RELEASE PERIOD : JANUARY, 2019


The semi-nostalgic "We Hate the 90s" 2019S1 GPK set announcement was released by the Topps Company, Inc. on Wednesday September 12, 2018 with hobby electronic sell sheets breaking down the source material with mock-up promotional images and retail sheets following close behind on September 14th. The wacky and wistful parody set was scheduled to be released on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 and stated that "the Garbage Pail Kids 'We Hate the 90s' edition features all-new art, parodying cartoons, toys, TV, films, video games, fashion and more, broken down into genre-specific subsets". The GPK series includes all-new artwork and contributions by artists Brent Engstrom, Joe Simko, David Gross, Layron DeJarnette, Fred Wheaton, Miran Kim, Neil Camera, Smokin' Joe McWilliams, JungHwa Im, Colin Walton (editor, art director, writer) and Mark Von Ohlen (brand manager); along with original series artwork by veteran artists John Pound and Tom Bunk. Most individuals involved submitted their own concepts and nomenclature, otherwise Topps attempted with their own efforts; this set would mark the last set that art director Colin Walton would almost complete before leaving Topps and the first retail set that stand-in art director Jessica Kanzer would take over. This release also marks the first set to have all-new material represented on the packaging without using original-series characters. and the last installment of the 90s Bathroom Buddies. For the first print run, each foil or plastic pack (with a suggested retail price of $1.99) contains eight sticker cards, except for the Hobby Collector Edition box with exclusive premium content packs that contain eight stickers per pack or may contain seven stickers per pack with a special insert.


*

The artists were requested by Topps to start submitting concepts in early May while approvals and production of the artwork ran through July. Art director Colin Walton had artist Brent Engstrom complete nine of his approved 90s concepts early, in the middle of production of the 2018S2 Horror-ible paintings, in order to have finished artwork ready for the product release sheets. The nine images were: 'torn jeans'; used for a sell sheet promo card image, as the main artwork for the hobby display box and hobby collector wrapper image, and the retail display and blaster boxes, 'pocket pet'; used for a sell sheet promo card image, 'prepackaged lunch'; used for a sell sheet promo card image and as the hobby display and retail (display, blaster and fat pack) images, 'royale with cheese' used for a sell sheet promo card image and the hobby collector inlay image, 'pog slammer' used for a sell sheet promo card image and side box artwork, 'hip sack'; not used, 'pin art'; not used, 'mortal combat'; not used, and 'barfing terminator'; used for a sell sheet promo card image and as the main artwork for the hobby collector box.
