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
Sofubi-man cast in flesh sofubi
Sorry for the lack of updates, we’ve had a series of nice ( and Sold Out ) toy releases from Tsuburaya Productions Ultraman and Go Nagai / Dynamic Pro Mazinger Z figures ! BY the way, ALL Pre Order for the Mazinger Z figure are now shipped. This particular colorway is now sold out. Look for a few more glows and hopefully a Glitter version very soon !
Best to sign up to our mailing list or follow me on Instagram @maxtoyco for daily updates and what not… here’s a update on our new Eyezon project !
Shin Eyezon project is now in the iron mold stage in Tokyo ! Expertly sculpted by Beth Graves – http://www.bethgraves.net/
And based on a design by the awesome Sophie Campbell – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophie_Campbell
Takes about 4-6 weeks in this next stage. Once the molds are done than a test pull will be generated to make sure there’s no issues pulling the soft vinyl. From there we’ll get some paint masks made which will take another few weeks. In the meantime working on the header cards with Sophie and soon we will be ready for the first release !
To give you an idea of this new Eyezons size .. here’s the sculpt with his Brothers ( or is it Sisters ?!?)
FYI – The good folks at Holy Mountain Printing will be releasing the sold out clear Ultraman and green Baltan today ! Plus, pick up the latest issue of their magazine WDW3 ( see previous post) and my book “Toy Karma” 😉
2pm Eastern Time release ! Link here:
WDW3 – Issue 2 now up for sale via https://bit.ly/WDW3HMP !
Honored to be on the back cover and article inside ! Also, note that some of our “sold out” items can be found thru them too .. so go check them out !!!
Other articles, too .. very cool layout, photography and yes it’s a “real” magazine you can buy !
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.

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,
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 !
The plan was to adopt one kitten at our local animal
shelter. We went into room after room looking at
many kitties. Shy ones, orange ones, crazy ones,
old ones … so many, I wish we could adopted them
all ! Finally we went into a room with 2 black cats.
One immediately greeted us and sat in our laps.
The other was more shy and came out for only a
second but quickly retreated to her box. We
decided the more active one was the cat for us and
as we left to fill out the paperwork, she placed her
paw under the door and waved at us.
But, Max said, “How can we just leave the other cat
there by itself ? We have adopt both !!!”
He was right, of course, and we brought both home.
Trixi and Lulu are the best kitties, and have their own
personalities. One is more active, one is shy. One
has big round eyes, one has half moon eyes.
Sometimes they play together, sometimes they have
a disagreement. While we sleep at night and when the
Moon and Stars align, they combine into Trixi-Lu and
have their own adventures !

I want to thank everyone for the support… we just sold out of all our Pre Order Tsuburaya Productions figures ! Posted below, Dark Baltan, Dark Ultraman and Green Fireman !
But, on the Dark Ultraman, we got so many people asking us if we’d do another run.. that I’ve put up a Pre Order for a final second run here:
I will only have it up thru this weekend and than that’s it ! Please read the description about our Pre Orders.
These are now fully sold out !
Below, Only a few pieces left of the following.. “Red Ghost” Gerald Okamura, “Man of Many Weapons” !
And marbled Kaiju Eyezon ! This one turned out very cool ! And because of the process, no two are alike ! Order him here: https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Clear-Red-Ghost-Gerald-Okamura-Man-of-Many-Weapons/1821
Finally, I was surprised our Dolphin Patrol figure got a lot of attention .. and, to be honest, I should have made more ;-P Personally, it’s one of my favorite figures we’ve done, but really hasn’t gotten too much love.. maybe it’s the clear vinyl with paint that did it this time ! He’s sold out.. but we’ll do another one soon !
