Got mine Thanks!! But if any of you hate Brain Blo or Gooey Looie don't blame Paul. Those are both mine, concept and art.

Yes, those both are all Chad, although if there is a "Brain SLOW," that could be me hehe

Got mine yesterday.  Great job, Neil, et al.  As usual, fun jokes and excellent art work by all the artists involved on the project.  I also thought the puzzle pieces on the backs were a nice touch.  Thanks for making Halloween special for all of us here on the Forum.  Still waiting to see what becomes of last year's set, though........

Well said, I agree. Thanks to all involved!

Very well done!  Nice gags, artwork, and packaging.  With their enlarged illustrations, the six major cards (candy/puzzle cards) really jump out at you.  (I believe this was what the thin black borders were supposed to do, though they never quite seem to achieve the same effect.)  The puzzle was also a nice surprise.  Overall, very well designed and produced.  Very professional.  I am even more appreciative when I consider that this set is a labor of love, simply conceived for us to revel in the wacky spirit of Halloween and put a smile on everyone's face.  Thank you, everyone!

Well said. Kudos to the Camera Crew as this set is very well done! I got a nice Mr. Crowbar sketch by Chad. I especially like the 6 piece puzzle and the thick card stock these were done on. Very professional and they should hold up well.

The whole project got me to thinking about future projects I'd like to see. How about more themed Holiday projects throughout the year?
I was thinking it would be awesome to have a themed set for New Years, Valentine's day, St Patricks Day, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween (of course), Thanksgiving, and Christmas! I'm sure all of the forum folks would support it and could even contribute with ideas and suggestions. Maybe we could even pre-pay for such a project as a way to defray some of the upfront costs. That way Neil and the other artists involved would have a guaranteed base of people who buy into the project presale. I know I would be happy to contribute to such a project and think it would be exciting to know we can look forward to various themed sets throughout the year as well as any sets that Topps may put out as well!

This set was really well done and I'd like to see more! Again, thanks to Neil and all the folks who contributed. Great job!

I'm making a list as to who wants to join me in the Pumpkin Patch this Halloween, to wait for the Great Pumpkin
to come down and visit the best pumpkin patch and bring candy and presents to all the good boys and girls!

I'm sure I can get my great friend, All-Brain, to join me, any others?  Hopefully the World Series will be
over by then (with the BoSox winners!)!

Did you accidentally get doubles in the 3 packs you bought? Just curious how some people need to trade cards if they bought 3 packs.

My 3 packs came out just right, with no extras to trade.

Chad didn't need to buy any packs. I sent all the artists and writers cards as a thank you. I may have inadvertently missed a couple of cards when I was collated their extras. Chad, give me a shout if you still need any

Butterfinger
Junior Mints
Dots
Rain-Blo Gum
Hershey's Mr. Goodbar
Chewy Louie
Hershey's Skor
Swanson Broth
Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea
All of these I know, except for Chewy-Louie. What exactly is this product-a candy or a gum? Or is it something else altogether?

And which Swanson Broth was parodied? Chicken broth, beef broth, what?

UPDATE: Never mind; Patrick just put them on the Spreadsheet. Chewy-Louie is a candy bar and it was beef broth.

I was a bit slow on getting mine (entirely my fault) but they arrived today and I want to add my thanks and congrats to all involved.  Great set and a fun addition to our Wacky hobby!  Topps could take a lesson from those behind this set.  You guys rock!

okay, here's the plan.... I hope to see everyone join me in the Pumpkin Patch (instead of silly ol' candy collecting door to door) and we'll wait for the Great Pumpkin to come down and bring us lots of candy and toys and everything, as I know we have the BEST pumpkin patch in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD this year!
