Shipping and Availability Updates on Garbage Pail Kids Licensed Merchandise

Does it seem like you have 10 Garbage Pail Kids products on preorder? Read on for updates on when all the announced officially licensed products are expected to ship!

Pinfinity

Pinfinity offered the first products to come from the GPK x Madballs crossover that was announced earlier in the year. Three different pin sets went up for preorder a couple months back. After initially expecting the pins to ship in May, they actually begin shipping last week. Collectors started receiving pins just in the last couple of days. Individual pins are still available for purchase at their website.

Mishka

The second product to use the GPK x Madballs crossover is Mishka. A t-shirt and promo card, (to the first 300 buyers), was sold via the NTWRK app back in early May. The shirts are no longer available for sale. The company tells GPKNews they expect to start shipping later this week.

Greenlight

Greenlight Series 3 diecast cars have been out for a few weeks now. However, collectors have been waiting even longer for the GPK Mack Truck. The truck was offered for presale by 3000Toys.com back in Sept. 2020! The original expected ship date was Mar/Apr. That date slipped to May/June a couple months back. Just last week word came out that the ship date has once again slipped, now to July/Aug. Will Greenlight beat the one year mark? Collectors can still preorder the truck at 3000toys.com.
