Neil, super fun and very cool.  Thanks for the heads up!  Also I believe there is a Joe Simko Mars/GPK promo for the GPK fans out there.

Not sure about the specifics Daryl, but I'm sure they explain it all on the kickstarter website.

From what I understood from checking out the site, the physical items are anything except the $10 "Watching from Mars Digital Rewards."  It also sounds like anyone who's contributing gets whatever new stretch bonuses come out, regardless of when they pledged.  Hope I've got this right!

I think this promo helped this project out quite a bit today. Almost at $105K. Nice way to boost their sales and awareness of the project.
I was hoping to score a Neil Mashup Sketch ; but knew that was a long shot. Now I have an actual Wacky/ MA card locked down. VERY COOL!

Just bumping the thread, as after re-reading Neil's post, it seems that this particular bonus might only be for pledges made before 5/25.

Just got an email from Topps.  Today is the last day for pledges to include the Wacky promo.  So, if you're on the fence, now is the time to act!

They are past $122 K now ; so hopefully the Wacky promo ending helped pull in some more pledges. Very cool to have the wacky card included. Neil's mashup sketches are the best....but pulling one will be a long shot. This makes that situation much better.

378 backers as of this morning, so there should be about that many Wacky promo stickers created.  I'd have added more stuff if it would have gotten me extras of that sticker, but it apparently doesn't work that way.

I would guess that certain OLD's have opened multiple pledge accounts on KS and purchased the minimum physical item pledge in order to score multiples of this and the GPK promo's.

I tried to order extras, but the system wouldn't let me.  Maybe it was because I didn't understand Kickstarter "accounts."  Bummer.

I would think you would need multiple email addresses to set up multiple accounts. Not sure; but where there is a will.....

I would not be surprised if some of the bigger OLD's ended up with more than one of the promo wackies for re-sale.

So they just added 8 of Wacky and 8 of the GPK Mashup cards to each 8 box case Retailers order for the MA KS. That should be good news for some retailers

and should help drive last minute retailer pledges.  I bet this project cracks $150k soon.

Andrew, that's good, hopefully that will make the easier to get on the secondary market!

The promo card is listed a combo... does that mean this is a new (and different) card that has WP promo on one side and the GPK on the other? 

Or does the $5 get you a set of both cards?

I'm taking it to mean both cards for the $5.  Very glad they did this!  With it being Memorial Day, I think a lot of Wacky collectors might have missed out on Attacky Packages for the last weekend deadline.

Guys,

My current hobby budgets (focused on candy, pretty much) don't really allow for me to buy into a Mars Attacks set.  However, I'd love to get a set of these promo cards.  Anyone willing to proxy purchase a set of the promos for me?  Let me know. 

Thanks! - Jason

You've got it Jason!  I'm ordering some extras for people who missed out last weekend.

okay, so I guess there is not actually a selection to make to add this? you just add money to your pledge amount, then Topps will ask you later what you want?
this seems a bit haphazard.

Yep, confused me too.  Thanks again to Monsterettes for setting me straight! 

Haphazard it may be, but I like the idea of being able to select what chase levels and extras I want.  However, if they ever do this for Wackys, I want the ability to buy extra base sets as an add-on without having to pay $80 for a box.

Forgive my confusion, but I'm not understanding all these options.  Maybe I just need to read this thread over, but what item(s) exactly can people get and for what amount?  I'm not all that interested in Mars Attacks, but I love the various Wacky mashups and wish I could get a set of just those cards, but that doesn't sound like an option.  If I could get just one mashup, I would.  But is that possible?  Can I get one without having to pledge to Mars Attacks?  If so, which mashup card could I get?

yeah, it's nice being able to pick and choose some of the stuff.
no extra base sets is odd. I guess you could pledge again under a different address at the $40 level? but that would only get you one extra set at a time.

Neil has been posting many awesome mash-ups in a different thread, but all except the one at the top of this thread are unique sketch cards that will be randomly inserted into Mars Attacks packs.  The one at the top of this thread you could "order" today by pledging $25.  Or, those who are already pledging are now able to add the one at the top as an extra add-on to pledges.  Not sure if it will be a sticker or a card, but it's cool!

I'd love to see a future Wacky release include a subset of all of Neil's Wacky/MA mash-ups, but I'm not holding my breath.

I was thinking the same thing.  I was never impressed with what I saw in regard to the aborted Star Wars Wacky Packages mash-up set, but Neil's Wacky/Mars Attacks?  That's a set I'd get behind!  Great, fun stuff to just seems to blend so together so much more organically.

I *think* you have the option to get the wackys simply by adding to your pledge amount. I'm sure enough to put my money on it anyway.

For those of you who didn't get in before the cutoff to get a free wacky mashup.  There is now an add on for 5 dollars that gives you both the wacky  and GPK promo card. They are just short of 160k, so there is a lot of add one that are going to be distributed

The $160,000 stretch goal is a big addition - 3 more Dinosaurs Attack Letter-Press cards!  Can't see how they won't hit that today, as they're at $159,786 already.  That stretch goal may prompt people to go up to the level that includes all letter-press cards.

I agree I did get a level that includes all the letter presses.  I am very happy with all the upgrades that are coming. I laugh though, we are so close to using dinosaur fossils in the ink.  Is it just me or does that really mean anything to anyone?
