I have these characters but I want to go to cycles but when I do the characters goes grey and purple. (Essentially The textures get removed from the character(s). Is there a way to switch to cycles without losing the textures?

I will leave one of the characters as a example. So can I go to cycles and keep textures? https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mb2by9y7d91q2t2/AACvhUDp_MZ7ZKHchibT9tlYa?dl=0
