Inspired by ancient Japanese Yokai legends, this unique edition features a special header card with a “ultra powered up” illustration ! A one of a kind, painted figure made of soft vinyl !

Custom Changeling Leaf

Tomorrow, Friday, March 29th, 2019 I’ve had the honor of painting a small limited run of these beautiful Amy Sol x Munkyking “Leaf Changeling” soft vinyl figures.

Each is hand airbrushed by Mark Nagata and numbered and signed on the bottom. You can only get it from Munkyking via this link: https://munkyking.com/collections/store/products/changeling-leaf-mark-nagata-custom

Unlike the usual monster figures I do, the challenge for me was to hopefully bring a my metallic colors to this figure, without over doing it. I think I accomplished this while still letting the elegance of Amy’s design show through.

Asian America Podcast

A few months back had the privilege of sitting down at my exhibit, “Kaiju vs Heroes” at the Japanese American National Museum and talk to Ken Fong of Asian America podcast.

Here’s the link to the podcast: http://asianamericapodcast.com/?podcasts=mark-nagata

If you’re not familiar with who I am or what I’ve done to this point, the podcast does a good job at covering those aspects of my life ;-P

Many thanks to Ken and his podcast. Be sure to check out the other episodes they have as well.

Kaiju vs Heroes Exhibit News

Awesome announcement !

My exhibit, “Kaiju vs Heroes”, has been extended thru July 7th, 2019 at the Japanese American National Museum !!!

From the museums Press release: Kaiju vs Heroes: Mark Nagata’s Journey through the World of Japanese Toys, which features hundreds of contemporary and vintage Japanese vinyl toys, has been extended on view at the Japanese American National Museum through July 7, 2019. The exhibition is included in regular admission to the museum. In conjunction with the exhibition’s extension, the museum will host a day-long separately ticketed Kaiju-Con on June 15, 2019.

Super honored by the awesome reception this exhibit has received from both Kaiju fans and non Kaiju fans ! More importantly, the exhibit has allowed me the chance to reflect upon my Japanese American heritage and connect with many diverse people who were not aware of the internment of Japanese Americans during World War 2. I’m grateful that by extending the exhibit thru July 7th, 2019, many more will not only see a super fun exhibit but also learn more about the internment and it’s affects on Japanese Americans. And, yes, there will be a Kaiju Con … check out their link for more info !!
