Default 3 boxes of MARS ATTACKS!

The shop just got it in; had a blast opening it! Some are available, so let me know if you are interested in something. Keeping a few things.

(Inserts, etc.)
- 6 golds
- a bunch of heritage

- extra gore SP


- Munchkin card


- graffiti parallel (something like 1 per 196). I tilted it so you can see it better.


- medallion


- AUTOS
Frank Welker (ack! ack!)


Ed Repka (HUGE PC pull with this one as he does the art for Megadeth albums )


- Sketches
(Jason Crosby)


(Jeremy Scott)


(another Jason Crosby)


Then I noticed something... Two Jason Crosby's.....
BOOM! Yup, two puzzle pieces in consecutive boxes

Howdy! Jason Crosby here. Glad you found 2 parts of the 4-card puzzle. I enjoyed drawing that one.

I THOUGHT all 4-card puzzles were supposed to be in the same pack/box, but....

Congrats on the fun break!!!

Very cool, but that will suck if some of the puzzles weren't kept together.

Thanks for posting the graffiti parallel. I was wondering what the heck I was supposed to be looking for

Hi there! LOVE the cards! Going to try to complete this one. They weren't in the same box but definitely the same case. It's possible the other two are still at the shop!

You're right. If you're pulling from the same case, the other 2 cards could be there.

Here's a reference pic for ya:

As I said on another thread, we ended up with over 75 (it may have even been 100+) 4-card puzzles when all we wanted was 50. I was told at first we'd put them all in together, but before we packed out it became clear that if we did so, we'd be missing a lot of sketches, so we split up a handful of puzzles.

Not many, though, and we tried to choose ones that wouldn't be terrible to pull a single from.

Awesome! I saw that on your web page earlier. Very impressive work! The colors really pop in person I'm hoping to see them pop up on ebay this week during the first week rush.

I love this puzzle, but whoever pulls the hand from the lower left is going to be confused as hell! lol

I'll keep this updated if I can land one or both of the remaining pieces! Would be the first 4 card puzzle completed for me. I've done several two-card ones, but four will be tough.

I always draw my puzzles so they can be singles.

Ty, Have you ever thought about putting up a sign in your shop featuring the three pieces of the puzzle with the text "Missing piece wanted"? Surely the person who bought the box containing the puzzle is a repeat customer and would see it.

The guy at the shop did it for me. Also posted it on their website. We'll see. Who knows, might not even be in that case. The whole thing is really weird.
