But there's a book on Etsy.com someone named Dan Goodsell is selling that has his own drawing takes on Star Wars Wacky Packages :

Oh, that was cute!

Btw, I think the actual year Star Wars Wacky Packages were planned was 2014, not 2004. You might want to fix your title.

Dan Goodsell is a close friend and an old buddy of mine.  He's co-author of the fantastic book "Krazy Kids Food" - and he's one of the foundational influences/reasons I do what I do today. :-)

Hey, what's with the emoji? I'm just saying get the facts straight. Besides, it was ANS1 that came out in 2004. Star Wars Wacky Packages hadn't even been conceived back then.

If anyone wants to see examples of what Star Wars Wacky Packages would've looked like, go to Greg's website and look up Lost Wackys 4th Series. They're in the bonus items section.

I think the four examples shown were going to be the bonus stickers for Star Wars Wacky Packages, but I'm not sure.

if you want to see what the cards were going to look like, don't waste your time looking for those bootlegs, and just look here on the forum

Can we please have pictures transfered from that thread to this so we can see what might have been? And please do normal-sized pictures, not small ones like some of them are on that same thread.

And btw, those four on Greg's forum are also on that thread, so what's the difference between here and there? And why are you being so hard on Greg, Patrick? Last I heard, you're working on the various Wacky Packages Boxes series with him, and those series are in the same boat as Lost Wackys 3rd Series and 4th Series; i.e., they're not exactly officially snnctioned by Topps either, so isn't that the pot calling the kettle black? Just asking...

So I got to meet Dan Goodsell at Wonder Con this year.  Super great guy and a pleasure to chat with.  I snagged a copy of his Wacky inspired book and he was nice enough to do up a sketch card to go with it.  Also got a copy of his Space Duck.  Fun nostalgic look at the space hero genre from the perspective of a duck, from space.

He must have sold out that Star Wars book. The link now goes to a Space Duck book.

I saw the same thing...I thought I was missing something.
