It's difficult to overstate how massively popular Garbage Pail Kids and professional wrestling were in the 1980s. The GPK license, originally a send-up of the Cabbage Patch Kids craze of the early '80s, has long outlived its source material. The WWE is now the biggest wrestling property on Earth, but it was the 1980s when it really came into its own and broke out into popular culture.
Walmart is carrying a set of exclusive crossover figures merging these two titanic 1980s (and beyond) properties into one collectible line. I, for one, already added the Macho Man figure "Savage Randy" to my cart and will be checking out as soon as I'm done writing this.
GPK x WWE Figures at Walmart
If you buy at least three of these figures, you'll qualify for free shipping, but good luck trying to figure out which three to get. I'm personally a fan of these weird designs, since I grew up with the gross Garbage Pail Kids aesthetic.
The figures should tide you over until WWE 2K22 releases in March, and if it turns out to be a disappointment like the last few games... well, at least you have those weird figures on your shelf.
