Kaiju Paint Party 2, will be held at the Design Festa Gallery (east) Harajuku, Tokyo, August 17-18th, 2019. The first day, for a small fee, you can paint a Max Toy blank, using a provided airbrush and paints. Plus watch famous Japanese Toy Makers paint in person ! Day 2, is an all out sales event with exclusives and customs for sale ! Here’s the Japanese flyer for the event :
And, here’s some of the customs I’m bring along to sell … !
I’ll be attending both days in person so see you soon in Tokyo !
Sofubi-man custom online only custom show will go live via the Max Toy web store on July 31, 2019 ! Stay tuned for peeks at amazing custom work by participating artist and also follow my Instagram ( @maxtoyco ) for pics too as we get closer to the event !
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 !
We also had Martial Arts Legend Gerald Okamura sign his newest figure release for excited fans !
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 !
and finally I wish I had more time to talk to the many artists and vendors … but here’s a few …
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 😉

There’s more but I don’t have the energy to post more ;-P See you there and any stuff that doesn’t sell I’ll post up next week 😉
These stunning FrankenMerrick soft vinyl figures are made by Miscreation Toys / Jeremi Rimel. The details are super impressive and to be honest the challenge for me was to paint them to show off these details but not lose the anatomy or over all look of the figure ( if that makes sense). I had great fun with each and as you see, there are now 3 different versions in our web store ! First up, is FrankenMerrick in his Black and White movie appearance ( as imagined !)
The second one, is FrankenMerrick in a more colorful mood …
and a full body view
Finally, Metallic version !
