PRINT RUN PARAGRAPH

Release Date: 11/2004

The 'All New' Series 1 "EKEL-KIDS" Album Sticker set was published in the late fall of 2004 by Topps Europe Ltd. (Merlin Stickers) and released throughout Germany. A total of 1 print run was released during a resurrection of the 80's nostalgic GPK's in the U.S. with new releases. The German album series is comprised of 192 images from the New 1st U.S. series, the New 2nd U.S. series, and several images from the original, later GPK releases without any "a" or "b" twins. The set is an exact replica of the All New 1st U.K. Series Sticker Album Set except for the title and names are in German. The set contains 181 regular and foil stickers along with 11 poster stickers that are placed on poster taken from the album. Each paper pack contained 4 stickers and 1 foil card. The size of the stickers are larger than the earlier "Die Total Kaputtan Kids" album series release. This set contains cards almost the same size (2.5 x 3.5 in) as the U.S. release.

FUN FACTS and TIDBITS

     1. The First German Set To Contain Non-Base Cards - foil card stickers (included in the set) + 11 "chase" stickers.

2. The main Difference Between The U.K. Album Series set, The Les Crados Album Series set and The Ekel-Kids Album Series set is that the U.K. names are written in black lettering and the French and German names are written in white lettering with black shadowing behind it.

3. The #1 Card in the German Album series set is the GPK (Ekel-Kids) title on a foil card.


  4. The Series Contains "Ekel-Kids" Banners of Various Colors that matches the theme for each section of the sticker album. Colors include black, light blue, light orange, red, dark green, dark blue, pink,
dark orange, light purple, light green, brown, turquoise, dark purple, aqua, grey, and dark yellow.

5. The Set Contains many Foil Card Images From The 1st And 2nd All New Series U.S. GPK sets on non-foil cards. These images are updated versions of characters from the original GPK series'. Some are drastically changed with dark outlined borders, and others have just a small amount reworked such as the eyes, arms, etc, in order to make them as un-CPK (Cabbage Patch Kids) as possible.
Card # 79 "TOTO TOT" and # G8 "VEIT DURCHSTOB"
