Atomic Toybox has updated their website with two new listings for Garbage Pail Kids Pins. Earlier this year as part of the virtual San Diego Comic Con they offered Outerspace Chase and Alien Ian pins. They are set to offer those pins again, this time in a Glow in the Dark version. The sale is part of a promotion for both Garbage Pail Kids and the Mars Attacks Kickstarter campaign. Sidekick Labs is currently in the process of producing a Mars Artacks set that offers a special GPK x MA mashup pack with brand new art. According to the listings the first 500 pin sales will receive a special black and white promo card from the mashup. No price is listed yet, but the pins will go on sale Oct 1. The listings say they will ship on 10/27.
Earlier this month Sidekick Labs and Adam Levine launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new Mars Attacks set. This set, licensed by Topps, is the second go around for Adam and Sidekick for the Mars Attacks brand. GPK collectors might be familiar with both creators of the set. Sidekick Labs recently was the printer for Super 7’s Universal Monsters set. While Adam worked for Topps a few years back and was involved with marketing the GPK brand and early online offers. Just yesterday, a new pack add-on option was added to the campaign for a Garbage Pail Kids/Mars Attacks mini set. The creators were given approval by Topps to use the GPK brand for the set. Artist Jason Crosby will paint the cards for the set. Jason is a long time GPK sketch card artist, this will be his first time creating final cards with the GPK brand. The six card set will be printed on retro card stock, packaged in a wax pack, and also include a mock piece of bubble gum. The pack will cost $10 and is scheduled for a March 2021 release. GPK collectors not wanting to order any additional Mars Attacks cards can pledge at the “Add-On Only” level. Just pledge $10 for each pack you want. A survey will be sent to backers once the campaign is over that will allow you to choose the GPK pack.
