WP Old School 8 (w/ Spoilers)
« on: October 30, 2019, 01:56:46 PM »
Totally radical! Wacky Packages Old School 8 goes on sale next week on Thursday, Nov. 7th. The new set takes a detour to the 1980s taking on some iconic brands such as Mr. T Cereal, Hi-C Eccto Cooler, Atari, Gatorgum, Aqua Net, Garbage Pail Kids and much more. 30 cards, 3 puzzles, checklists, Ludlow, tan and white back variations, rough cards, sketch cards and pack header card (subject to change or me not getting this all correct, ha).


And don't worry, the 1970s will return...

Maybe Old School series 9 in 2020 will spotlight the 1990's (with take offs on 1990's products like Fruit String Thing, Crystal Pepsi, Napster, and the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comic book).

I wonder in OS8 if the Mr. T cereal spoof will feature Mrs. Klean as Mr. T.'s mom.

Any 1980's Charlie Brown/Peanuts related spoof in OS8 also?

Sorry, no Peanuts stuff in the new set. I did not put Mrs. Klean in the Mr. T parody.

1990s is always a possibility. Let's see how the 80s goes first. I have a lot more 70s I want to do as well and I kinda prefer the 60s over the 90s. The visuals on the 60s products are fantastic.

Sorry if I missed it, but am I correct in saying these are only being sold by the box ?  How do we purchase them?  How much are they and what forms of payment are accepted.  Thanks.  Jeff

p.s. Is this new set going to be entirely 80's titles?

I believe we will have to wait for Topps to tell us the purchasing options.

Any thought of doing today's products with their pre-1960s packaging (Coke, Pepsi, etc.)?

Hey... that's a cool idea.  1940s/50s products had a distinct look.  Would be cool to see what Wackys of those would look like.  Although you'd have to call them, "Golly Gee, Swell, Snazzy Packages" or something.

pre 70's would be cool as it would still give me that nostalgic feel...  even if a bit before our time.  For me, I never could get into any of the post 1980's Wacky titles.  I started collecting again in the mid 90's due to the nostalgic aspect of it all. Nothing against the purists who collect all Wackys regardless of the era...

Thanks Dave! Looking forward to the new set. I also like the older product packaging and visuals and would love to see those in a set.

I did suggest that idea to them and they want to see how this does. I want to do the 1920s, 40s, 60s, etc.

And Old School 8 the 1980's edition will not include any Disney nor Marvel nor Star Wars related spoof thanks to Disney C&D-ing any Wacky Pack spoofs of Disney owned properties since 2014 after stopping release of a Star Wars Wacky Packages series for Topps.

Hmm... can they just say the C&D didn't exist yet in the 80s?

It's to their own detriment, at least IMHO.

it's a strange situation though, as Topps didn't reprint even *one* of their wrappers for any of these properties for the 80th anniversary set.
A simple reprint. Beyond ridiculous.
That 1st series C-3PO wrapper is iconic, and those SW cards were tremendously popular and a huge boost to their bottom line in the late 70's. A glaring hole in their so-called "celebration".

Dave,

Is Old School 8 going to be sold as a complete set?  Or will we have to assemble it piecemeal as with the Attacky Packages?

They are posting the full set details on Monday on Facebook which I'll post here. I assume it's the same as the last two times.

The Topps Wacky Packages website page just posted this image (the first update on that site in over a year). Looks like it's being released on Wednesday not Thursday.
