DKE Toys has proudly announced that the 2012 DesignerCon will be rebranded as the Suck-Con… well, not truly, but given the massive line-up of Sucklord specific aspect at the convention they might as well officially change to that name. There will, of course, be The Second Annual Suckathon which will be broadcast live and uncensored by Toy Break from 12 Noon to 5PM. In addition, look out for The Sucklord Retrospective Art Show "A Losing Proposition: 2004-2012,"  an exhibition from the "Secret Archives" showcasing the "incredible Bootleg Timeline" of Suckadelic. Plus in a twisted turn of events, you'll be able to play games at the Suckcarnival… from which you can "win a talking plush Sucklord!"

But possibly the most anticipated aspect will be "The Super Suck Up!," a group art show featuring nothing by customized Sucklord figures. Featuring the talents of: Bill McMullen, Buff Monster, DrilOne, Doktor A., Ferg, Frank Kozik, Jason Freeny (which we're guessing is the piece we previously teased), L'amour Supreme, Luke Chueh, October Toys, Onell Design, Paul Kaiju, Scott Tolleson, Scott Wilkowski, Skinner, and The Sucklord himself. Even more exciting is the fact that each and every artist listed is doing an exclusive edition of 50 hand-painted and handmade copies of their Sucklord design.

Remember: DesignerCon is a one-day only event, taking place on Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 from 9AM to 6PM at the Pasadena Convention Center, 300 East Green St., Pasadena, CA 91101. Admission is $7 at the door.
