2016 HALLOWEEN PACK O' FUN ORDERS HAVE SHIPPED!
« on: October 21, 2016, 11:58:16 AM »
Greetings all!

Just writing to let everyone know that the Halloween Pack O' Fun orders have shipped! I don't want to give away any surprises yet, but I do need to mention one thing to keep your eyes on:

For this year's release, I wanted to up the "fun quotient", so I had a super rare card printed for the Halloween Pack o' Fun! There's only 5 of these cards made and 3 are randomly inserted in packs (I am planning to auction off the other two right before Halloween - more details to come).

For the 3 lucky people that find these cards in packs, you will each receive one original piece of concept art used in the creation of the Halloween Pack O' Fun cards! Simply send me a PM with a scan of your card and set #, and I will send you your artwork (please respond no later than December 31, 2016).

SPOILER ALERT! For those that just have to know, the title of the card is "Slithers" and you'll see that the regular version has a red snake on the side of the package. The rare version is missing the snake. For reference, here's a pic of what a portion of each card looks like:



In addition to the rare card, there are also a number of other surprises, including a special prism card and bonus sketch cards. I'll post more in the next few days, but in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled on your mailboxes!

-Neil

awesome news, Neil!  Funny, I've been really getting into the Halloween spirit this year. 

Just all the goofy, fun stuff.  Got my costume ready for that night, too.  Won't go out, but I'll have it on to greet all the kids that night, then all the drunk college kids that come out about an hour later!

Words can't express what an amazing and giving person you are. This is beyond cool and Topps should be ashamed of letting us down on Halloween again. We need more people like you

Glad to hear they're starting to arrive! And thanks for the kind words everyone! Seems like a good way to keep the Halloween thing alive!

Speaking of which, I've been considering expanding these into a full fledged set for next year's release. That would mean at least 30 cards (maybe more) and possibly a boxed edition. I'd love to hear what everyone thinks of the idea.

Neil,

Now that the sets are arriving maybe you can expound on the total # of different titles.
A master list, so to speak.

Mine arrived today - they're fantastic!  I don't want to be a spoiler so I won't mention any specific titles, but I ended up with 7 different cards and a prism!!

Another wonderful Wacky Halloween - thanks again Neil!!!

The surface of the card has a special coating that gives it a prismatic effect. I'll post some pics once more people have received their packs.

I can only speak for the one I got, which is numbered P1.  It is one of the titles I also received as a regular card, but with a little rainbowish prism overlay, kind of like the chrome atomic refractor pattern.  I seriously doubt that it will show up in a scan.

I hope sooner than that! I know the storm disrupted things quite a bit, but hopefully, you get them before Halloween.
