Posting up this Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021, I’ve painted a variety of Max Toy Company original sofubi figures in micro runs ( meaning x10 pieces or less !). Max Toy Club members have been given first access but don’t worry there’s remaining figures to choose from ! All items available will post to our web store: www.maxtoyco.com at a random time. Appreciate the support and good luck !
Here’s a peek at what’s on offer:
Kaiju Axron on Flesh Sofubi
Mecha Nekoron on clear yellow sofubi
Kaiju TriPus on clear dark blue sofubi
Kaiju Eyezon on white sofubi
Kaiju TriPasu on white sofubi ( now sold out !)
Mini Kaiju Eyezon cast in clear sofubi with glow guts
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 !
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 !
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 !
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 !
Saturday, June 15th, 2019 at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, California, Max Toys and Mark Nagata will have a table and participate in a painting demo and rare toy talk round table ! And, at 1pm come meet the Legendary Martial Artist from many movies and TV appearances Man Of Many Weapons Gerald Okamura at the Max Toy table, 1pm ! Details below !
See the museums web site for full details and a list of dealers and other special events during Kaiju Con ! Plus, it’s a great time to visit, “Kaiju vs Heroes” exhibit before it’s 10 month long run comes to an end on July 7th, 2019.
Some of our exclusives and customs below we are bringing to Kaiju Con !!!
There’s more but I don’t have the energy to post more ;-P See you there and any stuff that doesn’t sell I’ll post up next week 😉
These stunning FrankenMerrick soft vinyl figures are made by Miscreation Toys / Jeremi Rimel. The details are super impressive and to be honest the challenge for me was to paint them to show off these details but not lose the anatomy or over all look of the figure ( if that makes sense). I had great fun with each and as you see, there are now 3 different versions in our web store ! First up, is FrankenMerrick in his Black and White movie appearance ( as imagined !)
The second one, is FrankenMerrick in a more colorful mood …
Unlike the usual monster figures I do, the challenge for me was to hopefully bring a my metallic colors to this figure, without over doing it. I think I accomplished this while still letting the elegance of Amy’s design show through.
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 !
