To some he's a shady toy bootlegger to others he's a high end pop artist but to all he's The Sucklord. In a facinating chat with the life long Star Wars fan, The Sucklord reveals how several failed attempts to work officially in Star Wars led to the creation of The Sucklord pop artist.

We talk the history of his infamous Gay Empire figure, selling Star Wars breakbeats on con floors in the mid 90's and his work creating jaw dropping Hasbro New York Toy Fair showroom displays for the Power Of The Force 2 and The Phantom Menace toy lines.

Plus we talk about what defines a bootleg, the art of bootlegging and the facinating world of underground toy subversion.
