Maybe Neil could redo all the sketches he has done for this release with small changes and Topps can sell a set of those? Then was everyone who purchased one of the first sketches still has something unique...and we get our set.

No changes - they are great the way they are!  I own the "Ran-A-Way" sketch, and don't mind that cards were made from it.

Thanks Pat! Just one note, most of the art was drawn on standard size sketch cards and if these were ever to became a set, I'd probably want to paint them at least 5x7 so that details (like the text) were crisper. Otherwise, those little net weight gags look kind of sloppy in print ;)

I would absolutely buy this set.

Me too!  And the set wouldn't even need to have a "superfractor" chase card!   ;)

I would definitely buy a set!  I've really enjoyed these, being a fan of Wacky Packs and sci-fi.

The set would be a no-brainer!  But we already know Topps has no brains.

Just thought of a few more ideas for Attacky Packages. All I need is a few more cards :(

Neil,

     Is there any possibility of you making a small number of sets of cards made from your scans of these sketches for forum members? Since we are talking about sketches and not actual cards; I thought maybe the rules might be a tad more lax. I bet alot of us would be up for acquiring a set of these sketches as cards.
You could sell a set of the cards along with one original sketch. You could limit it to forum members and have us pre-pay to fund the endeavor.  Thanks for all you do!

Wish I could but unfortunately, without explicit permission from Topps, printing them is out of the question. To make a set, each one would need to be an original piece of painted art and I'd probably need years to pull that off!

However, if enough people were to let Topps know, maybe they'd consider letting me print a set. Dunno.

Neil,

 What about posting a digital library of the Sketches you have done for this set so we could print out our own copies.
I would do that.
