Looking forward to it!

100 base cards...flip side puzzles... stickers...

Most importantly (for me), something different for Star Wars cards!

I worked as a concept artist as well as did some Inserts for this set. It's going to be a fun set.

Did this have sketches as the others Wacky Packages product? I think if it does it will be the same odds one sketch per box.

Just heard from a distributor that Topps has cancelled this release. No details were provided.

It sounded like pre-orders were not good.

I quizzed the Wacky customers in Philly, NONE said they planned on buying this. Pretty much the same with Star Wars customers too.

It would make a good chase set in a set, about 12 gags and call it done. No way a whole set could stay fresh and funny on a single subject.

Can I throw in my .02?

When I heard about this set, I thought it was gonna be awesome! Wackys parodying Star Wars - how fun is that gonna be!

THEN I read (correct me if I'm wrong) that they were making up products then parodying the made up product! What the kalamazoo is that all about?

Big stinker!

Make fun of Star Wars directly - or would Disney sue Topps out of existence?

And that, my fellow collectors, is my .02 on this topic!
