Max Toys at Dcon 2017
Hi Max Toy Fans !
Phew … ! I painted a mix of micro runs of our most popular figures, a few factory paints and of course one of a kind painted figures for Dcon.
I’m packed and ready to drive down to Dcon ! Excited to be setting up there at Table TE17 ๐Ÿ˜‰ Come say Hello to Max and Myself !
As many of you may know, I have not set up at the USA show in over 9 years !
Anyways, I’m bring all the above plus a ton of smaller one offs and some Max Toy stock. A good time to see the stuff up close and of course buy ;-P
Also have stuff from Jay222, Javier Jimenez and Doug Hardy. Doug will also be the booth both days, and selling his brand new resin, Witch Cat Lulu ! Very cute hand cast and painted figure so check her out !
By the way, everything is first come, first served .. but on the Tiger Boss / Office cats it’s one of each type per person, per order.
I will have a test shot of our newest figure, Sofubi-man on display as well !! My tribute to the men & women who cast these figures in Japan. This figure will release very soon, so stay tuned for more details.
Also, excited to be finally revealing publicly at Dcon, my Japanese toy collection / art show at the Japanese American National Museum in Sept 2018 !!
Titled; Kaiju vs Heroes – Mark Nagata’s Journey through the World of Japanese Toys
I’ve worked on this for over 2 years now and we are coming down to the final months before the opening. Much more info as we get closer and some cool stuff planned so stay tuned !
Thanks so much for the support !
Your Kaiju Pal,
Mark

Max Toy Updates

A bunch of updates … so here we go !

Tomorrow, Friday, May 12, 2017ย  at a random time I will be posting up x4, one of a kind @planetxasia Mecha Goliathon ! I’ll only tease the figures below… but i spent awhile on each one and think they represent some of my best work to date. The figure, itself, is a joy to work with and you should see what other Kaiju they are coming out with. In any case, check the Max Toy web store and good luck !

New TriPus colorway almost done .. this one on Clear sofubi ! I’ll post them up for sale very soon … well, as soon as they ship from Tokyo ;-P

Our newest Kaiju, “Crusher G”, test shot is shown above .. makes his debut at Design Festa Tokyo this month and not to worry we will be offering these in the USA soon ! This figure ( half Gorilla, half robot) goes along nicely with our Mecha Dino SaiKobi ! Sculpt by Pico Pico , of course !

We’ve also gone back to the vaults and made new molds for TriPasu ! First release is very soon, so keep watch !

Here’s one of two MadBalls I painted for the upcoming MyPlasticHeart / Jim Groman show. Full details via the store site: https://www.myplasticheart.com/

Some fantastic work being posted so check out the show soon !

 

Jay222 X Nagata Horror Cats customs

I’ve been a long time admirer of Artist Jay222‘s work. To be honest, I think he deserves a much wider recognition in this Toy World. The following 7 customs he’s applied his unique sculpts to, are a prime example of his talents.ย  Jay took several soft vinyl Max Toy Cats and went to town on them ! I think as you will see below, his “new” creations are Amazing ! While I applied paint to them, I tried my best to not distract from Jay’s hand sculpted details.

Welcome to our Horror Cats Collection ๐Ÿ˜‰

Available figures now in the Max Toy Company web store :

http://www.maxtoyco.com/shop_cat.php?cat=7

And here’s how they looked just with Jay’s raw sculpts on them.

Chubz the Cat by Jay222 x Max Toy

Our latest Kaiju Cat is now on sale here : http://www.maxtoyco.com/shop_item.php?id=1165

Designed and sculpted by our good buddy and super talented artist Jay222 !! As usual we have it cast in soft vinyl and Made in Japan. This first release is a blue / purple color .. really hard for me to color balance so excuse the pics below. Also we ran out of time so the header card is not ready ;-P

But feast your eyes on this chubby kitty who can’t stop eating cities as snacks !

New TriPus & Chubz the Cat

Been a busy week here at Max Toy ! First we have unveiled two new sofubi kaiju ! Sculpted & redesigned by PicoPico is our brand new Kaiju TriPus !

2016-09-06-15-49-072016-09-06-16-14-24ย 2016-09-06-15-49-11

tripus3ways

you can transform Tripus by gently heating the head, popping off the eye and turning head over, plugging it back into the body and replacing eye into the open hole. Really cool way to make him look different !trisculpt72

Above is the test shot in vinyl (left side) and the original sculpt by Pico Pico (right side)

And the new header card painting for the package by Mark Nagata ๐Ÿ˜‰
