Dcon Online 2020 via PopShopLive Code: MAXTOY

Hi All ! Sorry for the lack of updates but lots going on. First if you Pre Ordered second round of Evil Black Ultraman they are still in production, but thank you for waiting should be soon. First wave of Mazingers are on the way so if you pre ordered, I will fill the orders in the order of first order, well, first !

Ok so this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Designer Con will be held online ! Go to their web page, as you need to buy a ticket to join in via PopShopLive app. Once you have your ticket, my store code is : MAXTOY

While it’s for iPhone or iPad, i believe you can still access via a computer and their web site.

Below are a few of the exclusives we have for the event. Again, you have to get your ticket to access this con. If stuff is left over, I will post them early next week to our web store. To be quite honest, I’m not sure how this will go, cause basically I have to sit there in front of the ipad and “sell” the stuff and you know, be engaging ;-P I’ll give it a go, but this is kinda not for people who don’t really like “people” ( haha ) Anyways, I’m willing to give it a go !

Plus not shown, more stuff and customs !

Trixi-Lu Black Cats Debut Sells Out !

Trixi-Lu

The plan was to adopt one kitten at our local animal
shelter. We went into room after room looking at
many kitties. Shy ones, orange ones, crazy ones,
old ones … so many, I wish we could adopted them
all ! Finally we went into a room with 2 black cats.
One immediately greeted us and sat in our laps.
The other was more shy and came out for only a
second but quickly retreated to her box. We
decided the more active one was the cat for us and
as we left to fill out the paperwork, she placed her
paw under the door and waved at us.
But, Max said, “How can we just leave the other cat
there by itself ? We have adopt both !!!”
He was right, of course, and we brought both home.
Trixi and Lulu are the best kitties, and have their own
personalities. One is more active, one is shy. One
has big round eyes, one has half moon eyes.
Sometimes they play together, sometimes they have
a disagreement. While we sleep at night and when the
Moon and Stars align, they combine into Trixi-Lu and
have their own adventures !

Max Toy September Updates

Sorry for the lack of updates but as usual lots of stuff going on 😉 Of course, the best way to see what’s up is to follow our Instagram feed – @maxtoyco

I want to thank everyone for the support… we just sold out of all our Pre Order Tsuburaya Productions figures ! Posted below, Dark Baltan, Dark Ultraman and Green Fireman !

But, on the Dark Ultraman, we got so many people asking us if we’d do another run.. that I’ve put up a Pre Order for a final second run here:

https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Pre-Order-round-2-Ultraman-Dark-version-Tsuburaya-Productions-x-Max-Toy/1822

I will only have it up thru this weekend and than that’s it ! Please read the description about our Pre Orders.

These are now fully sold out !

Below, Only a few pieces left of the following.. “Red Ghost” Gerald Okamura, “Man of Many Weapons” !

And marbled Kaiju Eyezon ! This one turned out very cool ! And because of the process, no two are alike ! Order him here: https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Clear-Red-Ghost-Gerald-Okamura-Man-of-Many-Weapons/1821

Order him here: https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Kaiju-Eyezon-Orange-Yellow-marbled-painted-version/1829

Finally, I was surprised our Dolphin Patrol figure got a lot of attention .. and, to be honest, I should have made more  ;-P Personally, it’s one of my favorite figures we’ve done, but really hasn’t gotten too much love.. maybe it’s the clear vinyl with paint that did it this time ! He’s sold out.. but we’ll do another one soon !
