they are REAL FKN IDIOTS though!! ;D ;D

I don't think that's fair.  A mistake was apparently made, that's all.  I thought it was a genuine offer (after all, they only charged $5 for the original Attacky Packages set), to get us to buy more sets and increase the print run.  As I've said, I would have purchased one, possibly two sets at $25.  I bought extras because of the lower prices, and I'll be bringing some to work to see if I can entice others who like sci-fi to get interested in possible future sets.

I think the reality is somewhere in between. They may not be "idiots", but they were quite careless to leave that dropdown on the web page. It was obviously incorrect [likely some leftover code, referring to 7 cards for $19.99], so assuming someone should have proofed the page before it went live...and it got past them...just sloppy work.

Don't know why you're so upset with my post, I just didn't think an employee making a mistake qualifies as the idiots you called them.  If it makes you feel better, it's possible that someone lost their job.

I bought Old School 6 and am happy with my purchase.

If their intent was to not offer a bulk deal, which seems to be the case now, then careless certainly applies.  We have had some whoppers slip through at work, like ordering a thousand 3-part forms that had items 1, 2, 2, 3, 4 on the list.  We used them all, but that poor secretary got teased for a year.

I think when you post something on-line ; you need to also be prepared to say the same thing to someone's face. If Topps comes to the next Philly show and has a table; I highly doubt Hustler will walk up to the table and say "You guys are a bunch of ****** Idiots!"  I know the comment was meant to be funny as well as make a point; but keep in mind this is a public board and if I worked for Topps and made that mistake; reading that comment would hurt. My two cents.  Andrew

I don't mind the $24.99 price. This set is worth every penny to me, and a bargain considering how much Topps asks for single cards. I'm a huge Star Wars card collector, but I refuse to pay $9.99 each day for that Countdown to Solo online set.

True, itís a very good price. Consider that the previous Rock n Roll Hall of Lame set was just 5 pieces for $29.99. Sure, thereís 2 copies of each, but still.

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?
the thing that bothers me more is that the set was not advertised in the Friday email from Topps. Or since, either.

That bothers me, too.  If sales are low because of no advertising, they'll think it was lack of interest.  Fortunately, Neil posted about it on the Mars Attacks facebook page for people who bought the Kickstarter set, and that should help.

I tried sharing a link to the Topps site on the Mars Attacks Revenge Facebook page, but I donít think the post was ever accepted.

This set is the best Wacky related offering from Topps since OS6. Very nice surprise. Thanks to Neil for making this one happen.

Sales number now posted:  348 sets

Easily beating out other recent online offerings, but I thought itíd be higher. Although Topps never advertised it either.

It's awful that they couldn't even be bothered to advertise it.  Numbers could be up because of the much more reasonable (accidental) prices at the beginning.

cool.
I have the typical incredible slowness of 6 business days before they even shipped ("within 3-5", LOL) and then another week of waiting before arrival.
Sometime next week for me.

Got my set today. Very cool to not have to bother selling any GPK's off on the bay. I just opened the set and enjoyed looking at a VERY sweet set!

My package was supposedly out for delivery with USPS at 8:43 this morning, but never showed up.  Tracking now says it had an incorrect address, and is being returned to Florida.   AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!

Once an order is placed, Topps usually sends an email pertaining to that order.  Check and see if they have the correct shipping address.  If so, then USPS is probably to blame.  Over the years, I've had shipments (though not with Topps) come as close as the next town over, only to be shipped away to some other part of the country.  Eventually they arrive, but it might take two weeks.  (On another note, I've had oversea shipments arrive quicker than shipments originating in the US.  Figure that one out!)
