Garbage Pail Kids Get Their Own Funko POP!
Back in my day(yeah, I went there), also known as the 80’s, toys were a huge part of pop culture. Filled with princesses, dolls and even unicorns, the things that made a little boy hurl. Then came the Garbage Pail Kids who seemingly mocked the Cabbage Patch Kids. Moreover, as a child, this was a response all boys, and even horror fans wanted.
Beginning as a series of trading cards, Pulitzer-prize winning illustrator Art Spiegelman created the series with fellow illustrator Mark Newgarden. Produced by the Topps Company, the first way of the series was drawn solely by artist John Pound.
More artists were taken in to assist in the conception of new lines of personas after the raging success of the first run. The demand for the Garbage Pail Kids drove to a feature-length live-action film (widely thought to be one of the worst movies ever made).
The Garbage Pail Kids have made a cultural influence because they have been graced with a line of Funko Pop! toys. The announcement comes straight from a statement at the London Toy Fair.
Check out the rest of the line of Garbage Pail Kids Funko Pop! below, and if you’re excited, you can pre-order the figures over at Entertainment Earth. They are set to have a release in June 2018
