GARBAGE PAIL KIDS Mystery Minis Coming From Funko

GARBAGE PAIL KIDS Mystery Minis Coming From Funko

Back in the ’80s, you were the lowest kid on the totem pole if you didn’t have any Garbage Pail Kids sticker trading cards to trade at recess or on the school bus. For a handful of years, Garbage Pail Kids, which were basically gross-out spoofs of the popular and wholesome Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, and which had names like Acne Amy and Jay Decay, were the scourge of parents and teacher everywhere. In fact, my elementary school banned them for a time. (quaint to think of a time when silly trading cards were the big problem in American elementary schools).

Of course, like most things from that era, there is massive nostalgia for them now, and the folks at Funko are capitalizing on the love for all things Garbage Pail Kids by making them the subject of their latest line of Mystery Mini vinyl figures. These little guys come in a “blind box,” so you don’t know exactly who you’ll be getting until you buy them, kind of like getting a pack of cards back in the day. Among the classic GPK characters you could get are Buggy Betty, Brainy Janie, and Beasty Boyd. The new Garbage Pail Kids Mystery Minis are available now, and you can see a preview of them in our gallery below.

But wait! There’s more Funko awesomeness coming your way in 2017! Coming next year to the Super Deluxe vinyl figures line is DC Comics’ #1 hero, Batman. Unlike the regular Funko Pop! vinyl figures, the Super Deluxe line stands  10″ tall and packaged in a window display box, for all you “keep them in the box” type collectors out there (you know who you are). Batman Super Deluxe figure hits stores in February. You can also check out a preview image of Bats down below in our gallery.

Which of these Garbage Pail Kids is your favorite? And how badass (and adorable) is the new Super Deluxe Batman? Let us know what you think in the comments down below!
