Collectors who like to put puzzles together will be set later this year. As first reported by GPKWorld, USAopoly is set to release two new Garbage Pail Kids puzzles based on the books by RL Stine. First up is the Thrills & Chills puzzle, based on the book releasing in May. The puzzle uses the same Joe Simko artwork that’s featured on the book’s cover. The puzzle is set to release 6/17/21, and will retail for $14.99. You can preorder the puzzle at this link. The next puzzle is the Home Gross Home puzzle. This one is based off the cover artwork from the previously released Welcome to Smellville book. There is no release date or preorder available yet for this puzzle. More info can be found at the company’s website.

According to ADCdisribution’s website, USAoploy will be coming out with a Garbage Pail Kids puzzle. Thanks as well to Clint Coleman for the heads up on this! A few weeks back USAopoly officially announced a partnership with Topps that would include a GPK branded Monopoly game. Much like with the Monopoly game, information is scarce on the upcoming release. No info on the art being used, the number of pieces, or release date was available. Suggested retail price for the puzzle is $14.99. GPKNews has reached out to USAopoly, should they respond with information this post will be updated.
Yesterday toy distributor ACD posted their pre-order for USAoploy’s upcoming Garbage Pail Kids Monopoly board game. Along with the pre-order comes a picture of the box art for the game. Artwork for the game was completed by GPK artist Joe Simko. The box features a GPK version of Monopoly mascot Uncle Pennybags, along with classic GPK characters. The description for the game says it will come with 6 game tokens:
Relive the totally awesome 80’s with the MONOPOLY®: Garbage Pail Kids game! This game has the classic sticker artwork and new custom illustrations for a new generation of fans. Comes with 6 custom tokens.
USAopoly still hasn’t officially announced their partnership with Topps, however the game was first revealed in an article last year discussing plans for GPK licensing in 2020. No other information about the game was revealed, including a release date. The game is not yet available to pre-order to collectors. GPKNews has reached out to USAopoly for additional information.
