You seem like you might be on the fence about another set ;) . Seriously, I've already proposed a followup, so we'll see what happens...in the meantime, here's another Attacky Packages sketch for your amusement...

Haven't heard anything about these in a long time. Did Neil finally run out of ideas after all this time?

Neil, any plans for a new set of these? There's a whole lot more of them that can be done that haven't been done - yet (see p. 3, Reply #89).

Realistically, the best way to make another set is to write your favorite Topps editor and tell them you want to see more Attacky Packages. And I agree, there's plenty of really great ideas still to be made!

And on that note while you’re writing them...ask for a Mars Attacks Old School Set to be made. Get back to the darker pulpy art. This is why the original set stands alone. New sets have been too comical and have been taken in the wrong direct art-wise.

Topps already did this three times - Mars Attacks Archives in 1994, the Mars Attacks Screamin' model kit cards in 1995 (which, I think, were meant to be connected with Archives, since they used the same story line) and Mars Attacks Heritage in 2012, the 50th anniversary year of the series. In the cases of Archives and Heritage they even added 21 deleted cards from back then - 11 in Archives and 10 in Heritage, for a grand total of 85 cards in all, including the nine model kit cards.

And Mars Attacks: The Revenge! actually picked up Mars Attacks: The Original Version (as I call it) in 2017, the 55th anniversary of the series, took place five years after the first story ended (the two stories took place in 1962 and 1967, respectively) and it was great! I didn't see anything comical about that series. In fact, one part that I liked about it is that we finally found out what happened to that captured Martian from the Classic 55! In fact, I don't even that, back then, Topps even conceived that the story would ever be continued beyond Mars' destruction (however, whether or not they'll actually make a third story, 60th anniversary in 2022 or otherwise, remains to be seen...although I wouldn't mind if they stopped it right now, depending on how the second series actually did in the end - in other words, we make up the third act).

Now, if they would just tell us if they're ever going to continue Mars Attacks: The Second Version (i.e., Mars Attacks: Invasion and Mars Attacks: Occupation) beyond that point...

The problem with the re releases is that the small subsets were the best part. The main sets weren’t that great. I have all the MA sets and took part in the MA Kickstarter set. All I’m saying is that the set needs to be simplified and go back to basics. The art in the MA Revenge Set was better it still wasn’t great and still lacked the classic feel. How they released the set as a boxed set was dumb. Also the set had way too many border variations and the pencil set shouldn’t have been repeated in all border colours. It should have just been a subset. They could even just release it as a online set similar to what’s being done with the WP Old School sets. Simple classic sets with some variations and the ability to complete the entire set. Forget all the medallion and patch chase cards. It should all be about the art and the history of the set. Darker colours and a nostalgic feel to it.
