Update on the Toxicity!!!

So, just the other day, I posted about the Toxic Crusaders Poster Book I found (where else) at Goodwill.

I was waffling back and forth about whether to pop open the plastic and take out the poster book. The back cover clinched it for two reasons:  1. There was apparently a story to go along with the posters... and 2. There was an advertisement for the poster book on it's own back. a "Look for this other title we sell" sort of add, but it showed the exact book that was on the front cover...

This seemed too odd to simply be a print error on what was surely a pretty cheap piece of obscure early 90's merchandising. Then looking closer at the spine of the book I let out a gasp of the kind of astonishment that the Wright Brothers must have felt when their first airplane actually swept up into the air instead of crashing to earth.

So I shucked that puppy like an ear of corn and found:

(find out more after the jump!)

There were actually TWO poster books in the bag, pressed together. Not ONE but TWO!!! Earth-shattering!

So this:

Is actually the front cover of this:

And this: 

Is actually the back cover to this: 

"Killemoff Strikes Back!"

What a glorious day for Goodwill Geeks everywhere! 


  1. Ha thats a pretty cool discovery! 2 for the price of 1. I have a bunch of Toxic crusaders stuff but not those poster books. I see them sell from 5 to 10 bucks so no harm in opening them up.

    1. Loved Toxie and the crew, and had a whole set of the toys when I was younger. It was really a bizarre find, to be honest.
