Trash Bag Bunch by Galoob

Trash Bag Bunch was a line of toy figures released by Galoob in 1992. The ingenious gimmick with these toys was that they came in special ‘garbage bags’ and you couldn’t see which figure you were purchasing until you got home and immersed the bags in water. The bags would then fizz and dissolve to reveal your figure.

There were 36 figures to collect – 18 Disposers (the good guys) = the filth-fighters standing for all that is clean, and 18 Trashors (the bad guys) = evil dump dwellers fighting dirty and mean. Figures included monsters, robots and alien creatures.

A Grip ‘n Dip Bagger playset was also released in 1992. Essentially a hand-operated crane enabling you to re-bag your trash figures.

    Can you imagine the frustration of trying to get a specific figure with a toy line like this? I also wonder how evenly the different figures were distributed? I suppose it is not unlike a toy version of trading cards.

      Yes, you’re right. It’s also a bit like Kinder Eggs when they have collectable figures, can be a nightmare chasing a particular figure to complete the set, and sometimes the only option is to trade with other collectors or search online auctions.

    This little figs look nice. They’d look at home with some MUSCLES, GRUNTS, or even Battle Beasts. I don’t remember these, I guess since I was in High School and my mind was on other things. Now I need to track down some.of these.
