there's a one-sheet now on ebay.
looks like there might be two pack types? a small foil pack with 3 erasers + 3 stickers, and a larger blister pack with 6 erasers.

I can't find the auction on ebay. Anyone have a link?

I just looked over the flyer and don't see anywhere that states 6 erasers. One says 'plus 3 mystery erasers' but doesn't sat a total of 6 or says there are 3 erasers plus 3 additional erasers.

Looks like it says '6 Collectible Erasers" at the bottom right corner of the blister pack.

it's a bit fuzzy, but that's what it looks like:  6 Collectible Erasers.

which makes me wonder if there will be several different blister packs. Each will have 3 erasers as pictured on the blister itself, and then there are 3 additional 'mystery' which could be any of the other 21. Potentially 8 different blister packages? Not much fun if every single blister contained Chimps, Sneez-It and Mtn Dude.

Wow, I was looking at that on my iPad and couldn't make it out. I just looked at it on my computer and I can still barley make it out. You guys have great eyes!

I wonder when they will start to ship? I've had my order in for awhile.

That flyer makes it look like the erasers are flat, cut in the shape of the product, with the Wacky image pasted on. For some reason I thought that these would be more 3-dimensional, i.e. that the cans would be cylindrical. I guess I hadn't looked that closely before.

I believe they are 3-D. I'm trying to recall the brief conversation I had about these but I believe I remember them saying they were all shaped like the products and had a little mini sticker on them. They likened them to bigger versions of those older Wacky gumball machine trinkets. I think there are 24 different titles.

We will need some type of a  frame for this 21 eraser set. I can envision a nice little black frame with a WP Eraser Logo on top and space to show off your wicked cool sculpted Eraser collection. If they are pretty flat with a a little 3D effect that might work.

Good idea.
Michael's has a nice variety of shadowbox frames. I may get one large enough to hold a sealed blister and regular pack as well.

Michaels sounds like a good place to find one. Just look for a coupon for 30% off since I recall seeing them often.

I was at my local comic shop (from whom I ordered a box of these erasers) today and asked what date they were expected to arrive.  I was told Wed March 16th, which I believe is the same date that's been given before (maybe it was the 9th).  I definitely look forward to these odd little Wackys arriving!

How much was it for a box and how many come in a box? 24?

If I recall correctly (and I believe I do), it was $72 for a box of 24 packs, each of which contained three erasers.  Now that I think about it, that's a buck an eraser, which does seem a bit high, but that is my recollection.  I believe a couple people ordered boxes more cheaply from an online store.

I saw erasers in a vending machine inside the entry way of Toysrus so I guess there is some kind of eraser craze.  I love the concept, can't wait to see people grading erasers!
LOL. No doubt. Not the band. hahaha

Does anyone have a new link to buy these. I went to the site Daryl listed and they no longer list Wackys. I preordered from them but now I'm a bit worried.

Grading the erasers.....that is funny! I missed that post I guess.  If it has a couple rub marks from being used it would drop it to EX+!

I just checked my order and it linked it to the wacky erasers. Now it shows no available. Glad I ordered early. Now hope they show up.

Any word on when these are coming out?  I saw a website that had a March 16 date but another one said June!  Any chance of it being this month?

I called the local comic shop from which I ordered my box of erasers and was told it wouldn't be arriving this week.  Instead, it would be two weeks at the earliest.  Too bad.  With OLDS2 (and postcards?) coming soon, I can wait, but, geez, it's been a while since I've bought anything wacky.

next week's releases were posted today, and no wacky erasers were listed for 3/23.
those other listings of May/June are starting to look pretty realistic

Dude, I know I've read most of this thread, but when I came back to the forum after a few months, I'm back to post #1 of this thread.  Is this a known problem? 

I received an email from Leslie about Wacky Package erasers from Topps. She sent me a picture of the flyer but I can't add it to the forum on my iPhone. It's something about 22 erasers total packaged with one eraser and 3 cards. They seem to be all ANS titles. Anyone know about this?

Hey, I like the Netflix new button. It's better than the starred blue button. It's also easier to hit while on the iPad.
