Trixi-Lu Black Cats Debut Sells Out !

Trixi-Lu

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 !

Max Toy Updates

Hi Max Toy Fans !
Let’s start with the not great news … obviously everyone is aware of the virus and with much discussion with my family, i have decided to cancel any con attendance for the next few months.. This includes the upcoming Creature Bazaar in Glendale ;-(
Super bummed.
Besides taking care of my 93 year old mother, I am also in the “elderly” group of over 50+ year olds to avoid crowds (I don’t know how I made it to that group ! )
I wish everyone to stay healthy and well out there !
I do have some customs and new releases coming up this month ( info below ) .. so hopefully you guys are able to support me that way.
In fact, for all Artists out there,  I hope you can continue to support them.. in any way you can…
Your Kaiju Pal,
Mark
===========================
Updates:
This weekend, check out Clutter Gallery show, Kaiju Kanibal show, I have two classic TriPus ( which by the way, I’m on the last box of them.. so once they are gone that’s it folks ! ) Contact them for mailing list and buying info.
Tease for a new Ultraman ;-), yes this month ! Club members get first chance at them !
Later this month, have a special Eyezon for Outre Gallery and their Yokai Yokai show.

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 😉
