Kickstarter: Martian Predator

Conspiracy theorists claim to have spotted an “alien soldier” on images returned from the Mars Curiosity Rover. Artist Andy Kurovets studied the infamous photograph, looking at figure lines, proportions, details and design 3d model. And based on that analysis, developed the sculpture based on the image called Martian Predator. Now, he's looking for funding on Kickstarter in order to produce the figure in resin.

The Martian Predator figure is available at the $55.00 funding level ($49.00 for early birds)

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thursday, June 1st 2017 at 4:00 PM EDT.

Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.
