As Topps released yesterday, they have a lot in store for this weekend’s New York Comic Con. There are a number of Garbage Pail Kids giveaways and special guests planned for the event. Specific details have started coming out, collectors attending the event now have a good idea what times they need to be at Topps’ booth (#2557) to claim everything.
A brand new expansion set for Oh the Horror-ible will be on sale at the Topps booth during the show. The 10 card set features new artwork based on the popular horror theme. The set will also be available online later in the week on Topps.com. Collectors who purchase the set in person at NYCC will also receive two bonus cards, Buff Bill and Silenced Silas. Pricing for the set has not been revealed as of yet.
Topps will also have a number of free cards at the show. GPK artist Joe Simko will be at the Topps booth, Friday 10/8 and Saturday 10/9 at 12:00 PM, signing 6” x 9” movie poster cards featuring artwork based on the Fury Load animated shorts. Collectors also will have the chance to enter a contest each day of the show to win a large scale version of the movie poster. They also can be the first to see part 3 of Fury Load at Topps’ booth Saturday at 12:00. Collectors not at the show will have to wait until Monday’s release of the video on Topps’ Yourube channel. Also making an appearance the same time as Simko’s booth appearances will be none other than Adam Bomb! Kids and adults alike can take pictures with the GPK icon.
Artist David Gross will be at Topps booth Saturday 10/9 at 2:30 PM signing a reconfigured Food Fight card, Max Wax. He will also be at the 4 Real Breaks booth at 3:30 PM busting GPK packs and doing a short Q & A session.
Topps will also be promoting the upcoming GPK Goes on Vacation with a special Lydia Liberty card. The first 250 collectors to participate in Topps Interactives at their booth on Saturday 10/9 will receive a copy of the card. Topps is also planning giveaways for t-shits, Tom Bunk autos, and more.
