117.3 likes ?!?

At least glad to see lots of Tsuburaya stuff made the listing ! As always, thank you, thank you for the continued support of Max Toys and my past exhibit “Kaiju Vs Heroes” at the Japanese American National Museum. I keep thinking I’m going to slow it down, but we’ve already got a lot of new projects for 2020 ( Including one super HUGE one that I can’t wait to reveal ! ) and a long term one that I think people won’t see coming … as with a lot of stuff I’m not putting all my eggs into one basket so no hints just yet 😉

Ultraman Max Toy x Tsuburaya Productions

????

So, after nearly 46 years after first receiving Bullmark Ultraman figures and Kaiju as Christmas gifts from Japan… the circle is almost complete ! It’s not a secret if you follow me on Instagram ( maxtoyco ), but finally we are about to debut the VERY first sofubi Ultraman figure for sale in the USA ! Fully licensed by Tsuburaya Productions Japan ! Now, you might be saying, “Hey, I been buying Bandai Ultraman figures for many years now !” But, technically those were not officially imported for sale in the USA. After a decades long legal battle ( you can google more about that ) Tsuburaya Productions, the only owner of the Ultraman license can now license the character worldwide. AS a life long Ultraman toy collector, we’ve been trying for many years to be able to make a official Ultraman figure for sale outside of Japan.. so this is a huge deal to me… like I said, circle complete !

First USA debut will be at the upcoming Designer Con ( Dcon ) , Max Toy Booth 630 ! First come, first served ! But, we may limit sales to one person. More photos as we get closer to the event !

Hoots the Owl

Now on sale, our newest character, HOOTS the Owl ! Designed by Mark Nagata, sculpted by Makino-san of TTToys. This was formally in our GachaMaxx series, but now being released fully painted ! Available via our web store !

Splotch Peek !

A peek at something painted up for the Unruly / Sideshow Collectibles booth for Dcon. Besides this cool custom, I’ve been cranking away on many other figures for upcoming shows … but some I can not show, just yet ! Will do my best to post them here.. but again Instagram is the best way to see what I’m up to !

Kaiju vs Heroes exhibit

Kaiju Vs Heroes, my exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles California closes July 7th, 2019. See over 300+ Kaiju toys from the Mark Nagata collection, take a VR tour of Nagata’s studio, play the Eyezon video game and see the short movie about Mark Nagata’s art and toys, “In the Clutches of Kaiju “ !

In addition, at the museum learn more about the internment of Japanese Americans during WW2 and the modern day repercussions.

Also, the past Kaiju Con featured a number of events that were videoed and have been posted up:
