Max Toy Updates

Sorry guys for the lack of updates here, but for the latest news follow my Instagram: maxtoyco or subscribe to our mailing list on our web page. Lots of drops have already happened and most have fully sold out ( see below) We will have one more drop next week ( I think ) for the year so look out for that.

Pre Orders – All Dark Ultraman orders have shipped ! Thank you for waiting, as it took a bit longer with shipping to get them (roughly 2.5 months).

Also, if you Pre Ordered a Mazinger Z ( normal and wings versions) we got only half of them in stock and those have now shipped out. Obviously if you have not received it, you will be in the next wave ( expected in late Dec/ early Jan. But, I will email you with a offer so please wait for that email.

Awesome pictures they took !!

 

New Eyezon project with Artist Sophie Campbell and Sculptor Beth Graves ! Apologies to Beth, this is a super duper rough to her sculpt, but don’t worry it’s looking Fantastic and I will post more in progress pics very soon !

 

Looking forward, for January 1st, 2021, we have a major drop coming !!! You have been warned  😉

I want to take a moment to say “Thank You” so much for the wonderful support of Max Toys (here and in Japan) for this year ! It’s not been the best of years on many levels, but as we close out, I think a glimmer of hope on the horizon for better days ahead.

As a small business, I appreciate your support, and even if just a kind word. I encourage you to support your favorite independent artists if you can as I know many are struggling during this pandemic.

Happy Holidays !

 

Your Kaiju Pal,

Mark

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 !

Father & Son custom show

Sorry for this VERY late post about the Father & Son custom show .. but we had it and everything Sold Out ! 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 ! He’s starting back to his Art school, so maybe I’ll get him to do a few more customs before his Fall term  😉

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 !!!

Max Toy Dcon Wrap Up 2018

Fantastic Dcon ! Thank you for all the kind words and support !! I’m a bit overwhelmed by all the fans who came up to say “Hello” and who saw the “Kaiju vs Heroes” exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum !! When we were planning the museum exhibit, it was my hope that if anything my story would inspire people to pursue their dreams and that you can do it !

We sold out of almost everything we brought … have only x3 Kanegon and x3 glow Otters so will post them later today. A few customs will post as well 😉

The bigger Dcon venue allowed for more room for the crowds which was nice and of course more vendors. I wish I had more time to just wander the con and didn’t get to connect with everyone I wanted too .. but we’ll be back next year 😉 So many talented artists at the show .. I highly recommend attending next year if you can.

Here’s a few misc pictures with my booth mates Sunguts, Blobpus, DaiKaiju Salon ( Kobeni-chan), Suzuki and Doug Hardy ( Cat Magic Toys ) !

Visited the exhibit with the Japan crew  😉

Below: We had the honor of having the Legendary Martial Artist and Actor, Gerald Okamura at our booth. We sold out of the first Man of Many Weapons Sofubi and had a great signing event ! Look for a new release January 6th, 2019 at the Japanese American National Museum, with another signing and on stage interview with Gerald ! See the museum web site for more details !!
