Max Toy Updates SDCC 2017

This week is SDCC Comic Con and once again I’m honored to have a few customs with some of the nicest people in the toy/art scene.
First up ( above)  i have a nice selection of figures via the Squibbles Ink / Rotofugi booth 5248 !

I’m among a select group to customized artist Martin Hsu’s Kindred figures. The resin

figure is produced by @powercore.io . Stop by Martin’s booth number 4530 he’s got lots of great art and prints !

Finally, have one more figure available at the Xenoplasm 2 show in Australia. Follow this link for purchasing info. https://www.outregallery.com/collections/xenoplasm-2/products/mecha-dino-saikobi  It’s painted over a glow in dark vinyl base !
Coming up, Pre Orders for the first factory painted CrusherG figure as well … I’ll post up a link in the web store next week 😉 This picture is the factory test paint, but looks most awesome to me  !
Busy prepping for STGCC in September.. but can not show anything as of yet  ;-P Stay tuned for numerous announcements as we get closer ..
Thanks for looking and your continued support of Max Toys !

Gold TriPus & Stranger Factory Gallery show

Today we are taking PRE ORDERS, on our latest Kaiju TriPus in a hand dry brushed GOLD paint edition ! Hand painted by Mark Nagata over a black sofubi vinyl.

Basically the blanks are in stock, I’ll just need a few days to paint each of them. So you won’t have to wait too long ;-P
Opening next week June 2nd, 2017, at Stranger Factory, I have these three cool customs ( Galaxy TriPus, Dino SaiKobi, Metallic TriPus )  in the “Toymakers of Planet Earth” group show !
Please contact the gallery for more info on how to purchase them:  http://www.strangerfactory.com/ 
Plus check out the other talented artists in the show !
And, we will be offering the newest sofubi figures, Mecha Ape, Crusher G and Galaxy Patrol very soon. Max Club members will get first shot at them, but I think there should be enough to post to the web store… I hope !

Updates: Ok first off if you Pre Ordered the King Negora ( red glitter) I am told that they should be finally painted and done next week .. I’m not holding my breath, but i know they were busy with Design Festa, so hopefully they can finally finish this order. I’m really sorry this took over 4 months ;-( I will add an extra something to each of your orders as a Thank You for waiting. Also, to clear up any confusion, we use several factories to cast and paint our toys. This particular factory is one of the busiest in the sofubi game, so just my bad luck that the project got so delayed.
Starting to prep for SDCC ( Rotofugi will be hosting my customs ), and gearing up for a special show just after summer ( I’ve mentioned it but wasn’t official so guess I shouldn’t have mentioned it !), but will announce it real soon, plus Dcon ( Nov), still working on a fantastic thing for Summer 2018 ( been working on this for 2 years now !), more new toys in the works ( Like Sofubi man !) and some exciting stuff for Japan ( and the USA ) 😉

Thanks again for your continued support !!!

Your Kaiju Pal,

Mark

Hawaiian Drazoran Seth & Laura Longmire

hawaiian_draz

Hawaiian Kaiju Drazoran custom by Seth and Laura Longmire ! Where to start ?!! These guys are simply amazing !!! First, a super colorful Hawaiian colored figured expertly painted by Seth. That alone is worth the price, but there’s much more. Seth’s mom, Laura, has hand crafted Hawaii shirts for each figure ! The details are all there from the pockets to the buttons, yes they button ! There’s more ! … Seth handcrafted and cast coconut drinks for each to hold ! Laura added custom made sandals and shell necklaces ! No two are the same by the way .. there are x5 figures in the “set” each is hand numbered and signed .. but really each is unique and no two are the same ! We only have two left … from the series. Simply stunning and a perfect addition to your Kaiju collection !I’ve seen a ton of custom Max toy figures and these rank up in my top 5 all time best 😉
