So what? They are issued by Topps and made by a third party vendor.

Andrew mentioned the World’s Smallest Hot Wheels earlier - there is a growing collection of “World’s Smallest ...........” for a variety of toys, like Silly Putty, Duncan yo-yo, GI Joe, Barbie, Etch-a-Sketch, etc, all of which appear to retain their original brand name authenticity while being packaged by this “World’s Smallest” company.  So I would think of these 3D Wackys the same way - still basically genuinely Topps despite another company’s possible involvement in the marketing.

Thanks for the explanation.  After seeing the "these people didn't read the thread" post, I went back & read them again (as I did read them before posting), but I didn't see any full explanation like this earlier, unless someone had deleted it or something.  I'm not as active in the hobby anymore, so I've never heard of "World's Smallest".  I've seen a lot of knockoffs before, but these looked legit and really well-done.  So, I was surprised not to see some kind of "Topps" copyright or logo on them.

true, surprising that Topps is not more prominent, but the logo is there in one of the shots of the packaging

I just thought I’d mention because it sounded like Andrew may have stumbled upon the “World’s Smallest” Hot Wheels purely as a Hot Wheels enthusiast, and may not have been aware that the Hot Wheels was just one of several toys offered by that company in miniature.  From that perspective, this Wacky release makes a lot more sense.  FYI,  I don’t think there were any deleted posts mentioning other products, so nothing to feel bad about.

I occasionally visit a vintage candy store on the lower east side of NYC, and that is where I saw all these mini items.  They try to round out their offerings with retro-vintage toys and games, Pez special sets, old comics, vinyl records, vintage gumball machines, lunchboxes, etc.  Gives the place a more kitschy feel.   I think I’ve seen “World’s Smallest” products elsewhere too, but not sure where...maybe Target.

OK, I've added "Mini" ahead of the thread title, and changed all the responses to match.

Thank you!!  I merged two separate threads about this into one as well; I hope that didn't cause too much confusion.  I thought I got that pretty quick.

Looking forward to these!

I checked with my contact at littleobsessed.com   

They do not do pre-orders; but they do offer good pricing. I think the price Toy Wiz has of $5.99 for the pack of 5 Mini 3D Wacky's is high considering the company stated $3.00 per pack at Toy Fair.

Andrew is it possible that $3 was the wholesale price and not the retail price?  It is Toyfare which, I believe, is for wholesalers and not the general public.

You are probably correct. Thanks for that observation. I will still assert that littleobsessed will have better pricing than Toywiz.

If there had been Hangrees at Toy Fair, someone would have reported on it somewhere by now.

I saw these pics on Facebook recently and was super excited for these.  I have missed Wacky licensed items in the past few years and this looks to be about as good as any of them.  I love seeing the original series titles and some of the excellent ANS ones (I loved Just For Wolfmen, though I know someone else seemed to knock it in an earlier post).  I do hope they get rid of some of the lousier ANS titles, but that won't stop me from buying at least a set of these.  I'll keep my eyes open for any reasonably priced pre-orders and I appreciate anyone else doing the same.

This is definitely one of the Wacky items I've most looked forward to.  Can't wait to learn more and add them to my collection.

Thanks for that info!  I don't think I've used toywiz before (except possibly a few years ago when I was less than impressed).  I'm hoping that they will be cheaper on Amazon and/or available for purchase at Target or some other retailer.

I'm not overly wild about the fact that there are more (33) ANS products than classic (27), but I do like the selection of the original series titles.

I hope they're short enough to fit in my Johnny Lightning display cases!  Those worked great for the first erasers, but the later soda bottles were too tall to stand up.

I copied this description from ToyWiz. 60 Regular Wacky's plus 6 Rare Chase Wackys (Crust, Exceedrin and Jail-o included). Get ready for a difficult set to put together. When they did the 3 Chase Mini Hot Wheels in the 50th Anniv Hot Wheels Release; they packed one per 24 car case. The Wacky Stickers are 1 per $5.99 cup so the sticker set will rough to assemble also. I will ask my contact at Super Impulse for more info.

I wish there wouldn't be chase figures, but I guess that's how it goes these days.  I suspect I won't even try for a sticker set, though I'll be curious what the stickers look like.

The chase wackys will be unique titles which is not how they did it with Hot Wheels (Alternate Decorations on cars in the regular release). So the only
way to get Jail-O, Exceedrin, Crust, Boredoms, Jerkson's and Big League Spew will be the chase ones.
The stickers have a all black background and look pretty cool IMO.   I checked with another seller and these should be in stock at dealers around 8/3.

They’re shown in the pictures at the beginning of the thread, with the all black borders ( and their corners cut off)

From those pictures, the sticker set appeared to be just 10 titles, and they are unique titles not in the mini figures.

Stickers:
Angry jack
Blunder bread
Campy soup
Cheezilla's
Dopey Whip
Dubble Bobble
Dukin' donuts
Hawaiian punks
Kook-aid

I heard back from Super Impulse on where to buy these. No big box stores at this time.  I asked about the stickers in terms of how many will there be and what titles. I will report back.

I kind of wish they had spread all these new Wackys out just a little bit.  We had a long desert, and now a deluge.  Maybe I'll be trading Wonkys for Minis.

I like to use littleobsessed.com to purchase the World's smallest line. They said they will stock the single packs beginning 8/2 and will offer a case discount like ToyWiz. They are checking if they will get the double packs in. They are also looking into setting up pre-orders for this release; but they do not usually do that.

What an interesting choice to use stickers different from the products themselves.  I'll definitely focus on collecting the original series titles.

Here is the image of the display box from the Toy Whiz website. Interesting that they used a font very similar to the original 1967 Wacky Packages wrapper for the Wacky Packages logo.
