Max Toy Company

Ask anyone who knows Mark to describe him and the two things that will come up are toys and art. After attending the Academy of Art College in San Francisco during the late 80's and picking up a New York artist's rep, Mark embarked on a 10-year plus journey as a freelance commercial illustrator. The highlight of this
time included over 40 cover paintings for RL Stine's Goosebumps series, Give Yourself Goosebumps."I'd been
collecting Japanese toys all along, especially Ultraman toys, and suddenly realized it would be cool to create a magazine about Japanese toys. This magazine was called Super7. In 2004, Mark created his own toy company called Max Toy Company, named after his son Max. With a nod to the Golden Age of Japanese toys, Max Toy Co. continues the tradition of offering classic Japanese character toys as well as original creations. Mark has created and curated the Toy Karma art toy show, Kaiju Comrades art toy show in Tokyo, Japan and was one of seven California artists in the ground breaking “Beyond Ultraman” Museum show and book. Both toys and artwork appear in the Killer Kaiju book from Collins Designs, Full Vinyl book, Dot Dot Dash book, Hi Fructose Magazine, and the Eiji Tsuburaya biography book from Chronicle books. "Max Toy Co. will allow me to produce original artwork, sculpt new toys, and work directly with a lot of my talented artist friends." Nagata says. Max Toy Co is a synthesis of toys and art ... both life long passions.

COLLECTIONDX ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF THE NOR’EASTER VEGETIUS KAIJU VINYL TOY

DRACUT, MASSACHUSETTS, November 5, 2008 — Following the sold-out "Gore Version Sky Deviler" CollectionDX is proud to announce our latest exclusive toy - the Nor'easter ver. Vegetius!

Vegetius stands 12 inches tall and is made out of translucent blue glitter soft vinyl. Made in Japan by the master craftsmen at Marmit, Vegetius has 5 points of articulation and is limited to 50 pieces.

Vegetius is one of the many giant monsters that take part in the Boston-based Kaiju Big Battel, a series of live action-monster wrestling events. He is the most beast-like creature of the Battel and no man or monster can control him around food.

This color scheme is meant to evoke the harsh, cold winter of the New England region, home to both CollectionDX and Kaiju Big Battel. The blue vinyl is translucent with metallic flakes; a color mixed exclusively for CollectionDX. This color has never been done by Marmit before.

Nor'easter ver. Vegetius is available NOW in the CollectionDX shop for $65

The figure comes bagged with a header card featuring art by CollectionDX’s own JoshB.
