Max Toy Updates

Hi Max Toy Fans !
Let’s start with the not great news … obviously everyone is aware of the virus and with much discussion with my family, i have decided to cancel any con attendance for the next few months.. This includes the upcoming Creature Bazaar in Glendale ;-(
Super bummed.
Besides taking care of my 93 year old mother, I am also in the “elderly” group of over 50+ year olds to avoid crowds (I don’t know how I made it to that group ! )
I wish everyone to stay healthy and well out there !
I do have some customs and new releases coming up this month ( info below ) .. so hopefully you guys are able to support me that way.
In fact, for all Artists out there,  I hope you can continue to support them.. in any way you can…
Your Kaiju Pal,
Mark
===========================
Updates:
This weekend, check out Clutter Gallery show, Kaiju Kanibal show, I have two classic TriPus ( which by the way, I’m on the last box of them.. so once they are gone that’s it folks ! ) Contact them for mailing list and buying info.
Tease for a new Ultraman ;-), yes this month ! Club members get first chance at them !
Later this month, have a special Eyezon for Outre Gallery and their Yokai Yokai show.

Japan Wonderfest Feb 2020

WF exclusives 2020

Yo-san will be attending Wonderfest February 2nd, 2020 at the Max Toy table 7-04-09. These Toho exclusives can not be sold outside of this Japan event. No sales to USA or elsewhere. We can not get the license for the USA, so for the time being we can not offer them for sale outside of Japan. Sorry about that ;-( There’s more toys for sale at this event, so follow Yo via Instagram: @quackmaxx

Ultraman & Baltan

After a quick sell out, due to popular demand, we are now taking PRE ORDERS on this officially licensed Tsuburaya Productions Ultraman figure from Max Toy Company ! Please read the description before ordering as this is a Pre Order, so production delays may happen.

117.3 likes ?!?

At least glad to see lots of Tsuburaya stuff made the listing ! As always, thank you, thank you for the continued support of Max Toys and my past exhibit “Kaiju Vs Heroes” at the Japanese American National Museum. I keep thinking I’m going to slow it down, but we’ve already got a lot of new projects for 2020 ( Including one super HUGE one that I can’t wait to reveal ! ) and a long term one that I think people won’t see coming … as with a lot of stuff I’m not putting all my eggs into one basket so no hints just yet 😉

Ultraman Max Toy x Tsuburaya Productions

????

So, after nearly 46 years after first receiving Bullmark Ultraman figures and Kaiju as Christmas gifts from Japan… the circle is almost complete ! It’s not a secret if you follow me on Instagram ( maxtoyco ), but finally we are about to debut the VERY first sofubi Ultraman figure for sale in the USA ! Fully licensed by Tsuburaya Productions Japan ! Now, you might be saying, “Hey, I been buying Bandai Ultraman figures for many years now !” But, technically those were not officially imported for sale in the USA. After a decades long legal battle ( you can google more about that ) Tsuburaya Productions, the only owner of the Ultraman license can now license the character worldwide. AS a life long Ultraman toy collector, we’ve been trying for many years to be able to make a official Ultraman figure for sale outside of Japan.. so this is a huge deal to me… like I said, circle complete !

First USA debut will be at the upcoming Designer Con ( Dcon ) , Max Toy Booth 630 ! First come, first served ! But, we may limit sales to one person. More photos as we get closer to the event !

Hoots the Owl

Now on sale, our newest character, HOOTS the Owl ! Designed by Mark Nagata, sculpted by Makino-san of TTToys. This was formally in our GachaMaxx series, but now being released fully painted ! Available via our web store !

Splotch Peek !

A peek at something painted up for the Unruly / Sideshow Collectibles booth for Dcon. Besides this cool custom, I’ve been cranking away on many other figures for upcoming shows … but some I can not show, just yet ! Will do my best to post them here.. but again Instagram is the best way to see what I’m up to !
