Well you’d better act fast, the newest Hello Kitty Kaiju is up for order via EMP museum’s web store !!!!!
Its exclusive to them, so no, I don’t have any to sell, sorry ! By the way, if you are in the Seattle area, the EMP museum is a very cool place to visit .. not to mention the Japanese American National Museum Hello Kitty exhibit now running there, but my personal favs are in the basement, tons of original Sci Fi and Horror props .. like the original Alien suit ;-O
Good luck !
Hi All ! A few updates, I’m, sorry the Wonderfest post is late ( the event is over and the items have sold ). This time we sold all, one day license items, meaning there were no sales outside the event. Mostly from GeGeGe-No-Kitaro and bottom right, Chiyo-chan from Azumanga Daioh.
And coming very soon Max Toy X Monster Boogie, we will release x10 different gachapon style figure series, called Gacha-Max ! Don’t worry I have order them for USA 😉 Most sculpted by Makino-san ( TTToys ) and Ozawa-san ( One eyed cat and octopus ). More details soon !
Here’s my final acrylic painting for the Feb 5th, 2016 Pixel Hearts show at Gallery1988 (west), curated by Chogrin !
Everyone is working on these pre cut out wood Pixel Hearts. This is an original acrylic painting, not a print by Mark Nagata 😉
Contact the gallery for purchasing info !
Here’s a quick look at in progress pics of my painting for Gallery1988 (west) Pixel Hearts show, curated by Chogrin ! Everyone is working on these pre cut out wood Pixel Hearts.
I chose Master Chief from Halo .. well because it’s Max’s favorite game (or was it Destiny ?) I probably shouldn’t say this, but I don’t play video games and only did a bit back in the 80s ;-P Maybe I should have done a Coleco game character 😉
I can’t show the final, just yet 😉 But I think next week I can .. more info about the show will be posted too. FYI – new GID tanks landing very soon !
Happy Kaiju Holidays everyone ! 😉
All orders placed today thru January 1st, 2016 will ship on or after January 2nd, 2016.
New Kaiju Cat Nyagira mini sized soft vinyl (sofubi) figure now in the Max Toy web store. This was just released at the Design Festa show in Tokyo, Japan, last weekend. We only have a few left 😉
Meow ! Also for those who pre ordered the King Negora .. finally they are just about done at the painting factory ;-/ I’m so sorry it’s taken so long, but the delay is industry wide concerning soft vinyl production in Japan, I’m sorry to say.
More Max Toy Kaiju news soon !!
Well I suppose one should not under estimate the power of Hello Kitty Fans 😉 The newest entry in the Hello Kitty Kaiju line quickly sold out at the EMP museum store. I think I can say we are working on making more but a lot of the timing of when the next batch arrives will depend on our factory in Japan. Many thanks to Chris and the store staff as well they had a massive line all night.
Stay tuned for more info and thank you to those who were lucky enough to grab one !
Seattle is of course a stunning city and the EMP museum is located right next to the majestic Space Needle. You can’t tell from this picture but it was pouring rain ;-P
I didn’t take nearly enough pictures but the preview show was totally packed on all levels of the museum. The rain had no affect on the Fans !
By the way, when you go be sure and check out the basement, as it contains some super duper rare movie props from Sci Fi & Horror films … like original Star Wars light sabers and original Big Chap Alien costume (!)
Seriously not fake … all Max and i could do was stare and drool ;-P
I drag Max along to all these shows as much as i can, and you can tell he’s thrilled to see this piece … yet again ! Well, Hello Kitty Kaiju is now owned by Sanrio so I suspect she will see much more of the World than I 😉
The shows up thru May 2016, I highly recommend seeing it, and of course Seattle, too !

Well, the cat’s outta the bag ! … We are happy to show the exclusive Hello Kitty Kaiju figure only via EMP Museum in Seattle ( http://www.empmuseum.org ) ! Each is fully hand cast in soft vinyl ( sofubi ) and hand painted in Japan by Master craftsmen.
The Hello Kitty Supercute exhibit travels from Japanese American National Museum to EMP museum with an opening party Friday night November 13th, 2015 ( I’ll be there 😉 ) and public opening on Saturday.
The figure will be available in their store ( but please check with them in terms of online sales etc ) It’s exclusive to EMP, so I will not have any to sell sorry to say.
Sanrio X Max Toy x EMP museum, with special thanks to JapanLA !! Meow !
Opening tonight, NO GHOST LOGOS, a tribute to the Ghostbusters logo and the man behind it, Michael C. Gross. Curated by the ever busy Chogrin at Creature features gallery.
Here’s my 80s chrome style logo .. with photoshop help by Max 😉 I believe all the logos are printed on wood, with proceeds benefiting a Cancer charity. Check it out !
