The crap they have for sale is total garbage IMO.
I'd pay for actual DLC. Not going to pay for lame hairstyles and crap. Maybe if they released a bunch in a pack sure. One at a time till they nickel and dime me to death **** that my friends ******

I Don't have a problem with paying for download content but 1 ITEM for a buck does seem a little steep. Like the OP mentioned if they release 40 items thats over 100 bucks for a game , Not cool UFG.
Um, you do realize that the DLC comes with several customization items, right? It's not just the character and the kart, but you get access to the separate items used to make them.
Also, while I'm against all the DLC hoarding companies are doing today, and I'm certainly against them intentionally leaving out content, I don't feel this game really skimped us too much. DLC is obviously here to stay, and there's too many people supporting it to really fight it. There's so much customization as is, I can't really complain. Not to mention we are capable of downloading mods that used the DLC, despite not owning the DLC.
The only thing I really feel they skimped us on is themes. I might boycott a clear rip-off, but with MNR, I don't feel like it's a blatant rip-off as I've seen in other games.

I Refuse to purchase anything with their current pricing plan. I Could see paying a buck for a set of items maybe 5-10 or so but a dollar each, NO ON PRINCIPAL ALONE.
You are wrong. It's not one item for a buck. That way of thinking will surely make it seem extremely unfair to pay for DLC.
If you buy the pack with both, for $1.49 you don't JUST get:
1) A character
2) A kart
You actually get:
1) An afro.
2) An afro pick.
3) A disco suit.
4) A gold chain.
5) A van body.
6) A beanbag chair.
7) A graffitti sticker.
You're not just buying the creations; you're also unlocking the additional parts that the creation was made with. I mean, come on, why on Earth do you think they are charging for something everyone else can do, unless they included NEW parts with them?
So for $1.49 you have like 7 more parts. Parts to make awesome things like the A-Team or Mystery Machine van mods that happen to be top mods right now.

If only they spent more time on actually making the game work PROPERLY before spending all that time on creating additional DLC????
Nobody will be purchasing the DLC if nobody is playing the game. UFG should ASAP prioritise fixing all the issues the Community is upset about - Especially the Load Times and the Online problems.
Then there will be more people playing the game for longer = more money for UFG at the end of the day.
They should keep their customers happy so that they can reap the benefits. Their success is in their own hands and is determined by how quickly they can address all the Community's current (very valid) complaints.
I like your way of thinking. "Let's fix everything without having the capital to pay our employees or any of our operating costs!"
No, wait. Your way of thinking sucks.

While on some level, I can understand the frustration with being nickeled-and-dimed to death with certain DLC items, and and some developers surely take advantage of certain "completeist" or "collector" players' desire to own everything, I won't disagree with the concept of having DLC.
In most cases, DLC will add additional depth to the game, such as adding new levels or features that weren't in the original game. Just like LBP, the "dollar" add-ons simply give you a few more options to use in your customization. Take it or leave it.
So the moral of the story is that this is a free country, and nobody is forcing you to buy anything you don't want. If you like the game, then enjoy it. (And I hope you are Canadian, otherwise, you got ripped off paying $65 for the game if it was USD.)

This type of DLC has nothing to do with the game being incomplete. Go away troll.

You don't play a lot of tabletop collectible games, do you?
As a long-time player of games like Magic: The Gathering, Battletech/Mechwarrior, etc... I find your agrument sort of invalid. Purchasing more things to play with is a perfectly acceptable thing, and as a business model, it is a great way to ensure cash flow for future developments. You think that they should keep designing stuff for us out of the goodness of their hearts? Sorry, I don't prescribe to your socialist gaming model. These people do it for a job. Money has to come from somewhere, so unless you want real world ads in the game, expect this and accept this.
Or just play with what was given to you on t he disc for your initial investment.
Here's another good parallel - Legos. Just because you bought the big box of 500 Legos doesn't mean that every time you want more blocks, or new Lego sets are released, that you should get them for free. That is absurd since time and money went into designing those new sets!
In short, check the recent thread in the mods forum, someone posted a "Wahmbulance" kart. Sounds like you need it. Quit your crying!
