Actually, the source material is as limited as the artist's imagination. Just draw Aliens killing people and blowing stuff up. As long as you stay away from stuff in the awful movie, the possibilities are really endless.

The problem with Crystal Skull is we only had about 35 images from the movie we were to work from. We couldn't deviate much because we didn't know anything beyond what we were given.

Not to mention that Topps has done a bit since the Indy sets to tighten up quality control. While not every sketch will be a "winner", you should not have 3,000+ cards from ANYONE any more.

This set looks pretty neat. Depending on price I think I'll buy at least a box and put the set together.

Fantastic... In for a box

mma138 03-20-2012 02:32 AM

looks nice. what is the release date ?

IndySportsCards 03-20-2012 09:35 AM

The original Mars Attacks set really threw parents for a loop when they came out, in fact I think they tried to ban them. This set looks like a nice set, if not too expensive I'll probably do a box.

Sometime in July.

Did they mention anything about parallels? Being that it is Heritage you would think there would be a chrome and chrome refractor parallel of the base set.

Green border - 1:3
Silver border - 1:24
Gold border - TBD

Plus printing plates and lenticulars... I'm all over this one.

What I believe is to be a sketch card

They must have really good dentists on Mars. I don't see one cavity

mma138 03-20-2012 05:58 PM

If they got Sam Keith to do sketch cards I'd buy 50 cases of this stuff. I'm thinking that will be used for the comics.

natbornkiller 03-20-2012 07:59 PM

why does the sam keith name sound familiar ?

Yeah, that series was his breakout run.

I don't know what he's up to any more. He keeps a low profile.

I can't wait for these cards to be released; those sketches are beautiful. The Mars Attacks movie was actually one of my favorites as a child. I'm in for a few boxes!

G4RY 03-27-2012 06:42 PM

Ill be doing a limited 25 sketches for this set.

natbornkiller 03-27-2012 07:22 PM

Any idea on srp?

ZappBrannigan 03-27-2012 11:18 PM

Looks awesome, might have to try and track down a box.
