As with The Trash Pack Series 1, the Series 2 figures come in 5-packs and 12-packs, blind boxed 2-packs, and "fizz bag" 8-pack sets. The fizz bags get dropped into a sink full of water, fizz and froth up, and release some Trashies hidden inside. In reminds me of the old Trash Bag Bunch gimmick, which is cool in a nostalgic kind of way, but I prefer the 5-packs myself (that way every figure gets their own bin). Series 2 is also notable for being the first Trash Pack series to have female characters. You can tell by the bows on their heads (a good ol' fashioned cartoon staple).
Single Trashie bin, Trashie 2-pack, and Trashie 12-pack bin.
The Grubz team is scaled back in size this time, but I still think they're one of the better teams. This time around, the 12-packs come with two special edition "mouldy" Trashies. The mouldy figures are flocked, which suits the gimmick well. Hey, who doesn't love a good flocking?
For this series, the Hard Rubbish is the largest team to collect. And this time, my favorite Trashie of the series is in this group: Septix. I've always been a fan of toilet characters!
(I don't know how this guy counts as "Hard Rubbish". I'd never throw any of my martians out.)
(Mouldy Trashie. How dirty do you need to be to have a mouldy toaster?)
The Bin-Sects are back for another go-around. They're still not one of my favorite teams, but Dung Bug and Bum Bug are great.
The Bin Critters are back too, and they're still pretty boring. I like Bog Hog, but this is still probably my least favorite team in Series 2.
Once again, the Bin Monsters have some of the coolest characters. They also have two Mouldy Trashie characters, since the Bin Critters didn't have any.
(Another one of my faves of this series)
TRASH BAG GOBLIN
The ultra rare team for Series 2 is the Astro Trash, a group of space junk characters with glossy paint. I think they're pretty cool. I just don't get why Garbo Martian doesn't count as part of the Astro Trash team.
(These are both technically the same version, but they look so different I kept them both!)
At the time of this writing, I'm missing five characters from Series 1, but only one from Series 2 (Trash Blaster from the Astro Trash team). Once again, I'm not including the limited edition Trashies, since there's no way I'm lucky enough to find any of them. Series 3 coming up!
