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 😉

Here’s my pencil (graphite and colored pencils) art “Kaiju vs Mako”, for this weekends curated exhibition by CHOGRIN, celebrating legendary director Guillermo Del Toro, called “In the Name of the Monster, the Robot, and the Bleeding Ghost” at Gallery Nucleus.
I chose to show Mako from Pacific Rim as more of a action superhero 😉 I guess I really wanted her to be like this in the film (haha) … Get on the galleries preview list .. some amazing art will be in the show.
Happy New Year, Max Toy Fans ! Ok, just a bunch of stuff to catch up .. after selling through our first shipment of Sofubi-man, we have another batch on order, so decided to take PRE ORDERS for them here: https://www.maxtoyco.com/shop_item.php?id=1371

And finally, over the Holidays I got this stunning, original pencil art of my cats, Lulu and Trixie !!! Artist and Max Toy fan, Maya Doka is the artist – http://www.mayadoka.com/
I’m sorry my picture does not do the artwork justice .. it’s has some very subtle grey tones in the pencil work and captures the Cats purrfectly 😉
