The Idea about keeping half the puzzle as a return is a good one. I may do that on a few in the future.

If we ever do puzzles again, the easiest solution is to simply choose one artist to do all the puzzles. With so many people doing puzzles, it becomes harder to maintain control over how many they do.

Because even though we asked for 4-card and 2-card puzzles, we still got many 3, 5, 6 and even some 8 card puzzles. No way we could pack those all together.

Alvin, just print the cards up to match the different puzzle sizes. 2-card can be 2 versions, side by side or end to end. 3- card obviously side to side and four card end to end to side or side to side to end. This way Topps can give the choice of those and only those for puzzles. Make any other puzzles verboten .

Looks like another 3 out of 4 card puzzle pulled - man that would be the ultimate letdown if the 3 cards were all in the same case

Should we create a separate thread here to help track missing pieces, etc. I just spotted 2 halves -

Sounds like a good idea. I'd be interested in matching up the other pieces to the straggler I got.

Has anyone noticed a little odd misprint within the Heritage subset?

Card number 53, 'Twisted Experiments' was printed with the copy matter, front and back, from card number 55, 'Martian Monster Men'. I don't have card 55 in the Heritage subset yet to see if it is correct or if it has the copy from card 53.

Just got my Finneral sketch in--WOW. The scans don't do the colors on these cards justice. I really recommend trying to get one if you can.

I'll scan it with the rest of my mailday later in my sketch thread.

If you buy the $15 piece from the UK I'll sell you my half for $25 direct so you get a $40 2-card puzzle.

Tell me about it!! My Finneral "SpaceRat" sketch is beautiful!! The scans just can't reproduce the colors correctly.

...thanx again Arch!...yeah, you guys are right...fluorescent/day-glo paints can't be reproduced via scans or on a computer screen(it's all in the paint pigments)...the best you can do is saturate the kolor to get a simulation...
...but nothing compares to viewing the image under an ultra-violet/blacklite bulb!

I just had to share this card on this thread. Earlier in the thread I talked about the Martians attacking Nashville, and Ted made an amazingly beautiful card. I was very fortunate to be able to buy this one so close after release. I thought I'd be searching for months or years.

Ted, you are the MAN!!!

Here is my favorite Mars Attacks sketch yet. My 6 yr old son drew this after having so much fun opening the first case. I love it!

That would be a lot of added cost. Better to just not do puzzle cards, and keep our efforts focused on high quality.
