GPK FROM NEW ZEALAND
New Zealand released a series of Garbage Pail Kids under the alternate THE GARBAGE GANG banner. These sets shared similarities with the US releases, with a few small changes
New Zeleand released their own version of Garbage Pail Kids under The Garbage Gang banner.
Produced by Regina Co, the New Zealand releases are 'small' in size - similar to the UK Series 1 release - measuring 2.1" x 3".
Regina offered a series of card collectors albums via a mail-in offer on their Series 2 wrappers. There were 3 albums to collect
The GPK releases from Australia are extremely similar to New Zealand, but one easy way to tell the difference is the banners: AUS cards have the straight banner, and NZ cards feature the arched banner
