Get'em at 19.99 while you can. Page lists 24.99, but drop down and checkout are 19.99

And what is up with the drop down menu saying " 7 card set". Clearly 10 cards.

That's why it pays to hang out on the forum all day - in order to pounce fast on deals like that.

Finally!  A set that is all Wackys, and not $5 per Wacky!

so I'm looking at my order closer, and even though the website said $19.99, it was still $24.99 in the invoice.

but - 5 sets bundles really did purchase through at just +$30.00. So I got a 5 set bundle for $55 or just $11 a set!
That's Buyer's Club territory! Wish I'd seen that earlier. I'll see if there's interest in the Buyer's Club thread.
Or even if someone was thinking of buying 2 sets, they should buy the 5 sets for just a few dollars more.

I tried the 5 set option as well, and will have a bunch of extra sets for those who miss out on the 1 week window.  But, mine (unfortunately) include sales tax. 

I guess I should have waited to discuss it here, but I was afraid they'd change the 5 set price before I could get my order in.  Besides, hopefully, the more we order, the better it is for future Wacky releases.

I'm afraid that they'll still change it after the fact. Just have to wait and see. But pretty sure they'll have to honor it if they change it later on to something greater.

If they try to change it after the fact, I'll cancel my order for the extras.

They don't seem to work on weekends, so they might have a big problem come Monday morning.  Perhaps a large number of orders at the lower price will show them that they could sell more cards if they don't mix Wackys with GPKs, and don't charge so much per card.  I doubt it, but I am Wacky enough to hope   :P

Patrick, you should put these in the Spreadsheet with the other Attacky Packages that are already there!

I'll plan to. I've been away for a week of work travel and haven't started into the Spreadsheet maintenance yet. Don't want to attempt that on a smart phone.  ;D

Glad you like it!

On a related note, it's great to see so many people picking up sets. I try to avoid shameless plugs, but the bottom line is this: Every set that sells, improves our chances of getting more releases like this. So, if you like 'em, please buy a set or at least, share the link - ACK, ACK! (that's martian for "THANKS")!

Hopefully Topps will realize that we are happy about this set because the art rocks, and we aren't being forced to buy GPK cards.  I passed on several really cool Wacky cards after I decided to no longer buy mixed sets.

Look what just landed!

Any particular reason for the change in the tagline for Bot Wheels from "Self-Destructive" to "Self-Destructing?"   I understand the addition of "Bots" to use the space that had been the Mars Attacks logo on the sketch card, but am just curious about this change, and what might have changed on others.

Great Gags + Great Artwork + Great Homages = GREAT SET!

(Maybe this is what it takes to make Topps finally open their eyes and look in the right direction: an alien invasion!)

Actually it's just a change in the context. I thought "Self-Destructing" sounded more appropriate as it seems like they're so poorly made, they would self-destruct. "Self-destructive" sounds like they are intentionally inflicting harm upon themselves. I suppose either of them works, but one seems to fit better...

Maybe I read too much into things at times, but what does it say that Topps listed this set under the GPK brand and not under Wacky Packages in their website?

Doesn't mean much. They've been lumping all the print on demand Wackys under the GPK banner since they started in 2016. Even the Old School 6 set.

They did get the 2018 movies items in the correct space. You’d think at they very least they would show the Attacky set it both places.

1 - KICK ARSE SET NEIL!!! - ALL HAIL KING NEIL!!!!!

2 - Bought at $24.95 - No discount for 5 or 10 ??? :-(

3 - They should discount for more sets as will drive the print qty up and they will make more gross profit dollars

#StayWacky

4 - Get them the hell out of GPK ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I'm surprised they got it done so fast.  I had figured they'd change the base price by Monday, but was hoping they'd keep a bulk discount of some sort.

Hopefully they won't be able to increase the charge to my Paypal account.  I ended up paying $60 for 5 sets, which I was glad to do, but $135 is WAY more than I'd have spent.

guys there is NO WAY they will charge you more on your paypal - the sales are already done!! only thing they could do , that would REALLY SUCK, if refund the money and then you would have to buy again - i do not think they are doing that...they will honor what was sold!! they are REAL FKN IDIOTS though!! ;D ;D
