was referring to the initial discussion about people wanting a guarantee that they could get all 4 releases with a subscription type service, and they decided not to do that.

Now that we are halfway through the binder sales it would be nice to hear a little more about Lost 17th Series Binder and what might be created to fill it?

Maybe Neil can shed some light on this. I am purchasing two of each binder so hope to acquire 2 of the 17th binders. Can we hear who is doing the art for the the last binder?

The puzzles give info about each of the 16th series. What will the puzzles contain for the 17th? Will they even include puzzles/ sketches with the 17th binder?

Hi Andrew,

I'd rather be surprised. I really have no desire to have anything about the 17th binder spoiled anytime soon.

knowing/not knowing won't change my purchase habits, but it would take all the thrill out of opening the package in several months.

I can't see a Lost 17th Binder made without them also making a set to go with it. The set will probably be sold on the site with the binder only being available to those who purchased the full set of 16. Why make a binder and not produce anything to go in it?

yeah, I pulled that from what was posted on the Wacky Packages Facebook page.

why all of us that have ordered the previous sets haven't gotten the promised early 'heads-up' is anyones guess.

It is odd, especially since we've been led to believe that buying the first 4 sets is required to get the 17th binder.  At least with these (so far, anyway) we don't seem to have to worry about them selling out in an hour while we're at work, unable to order.......

Does anyone know if the 17th binder is given free to those who purchased the 1st 4 sets & NOT available for sale otherwise, or would otherwise be available for sale for those that don't get it free. I'm figuring getting these binders on ebay is cheaper than from topps, so is that 17th binder worth the premium of buying the binders new from topps, and not just buying from ebay & purchase the 17th binder from ebay or topps.

My guess would be Topps will charge us for the 17th Series Binder so if you've been buying the sets all a long at $260.00 , the final set will be $320.00. They got us reeled in. Also why is this all HUSH HUSH !!!

I highly doubt we will pay anything for the 17th Binder if we purchased all of the other ones  and I don't expect it to be sold separately. Anything can happen but it sounded like the 17th binder was basically a promo item made to help ensure robust binder sales.

Not that I have any vested interest in this whatsoever, but, unless Topps has changed their mind along the line, the 17th binder is free to those who purchase 1-16. Look at the original ad, bottom right:

I took it differently, based upon this quote of yours: "I highly doubt we will pay anything for the 17th Binder if we purchased all of the other ones"...

This came across to me as if you weren't sure that the 17th was free with purchase of 1-16. Sorry if I can't interpret your thoughts vs. your actual words.

I will now stay out of this topic.

I think the best information we have thus far came from slimjim on the ANS11 Spoilers thread...
