So it looks like we have 4 of the "final 10" common minis showing up at WalMart (1 per cup) and the other 6 being found in Amazon Multipacks (1 per multipack) . So to complete your regular mini set you need to purchase at least 6 cups at WalMart and probably 8 - 10 multipacks at Amazon.  So a pretty large outlay to get the 10 commons. No surprise.  I kept one of the Two Sparkle Eviltime's I found at Walmart to complete my clear chase set and sold the rest of what I found. I still like the stickers.

Interesting story: My brother is an intellectual property attorney, and he knows I'm interested in anything Wackys related. He has done searches for legal cases and decisions regarding Topps and Wackys for me. He saw the same Sonic menu and did some research on the topic. Turns out Sonic registered "Wacky Packs" as a trademark in 1998, and Topps' trademark in the name was cancelled in 2015! Topps needed to file a Declaration of Use to maintain its interest in the name, but it wasn't done. The good news is that "Wacky Packages" (as opposed to "Packs") is still completely protected! Crazy, huh? - Pete
Not crazy at all, I am absolutely certain Topps has blown it with protecting much about wackys, they don't seem to care at all that wacky packages images are used for all sorts of profitable knock off sets.

I pulled a black Alpoo from an Amazon 20 pack today! I purchased four of the 20 packs and the first one was a dud. The second one opened just like the first one (in fact it had the exact same 4 stickers) but the last one was the black Alpoo! Below are photos of the pack before opening, and then the bottom row opened.

Nice!
There have been several of these “they will never be issued” black plastic versions of Alpoo and Commie on eBay recently.
Just waiting for the black plastic Cram to show up.

Thanks, Neil! It was really nice of you to give everyone a heads up about your art going on sale! You'd normally have to scour the web in the vain hope of catching something being offered at just the right moment, and it gets very frustrating! Although I'm sure your fine paintings will soon reach bidding prices well beyond my budget, it was fun to fantasize briefly about winning them at auction.

This checks out with how you come across here.

I love to help people get Wacky!  Especially kids.  I got my friend's sons into them back with the beginning of ANS.  It lasted until they were about 14.  But, who knows, 20 or 30 years from now they might rediscover them  :P

I posted about this months ago, it just wasn't in a thread highlighting the issue.

Never saw it, but I probably never look at the majority of threads here.

Thanks for the analysis on this one.  I was sort of on the fence, too, but it's the cleanest I've ever seen it.  Eventually, it would be so cool to get crystal clean scans of all the art, and have them fully touched up to remove all the blemishes & flecked-off lettering, etc., to have some kind of online museum of the pieces in their original state.  I wonder if anyone's going to release scans as NFTs at some point.  I suppose the owners of the art would have the right to do it... but not sure how Topps would handle that, though.

No, owning the art conveys no copyright or legal rights to monetize the copyrighted work - you just own the artwork. Of course, if someone (like Topps) wanted to create NFT's out of the original artwork, and they didn't have high resolution scans, the owners of the artwork could charge them for the privilege.

Frosted Snakes reported by several but I don't know which box(es) they were in.
person on FB group seemed to indicate it was from a 5-piece cup from Target. (boo hoo on top). Need more info though.
