Max Toy Updates

Hi Max Toy Fans !
Let’s start with the not great news … obviously everyone is aware of the virus and with much discussion with my family, i have decided to cancel any con attendance for the next few months.. This includes the upcoming Creature Bazaar in Glendale ;-(
Super bummed.
Besides taking care of my 93 year old mother, I am also in the “elderly” group of over 50+ year olds to avoid crowds (I don’t know how I made it to that group ! )
I wish everyone to stay healthy and well out there !
I do have some customs and new releases coming up this month ( info below ) .. so hopefully you guys are able to support me that way.
In fact, for all Artists out there,  I hope you can continue to support them.. in any way you can…
Your Kaiju Pal,
Mark
===========================
Updates:
This weekend, check out Clutter Gallery show, Kaiju Kanibal show, I have two classic TriPus ( which by the way, I’m on the last box of them.. so once they are gone that’s it folks ! ) Contact them for mailing list and buying info.

Kaiju vs Heroes exhibit

Kaiju Vs Heroes, my exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles California closes July 7th, 2019. See over 300+ Kaiju toys from the Mark Nagata collection, take a VR tour of Nagata’s studio, play the Eyezon video game and see the short movie about Mark Nagata’s art and toys, “In the Clutches of Kaiju “ !

In addition, at the museum learn more about the internment of Japanese Americans during WW2 and the modern day repercussions.

Also, the past Kaiju Con featured a number of events that were videoed and have been posted up:

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.

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 😉
