POINTE-CLAIRE, QC, Canada -- They are described as the grossest guys that live in your garbage. And they belong to one of the hottest-selling retail toy properties for boys. With more than 100 characters to collect and swap, over 66 million units have been sold in two years.
Now Allstar Vending
has acquired the exclusive license for The Trash Pack in bulk and flat vending. "Trash Pack continues to experience immense success since the first series launched in 2011 and we anticipate it to snowball," said Allstar vice president Sharon Shlien.
The Trash Pack was created by Australia's Moose Enterprise, a family-owned toy company also known for Mighty Beanz, Aquasand and Party Animals. The Trash Pack's collectability and low price points made them a worldwide sensation. The original toys, introduced in August 2011, are figurines that come in garbage bins. Putrid Pizza, Garbage Gull, Germ-Worm and Mucky Maggot were among the first characters, and Rankenstein and Moo Cow Disease were the first ultra-rare releases.
According to Shlien, Moose Enterprise is planning several new playsets for 2013, including Ultimate Fighting Trashies (UFT) and a line of trading cards.
For its first vending release, Allstar is shipping Trash Pack stickers. There are 12 stickers that feature sordid characters like Rotten Fish, Stinky Cheese and Mouldy Milk, among other trashies. Vendible $1 toys are in the works. Each 2" capsule will contain a trash can with a collectible inside. The multipurpose toys can be used as pencil toppers, too. Also on tap are 50¢ capsule toys and temporary tattoos. In total, Allstar is expected to release more than 80 Trash Pack collectibles.
