Kit-basher extraordinaire, The Super Sucklord, is back sucking it again with S.U.C.K.L.E. Series 2, right now on Kickstarter. Series 2 is a set of ten monochromatic keshi minifigures inspired by The Sucklord's bootlegs and hilarious Toy Lords of Chinatown series from Youtube. Sculpted by George Gaspar and co-produced and distributed by DKE Toys, these goofy guys are in solid hands.
There are only few people in the art toy scene that will equally attract everyone's attention and then split them between fans and people, well, who just think he sucks. I would guess it all stems from his bootleg roots, which is something I won't touch upon here, but maybe it's his tongue-in-cheek ultra-jerk Sucklord character. I personally love the guy, having only S.U.C.K.L.E. Series 1 of his toys, but I've seen Toy Lords and what may be every recorded appearance online, including his whack at Work of Art.
There is something admirable about a man who is dedicated to everything he does, even if it sucks. Many of us have a lot of wild and crazy ambitions, in hundreds of different directions. We can only hope to be as bold as him.
On to the series, the minifigures look great, and personally, I'm really looking forward to the Gay Energon one. One thing that's a little weird, and haven't really figured out is that the Sucklord "bootleg dunny" minifigure is pictured on the project's page, but not included. I'm not sure why, but I'll update this post when I do. My guess is that it's likely a stretch goal that sneaked in the pictures and videos.
Right now, backers of the project get to enjoy the benefits of getting the flesh and clear variants, with the clear one being a Kickstarter exclusive. There is still plenty of time to jump aboard this crazy one. As of this post, there is 25 days still left, and it will be looking to reach it's goal by December 5th, so get on it!
