a statement on consumerism?

For the lighter side of Suckadelic see also, "Suspiria," "Steve," and "Even My Garbage Is Dope"

I would consider this art, rather than a toy, something I could not say about most so-called art toys. I believe these are handmade.

Bizarre!

Freakin' Crazy! Just too many things together that shouldn't be but somehow works so well. Bizzare!

Here's the lowdown on the uniform(s):

The card and header feature a WWII USMC uniform circa 1941-44 and what would be seen in Iwo Jima, an amphibian operation ha ha!

The figure itself looks like a WWI British or WWI US Army tunic. I can't tell if he has boots or puttees ( the leg wraps that Luke Skywalker wore in ANH but worn by all the armies in WWI and the Japanese in WWII). If he has puttees it's WWI era uniform.

The helmet looks like an US Army WWII M1 Steel pot.

This is a super cool figure and the packaging is priceless! It simply brings a smile to my face. A great pick up!

I've also noticed you have changed your usual academic writing style to just "saying it like it is" style. Regardless if it's a new direction to great to read another side of your personality. Cheers!

Oh, Suckadelic...

I can't help but love all the Suckadelic figures. Before I got into Lego, I was trying to build action figures by learning the art of resin casting. The best that popped out was merely popping the armor off McFarlane chicks, sculpting anatomical correctness with Fimo and making one or two busts. ...But then Lego introduced ball joints to their mix.

Sucklord gets it right though... you can't really DO playable action figures strictly in resin! Even the plastic he uses could run into joint issues. Instead, he just jacks up the humor and makes something mostly stationary and wonderfully ridiculous. The saying on the card has a nice Engrish, bootleg feel to it too.

The art on the card uses the stock face of Gillman that's already silly looking but the army fatiques just make it that much more hilarious. Somehow this just looks "right".
Gotta' hunt one of these down on the secondary market at a later time, preferably a glow in the dark one (if he does one like that) like the later release Remco one I used to have was.

Yep! I have a Remco one and

Yep! I have a Remco one and I love it. It took Dave pointing it out explicitly, though, for me to realize this boot is actually based on that Remco! If/When Sucklord does a glow version, I'm all over it...maybe two or three times over! ;)
