Any hint or idea on how much each set/pack/box will cost? Will this be a retail or strictly an online series?


Topps is such a tease...I can't wait...I need my Wacky fix... :57:

Releases have all been online for a good while now, and the flyer indicates “only at Topps.com”, so this will be the same.

My first guess is that it will be very similar to last year’s ANS release. $20 / pack or $90 / 5-pack. We’ll find out next week.

Andrew I agree!  Hopefully it will have something for everyone.  I have a feeling there’ll be something right in your wheelhouse!

Please tell me this is real, and acording to the logo, it's 90s related!

It's real, not 90s related. Just giving the set a fresh coat of paint!

Looks sharp and a nice call back to the 90s box art.

Any story to go along with it?

We just really liked the idea of a mascot/character for this set. I inked the art and Halsey did a fantastic job on the coloring. Hoping the character catches on, sorta like the paste ot anywhere kid.

Maybe we should name him. Amy suggestions?!

Looks great!

Is that Halsey’s signature on the slip of paper?

That name reminds me of an old Saturday morning educational show from McDonald's that was shown between TV series named What's On Your Plate? with your host, Willie Munchright.

It uses the 1991 Wacky Packages series logo!

Could this be a hint that before 2024 ends we may see for Wacky Packages Old School 12 with parodies of 1990's products Wacky Package style?

I've really enjoyed the past couple Wacky series and I hope this keeps up the quality.  While I admit I wasn't happy when I saw the '91 Wacky logo, I was happy when I spied the products in the grocery cart.  Looking forward to learning more about this set and seeing a spoiler or two :)

I hope it turns out that Topps uses my idea of publishing, after all these years, what's left of the lost 1992 Series.

FYI - I met Eric Roberts - that's right the real Eric Roberts in the bathroom ( pissing next to each other) at Pisano-Con yesterday and i had to ask if he was a huge WP Investor - he confirmed, what might have been prior fact, that he is NOT the big 'Eric Roberts' that had owned so many WP Original art from years ago - Wanted to confirm for myself - but he was very cool and even commented on my daughter's great red curly hair - Super Nice Guy BTW - Met a bunch of Soprano Actors as well - all super cool - for me it goes right in line with the OLDS11 "MOB' Original Art i won - so very cool - just thought I would share... :] :] :]

Joe, too cool, what a fun story!  It’s great to be at big cons and see stars but to have some one on one time is really something!  Now did he even know what Wacky Packages are?  He would have been 11 when the die-cuts came out and 17 for series 1 so he’s around the right age group.

So no more suggestions to Neil’s name the mascot question?
I guess naming is more of a GPK thing but I know there’s a perfect one out there.  Maybe something like Willie Getem or Chase M. All?

Given he's pushing a shopping cart, perhaps Checkout Carter or something like that, which is indeed akin to a GPK name.
