    I picked up 3 Bonus boxes from Target, going to open them tomorrow. I really like this series of cards, we got quite a few of the Adam Bomb History cards.

    went to a different target and got a box and 4 single packs.

    The bonus card B6B Woolly Wanda. which is Knitting Natalie's counter part.

    I got 3 mix n match sticker cards.

    I haven't seen a check list yet. is there one?

    I think I'm done with getting the bonus boxes. Maybe even with the single packs to.

    I got both of the record head guy. was surprised to see the Thor one.

    Have you seen the captain america one , he is neat

    There is a checklist, we bought 10 packs of regular and 3 bonus boxes and now are just 2 cards away from a complete base set (we are missing one Adam Bomb History card and 8 of the hologram type cards). That is probably the quickest that has happened in years

    I got a complete set off of ebay and they came yesterday! I like them a lot - especially Academy WARD and Grouchy OSCAR since I'm a big movie fan.

    Topps just announced Brand New Series 2 for March

    http://www.beckett.com/news/2012/11/...-new-series-2/
    In 2013, the company will put out two new series.

    This decision was easily made based on the success of the 2012 series.

    According to Topps, GPK Brand New Series 1 was the highest selling set in eight years, and the Facebook community grew 21 percent in three months from the launch in August.

    So Topps is putting more in the second series to keep collectors excited.

    Brand New Series 2 will feature 146 characters (compared to 110 in the previous release). There will be 110 returning characters with 55 new images, and A and B variations. There will also be 36 new characters.

    Inserts include Glow in the Dark, Foldees (perforated cards that can be folded multiple ways to create nine jokes with one card), and 3D Cards. In addition, printing plates, parallels, sketch cards and hobby-exclusive bonus cards are included.

    I was wanting to ask if/when we'll know when it's a success. I guess that answers that.

    This is good news. However, I'm a bit confused by the 110 returning characters with 55 new images. Are these returning characters going to be vintage characters like Adam Bomb?

    I'm more excited about the 36 new characters. Some of the images on their website look great!

    They will most likely be updates, where are they now and other forms of the vintage characters

    perfect example. Adam Bomb. First it was his head that was exploding then it was his rear that was exploding.

    Thanks! This makes sense. It was just that the original statements was not worded very clearly.

    I'm still excited about the new series, although I wish that there were more original characters.

    I'm just now paying attention to the news release for ANS #2. (didn't think there was anything worth reading and wasn't expecting a sneak peak. and boy I was wrong on both accounts)

    Of the sneak peaks Roast Ted is my favorite.

    The sneak peeks do look awesome! I like Roast Ted, but Sleep Les is really clever, too.

    Roast Ted reminds me of Jenny Jelly from the original series - maybe Series 2 or 3?

    I am a huge fan of Garbage Pail Kids! Have been since I was 6, and will be til I die! LOL.

    I have around 300 of the original 80's cards, about 100 of the 2003 "All New Series" cards, and now I have close to 100 of the 2012 "Brand New Series" cards. I also have some mini stickers from the 80's as well as some Magnet cards. Any way, I was just wondering if there is a trading thread for GPK here on the org and if not... I think it might be time that we start one!

    I'm not sure about any one else, but I might be willing to trade MOTU for GPK if the situation is right.

    I saw a GPK version of Skeletor and He-Man on Facebook. Is that really a part of a series or just fan made?

    If you are talking about He-Man standing on skeletor yes. He's a bonus art I believe. One of the alternate name is Barbarian Brian. Brian Ozone has it as his avatar.


    ADDITIONAL:

    For $79.99 American money I picked up a box of Garbage Pail kids chrome today.

    It appears to be some kind of reprint of series 1.

    haven't opened it up yet.
