Tickets for this upcoming Zoom event will go up for sale soon via www.maxtoyco.com ! A ticket will allow you to participate in our chat with Javier, first access to exclusives and customs we are working on, too !

Also, sold out of this giant sized Kaiju Eyezon the other day ! At 18 inches in height, these take me extra time to prep and paint ;-P Thus the edition was only x3 pieces ! Sculpted and produced by Joe Somers/ Squibbles Ink and EW Factory.

Below, now sold out, my custom Klav9 Tank Club, tank for Clutter Gallery show. Some really awesome customs of this cool sofubi tank still available here: https://shop.cluttermagazine.com/gallery/1387

 

And our new upcoming Max Toy header, approved by Tsuburaya Productions, for our Ultra series of sofubi figures. Art by Mark Nagata 😉 Can you guess on what we are working on ?!!

and the art by itself  …

Working on much more, but too tired to post it all here  ;-P Stay tuned !

Ultra Kaiju Bemstar and Twintails will have a USA release soon so please look out for that. Also just got sample pictures of THREE more Ultraman colorways ! Very cool ones very soon !
Ultraman collector cards ! There’s a Kickstarter for them now ( fully funded) but I was asked to contribute a few original sketched cards for the set. These will be randomly inserted into the packs. Card set is fully licensed by Tsuburaya Productions, too ! Will show them as soon as i do them and they get approved ;-P
And a little sneak peek at a new Ultraman header card I’m working on … you might “see” a glimpse of it during the Super Sofubi Show thingy above ;-P
Still needs final approval tho …!
Special online show “Kaiju Amigos” with good friend Javier Jimenez for May. Details very soon and we hope to offer some Fun stuff plus a special Zoom chat with us 😉
As always, appreciate your continued support and look forward to showing you more new projects very soon !
Your Kaiju Pal,
Mark

Max Toy Updates

Sorry guys for the lack of updates here, but for the latest news follow my Instagram: maxtoyco or subscribe to our mailing list on our web page. Lots of drops have already happened and most have fully sold out ( see below) We will have one more drop next week ( I think ) for the year so look out for that.

Pre Orders – All Dark Ultraman orders have shipped ! Thank you for waiting, as it took a bit longer with shipping to get them (roughly 2.5 months).

Also, if you Pre Ordered a Mazinger Z ( normal and wings versions) we got only half of them in stock and those have now shipped out. Obviously if you have not received it, you will be in the next wave ( expected in late Dec/ early Jan. But, I will email you with a offer so please wait for that email.

    Santacluth by MadMonk1869 (now sold out)

 

Edition of x2 mini Kaiju Eyezon for this weekends Clutter Holiday show. Contact them for more info !

 

Now sold out, Mazinger Z Max Toy editions from Holy Mountain Toys.

Awesome pictures they took !!

 

New Eyezon project with Artist Sophie Campbell and Sculptor Beth Graves ! Apologies to Beth, this is a super duper rough to her sculpt, but don’t worry it’s looking Fantastic and I will post more in progress pics very soon !

 

Looking forward, for January 1st, 2021, we have a major drop coming !!! You have been warned  😉

I want to take a moment to say “Thank You” so much for the wonderful support of Max Toys (here and in Japan) for this year ! It’s not been the best of years on many levels, but as we close out, I think a glimmer of hope on the horizon for better days ahead.

As a small business, I appreciate your support, and even if just a kind word. I encourage you to support your favorite independent artists if you can as I know many are struggling during this pandemic.

Happy Holidays !

 

Your Kaiju Pal,

Mark

Dcon Online 2020 via PopShopLive Code: MAXTOY

Hi All ! Sorry for the lack of updates but lots going on. First if you Pre Ordered second round of Evil Black Ultraman they are still in production, but thank you for waiting should be soon. First wave of Mazingers are on the way so if you pre ordered, I will fill the orders in the order of first order, well, first !

Ok so this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Designer Con will be held online ! Go to their web page, as you need to buy a ticket to join in via PopShopLive app. Once you have your ticket, my store code is : MAXTOY

While it’s for iPhone or iPad, i believe you can still access via a computer and their web site.

Below are a few of the exclusives we have for the event. Again, you have to get your ticket to access this con. If stuff is left over, I will post them early next week to our web store. To be quite honest, I’m not sure how this will go, cause basically I have to sit there in front of the ipad and “sell” the stuff and you know, be engaging ;-P I’ll give it a go, but this is kinda not for people who don’t really like “people” ( haha ) Anyways, I’m willing to give it a go !

Plus not shown, more stuff and customs !

Max Toy September Updates

Sorry for the lack of updates but as usual lots of stuff going on 😉 Of course, the best way to see what’s up is to follow our Instagram feed – @maxtoyco

I want to thank everyone for the support… we just sold out of all our Pre Order Tsuburaya Productions figures ! Posted below, Dark Baltan, Dark Ultraman and Green Fireman !

But, on the Dark Ultraman, we got so many people asking us if we’d do another run.. that I’ve put up a Pre Order for a final second run here:

https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Pre-Order-round-2-Ultraman-Dark-version-Tsuburaya-Productions-x-Max-Toy/1822

I will only have it up thru this weekend and than that’s it ! Please read the description about our Pre Orders.

These are now fully sold out !

Below, Only a few pieces left of the following.. “Red Ghost” Gerald Okamura, “Man of Many Weapons” !

And marbled Kaiju Eyezon ! This one turned out very cool ! And because of the process, no two are alike ! Order him here: https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Clear-Red-Ghost-Gerald-Okamura-Man-of-Many-Weapons/1821

Order him here: https://www.maxtoyco.com/Store/Kaiju-Eyezon-Orange-Yellow-marbled-painted-version/1829

Finally, I was surprised our Dolphin Patrol figure got a lot of attention .. and, to be honest, I should have made more  ;-P Personally, it’s one of my favorite figures we’ve done, but really hasn’t gotten too much love.. maybe it’s the clear vinyl with paint that did it this time ! He’s sold out.. but we’ll do another one soon !

Updates:
I’ve decided to cancel ALL my in person shows for 2020. While Dcon may still be going forward, to be honest, and with available news on Coivd, I don’t see how I can even attend ANY indoor events without risk. I do have a pre existing condition plus would not want to pass it along to my mother or family. Of course, I wait for Dcon to make their final decisions.
=================================
My exhibit Kaiju vs Heroes is now closed after a 10 month run at JANM. Limited supplies on items from the show.

New Pre Orders and Shipping Updates

Hi All ! I hope you are doing well and staying safe ! I wanted to update you on Max Toy Pre Orders and Shipping Updates.

Shipping: For those who may not know, because of the worldwide virus, ALL shipping via EMS ( which we use for International shipping and for getting our stock from Tokyo) has been severely delayed  ;-( Stuff will ship but see the delays below.

Here’s the Japan postal web site: https://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/information/2020/0401_02_en.html

Pre Orders: Currently the Glow In Dark Ultraman figures are just about done at the factory in Tokyo. They should ship out this month. BUT, as stated above, they may take 3-4 weeks to get to the USA  ;-( I’m so sorry about that.. but it’s out of our control.

Hopefully this will get better soon.. but as you know with fewer planes flying out these delays may be here for awhile.

I will be taking Pre Orders for these figures teased below later this week via our web store:

Check back here or via our Instagram : @maxtoyco

Also look for a micro run Kaiju Eyezon, painted by Michael Devera … images posted soon !

Thank you again for the support and I hope things improve for the whole world soon… but to be honest I think we all will have to make adjustments going forward. As my 94 year old mother told me ( over the phone ) , that’s life and you just have to go with it (!) She should know having experienced many things in her life, including being in an internment camp during World War 2, and having breast cancer twice ! So, be positive and we will get through this !
