Ron English x Made By Monsters – Police Grin at NYCC via Toy Tokyo


Ron English’s Grin is a force to be reckoned with.  Next up is Police Grin, call it Trooper Grin.  Debuting at NYCC from the Toy Tokyo Booth [588/688], the first Star Wars grin looks great from the helmet to the middle-age, overweight stormy concept complete with bulging armor. Police Grin, MC SuperSize and the Cereal Killers are all kindred spirits at the lunch counter.  One hundred of the worldwide edition of 400 pieces will be available at the TT booth for $295.  Who’s got next?  Vader ?
