I remember seeing Mark Dos Santos working on his sketch at NYCC, I would like to see Topps get a lot of artists on board for this set, should be one of the most anticipated sets of 2012! Thumb Up
Hopefully the sketches would be near to Rittenhouse/Breygent quality. Thumb Up

Seems like there is a lot of bits of trading card related news today! Here's another....

ShopTopps.com has started taking pre-orders for two Mars Attacks related items...a bobble head and a vinyl figure, both made by Funko. They're pretty inexpensive and way cool for Mars Attacks fans! You can pre-order them at the link below.

I wish they'd refrained from reprinting the original yet again. The rest of it sounds cool though.

Cool! They only reprinted the set once so releasing it again may open the set to a new generation of collectors. The new art should be cool to see, and sketch cards are perfect for this set, should be one of the most sought after sets of 2012! Thumb Up

Hey Bats
I didn't mean that Topps had reissued it more than once, I meant that the set had been reissued more than once already. The first time by Renatto Galasso in '84 or so. This will make the third reissue in total.

You need to join the modern age, Batman. Then you can become a phone zombie like the rest of us. Red Face

Or you could always buy the skin/case now and buy the phone to go with it later. Roll Eyes

Too bad the cost of shipping on the Topps site is MORE than the cost of the Pop! Vinyl figure. Ridiculous.

Mars Attacks: The Broadway Musical?

Does this seem suspicious to anyone else? Or will we see cardboard crossover onto Broadway?

Given the date, I'm betting it's an April Fools prank. But I really don't know. I guess we'll know Monday if Topps/IDW do not recant.

Edit.....

Just noticed this line:

Topps and IDW are still in the casting process and "are currently seeking a seven-foot tall male lead with extensive rock vocal experience."

Definitely a prank! Big Grin Big Grin

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking. Get way to potentially get some viral publicity, though.

I have it on good authority that it is NOT an April Fool's gag
