How do you know this? I have seen no details about the contest that will be held after Comic Con so how do you know promos will be involved? Often patience is actually a virtue! Wink

Since we are on the verge of the release date, here are my artist proofs:

An homage to Mars Attacks #36, "Destroying A Dog", my good friend Kate Bradley did this replacing the dog with herself and putting her dog "R2" in place of the boy:


Another homage, this time to card #51, "Crushing The Martians":


The final card, an original concept worthy of Mars Attacks!:


Let the invasion begin! Big Grin

Good stuff from Kate, like usual. Congrats on those! I'm definitely hoping for some "Red" in my packs.

The post on Face Book states that there will be a contest involving promos for people attending SDCC, and another contest after SDCC for everyone else, so you will have a chance after SDCC. Smile

I am picking up my case in about an hour. It seems that most distributors did not receive their inventory until Monday, which would make it hard to have it out to everyone by Wednesday. So delays will likely be a day or two.

I wonder how long before it appears in the U.K.?

Is the Topps site the only place to order binders from? I tried putting my details in but it would not accept my county (state) on the site so it may not be available to purchase from the U.K.??????

My U.K. case Supplier has stated he was unable to obtain Binders from Topps. I've tried getting some off the Topps site but just get an email thanking me for interest and someone will contact me!!!!!!

Why don't Topps just say Thanks but no Thanks U.K. buyers? Frown

It's not JUST the UK. Topps does not offer the binders to ANY dealer. They are a direct from Topps only item. Shame really, I could have sold many many binders for Topps sets through the year.

I don't understand why, if you are going to make them anyway, they don't offer them to dealers. Surely the cost per unit would go down if they made more.

Is anyone from Topps going to answer my query about U.K. collectors/dealers buying the binders for this release?

Checked the bay, no Binders there! Do They exist?

Heard from a U.S. dealer that the release of the Binders has been put back to week of July 23rd. This is unconfirmed as Topps appear to be in hibernation at this time.
