Ron English will begin his brand-new Make America GRIN Again tour with a Pop-Up exhibition and shop at Luce Loft in San Diego—an easy walk from the convention center—during SDCC weekend. The event will feature art work and editions from Ron English as well as fellow artists Mark Dean Veca, Rob Prior, Madsteez, and Jeremyville.
The Pop-Up shop will feature the debut of Ron English’s eagerly awaited Donald T. Rich Grin vinyl figure in both standard and Black Light Magic editions. Collectors who purchase a Donald T. Rich item will receive a free 11×17” comic book cover poster. The Pop-Up will also be stocked with the full range of exclusive figures and goods from Ron’s East Meets West Asia tour. In addition to toys and products from Ron English, event will also feature secret drops from Mark Dean Veca, Madsteez, Rob Prior and Jeremyville.
The multi-layered event will also feature the debut of Pop Life’s brand-new SFBi Originals brand of toys inspired by vintage Japanese soft vinyl toys—sofubi. Exclusives from several of the artists from the brand’s extensive roster will be released in very limited numbers. There will also be daily raffles for SFBI Originals figures—no purchase necessary.
