Chris Brown launching collectable toy line

R&B star Chris Brown is launching a new line of collectable toys.

The Kiss Kiss singer, has teamed up with artist Ron English to create a limited edition set of figures and sculptures, called Dum English.

The toys will launch in Los Angeles on 2 May (12), according to Billboard.com.

The venture is an offshoot of the singer's MechanicalDummy.com blog that also houses his own street art and that of other budding artists.

Announcing the new line, Brown says, "Ron has to be the most creative, out there artist. His work is so precise but at the same time so unorthodox."
