I'd say more GPK inspired than WP inspired.  In fact, I don't see anything WP related at all.

I think I am "Inspired" to pass on this offering. Not "Wacky" enough for my taste.

Woo! I know it's not a Wacky set, but the first 'Horror-ible' set was the best GPK set in more than a decade.

Definitely looking forward to this one!

Thanks View Monster, and fooey on the rest of you!!! You're as bad as the GPK 'fans' who start complaining as soon as a new set is announced! I was going to post a nice image of my 'Leaking Kong' painting but have reconsidered thanks to this less than encouraging response.

   Just so you know... GPK sales are whats keeping any hopes of a new Wacky Packages set alive. The more you dis GPK and the GPK/Wacky crossovers, the worse your chances of seeing a new Wacky only release.

Although I donít actively collect GPK, I see a lot of potential with this release.  Horror- and Halloween-themed Wackys have always held a special place in collectors hearts; canít see why the same couldnít be true for GPK.  Above all, the new GPK stuff has remained true to the originals in terms of artistic quality and overall vibe.  Same canít be said for the last couple ANS sets, especially the 50th Anniversary set and the last ANS if I remember correctly.  While I pine for another ANS set as much as anyone, my enthusiasm is tempered by wondering if it will be anywhere near as good as the earlier sets.  It seems the pop-culture mashup approach is taking hold.

When I say ANS I mean strictly Wackys.  Just realized GPK uses similar vernacular.  Sorry for any confusion.

Joe,   No disrespect to you intended. Your work is stellar. I am tired of having to purchase GPK sets to get Wackies. Topps need to keep the lines separate. It's like having to purchase a Stones LP to get a few Pink Floyd songs when you are not a Stones fan.

What you are not seeing in the ads is the candy which is WAY more WP than GPK or at least a perfectly balanced mix. It's essentially a good 'ole WP with a character but the character is a GPK. I've seen them all and any WP fan would want these.

Also, Smokin is right, the GPK success is helping WP. There is definitely a bunch of WP things coming out this year and you will be happy with ALL of them. A lot. Those last few sets, the baseball, 50th and even the movie set are a thing of the past. Stay tuned.

Looking forward to it all!  Smokin' has the best stories, too!  There should be a micro-chip
on specially-marked cards, that when activated, have him telling one of his classics!

That, and a scratch-n-sniff subset, I've always tried to pitch that!   :]

I just don't like the idea! First we had to buy Crappy Political wackys to keep wackys going. Then we had to buy Crappy baseball, movie and other shitty sets to keep wackys alive. Now, now we have to buy GPK sets to keep wackys alive.  Wackys only or I quit!

looking forward to Smokin' Joe's Halloween candy cards, he does fantastic monsters. These sound like they will be a great subset to pick up.

and scratch-n-sniff? how have Wacky's not had that yet? GPK has had them. Seems like a perfect marriage of Wacky products and Wacky smells. Bring 'em!

of course, it would be "scratch 'n sniff at your own risk"  ;D
