PRINT RUN PARAGRAPH

Release Date: FALL 2008

The "All New" Series 1 Kakkones, the first disgusting GPK 'card game', was released in the late summer or early fall of 2008 by Topps Europe Ltd. (Merlin Collections), and made in Italy. A total of 1 print run was released during a resurrection of the 80's nostalgic GPK's in the U.S. with all-new releases. The Italy Kakkones series is comprised of 96 images from the older, original GPK sets and from the all-new series sets, without any "a" or "b" twins. Including 10 "Animate" cards, which are two-image Motion cards. Each paper pack contains 4 game cards, an opportunity for a Animate card, and folded 'card game' instructions. The set contains cards the same size (2.5 x 3.5 in) as the Sgorbions releases from the early 1990's. A second "All New" Series 2 Kakkones has also been released.

FUN FACTS and TIDBITS

1. The 96 Game Card base Set is set up into 'gross' categories with the 10 Animate, or motion cards, are 'specialty' game cards. The character image on the card front matches the theme of the game card on back, although some stray drastically from this rule-of-thumb. Categories: Injury (red circle with crossed bandaids, cards 1 - 22); Vomit (mustard yellow circle with vomit splatter, cards 23 - 40), Mucus (yellow circle with green snot patch, cards 41 - 58), Acne/Zits (purple cirle with a pimple postule, cards 59 - 74), and Fecal (brown circle with toilet bowl image, cards 75 - 95).


2. The First Italy GPK Set To Contain Non-Base Set Cards - ten m
otion cards, numbering from A-I and L. Three of the ten motion cards are the same number and character found in the 10-card foil set for the U.K. ANS1 card set; numbers 1 (A), 7 (G) and 10 (L). Only U.S. ANS1 foil card characters were chosen for the Kakkones set. Even though the Italy animate cards have 2 panels only, they are more clear and opperational than the ANS7 motion cards.

3. The set has a great Gross-Green B order that goes well with the ANS1 U.S. and international themes. This is very reminiscent of Italy's earlier GPK releases called the Sgorbions where the sets after the 1st release contained coloured borders.

4. U.S. ANS1 and ANS2 Foil Sticker Images are used within the Italy ANS1 set, and like many of the international sets, which portrays the cards on regular card stock rather than foil card stock.

5. The Series Contains Five of the six "Scratch 'n Stink" Chase Cards From The All-New 2nd U.S. Series set placed within the Kakkones series as regular cards without the scratch and stink affect. The only SnS character not pictured within the set is S2a Cheese LUIS and S2b Eruptin' ERIC.

6. The Set Contains Both of the U.S. All-New Series 2 Bonus Cards found within the game card base set. The images for both B1 On Camera CAMERON and B2 Paintball PAUL.


7. The 96 game card set is basically TwiceThe Size of the U.K. ANS1 card set of 48 images, the base set has been doubled with same number of 10 chase cards added.

8. Since the Set Contains No Stickers and is completely card-based, the set has no 'PEEL HERE' arrows. And much like album-based sticker sets, the card number shows up on the back of the game card, rather than the front, which usually occurs for most internatiaonl GPK stickers sets that are 'pasted' into albums... this leaves the front of the card looking very 'clean'.


9
. The Set Contains No Checklist, the back of the card album acts as the checklist for the game card set. As a first, the album contains only images and numbers/letters for the characters, the names on the images are too small to read. This is very similar to the U.S. and Canadian sticker album backs made by the Imperial Toy Corporation that more or less showcased uncut sheets.


10.
The packs contain Foil Wrappers, much like the U.S. releases, rather than the paper-based wrappers of the recent International releases. See wrapper images above within the "Series Overview" section.

11. The set contains No Puzzles.
