Max Toy Co at Toygraph Alien Argus Show!   Leave a comment

Ceekoar Argus is available at the TAG Shop now, along with some other fierce custom Arguses (Argusi?)

UPDATE: Looks like my Argus has sold!  Thanks for all your continued support.

TAG posted this preview of the Alien Argus show postcard on their Twitter!  I am sooo excited to see this show open, and wish I could be there myself.  See if you can spot my figure on the card (twice!).

Update: Remember the show opens tomorrow night!

Max Toy Co Mini Drazoran- UPDATED   1 comment

 

I have been having a blast getting to know the Monster Kolor paint system since this summer, experimenting with all sorts of crazy finishes and pearl effects, but I have been itching to get back to matte finishes and more ‘model’ sprays.  I went for a vintage feel on this guy with flat colors and silver, but couldn’t help but use a metallic color on the spines.  With a matte finish, the pearls give off this neat iridescence that I was really happy with on the Argus, without being overwhelming.

NOW with better photos.

Max Toy Co Pocket Captain Maxx   Leave a comment

The Max Toy pocket figures were sculpted by Gargamel way back when and predate the minis by a few years.  There’s a Maxx and a Xam released in clear red vinyl as either keychains or necklace charms, and the sculpts are alright, but really blown away by the new mini line.  I decided to paint up my pockets and use them as zipper-charms on my backpack!

Max Toy Minis Custom Set   2 comments

 

With the completion of the Eyezon, I have assembled a full set (plus a duplicate) of Monster Kolor painted Max Toy minis.  The Eyezon, metallic Xam, Tripus, Drazoran, and Eyezon are by me, the pink Xam is by Nagata, and the Maxx is by DP.  Now I need to get one of every sculpt hand-painted by a different artist ;)  I have a flat-color Drazoran painted by Gatchabert, so that’s three sculpts down…

Max Toy Co Hawaii Mini Eyezon   1 comment

I tried to really push my colors and sprays with this little guy. A trick that I’ve learned I can use is to bring up my highlights in white and then use a light squirt of clear colors to restore any fading. I used that on the body to re-saturate some of the colors that I thought were looking a little too light.
