SDCC 2007: Max Toy Co (Booth #4837)
Max Toy Company was one of the first places I rushed to on Preview Night. Between the Eyezon figure and the products Mark Nagata's company was carrying for Cronic...it was tough deciding what to drop money on. Why not all of it?
They also had a number of new - in production type - figures on display. The figure to the left of the Eyezon in the above photo is one of those. Mark will be curating the Toy Karma show at Rotofugi this September, and that figure is sorta the mascot. I'm liking it...even if it's still just a prototype.
Also, the Miao figure, by Zakka Mono, is an interesting piece that's an obvious take on the Maneki Neko statues (also known as Lucky Cat's). There are plans for a Miao featuring the artwork of Simone Legno (tokidoki).
