Max Toy Co. x Gargamel Desura!!!


Once in a while, you get a notice on a toy release that really gets you amped. This one would be such a toy release. Several days ago, Mark Nagata from Max Toy Co sent a notice to his Fan Club Subcribers alerting us that he had not one, but two exclusive Gargamel Desuras to offer. The first was a clear purple with gold spray and the second was an un-painted clear purple Desura. I'm not kidding when I jumped in my chair at work and immediately sent back an email saying I would take both. The problem is that there were only 30 of the un-painted which I really, really, really wanted. Only 30 for like 80 members or something. I think I even sent another email and dropped a phone call to Mark with some lame bribe or begging or both!


It was the perfect storm: Desura is one of my favorite sculps, nothing is better than clear purple vinyl (except maybe clear blue) and there was a painted and un-painted version! I was in a panic! Long story short, I had to wait 2-3 anxious days before I got the invoice that I had won the member lottery and scored both! As you can see from the pics, these guys do not disappoint. The painted version turned out much better than the pics and the un-painted is just amazing too. Thanks Mark! I can hardly wait for your next toy. Cronic Maverasu sounds good! Clear Smogon sounds good!

You lucky, lucky, bastard.
That's it, I'm moving to the West Coast. I tried to get one, but I'm not a member--doh!

Congrats on your score! They look great!

Could you keep an eye out for the SDCC clear blue one for me? I'll make it worth your while!

you definitely need to become a member. that's #1. I learned that the hard way on the last Maxtoy co exclusive.

as for the SDCC clear blue. oh my, oh my. that one is gonna be tough. I know some serious collectors after that little guy. He has to be one of my favorites in the entire collection. good luck!

Dang! I was hoping I'd find one unnoticed. I'm up against big-dogs, eh?

It will be mine...oh will be mine.

hahhahaha! I like your passion about the SDDC Desura!

Cronic did a pinstripe on that bad boy for a recent toy show in Japan and was selling them for like $100!! damn, I would have bought like six of em! One is going on Yahoo Japan Auctions for almost $400 USD! insane!!

I still want one, though!

Yeah, I think it was released at the last Wonderfest in Feb. Another cool idea.$400 is insane, though! $100 is insane, but I would probably do it. Desura is my only toy weakness...!

I wonder if they will have anything Desura-ish at WF summer '07.
