Though Chris Brown’s name remains tarnished with the incident of violence he had with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, this time he makes the headlines due to his limited edition collectibles and toy range, launched in joint partnership with Ron English. The whole series, christened ‘Dum English’ will actually be unveiled for everyone to see on May2, 2012 in Los Angeles. This idea of jointly producing these collectible toys emerge after Chris decided to diversify his venture, mechanicaldummy.com, and include unique products which would feature on his blog before anyone else can get the news of it. However, with the charitable angle to it, Chris Brown would definitely earn brownie points amongst those who took a disliking to him after the ugly incident with Rihanna in the recent past.

Dum English limited edition toy series

In the first set of offerings which will be showcased in Los Angeles, at the Corey Helford Gallery, there will be a toy necklace chain worth $75, a 10-inch vinyl figure worth $140, and the most premium offering which will be a $20,000 fiberglass sculpture . While the toys will be a limited edition offering of 1000 units in all, the 4-foot tall sculpture will be available in a series of only 20 pieces, making it truly exclusive and cherished. One even gets a feeling that, that auction event will later go gaga over collecting these toys, and collectors raising the bar higher for the winning bid for them!

Other than the 2 artists, there is the significant participation of vinyl toy Production Company called Made by Monsters, and the sculpture manufacturer Garageworks Industries, who have undertaken the task of recreating the collectibles to perfection. Hopefully, the end result will indeed be a positive one, as the hoard of collectors will not just the brand name, but also the quality the companies are known for, and the fund raised goes to Symphonic Love Foundation owned by Chris Brown. They work in the areas of creating a resource base to rehabilitate women and children’s’ artistic abilities all over again.
