Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set 6 Information

Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set 6 was a Chinese language set and replicated US Original Series 2.  The set consisted of 42 cards (1 of each character in the U.S. OS2 set).  It was limited to 125 sets.  Topps shut down the sales of GPKUG FS6 after approximately 90 sets were distributed.  GPKUG FS6 will be the last GPKUG Fan Set produced.  The set was designed by RusVan and Jimbo from GPKUG.  The set came with a hand numbered #/125 promo card that featured Double Heather/Fran Fran/Schizo Fran.

In 2012, as a follow-up the hugely successful GPKUG Garbage Pail Kids Persian Farsi and Dutch Fan Sets, -TCT and Jimbo from GPKUG released the GPKUG Fan Set III – a Hindi version.  -TCT and Jimbo once again collaborated on the concept and -TCT was the art director.  The Hindi Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set III (pronounced Kacara Balti Se Bacce) consisted of 20 cards.  The card fronts have bright green borders and the backs contain original artwork by -TCT.  Card #20 contains a checklist.  There were also two promo cards made for the Hindi GPK Fan set.  The back of one promo card was printed upside down so a corrected promo card was also printed.

The biggest change between the Hindi Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set and the previous sets is the fact that the Hindi Fan set was put into wax packs.  Each wax pack contained 5 cards.  Purchasers of the Hindi Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set received four packs which contained a complete 20 card set.  The original artwork created by -TCT that was used on the back of the cards was also used for the pack wrappers.

A total of 200 sets of the GPKUG Hindi Fan Set III were printed.  The previous GPKUG Fan Sets had print runs of approximately 50 sets.  The number of sets was increased for the 3rd fan set to meet demands of collectors.

Four “printing plates” were used in creating the wax wrappers.  The printing plates were made of polyester.  Two of the four printing plates were raffled off on GPKUG in late 2012.

A beautiful piece of “Final Art” was created by Dustin Graham using -TCT’s original artwork.  The art measures 11″ x 11″.  Dustin Graham uses the nickname dustin2dust at GPKUG.

Dakin “Garbage Pail Kids” Toy Spider Doorknob Cover

In 1987 Dakin Inc., toy company released a toy spider doorknob cover that seemed to be styled heavily from the Garbage Pail Kids.  The toys were black and white.  The white areas of the toy glow in the dark.  The bottom of the spider was cut so it could be slid over a doorknob.  The toys are made out of a think semi-flexible plastic.  The dimensions are approximately 5″ x 5″ x 3.5″.

The only writing on the toy is simply “(C) 1987 Dakin Inc. Made in China.”

They type of packaging the toys came in is unknown.  The only known figures are the spiders but there may be other characters as well.  The spiders have been known to be found in pairs.

There have been some people making custom Garbage Pail Kids Cheap Toys.  Some of the custom cheap toys are the exact same sculptures as the original cheap toys.  The custom toy designers have also made GPK cheap toy figures that Topps did not release in back in the 80s or created variations of characters from the 80s.

Garbage Pail Kids Final Art

The process of creating a Garbage Pail Kids card had many steps.  First the artist would come up with a concept or use somebody else’s concept and start sketching.  They would create pencil sketches and color rough art of the characters.  At some point during the process, the people at Topps would approve the character and the artist would create a final painting.  The final painting would be used to create the card image.

Below you can see the progression from GPK Pencil Sketch to Color Rough to Final Art

Tribute to a hot chick in Garbage Pail Kids auctions

In early 2011, spanning a time frame of approximately two months, eBay seller ‘nakedrabbits’ listed a large amount of Garbage Pail Kids on eBay.  At any one time there are approximately 15-18,000 listed on eBay for the search term Garbage Pail Kids. To make his auctions stand out, nakedrabbits used a hot chick to model the items he put on eBay.  In my opinion this guy was a marketing genius.  Judge for yourself…

On eBay this nakedrabbits character has his location listed as ‘Behind the Zion Curtain, United States.’   In one of his auctions he listed a piece of Garbage Pail Kids Final Art and mentioned that it was framed by ‘Well Hung Framing‘ in Utah.  I don’t know what kind of weird $hit is going on in Utah but I have no problem with it as long as this chick is involved.

Now that's what I call a fine piece of art.

I have no idea if the use of  this model helped nakedrabbits get higher prices for his auctions but what I can tell you is I’m sure he got more watchers and page views.  This OS1 Garbage Pail Kids full sheet sold for $1724.99; worth every penny in my opinion:

April 13th 2011 was a sad day for GPK collectors, nakedrabbits and America as a whole.  All of nakedrabbits eBay auctions were pulled down for violating eBay’s terms of service.  I know this because I had his auctions saved in ‘My eBay’ and I received notice when they were pulled. I would like to know who the loser was that decided to complain?

Luckily we have Google cache and I was able to locate the following pictures. Now we can save them here forever. Lest we forget nakedrabbits, a true pioneer in Garbage Pail Kids eBay marketing.

Garbage Pail Kids Cereal Box Concept

Lately Topps has been using a lot of borrowed ideas from their Wacky Packages brand on the Garbage Pail Kids.  Evidence of this would be the Wacky Packages Flashbacks that were released in 2008, 2 years before the GPK Flashbacks in 2010.  Also Wacky Package Erasers were released in 2011.  A Garbage Pail Kids Erasers set has been rumored for April 2011 but the latest news has it being released in late 2011.

For the Wacky Packages All New Series 7 release in 2010, Topps packaged some of the card in Cereal Boxes.  The Wacky Package ANS7 Cereal Boxes were packaged together in sets of 3 Cereal Boxes. Each Box contained 18 Wacky Packages Stickers and 2 “Exclusive” Stickers.  The price for the pack of 3 Cereal Boxes was $14.99.

There were rumors that Topps was going to use the Cereal Box packaging for the Garbage Pail Kids Flashback 2 release in 2011.  Topps artist Jeff Zapata even developed the below concept:

Unfortunately Topps did not release Cereal Box packaging for the GPK FB2 release.  This was disappointing to many collectors, especially after seeing the concept.

In April 2011 -TCT from GPK Underground Forum decided to advance the Jeff Zapata GPK Cereal Box Concept and produce and limited edition “Wacky Garbage” Garbage Pail Kids Cereal Box Card.  Tiny TIMMAH (also from GPKUG) printed up the cards on the same equipment used to print the Farsi Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set.  Approximately 80 Wacky Garbage cards were produced and -TCT distributed them to Garbage Pail Kids collectors at GPKUG.

Dollar Tree stores have been stocking Garbage Pail Kids Flashback 2 Packs in their card sections.  How can this be you say?  Well since every item in the Dollar Tree store only costs $1, Topps has made special 4 card packs vice the 8 card regular retail and hobby packs.  Additionally, the 4 card GPK packs sold in Dollar Tree stores appear to only contain base cards, no parallels, sketch cards, printing plates or 3d cards.

As you can see in the below images, the Dollar Tree packs do not contain ratio information for parallels, sketch cards, etc.

If you decide to head to a dollar tree in search of these lame 4 card base card packs then please be warned!  The class of people that you will find in these stores can be quite scary.  Additionally their card sections (like the rest of the stores) are unorganized and inconsistent from store to store.

It has been said that Dollar Tree also carried 4 card Garbage Pail Kids Flashback 1 packs similar to the above packs. I have been unable to confirm this. If anybody has any information please post it up!

Huge Garbage Pail Kids FAIL by Topps

Topps Fail

Topps released the Garbage Pail Kids Flashback 2 in late February 2010.  The GPK Flashback 2 release consists of mostly Original Series (OS) GPK cards reprinted with really ugly borders, a few Lost GPK cards (from the U.S. 16th Series that were never printed back in the 80s) and some Where Are They Now cards.  There is also an Adam Mania sub-set and a 3D sub-set of cards.

Apparently Topps did not spend a lot of time on quality control with the new GPK FB2 release as they had a huge mistake that should have been caught before hundreds of thousands of cards were printed and sold to collectors.

Lets start with a review… (For Topps sake)
This is the OS2 Card #79; Sewer Sue / Michelle Muck:

This is the OS2 Card #75 Off-the-Wall Paul / Zach Plaque:

Now here is what Topps printed up and sold to collectors in the GPK FB2 release:

Michelle Muck? FAIL

Michelle Muck? FAIL

Sewer Sue? Wrong!

Sewer Sue? Wrong!

Ooops!  Good job Topps!  Topps put the wrong artwork on the card.

I am pretty sure this is the individual that Topps hired to do quality control for the FB2 Release:

Likely Quality Control Associate for Topps

Contact Topps if you wish to express your dissatisfaction with their mistake!
