Ron and his McBuddy rule Hong Kong with an iron fist and an army of undead Charlie Browns...

Making the rounds in old Hong Kong this week was Supertouch's own RON ENGLISH who hit up the island for the official debut of two of his new toy projects: his ABRAHAM OBAMA bust and SMILE figure. First up was his "Smile" reception at GARAGEWORKS GALLERY, where faithful HK hipsters turned up in droves to get a close-up glimpse at the New Jersey bad boy's brand-new vinyl reworking of old Charlie Brown's familiar grille. Moving along, it was off to the MINDSTYLE TOYS world HQ for the debut of Ronnie's timely Abraham Obama bust, a figure that must surely have HK residents scratching their heads in bewilderment. Dropping worldwide just in time for inauguration day, American fans can get ahold of the very elusive silver colorway exclusively at LA's hipster hotspot BARRACUDA, while supplies last. HAVE A LOOK:
