Is Cooties in August 2021 a spoof of the Cootie game made by Hasbro? And what will Bugly spoof? And what will Coma spoof?

Godzilla Glue should have been released in the March 2021 or April 2021 Wacky set at the same time the Godzilla VS. Kong movie was released to reopened movie theatres.

Ah! Great to see a design firmly rooted in the Wacky tradition! It leaves me wanting more. I hope to see you branching out into other products. We could use a trunk full of new gags. It seems we've embarked on a new age of Wackys!

Two questions: is the Wacky Playing Cards set going to be 54 cards, including two Jokers?  And are they going to be the same size as standard playing cards, so one can use them for, say, card games?

Playing card set will be at least 54 cards. Hoping to get the jokers in there, too.

I got a familiar "Topps" package in the mail yesterday and excitedly tore it open hoping for Wonky Ads or the July set. When I opened the bubble wrap the bottom card was a "Wacky Initials" card. I thought "Did they bring back the Initials and I didn't even see it?" When I looked at the rest of the cards, they were familiar, but I couldn't place them. Then I looked at the packing slip...


It was a replacement for the August 2020 set! I wrote in and complained that the set they sent was sticky and bumpy. Like an adhesive or something was sprayed on it. I remember a few posts on here of people who had the same issue. I forgot all about it until I opened this package!

Don't know why it took a year, maybe they have a one year claims timeframe and they wait until all claims are in before reprinting or sending out replacements? Anyway, they are sticky free and wonderful! :-)

I remember a week or two like that, didn't think Topps would do anything about it so I didn't complain.  I have also gotten a number of damaged stickers.

That's great, Neil! A playing card set wouldn't be complete without the two Jokers.

WOW. I remember you post about the stickiness and did have the same problem with a few of mine that week, but can't believer you got some replacements after a year!

  Makes me wonder where I can write to ask for everyone's missing Marathing Ludlows in the October Week 2 sets.

That would be really interesting to see if they would actually print a bunch of them. Did anyone on this forum actually get one for their set?

wow, my July packs were some of the most mixed up chase cards yet.
Shockingly, they mostly worked out in the end, though.
While some of the coupon sets were in the straight ordering (e.g. 5,6,7,8), others were just random (e.g. 3,5,11,19)
The playing cards were never in any consistent pairing either.
and one set didn't have a checklist cover card. I'll be submitting a claim on that one.

My coupons were all in straight ordering.  I also heard from another member that his were in the skip 4 order like 5, 10, 15, 20.  It really seemed like Topps had this down for a while, but talk about a backslide!!  And I have yet another damaged card, this time a coupon.

There are some fantastic characters in this set!

Yep. You hit the nail on the head! The USPS sent an order from Florida to NJ back to Florida then back to NJ. It is now on its way to NY.
