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!

ToyWiz already posting pre-orders.
Pics of the product are taken from the Toy Fair - the asking prices are not! LOL

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.

Did the recent 2020 Toy Fair also preview a second series of MGA's The Hangrees which features mini Wacky Package take poop related products?

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.
