I'm surprised to see the outpouring of love for these figures. I'm probably going to be in the minority here, but unless you buy into the whole sucklord brand - these don't do much for me. I'm not saying it just to have an opposing viewpoint either.
I don't think they're bad, but the OMFG figures seemed like more fun than these. I feel like the figures that are getting added are total after-thoughts too. I could see how the first group kind of went together, but the rest feel like, "Hmmm....what else can we add?"
I think Sucklord is funny, but never considered buying any of his stuff before because of the price. I remember seeing a figure that looked like a mix of Character Building and Lego parts selling for $75 on his site, and it actually sold. It looks like a $40 pledge will get 40 figures shipped to you by the time this is done, so a lot of the love probably comes from the value of what you get out of the KS compared to anything else Sucklord-related.
I think these figures look pretty fun. I'm guessing they are saving some more popular characters in case they do a series 2, because I agree that something like Carrator is an odd choice for a mono mini and the extra characters in general don't fit with the first 10.
I don't plan to chase down every color they put out. I'm looking forward to the 10 carded figures more than anything, and I'll probably be happy to just stick with the loose flesh, GITD, and clear figures that I'll get from my pledge.
