2019 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids We Hate the 90’s Retail Sell Sheet

Earlier this week Topps released the Hobby/Collector sell sheet for 2019 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids We Hate the 90’s. Thanks to Wildwood Enterprises we are able to bring you the retail sell sheet. The first set of 2019 is shaping up to be almost a sequel to 2018’s We Hate the 80’s set. Just like with this month’s 2018S2 Oh the Horror-ible set, the base set will contain 200 cards, (100 new paintings in a/b versions). This is the last set that Colin Walton was the Art Director/Editor on. The majority of the set was complete prior to him leaving Topps. The formula is much the same as the previous sets. The decade of the 90’s will be parodied in a handful of subsets. Topps however, is making a few changes to the insert lineup.

In perhaps a bit of a surprise, Gravity Feed boxes are being offered by Topps for the 90’s set. After offering them initially for 2018S2 Oh the Horror-ible, Topps announced a short time later they were cancelled. The fate of Gravity Feeds for the 90’s set will rest on weather Target wants to order them. You can expect more cancellations if retailers don’t order the feeds. To hedge their bets, Topps states on the sell sheet that the Classic 90’s Insert set will appear in both Gravity feeds and regular retail display boxes, (also marketed as Hobby boxes). This way if Gravity feeds are cancelled again, the insert will still appear in retail packs. Previously the “Classic” insert sets were found in Fat Packs. Not only has the set moved pack types, but will now be 10 cards instead of 20. The set is described as, “The top ten 90’s pop culture GPKs return!” Puke (Green) parallels will return 1 per pack in all retail pack types. Fool’s Gold borders randomly inserted in all pack types are also back and limited to /50 of each. What is not mentioned on the sell sheet are the Phlegm (yellow) parallels. Previously found only in Gravity Feeds, the yellow borders rarely made a mention on past sell sheets. So it remains to be seen if Gravity Feed boxes return, and if Phlegm parallels join them. Finally as always, artist autographs, printing plates, and regular sketches can be found in all retail pack types.

While there are many questions around gravity feeds and regular retail boxes, the same can’t be said for Blaster boxes. The same exact formula is being followed as with 2018S2 Oh the Horror-ible. Once again there will be two different Blaster versions, and once again Bathroom Buddies will appear in both. Both boxes will contain 3 cards from the “lost second series of the 90’s GPK spin-off” Bathroom Buddies. The only difference in boxes appears to be one will have a $9.99 price label, and the other box without. Blaster boxes will continue to have 5 packs each, and contain 16 boxes per case. The popular Loaded Puzzle sketches will be randomly inserted into Blaster boxes once again.

Fat Packs will also follow the same formula being used for 2018S2 Oh the Horror-ible, with one change. The hanger packs are roughly twice the size of a regular retail pack. Each pack will come with two Puke parallels. The packs will also feature two cards in the new 90’s Wacky Pails insert set. The insert set is describes as, “Twenty Wacky Packages from the 90’s, now featuring classic GPK characters!” The new Jelly parallel, expected to debut in the 2018S2 Oh the Horror-ible set, will be returning once again, falling at a rate of one per pack. Finally, Panoramic Sketch Cards will also be randomly inserted into Fat Packs.

Topps Announces 2019 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids We Hate the 90’s

Time to bust out your Pogs, listen to a little grunge, all while eating a Lunchables. Topps is taking on the 90’s! Topps artists have been finished painting the finals for the next set for a few weeks now. Today today officially announced the next retail set, 2019 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids We Hate the 90’s. This set is a bit of a sequel off the popular set from earlier this year, We Hate the 80’s. This time the set will feature parodies of cartoons, toys, TV, films, video games, fashion, everything 90’s. This is the last set featuring Colin Walton as Art Director/Editor. The set was nearly complete when Colin left Topps.

Just like with the upcoming Oh the Horror-ible set, the next set will feature 200 cards, made up of 100 new pieces of artwork available in a/b versions. The set will continue the practice of being broken into various subsets. The familiar parallel format will return. All Hobby and Retail packs will contain one Puke (Green) parallel. Fool’s Gold parallels will once again be numbered /50, and are available in all pack types. Also, Bruised (Black), Spit (Blue) /99, and Bloody Nose (Red) /75 parallels will only appear in Collector packs. There are two types of insert cards mentioned on the Hobby sell sheet. 90’s Wax Pack Parodies, which will fall 1 per collector box, and also Classic 90’s Stickers. The Classic inserts in the past have been a retail Fat Pack exclusive, but it appears they might be appearing in other pack types this time around.

Artist autographs and printing plates will continue to be found in all pack types. Collector boxes are once again guaranteed one hit per box, either a shaped sketch, artist auto, printing plate, or patch card. Regular sketches can be found in retail pack types, while shaped sketches and triptych sketches are collector box exclusives. Patch cards will also be found only in collector boxes.

Once again the overall construction of the set is familiar to the other theme sets released the past few years. Once we get retail sell sheet info, I will pass it along. For now you can see the sell sheet here in PDF form, or check out the pictures below. 2019S1 GPK We Hate the 90’s is set to hit stores on Jan. 16, 2019.

2018 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Oh the Horror-ible Retail Sell Sheet

Late last week Topps officially announced the details for the next retail set by releasing the Hobby/Collector sell sheet for 2018 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Oh the Horror-ible. Thanks to Wildwood Enterprises we are able to bring you the retail sell sheet. While the configuration of the next set is similar to previous releases, Topps is making a number of changes this time. This time 200 cards make up the base set, (100 new cards in a/b versions). This is an increase over the last couple of releases. Once again, the set will be broken down into various subsets all based on horror and sci-fi themes. That’s not all the changes Topps has in store.

Retail 24 pack boxes, and Target Gravity Feed 36 pack boxes are set to return once again. Puke (Green) parallels will return 1 per pack in all retail pack types. Fool’s Gold borders randomly inserted in all pack types are also back and limited to /50 of each. Phlegm (Yellow) parallels will once again be found 1:4 packs in Target Gravity Feed boxes. Topps will debut a new Insert set called Trick or Treats. These are described as Halloween candy inspired GPKs. They will only be found in Target Gravity Feed packs. Finally, regular sized sketches, artist autographs, and printing plates will be randomly inserted in all retail pack types.

Blaster Boxes (Value Box) will return once again and be sold in two versions. However, this time around there isn’t much difference in the “EA” and “SE” versions. After exhausting all Gross Bears artwork, it looks like Topps will focus only on Bathroom Buddies. Both boxes will contains 3 “lost unpublished Series 2 artwork” from the Bathroom Buddies sets. The only difference in boxes appears to be one will have a $9.99 price label, and the other box without. Blaster boxes will continue to have 5 packs each, and contain 16 boxes per case. The popular Loaded Puzzle sketches will be randomly inserted into Blaster boxes once again.

Fat Packs also return to the retail lineup. These packs are roughly twice the size of regular pack. The “Classic” insert series returns as each Fat pack will contain 2 Classic Monster Stickers. These are reprints of past GPK monsters. Dead Ted and Nasty Nick both appear on the sell sheet. Each Fat pack also contains 2 Puke parallels. Topps will be adding a brand new parallel type called “Jelly”. No details on what those will look like yet. Those are set to fall 1 per Fat pack. Much like previous releases, Panoramic sketch cards will also be randomly inserted into Fat packs.

Topps Announces 2018 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Oh The Horror-ible

After word began to leak recently that the theme for the next set would be Horror, it was only a matter of time before Topps began to solicit for the product. Today, Topps officially announced 2018 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Oh the Horrible. The set will feature parodies of everything horror and science fiction. After last year’s successful Halloween set, Topps saw that the horror theme was something GPK fans naturally latched on to. The artists also took the theme to heart. In their excitement over 300 concepts were submitted to Topps for the set. After narrowing it down to 100, Topps is ready for what might be the most anticipated themed GPK set yet.

Topps is making a few changes this time around to the base setup. The complete set consists of 200 cards, made up of 100 new pieces of artwork available in a/b versions. This is up from the previous sets of 180 cards. Once again the set will be broken into various subsets in horror and science fiction themes. The familiar parallel format returns. All Hobby and Retail packs will contain one Puke (Green) parallel. Fool’s Gold parallels will once again be numbered /50, and are available in all pack types. Also, Bruised (Black), Spit (Blue) /99, and Bloody Nose (Red) /75 parallels will only appear in Collector packs. Collector packs will also contain an insert set called Horror Film Poster Parodies. These are Wacky Packages inspired parodies of famous horror films. Most likely these will fall one per Collector Box.

Artist autographs and printing plates will continue to be found in all pack types. Hobby and Retail packs will have regular sketches inserted. Collector boxes are once again guaranteed one hit per box, either a shaped sketch, artist auto, printing plate, or patch card. For the first time the die-cut sketches will be available both in the traditional trashcan shape, and the brand new coffin shape. Dual artist panoramic sketch cards which debuted in the 30th anniversary set are no longer mentioned on the sell sheet. Instead a new sketch type called the, “Tryptych”, will debut and be found in Collector packs. This new sketch is a three panel foldout sketch.

Once again the overall construction of the set is familiar to the other theme sets released the past few years. Once we get retail sell sheet info, I will pass it along. For now you can see the sell sheet here in PDF form, or check out the pictures below. There is also a gallery of examples of the cards for the new set. 2018S2 GPK Oh the Horror-ible is set to hit stores on Sept. 19, 2018.

Earlier this week Topps released the information for Hobby/Collector packs of 2018 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids We Hate the 80’s retail set. The setup for 2018’s first set appears to be very similar to the sets from 2017. The base set will consist of 90 new pieces of artwork available in a/b names for a 180 card set. As Topps has done the last couple of years, the set will be broken into various themed subsets, all focused on parodies from the 1980’s.

Both 24 pack Retail display boxes, and 36 pack Gravity Feed boxes are slated to return. Parallels remain the same, as one Green Puke parallel card will come with each Retail and Hobby pack. Gold parallels will be randomly inserted throughout all pack types in the set. While Yellow Pee borders should once again be found in Gravity Feed packs. All pack types will also have the chance at hitting an Artist Autograph card to a Printing Plate. Regular sized sketch cards can also be found in Retail and Hobby pack types.

Blaster Boxes (Value Box) will once again be sold in two versions. Gross Bears bonus cards can be found in the “SE Value Box”, while Bathroom Buddies ca be found in the “EA Value Box”. This will mark the fifth straight release that has featured the Gross Bears and Bathroom Buddies as Blaster Box bonus cards. Blasters will continue to be sold with five, (8) card packs in each box. Each Blaster case will contain 16 boxes. Also returning to Blaster boxes are the very popular Loaded Puzzle Sketch cards.

Fat Packs will also return to the pack lineup. These packs are more than double the size of a retail pack. Each pack contains 20 base cards, two Puke parallels, and two Classic 80’s Stickers. The Classic 80’s Stickers subset features previously released GPKs that parodied things from the 80’s in a redesign. On the sell sheet the Classic 80’s cards have a yellow background on the banner matching the sketch cards. Panoramic Sketch cards can also be found randomly inserted in Fat Packs for this release.

Once again there will be 180 base cards, consisting of 90 new pieces of artwork available in a/b names. The set will be broken up into various subsets, all themed with 80’s references. Parallels remain the same. Hobby and Retail packs will contain one green Puke parallel per pack. Gold parallels will once again be numbered /50, and are available in all pack types. Also, Bruised, Spit /99, and Bloody Nose /75 parallels will only appear in Collector packs. Collector packs will also contain an insert set called 80’s Wax Pack Parodies.

The base set will feature 90 new paintings with a/b versions for a total of 180 cards. The base set will consist of subsets for various genres of music.

Green Puke parallels will be found 1 per retail pack. Artist Autographs, Regular Sketch cards, and Printing Plates also will be available in all pack types.

The popular Blaster Boxes return once again. For the forth straight series Gross Bears and Bathroom Buddies return as the “bonus” cards in the boxes. Gross Bears will once again be inserted into SE Blaster boxes according to the sell sheet. Bathroom Buddies will appear in EA Blaster boxes. Blaster boxes will continue with five packs per box.

2017 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids Adam-Geddon Retail Sell Sheet

imageRetail info is out for the first series of next year, 2017 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids Adam-Geddon. For the most part Topps is following the same formula as they did with both 2016 sets. However, as with Hobby/Collector packs, Topps is making major changes to the number of cards in each pack. All regular retail packs found in retail boxes, gravity feeds, blasters, and blisters will now contain 8 cards per pack. Each pack will come with 7 base cards and 1 Puke parallel card. Previously, retail packs have been coming with 10 cards per pack. No word yet on the manufacture’s suggested retail price from Topps on retail packs. Pre-order prices for Hobby/Collector boxes are lower than previous series.

The rest of the retail formula stays pretty much the same. As mentioned, Puke green parallels will fall 1 per retail pack, while Gold Dust parallels numbered to /50 can be found in retail. Once again artist autographs, regular sized sketch cards, and printing plates will be randomly inserted. This matches the Hobby pack configuration for this release. For the first time since the Flashback series it appears there will be little difference in Retail and Hobby packs, (Of course pack odds could end up being the difference maker once released.)

Blaster boxes are returning, but with one other big change Topps is making. Blasters will now come with 5 packs per box, compared to the previous 4 packs per box. Once again, Topps is making two types of Blasters, SE boxes will include 3 Gross Bears reprinted cards, while the EA boxes will contain 3 Bathroom Buddies reprinted cards. The popular Loaded Artist Sketches will also be randomly be inserted in Blaster boxes.

Jumbo “Fat Packs” will also be offered at retail. Each Jumbo pack will contain 19 base cards and 3 Green Puke parallels. Also inserted will be two “Classic Adam-Geddon Stickers”. There is no mention of Panoramic Sketches on the sell sheet this time. In the 2016 sets the Panoramic Sketches were found inserted in the Jumbo packs. Blister packs previously sold at Toys r Us and Wal-Mart will also return. Each Blister will contain new versions of Adam Bomb/Boom called, “Adam Bomb’s Armageddon Stickers”.

Topps Announces 2017 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids Adam-Geddon

imageTopps today announced 2017 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids Adam-Geddon. The series is setup much like both 2016 series were. Once again there will be a 220 card base set, this time focusing on on GPKs in end of the world scenarios such as flooding, meteors, zombie attacks, etc. Topps is making one huge change for this series. The cards per pack for both Hobby and Collector packs are changing. Both pack types will now come with 8 cards per pack. This is a change from previous sets that offered 10 card for Hobby packs and 6 cards per Collector pack.

The same parallels return once again with slight changes. According to the sell sheet Puke parallels will fall in Retail packs and Hobby packs this time. Bruised parallels will fall one per Collector pack. Spit parallels numbered to 99 and Bloody Nose parallels numbered to 75 will also be found in Collector packs. Also found only in Collector boxes will be the Best of 2017 US Presidential Election cards, featuring reused artwork from the recent online sets but with new names.

In another move to apparently closely match Hobby and Retail boxes, regular sketch cards can be found in both Retail and Hobby packs this time. While Shaped Sketch , Double Artist Panoramic Sketch, and Patch cards will be found in Collector packs. It appears once again each Collector box is guaranteed one hit. Artist autographs and Printing Plates are also mentioned being included as a possible hits in Collector boxes.
