Thanks to our lucky 3 readers who responded to the blog below and won a free Max Toy Co. tee ! The image above is part of the packaging for the soon to be released Alien Xam , figure from Max Toy Co. Background- Alien Xam is Captain Maxx’s evil nemisis, and will stop at nothing to rid the Earth of it’s protector. Alien Xam can take several forms… he can de-evolve into thousands of smaller less powerful forms ( the Alien Xam finger puppet is an example ), or turn invisible.
This new figure will stand 11 inches tall and feature opening “claws” ! I’ll post pics of the prototype soon.
So where am I going with all this ? To be honest I have no master plan..this Capt. Maxx stuff is all my personal projects ( with input from Max ! ), I do them more for “fun” than for profit.. I’ll keep doing them as long as I can afford them 😉 In an interesting twist I actually sell a good quantity to Japan. I really didn’t factor sales to Japan into my biz plan..plus I figured they’d think this stuff was a weak attempt at the whole Kaiju thing ( well some may think that still ! ) I take much glee in that 50 years from now someone in Japan will find a Capt Maxx .. and wonder what series he came from ( the joke will be on him, for sure ! ) Anyways, working on more drawings for future figures in this series, plus a new licensed figure that I think will make folks excited and bring a smile to their faces (!)… what could that be ??? I’m not saying…just yet !
back to packing and drawing….
