Suckadelic Mary Papers figure x BeerLao tasting

So in my efforts to bring you some of the roads less traveled in the NYC designer toy scene, this evening I ventured down to East Houston street to the Whole Foods beer store. The Sucklord was lending his star appeal to the Beerlao tasting by selling his new Mary Papers figure, and indeed Mary showed up in person!

Really, I do think this may be the first time Whole Foods has hosted a designer toy release... good for you man!
I'm gonna release our next Tenacious exclusive in the cheese department.

After the tasting was over we all headed back to the Sucklair.
Below is King Abnon, the Sucklord's apprentice, showing me his workstation:

If you can believe it, couple of German tourists with thing for designer toys read about the BeerLao tasting/Mary Papers release, and they stopped in & got invited back to the Suckshop! See how much more fun it can be when you do a little research before traveling to a new city? This couple got free beer and a backstage tour of NYC's most notorious toy workshop!

Here's Mary Papers, complete with officially bootlegged BeerLao packaging!
You'll be able to purchase one of these super-limited figures in the Suckadelic toy section or in the SuckStore:

And, not so coincidentally, I am right now listening to the funkiest hot mess of spaced-out breakbeats I've ever heard, care of Suckadelic Rekids' Star Wars Breakbeats album.

Produced by that intergalactic space genius, the Sucklord himself! It's actually a really chill, funked-out album, full of Star Wars samples and sound effects. Any SW freak would love it, it's fun to try to name the character or scene that the sample is taken from!
Track 3, Trials of a Jedi, is pretty badass, with a 70s funk backbeat and some sweet Skywalker & Vader samples...

Thanks to Sucklord for inviting me back to the Suckshop, it was really cool to see where the magick happens!
