I’ve been wanting to work with Todd Robertson for awhile now since he sent me pics of a Mecha Eyezon. Todd’s created quite a following in the custom toy world for his mash ups of vinyls , particulary Kaiju, and Mecha parts. These parts can include circuit boards, old vacuum tubes, metal springs and just about any type of mechnical parts… all deftly placed and arranged to work flawlessly with said toy. Its Todd’s sense of design to meld the Mecha parts with the toy that really sets his customs apart from others.
I thought that to give him a bit of a challenge our first collab would be the soon to be released Micro Kaiju Eyezon figure. Micro Eyezon stands a mere 2.5 inches tall and is made up of 2 soft vinyl pieces, with a seam at the waist. Below you can see inprogress pics of how Todd resolved
There’s not much area to work with on such a small figure… but Todd has made good use of his Mecha parts… and the cherry on the top is the added element to the top portion of Micro Eyezon !
Here’s a group shot of the finished pieces. While they look similar, they are actually all different… in that no two have the same array of parts and or paint. Look at the details to the eyes .. each one hand dotted and finished !

Shown here with a rare chase “gold” version 😉
As we usually do here at Max Toy, we have already offered these to Max Toy Club members who have bought nearly all of them. But we do have a few saved for our Friday December 16th, 2011 release .. via the Max Toy web store – http://www.maxtoyco.com/Shop_home.php
I think you’ll agree that Todd has done some incredible work on these tiny guys ! And don’t forget these make excellent Holiday gifts 😉
Todd and I have more coming up soon .. but check out his web site here :
