*finally* found some packs and bonus boxes at one of 5 Target's I drove to in the area.
What's the deal with the poor distribution of this series?
Still no gravity feeds or value packs either. Maybe they don't exist this time around?

I asked Clint at GP Wacky Warehouse about Gravity feeds and he said that they were cancelled. Maybe not enough orders? Not a good sign for future wacky series???

You know, if I didn't know better, I'd swear that Topps was deliberately trying to get rid of Wackys once and for all. There seems to be no other explanation for them doing what they're doing.

Funny, I've visited 4 of my nearby Targets and only found them in 1.

Received my Collector's box. 2 of them actually. One had a TRANSFATTIES patch card (Silver) and the other had another TRANSFATTIES patch card (blue) and a Pat Chaimuang shaped sketch card (popcorn bag).

Happy to see my MAD MUTT featured on the box!

The Box Toppers are pretty nice!

I have to concur with the idea put out by mikecho - does Topps even care about Wackys anymore?

Not only has there been a lack of product in stores, but there has not been a single mention in any of the daily emails Topps sends out to their mailing list.

Can someone on these boards in the know comment on this?  With this lack of attention, is another set even possible?

I'm hoping it's just a hang up in distribution. As I mentioned earlier in the thread my local targets seem to get stocked weeks after the street date. It happened with the last few GPK sets as well.

THIS^^^^

I noticed this, too. I can't believe they haven't included it in any their daily emails. WEIRD

they did mention them once, back on March 14th. The same day that they prominently announced the new baseball "living set" with a gigantic pic of Aaron Judge, their current money maker.
Wackys got buried way down in the email.

I didn't see that Fanatical_and_Sickly but I do find it interesting that they only referenced the Collector Edition box.

I just went to the website and that is the only item for sale as well - no Hobby Box, no Bonus Box.

I think we can all agree that Topps did not put their "A" effort in marketing this release.

Stopped by local Target tonight and still........... NOTHING!!!!

I am biting my tongue for the moment regarding my opinion on the latest release, especially the sketch card distribution and quality of cards in the Collector's Boxes........  Get back to basics folks!

Hoping to bend JZ's ear next weekend

getting the shaft at a nearby Target.

2 gravity feeds for GPK, the newest one and the one from last fall. Looking rather full. But not a single Wacky Pack in stock.

With the poor rollout of this set and the lack any any compelling extras in the set; my sense is the next release should be called:

Wacky Packages Go To Hell

That should sell pretty well.

Decided to shoot for a full house on Smellboy after I pulled a red patch in packs.
At this point, 5 border colors (black, silver, blue, yellow, bronze), autograph, 3 border color patches (blue, silver, red), sepia and 3 backs - black lud, red lud and pure white Original Series blank.

Cool! First Full House I've seen of my cards so far! I did one Smellboy sketch card for this set. My scans show it's unsigned, but I'm hoping I caught that before mailing them back to Topps.  :o

Just pulled a Gold from a bonus box. My one and only. And one used for the box art too.
Kind of exciting.
Would have been cool if I pulled a Smellboy....

There was about 20 backs in this one, but i dont need anymore base cards so i bought one pack and took the box. The cashier thought I was crazy .  Thought it was weird that I wanted the box.

I have learned that those boxes take up a lot of space, and are difficult to ship if you decide you don't want them anymore.
