Max Toy Updates SDCC 2017

This week is SDCC Comic Con and once again I’m honored to have a few customs with some of the nicest people in the toy/art scene.
First up ( above)  i have a nice selection of figures via the Squibbles Ink / Rotofugi booth 5248 !

I’m among a select group to customized artist Martin Hsu’s Kindred figures. The resin

figure is produced by @powercore.io . Stop by Martin’s booth number 4530 he’s got lots of great art and prints !

Finally, have one more figure available at the Xenoplasm 2 show in Australia. Follow this link for purchasing info. https://www.outregallery.com/collections/xenoplasm-2/products/mecha-dino-saikobi  It’s painted over a glow in dark vinyl base !
Coming up, Pre Orders for the first factory painted CrusherG figure as well … I’ll post up a link in the web store next week 😉 This picture is the factory test paint, but looks most awesome to me  !
Busy prepping for STGCC in September.. but can not show anything as of yet  ;-P Stay tuned for numerous announcements as we get closer ..
Thanks for looking and your continued support of Max Toys !

Pre Order King Negora & Updates

Finally, the Pre Order King Negoras are done and about to be shipped to me here in the USA  😉 These took a very long time, but they did get done ! If you Pre Ordered, we will be shipping them ASAP, along with a bonus item for the long wait. If there are any left over I will post them to the web store soon.

Here are a couple of customs, that have sold …

 

Due to the high demand for these types of customs, I’ve been randomly popping them in the web store ;-P I’m a kinda slow painter, so it takes a few days to complete each one .. plus a few will be headed to various upcoming shows like Xenoplasm 2 in Australia and SDCC via Rotofugi booth. I’ll post those images soon …but, thank you for the continued support !

SDCC 2016 customs

SDCC2016_roto

Many thanks to Joe, Kirby and the Rotofugi crew, once again I will have some customs for sale at their booth – #5248 ! There’s only one of each (these are one of a kind !) and prices are as follows:

Clear Eyezon (with guts) will be available for $435, while the newer style custom Kaiju Eyezon will be $350. A glow in the dark Saikobi is $375, and finally, a mini Kaiju Tripus will be available for $135. All prices are sales tax included.

Let me say, that Joe, Kirby & Whitney are hands down my favorite store/gallery but more importantly, just really good people. If only other “toy” folks and artists I deal with were like this, well, the toy world would be perfect 😉 Please take the time to stop by their booth and buy something (doesn’t have to be my customs) to show your support.

While I won’t be at this years SDCC, we’re working on something for later this year  😉

SDCC 2015

So this was the year I wasn’t going to SDCC aka Comic Con … the Max Boy really wanted to go so who am I to stand in the way of the next generation of collectors ? Not having luck in the ticket pool, toy friends got us in ! It was as usual an onslaught of everything ! I’ve been going since the late 80s, so I’ve seen the convention transform into what it is today. In my opinion, not really my cup of tea, I miss the old school dealers and actual comic sellers, but time marches on.

Once again the fine folks at Squibbles Ink / Rotofugi hosted several of my customs (which sold out). Do yourself a favor and check out Rotofugi store online: http://www.rotofugi.com/home

 

 

Card2015

Personally I don’t really find much at these conventions anymore … I take that back, I find LOTS of things I’d want … like a $70,000 Jack Kirby piece of art (!) Ha ! … not in this lifetime ;-P

Max and I do take our annual YuGiOh card picture, which is free … and honestly the best thing i could get from the convention 🙂

HsuBooth72

So the first Galaxy Pup I did, was stolen, so i quickly painted up another and brought it down for artist Martin Hsu’s booth … luckily it sold within minutes 😉

Also a big Thank You to Mike Minjares for all his help and our annual lunch with Honda and Andrew.

So basically I told Max I’d buy him whatever he wanted, but I’m not going to wait in any lines or go to one place to get a coupon, only to return to another place to MAYBE get a toy. He agreed nothing is worth that much trouble… plus he noted everything ends up on Ebay .. haha … I’m glad he’s not buying into the hype.

Max found plenty to buy regardless, so we didn’t return empty handed for sure. At the end of the day, I turned to him and asked if he’d like to come back next year … there was a slight pause … and he faintly said .. yes ! I guess i don’t have a choice … 2016 .. ugh !

Custom Kaiju by Mark Nagata

GalaxyGroup72

Just posted up in the Max Toy web store, a couple of custom painted figures by Mark Nagata ! Using his Galaxy style applied to a Kaiju Negora and Alien Xam ( thats Max spelled backwards ! ). Both feature stars, galaxies and more spacey details …plus glitter coatings ! Both are one of a kind figures 😉 Using Monster Kolor paints, there is a depth of color that pictures can not replicate .. you will be amazed in person 😉

Coming up, Comic Con custom pictures will post soon and will be available via Squibbles Ink / Rotofugi booth #5248 and a Space Dragon Dog for artist Martin Hsu booth #4530.
