Of the different variations : Standard Refractor, Prism Refractor, X-Fractor, Gold Refractor, and Superfractor

I've not seen a Chrome prism refractor before...              (reminds me of being on shrooms)

Certain Wacky Pack titles could really benefit from that treatment. Crazy scenes and great humor shaken up to the extreme.

Promo Sheet ....Soon....Hopefully.... Probably.....Possibly   :^)
so the info on the July GPK Chrome S2 release is now out, but there's  still nothing on the June Wacky Chromes.

not sure if that's a good sign or bad

Topps lists one of the Target Audiences of GPK 2 Chrome as "Chromies"

I wonder who classifies themselves as a Chromie.   I guess that would mean you collect ALL Topps Chrome releases? Sounds like wishful thinking to me by Topps marketers.  :]

I can envision asking a dealer at the Philly show if he has any WP Chrome cards and hearing this reply: "I had some but two Chromies just stopped by and cleaned me out."

Then I can see myself mentioning to another WP fan at the show. This place is crawling with Chromies!  The Chromies are coming.   At least Topps thinks so.

I wonder who on this board will turn out to be a Chromie?   Time will tell.  I may turn out to be Chromie Junior; but Never a full fledged Chromie. Not this guy.  8)

See picture in below link for one example of a GPK Chrome preorder.

http://instagram.com/p/dfeLqQwPPK/


The instagram poster in that link - Buffmonster - is a pretty well known street artist who happens to love GPK.  He owns a lot of original GPK artwork and produced a series of stickers based on his art as an homage to GPK.  He has a second series of the stickers coming out and has a Kickstarter campaign set up to raise funding.  There are some pretty good rewards for the backers.  Check out this link:

I've got quite a bit pre-ordered.  I think this set will be big
and have a lot of great surprises for all of us!   

The subsets look very intriguing.  I just don't care for all the
border/background variations, it's almost too much.  One or two,
fine...but do we need 5 or so?

I haven't pre-ordered any. Not sure what to do. I may break down soon and order a case. Yes, the subsets could be cool but the whole flashback series burned me out.
I wonder how many collectors will be going for all the border variants. I still feel this series will be swill.

What are "Cutting Room Floor" and "Where are They Now"?

Do we know if the Lost Wackys will be rehashes of ones we've already seen?  And if not, are they from the OS era?

some believe the Cutting Room Floor and Lost Wackys will be cards for the Series 17 Binder images. Which would mean taken from OS era sketches/roughs, but done in all new paintings.

From the Chrome Marketing plan:

Cutting Room Floor: Unused concepts from the 70's series that have been completed and printed for the first time.

Where are they now? : Vintage Wacky products are updated to reflect their current packaging designs.

Lost Wackys: Wackys that didn't make it into their original set series get printed on chrome.

Anyone find any other info on the Blaster Boxes? I only found them at BBtoystore and they only state that each box of 7 regular 4 card packs has one extra exclusive pack of 4 bonus cards.  "Bonus cards" have usually been new titles in the wacky releases. If its new titles and there are more than four I would order multiple Blasters. If its a border/ refractor deal I will stick with one box. Strange that only the one dealer is preselling them.

I'm very curious about that part of the series as well.  It's one of the reasons I've held off on ordering.  I'd like to know how many of these bonus cards there are and what the subset consists of.  I suppose I'll continue to hold off pre-ordering until I get more info, but I would like to pick up a little something at pre-order prices.

Maybe you can shed some light on what the "Bonus Cards" will be ??  That will help determine if I pre-buy more Blaster Boxes...or not.

Below is the reply I just received from Topps when I messaged them via Facebook asking what the "Bonus Cards" in the Blaster Boxes will be:


"The bonus cards in the Value Boxes will be a special refractor parallel of the base cards."


So there you have it. The Blaster boxes will have another type of refractor. This is how it went with GPK also I believe.

I have one Blaster box on order which comes with one pack of 4 Bonus cards which will suffice for me.

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.
