Neil, yeah I can see why Croco-Crunch sort of went unpublished.  It is a little extreme...funny to be sure...but probably too extreme for Topps to touch.

Thought it might be time to post a weekly "Unpublished Wacky of the Week" (or maybe monthly!).So without further ado, here's "Croco Munch (R rated version), an unpub written by Mark Stepper from the 3rd series wacky postcards:
Very Cool!!!

You're right, Martin. It is a little extreme but I find it funnier than the PG version, which I have laying around here somewhere! Mark actually likes the PG version better, so I'll try to post it sometime if I can find it!

To streamline things, I decided to remove last week's art and upload this week's art to the 1st post. I should make the images easier to find!

Neil, I like Led Baron.  You did a great job painting that one.

Thanks, guys! Painting Led Baron was a bit tricky. At first, I planned to distort the box shape so that it fit the wacky sticker format, but that would have meant angling the front of the package. That would have looked really odd, so I stuck with the square. Oh well, maybe someday they'll make wacky napkins!

I guess square Wackys can be tricky but they did do Canquit and Moron Pot Pies, although, to me, those two did seem a bit odd.  Still, Led Baron is really cool.

Up next, we have an original unpublished painting I did for the All New Series - Led Baron Pizza - mmmm!

Neil what about the previous weeks pictures. Do you want to catalog these for newer members? Maybe you could do a separate post for each week and number them. Such as Neil Original - Week 1 and so on. Then people can comment on each picture? Thoughts?
I love the Led Baron by the way. That is cool!

If a separate post for the next week's image works better, then I'm all for it!

This is your area so you can do anything you want. I just noticed that the other images you had from last week are gone so if a new forum member looks at the posts in the topic they are not going to know what people are commenting on. My suggestion is to do a separate weekly topic with the different image. That way all the discussion will be about that image. You can call the topics anything you like.

I would prefer a separate post for each image because if I click on the "new" button to look at the unread messages, I then have to navigate back to the top of the thread to see the new image.

I'm surprised that Led Baron didn't make it into a series, Neil. Do you remember which ANS you painted it for?

What was the original image in this thread that Topps rejected?  Led Baron doesn't seem to fit.
