XM Studios, Singapore-based homegrown global award-winning design studio and producer of hand-crafted, individually hand painted art statue collectibles as well as the licensee of more than 15 top IPs, including Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Warner Bros., Hasbro, Godzilla, Ultraman, Sanrio and more, will display some of their latest statue releases at the mall’s Atrium at Level 1.
The company is also building their own metaverse, XM Cosmos, to nurture various pop culture communities in the digital space and to provide them with access to other metaverses. This includes a 3D retail gallery that will enable its community to browse and shop its collection of physical statues from the comfort of their own devices. Entry into such metaverses will be done through options such as the XM Pass, an NFT that will be made available on all marketplaces.
XM Pass owners will also have access to future digital art drops and specially built rooms that will enable collectors to display their collection.
To see this vision through, XM has partnered with companies, such as 2MR Labs, to serve as its external community partner and Dark Meta as its internal technical enabler.
