REVIEW: Captain Maxx
Max Toy Co. and Mark Nagata have released their first original figure. Captain Maxx is perfectly replicated from the only known surviving figure from the 1970’s. The figure and character are an homage to classic Japanese superheroes. Captain Maxx is here to kick some kaiju butt!
The figure comes bagged with a header and a backing card. The backing card gives the packaging some stability and also allows you to check out some cool drawings of Maxx. It also gives you a nice breakdown of Captain Maxx’s special suit.
Captain Maxx stands at 9” in height and is made of soft, rotocast vinyl. There are 5 points of articulation (arms, legs, neck, waist). The Captain Maxx helmet is removable, so you can reveal our superheroes true identity. There will be several color variants, including glow-in-the-dark and black. The original orange color is limited to a run of 150 pieces.
There is a certain niche of the designer toy market that revolves
around the Japanese inspired kaiju phenomenon. Even though Max Toy
Company is a fairly new venture, they are at the forefront of that
The Captain Maxx figure reminds me of toys of yesteryear, which is obviously what they were going for. The toy is
solid, so I wouldn’t be afraid of letting the kids play with it
(although it’s recommended for ages 15 and up). It's a high quality piece.
One issue you might encounter is removing Captain Maxx’s helmet. It
can be sort of a pain, since there is only an inch slit in the rear of
the helmet, but you need to pull the chin upwards.
Now that Max Toy Co. has released their superhero…now we need a supervillain.
