Ron English -- ‘Grin and Bear It’ 100% Be@rbrick

1_17403-1

In conjunction with Zac Pac’s presentation of Ron English’s first Japanese solo show (7.1 – 7.18), ‘Popaganda in Japan’, Medicom will release the 100% ‘Grin and Bear it’ Be@rbrick.  A clever play on the idiom using  Ron’s ‘Grin’ family of characters with skeletal smiles and the ‘Bear’brick, this one features a vaguely Rolling Stone’s-esque tongue logo morphed into a person being swallowed or consumed on the rear of the figure.  The blue + hot pink design seems appropriate for the master of ‘pop’aganda.

The new Be@rbrick will be available at the show in Japan, ZacPac’s site, as well as @ SDCC in the Toy Tokyo book.  The Japanese retail is 1764 yen (~ $22).
