Just posted a few new customs for direct sales via the Max Toy web store 😉

Kaiju Eyezon and Alien Argus both painted by Mark Nagata, using Monster Kolor paints.

Each is one of a kind, painted figures and signed on the feet. Both have glossy final coatings and a micro fine glitter you can see in the Sun  😉

Max Toy x HAGA custom kaiju figures

Hi Max Toy Fans !
One of the cool things to come out of my recent trip to Shanghai was meeting many Chinese toy makers. One of them, called Haga , showed me his new figure called HooDoo.
Today, I’m happy to say I’ve painted x5 unique, customs of HooDoo and now offer them to you 😉
Now posted up here’s the direct links to our web store:
Painted with Monster Kolor paints and over mostly clear soft vinyl, but there’s a couple of Milky White vinyl ones too.
Thank you again for the support and supporting this new generation of Monster Toy makers 😉
==================
If you have not heard already, Whitney Kerr ( Kirby & Whitney of Rotofugi ) has past away after a courageous battle with cancer. I’m not very good at expressing my feelings ( and rarely do so online) but I wanted to say my family and I express our deepest condolences to Kirby & Laszlo and their family. Besides being early art toy / kaiju toys supporters ( from my super7 days) they both did not hesitate to help support Max Toys from day one. I’ll remember her quick, dry wit and no bullshit answers 😉
The family requests donations to the Whitney Kerr Memorial Fund (to be used for Laszlo’s education) in lieu of flowers:
Whitney Kerr Memorial Fund
Bank of the Ozarks

Or PayPal to kirby@rotofugi.com, please note that it is for the Whitney Kerr Memorial Fund.

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 😉
