I'm still wondering why they are putting different color foil stamps on boxes - aren't the contents the same?  Apparently I missed something.

Lumber cards I thought were MLB Wackys.  Did you mean letterpress?

Yes, letterpress. Not lumber.

Yes, the hobby box contents would be the same - A

it's just a way to make the bigger spenders feel more special through manufactured tiered rarities

Pat, too cool!  Neil should take scans of all the Attacky Packages not included in the official release set and make a companion set for the forum.

Neil, another great MA-Wacky crossover! 

I agree with Joe, let's get these "extra" ones out there to the world!

Well, at least to us  8)

Wow!

It's an awesome little miracle that we're actually getting an Attacky Packages bonus set out of the Mars Attacks Kickstarter, but the more I see Neil's other sketches - I'm convinced there could be a much larger dedicated Wacky/Attack crossover set.

Hot Wheels and Wackies are my thing and MA is a recent fascination for me as it originally came out before I collected cards. That sketch is the BEST. Thanks so much for posting the pic.

Very exciting time in the MA camp as the impending arrival of the Kickstarter bundles looms. They are set to announce another surprise for campaign supporters any day. The KS campaign has been like a trip inside the chocolate factory. We have watched the set go from idea to reality and have been asked for input and ideas along the way. Hopefully the multiple requests for WP OS6 on KS were heard. You can't say we didn't try on that front.

Well, the newest update came out and there's a delay that's going to push back shipping a couple of weeks; due to a last-minute art change on the wrappers and the company printing them not printing enough, along with some signed cards not coming in. 

The amazing news is that they've created more Attacky Packages cards! 



Also, it sounds like these are truly just a bonus and not an addition to the existing Attacky Packages set.  Based on the wording in the update, a single set of these will be included to each backer who had a physical reward.   "Now the good news:   We have added 3 new bonus cards which will be sent out to all backers with physical rewards!"

Even though the "kickstart" reward program is over, how can we get these 3 additional cards on top of the Attacky Packages set we ordered? Can I make a post-donation? LOL!

    Kind of hard to fathom how much Wackiness has been included in this release.
Many thanks to Topps for their generosity. Looking forward to  "MAO Opening Day"

Thank Adam Levine. He's overseeing the MAO release and was instrumental in moving this set forward.

Yeah, what are we getting now? A dozen new "Wacky" cards?   That's one third of a 70's-style series! 

It's a serious bonus they're delivering on this.

Hey, that's my Ran-A-Way sketch card!!!  Cool!

It sounds like one bonus set of these three cards will be sent to each backer receiving a physical reward.  If that is in fact the case, I won't be able to include them for the people here I'm helping.

With 525 backers, 18 of which are digital only, that leaves 507 bonus "Attacky Packages Old School" sets of three cards.

Can we still be post-backers?  ;D Actually, as long as someone posts nice scans of them, that's OK.
