MaxToyCo-Monday: Toy Review of TriPus by Max Toy Co
TOY-STORY: 'From the depths of the sea comes a new Kaiju to battle Captain Maxx! Kaiju TriPus! Standing 10 inches tall with movable arms and legs. Comes bagged with header and backing card art. Figure and art by Mark Nagata.'
Priced at US$70 per (sans shipping) - the Kaiju TriPus Max Toy Company Original Creation soft vinyl is currently available here, as well check your fave retailer for availability (distributed by DKE Toys in the U.S.).
This creature of the deep is huge. At 10 inches tall, it feels larger and wider, with a decent heft to the bulk. Possessing two points of articulation in both arms, I liked that the claw-hands are individually covered in plastic as well (for protection, no doubt)
Lushily painted with the shades and colors reaching into the deepest crevices of toy-joy and the attitude of an angry kaiju waiting to clobber you with it's tentacles of doom! And I do like my toys with an attitude. TRIPUS from Max Toy Co oozes toy-intenseness from the first-look till the last, and I cannot get enough of him! This is really a toy?
Triple-eyes and triple-tentacled, the sculpt and production is immaculate. The paint app is thoroughly amazing and belies the fact that it IS a production piece and frankly, there is no reason that this should not be in any self-respecting kaiju-collectors' collection, tourist or hard-core. Desirable? YES.
