My kids are into Trashies this month ( I think that they are called Trash Pack, but trashies sounds better to me)
What a great marketing plan these guys have put in place. There are approximately 150 little plastic figures in each series ( they have 4 series to date).
Each one comes in a plastic garbage pail, some are more rare than others but all will be junk and forgotten about in a month.
Toys R Us and London Drugs carry them in Canada at around $1.75 each
Sure enough they are available more plentiful in the USA for around $1.00 and even cheaper if you look online.
The company that makes them is called Moose out of Australia. The next thing I will check is whether or not they are even cheaper in Australia.
Hopefully we will find King Rat which is the rarest out of series one and sells for over $500.00, other good ones are soggy tomato and trash cat.
The hard part will be to convince my kids to sell them on Ebay.
Jan 15,2013 update:
In my quest to find the coveted king rat, soggy tomato and trash cat i noticed that series one is still available in retail stores across canada.
Sure enough they are selling for almost twice as much as Canadian retail on ebay because in the USA, Australia, UK and elsewhere they are sold out of series 1 (the green trash cans)
Check out the toys r us canadian website and they are selling the series 1 12 packs for $12.99.
Only problem is that they will not ship outside of Canada so you need a Canadian address to ship them too.
