The Sucklord has dropped twelve new custom creations showing off some iconic male characters as females (although, who really knows what E.T. was). There's the Interview With a Diva series based on Andy Warhol's Interview magazine and Polyester Schoolgirls, made to look like old store advertisements (I appreciate the Bamberger's one). Available over at Suckadelic, these one-off figures include a 3.75-inch tall Resin Bootleg Action figure under a blister pack and mounted on 8-inch x 10-inch Framed Graphic Card. These are created and signed by The Super Sucklord and sell for $175.00 each.
Furry Feline Creative are looking to Kickstarter to produce two new plush characters - Bull Crap and Holy Crap. Continuing to run with the poop theme, Cheri and Alvin plan to mass produce these nearly 6-inch tall plush characters. The duo - or deuce - will be available at the $25.00 funding level (or $15 for only one number two). Those reward backing levels range all the way up to $500.00 or more.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sunday April 14th 2019 at 7:03PM ET.
As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.

Artist Mike Slobot has released the latest figure into his universe of robot art - it's called Slonkabot 1000-5YL.
I like to think that I am the Willy Wonka of my Slobot universe, so I created a robot character inspired by the Ooompa Loompas in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" - except that my Slonkabots don't make chocolate, they help me make my robot art (The Slobots).
I have been creating my Slobots since 2004 in sculpture, paintings, drawings, and digital. Most of the sculptures are one of a kind works of art using old and new toys, odds and ends from my everyday life, and things that would normally be thrown away. A lot of them have glow-in-the-dark eyes and wires, like the Slonkabot 1000-5YL.
The one-off custom Slonkabot 1000-5YL, which uses a 8-inch KAWS Companion figure, can be purchased for $350.00.
