Hard to believe it’s been 10 years since founding Max Toy Company ! I thought I would share some behind the scene pics from the early days. We start with my original character, Captain Maxx. Named after my son Max … whom the company is named for as well πŸ˜‰ While we’ve gone on to make Captain Maxx in other sizes and in Japan, this first China made version remains my favorite.

Fun Fact: I use “Max” so much (company name, Characters etc) that people think my name is Max ! I’d say about a third of the emails are addressed to MaxΒ  πŸ˜‰

Before launching the character I posted up a secret web site, which gave the back ground details on where Captain Maxx came from: www.captainmaxx.com

By the way, it’s a fictitious story but fans still think there was a vintage TV series in JapanΒ  ;-P

Here’s the sketch I did that the factory used to base the sculpt below on. My influences for the figure included Ultraman, Spectreman, Mirrorman and Marvel comics 60s Captain Marvel .. all mashed up !

Final figure, bagged.

And of course Captain Maxx needed his own theme song ! Hope you enjoyed this look back .. I’ll post up more throughout the year.
