Visited 2 more Targets today and still nothing.

I must say that I am surprised that they are available at Topps.com.  In the past, it seems that they are always a little late with their own product.  Nice to see that they are improving.

I'm not surprised by this at all. Around me I don't see retail until the 2nd week after release. And items like Bonus packs not until the 3rd week.

Went to 2 Targets this morning.  Nothing out yet.











Nothing as of yesterday at my local nearby Target either.

Mine by 11:00 am were already checked over and picked thru.  That still aggravates me.

Found them at Target this morning. I allowed myself 48 packs which was, coincidentally, the amount in the unmolested gravity feed. Based on the odds I did well. Pulled were two of those pencil things, a complete set of the tats, sixteen silvers, a gold Chimperial and a very eye pleasing Glutton Mustard by Smokin Joe. Like Ice Cube said, it was a good day.

I wanted to see if a local comic shop had some 2015 series Wacky Packages in after work, but the comic shop was closed. Looks like if I set foot in a Meijer or Target or Walmart soon I may buy some.

And since I saw the stickers at ebay:
1) What does Meme spoof?
2) Is that a Garbage Pail Kid character in the Yu-Ki-Oh Wacky Package?

It looks like the subsets of Batty Baseball and Coming Soon and Fads ended up in the 110 base set rather than on their own.

And I can guess that there's no bonus stickers for Wacky Packages 2015 even for Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, and Meijer. And I have yet to see a 110 base sent entry checklist.

Do the backs of the 110 2015 stickers include puzzle pieces, coupon parodies, and billboard ad parodies? If so, what are they?

Daryl, Meme is a spoof of Mip the self balancing robot.  It was one of the hot toys last Christmas.  Here are the reference images I used for both Explo and Meme.

Yeah, this is interesting. Spent 20 minutes last night trying to figure out if I was going crazy.

found jumbo packs at my nearby Target. there was a sealed box up front, and I guessing it was the excel case with a nice unmolested gravity feed inside. I may have to go back with a boxcutter.

the 2 bonus purple border cards are a crock. they are almost indistinguishable from a black border.

I love the Gronk reference since I'm a huge Pats fan.

Brad that's too cool!  I was so close to showing Meme Gronking on the side of the box but Horsemaning won out.  I also included a very small cameo by Totarillo as the baby being Owled on.

They've made it to Northern California Targets! At least in suburbia. The bonus packs were all rifled through already but I bought a few paks anyway. The gravity feeds held their cards alot tighter so they looked unmolested. I opened one on the ride back and pulled a green ludlow back!!! Woo hoo! Opened a second and pulled a silver~ rest will go through after the basketball game....Alex

I cannot believe that they used the Ajinx parody again.  Ajinx was used in series 6.  That is the cardinal rule not to repeat the parody.  Also they used Mayday, which was parodied in Series 3 of Silly Supermarket.   This comes on the heals of using Hot Whales which was a package parody back in 2009.  Topps need to step up their game.  Still like the series, but let's work a little harder.   Just saying....

 How one would notice the green ludlow back is beyond me as I could only see the bottom front edge of the cards.

Did Silly Supermarket once spoof a Wacky Packages wrapper for 1 series?

Just checked into a Meijer store today on June 5, 2015, no Wacky Packages 2015 series, just several Wacky Packages 2014 series mega packs still on display in the COLLECTOR CARDS section of the toy department.

The packs in the gravity feed are stacked very tightly and if you open the top and pull them out in one complete stack, the tops of the packs where they'd hang (or is it the bottom) keep bending upwards and forms what looks like an L. That makes it somewhat easy to tell if someone fingered them to death.

Found another Gravity Feed hiding in an Excel box at a Target today. "Found" two of the three Tatoo's I needed to complete my set. Purchased the third one on the bay just now. I spent less this time around than in the past. Two Collector boxes and 24 retail packs and 1 Tatoo off the bay. I think I spent about $250 total.
I am happy with the 1 sketch I pulled, 1 Wardrobe card, 1 Patch Relic Card, 1 Wood card, 2 Golds, 2 Wacky Backs , 1 Auto, 3 Pencil Drawings and 2 Black Luds.
No need this time around for Printing Plates, Red or Green Ludlows or Purple Borders. The lack of bonus cards saved me some coin.

Great stuff, Joe!  I'm gonna have to get me some Explo markers and start planking, although I may be a bit too top-heavy for that  :P

Paul, thanks but if you remember correctly you were the one who originally hunted down Expo markers for me when I couldn't find any good packaging reference.  Also congrats on some great WP 2015 gags and it's so cool that your gags Wiggly Packages and Long John's Liver finally saw light of day!

Checked the Target that's on the way home from work, and not a Wacky to be found.  Not even any empty spots.
