Garbage Pail Kids – Adam Bomb Free Paper Toy

This paper toy is the Adam Bomb, based on the series of trading cards Garbage Pail Kids, the papercraft was created by Bryan. Garbage Pail Kids (aka “The Garbage Gang” in Australia and New Zealand and later United Kingdom versions, “La Pandilla Basura” [The Garbage Gang] or “Basuritas” [Trashlings] in Latin America, “Gang do Lixo” [Trash Gang] in Brazil, “Sgorbions” [Snotlings] in Italy, “Les Crados” [The Filthies] in France and Belgium, and “Die total kaputten Kids” [The Totally Broken Kids] in Germany) is a series of trading cards produced by the Topps Company, originally released in 1985 and designed to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls created by Xavier Roberts which were immensely popular at the time.

Each sticker card features a Garbage Pail Kid character having some comical abnormality, deformity and/or suffering a terrible fate, with a humorous, word play-rich character name such as Glandular Angela or Half-Nelson. Two versions of each card were produced, with variations featuring the same artwork but a different character name denoted by an “a” or “b” letter after the card number. The sticker fronts are die-cut so just the kid with its nameplate and the GPK logo can be peeled from the backing. Many of the card backs feature puzzle pieces to form giant 9-card murals; other back subjects vary greatly among the series, from humorous licenses and awards to comic strips and, in more recent releases, “Fakebook” profiles.

15 original series of regular trading cards were released in the United States, with various sets released in other countries. Two large-format card editions were also released, as well as a set of fold-out posters. All-New Series sets were introduced in 2003, Flashback re-releases began in 2010, and a Brand-New Series was announced for 2012.
