    3 posts in and 2 directly mention your own product. Not a good look.

    It's usually proper form to participate and be involved in the community, before trying to sell them something.

    Just excited to share what I've been putting my time into, not meaning to annoy

    I guess it's unknown that I've been registered for a month looking at other threads but only just got my registration approval today...

    Jeez these things are giant compared to the originals . The dissolving trash bag packaging for the originals is my favorite toy packaging of all time , of course I imagine that had to be left on the editing room floor for these.

    The initial Trash Bag Bunch had such a variety of styles , some of which I could see translating better into larger figures than others . Are they all based on the original Mel Birnkrant characters (I think I spelled his name right) and how many characters do you plan to release in the first wave?

    Also ,when you say "vinyls" what exactly do you mean? Nice sculpting by the way .

    And welcome to SB ,hope to see you participating around the board.

    For those unfamiliar with the Tbag Bunch :

    Thanks dude. They're 4X the size of original toys, so no giant dissolving trash bags, haha! Chinese produced roto vinyl.

    I'm just doing these 2 now, with a third planned, funding allowing. That's it for the first go. I really hope to do more if people are receptive! But 2-3 for starts is a big enough undertaking.

    Many of the designs, the more human-ish ones mostly, are pretty lame, but I'd love to work through maybe 10-12 of the coolest monsters and robots. I decided to not dilute the TBB theme with my own designs, so just sticking with the original characters.

    ^^Thanks!

    I feel very lucky and privileged to be doing these toys. Also my favorite minis ever! And simply, some great monster designs. I think they were particularly unique in that they each had 3-5 colors painted on, which is pretty unheard of for static minis at that time.

    Mel is such a nice guy. He and I started talking several months ago and I brought this up as an idea and he thought it sounded great! So much respect for his history of toy inventiveness and a really knowledgable guy who's just passionate about what he does. And we related quite a bit over both having a string of failed attempts with toys :)

    I remember how excited I use to get over getting these. My parents didn’t have a lot of money when I was a kid. But when these came out, I could convince them to buy me one every couple of weeks! I would pick up twenty different packages and shake them in the store, before finally committing to the one I was gonna buy. Of course then I would wanna rush straight home and check to see what I got right away! Haha, I still remember how upset I was when I got home and realized I got a duplicate Muckoid!

    Haha, if you have to get a duplicate, Muckoid is the way to go ;)

    I remember they were perpetually on sale for "buy on get on free," And only $1 or $2, so it wasn't hard to get my mom to buy them for me. And there were some that were packed 2 in a bag as a rare surprise. I got one of those, but was similarly disappointed that it was Sparkler. I thought getting a rare double bag was awesome! But Sparkler? SPARKLER?! Come on!

    Worked up some GID samples. The pigment settled in some places, but it glows nicely and I think pretty well represents how a factory GID will look.

    These are pretty cool! It's nice to see a franchise like this come back around in 2018. I too have fond memories of these guys–specifically, dissolving several bags one-by-one in my grandma's kitchen sink. I had a grip of them back in the day including Muckoid here.

    Looking back, 1991 was a supremely nostalgic year for rad mini toys. These guys, Savage Mondo Blitzers, and Monster in My Pocket were all on the shelves simultaneously. Sheesh.

    Just gonna slap a very shameless plug here for the Kickstarter. It's been up for a week, and doing pretty well, but I need all the support I can get!

    There're lots of goodies available at various reward tiers. Any shares or support would go a long way and be greatly appreciated! I've got a bunch more toys planned after these, so this will be a great jump-start to more monsters, colaborations, and licenses.

    Thanks for taking a look: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1002792664/trash-bag-bunch-xl-vinyl-art-toys

    A set of the Trash Bag Bunch XL prototypes will be hanging out at the Tenacious Toys booth #234 at Five Points Fest this weekend if anyone wants to stop by and poke them!

    Winding down the Kickstarter in a week--hopefully the exposure at Five Points will get some more backers.

    Either way, I'm happy to have the exposure, and glad Benny at Tenacious Toys proposed taking them with him to display.
