There's polishing a turd, and then there's revealing that if the turds looked juuuuust right they could've been anything but. Wow!

The problem with these isn't solely that they're rehashes, but that their scope is more limited. Trash Pack had animals, monsters, robots, you name it. There's only so much you can stretch the grocery theme into.
Ugglys Pet Shop had a nice idea going with animals, but still limited to things you can get as pets. Moose should really do a line in this style with no limitation at all, just some kind of gross monster series that can be literally anything - trash, aliens, ghosts, whatever.

Wish they would stick with firmer rubbers or plastics though. That soft rubber sucks.

These are out here now, they look pretty much exactly the same as Trash Pack and are basically Trashies by another name, which is fine by me.
The packaging looks less bulky with less useless plastic containers, which is good.
Argos in the UK will have a "Vile Vending Machine" mega pack containing 20 exclusive figures. Not sure if this release is UK only or international.

I've been buying these for a week or so now. I've managed to get 3 of the fuzzy rotten fruit. (The pumpkin is the best!) and one of the ultra rare 1 of 5000 metallic figures. (sardines)
There are still a few I'd like to collect. Is anyone else buying these? I'd be interested in trading down the line.

I'll do some trading with you. So far, I have only found commons. I'll get some pictures together next weekend and post them.

Kinda surprised there isn't more interest in these but I know people have been disappointed with these Moose lines. My kids really want some but I'm holding out till Christmas to get a bunch. I gotta be honest though, I'd scoop up a nice lot of the moldy ones in a heartbeat. Bought them a pack the other day as a prize for doing some good things at their schools and the pack came with a moldy guy. Love him and he isn't near as soft as the others. Maybe it's just cause their cousins are in love with the shopkins, but they really seem to like this line.
Maybe I should just hold off like the trashies and buy a ton for pennies down the road. If outside eBay anyone knows where I could find the mold or some of metal ones cheap, let me know.

I saw a post on here from someone making a series similar to these but with armor- food fighter style and that is a great idea.

Soooo, was at toy fair and caught a quick glimpse of something Moose has in the works. Last year I pitched them Snack Attack. They said, they didnt want to scale up the figures so they werent interested. Then I see these, this week.

Those look okay. Thank you for sharing.
I'd rather see what the Snack Attack is doing.

At least they only took a small idea, instead of ripping you off completely. it could be much, MUCH worse.
