Right now, I’m sure you’re looking at any GI Joe, Storm Trooper or Transformer action figures you have and thinking “You’d look so much better on a tiny plastic turn table.” SUCKLORD, a local artist, had thought that too, and actually brought it to fruition for a show at Boo-Hooray gallery.
The Suckadelic Art Toy Universe is anything but sucky. It’s an awesome collection of cars spliced with spaceships, neon painted aliens and storm troopers at turntables. Most of the pieces are Star Wars inspired, but it’s pretty bad ass even if you’re not into Star Wars. It’s like walking down the toy aisle of some weird alternate universe where things only come in neon.
