Kickstarter: Revenge of SUCKLE Mini Figures

DKE Toys is back with another Kickstarter campaign. They are attempting to raise funds to produce the Revenge of SUCKLE Mini Figure Series. Sculpted by George Gaspar, there will be 10 new faces added to the 3.75-inch tall figure line: Sucklord 75, Sucklord 61, Star Chump, Mary Paper$, Gay Energon, Douchebot, Crystal Pharoah, Wrecked Souls of Forgotten War, Chronos, and Bionic Carrot.

There are various funding levels, with the Basic Set available at the $25.00 level. The $1,2500 level features a whole lot of stuff...there might even be a hug from Dov in there. However, the project will only be funded if at least $24,250.00 is pledged by Friday, December 5th 2014 at 12:00 AM ET.

SUCKLE-Revenge

Just what are the Sucklord’s Suckpanels

Sucklord-Suckpanel

Listen...I usually "get" what the Sucklord is doing with most of his limited edition special releases. But these "Suckpanel" things...I must be missing something. Take, for example, the image above. Basically, it looks like a bag of eaten Lay's potato chips has been glued to a piece of plywood with an old Kenner Star Wars Bossk figure attached to it in a clear blister. And it sold for $150.00.

Now, I looked on eBay, and it appears that a loose Bossk figure can be purchased for about $4.00 (weapon included). So you're looking at a 3750% markup. I guess you could include the $1.49 bag of chips as well as glue, plywood, and the plastic blister. But you understand what I'm getting at.

Some of the Suckpanel releases feature mashups - one with Darth Vader's head on Dr Mindbender's body. But they're mostly old Star Wars figures on old magazine advertisements...some quite disturbing.

I just don't understand them. Is it art? Is it a money grab? Is there something I'm missing?
