Just received a shipping notice for the April set.

Of course, once again on a Friday and late in the day.

Same here. The infamous 3 day overnight delivery special.

I agree it was a totally bad collation of cards

yep, rather poor collation, and some diamond cuts too

I had a number of March diamond cut as well. I couldn't align the pieces to make a good pic of the puzzle backs.

(Image removed from quote.)

I HOPE folks would be curious! We certainly put a lot of effort into coming up with creative ideas and great artwork. It always mystifies me why there isn't more discussion about the individual gags and their execution on the forum. Which ones do you all like? Which were duds? Feedback would help guide what you see in the future!

It took my brain a few seconds to figure out what seemed odd on this nice May Wacky.



Not sure how many other Wacky's have not been rendered in a non 3D fashion. I was pretty sure this was a cereal and found pictures but also found this one that may have been used as a reference when creating the Wacky that does not show the box side, top, etc. :

Does that Neslow character look like the sloth named Flash Slothmore from the 2016 Disney animated movie "Zootopia"? If so, does this mean Disney finally settled and dropped the C&D so that Topps can spoof anything Disney/Marvel/Star Wars related even in future monthly Wacky Packages series?

Is this the same artist who worked on the Boboli pizza parody in the April set? I'm not expecting every artist to generate a Norman Sanders quality piece, but I hate the lack of attention to little details like the correct fonts! Boboli has a unique font for their logo, and the artist just lazily typed out the parody title in a Stencil font! So it looks like the same laziness here, with the lack of attention to little details!

Here's what I mean for the sloth character who appears in Disney's Zootopia compared to that sloth in the May 2022 Wacky Packages entry of Neslow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bY73vFGhSVk

I called Topps customer service today to complain about the diamond cut issue with the April sets.  I have to send pictures of the cards.  Anyone else who has this issue - complain!!l

The artist should have used a turtle instead of a rabbit (as in tortoise vs the hare race). C'mon!!

I take it Fast Mini Tweets is Frosted Mini-Wheats. To quote Charlie Brown, "Am I right? I said, am I right?"

I did submit a concept for Ground Up, a parody of Round Up, the week killer product.

I hesitate to say this is it, as there are times we can duplicate ideas, titles, who knows?

Why not just wait and see what it is a spoof of?  Don't you want to be surprised
and enjoy the anticipation?
