Changes at Topps Entertainment
« on: July 30, 2018, 05:45:03 PM »
It's been a few days, so I thought it worth mentioning that Colin Walton has stepped down as Entertainment Brand Manager at Topps last Friday (7/27). How this will effect Wacky Packages (retail or digital) is anyone's guess, but in the interim, they've got current projects in good hands with his former assistant manager.

Needless to say, the rest of 2018 should be pretty interesting! But as they say, "The Show Must Go On"!

Interesting.  I certainly have no idea of the inner workings of Topps.  However, if Topps does things differently in the future than they have in the last few years, I think it would be an upgrade.  It feels to me like Wackys have declined and I'm hoping some fresh blood will shake things up.

I had a long talk with her today and made a ton of suggestions. Hopefully things go forward for the better. She seemed cool and receptive.

Thanks, Dave!  I have great confidence that if she listens to you that you'll bring back some of the magic that seems largely missing the past few years.

Boring.

Only my opinion . :-X

Dave thank you for speaking up for the Wacky community.

That's promising. Let's hope things get better in the WP world.
