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.

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.

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

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.

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!
