What: What: A line of soft, squishy rubber creatures that come packaged with small plastic trash cans. I had seen these in the store for the longest time and kept passing them by, thinking they were basically less-cute Squinkies. Well, they are basically less-cute Squinkies. But I finally realized something upon closer inspection: they're pretty awesome! The line consists of a wide variety of garbage/gross-themed characters ("Trashies") separated into six groups: The Grubz (food-themed), Bin-Fections (germ-themed), Bin-Sects (bug-themed), Bin Critters (animal-themed), Hard Rubbish (household object-themed) and Bin Monsters (monster-themed, obviously). The amount of different characters combined with the fact that figures range from "common" to "ultra rare" (in addition to exclusive and limited edition figures) make the Trash Pack extremely collectible. I'll definitely be picking up some more of these. To find out more, check out the Trash Pack official site or Facebook page.
