In part 2 of DBTV's conversation with Ron English, Dudebox asks Ron about his take on the vinyl art toy scene. He talks platform toys, how he approaches them and excitingly for us what he thinks Dudebox's very own platform, The Dude!

"As soon as I saw this, I had 5 mllion ideas of what you can do with it"

~ Ron English on the Dudebox Do It Yourself Dude

"We want to thank Ron for letting us into his world and for showing us around his studio. It was a very inspirational journey for us and we just had to ask Ron to put down one of those 5 million ideas he had for the Dude. Which leads perfectly into the final reveal of our release line up for New York Comic Con. All the pieces seemed to fall into place, watch that video again and you will see a replica dinosaur hanging out in Ron's garden. That's not just any random dinosaur, Ron has a bit of a fascination for them, their origins and what they evolved into. So Ron turned an egg into a dino to create King Monster ~  a homage to those ancient beasts that once roamed this land. Taking a different direction from Ron's more established pop art route, King Monster really is a Terror From A Lost World." - Says Dudebox


King Monster will be released on 11th October 2012 at New York Comic Con and online and
