Mark Nagata / Max Toy x Marusan TV

Had the pleasure and honor to be interviewed by Marusan President Eiji Kaminaga for his Marusan TV channel while in Tokyo a few days ago. Actually it feels like a week ago with my jet lag ;-P

It’s alway cool ( to me ) to hear history about the vintage Japanese toys I collect. Once the cameras stopped I kept asking more questions too !

Kaminaga-san was kind enough to give me a copy of his book about the history of Marusan toys. It’s all in Japanese, which I can not read ;-( I told him to do a version in English, haha … but he said it might be possible in the future.

To be honest, this mug, is like the best thing I got on this trip (!) It’s like being on the Kaiju Tonight Show !!

During this interview, I revealed something I’ve worked on for about two years now .. what is it ? You have to watch to find out !

I’ll send out an email about those events next week ๐Ÿ˜‰ Picture below is of the Glow Ettin I did .. I use thin paints to let the glow show thru, but as you see it still looks good in the daylight ( I think ) haha …!

Thanks again for the support everyone as we head into our lucky 13th year !!!

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 )ย  in the “Toymakers of Planet Earth” group show !
Please contact the gallery for more info on how to purchase them:ย  http://www.strangerfactory.com/ย 
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 ) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks again for your continued support !!!

Your Kaiju Pal,

Mark

Max Toy Updates

A bunch of updates … so here we go !

Tomorrow, Friday, May 12, 2017ย  at a random time I will be posting up x4, one of a kind @planetxasia Mecha Goliathon ! I’ll only tease the figures below… but i spent awhile on each one and think they represent some of my best work to date. The figure, itself, is a joy to work with and you should see what other Kaiju they are coming out with. In any case, check the Max Toy web store and good luck !

New TriPus colorway almost done .. this one on Clear sofubi ! I’ll post them up for sale very soon … well, as soon as they ship from Tokyo ;-P

Our newest Kaiju, “Crusher G”, test shot is shown above .. makes his debut at Design Festa Tokyo this month and not to worry we will be offering these in the USA soon ! This figure ( half Gorilla, half robot) goes along nicely with our Mecha Dino SaiKobi ! Sculpt by Pico Pico , of course !

We’ve also gone back to the vaults and made new molds for TriPasu ! First release is very soon, so keep watch !

Here’s one of two MadBalls I painted for the upcoming MyPlasticHeart / Jim Groman show. Full details via the store site: https://www.myplasticheart.com/

Some fantastic work being posted so check out the show soon !
