2018 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Series 2 Oh, The Horror-ible! Hobby Box Break & Review

Now this is a change of pace.  I’ll admit, I have never opened a box of Garbage Pail Kids stickers before.  Why not give it a try?

Garbage Pail Kids have been a pop-culture sensation since they debuted back in 1985.  They’re a parody of those Cabbage Patch Kids dolls that had crazy parents fighting with each other in the malls.  Since then, these parodies have gone on to parody other people, places, and things in pop-culture.  Nothing is off the table when it comes to these little guys and gals poking fun at someone or something.  The artwork is incredibly entertaining to look at, and I love the whole idea about taking something so innocent and making it vile and disgusting.  That’s it’s selling point.  They’re the anti-Cabbage Patch Kids.

Just in time for Halloween, we have 2018 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Series 2 – Oh, The Horror-ible!  If there is any genre that Garbage Pail Kids connect to the strongest, its horror.  These dudes are cute and horrifying all at the same time.

The main set consists of (200) sticker cards.  (100) characters each having an a and b version.  The categories covered include ’80s Horror, ’80s Sci-Fi, Modern Horror, Modern Sci-Fi, Classic Film Monsters, Retro Horror, Retro Sci-Fi, and Folklore Monsters.

Outside of hobby boxes, you have retail options and Collector’s Boxes.  A Collector’s Box is the only place you’re guaranteed a hit.  Hits can be Printing Plates, Manufactured Patches, Artist Autographs, and Sketch Cards.

Parallels:

  • Bruised (1 per Collector’s Box pack)
  • Jelly (1 per Fat Pack)
  • Phlegm (retail)
  • Puke (1 per retail/hobby pack)
  • Spit #’ed/99 (Collector’s Box)
  • Bloody Nose #’ed/75 (Collector’s Box)
  • Fool’s Gold #’ed/50
  • Printing Plates #’ed 1/1

With Halloween right around the corner this made for a fun break.  Very refreshing from what I’m use to opening.  Sketch Cards and Printing Plates seem to be the biggest hits.  Even parallels where the subject matter is a parody of a popular movie or television franchise like Friday The 13th or Halloween get quite the attention.

Here is what I pulled:
