RELEASE DATE : JANUARY 2007

The All-New Series 6 GPK set was released in the winter of 2007 by the Topps Company, Inc. and distributed in January; eight months after the All-New Series 5 GPK set. The set is comprised of all new artwork by veteran GPK artists John Pound, Tom Bunk and card-back and insert card artwork by Jay Lynch (and newcomer Scott Gross). This series also includes next-generation GPK artists Luis Diaz, Layron DeJarnette, Brent Engstrom, John Cebollero, David Gross, newcomer Fred Wheaton and concept artwork by Jeff Zapata (art director), Mark Pingitore and several of the artists listed above and within the checklist. For the first print run each foil pack, with a suggested retail price of 99¢, contains 5 sticker cards on 14 card stock with a great gloss finish and a chance to come across an Action Punch Outs card (Activity Card; 1:3 packs) or a Magnet card (1:6 packs). The packs also contain a stick of bubble gum not seen since the original GPK series in the 1980's, but sealed and protected with plastic; unlike the square gum packaged with the All-New Series 1 packs. The set also contains five Bonus cards that can be found in special retail value boxes or blister packs. The series once again starts back at number one; except for the Bonus cards and Promo card.

1.
Card 24b TOM Bunk (meaning 'top bunk') is potentially named after veteran GPK artist Tom Bunk. Artist John Pound placed a poster of the iconic character ADAM Bomb on the bedroom wall along with a GPK sticker.

2.
The third U.S. GPK set to have an official Promo Card which was released at the San Diego Comic Convention in July of 2006. The first promo card being P1 CHRISTINA Ugliera from the ANS3 set and the second being the unnumbered 'P0' Batty BRAD from the ANS5 set. Promo card P2 Alien ALAN shares the same name as card 283a Alien ALAN from the original OS7 set. The name was changed to 40a LEONARD Nimrod and 40b Trekkie TREVOR for the final release with the GPK header changed to blue and the nameplate changed to yellow. The card is peculiar having a vertical front and a horizontal back as far as Bonus cards go.


3. Strangely, the cards backs for ANS6 are printed Upside Down; or, not right side-up as the previous releases.

4. The set contains several Same Names from previous GPK sets: ANS6 card 12a Blown Away RAY and ANS4 card 21a Blown Away RAY, ANS6 card 14b COLE Cut and OS 6 card 229a COLE Cut, ANS6 card 26a MIKE Strike and OS8 card 301B MIKE Strike, ANS6 card 30a Clawed CLAUDE and OS10 card 410b Clawed CLAUDE and ANS6 card P2 Alien ALAN and OS7 card 283a Alien ALAN.

5. The Knife image portrayed in the artwork for cards 1a Orange JULIUS and 1b Peeled NEAL was changed to a vegetable peeler for the advertising sell sheet and fold-out brochure as well as the final card artwork. However, the only published place where the original concept of a knife can be seen is within the GPK ad for the Previews Nov. 2006, Vol. XVI issue.


6.
The set has two characters with the Same First Name for cards 17a SCOTT Pocket and 39a Shot SCOTT.

7.
As printed on the All-New Series 6 promotional material, the series Chase Cards include all-new Foil Action Punch Outs cards (Activity cards, numbering 1-12) and Magnet cards; replacing the Alphabet Stickers released for the All-New Series 5 set. Like many recycled ideas within the Topps non-sport card set history, the Activity card is not a new idea.
Activity cards (Action Punch Out cards) first appeared in the Topps 1993 Nicktoons card set featuring the characters from the Rugrats, The Ren and Stimpy Show and Doug cartoons. The Activity chase cards are die-cut cards that can be punched out and assembled to create interactive games. As mentioned in the official Topps ANS6 release letter, as an example, one would pull a tab to find out what's in LUKE Puke's vomit, which was changed to CHRISTINA Barfarina for the release. Other GPK-related themes can be found throughout the Nicktoons set including tattoos, file cards and Triplex (a re-naming of the popular 'Flick-It' section on the card backs of older GPK sets). The Activity Cards replaced the originally planned animated Lenticular 'Flix Pix' cards late in production (Lenticulars would later be released in the Brand New Series 1 set).
The GPK header on the back of the Activity Cards can be found in six different colors: red, dark blue, orange, green, purple and light blue.


8. The first set to have a cards with the name in small Font and the word in large font and bold for cards 4a JESS Married and 10b ELLIOT Nest.

9.
For the advertisement material, the fold-out brochure has the new Tag-Line 'SUPER-GROSS STICKERS' including the mock-up box image; however, the Promo card back still has the old 'GROSS STICKERS' tag-line and the sell sheet has no mention of either of the taglines. The ANS6 box arrangement has the GPK header as a double-lined banner rather than a straight banner as seen in OS special releases.

10. ANS6 is the first set to contain Mix and Match card backs with concepts and artwork roughs created by Jay Lynch and the final artwork completed by newcomer Scott Gross. there are a total of six different characters made up of three cards each that can be inter-changed to create various variations of GPKids and humorous sayings numbering and lettering from 1A to 6A for the head region, 1B to 6B for the torso and area and 1C to 6C for the legs and feet portion. The set as a whole does not have any comic backs and very little written material.


11
. The All-New 6th Series is the second GPK set to contain Magnet Cards numbering 1 - 9 that can be located within packs with the ratio of 1 out of every 6 (1:6); the magnets are not die-cut as initually stated in the Previews set overview.

12
. The first set to have a series Checklist titled and outlined in the same color as the packaging; blue. Also, the first set to have an insert checklist to contain the GPK header. Magnet 3 of 12 Cracked SHELDON is mispelled Craked SHELDON on the insert checklist. The checklists are printed upside down along with the rest of the series card backs.

13.
The Topps All-New Series 5 Wacky Packages set contains a parody poking fun at the Garbage Pail Kids product for card #28 titled Garbage Pail Geezers. Artist David Gross completed the concept for Topps in September of 2006 along with two previous concepts pictured below for an action figure and a Gentle Plain Kids card pack. Artist Fred Wheaton also created a concept titled Germy Pale Kids but it was not picked for the ANS5 Wacky Packages set.

NOTE: CONCEPT TOOK 8 YEARS TO BE PUBLISHED; 'BORING' A+ ADAM (BOMB) PARODY WITH NO EXPLOSION

14. GPK next-gen artist Luis Diaz pays Tribute to two original series characters in two different final artwork pieces for the ANS6 set. Diaz stuck in an oval framed picture of the OS9 character 355a Beasty BOYD and 355b Semi COLIN in the artwork for cards 3a Me Too LOU and 3b Mirror MAX. Luis also stuck a square framed picture of the OS12 character 472a WALTER Fall and 472b RONNY Nose in the artwork for cards 22a Tailored TAYLOR and 22b MITCH Stitched. However, these framed pictures cannot be seen on the printed card.

15
. The set contains a pair of cards that can be found with Black And White Numbers for ANS6 cards 5a Canned CARL (white) and card 5b Dogged DOUG (black). This phenomenon can be found in the OS2 set for cards 46a and 46b, in the OS3 set for variation cards 113a, within the OS7 set for variation cards 289b and in ANS4 set for cards 17a (white) and 17b (black), 21a (white) and 21b (black), 23a (white) and 23b (black), 24a (white) and 24b (black) and 26a (black) and 26b (white).

16
. The set contains several Concepts that are very similar to other Garbage Pail Kids and Trash Can Trolls card ideas from previous Topps releases:

ANS6 cards 5a Canned CARL and 5b Dogged DOUG : OS9 cards 362a DOUG Food and 362b NICK Yick

ANS6 cards 26a MIKE Strike and 26b Bowling For DALLAS : OS8 cards 301A Bowling ELAINE and 301B MIKE Strike

ANS6 cards 29a Rasta Roni TONY and 29b Spaghetti EDDY : TCT cards 3a AL A.Carte and 3b FREDDY Spaghetti

ANS6 cards 39a Shot SCOTT and 39b Fired FRED : OS14 cards 549a SHANNON Cannon and 549b Bomb SHELLY

17.
Artist Luis Diaz's re-occuring pink spray Water Bottle that can be seen throughout the ANS5 set is pictured in cards 8a ROD N' Reel and 8b Fisher MANNY; the boat name 'LD06' can be located on the side which stands for 'Lias Diaz 2006'.

18
. A Topps Vault postcard was handed out at the San Diego Comic Con in July 2006 along with the P2 Promo cards. The postcard measures roughly 5 by 7 inches on thick card stock with a gloss finish and showcases the ADAM Bomb character from the original OS1 set. Other Topps Vault magazine ads in the past few years have also shown various GPK images to promote the original artwork and collectibles being sold by the Topps Company through the eBay auction house. The 2006 ad again shows the ADAM Bomb GPK character among the images of Wacky Packages characters. There was also a 2005 magazine ad that exclusively advertised for the Garbage Pail Kids that displayed images for five OS1 GPK cards (including ADAM Bomb) and an image of a boy and girl drinking 'Garbage Paik Kola' out of a miniature toilet; this image can be found within the GPK Poster set on poster #1. The Feb/March 2007 issue of Non-Sport Update magazine contained a Topps Vault ad that showcased several GPK original artwork pieces and the April/May 2007 issue of NSU had a new Topps Vault advertising the ANS5 Wacky Packages artwork with the popular OS1 Kid Graffiti PETEY. Another Topps Vault ad showed up in September of 2007 displaying the final artwork for the OS10 cards Gullivered TRAVIS from the NSU: The Encyclopedia Volume 1 publication.




19. GPK newcomer artist Fred Wheaton's last name can be found as a Signature on the painting that he completed for the set on cards 38a I-Clod TODD and 38b MP TREY.

20. The seventeenth series to contain cards with The GPK Acronym
(or initialism) found within the artwork; the GPK acronym found on the dog food can of cards 5a Canned CARL and 5b Dogged DOUG, on the two signs of cards 14a Deli CONNOR and 14b COLE Cut , on the bandana of cards 16a Hacked HOGAN and 16b RUSSEL Mania (the card also contains the 't' for the Topps logo), on the hand of playing cards on cards 23a Poker Face CHASE and 23b Card Shark MARK, on the 'GRAB-A-GPK' toy machine of cards 30a Clawed CLAUDE and 30b ROY Toy, on the king's crown of cards 31a Booger KEN and 31b Whopper WYATT, on the train of cards 32a THOMAS The Train Wreck and 32b Off The Rails GAIL, on the ketchup bottle of cards 37a CAT Sup and 37b Bottled BAILEY, on the flag of cards 39a Shot SCOTT and 39b Fired FRED, on the shirt of cards 40a LEONARD Nimrod, 40b Trekkie TREVOR and P2 Alien ALAN, on the sticker page of card b19 Scrapped BROOKE, on the shirt of the activity card 4 of 12 'Spit Kickers' and on the baseball cap of the Mix and Match card 5A.

1.
GPK Veteran Artist Tom Bunk contributed nine final artwork pieces for the ANS6 set, six of his own concepts, including a sketch I had sent him where we became co-concept creators on for cards 36a Tusky TIFFANY and 36b Buck Toothed BRENDA; the mock-up card name for 36a Tusky TUCKER can be found on the side panel of the Gravity Feed box and on other marketing ads. My intended concept showed a Kid with more of a rodent-like incisors issue and their failed attempts at flossing; the idea can still be found on Bunk's initial concepts for the piece. Topps and Bunk put a slight twist on the concept and changed the overall theme to a Kid with more of a canine teeth-like dilemma. On April 30, 2006 artist Fred Wheaton surprised me and sent an amazing rendered drawing of the concept in tight pencil. Bunk paid tribute to my concept by placing 'A.J. Was Here' on the bathroom wall.


2. GPK Veteran Artist John Pound contributed seventeen final artwork pieces for the ANS6 set including several of his own concepts. Pound
's preliminary artwork at the tight pencil stage tends to always look like the final artwork with little revisions since initial thumbnail drawings have not been available to the public. The color rough example is for cards 12a Blown Away RAY and 12b Over Blown Ramon that shows some slight color variations compared to the final artwork that has white shoes, a green t-shirt and red window frames. That pencil rough example is an alternate version used for cards 27a Lemon NED and 27b Puckered PARKER ; it is unknown what the other version looks like. Please visit: PoundArt.com


3.
GPK Veteran Artist Tom Bunk tends to create a few pencil concepts and two or three colour concepts for each piece created with the initial drawings being (obviously) the most different from the final printed product. Below are samples of the color rough images for five of his published paintings describing some of the changes for the final artwork as well as an unpublished concept piece. All of Bunk's ANS6 pieces can be located in the last portion of the set including several Bonus cards.

4. GPK concept and Card Back Artist Jay Lynch was commisioned by Topps to create the special insert Activity Cards (aka Action Punch-Outs) for the ANS6 set. Lynch completed the final artwork himself for the Activity Cards; per the artist, no roughs exist for these cards. Lynch worked with newcomer Scott Gross with the Mix and Match card backs, with Jay completing the roughs and Scott finishing the final artwork. Besides the back of the cards, Lynch was also the sole naming panel for the entire set, as he was for the ANS5 release, and also submitted three concepts for the set: 19a Poop Head PAUL and 19b Turd Face TRACE, 31a Booger KEN and 31b Whopper WYATT and b19 Scrapped BROOKE.


5. GPK Next-Gen Artist Luis Diaz completed seven paintings for the All-New Series 6 release; several images were changed from their original state with several pieces having alternate poses and color schemes. Diaz continued to contribute the most new paintings as a next-generation GPK artist, as with the ANS5 set, but completeling far less pieces of artwork than the ANS5 release.

7.
GPK Next-Gen Artist Brent Engstrom contributed six final artwork pieces from his own concepts for the ANS6 set. Engstrom previously completed two final artwork pieces for the All-New Series 5 set and has quickly become the second biggest contributor to the GPK canon for the next-generation artists. Picture below are various concept stages to Engstroms' tight pencil and color rough pieces. Brent intended the original concept behind cards 13a TARA Too and 13b Naughty NATALIE to be a tattoo artist placing a tat' on the client's arm, where the Kid tattoo is spewing blood; instead, the person is a weightlifter and the Kid tattoo is vomiting barf. The last sketch pictured is for an unpublished piece, later altered and released within the ANS7 set. One thing to note; more and more next-gen artists card artwork is being chosen for the puzzles.

Pictured below are a few of Fred's concepts, including ones not accepted by Topps but were eerily close to some of the concepts already approved for the set.
