Topps listed the odds of getting a variant as 1 in every 6 boxes.  Well, I bought more than 6 boxes and didn't get a one.  I looked on ebay, and someone is selling the variants for $79 each.  Sorry, the variants are not worth that; it's kinda like spending it on a different colored border--no real addition to the joke.  Maybe if the variants were more numerous and included like a regular hit and made easier to collect, I might have tried for the set of 5.  But high-priced like that and almost impossible to get, for so little addition of appreciation?  Naw, I'll pass.

BUT as I said in the feedback thread, overall, I loved this set and (other than the variant issue) Topps mostly got the distribution of the hits, base puzzles, and base coupons correct.  Whoever went to bat at Topps for the Forum, did a great job convincing the higher-ups and made them listen to what we wanted.  The joke writers and artists did a spectacular job!  The parodies were funny, and I appreciated the detailed artwork on all the cards.  As I stated before, I'm VERY happy that the coupon backs were made part of the base set like they were in one of the very early ANS because, unlike colored borders, they actually add to the humor of the Wacky Package.  The other hits were fun, too, and not that difficult to "collect 'em all."  So, I can't wait to spend some time to sit back and really read and enjoy this new set.

62.5 of each.

Round that up for actual production  ;)

Thanks for that.   I invested to get the Hot Snails Vari.  Loving that title and have acquired the Trifecta of Vari/ Rainbow Foil and Gold Foil.   
Now I need a nice sketch to go with them.    ;)

I had two packs out of the ones I've opened that had a crushed base card inside.
Both were puzzle back #26, smashed at the bottom.
Odd.

Has everyone received their orders? I can't believe there's only been a handful of the variations up on eBay so far.

One seller must have purchased 150 boxes as they have 2 full sets of Rainbow Foils on the bay. Same seller has not listed ANY Vari's or Gold Foils yet.
It may be they think the value will rise on the Vari's and Golds if they wait. Of course lots may be listed tonight. I purchased the Hot Snails Vari on Monday Night and the Hot nails Gold Foil on Tues morning. Not many have turned up so far. I was able to trade here for the Hot Snails Rainbow foil.  Chad is doing a Hot Snails Sketch for me on 2024 Series Blank. I always go hard on the Hot Wheels Wackys.  ;)

What a noosance!  Too obvious?  No seriously very lame!  Luckily it was only 2 base cards but here’s hoping it was just a one time (or I guess 2 time) fluke!

I thought I’d share a photo of the sketch cards I bought directly from Wacky artist Kimber Grobman. Milk Foam and Gyppy Pop were commissions; the other two were titles she did on her own as artist returns and had for sale on her website. I really love her work, and am thrilled with this amazing group of sketch cards!

I've got pics posted in the Master Thread that you can check out.
http://www.wackypackagesforum.com/index.php?topic=7057.0

Unlike many prior art variant cards, these all have unique V#'s on them to make them easy to distinguish.
The variants are also a hit card in the pack, and not mixed in with the commons.

This is strange.  For some reason the one card in the set which seems to me to be less Wacky-ish and more GPK is a hot seller on eBay.  One Fartnite gold foil has already sold for an astounding $120 and here are the active ones at present.  Can anyone explain this?

Well then if forum members have extras of Fartnite foils (gold/rainbow) looks like they can do alright selling them on the secondary market!

Swiski, I think it might be like Angry Turds in ANS11 in which it's not based on any actual and/or existing game.

However, according to the Wacky Packages Wiki, the real product for this one is supposed to be PS3 Angry Birds Trilogy, for what it's worth. Do with this information as you will.

There doesn't appear to be a Nintendo Switch cartridge like that.
The card looks to be based on a mirror image of this ad with Raptor, Cuddle Team Leader and Brite Bomber, with BB replaced by TomatoHead.

Patrick well it’s Simko isn’t it?  To any of our brethren going to the Philly Show next week, please ask him so we can get the lowdown on what he based it on!

Nice!  I really like Kimber's work as well.  In fact, the last three (or possibly 3 out of 4) sketch cards I've gotten in packs/boxes were from her.  Very happy with all three of them.

Yes, it's Joe's.
Speaking of - I've now posted to the Master List the 24 base card paintings that I've gathered so far for this set (including yours Joe - thanks for sharing!)

That's true, of course, but I think Joe's point is compared to previous releases with chase cards, there's hardly any available from the usual places.

I think some people are holding them back with the hopes of them pulling over $200 in the future. No proof of this. Just a wacky feeling.

I based the above on a 1875 box run, which I determined from the fixed number of foil cards.

I heard from a friend that they were nowhere near 1 per six boxes, and that Topps blew off complaints about it.
