See the museums web site for full details and a list of dealers and other special events during Kaiju Con ! Plus, it’s a great time to visit, “Kaiju vs Heroes” exhibit before it’s 10 month long run comes to an end on July 7th, 2019.
Some of our exclusives and customs below we are bringing to Kaiju Con !!!
There’s more but I don’t have the energy to post more ;-P See you there and any stuff that doesn’t sell I’ll post up next week 😉
Randomly posting up for sale, customs .. most have sold.. but more to be posted in the next week. Best to follow my Instagram @maxtoyco for peeks on what I’m working on ! Plus, will have a few more fully painted Sofubi-man posted as well !
Been working hard on these x7 Diemouse Kaiju figures ! Each is one of a kind and painted by Mark Nagata. Signed and dated and numbered 1/1 on the feet. Currently they are being offered to Max Toy club members. Remaining pieces will post up on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2018 via our web store – https://www.maxtoyco.com/shop_cat.php
at a random time. These will be sold, randomly, so you can not choose which one you may want. But, in my opinion, they all look great ;-P
And, a few, feature a baby doll type of middle eye, that closes when you lay the figure down 😉 All were painted with Monster Kolor paints !
Fantastic Dcon ! Thank you for all the kind words and support !! I’m a bit overwhelmed by all the fans who came up to say “Hello” and who saw the “Kaiju vs Heroes” exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum !! When we were planning the museum exhibit, it was my hope that if anything my story would inspire people to pursue their dreams and that you can do it !
We sold out of almost everything we brought … have only x3 Kanegon and x3 glow Otters so will post them later today. A few customs will post as well 😉
The bigger Dcon venue allowed for more room for the crowds which was nice and of course more vendors. I wish I had more time to just wander the con and didn’t get to connect with everyone I wanted too .. but we’ll be back next year 😉 So many talented artists at the show .. I highly recommend attending next year if you can.
Here’s a few misc pictures with my booth mates Sunguts, Blobpus, DaiKaiju Salon ( Kobeni-chan), Suzuki and Doug Hardy ( Cat Magic Toys ) !
Visited the exhibit with the Japan crew 😉
Below: We had the honor of having the Legendary Martial Artist and Actor, Gerald Okamura at our booth. We sold out of the first Man of Many Weapons Sofubi and had a great signing event !
