See the below news announcement from DKE Toys and Suckadelic regarding the start of the kickstarter campaign to bring the Super Sucklord’s minifigure line S.U.C.K.L.E. to market. This is one I’m sure I’m funding – so be sure to check it out. There’s also an SDCC teaser that 200 sets in a prototype gray color might be available at Comic-Con 2013 this July.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2012 DKE Toys debuted the first 5 sculpts of The Super Sucklord’s mini figure line, S.U.C.K.L.E. (Simply Unimportant Collectable Kitschy Little Eyesores). Sculpted by George Gaspar/October Toys.
The Super Sucklord and his brand Suckadelic have been making custom resin art “toys” for over 10 years. Classic vintage toys have always been a huge inspiration for his work. S.U.C.K.L.E. pays homage to the classic mid-eighties toy line M.U.S.C.L.E. by Mattel. The figures are roughly the same size and made similarly out of solid color injection molded PVC plastic. Each of the Suckadelic characters will be immortalized in the same mini wrestler style as the original M.U.S.C.L.E. figures and stand approximately 2 inches tall. If you are already a M.U.S.C.L.E. collector these figures should display perfectly with your vintage figures.
Since San Diego Comic-Con 2012, 5 new sculpts were created, bringing the total to 10 unique figures for S.U.C.K.L.E. Series 1.
The ten figures in Series 1 will include: Sucklord 66, Sucklord 43, Sucklord 16, Ass Wipe, Necromancer, Galactic Jerkbag, Ira Tyranusberg, Another Bitch, Vectar, and Gay Empire.
Through this Kickstarter DKE Toys and Suckadelic hope to fund the production line of these figures so that they can be made available to stores around the world and create the basis for a line that can continue to recreate ALL the characters in the Suckadelic universe.
