    I'll wildly guess Daiei/Gamera stuff or a Mecha Godzilla, given their recent (tremendous) metallic-looking runs.

    I was getting at this earlier! Production quality on their licensed guys is crazy, crazy good. Maybe this has been the case for everything, and I've just been missing out not collecting Maxtoy originals :lol:

    Yeah, I do agree! I've been paying attention (albeit, with tunnel vision for a couple of characters) for a little bit, and I would say the variety/experimenting has gone up dramatically over the past half year. Super high quality, too.

    Hey there! I figured I'd let people on here know about the upcoming Max Toy Company 15 year anniversary celebration that's coming up. Mark is selling "tickets" to the virtual zoom event with all of the artists involved for the Max Toy 15th Anniversary Celebration.
    If you want to show support, the ticket purchase includes a "ticket" signed and numbered, Max Toy Anniversary stickers, a lenticular photo and the zoom link will be emailed. The ticket also allows early access for all the customs that are made for the show.

    I figured I'd share this info if anyone wants to show their support to Mark (a super sweet guy!), his company, and would like early access to the customs for the show.

    So I'm guessing this is the recent Mazinger Z reveal?

    My thoughts: I feel like everyone is doing a Mazinger figure these days, and do we really need more? That said, I like PPP's execution on these two, which remind me of his old Cosmicat Robos. They are surprisingly small at only 6.5 inches tall, which seems to put them around the height of fight figures. I think the sculpt will look pretty clean and compact at that size.

    Assumed the same, yep. At the initial announcement I was a little disappointed; you're right that we're seeing a glut of Mazinger and Mazinger-inspired toys. I originally I thought this would be huge and expensive, which would put it outside my sights as a casual fan at best. When I found out it was compact, priced well and with a removable Jet Scrander (which I think might be a first, at least for modern sofubi), I got on board.

    I was similarly sort of on the fence about this but the fact that it's relatively small tipped me over into the "buy" column. (I've been headed away from the bigger toys for a bit now.) Not sure if I'll get any more, depends on the vinyl/paint combos, but glad I pulled the trigger on the OG Mazinger version.
