so is this going to be a flop or not. the more i think about it the more im afraid the sketches are going to sell like crap and the case price is going to drop basically right after release.

I sure hope it doesn't flop as I have 5 cases coming

also its not a very good sign that the pre order price has not gone up any.

maybe its still to early to tell.

Don't bust my bubble man I preordered 3 cases. I think the sketches will sell well once they hit the market. Is it a limited product?

Might as well post this in every thread about a new set. I'm sure it'll be like every other set, some sketches will sell better than others.

Topps is really promoting the hell out of this set. I'm guessing the production will be fairly limited, which will hopefully help maintain the value. I hope you didn't buy into 5 cases hoping for it to turn into another Walking Dead. While I don't think it'll hit anywhere near those levels, you may see box prices creep up upon release since they've remained low so far.

The biggest hurdle is making this set relevant to the mass market, many of whom only know the crappy Tim Burton movie from 10 years ago. Their facebook page has over 57,000 likes, so there are fans out there.

I don't think the set will be a flop, but I wouldn't expect the price to jump at release either. There's been no indication that orders are being allocated, so I think there will be plenty of product available initially. If I remember correctly, the initial pre-sell price was $320, so it has gone up to $350, I think mostly due to the interest generated by this thread. The price is only going to go up if the initial breaks are really good (i.e., we see a lot of nice color sketches and not an overabundance of simple pencil sketches, or cases contain extra sketches due to the product being under-ordered).

Will this help? A little added content:

Topps has announced that one of the insert cards for the upcoming Mars Attacks Heritage release will be foil-stamped parallel cards signed by Len Brown, the original co-creator of Mars Attacks.
According to Topps, Brown will be signing 10 foil-stamped parallel of each of the 55 cards from the reissued base set, for a total of 550 autographs, randomly inserted into packs. Each of these parallel cards will also be hand numbered 1 through 10.

I'm curious to what the pack odds will be for one of his autos though. probably like 1:1000 packs or somewhere around there. 1:5 cases roughly. or maybe double that 1:2000 packs or 1:10 cases. I don't think the odds would be any higher than that though.

I bet they will sell for at least 100 bucks each though probably more.

Interesting... If your not interested in your cases - I would be interested in possibly taking them at cost and having them shipped to me.

Yes, noticed.

Why are you so worried? Non-Sport case prices rarely bump close to release. They don't have rookies or things of that nature to drive prices up.

If they are getting tons of preorders they know that if they raise the price a little bit that people will still preorder and you just continue that until preorders stop increasing or slow down. I guess with a new product like this though probably not enough preorders for them to be able to do that.

IMO your numbers are too high. IF autos fall 1 in 5 cases the print run would be 2750 cases ( 22000 boxes) ... a MASSIVE number for nonsports. also, consider the 1 sketch card per box would be 22000 sketch cards...not going to happen. I believe this will be a HUGE winner much like GPK Flashback 1 . Look to the INSTANT sell-out of the new comic release for the interest in this release of the most expensive and popular nonsportscard release ever.

Lol yes, you would have to crush the odds for that many plates in that few cases. I have 20 cases...I was thinking at most 2000 cases made ...very happy with only 1444 cases. Good luck to a master sketch set collector- 131 artists!!!

FWIW, the Comic Book Mars Attacks #1 that came out a few weeks ago sold out FAST and if you hung out with us comic book nerds, you'd already have known that. Seems to be quite a bit of demand for this property. Good luck with your cards!
