The Blot’s way late on this awesome release from the Buff Monster, but what the heck. Better late than never, right? Evidently there’s been some serious toy drama surrounding Buff’s Melty Misfits Cheap Toys, but I’ll let my buddy Matt over at ToyPinionated.com fill you in on that. The Melty Misfits Cheap Toys are Buff’s continuing homage to his beloved Garbage Pail Kids. You see, in 1986 Topps released a set of 10 “Cheap Toys”. Each of the 10 characters were released in 4 common colors, and packaged in a green plastic bag.
Buff Monster took one of those original 10 figures, Double Heather, and had it resculpted from scratch by Mitch Martinez at the size of the original figures (about 1 3/8"), swapping out her original heads for Buff’s Melty Misfits ice cream heads. Buff then had Healeymade cast this new figure in resin in all 4 of the Garbage Pail Kids’ original colors (red, pink, green and blue). This set went on sale a few weeks ago via Buff Monster’s online store and sole out immediately upon release. They retailed for just $15 each or $55 for a set of four figures.
