The Twelve Days of Setsmas - Day 5: Space Punk


there is a movie out now and it is about space and it is about armed political confict
there are spaceships and robots and lazer swords that go voom voom
it is a movie that is set after the prequels and before the actuals so it is a betweequel
there are ninja monks and paranoid droids and unhinged Forest Whitaker which is fun
there is also a lot of drama and grimdark and death death death death death and more death and a big slice o' death with a little bit of murder on the side which is not quite as fun
Peter Cushing is still the best
what the hell does this have to do with Trading Card Sets

2016 Punk Rock Paint Galactic Greats Set

This is a homebrew set created by @PunkRockPaint who is the best* and you should all go sign up for Twitter and follow him right now. It's a mash up of the Space Fights (c) tm patent pending Cinematic Universe Franchise and 1986 Fleer Logo stickers. Cosmic characters are morphed into baseball logos and Laughlin-like cartoons for your enjoyment. People born in a very specific period of time will go insane over these things while everyone else in the world is probably just bewildered. There are at least two jokes per card so make sure to look at the backs too. Mr. Paint was kind enough to include exactly 36 individual items of a papery nature in my Artist's Proof Set so it fits in 4 pages perfectly.

The set is only half the fun, the packaging is even better! I didn't take a picture of it so you'll have to take my word for it. Wait, there might be a picture in his e-shop....
Go take a look and if you like it go buy his stuff!

 Tomorrow: No idea! Maybe nothing!

*not as best as Peter Cushing but who the hell is

Some of these had me laughing out loud. I think "Amphibious Natives" is my favorite.

Amphibious Natives is one of my favorites too! (But "Podrace" is by far the best!!!)

- Definitely NOT PunkRockPaint (maybe...)

Thank you for sharing these. As a fan of both SW and 80's Fleer stickers... I immediately went over to PRP's site and picked up a set.
