Hi All ! Sorry for the lack of updates but lots going on. First if you Pre Ordered second round of Evil Black Ultraman they are still in production, but thank you for waiting should be soon. First wave of Mazingers are on the way so if you pre ordered, I will fill the orders in the order of first order, well, first !
Ok so this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Designer Con will be held online ! Go to their web page, as you need to buy a ticket to join in via PopShopLive app. Once you have your ticket, my store code is : MAXTOY
While it’s for iPhone or iPad, i believe you can still access via a computer and their web site.
Below are a few of the exclusives we have for the event. Again, you have to get your ticket to access this con. If stuff is left over, I will post them early next week to our web store. To be quite honest, I’m not sure how this will go, cause basically I have to sit there in front of the ipad and “sell” the stuff and you know, be engaging ;-P I’ll give it a go, but this is kinda not for people who don’t really like “people” ( haha ) Anyways, I’m willing to give it a go !
Plus not shown, more stuff and customs !
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:
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 !
Now taking Pre Orders for new colorway of Alien Baltan ! Details and ordering via this link in our web store:
FYI – I’m getting close to closing the Pre Order limit so don’t delay in ordering. We will not be making this version again.
Of course, this is officially licensed from Tsuburaya Productions !
And, we will be reordering Silver paint Ultraman plus a new colorway soon !!!
Also, by the end of this month or early July we should have our newest Ultra Kaiju for the USA. Here’s a peek at what’s coming very soon ! New colorways of Zazan, Garamon and Gomera !

In no particular order … more Press for “Kaiju vs Heroes” show at the Japanese American National Museum
Actual printed stuff 😉
Below, my recent October visit to the show, recorded a pod cast interview with Ken Fong and his podcast Asian America : http://asianamericapodcast.com/
My segment is not up yet but I’ll post a link here once it is !
Also, had some really nice fan interactions with many people at the show. I’m touched that people are really taking to the toys and the wonderful displays the museum came up with. But most of all that many are connecting to my story and of being Asian American.
Plus continued painting the massive Neo Eyezon … I think if I finish before the show is over, we will give it away .. but working on the details !
Here’s a special, hand painted with acrylics Real Type Sofubi-man by Mark Nagata. This one has sold and was sent to OneUp in Tokyo for their anniversary show.

And, I will be back at the Kaiju vs Heroes exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum on Saturday, October 20th, 2018 !
