Anyone happen to know if there will be a binder for this release?  Has GPK tended to have one for its chrome series?  I hope there is as, despite the expense, I think it looks so nice on the shelf.

Thanks for the info.  So my question is how many different refractor parallels will there be?  If there are only a handful, I'll likely pursue the subset.  If there are, say more than ten or twelve, I'll probably just pick up a few titles I like and/or one blaster box.

I think each refractor set will consist of the 110 base cards.

Wow, if that's the case, I may even bother getting a single blaster box.  I'd never get the 110 card set and, being the completist I am, I won't even try.  I'll just pick up a few individual cards I like.

There's boxes on eBay for $70, is that how much they're expected to cost?

Nice to see these on Ebay with Pre-sells. It makes the imminent release of WPChrome seem more imminent to me.

Has anyone pre-ordered regular retail boxes? I have 7 Collector/ Hobby boxes and one Blaster Box on pre-order. I didn't see any reason to buy
any Retail boxes. Is there any content in those that is not in the Collector boxes? I know the last two ANS releases had Magnets and a border color that were exclusive to retail boxes.

You are correct. I didn't make the Kool-Offs and Snatch A Pack connection. I stand behind you in line.

Does anyone think Brad should set up a Superfractor Registry on this site? A thread where all the cards and who got the superfractor are listed for WP Chrome? I think that would be pretty cool. When you pull a superfractor card or buy it you can claim it in the registry also.

Snatch a Pack is a great title but I'm not sure why.  The art (on the original) seems rushed and the gags are fairly ho-hum.  Maybe it's just that we all loved the actual Snack*Pak mini cereal boxes as kids.  Or maybe it's that Wacky cereal gags are some of the greatest and here we have 3 in 1!  That said, those are great sketches!

I always loved this wacky a lot and I think it's the three wackys in one concept. Mind blowing!

Three Wackys in one, I think you nailed it!  There's got to be a way to use that in a current gag.

I have to remember to hit Target stores every day that week to score the blister packs and bonus boxes...whatever they call them now. When GPK Chrome was released, those vanished immediately, but not the regular packs. I will probably acquire a mini-master set on the bay and maybe go for a full house on the refractor variants on 1 title....with the exception of the 1 of 1 super-refractor. Too rich for my blood.

Oh no! No retail for these? I thought for sure since Target got in the GPK boxes and packs. Oh well..there's always the Topps store.

I doubt the regular packs won't be at Target. Where did you get that insight?

I would appreciate some clarification for the upcoming Chrome Release:

1.  Is there going to be a separate Hobby and Collectors Release

2.  If Question #1 is a Yes, what are the differences.

Thanks!

There are Retail and Hobby only packs. Hobby packs have Gold (25 per base card) and Blue Border(50 per base card) Refractors.
Retails also has Blaster Boxes which have seven packs plus one pack of 4 Unique Border Refractors that only come in Blaster Boxes.
There is nothing in the retail boxes that is not in the Hobby boxes.
