Well folks, it's a New Year and that means an all-new installment of Wacky Packages! Details will be coming very soon, but I figured I'd take Patrick's advice and get the thread started now. Get ready for a smorgasbord of amazing Wacky stickers!!!

I'm excited and nervous at the same time! The single $15 weekly set was something I could afford.

Hopefully this next offering will be similar in price, or at least not weekly.

If they keep it weekly, I hope they skip any Week 5 sets, like they did with December.

Monthly would be better, allowing us and our wallets to breath!

This would also allow for the following: (Dave)
- Monthly themed release
- 9 Cards TOTAL (with a puzzle Back)
- Official Checklist (Card #10)
- One Sketch Card (B&W or Color)

That's It! - KISS!

Cool! I'm glad the price is the same, when you take in account the weekly sets were $15 each. What sucks is there are 4 Wonkys now to get monthly.
So me buying only one set monthly will only give me one Wonky, where before, the odds were better getting several Wonkys or GA cards when I purchased them weekly.
Title: Re: 2021 All-New Wacky Packages

The problem based on the past is there is no guarantee if you buy 4 sets that you will get all 4 Wonkys. I’m not paying $240 to get duplicates. And there’s no guarantee if you buy 5 sets you’ll get all 20 coupon backs.

Yep, the Wonkys are now going to be more expensive to complete.  I might have to give up on them, which will hurt.

I don't see anything about what will be on the backs of the base cards.  2 puzzles and 2 misc??  Plain white backs?  Would be nice to know.

I've got some serious thinking to do in the next few days.
Title: Re: 2021 All-New Wacky Packages
Post by: Baked Bears on January 13, 2021, 10:20:41 AM
I agree.  You now have to spend even way more money than before - with no guarantees of completing sets of peripheral cards, only chances.  Now, only the people with lots of money to burn will be able to complete sets.  Meanwhile, the rest of us lose.  For the life of me, I can't see why Topps can't just put out a simple, straightforward set without gimmicks.  I like the idea of new Wackys, but it's a bit difficult being enthusiastic when you're also disappointed.

They’ve certainly made the Wonkys tough again. It’s too bad there aren’t two per set. Guess one was sacrificed so they could include a checklist, so they could hold it at 28 cards.

Money?

For me, I'd like them to release a set EXACTLY like the original series. White OR tan backs, thick black borders with sharp corners, kiss cut, and have certain double prints and rarer cards. As stupid as it sounds, the cards should not have perfect centering always either. Some of us on the forum are definitely still looking for OS upgrades, and that would be fun in the new sets. Instead of stupid variations, they could make a set just like the OS that requires upgrades to get a high grade set and that would be their money maker. For those who don't care, they don't need to buy another set.

I do like the playing cards though. I will probably buy a set of those on eBay when they eventually get put on there assuming they don't cost a heart and a lung.

Post by: BattleCaps on January 13, 2021, 03:47:34 PM
I have to do a lot of thinking too.

 I'm afraid that the collation of these might end up like the Attacky Series 4 sets and we'll all be scrambling trying to trade our quadruple and quintuples of extras to try to complete one set.  I just don't know if it's worth the hassle.

  I'm thinking it might be more financially feasible to split the sets between 2 people. Get the discount by purchasing 10 sets;  each getting 5 and then purchase or trade enough to get 2 complete master sets.  Probably would end up costing a maximum of $300 for each to get a master monthly set if you're really unlucky and you wouldn't have tons of extras lying around.

13 months to complete the playing cards, if it stays 4 per set. We're all in for the long haul!

I like that they are stickers now.  Gonna miss the guest artists...not really interested in the playing cards, but it seems fun to chase for those that are into them.

Don’t know about Twitter, but there’s Facebook, and here too.

They’ve always been stickers and not cards. I read on FB the other day of someone not liking OLDS 9 because they are cards, which is odd as they are definitely stickers as well. Peel and Paste anyplace.

My impression is that the ‘Guest Artists’ are included as part of the regular set, such as Robert Jimenez did this month’s Hamburger Belcher, and are now one of the gang.

Well, I don't do facebook, so here is the best option I guess.  Lol, I thought the weekly series was cards for some reason.  Just checked with one of my duplicates and saw it was a sticker.   ;D

Hamburger Belcher looks great!  I do like the elimination of the separate Guest Artist cards and hope that Topps will simply be having all the artists contribute regularly.

I love the elimination of the Ludlows  :00123101:  They contributed nothing of value art-wise, and towards the end of 2020 it seemed that out of 10 sets I'd be getting 7 ludlows to just 3 coupons.  With this format, we know exactly what we'll be getting, and only have to worry about collation.  Still wondering what will be on the backs of the 20 base set stickers.

I do hope these don't come in the black On Demand cardboard boxes.  First off, they're hard to open (how did anyone open the sketch boxes from Attacks Packages without tearing them???), and they are wasteful.

I found if you slide a butter knife under the short end all the way in and lift, you can open without ripping. But sept for the sketch boxes, who on earth would want to save that shitty open generic box???

I bought one set and will probably not bother getting the three wonkys, two playing cards, and 16 coupons that don't come in that one pack.  It's getting too rich for my wallet.

In 1973, at 5 cents a pack for two stickers and a checklist, I probably could've gotten a complete set for $3.  At the inflation rate of 505.14%, that's only about $18.15 in today's dollars.  Can we go back to 1973?

I agree.  I was spending $120/month (2 sets each week) and that usually got me both a Wonky and a Guest Artist card.  I am not going to spend $240/month for the chance that I'll get all of the Wonkies.  That's too much of a squeeze.  So I'll buy one $60 set/month - which means Topps has lost $60/month from me.  I'm giving up on the Wonkies, like I'm giving up on the minis.  They've made it too expensive.

Someone here, I think bigtomi or Fanatical, recently mentioned only the home page is gone. You can still access the information. I got to that web page via Google by searching for "Just for Hens Wacky Packages"

Here's a little something to help you stay organized with your 2021 wackys! Keep in mind, this is not an official Topps binder release, just something I put together for fun that you can print on your home computer. The inserts are designed for a standard binder and the spine is ideally suited for a 3/4" to 1" width.

Enjoy! Neil

I'd be interested to know how many unique buyers there were - maybe 150?  I only bought one set, but I'm betting a lot of people bought multiples hoping that the collation gods gave them full sets.  I wonder if we'll get them before February goes on sale.  If so, I'm betting collation will play a heavy role in the print run for next month.

I bought 2 sets. I’ll have to settle for fewer coupons as this is too expensive for me.

I ordered one set as well.  I love these new Wackys but I considered just buying a regular set on ebay and calling it a day.  I love the Wonkys and the playing cards look great as well.  But it is frustrating to me as a collector to have to spend so much money and not even get a set.  As others have mentioned, I wish Topps would simply offer options to buy a regular set, Wonky set, playing card set, etc so that one could simply pay for what one wants.  I'll probably end up selling my playing cards knowing I'll never get the complete set and may or may not do the same with the Wonkys.  But I do look forward to enjoying the regular set of 20 as the ones I've seen so far look terrific.

I'm only buying just one $60 set monthly, considering I was spending $15 a week for last year's weekly sets. So I'm spending the same amount in a month's time. The only drawback is I was getting an extra coupon or Ludlow and GA or Wonky cards weekly on top of the 5 weekly base cards, where now it's just one Wonky per month. Not really into the playing cards. I was getting 7 cards weekly for a total of 28 cards in a month's time (in a normal 4-week month). How many cards do we get now for the monthly set?

It’s basically the same:  28 cards.
20 base + 4 unique + 4 dupe/alt backs
The bonus is no more Lud backs in the dupes! Which is huge, as those were worthless.

Looking at the contents configuration, I'd rather get 2 Wonkys and not so many coupons. I don't count the checklist card as the 28th card.

Topps would have gotten more money from me each month if I could have bought the subsets individually and I'm sure many other collectors would have as well.

Hopefully someone at Topps monitors this forum, will crunch some numbers, and consider this in future offerings.

I really like these checklists for the monthly sets, Neil!  It may seem like a small thing, but it's very well designed and feels like a throwback (if we can use that term) to the early ANS wrappers.  Oh, and don't be in a rush to use an orange colored wrapper anytime soon.  We had plenty of that towards the end of the ANS run.

Seems kind of quiet today. What can that mean?...

That Wonky reminds me of the ending of the 1952 Looney Tunes cartoon "Operation: Rabbit" starring Bugs Bunny and Wile E. Coyote ("Genius"), with the latter in his first speaking role.

In it, Wile E., sporting the "Warner well-done" look (i.e., burnt and covered in ashes) after his last attempt in the cartoon to get Bugs for supper blows up in his face (literally), staggers up to Bugs' rabbit hole, puts up a collapsible door in front of it and knocks on it. When Bugs rises up from his hole and answers the door, Wile E. (who is barely able to stand up as it is), says, in a dazed voice, "Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mud", admitting defeat. He then faints.

Bugs then breaks the fourth wall and says to the audience, "And remember - Mud spelled backwoids is Dum." (which, I just found out, is a parody of the advertising slogan for a laxative from that time called Serutan ("Serutan spelled backwards is "natures"".))

Love it, Neil! 

At the risk of being negative, I will say that I really like the Wonkys.  But I have given up collecting them as they are simply too expensive.  It bums me out to miss out on such well done cards that are excellent tributes to the Wackys of our youth, but so it goes.  Maybe if the price comes down on them, I'll pick up a couple that I really like.  But I wish Topps would simply make the set accessible to people who don't want to spend so much.

Post by: jleonard1967 on February 17, 2021, 09:52:28 PM
well if you look at it 60 dollars ends up being a decent amount of money vs 15 dollars that someone can rationalize away as a lunch.

Post by: Slaytex99 on February 22, 2021, 07:00:19 AM
I agree, even though it's the same as buying each of the weekly sets, the perceived "sticker shock" is still there for the monthly sets.

I wonder why Topps doesn't keep the sales window open for at least a couple of weeks?
Title: Re: 2021 All-New Wacky Packages
Post by: bludevilok on February 22, 2021, 10:25:56 PM
I find it odd that Topps continues to advertise this month's Wacky Packages set at the bottom of its daily emails.  I've seen it in every email since they went off sale.  Even though I bought some already, I clicked on the image to see what would happen.  It just takes you to the page that tells you that the sale is over and how many sets were sold.  Are the marketing people not paying attention to what they send out?  I can't imagine a lack of communication or attention among the Topps departments.

I'm really excited to see "Paranoid" finally published! This is one of a handful of concepts Jay Lynch started and asked me to finish for him shortly before his passing.  Definitely one of the most meaningful wacky titles I've painted and I just hope he's as happy with the finished art as I am. I've got several others in progress, so we may see more in the future. Thank you Jay for being such a cool mentor and inspiration!

The monster designs were accidentally released early. Apparently they are a fave of the artists, and were snapped up before they could be pulled back. There are others that are still being stockpiled for Halloween, so fear not! Paul Harris and I have scribbled up a bunch of St. Patty's and Easter ideas, so hopefully a few will make it into these upcoming sets. Only the Shadow knows! - Pete

Yep, that was a surprise.  I'm looking at it as a savings in packaging (and less room to store!).  They also left the Topps tape off the plastic cases, and used all shorter bubble wrap bags.

Another difference is that the coupons I got were all in five different groups:  1-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13-16, and 17-20.  The playing cards were also consistently 3 of Diamonds and 4 of Clubs, or 9 of Spades and Queen of Hearts.  My collation was quite good.

It's because Topps has a captured audience with the Wackys and they know it.  Those 500-600 will buy sets no matter what.  They don't need value-adds so all the frills get whittled down to squeeze the most profit because they don't see any reason not to.  Probably have made the decision that they're not going to increase their sales numbers too much.

Well, I see no reason to buy 2 sets now, so I'm down to just one a month. Too bad so sad.

Looks like a lot of people are still waiting for their February sets to arrive.
My order arrived at Ellenwood, GA on Wednesday, aka the hellhole of Fedex inefficiency.
I won’t receive them until next Friday, even though the ‘expected delivery’ date is today.

Looks like the Wonkys have evolved into something more like a Wacky Mash-Up, where elements of a second vintage Wacky become part of the new spoof.  I think most would agree these are even better than the Wonkys made for the weekly sets.

Why not do Wonkys mashing up any 1970's Wacky Package entries with 1985 and 1991 Wacky Packages entries?

Glad you like them! Sometimes, combining two wackys does make the idea better (but not always). Depending on the Wonky, I think some characters seem to fly better solo.

I ordered 10 sets.  The collation was good and I amassed a full set of everything in the first 7 sets.  However, one of the 7 sets was wrongly packed by a Topps employee and contained only the basic set of 20 and no Wonky, playing cards, or coupons. Given how much of a nuisance it is to complain to Topps, I don't plan to, so that set is available.  And I still have three fully unwrapped sets that I can make available for sale if anyone wants one - hopefully they include all the bonus cards (which I can check).

So, 17 sets in, and I have 3 sketches, but only one coupon set, and 3 Wonky sets.  The coupons seem to be in groups of 4 again, but not consecutive.  The playing cards are all over the place - one se had two of the same playing card.

Yellow boxes are included this time.  More to follow!

Nope, I didn't beat the odds - no sketches in the remaining 13 sets.  1:10 seems to be the insert ratio for sketches.

I ended up with:
5 sets of coupons, with a group of four to trade for a group of four.
13 sets of the playing cards, with a mish mosh to trade to complete 2 sets.
Only 4 sets of Wonkys.  Horrendous collation there!!

Funny thing about Fanga/Fanta. I originally drew it with a more Bela Lugosi-type vampire, buy my Vamp/Amp got painted at the same time (which also uses a classic vampire), so a Nosferatu-style bloodsucker was a nice way to create some variety! Thanks to Brent Engstrom for making that switch! - Pete

While I agree; however when looking back at these years from now, it will make more sense in an April set.  Topps just needs to get these printed and shipped faster so we'll have them at a relevant time now.

I considered this when I saw the Easter parodies on the April wrapper, and came to the same conclusion that April makes sense.  Just like having Halloween titles in the October set, even if we get them a few weeks later.  I guess the problem is that Easter is sometimes in March.  But, this year it was April.

Looking forward to some sweet Wackys!

Just from the wrapper title card, it looks like the major name brands of specific Easter candies are covered.  Maybe a Russell Stover egg or bunny title?  Jelly beans?

Paas was already done really well as a bonus card in ANS, but maybe there is something else to do with that.

I considered this when I saw the Easter parodies on the April wrapper, and came to the same conclusion that April makes sense.  I guess the problem is that Easter is sometimes in March.  But, this year it was April.

Since Easter can range from March 22 to April 25, there are 10 days in March and 25 in April, so if every date had an equal chance, there would be a 5/7 chance that it would fall in April.  And actually March 22nd only occurs around once every 450 years, so it's even better than 5/7 chance for April.

Damn, I hate Topps website.

Went to order the new set and had to go through a new security page to check my browser and answer captchas.

Then I had to log in and answer MORE captchas.  Then it emptied my cart.

The I went to the cart and there were double the sets.

Then I had to wrestle with it to edit the cart.  Finally deleted the cart and started over.

Walked through the slow screens to get to the payment and finish the order.

God, why such an ordeal to order some stickers???

My first attempt to order never made it to the cart, and then I had to do captcha twice as well.  The NFT is the blockchain stuff, right?  I hope they never do that with Wackys.

I'm still surprised the GPK was their first NFT, and not baseball. Those sold out in seconds. I'm sure this'll be the same.
I think you're right about the extra levels of bot denials being set up for this.

Mattel now has virtual Hot Wheels.  They have a Hot Wheels ID Free App. When you purchase a Hot Wheels ID Car, the car has a chip on the base that allows you to scan the car which puts a virtual version of it in your app. So for the most part , you have a real car and can also race it in the app. They do have a few virtual only cars that were given out at events in the form of a scannable chip only. So there is not much resale of the virtual cars; as most people collect them physically and virtually. The virtual cars look pretty cool. So the concept is spreading to other areas quickly.

Getting people ready for digital currency and introducing blockchain technology into the vernacular.  A lot of people seem to be ready for this blockchain changeover.  I mean what if the digital art asset (sticker, 3d-model, etc) could be holographic and the detail indiscernible from reality (in the future)?  Since the qty available at the time of sale is secured in the blockchain, it will be a real way to collect.  I am old so I don't get it, but a lot of people are ready to go.  We've had digital video games for a while (which I try to stay away from).

Wait until food is on the blockchain.  Then we're going to get pretty slim and trim.   :]

Have you ever had an empty bottle?  Well, it wasn't really empty because there wasn't a vacuum inside it - there was air.  So you really didn't have something intangible, you had a bottle of air.  NFT is kind of like that.  You can't really hold it (except in its container) and you can see it, but you can't really remove it from the container to examine it, so you can't truly hold it in your hand.  I don't see the appeal either.

If you look on the Spreadsheet, ANS4 was going to have card backs called Wacky DVDs before the Wacky Coupons were kept. Seven roughs of these are known to exist; one of them was Furious George.

UPDATE: The number is now 11; see below.

I drew the April Furious George because I thought the Ridiculous Reads were hilarious, and wanted to add to the library. I didn't know the idea had been suggested before. I sent in several others at the same time, including "Are you my Mugger?"- Pete's

Hey Neil, if you look at the Lost Wackys page at lostwackys.com, you'll see some you missed. They are:

*Dawn of the Dead Head,
*Fiends,
*March of the Penguin,
*The Simpletons,
*Swinefeld.

You should add these to the picture as well.

And you did the rough art for most, if not all, of these, you modest fellow, you!

Too bad Scary Poppins and Gnome Alone can't make future Wacky monthly sets thanks to Disney's C&D on Wackys after the planned but withdrawn Star Wars Wacky Packages set situation.

The Grease spoof "Gross" could be revamped as a takeoff of the 1978 Grease movie soundtrack album for a future Wacky Packages Old School series (Even if it part of a 1970's subset!).

This could possibly be all of them but there might be a couple of stragglers. If I find any more, I'll certainly post them. By the way, the idea was originally planned as a small subset (about 9 or 10 cards), separate from the coupons. I remember doing a few extras so that we had more choices.

Hi Adam!, Sorry to snatch Furious George from you. I had no idea it had been done before. With so many artists drawing so many gags over so many years, it becomes impossible not to duplicate concepts. I have definitely seen my share of ideas sent in go to someone else. Welcome to the club! Any relation to Paul Harris? You two would make a dynamic duo!

  Hi again..Hi, Roughwriter-nice to meet you..its really the only way to spoof Curious George..so you didnt take it away-ideas are crazy things..lol we did a version of Fancy Beast and someone else came up with a version that got in...i saw yours very nice-great use of color you nailed it-Paul and i are unrelated..we just happen to have the same last name and into Wackies and we did do some collaborating when we first connected thru The Wrapper- Thanks,Neil..not a problem-it was fun collaborating and very grateful to you for taking a chance on me...i REALLY MISS it!!..i have some NEW concepts that i have drawn..just sitting here in a folder-drew these a few years ago with color pencil.-made an attempt to get back in with the gang when Colin Walton was in charge..that didnt go well-(my art wasnt good enough to just be a writer,I guess)-just a very unprofessional response via email..devastated me so much..i stopped eating,lost weight,gave up the idea of doing Wackys again....lol..Paul.yes..we live on the opposites end of Mass.very frustrating but hope you are doing well..i still have that custom made Jay Lynch sketch you got for me,very nice of you..Mountain Goo-i put it in a silver frame... I check out this site from time to time..i havnet bought any new Wackies since the Old School series 6..its overwhelming all the new stuff thats out..i miss the kisscut stickers..:( but whatcha gonna do?

   Oh No! You're going to hate me, but Fancy Beast was mine, too! I enjoyed looking at your roughs. They look very similar to the stuff that was being done when Wackys first began. You are right about Topps becoming much more selective. If you ever want me to polish up a rough for you, just let me know! And if you really miss the kiss cuts, check out Jon Gregory's Brand Busters set. He even has some kiss cut plates for sale! Good talking to you!

I was also told that they are expected to ship between 4/30 and 5/5.  So, we might start getting notices today.
Well, so much for that expectation 🙄
