The iconic GPK mascot, ADAM Bomb (item # 5581), received
a well deserved super-sized FUNKO POP! vinyl figure model measuring 10 inches
in height and is a wonder to behold. Blasted BILLY is definitely not 'too
big for his britches' (or 'boots' in the UK), living up quite nicely to his
popularity ranking. The 'Imperial' blue box itself, which includes a new red
GPK acronym trademark, makes a great display case for the figure and includes
the 30th anniversary artwork by Joe Simko on the side. Big Bad Toystore gave
the following product description: "Our Adam Bomb 10 figure
is the true centerpiece to our Garbage Pail Kids homage! The figure utilizes
high quality material and clean design to portray the iconic foulness of Adam
Bombs character!" [SRP $29.99]
GPK VINYL (REALLY BIG) MYSTERY? MINIS FIGURES
FUNKO also produced an assortment of 12 different GPK characters (item # 5538), ranging in size between 3 to 5 inches in height, covering several different Original Series sets including (L-R, T-B): Acne AMY (OS2), Bony TONY (OS4), Nasty NICK (OS1), NAT Nerd (OS5), ADAM Bomb (OS1; a smaller version compared to the 10" figure available), Tee-Vee STEVIE (OS1), New Wave DAVE (OS1), ALI Gator (OS3), Hot SCOTT (OS2), Savage STUART (OS1), JAY Decay (OS1) and Leaky LINDSAY (OS2) ... all with amazing detail and the quality of product you would expect from FUNKO. The figures come sealed within OS1 pink-colored boxes with a new, blue GPK acronym trademark. Several online stores had the following product description: "Keeping these GPK a Mystery is a must But these are not so Mini! They are 3-5 of disgustingly adorable, sickeningly sweet, vinyl like youve never seen." and "They trashed the '80s and 30 years later, they're here for you to collect. Each one of the 12 available Garbage Pail Kids figures is 3-3/4" of disgustingly adorable, sickeningly sweet vinyl like you've never seen. Classics like Acne Amy, Ghastly Ashley, Leaky Lindsay, and Bony Tony have never been so vivid! Each figure has a 1:12 rarity! Blind mystery box packaging." [SRP 9.99ea.]
GPK VINYL (REALLY BIG) MYSTERY? MINIS FIGURES CASE
All 12 characters could be purchased together in a case box which guaranteed one of each character of the set, which is a nice alternative if collecging all of the characters and dealing with mystery and blind boxes. The characters, once again, include Acne AMY (OS2), Bony TONY (OS4), Nasty NICK (OS1), NAT Nerd (OS5), ADAM Bomb (OS1; a smaller version compared to the 10" figure available), Tee-Vee STEVIE (OS1), New Wave DAVE (OS1), ALI Gator (OS3), Hot SCOTT (OS2), Savage STUART (OS1), JAY Decay (OS1) and Leaky LINDSAY (OS2). The figures come sealed within OS1 pink-colored boxes with a new, blue GPK acronym trademark and the box itself creates a wonderful store counter display case with the iconic exploding ADAM Bomb GPK character.
