A last blog for 2007.. boy what a year it has been ! For Max Toy Company it has been an awesome year full of terrific events like Comic Con 2007, Toy Karma show at Rotofugi in Chicago, and the Beyond Ultraman Show in Pasadena at the PMCA museum … just to name a few events.. toy wise we had the releases of Eyezon and Boy Karma , both Max Toy originals, many collaborations with Japanese companies like Dream Rockets, Rumble Monsters, Cronic, Gargamel. For sure we have more in the works for 2008, and January will see a very special collaboration release by me and a very talented guy whose skills are top notch for sure ! plus a lot more to come !
On a more serious note, I am hoping the current tone in the kaiju community will take on a much more positive track .. being a long time collector I have seen this trend before and it is not a healthy one for sure. There’s plenty coming out by lots of companies and they all deserve to be supported, again in a positive light. Besides you wouldn’t want to get a lump of (vinyl) coal for Xams.. right ? (ha-ha)
To end a more uplifting ( well for me ! ) note.. 2007 saw many rare items come into the Ultraman collection 😉 I’m more than happy to curate these items while I can and help preserve them for the future collector .. in fact one of the items will be in need of a museum conservator for help .. as it’s made of very fragile material … I may document this process in future blogs.
Happy Holidays all see you next year !
