The Super Sucklord Kickstarts M.U.S.C.L.E. Style S.U.C.K.L.E. Mini Figures
Miniature monster figures inspired by Mattel/Bandai’s classic M.U.S.C.L.E. line may just be experiencing a renaissance on Kickstarter. Following the success of three waves of OMFG! figures from George Gaspar and October Toys, the famed designer action figure purveyor known as The Sucklord is working to bring his own Gaspar-sculpted S.U.C.K.L.E. (Simply Unimportant Collectible Kitschy Little Eyesores) figures to life.Curious fans needn’t wonder if these toys will manifest in general, as the official S.U.C.K.L.E. KS page has already more than doubled its goal since launching a few days ago. Instead, they can simply marvel at the line’s intentionally offensive characters and ponder their backer level of choice.
Estimated to ship to backers at the $20 level and up by the end of 2013 are 10, 2″ tall, salmon-colored PVC versions of Sucklord 66, Sucklord 43, Sucklord 16, Ass Wipe, Necromancer, Galactic Jerkbag, Ira Tyranusberg, Another B*tch, Vectar, and Gay Empire. Longtime Sucklord fans will recognize many of these character from previous 3.75″ lines assembled from casts of principally kitbashed action figures from a certain Galaxy far, far away, and other familiar realms.
