As reported in our story HERE, high-end statue maker PureArts was branching out with designer toys. Their first collaboration is with cyber artist DayToner for collectibles based on his robo-samurai character Master 9 Eyes (M9E). The Kickstarter for that project has now launchedand can be found HERE.

A pledge of around $60US will grant you access to the Kozuka Kit – a red 6-inch vinyl figure of M9E. For more ambitious collectors, $350 will get you the Wakisashi Kit: Master 9 Eyes as a large 1/6th scale polyresin statue. Unlocks include a cool PHNTM P4ND4 variant of this piece.

The project is already off to a strong start with over $14,000 pledged of the $40,027 goal (as of 2-4). With 34 days left to go, odds are good that collectors will be receiving their M9E figure(s) when it releases this September!
