On the Glum and Empty variants, the pink and white candies switched colors...

I can't figure out the Pepsea-Cola variants. Anyone?

I don't have a picture but the 2 versions of the Haunts are "Tomato Paste that will Haunt Your Stomach Forever" and "Make the Switch from Red Tomatoes to Dead Tomatoes with Haunted".

Thanks! I didn't see it at first because images of printed cards for one variant are out there but not the other. The Topps preview image shows the green and orange fishes are flipped.

What will be fun now is to find out if the variants were evenly printed. If not, which ones are the rares?

I only bought one set, so I'm happy with whatever version I own.

I don't think they are even.  I just went through 14 sets to assemble one set of all 7 variations.  Hopefully there's nothing different about the checklists, since all 14 I just looked at were the same  :P

Actually, the fish themselves are switched!

When you have a chance, can you please post a list of the variants you noticed are the short prints?

I just went through 23 sets I had here.  These are the short prints:

Pepsea with the small green fish on the left and the larger orange fish on the right  (got 1)
Haunts with "Tomato Paste That Will Haunt Your Stomach Forever!"  (got 2)
Nerdz with the green bow tie  (got 3)
Blistered with the black helmet  (got 3)
Monkey Way with the banana logo on the helmet  (got 1)
Voo-Doo with the triangle on the mask in red  (got 4)
Glum & Empty with the top right candy pieces in pink (got 2)

I know I have more sets somewhere, must look......... 

I never would have noticed this because I was deliberately trying not to handle these lest I damage the perfs  :o

The variations make the set even more interesting!

Thanks, Raw Goo. I'll have to take a look at mine being that I ordered late and received my set late. 

I just wonder if all variations were printed all at once and randomly mixed together or there was an early/late printing with variations being more prevalent later on in the run.
-----------------------

Just checked mine: 0 of 7 "short print"variations.

Interesting that the Glum & Empty variation is on the Wonky itself, while the other variations involve the background art/text.

If Topps had mentioned the variations, they might have sold more sets.  I should have 17 more sets somewhere to check.  Fingers crossed that I'll find them tomorrow!

Agree - Topps would have attracted "completists" like myself and I definitely would have bought more sets.

They absolutely would have sold more sets. The variations make this set even more exciting. Wacky Packages really needs a brand manager to promote these sets. Most of the set promotions are done by the artists on this site. Topps canít even really update their Facebook page and they donít promote WP on their other social media accounts. Really too bad.

I noticed that these variations come mostly one per pack (if they show up) but the very first pack I opened had 2 variations!

I now have the set of 7 Variant Wonky Ads and am impressed with how subtle some of the variations are.  Do we have any idea if/ when a second Wonky set will be made?  Mt sense is they will sell alot more sets if we know Variants will be included.
