Max Toy Updates !

Sorry for the lack of updates .. but have been totally swamped (!) Anyways, here’s a few events etc  😉

Opening this Saturday March 3rd, 2018 , The Painter’s Show , curated by @Phuntsy, held at Lulubell store/gallery. More info via Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/LulubellToys/posts/10155051810232352

Here’s my one and only piece for the show, Kaiju EyePus ! Yes, I mashed up two of my creations and created this 😉 Contact the gallery for purchasing info.

and I’m on VERO app, now ;-P Its very unstable at the moment …and so far, hard for me to post, but no ads and I guess folks hate Instagram now .. anyways, I’ll post in both places, plus Facebook and Twitter .. we’ll see how long a 53 year old can keep up  😉

and finally a peek at some Sillymanders I’m painting for the upcoming STS Shanghai Toy Show. I’m sharing a booth with artist Jay222 … should be an adventure  😉

Well decide to dump all the images here  😉 Max Toy Dcon stuffs, see us at Table TE17 !!!

 
Max Toys at Dcon 2017
Hi Max Toy Fans !
Phew … ! I painted a mix of micro runs of our most popular figures, a few factory paints and of course one of a kind painted figures for Dcon.
I’m packed and ready to drive down to Dcon ! Excited to be setting up there at Table TE17 😉 Come say Hello to Max and Myself !
As many of you may know, I have not set up at the USA show in over 9 years !
Anyways, I’m bring all the above plus a ton of smaller one offs and some Max Toy stock. A good time to see the stuff up close and of course buy ;-P
Also have stuff from Jay222, Javier Jimenez and Doug Hardy. Doug will also be the booth both days, and selling his brand new resin, Witch Cat Lulu ! Very cute hand cast and painted figure so check her out !
By the way, everything is first come, first served .. but on the Tiger Boss / Office cats it’s one of each type per person, per order.
I will have a test shot of our newest figure, Sofubi-man on display as well !! My tribute to the men & women who cast these figures in Japan. This figure will release very soon, so stay tuned for more details.
Also, excited to be finally revealing publicly at Dcon, my Japanese toy collection / art show at the Japanese American National Museum in Sept 2018 !!
Titled; Kaiju vs Heroes – Mark Nagata’s Journey through the World of Japanese Toys
I’ve worked on this for over 2 years now and we are coming down to the final months before the opening. Much more info as we get closer and some cool stuff planned so stay tuned !
Thanks so much for the support !
Your Kaiju Pal,
Mark

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 !

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

Thanks again for your continued support !!!

Your Kaiju Pal,

Mark
