So he's using kickstarter to sell them, not to fund "development".... weird they haven't kicked him off yet.

Not really, according to the kickstarter rules, he's breaking them. he should have used etsy or one of the other kickstarter like systems that is about selling the final product.

yeah, and that's against the new rules and guidelines for kickstarter. there are other places where you can get paid in advanced to make people's dolls and stuff.
