About this project

Hi! Thanks for checking out our Kick-starter project and with your help our Ghost in the Shell tank figure will become an awesome reality.

The Ghost in the Shell is an iconic anime film envisioned by legendary Japanese director Mamoru Oshii. The 1996 feature animation deals with the exploits of the cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi, a member of a covert operations division known as Section 9. The division specializes in fighting technology-related crimes and hi-tech enemies. One of these such enemies is the T08A2 Heavy Assault Tank.

This six-legged, spider like tank comes complete with machine guns and cannons attached to its imposing frame. We wanted to create a toy that was well designed, engineered and manufactured from premium materials. A product that your friends would stop in surprise and ask you where the hell you got it from??  There will be two releases of the figure; a regular pose-able figure of 5000(1/12th scale (12in x 19in), and a deluxe limited edition of 1000 (1/6th scale 22 in x 24in).  The limited edition will have battle damage, a diorama of the battle scene from the movie, and a battle torn Motoko Kusanagi (We are working on the figure having camouflage that is similar to the movies effects).

The tanks head as well as appendages can rotate and lock into position. The legs of the tank are pose-able and allow the figure to be placed in a number of very cool poses.

This figure measures at 12 inches in height and 24 inches in diameter.

So here is where you come in. Like most designers our dream is to eventually bring our ideas to life but funding, manufacturing and distributing a new product is a different story. Kickstarter is a great way to obtain our vision without sacrificing the integrity of the project. We love creating awesome works without the big company politics. By pledging at least $50 you are being put on the pre-order list for the T08A2 tank and helping make what we believe is a very cool project a  reality.

 We hope that you are inspired and excited by the idea and choose to support the project. Please spread the word and share with all your friends. Everyone knows at least one person that loves anime.

Thank you!
