After a five year absence, The Topps Company will once again be returning to San Diego Comic-Con and can be found at Booth #4120 with exclusives for attendees. To celebrate the company’s return, Topps is offering an all-new Garbage Pail Kids character, as well as exclusives from Mars Attacks.
Additionally, Topps will be hosting a Mars Attack Trading Card Scavenger Hunt during Comic-Con. The scavenger hunt will consist of 9 exclusive free connecting puzzle cards, featuring brand new art by Chad McCown and is the first official continuation of the 2013 card series, Mars Attacks: Invasion! Attendees can pick up the first card at the Topps Booth, and then will have to search out the remaining cards at a variety of other booths around the cards. Each card is free, and the back of each card will point convention-goers to the location of the next card in the series.
Here’s a look at what Topps will be bringing to San Diego Comic-Con:
Garbage Pail Kids “Comic Conner”: To celebrate their return, Topps has created an all-new Garbage Pail Kids character, “Comic Conner,” who will appear on a show exclusive limited edition T-Shirt available for just $20. Topps will also be giving away an exclusive “Comic Conner” promo card– which will be strictly limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Garbage Pail Kids Trading Card Prints: Also exclusive to the show are a set of 11×14 jumbo Garbage Pail Kids trading card prints, perfectly suitable for framing, and feature 6 popular “GPK” characters including “Comic Conner.” These jumbo card prints will be priced at $10 each or all 6 for just $40 (while supplies last).
Additionally, fans can pick up the Mars Attacks vs. Presidential Monsters 2-Pack featuring a Martian soldier and “Baracula”, a spin on Barack Obama. That set will be available at the Heroes in Action Booth #3450.
