Drop Alert! Topps GPK Nifty Kids Mix-and-Match Collection
Tomorrow at 17 UTC, GPK returns to WAX with a brand-new collection, featuring a fresh, never-before-seen twist!
If there’s one thing we all like, it’s uniqueness.
Whether it’s an item in a video game, a rare copy of a book or a signed work from an artist, we crave to have that which others do not – to have something to call our own.
Returning from their Avalanche journey, Topps GPK are bringing this sense of uniqueness to collectors on WAX through a pack drop concept that’s never been seen before on the blockchain.
This Thursday at 17 UTC, 10,000 packs will become available for 48 hours, priced at 329 WAX a pop. Each of these packs contains one unique Nifty Kid character. All as normal so far, right? Here’s where it gets interesting.
Rather than being pre-minted, each Nifty Kid NFT will be auto-generated upon the opening of a pack by combining a random set of six visual traits taken from six fan-favourite GPK characters – totalling 46,656 possible combinations.
These six visual traits – body, head, eyes, accessories, mouth and hairstyle – are taken from the following Garbage Pail Kids; Adam Bomb, Dead Ted, Mad Mike, Nasty Nick, Tee-vee Stevie and Wrappin Ruth.
All six complete characters (that is, a Nifty Kid NFT with six matching traits) are guaranteed to drop within these 10,000 packs.
The site RareDrop.io has a fantastic combination checker for this drop, whereby you can view every single possible Nifty Kid variation.
I gave this a go, and thought I’d see what a character with one trait from each of these six Garbage Pail Kids would look like.
There’s something real unnerving about this creation – that combination of bugged eyes and lollipop in particular – but I love it!
It’s fantastic to see GPK back on WAX, and this unique mix-and-match concept will surely be the talk of the chain when it drops.
The six complete Garbage Pail Kids will likely become highly sought-after, so whether you’re a huge GPK fan, an NFT collector chasing the rarest of the rare, or if you’re just looking to create a Nifty Kid to call your own, this drop has something for everyone!
