I remember Igor asking me if a figure made of "porcelain" can be considered a "toy", to which manufacturers like K. Olin tribu, WOULD be considered a toy, a "pricey art-toy" nevertheless, methinks! Further to their earlier release of Kozik's and Steph Cop's characters, Ron English's Mc Supersized is now up for order! Scheduled for a March 30th release at 7pm French time via http://www.kolintribu.com, the 18cm tall figure is priced at 400 Euro (inclusive shipping)
PRODUCT TEXT: "After working with Steph Cop and Frank Kozik, K. Olin tribu pleased to present the result of his collaboration with Mr. RonEnglish: The Mc Supersized Edition Porcelain . Ron English is one of the most prolific artists and recognizable alive today. He is known for hijacking characters and MC Supersized is the emblematic figure of the hit movie "Supersize Me ".
Limoges porcelain, 22 cm high, a chain silver locket with her porcelain decoration plate around the neck, as fate Mc Supersized. 150 copies only In luxury packaging (foam box Sampler slot), with his certificate authenticity, MC Supersized reviewed by K. Olin tribu is one piece that collector will be for all fans of Ron English in worldwide!"
The first parts of the MC Supersized by Ron English were exclusive to the gallery Alain Daudet in Toulouse over a week ago, with gallery snaps available to view online via Facebook. This is a much more interesting form to be embraced by the folks at K. Olin tribe, as with the complexity of each form comes the appreciation of collectors who already possess the "original" figures in vinyl. Unless of course you are looking at a whole new other spectrum of toy-connoisseurs to expand the reach. Nice swish one this.
