The erasers just hit ebay.

Thanks for the heads up. I plan on buying one set, either from a forum member or from eBay.

Hmmmm, makes you wonder how the seller came by these items "from their private collection".
Since those of us who have had them on pre-order from several different sources have
not received any notification of shipping, etc. I don't prescribe to conspiracy theories but I think
an alien is working undercover in Topps, transmitting product back in time through a trans-dimensional
portal where these items are placed on auction on eBay.... by Elvis.

I pre-ordered a box.  Depending on collation, I may have an extra set to sell.

Are the images printed on the rubber or are they wrappers wrapped around the rubber?

Wrappers on the rubber, no printing on the erasers, I will have an extra set if I can trade for the seven I need.

I pre-ordered from TFAW back in Dec. 29th. Their site shows they don't offer them for sale anymore and my order still shows backorder.
I might have to hit Target!

Hey, those look pretty cool. Somehow I imagined they would be one color. I like the looks of these a lot.

Not bad!  And the cards/stickers with them are different from the regular stickers, so more to collect.  Looks like getting a set of those in nice shape will be a real challenge.

Not too bad, most are in very good to excellent shape! The stickers match the erasers in each pack.

So what is the retail price of these at Target?  The price is washed out by the flash on your image.

The cards are different?  Wow, I am surprised about that but pleasantly surprised!  I haven't been paying too much attention to them expecting them to be regular ANS titles.  How many different titles are there to collect?

As I recall, the eraser flyer said "Collect all 24", so if there's a sticker for each eraser, 24 different stickers to collect!  Now I wish I'd pre-ordered a box or two.

24 titles. 1 for each eraser.
and they'd have to be different, no way around it. The original card backs would make no sense haphazardly collected together like this. And it looks like they all have primary color borders too.

these look better than I thought they would. My initial impression is that they'd all be thick slabs cut into the right shape with a sticker stuck only on the top side. These have a bit more shape to them and have full wrap around stickers. Nice.
And I'm totally loving having one Die Cut thrown in there. Long live Demented!!

Demented, Boreo and ZitKat look really good. These appear to be very small compared to the size of the hands in the picture.

I agree, these are much better than I was expecting.  I called and asked at my comic shop if they can order some for me, should know by tomorrow night.  Otherwise, off to Target!

Looking at the pictures it appears to me that there are 18 different erasers and stickers not 24. The photo checklist only has 18 on it and the assembled pile only has 18 erasers.

not quite, there are 21 different erasers in that picture.
As for a checklist, there are 18 on the front of that picture checklist (in alphabetic order), but there are 6 more for sure. I've picked out 5 of them.
this is what I have. 1-18 are on the front of the list:

1.   Boreo
2.   Capn Crutch
3.   CaveManWich
4.   Creeps
5.   Dead Bull
6.   Demented
7.   Ditz
8.   Drool Aid
9.   Fool
10.   Frosted Snakes
11.   Geek Giant
12.   Jelly Bully
13.   Lapton
14.   Mice Krispies
15.   Miniature Maid
16.   Prickles
17.   Slacker Jack
18.   Sour Puss

   Spite
   Zit Kat

Ran right out to target located right nest door to my work.  (nothing there but a mom yelling at a 3yr old, and thinking that she is getting through to him).  I have, in a 20 mile radius about 30 targets and I am going to be checking them this week.

Can we speculate on what stickers and erasers from this set will sell for on the secondary market?
$3 for 3 erasers and 3 stickers is the retail. How do we determine a value for the erasers vs the stickers?
I figure 50 Cents each for erasers and for stickers?   Thoughts?
