Update: More info from Creepy Co. on the morning of their next GPK launch. The picture posted today sheds some more light into what’s in that OS 3 box, literally. It appears the desk light they showed yesterday is part of the box. The light will come with 4 interchangeable character covers. In addition to Adam Bomb, today’s picture shows Joe Blow, Mad Mike, and Hot Scott. They also said the box will contain a poster. No word yet on pricing. Be sure to checkout Creepy’s website tonight at 7:00 PM Central to light up your world.
Update: Creepy posted another image on their social media channels for what appears to be an Adam Bomb desk lamp. The lamp along with the Series 3 collectors box will be available tomorrow via their website.
After just releasing three new GPK shirts earlier this month, Creepy Co. is keeping the new GPK merchandise flowing. This morning via their social media channels they shared an image of a new OS 3 box collection. Previous boxes of OS 1 & 2 contained enemal pins. This time however the company says there will be different items in the box. No other details were released. It appears the launch will be this Thursday, most likely at 7:00 PM Central time. I’ll update this post as more info is released.
For weeks now GPK collectors have been eagerly awaiting shipment of the GPK Meme On Demand set. Topps offered this online exclusive set back in September. The set quickly sold out of all 500 copies available. However, collectors have begun to get restless as almost two months have passed with no shipping notice from Topps. Today Topps sent out an email to collectors that ordered the set stating there was a problem with the production of the set. They email says shipping should be expected within two weeks. Within the email is says, “there is a delay on the balance of orders shipping.” What is not known is if that means some collectors will get their orders weeks before others. Collectors will hopefully have these in hand in time for Christmas.
Update: Creepy revealed the 3rd new shirt they will have available later today. Richie Retch gets added to the roster. The shirts should go live this evening at 7:00 PM Central time.
Update: This morning Creepy Co. posted they will have three new shirts available this Wednesday, including a blue OS 2 wrapper shirt.
Creepy Co. is at it again. On Friday they announced via their various social media channels there is a mini-GPK launch coming this week. The picture associated with the posts features Alien Ian. The only other hints are hashtags for #GPKminirelease, #alienian, and #marsattacks. Their GPK-mini releases usually feature only 1-2 products, usually a t-shirt with some restocks. There is no release date mentioned. Typically Creepy releases merchandise on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM Central time. I will update this post throughout the week as more info becomes available.
Thank to GPK collector Luke Parks for being the first to post images and let the community know that Dollar Store packs/boxes are now out for 2018 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Oh the Horror-ible. These no-frills packs are a tradition every release. These are only made for Dollar Tree stores. Each pack comes with 4 base cards, with a SRP of $1.00. There are no “hits” in these packs, no parallels, no inserts, etc. Collectors buying these like having an unopened pack/wrapper for their collection. The boxes are also sought after for collectors wanting empty boxes. They resemble the old gravity feed boxes, just a little smaller. Collectors were not sure if Topps was going to continue to produce the Dollar Store packs, since the Target Gravity Feed boxes were cancelled beginning with this release. However, it appears the tradition will continue. Be sure to hit up your local Dollar Tree for some base card love.
There is a new high end licensed Adam Bomb statue in the works, and it’s huge! The figure is still in the planning stages, and the developers are looking for feedback from the Garbage Pail Kids community on a number of topics. The figure is being developed by Hobby DB with assistance from GeePeeKay.com. Hobby DB is newer in the GPK scene. Their website is focused on chronicling all types of collectibles. Matt Oldweiler, owner of GeePeeKay.com, is part of Hobby DB’s Advisory Council for GPKs. (Full disclosure, GPKNews.com has a working relationship with GeePeeKay.com, but has not been involved with this project.) Together they have been working for months with manufacture Power Up Factory on this first of its kind entry in the GPK marketplace.
The figure is officially licensed by Topps, and Topps has already approved the design. The developers are aiming for a high end extremely detailed figure. Their goal is to remain true to the original art on the Adam Bomb card. The figure stands a mighty 14″ tall, and is on a weighted base with an embossed nameplate. The figure also has LED lights inside the mushroom cloud to make it shine bright. The figure is made from hard molded resin. Both a blue jacket Adam Bomb, and red jacket Blasted Billy are being considered for production. The figure will also come with an exclusive Adam Bomb card featuring the original rough art from John Pound.
So how do you get one? Not so fast….This is where you the GPK collector can have some actual input on the product. With this being a very high end detailed collectible, the developers are looking for feedback from collectors on a number of topics. In the survey there are questions on what’s important to you in a high end statue, a number of questions on pricing, and finally questions gaging your interest. Final production in part will be based on results of this survey, so let your voice be heard. Head over to GeePeeKay.com’s Facebook page now to take the survey.
