If anyone was unsure of just how much demand exists for Trash Pack merchandise, they shouldn’t be now. Lewis Eeles, a 10-year-old boy from the UK, recently made a 155-percent profit by selling his limited edition Trash Pack figure.
Eeles found the limited edition Trash Pack figure and certificate when opening up a new series 3 Trash Pack bin. After doing some research, Eeles placed the character, called Grimy Gold, on eBay. In the last seconds of the auction, the character was sold for about $1964.
“It’s incredible how much this limited edition figure sold for, but it shows just how loved and collectable The Trash Pack is,” says Francesca Lisle, from Lisle International. “The hit of the toy line across many continents is truly remarkable, but our other licensees are also having success.”
