    The Trash Pack - Awesome and addicting new mini figures!

    Have any of you been picking up the new Trash Pack line? I grabbed a few around Christmas time and I've become quite addicted!

    They totally give me a nostalgic feel! They usually come in little plastic trash cans (like vintage MUSCLE!) and you don't always know what you're buying until you open them up!

    They are a LOT of fun!

    Here's a recent video I did on Series 2. Check it out!
    Seriously, check these things out! They are really fun!

    Anyone else addicted?

    Cool video, seen these are Toys R Us and they totally reminded me of Garbage Pail Kids meets M.U.S.C.L.E.S. Very 80's feel even down the packaging

    A lot of people also say they remind them of the Trash Bag Bunch. They even have these new ones out now called Fizzing Garbage Bags that you put in water and they disolve and fizz to reveal what Trashies you got inside! I bought one last night and plan to do a video on it as well!

    I'm hooked!

    More of my videos, if you guys care to watch!

    I've seen them but the prices put me off. I think the figurines are neat but not enough to get me to sink money into it(and while I can see pics here, the package in the store gave me no indication of what they were like) and I suppose the trash cans included really only increase the price a bit, and I'm to the point of counting every dollar so I've gotten selective.

    Oh geeze, I HAD no idea these exist. Kind of makes our statements on the MG kind of a face palm moment. I'll be going to TRU after work today. I have some of the **** figures coming from October Toys; I can't wait for those to get here.

    Definitely check them out! I think you guys will like them after hearing your discussions on your podcast! TRU tends to put them down their board game aisle for some reason. Target had them on an end cap in the action figure aisle.

    O.M.F.G. from October Toys seriously rocks as well! Glad you got some of those!

    I'm hoping for a restock of their ZOMBIES and that they continue that.

    You know I'm loving the Trash Pack, Dan. They combine the coolness factor of several things I loved in the 80s and very early 90s into a fun thing today. I've been trying to find the damn things for so long but they were sold out constantly here. I blame the Christmas season.

    I uploaded a few youtube videos of me opening up various Trash Pack things to see what I got, but I can't post them here because I swear in them. So watch Dan's videos. His are more professional and editted. Mine are me not sober and swearing while opening them. Which is hilarious because all the "related videos" on youtube are like 7 year old kids opening theirs. One of them even watched my videos and replied and wants to trade.

    edit: dammit pic didnt work.

    LOL! Yeah, all of the suggested videos on mine are those kids too. Kind of makes me feel like a weird old man opening his up online like all the little kids.

    These toys are so cool, they certainly have that 80's feeling to them. The designs and names are hilarious and that garbage truck rocks. Wish I could afford to collect some of these, I rarely get interested in toys that have nothing to do with my childhood but I find the Trash Pack is something I would enjoy collecting.

    Thanks for sharing the videos, they were all fun to watch!

    You're welcome! Glad you liked!

    Yeah, the nostalgic feeling is what makes these so fun to collect! Even though they weren't around when we were kids, they feel like they're from that era!

    My Toys R Us has ZERO Series 1 and never did I don't think. They were always sold out everytime I checked. All they had was the Garbage Truck and the Collector's Tin for storing them. What's the point in buying any of that kinda stuff if they have no damn Trashies?

    I hope my Toys R Us gets in some of those. Even though I'd rather be buying 12 packs for $9.99, I'll glad buy a **** load of smaller packs just to get some more Series 1.

    My TRU also had the series 1 single cans. I grabbed one along with a series 2 single egg the other day!

    I also wandered into a K-Mart yesterday and they had Series 1 packs hanging on their pegs! I was quite surprised to see that!

    Yeah, I haven't checked K-Mart yet but knew they would show up there eventually. I emailed Moose Toys about Series 1 availability once Series 2 was out all over the place and they responded rather quickly:

    Wow, so looks like TRU is still the place to go for the best variety! That's pretty much exactly what I've seen, too! K-Mart only had series 1 5-Packs and Target only had series 2 12-Packs.

    Didn't see them at my local Target, but TRU had bunch of stuff, not much series one though. I also notices a commercial for these while my daughter was watching the HUB.

    When I was at one of my local TRU stores this weekend I looked for these and found TONS of different items from large metal collectors trash cans, garbage truck, 5-packs, 12-packs, 2-pack foil bags, and several different play sets.

    I didn't get any (yet) as I am still working on my Heroics, BUT after seeing your videos I just HAVE to have them!

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    UPDATE: I went late yesterday afternoon looking for Trash Packs. I first went to Target and they didn't have anything. So, then I went over to Toys R Us and picked up the Garbage Truck and 3 of the 12-packs. I am now addicted. Thanks Dan

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.
