MAN-E-NEWS// New Captain Maxx and Mecha Nekoron protos from Max Toy Company…

It’s been a busy week already for Max Toy collectors with the re-opening of the exclusive membership club on Monday, so it came with great surprise today to find that Mark Nagata has revealed not one but two new protos that should be heading to the Max Toy shop soon!

First up comes the much anticipated collaboration with Japanese toy company, Frenzy, the re-imaging of Max Toy‘s signature spaceman, Captain Maxx. Sculpted in a new standard size, the figure is set to come with 2 different helmet variations (Version A and Version C, a nod to Nagata’s favourite hero!), a newer, sleeker version (right), and one more faithful to the original (left). Nagata has stated that a test shot of the newly revived character should be available at Design Fiesta in May, so be sure to stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details…

Next up we have Mecha Nekoron, the would-be robot companion to Negora! Designed and sculpted by Makino-san of TTToys, the micro sized mecha cat stands at just 2.5″ tall. Coming with his own Mewship, the tops and bottoms of both figures can be removed and interchanged to create a number of different variations! With iron molds in the process of being made, expect to see this little guy debut at Design Fiesta (with a healthy surplus promised for us collectors in the West!). Stay tuned for test shots soon…
