GPK SET REVIEW : VOLUME 27 - NO. 1, FEBRUARY - MARCH 2016 ISSUE










'CLICK' PIC TO VIEW











1
. The Card Numbering is not sequential with the previous release, nor does it start back and #1 really, it's the second stand-alone release whose base set contains subsets that all start at #1. The packs remain at 10 cards per pack (previously known as 'Mega' packs), at a higher SRP; whereas BNS1 had 8 cards per pack. The exception are the Hobby Collector Edition packs which contain 6 cards per pack due to the exclusive premium content.

2. Minus artist John Pound's original series artwork that defaces the front and top of the hobby and retail boxes with ADAM Bomb and Snooty SAM the only new Box Artwork is by Brent Engstrom of the character for cards 11a ANDY Apple and 11b PATON Pie of the As American As Apple Pie subset. The piece was automatically being considered and noted as box artwork from the beginning; especially since it ties in with the set title -- the knife was requested by Topps to be added to the final artwork. The extended arm and hand artwork you see displayed on the Hobby Collector box inlay was added later by the Topps 'packaging department' and photoshopped (using pieces from other paintings).


3. The 'American Swept Under the Rug' subset contains the colourful card character 9a HUGH Hoarder and 9b COLIN Collector painted by artist Brent Engstrom and concept by David Gross -- where Collecting Garbage is known as hoarding, with a negative connotation, unless your a collector that hoards Garbage Pail Kids. This collecting Kid outshines the OS6 character 248a HECTOR Collector and 248b G.P. KAY by a long shot. Although, like many previous cards that contain GPK stickers/cards within the artwork these characters are unidentifiable ... however, there are many known objects in the painting. Studying the card artwork, one can identify the character holding either the 8a ADAM Bomb or 8b Blasted BILLY card with one hand and a 2014S2 Hobby Collectors box (that contains two of Engstrom's Kid images), no less than six Garbage Pail Kids FUNKO toys can be found dispersed around the artwork. The shelf not only holds four of the six FUNKO figures but also an original 1st, 2nd and 3rd series unopend box and the set of GPK Cheap Toys in flesh colour (the sketch contains 10 figures whereas the final artwork contains 11 figurines). The back wall showcases the framed artwork of Brent's BNS3 Kid 131a Hoodie HARLAN and 131b Inside Out OSCAR (owned by collector Cory Pierce) as well as the OS3 image Snooty SAM on poster.


4. The artists were asked (if possible, but not always) to contribute GPK names along with their concepts to assist the editor in the Naming Process for this release; although duplicate first names have been located in the same set previously, the naming is quite interesting for this release; there doesn't appear to be as much quality control. It's interesting to point out that
althought the concepts for the American Inventor character for cards 8a Lanced LEO and 8b Cotton BOB and cards 9a Loud LEO and 9b Atomic BOB were handed in at separte times, a week or so apart with name suggestions -- two sets of same first names used for cards side-by-side in a set.

5. The Character Artwork for cards 19a SPENCER of '76 and 19b Yankee Doodle RANDY within the 'As American As Apple Pie' subset was painted by artist Tom Bunk and is
a parody of Archibald M. Willard's painting The Spirit of '76 (originally titled Yankee Doodle '76). This character feels like an overflow piece from the 30th Anniversay's 'Artistic Influence' subset based off of original artist paintings.


6. The first release to contain No Checklist of any sort. Over the last few years, the franchise has seen a loss of many GPK characteristics. Including, no puzzle preview cards to no puzzles entirely. No sticker die-cuts so no nostalgic PEEL HERE arrow as well. No card back artwork, et cetera.

7. There are mainly returning insert Chase Cards for the Applie Pie set with few all-new Chase cards except for the parallels that have a new border pattern. The harder-to-complete Chase card sets from the Hobby and Collector boxes include: 10 Patch cards, Artist Relic cards, 8 Horror cards, 8 Comic Cover cards and a plethera of Splatter Parallel cards (bruised and boody nose being Hobby Collector box exclusives). No Sepia or Character Card chase cards for this release.


8. Two characters can be found with Artists 'Signatures' on their cards; The 'Ping' for aritist Mark Pingitore in the 4a Creamed KEITH and 4b Scrim MITCH (scrimage) within the 'America's Pastimes' subset on the football player's jersey -- the garbage pail helmet emblem is a nice added touch. It is interesting to note that Pingitore got in two OS3 Punchy PERRY concepts into the new release (the other falling in the 'U.S. Summer Olym-Picks subset). The "3" and four dashes, found on the card of OS1 character 30a New Wave DAVE and 30b Graffiti PETEY (along with 'smut'), was placed on the original concept by David Gross for the 25a SKIP Skater and 25b Hurt BURT character within the 'As American As Apple Pie' subset on the wall of the stairs. Artist Brent Engstrom added only three dashes so the "3" and dashes resembled his initials (B.rent E.ngstrom) ... he also placed 'AC' and three dashes for his wife's name, but it's mainly covered by the GPK nameplate.


9. The first release to contain a Speech Bubble to "help" with the gag, for American Icon cards 1a TED Ache and 4b Wrecked ROOSEVELT. This set contains so many signs, handheld signs, pricetags, window displays, et cetera; if it doesn't work as a stand-alone joke, the concept needs to be changed.

10. The first release to contain 2 Different Characters on card with separate names -- on card previously, with more than one character, a single character is usually singled out for naming. The OS1 character 31a Wrinkly RANDY and new character 31b Har LEE within the 'As Americana As Apple Pie' subset.


11. The character for cards 1a ALI Gator and 1b High Dive CLIVE painted by Mark Pingitore within the 'U.S. Summer Olym-Picks' shows the aligator with a human head on the food bib; this is the same head that is found on the character's t-shirt in the OS3 set. It's a parody of the Alligator Emblem for Izod clothing.

12. After production of the final artwork, if the artist asked Topps for a mock-up card image of their work they were sent a 'proofing file' that contained the Splatter parallel border template. The Purple Border is not one of the actual parallel colors printed for the Apple Pie (In Your Face!) set, but only shows the border color placement. A few pictures hit the Webs and collectors were concerned this was another planned parallel (like the 30th Anniversary set's Wal*Mart blue border exclusive).


13. Due to the sheer size of recent GPK sets several first names are used repeatidly, adnauseam. Although there are several examples, I will list the cards that include the first name 'Bill' and it's extensions, like 'Billy', but won't list any derivatives, such as 'William'. The name 'Bill' can be found no less than 10 times for card names: Swept Under the Rug 6b Bunker BILL, American Icon 5a bold BILLY, American As Apple Pie cards 3a BILL Grill, 13b U.S. BILL Ding, 18b BILL Rider and 21b Golden BILL, for the Classic Patriot card Dollar BILL, the Comic Book card 4b Blasted BILLY V, the ADAM Bomb card 1b Blasted BILLY VI and for the ADAM Boom card 1b Blasted BILLY VII.

14. To help poke fun at the Presidential candidates in GPK format, the Topps Company further licensed its popular parody franchise to the Funko vinyl figure company. The two figures, to be released in June of 2016, are modeled after two of the 2016S1 New Hampshire primary characters sold exclusively online. Item # 10507, DONALD Dumpty, was modeled after card 1a of 9 painted by artists Joe Simko and item # 10508, Billary HILLARY, was modeled after card 8a of 9 painted by artists Brent Engstrom.



15. The twenty-forth series to contain cards with The GPK Acronym (or initialism) found within the artwork or the entire GPK title ... U.S. Historical Event card 4a Death NELL and 4b LIBBY Bell on the bell, American Swept Under the Rug card 7a PATTY Pageant and 7b BEA U.T. Contest on the sash, American Swept Under the Rug card 9a HUGH Hoarder and 9b COLIN Collector on the GPK poster, American Devolved card 4a Hum EARL and 4b S. HUGH Vee on the truck, As American As Apple Pie cards 27a Carni- VAL and 27b Whack JACK on the machine, As America As Apple Pie card 31a Wrinkly RANDY and 31b Har LEE on the motorcycle and As America As Apple Pie cards 32a Broadway JAY and 32b Music CAL on the sign. Americana Swept Under the Rug card 5a GARY Gang and 5b CARL Crew contains a 'Garbage Pail Gang' logo, resembling the old 'Garbage Gang'™.









(CLICK IMAGE TO VIEW CARD SAMPLES)

The 2016S1 / American as Apple Pie in Your Face set is the twelfth GPK set to contain Sketch Cards numbering 1/1 (one-of-a-kind) found within hobby boxes or retail boxes. Several GPK artists worked on the Sketch cards for this release; Standard sketch cards (retail exclusive), Die-cut sketch cards (hobby and hobby collector edition exclusive), 'folded' Panoramic sketch cards (including Dual artists sketch cards -- a first for any release; both found in 'jumbo' retail packs) and Loaded sketch cards (4 Standard sketch cards found in 'value' boxes). Artists providing sketch card artwork for this release: Neil Camera, Mark Pingitore, Jeff Zapata, Layron DeJarnette, Dustin Graham, Chenduz, Steve Potter, Dan B.W., Lily Z Mercado, Jon Gregory, Dabila (GPK Dave), Simone Arena, John Monserrat, Denis St. John and newcomers Michael Barnard, Sean Norvet, Chad Scheres, Robert Jimenez, Cecilia Granata and Chris Meeks. Besides the sketch cards located within the boxes, the artists were given ten blank sketch card 'Returns' from the Topps company, and once approved, could be kept, sold or auctioned -- these sketch cards are often more highly detailed and go for a higher price.







1. The major mascot character for the series, created by Veteran GPK Artist John Pound, was painted for the original 3rd Series set for cards 110a Snooty SAM and 110b U.S. ARNIE; A classic parody of the iconic 1917 U.S. Army recruitment image "Uncle Sam" (initials U.S.) painted by J.M. Flagg, picking his nose rather than pointing to the general public. Flagg's art, in turn, was based off of the 1914 British "Lord Kitchener Wants You" advertisement poster. The image can also be located within the 2011 Flashback Series 3 set as cards 15a and 15b, within the GPK Poster set as poster #17 Garbage Pail Kids Want You and in this set within the Classic Patriot Stickers subset as cards 1a of 9, 1b of 9 and Patch Card 1 of 10.




2.
An Art-Process Study: GPK artist Brent Engstrom contributed more than 45 paintings and 60 concepts to the American As Apple Pie (in Your Face!) Garbage Pail Kids set, including 4 images from the previous Fright Rags t-shirt release and 2 images from the IDW comic release. Engstrom starts his work with a digital B&W sketch which is then placed within a GPK template as a color rough that displays the GPK header, nameplate and the retired 'PEEL HERE' arrow and sticker die-cut; thus giving a size comparison. The final artwork is manually produced and turned into Topps. Shown below is this process from start to finish for Engstrom's parody of the famous Times Square photo V-J Day in Times Square (by Alfred Eisenstaedt on August 14, 1945 in New York City) for U.S. Historical Event Stickers 7a of 9 Evil EDDIE and 7b of 9 Navy NICK; the character is going in for the kiss-of-death instead of mouth-to-mouth. The background was suggested and added after concept approved. The final artwork and the Topps mock-up card are also pictured.



3. Veteran GPK Artist Tom Bunk is back for two new Apple Pie (In Your Face!) patriotic images for which the color roughs are displayed below; a parody of Archibald M. Willard's painting The Spirit of '76 (originally titled Yankee Doodle '76) and a bald eagle (sometimes called the American eagle, the national bird and national animal of the United States) plus Uncle Sam mash-up ... plenty of puke and guts. The picture was taken in Bunk's art studio in New Rochelle, NY on October 16th, 2015 prior to attending the Philly Non-Sports Card Show in Allentown, PA; the show is put together bi-annually by the Non-Sport Update folks. Tom completed 2 new images for the Apple Pie (In Your Face!) set and a slew of previously released and unreleased material from the 80's.



4. GPK Artist Mark Pingitore completed 9 new images for the Apple Pie (In Your Face!) set with 2 additional images from the IDW comic release. The final artwork deadlines by Topps were severe for this release, the artwork suffered in some cases for the artists, but Mark only took on what he was comfortable completing. Several of his original concepts pictured below were changed from their original conception. The simple background concepts seem to work better than the 'stories' that Topps turned them into on card. The Swept Under the Rug 'tailpipe' concept was drastically changed for cards 4a Hum EARL and 4b S. HUGH Vee within the Americana Devolved subset. The 'sock hop' concept was fleshed out for cards 22a Poodle SKYLAR and 22b Sock HOPE within the As American As Apple Pie subset.


5. The Value box Exclusive Chase Subsets stem from earlier Topps franchises; the Gross Bears (Big Bad Buttons) released in 1985 was a parody button set of the 1980s Care Bears and the Bathroom Buddies released in 1996 which was a spin-off non-parody set in the like-ness of the GPK (and Trash Can Trolls) released in 1996. The Wal*Mart and Topps Online Value box contains, for the first time on small card, 6 images from the Gross Bears set, including a previously unpublished piece; all artwork was completed by artist Tom Bunk. The Target Value box contains 6 cards (3 twins) from the unpublished Bathroom Buddies 2nd Series set; all artwork was also completed by artist Tom Bunk. If received well, Topps will continue releasing the Gross Bears and Bathroom Buddies cards in future Garbage Pail Kids sets. Please visit the pages below for additional information on the revived releases.


6. A Card-Case Study: the original artwork for the OS3 printed card 103a Wriggley RENE and 103b Curly CARLA were finished by artist Tom Bunk in December of 1985 and finally published within the 'As American As Applie Pie' subset as cards 6a of 42 and 6b of 42 (previously, this would've been considered a Lost Artwork card). The artwork was re-worked with the character sitting down and holding a snake rather than having a standing profile. The final artwork for this printed piece retains the same number of snakes relatively in the same position, no bite marks, with an added blue snake the medusa-Kid is now holding -- the stuck out tongue remains intact. This character feels like an overflow piece from the 30th Anniversay's 'Lost Alternate Art'.


7. The Original Concept for the U.S. Historical Event cards 5a Mountain DEWEY and 5b Gold RUSS (gold rush), painted by Brent Engstrom, was an updated version of John Pound's BNS1 bonus cards B1a Mountain DEWEY and B1b BUBBA Bumpkin. Topps requested that the character grow-up and strike gold (a.k.a. booger). The character's pose was changed -- there were some communication issues where Engstrom re-drew the character in his original pose but Topps just wanted him to have a clothing colour-scheme similar to Pound's original; still a successful execution of the character -- he could easily be a close relative with the same name if nothing else.


8. Pictured below are a number of various Althernative Concepts of Brent Engstrom's prior to their approval at Topps. Some are drastic while others are somewhat subtle. For the U.S. Summer Olym-Picks cards 4a Stinkin' STELLA and 4b Rowin' ROWENA which character comes from the OS8 set, the original character was OS4 cards 131a Stuffed STEPHEN and 131b RUTHERFORD B. Hay showcasing the crows found on the card image; the octopus out of water and going faster does add a level of humor. The original concept for U.S. Summer Olym-Picks cards 6a BOWEN Arrow and 6b ARCHIE Archery, whose characters stems from the OS8 set, had OS1 character 34a KIM Kong and 34b ANNA Banana using the bow and arrow with her feet while brachiating, but the cupid character was used instead, shooting his brain out instead of his heart -- it's strange he's standing on his two feet instead of flying. The final was painted by JungHwa Im, along with U.S. Summer Olym-Picks cards 8a Tongue Tied TIM and 8b JOEL Vault, a character from the OS2 set whose earlier concept showcased the character with his damaged tongue and in a different position (A red GPK banner and yellow nameplate would have made this card 'pop' more).

The original concept for America's Pastime for cards 3a CHARLOTTE Web and 3b Basket BERTHA, a character from the OS3 set, was placed on top of the web-created basketball hoop (the number 8 feels reminiscent of the red hourglass-shape on the black widow spider's underbelly); another variation has the character under the basket holding a ball with a fly stuck to the hoop-web -- I feel this alternate version works the best for translation. The OS1 character of America's Pastimes for cards 7a ART Apart and 7b Tackled TED showed the character busted up on the field rather than being tackled and busted. The 'zero' number jersey speaks volumes.

For the American Inventors subset, one of the two twin names is either the inventor or patent holder for the product and/or person being parodied -- see the Comprehensive Checklist below for more information. The original concept for 4a Hurrying HARVEY and 4b Portable JOHN was more of a 'movement' gag, the character/item being movable; Topps had Engstrom add customers running after him and some stench steam and flies. The first concept for 6a Say It Ain't So JOE and 6b Toilet Paper RAUL (roll) had the dispenser empty; an easier gag to get than Topps changing the toilet paper head going from happy to sad with the impending bottom wipe (the empty toilet paper roll could still have been left on the wall). The 9a Loud LEO and 9b Atomic BOB (bomb) concept remained the same, but is cool to look at.

The Historical Event OS8 character for cards 8a Inter STELLA and 8b First STEPH (first step) had an alternative concept that was mirror-imaged and a much smaller space shuttle in the background. The Americana Swept Under the Rug original concept for cards 3a Monster CHUCK (truck) and 3b BUCK Truck was flying solo through the air before burning buildings and smoke were added, but the final image was less devestational -- the final artwork's yellow background and purple buildings is coincidentally very similar to Tom Bunk's As American As Apple Pie characters 5a U.S. ARNIE and 5b Bald EDGAR (eagle). The Americana Devolved character for cards 7a Ripped JEAN and 7b FIONA Fashionista (not pictured) was a male figure -- and a price tag was requested to be added by Topps. Topps also had Brent replace the steak with the character's tongue for the As American As Apple Pie cards 3a BILL Grill and 3b CODY Cook and changed his mean look to a normal, happy-go-lucky GPK expression.

The As American As Apple Pie character for 7a Party MARTY and 7b Two-Party Cyst TIM (a very unusual constructed GPK name) were originally two separate concepts brought into the same concept with the characters in a brawl before they took on the nostalgic OS2 'Split KIT'/'Double HEATHER' pose of yesteryears. Topps had a knife added to the cards for 11a ANDY Apple and PATON Pie (not pictured); this character was an instant contender for a box character for the set. Topps also had burning money added to the character's hands for cards 13a Capital CAL and 13b U.S. BILL Ding (not pictured) -- Brent added the cigar. The original character for 14a Brawling BARB and 14b MISSY America was more reminiscent to OS3 characters ALICE Island/Liberty LIBBY with garbage and her crown made of barbed wire; Topps had the dog-pile of contestants added to the image with cuts and bandages along with a severed hand. Very unlike Topps, the fecal geyser for cards 17a OLE Faithful and 17b Yellow STONE was changed to the normal hot water of a regular geyser; the image doesn't pop as much on card without the fecal stream.

Topps had Brent add the OS1 character added to the image for cards 31a Wrinkly RANDY and 31b Har LEE. The gender for cards 41a Log Droppin' LINCOLN and 41b LOGAN Cabin was changed from a pioneer girl to a President Lincoln like character, the name LINCOLN Logs may have been more reminiscent of the popular construction toy set and the scatilogical wordplay. The original concept for cards 42a Area 50 JUAN and 42b Cover Up CHUCK was drastically changed for the final painting; a GPK-alien Kid was replaced by a FBI special agent. With agents Mulder and Scully brought back to TV in January of 2016, a good name would've been XAVIER Files.


9. Below are a few wonderfully rendered Colour Roughs of Brent Engstrom's for various GPKids found in the Applie Pie set. Alhough the stunning imagery for the American Inventor character for cards 9a Loud LEO and 9b Atomic BOB were squeezed into the set as the creator of the atomic bomb, it could easily have found it's way into the ADAM Bomb/ADAM Boom Americana blister pack chase card set as ADAM Gone and Blasted Billy VIII -- I could also evision this character as a wrapper, etc. Cards 33a Struck It RICH adn 33b Crude CRAIG from the As American As Apple Pie subset have the same background colour scheme as the 2014S1 cards 43a WENDY Chimes and 43b Rattled RUTH; the white clouds were removed for the final image.



10. GPK Artist Joe Simko completed close to 20 final artwork pieces for the Apple Pie (In Your Face!) set; he most likely would have contributed much more but was currently hard at work on a '30 Years of Garbage' documentary about Garbage Pail Kids set for a summer 2016 release.

11. GPK Artist David Gross took on much more work for the Apple Pie (In Your Face!) release and completed 17 pieces of final artwork including additional concepts for other works. In general, if you were to take the background out of Gross' pieces, the concepts work just as well; with the backgrounds, they remind me of the later OS releases back in the 80s. The 'hoarder' Swept Under the Rug concept for cards 9a HUGH Hoarder and 9b COLIN Collector, painted by Brent Engstrom, was drastically changed from the character collecting tangible items from the OS cards to a regular GPK card and memorabilia collector. The plethera of GPK gag plot products portrayed in Gross' concept peice is staggering; this would make a GREAT Giant card or GPK Poster image.

The original concept for cards 9a Helicopter HEATHER and 9b Obsessed OLGA within the Americana Devolved subset portrayed three previous OS characters as infants with the 'helicopter parent' hovering above (a term I was unfamiliar with). And, the original concept for cards 23a TOM Prom and 23b Social SAL within the As American As Apple Pie subset had a high school geek bringing a mannequin dummy to prom instead of the girl wearing the kid's head as a corsage. Both of the changed concepts seem to work better in their original state and shouldn't have been edited in my opinion.


12. Artist JungHwa Im worked on 14 images for the Applie Pie (In Your Face!) set based off of artist Brent Engstrom's concepts.

13. The original DONALD Dump character stems from the 2004 All-New Series 3 release and painted by artist Tom Bunk. At the time, Topps still had the artists make the characters look like the new style of GPK, however, in 2012 for the Brand-New Series releases, they were allowed to make them in the CPK-likeness again.


21. GPK Artist Layron Dejarnette completed one final Garbage Pail Kids piece for the Apple Pie (In Your Face!) set for cards 16a Grand GRANT and 16b CARRIE Canyon within the As American As Apple Pie subset and worked on sketch cards for the release.

22. Returning GPK Artist Miran Kim completed one final piece or the Apple Pie (In Your Face!) set for cards 7a Contagious KIMBERLY and 7b Tissue SUE within the American Inventor subset.
