Hi Max Toy Fans !
One of the cool things to come out of my recent trip to Shanghai was meeting many Chinese toy makers. One of them, called Haga , showed me his new figure called HooDoo.
Today, I’m happy to say I’ve painted x5 unique, customs of HooDoo and now offer them to you 😉
Now posted up here’s the direct links to our web store:
Painted with Monster Kolor paints and over mostly clear soft vinyl, but there’s a couple of Milky White vinyl ones too.
Thank you again for the support and supporting this new generation of Monster Toy makers 😉
If you have not heard already, Whitney Kerr ( Kirby & Whitney of Rotofugi ) has past away after a courageous battle with cancer. I’m not very good at expressing my feelings ( and rarely do so online) but I wanted to say my family and I express our deepest condolences to Kirby & Laszlo and their family. Besides being early art toy / kaiju toys supporters ( from my super7 days) they both did not hesitate to help support Max Toys from day one. I’ll remember her quick, dry wit and no bullshit answers 😉
The family requests donations to the Whitney Kerr Memorial Fund (to be used for Laszlo’s education) in lieu of flowers:
Whitney Kerr Memorial Fund
Bank of the Ozarks
608 East Page Avenue
Malvern, AR 72104
Or PayPal to email@example.com, please note that it is for the Whitney Kerr Memorial Fund.

A bunch of Max Toy Updates ! For up to the minute updates please follow my Instagram: @maxtoyco !
Yo-san will be representing Max Toys at the upcoming Thailand Toys Expo. Here’s the flyer !
Also look for Daniel Yu ( @thedanielyu ) and the first painted release of Lunar Cat at the Thailand show !
And also for Thailand, I painted these three custom Si Batu Cave Dudes for @kongandri !
Sorry, I will not be there this year but i appreciate your support for these fine artists !
I’m off to Shanghai, we have a booth( CO2 ) at this huge show called Shanghai Toy Show (STS). Our booth mates include Jay222 and Aaron Arel of UhOh Toys.
The prep for this was pretty grueling for me … before I started a fellow artist told me to prepare up to x500 pieces (!!) I mostly paint my figures, so there’s really no way I could do this … but i think I managed to paint a nice selection of micro runs ( pic above ) and some one offs.
I won’t be updating or posting at all while I’m gone because from China, because no Facebook / Instagram ;-P
Well, you can if you do some tech stuff, but I just didn’t want to go thru all the steps, so I won’t 😉
And, if you buy anything from our site starting today, April 1st thru April 9th, we will not be shipping till April 10th ;-P
I’ll make a post once I get back, so wish me luck in bring back an empty suit case 😉
