After a successful Kickstarter campaign with concept artist Daytoner in early 2020 we unleashed Master 9 Eyes in 3-D form as a vivid red 1/6 scale polyresin statue and 1/12 scale vinyl art toy. Realizing the popularity of M9E we soon added several more versions of this beloved chunky samurai to the collection, including PHNTM P4ND4, Dark Starr and Anti Gravity.
By November last year, in time for DesignerCon 2020, we unveiled our Master 9 Eyes unique Artist Editions which were the result of collaborations with 6 artists handpicked for their incredible talent and vision. These 6 custom versions were made into limited exclusive collectibles. And the original puffy-jacketed prototypes? They’re about to take on a life of their own in the Metaverse!
A year has passed and the evolution of our first designer art toy has not stopped, in fact it has accelerated. On Friday November 12th 2021 at DesignerCon in Anaheim California, we’re hosting a Physical to Digital Exhibition as well as our first NFT Auction. And just like that, M9E transforms to M9Ξ.
Our 3-D renders of nine Master 9 Eyes create a bridge between the physical and digital world. Our first Collection of NFTs include digital copies of the six Artist Editions created by Paskalis Kunang @mrkumkum, Tokyo Jesus @tokyo_jesus, KASPR_ @thisiskaspr, Crack @crackthetoy, Quiccs @quiccs and David Bishop @rundmbvinyl. The final three are Datoyner’s original Red M9E, PHNTM P4ND4 and a grey prototype for the purists out there.

NFT Collectors take note that bidding starts on Friday November 12th at 5 PM PST and ends on Sunday November 14th at 4 PM PST on OpenSea.
Highest bidders will not only claim ownership of their respective NFT, but also the physical one-of-a-kind M9E itself. This project is sure to make waves in our Industry and stake PureArts’ place in the NFT Community.
We’re thrilled to share this project and we invite you to follow the M9Ξ Project on social media to stay on top of all news, updates and drops:
