Maximo (Toycom)

Maximo is a video game character created by Capcom for the Playstation 2. What many people don't know is that the game is based in the Ghost N' Goblins universe. Yes, the very same Ghost N' Goblins that punished gamers on the original NES for having the nerve to try and play it. To say that the original NES game is brutally hard is an understatement.

But we digress. Maximo: Ghost to Glory as it was known on the Playstation 2, is not as difficult to play. As such, it was met with fairly high praise from fans and review sites. It even spawned a sequel, and there were rumblings in the gaming world a third installment (that to date has not been released).

Toycom released six figures in 2001 to coincide with the game's release. The figures were sculpted meticulously to that of their video game counterparts. Each also featured highly detailed accessories, also precisely sclupted to match the look of the game. Toycom truly did an amazing job with the line.

With the success of the above figures, Toycom quickly put into production a second run. With this came two additional figures - Bako la Bas and Ghastly Gus. This time around, the entire package was encased in a plastic clamshell.

These figures are fairly common on secondary markets, and as such they don't sell for that much. The average sale price is around $8.00 to $10.00 each. This is a far cry from the hundreds of dollars it can set you back to collect other video game related action figures that have come and gone in the past.

  1. I can take or leave the first game, but I really enjoyed the second. Would love to get a figure of Maximo himself. They should have made a figure of Grim, too.

    1. Same here. Grim would have been awesome to have as a figure.
