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 !

Thank you SO much to everyone who bought something as well to just the nice notes sent along ! Max has really grown, not only as a person but also as a artist and toy painter !

Below are some of Max’s customs, which are now sold !

Max Toy Updates

Hi Max Toy Fans !
Let’s start with the not great news … obviously everyone is aware of the virus and with much discussion with my family, i have decided to cancel any con attendance for the next few months.. This includes the upcoming Creature Bazaar in Glendale ;-(
Super bummed.
Besides taking care of my 93 year old mother, I am also in the “elderly” group of over 50+ year olds to avoid crowds (I don’t know how I made it to that group ! )
I wish everyone to stay healthy and well out there !
I do have some customs and new releases coming up this month ( info below ) .. so hopefully you guys are able to support me that way.
In fact, for all Artists out there,  I hope you can continue to support them.. in any way you can…
Your Kaiju Pal,
Mark
===========================
Updates:
This weekend, check out Clutter Gallery show, Kaiju Kanibal show, I have two classic TriPus ( which by the way, I’m on the last box of them.. so once they are gone that’s it folks ! ) Contact them for mailing list and buying info.
Tease for a new Ultraman ;-), yes this month ! Club members get first chance at them !
Later this month, have a special Eyezon for Outre Gallery and their Yokai Yokai show.
Contact them for more info ! Outre Gallery Australia
July – Major Project dropping from Max Toy Company for USA and Japan ! You guys won’t believe it ! And, look for something different in August 2020 in the planning ;-P
Pre Order Grey Glitter Ultraman’s should be done any day now… with shipping later this month ! Pre Order Glow Ultraman’s are in process. Thank you again for those orders… we will update them soon !
and, Trixie-Lu is coming !!!

Mark Nagata x Diemouse Kaiju customs

Been working hard on these x7 Diemouse Kaiju figures ! Each is one of a kind and painted by Mark Nagata. Signed and dated and numbered 1/1 on the feet. Currently they are being offered to Max Toy club members. Remaining pieces will post up on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2018 via our web store – https://www.maxtoyco.com/shop_cat.php

at a random time. These will be sold, randomly, so you can not choose which one you may want. But, in my opinion, they all look great  ;-P

And, a few, feature a baby doll type of middle eye, that closes when you lay the figure down  😉 All were painted with Monster Kolor paints !

Good luck !
