I’m still painting away, but here’s some of what we will have at our Dcon booth 832 this year ! We will be next to our buddies Sunguts / Blobpus and Cat Magic Toys !

See you all soon and thank you for the support !

Custom painted by Mark Nagata, SUM Kaiju from PlanetX Asia x Bob Conge ! This sucker is huge, glow in dark and lights up !

 

 

above and below, special “Real Type” customs by Mark Nagata. These take much longer than the other customs but also allow for a more “real” look to them  😉

 

There’s more I’m bringing .. but this will give you an idea  😉

Dcon Nov 16-18th – Max Toy Booth 832 Updates

Hi Folks, it’s almost that time of the year .. Dcon ! It will be our second year, and we’ve got a ton of great exclusives, special toy debut and celebrity signing with Master Martial Artist Gerald Okamura ( Man of Many Weapons ! ) and more !

This year we are in the same row as Sunguts / Blobpus, and Cat Magic Toys ! Plus, Yo-san will be making his first appearance at a USA toy show  ;-P This will prove, we are indeed two separate people !!

Here’s a few items we are bringing … but there’s more, which we will post soon ! We will do our best to save some items for Saturday as I don’t want everything selling out on Friday (Preview night).

 

 

More exclusives to post in a few days !!!

Shanghai Toy Show 2018 Max Toy Booth CO2

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 😉

Happy Holidays from Max Toy Company 2017

Thank you Everyone for your kind words and support of Max Toy Company ! As we enter our Lucky 13th year, 2018 is already booked ;-P Look for new toy projects, conventions and in September 2018 at the Japanese American National Museum, Kaiju vs Heroes – Mark Nagata’s Journey through the World of Japanese Toys (!) I’m co-curating the show with Maria Kwong ( http://www.latdamuseum.org/ ) More info coming in the new year so stay tuned and see you there !

Max Toy Updates

Just some random updates since Dcon and look for a new Sillyamnder for sale next week !

Thank you for a most awesome Dcon ! We had an amazing response and will be back next year for sure  😉 I wanted to also thank everyone who came up to me to just say “Hello”  or give a kind compliment … this was the best part of the show !

Set up with booth mate Doug Hardy ! Doug also was selling his Witch Cat LuLu figure !

Max ready to go as the doors open … have no idea at this point if we’ll sell anything !

In the midst of the toy frenzy buying madness, the most famous cartoonist Thien Pham ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjvLgLvGZiQ ) surprised us with a gift… a box of Howlin Rays chicken sandwich. To be honest, I’ve never heard of it but a random guy saw the box and dashed over and told us it’s a 2 hour wait to get a box and in fact he’d never even seen the box so he had to take a picture of it  ;-P Thien did warn us it might be “hot” … Later, Max really wanted to try it but we aren’t really use to spicy foods, so i went first. Lets just say while the flavor was great I don’t think I’ve ever eaten anything this “hot” and my mouth was on FIRE 😉 I told Max he’d better not try it, though he did later and had the same reaction, haha …

Good friend Mike Minjares stopped by … with some good Car stories 😉

Photographer Brian McCarty ( http://brianmccarty.com/ ) and LATDA museum (A 10 year reunion,  ) / Japanese American National Museum (http://www.janm.org/) store director Maria Kwong and I reunite after 10 years and the Beyond Ultraman exhibit. I can’t say enough good things about Maria and Brian, such great people !

 

 

The show was packed both days and we nearly sold out of everything we brought ;-O Only a few items remain, which are now in the max toy web store. Next year the show moves to a bigger venue in Anaheim ( across from Disneyland ) so we will see you all there for 3 days !

==================

Finished the last of the @Kaiju_One, Trinity figures for a lucky collector ( below )

By the way, everything is first come, first served .. but on the Tiger Boss / Office cats it’s one of each type per person, per order.
I will have a test shot of our newest figure, Sofubi-man on display as well !! My tribute to the men & women who cast these figures in Japan. This figure will release very soon, so stay tuned for more details.
Also, excited to be finally revealing publicly at Dcon, my Japanese toy collection / art show at the Japanese American National Museum in Sept 2018 !!
