Chris Brown to release collectible toys line

Controversial R&B star Chris Brown appears to be a big kid at heart.

The 22-year-old has teamed up with new business partner and artist Ron English to release a new line of toys, according to Billboard.

The duo’s exclusive collection of limited-edition toys and original art sculptures - which they're selling through a company they've dubbed Dum English - will go on sale in Los Angeles on May 2.

The venture is an extension of Brown’s MechanicalDummy blog/lifestyle site which showcases his personal street art as well as the art of other up-and-comers.

And there appear to be price points for everyone: A toy necklace reportedly retails for $75, while a life-size fiberglass sculpture costs $20,000.

But hurry - there are reportedly only 1,000 pieces available in the limited-edition toy series, and 20 pieces of the fiberglass sculpture.

Brown, who’s said to be wrapping up work on his fifth studio album, “Fortune," commended English’s artistic vision in a statement: "Ron has to be the most creative, 'out there' artist. His works is so precise but at the same time so unorthodox."

  8. CHRIS BROWN IS A SELF APPOINTED RACIAL STEREOTYPE

    Dum English sums it up nicely. Maybe his woman beating buck teeth will be able to utter some sentence in comprehensible English one day. He is an Illiterate ghetto monkey who dances like an illiterate ghetto monkey and beats women like an illiterate ghetto monkey. I hope his mother is hanging her head in profound shame at the monstrosity of a human being she has reared. I hope he dies a horrible and anguished death. He deserves nothing less.

    Is it acceptable for a woman to pull off her high heel shoe and beat a man in the head while the man is driving? Why aren't people condemning the woman that beat the man in the head with her shoe?

    We beat Polanski mercilessly on here on multiple different occasions. Him and Mel Gibson make for great punching bags. Much like Rihanna literally was for Chris. And by now bashing Chris, in print, is pretty old sport, still fun though.

    Some of you would like to claim he's irrelevant – just that you can't get enough of him. Might you guys have issues – maybe not? – just wouldn't mind watching Polanski(raped a 13yr old girl) movies, Mickey Rourke, ex-light-heavyweight boxer who beat wife Carre Otis, Sean Penn who beat Madonna.
    Oh no, it's Chris Brown..forget serial killers, just bash him(the new sport i guess)

    I don't think these are collectable. Somebody would have to actually want these things for that name to work...

    He should market them to five year olds, so he can be among his intellectual contemporaries.

    Ron English has just lost all credibility as an artist. Too bad – I USED to like his work.

      Accessories for the figures include a tire-iron, a clump of nappy hair that fits right into his hand, and a warrant for his arrest.

      So will any of these figures include a spring-operated function in the waist that allows it to have super-slapping action?
