Level52 Studios has partnered with sculptor Kieran McKay (of Kingdom Death fame) and character artist Jordi Navarrete to create a new line of frightfully adorable collectible statuettes. Based on classic monsters from pop-culture, the MOKO Monster Girls are limited edition and lovingly crafted to evoke the playful side of everybody's favorite supernatural fiends.

The name MOKO came to be when one of our team members—part-Japanese and a competent speaker of the language—suggested a portmanteau of the words moe 萌え (slang for "love of cute things") and kowaii こわい (scary). Punchy, and meaningful, eh?

This fundraising effort is for creating a production run of Frankie, the first release in the MOKO Monster Girls series. We've got the prototype, the tooling master, and the factory ready to go at the green light, but we're depending on YOU to show us that this series is something that collectors are interested in buying into. 

By pre-ordering your copy of Frankie through this campaign, you're ensuring that we can pay to produce this edition and invest in producing the next series release with Kieran and Jordi!

Ain't she a doll? Kieran and Jordi have put a lot of effort into creating a fun and alluring series of characters that will be a thrill to collect. Check out a bit of the process of how we made Frankie below:
