In early 2019 collectors randomly discovered a Garbage Pail Kids poster in the racks at a Walmart store. After some investigating it turns out the poster was made by TRENDS INTERNATIONAL, and they in-fact had a handful of fun GPK in development!
As mentioned above, the first item to be spotted in the wild was a Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids wall poster. The poster contained images of OS1 GPK characters without the namebars and banner. Eventually a Series 2 poster was released leaving many wondering if there will be more?
The posters measure 22.375" x 34" and were available both in stores and online (Amazon, etc.). Below are images of the two versions available to collect
Trends International did nothing to advertise their new GPK merchandise (and of course Topps didn't help out), so it was a pleasant surprise to discover fun little packs of stickers available at numerous stores and online retailers.
There were three different versions of sticker packs (note: at the time of this writing only TWO have been discovered). Each pack contained small 1" stickers depicting popular Original Series characters with either a white or shiny background
As mentioned above, there is one version of the sticker packs that has yet to surface. Referred to on the TI site as ' Pop Up Stickers - 2 Sheet' the stickers apparently have a 3D effect!
All-in-all this is a fun series of products from a fairly obscure company. It is refreshing to have items not only easy to obtain, but also affordably priced. The items from Trends International cost between $2 and $15 making them a welcome addition to any GPK collection!
