Max Toy x Tsuburaya Pro Ultra Kaiju series

Making their debut at the upcoming Superfest show in Tokyo, Japan is our new Kaiju Soko ( Kaiju Warehouse ) sofubi series. The warehouse refers to the old place that Tsuburaya Pro use to house all their Kaiju and Hero suits. Figures sculpted by Pico Pico, with Production by Yo-san !

Let side is Sadlar from Ultraman Jack ( Japan sales only ), while the right side is Taisho from Ultraman Leo ( sales in the USA soon ). Both figures will debut at Superfest.

We will be selling Kaiju Taisho in the USA, very soon … so stay tuned !

Had the honor to paint the header car art as well for this series. I’ll post a more indepth step by step images for this painting in the next few days. I had a bit of a time crunch and each step had to be approved along the way … but was happy with the finished result 😉

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 !
