GPK 2020 S1 Late to School set
« on: September 09, 2019, 10:40:37 AM »
Announced today- the first GPK set for 2020, late to school

Really excellent metal lunchboxes for the Hobby Collector editions, which also has what seems to be a new standard with a Wacky Packages chase set.
No images for these yet though.

These are cool. Not going to be movie posters. They are all real products so WP fans should be happy.

Yes, but at one per hobby box, how many will be available?

I assume these are all-new of course, but it would be fun to group together some school-themed OS titles, like one of the themed pages in the 1982 album book - Crakola, Scare Deal, Big Banana, Messy Marker, and so on.  Itís the right time of year for that theme!

In the past, I have purchased all of the GPK wackies.
Since these are technically not wackies and will cost
alot per card, I may pass this time. Time will tell.
I need to see the card images to decide.

Itís cool that they are including WP insert sets with the new GPK sets. Itís just too bad with the cards being limited to collector sets. These will be pricy sets to get. I think it also shows that we are all just starved for an actual WP set release and not just a small insert set.

@slamjim youíve been great with keeping us in the loop with upcoming WP sets. Do you have any new info on the Old School set for this year or any other WP set slated to be released? Thank you as always!

I'm sorry if I missed this, but what are the metal lunchboxes you're referring to?  I'd love to see a Wacky lunchbox (old school metal version, not the soft-sided one done a few years back).

here's the sell sheet with one lunch box image on it. Four different ones in total.
it's not clear what the size is, probably much smaller than an old '70s lunchbox.
They're definitely getting innovative with the GPK packaging. Last years bonus box was a tombstone, and this years is a wood coffin

Very cool!  I love that sort of thing and wish Topps would do some of it with Wackys.  Do the GPK collectors outnumber us that much that GPK gets so much love and we get so little?  Sigh.

If this is for 2020 and school-themed, am I wrong in thinking this is a full year away?  A school theme in any month other than Sept doesnít make much sense.  Guess itís another message-in-a-bottle release.  Not that Iím planning on spending $15-$20 per Wacky card anyway, just curious to see them.

flyer says January 2020
mid-term, back to school after the holiday break, I guess
