Max Toy Updates

Just some random updates since Dcon and look for a new Sillyamnder for sale next week !

Thank you for a most awesome Dcon ! We had an amazing response and will be back next year for sureΒ  πŸ˜‰ I wanted to also thank everyone who came up to me to just say “Hello”Β  or give a kind compliment … this was the best part of the show !

Set up with booth mate Doug Hardy ! Doug also was selling his Witch Cat LuLu figure !

Max ready to go as the doors open … have no idea at this point if we’ll sell anything !

In the midst of the toy frenzy buying madness, the most famous cartoonist Thien Pham ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjvLgLvGZiQ ) surprised us with a gift… a box of Howlin Rays chicken sandwich. To be honest, I’ve never heard of it but a random guy saw the box and dashed over and told us it’s a 2 hour wait to get a box and in fact he’d never even seen the box so he had to take a picture of itΒ  ;-P Thien did warn us it might be “hot” … Later, Max really wanted to try it but we aren’t really use to spicy foods, so i went first. Lets just say while the flavor was great I don’t think I’ve ever eaten anything this “hot” and my mouth was on FIRE πŸ˜‰ I told Max he’d better not try it, though he did later and had the same reaction, haha …

Good friend Mike Minjares stopped by … with some good Car stories πŸ˜‰

Photographer Brian McCarty ( http://brianmccarty.com/ ) and LATDA museum (A 10 year reunion,Β  ) / Japanese American National Museum (http://www.janm.org/) store director Maria Kwong and I reunite after 10 years and the Beyond Ultraman exhibit. I can’t say enough good things about Maria and Brian, such great people !

 

 

The show was packed both days and we nearly sold out of everything we brought ;-O Only a few items remain, which are now in the max toy web store. Next year the show moves to a bigger venue in Anaheim ( across from Disneyland ) so we will see you all there for 3 days !

==================

Finished the last of the @Kaiju_One, Trinity figures for a lucky collector ( below )

Mark Nagata / Max Toy x Marusan TV

Had the pleasure and honor to be interviewed by Marusan President Eiji Kaminaga for his Marusan TV channel while in Tokyo a few days ago. Actually it feels like a week ago with my jet lag ;-P

It’s alway cool ( to me ) to hear history about the vintage Japanese toys I collect. Once the cameras stopped I kept asking more questions too !

Kaminaga-san was kind enough to give me a copy of his book about the history of Marusan toys. It’s all in Japanese, which I can not read ;-( I told him to do a version in English, haha … but he said it might be possible in the future.

To be honest, this mug, is like the best thing I got on this trip (!) It’s like being on the Kaiju Tonight Show !!

During this interview, I revealed something I’ve worked on for about two years now .. what is it ? You have to watch to find out !
