That's awful.

I think they are sending orders via carrier turtle.

I didn't look at how much expedited shipping would have cost.

How cool would these be if they came in a wax wrapper????  Plastic wrap, a cardboard box, foam insert, plastic case and another foam insert. OR  1 wax wrapper?    am I nuts?

A wax wrapper works for me.  Without the added weight, maybe they could've shipped them faster too!

I don't think wax wrappers are a possibility any longer, as they have to be done by hand.  But a small jewel case in an opaque wrapper would save a lot of packaging waste and result in smaller parcels to ship.  Topps could have saved a lot of money shipping out the smaller packs; hopefully that savings would have been passed onto the customers.

Here in Indiana, I am showing delivery by end of Wednesday 2/12.

Even here in NJ, mine are finally supposed to arrive today.

Mars Attacks Uprising is doing wax packs, 5 cards for 6 bucks. Surly they can work something out.

Alien craft are supposed to be able to travel at the speed of light or something, right?  So, why not ship via Martian saucer?  Did Bugs Bunny steal that little dude's "Uranium-236 Space Modulaaay-torrrrrz" again?

Where's the Kaboom?  There's supposed to be an earth-shattering Kaboom!!

Actually, it's the Iludium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator-r-r-r-r-r or, as we call it on Earth, dynamite. It took Marvin the Martian 2,000 years to invent something that Earthlings had already invented at least a century before.

And did anyone else besides me see in Hare-way to the Stars that he put the little thing in his own telescope instead of somewhere on Earth, the planet he wanted to blow up just because it blocked his view of Venus? Now who's the superior intellect around here? Certainly not him!

If he's the best that Mars has to offer, I can see why they haven't conquered us yet.

I'm glad you clarified that.  That's how I always remembered it sounding.  But I had no idea what that was, so I thought maybe he was talking about Uranium-236 and just pronounced it weird.  I probably haven't seen that episode since I was 12, too.

Perfect match.  Now you have to try to find a product for Avatar's "Unobtainium".

(Mars Attacks: Uprising)    Newly Added!

Get a special GPK 6-card collector pack for just $10!  A complete set, in one wax pack! 


And this cant be done for any Wackys why???????? Oh!!! that's right, FLOPPS is not doing this one. They sub contracted it out to people who may actually know what they are doing.

We have asked for this for a decade, maybe longer.

Jim

(side note)  NEIL, Awsome job!!!  Bought 25 packs, and didn't see the contest till it was to late. But hey, all I wanted was to support a great project.

Thanks for the very kind words James! You are among the super stellar supporters! And next set, I'll make sure to promote the give-away sooner, so more people have an opportunity to join in the fun!

FINALLY GOT MY ATTACKY PACKS...  Here's the collation I got in my 5 packs (in case anyone is keeping track):
L = LUDLOW, P=PUZZLE, FP = FULL PUZZLE PICTURE, CL = CHECKLIST, C = COUPON

2L, 8P, 14P, 5P, 10CL, 4P
11L, 13C, 3P, 10CL, 2P, 8P
13L, 7P, 12C, 1P, 15C, 6P
12L, 6P, 11C, 7P, 13C, 8P
15L, 14C, 5P, 11FP, 4P, 9P

So, I ended up with a full set of 15 common-back titles, 5 Luds, and zero sketch-cards.

I'm assuming that's fairly common?

Yes based on my experience.
