Updates:
Shin Eyezon update. At the iron mold factory hope to hear more news soon ! Header card art by the awesome Sophie Campbell is done too !
Pre Orders: Clear Blue Ultraman is still in pre order status. Hopefully we can get them in April/May time frame. However go this image of the figure from the factory so we are almost done !
Ultra Kaiju Bemstar and Twintails will have a USA release soon so please look out for that. Also just got sample pictures of THREE more Ultraman colorways ! Very cool ones very soon !
Ultraman collector cards ! There’s a Kickstarter for them now ( fully funded) but I was asked to contribute a few original sketched cards for the set. These will be randomly inserted into the packs. Card set is fully licensed by Tsuburaya Productions, too ! Will show them as soon as i do them and they get approved ;-P
And a little sneak peek at a new Ultraman header card I’m working on … you might “see” a glimpse of it during the Super Sofubi Show thingy above ;-P
Still needs final approval tho …!
Special online show “Kaiju Amigos” with good friend Javier Jimenez for May. Details very soon and we hope to offer some Fun stuff plus a special Zoom chat with us 😉
As always, appreciate your continued support and look forward to showing you more new projects very soon !
Your Kaiju Pal,
Mark

Mark Nagata custom Kaiju micro runs

Posting up this Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021, I’ve painted a variety of Max Toy Company original sofubi figures in micro runs ( meaning x10 pieces or less !). Max Toy Club members have been given first access but don’t worry there’s remaining figures to choose from ! All items available will post to our web store: www.maxtoyco.com at a random time. Appreciate the support and good luck !

Here’s a peek at what’s on offer:

Kaiju Axron on Flesh Sofubi

 

 Mecha Nekoron on clear yellow sofubi

 

Kaiju TriPus on clear dark blue sofubi

 

Kaiju Eyezon on white sofubi

 

Kaiju TriPasu on white sofubi ( now sold out !)

Max Toy Updates

Sorry for the lack of updates, we’ve had a series of nice ( and Sold Out ) toy releases from Tsuburaya Productions Ultraman and Go Nagai / Dynamic Pro Mazinger Z figures ! BY the way, ALL Pre Order for the Mazinger Z figure are now shipped. This particular colorway is now sold out. Look for a few more glows and hopefully a Glitter version very soon !

Best to sign up to our mailing list or follow me on Instagram @maxtoyco for daily updates and what not… here’s a update on our new Eyezon project !

Shin Eyezon project is now in the iron mold stage in Tokyo ! Expertly sculpted by Beth Graveshttp://www.bethgraves.net/

 

And based on a design by the awesome Sophie Campbellhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophie_Campbell

Takes about 4-6 weeks in this next stage. Once the molds are done than a test pull will be generated to make sure there’s no issues pulling the soft vinyl. From there we’ll get some paint masks made which will take another few weeks. In the meantime working on the header cards with Sophie and soon we will be ready for the first release !

To give you an idea of this new Eyezons size .. here’s the sculpt with his Brothers ( or is it Sisters ?!?)

Max Toy September Updates

Sorry for the lack of updates but as usual lots of stuff going on 😉 Of course, the best way to see what’s up is to follow our Instagram feed – @maxtoyco

I want to thank everyone for the support… we just sold out of all our Pre Order Tsuburaya Productions figures ! Posted below, Dark Baltan, Dark Ultraman and Green Fireman !

But, on the Dark Ultraman, we got so many people asking us if we’d do another run.. that I’ve put up a Pre Order for a final second run here:

https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Pre-Order-round-2-Ultraman-Dark-version-Tsuburaya-Productions-x-Max-Toy/1822

I will only have it up thru this weekend and than that’s it ! Please read the description about our Pre Orders.

These are now fully sold out !

Below, Only a few pieces left of the following.. “Red Ghost” Gerald Okamura, “Man of Many Weapons” !

And marbled Kaiju Eyezon ! This one turned out very cool ! And because of the process, no two are alike ! Order him here: https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Clear-Red-Ghost-Gerald-Okamura-Man-of-Many-Weapons/1821

Order him here: https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Kaiju-Eyezon-Orange-Yellow-marbled-painted-version/1829

Finally, I was surprised our Dolphin Patrol figure got a lot of attention .. and, to be honest, I should have made more  ;-P Personally, it’s one of my favorite figures we’ve done, but really hasn’t gotten too much love.. maybe it’s the clear vinyl with paint that did it this time ! He’s sold out.. but we’ll do another one soon !

Happy Holidays 2019 !

Happy Holidays from Max Toy Company ! Wishing you good Health and Happiness in 2020 ! We’re entering our 15th year (!) and have a bunch of cool projects to show you guys. As always, we could not keep making toys without your continued support and both Yo-san and I appreciate it !

Friday, I will start taking Pre Orders for a very exciting figure … So check back here, or your email or Instagram @maxtoyco !!

Devera Eyezons

What is this ?!

Here’s a peek at something I’m working on with Joe Somers / Squibbles Ink ! Follow Joe’s Instagram or Max Toy for more info 😉 Should make it’s debut at Dcon in November !

Kaiju Con 2019

Japanese American National Museum

I’m still recovering from Kaiju Con 2019, but in a nutshell it far exceed my expectations ! Plus, the crazy thing is the tickets sold out at the door and they actually had to turn away people wanting to come into the show ! They could see the museum and of course the Kaiju vs Heroes show at least.

I was pulled in many directions, we had a booth, a signing with Gerald Okamura, a Paint Demo and Toy Talk also.

Kaiju Con Crowds
Max Toy table Kaiju Con 2019

While I prefer to stay home and pet the cats … it’s also good to venture out and once I’m out, I do enjoy meeting fans and friends !

Artist Fred Marinello and the Radioactive Giant Bunny !
Love Fred’s work !
Mechavirus in person ! Todd had some drop dead beautiful work !
Awesome Dudes !
Xpanded Universe Mike !
Anatomy Kaiju Eyezon goes home with a Fan !
I didn’t know but the room was full so they stopped letting people into the demo !
I really don’t know what I’m doing 😉 The museum taped the demo and there will be a link to it soon.
Drying brushing Demo !

We also had Martial Arts Legend Gerald Okamura sign his newest figure release for excited fans !

Man of Many Weapons !
😉

And finally, participated in a Rare Toys Round table, hosted by Super Duper Jumbo Machinder collector, Tom Franck, with Justin Ishmael, Quang Le and Mark Nagata ! Video is up on YouTube but I believe the museum will also post it soon ( I’ll post up links when they do) Good times !

Holy Grail Red Bullmark Ultraman

and finally I wish I had more time to talk to the many artists and vendors … but here’s a few …

Happy to add this amazing painting by artist Joel Nakamura to the Ultraman collection !
I didn’t want to pressure Max too much but this was his first time selling customs he painted at a con !

Well, I’m sure I’m missing something but was a awesome convention and people kept asking if there will be another next year … all I can say is I hope so and I’m sure the museum will make a decision about it soon 😉

Keep checking their web site: http://www.janm.org/

And Kaiju vs Heroes, after 10 months, ends July 7th, 2019 ! Last chance to see my exhibit : http://www.janm.org/exhibits/kaiju-vs-heroes/
