Just goes to show you can't believe everything you read on the Internet.  The date was wrong. [gasp]  hehehehe

I was fortunate that my regular carrier was in this morning sorting the mail, or it would have been sent back to Florida.  The rest of my order is at the P.O. but won't be sorted until Monday morning.  Fingers crossed!

Mine was "out for delivery" today and evidently stayed on the truck.  :sad:

Man, I must be leading a good life.  I got mine on Thursday, I think.  I have hardly even looked at them as the last two days have been so busy.  I'm hoping to trade my luds and tan backs for a base set, but I suspect that's not enough to offer.  Still, if someone ends up with lots of extra base sets and likes the back variations, please let me know.

I received my set late yesterday, but did not open it until today. I could not wait any longer. I needed a pick me up since once again iím suffering with those evil kidney stones. I must say that I like this set and though many of the products at first I did not remember, I do now.

I feel your pain De-Mented. I spent an hour and a half in the ER this morning for the very same thing. It was only 2mm and felt like a rock. Hope you feel better soon.

My stone is 5 mm and hopefully will pass soon; itís been around about 10 days so far. Itís my 10th time suffering with these things. I hope you recover too.

No color sketches for me -- still shut out by Topps.  None from the 1-17 albums, none from OS6 or OS7.  I feel like the Red Sox pitching staff entering the 2018 World Series.

Looking at recently completed sales I see base sets going for $35 and Pencil Sets going for $80.  That's $115 for a base set and pencil set with Puzzles and Checklists.  Those are reasonable prices IMO.

Wow, I held off from any spoilers until I saw the set for myself.  I must say this is one of the BEST sets yet!  :great: :great:

Can't decide on favorites yet, but the artwork and gags are terrific.  If I had to pick at the moment I would choose:

Teeth bar - Love candy bars and red-noses  :]  Great art and funny.
Sir Apefellow - What a design!  Props to the gag writer and the art rocks!

Uhh..Wait, I can't go on because I could go on and on.  ;D  I keep looking at them over and over they ALL have that special Wackys feel.  Thank you to everyone who worked on this set!

Might buy another set on ebay to just stick everywhere haha.  Really cool set.  This is why I continue to buy Old School sets!

More impressions:

Smirkoff - Great
Solarpain - Awesome
Shot Tomales - Good, but should the background be white?
Philthies - Great
Baron von  Deadberry - Extra Awesome
Ounce - Great, didn't know this was out in the 70's
Old Gods - Awesome
Muckers - Awesome
Fantastic Clod Rods - Extra Awesome - I used to get the originals as a kid!

Chunks - Great but what is the original product?
Squirrel Gut Zippers - ?  What is the original product?

All of them are fantastic.  Great set.   :great: :great:

Ah thanks, like I said I was avoiding any spoilers so I skimmed past any posts with images. 

Wow, never heard of Squirrel Nut Zippers.  Must've been regional.  As a kid I was a regular in the candy aisle of every convenience store in our town.  :]

I tried to not see any images in here, too, but I figured pictures of the source material wouldn't really spoil anything for me.

Never came across Squirrel Nut Zippers in my day (NYC area) either.  Probably the oddest name imaginable for a simple candy too.  I imagine itís the same as our Mary Janes, Bit O Honeys or something along those lines, either a caramel or peanut-based chewy candy.

For years I only knew it as the strange name of a band, before eventually finding out it was the name of a candy (and the band probably based theirs on it).

That candy was actually made by the same company as Bit-O-Honey and Mary Jane. In fact, Necco owned all these brands until they went out of business this past year. They auctioned off the brands a few months ago. Not sure where each of these brands ended up.

Yes, thanks for mentioning, I knew the name had entered my consciousness years ago but couldnt remember why.  Zoot Suit Riot was the radio hit if I remember correctly - they charted around the same time as Smashmouth, in the late 90ís, I remember that for sure.  As far as the candy, I occasionally visit a candy store that specializes in hard to find retro items, yet Iíve still never seen the dang things.

Oh no, I'm saddened to hear that NECCO went out of business.  While visiting my son at college in Boston earlier this year, I drove past their headquarters.  I never knew that it stood for the New England Confectionery Company.

Hey David, if you still intend to do glow in the dark Aurora Monster Model OLDS Wackys, I've got ideas for names for two of them:

*Woofman (or Dogman),
*Dummy.

Yep! I plan to do a few more at least. Definitely Wolfman and The Mummy. You can see on the first two that I shift the guys around on the top flap so those are the four.

The Aurora monster models were definitely another childhood fave of mine and I was very pleased to see the two you've done.  I'd love to see your take on the other two you've mentioned.  Not much text to work with, but I think you pulled off those first two fabulously.

Thanks! I'm real happy with the results of both of those. Can't wait to do the next one.
