Additional figures and accessory packs will be available as stretch goals are unlocked. Those figures include: Condor; Kerak; Swarm Trooper; Down Range; Kickstarter Exclusive Steel Brigade.

Pix Brix is a pixel art building brick that allows the artist to create 2D pixel art and 3D builds with only 1 unique piece design. They require no base plate, water, iron, or glue to adhere together. Pix Brix are fun, safe, re-usable, plus major brick brand compatible.

There's the new PB Tool, which has 3 functions for adding and removing Pix Brix: the tip can be used to pick up and insert bricks; the tip can also push bricks out in specific spots of 2D builds; a removable wedge piece can be used to separate layers of builds by pushing it into small openings or corners.

Also, they're expanding the current Pix Brix color palette from 15 to 32 colors. They will be divided into 3 series: Light, Medium, and Dark.

And there's a Pix Brix app, which is now in development. The Pix Brix app will have a paint function with all 32 colors which can be used to create custom pixel art that can be saved and shared. 

Currently, there are backing levels up to $175. And all pledges above $10 will get you some type of Pix Brix set. This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Wednesday May 8th 2019 at 12:58PM ET.
