TENACIOUS TOYS × PLAYFUL GORILLA

Tenacious Toys is GOING APE this week! Their next shop exclusive is a Playful Gorilla black and green colorway of the awesome Master9Eyes figure by Daytoner and PureArts!

After collaborating for nearly a decade, this is the first official vinyl toy exclusive that Playful Gorilla (Alex) has created for Tenacious Toys. There will be more!

The Master9Eyes figure is a 5.5″ tall, 7″ wide vinyl figure in scale with other 1/12-scale action figures. Designed by Daytoner and produced by PureArts, the M9E features six (!!) swords that can fit into its backpack as well as in the hands, plus a handy base that plugs into the foot.

The Tenacious Exclusive R177A colorway by Playful Gorilla further fleshes out his overarching storyline of the characters that inhabit his world:

The Tactical Urban Fighting Force (T.U.F.F.) has been compromised. A new dark faction has taken control. Those few that rebel against the new regime are being taken out one by one. The last of the rebellion needs your help. Agent P.Rilla is about to take his last stand – to stand up for what’s right. He won’t quit even tho the odds are against him. The battle cry can be heard for miles…Don the colors! Fight for what’s right and LEAD!! Who will come to his aid… who amongst us can fight the war that’s coming. Master 9 Eyes has heard the call… Master 9 Eyes has donned the colors… M9E-R177A is on his way!!

The M9E R177A edition is limited to just 160 units at $105 each. They will drop on the Tenacious Toys PureArts page (and homepage) at noon sharp on Friday July 16th.

Stay tuned to the @TenaciousToys IG this week for a live unboxing video!

About Master9eyes:

This original character design of a futuristic, chunky samurai is the perfect blend of both a badass character with perfectly designed shapes. His overall look is completed by his puffed jacket and stylish katana backpack. His opponents usually underestimated him due to his chunky appearance… but he always had a better stance. There are rumors about the ninth eye. Some say it’s his MK II combat sensor others say it’s instinct.
