INTERNATIONAL GARBAGE PAIL KIDS

After I got done collecting all of the U.S. Garbage Pail Kids I thought it might be fun to start collecting cards from all over the world. Last year I added G.P.K.'s from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Peru, and Spain to my collection. In Canada the cards are the same except for the wrappers/gum and in Italy the cards are just smaller, but in the other countries the cards look much different and have totally different names. Here are some scans from my collection:

Italian (Sgorbions)

Spain (La Pandilla Basura)

Israel (Havurat Ha'zevel)

Photobucket
Germany (Die Total Kaputten Kids)

Photobucket
France (Les Crados)

Photobucket
Australia (The Garbage Gang)

Photobucket
Brazil (Gang Do Lixo)

Photobucket
Argentina (Basuritas)

Photobucket
Peru (La Pandilla Basura)

Pretty much the only foreign Garbage Pail Kid I couldn't get a hold of for my collection is a ultra rare "Bukimi Kun" from Japan. These cards are the "Holy Grail" for collectors and when one pops up from time to time on Ebay one card can go from $140-500+.
Here is what they look like:

It would be a great title for a foreign film wouldn't it?

Awesome post! Would you consider selling the Gang Do Lixo "Caio Do Trono" card?
