Velociraptor osmolskae red variant available now on BackerKit


The Final Raptor

For those following me on social media, you may have already heard... there's one more raptor left, and he's a bit late to the party. 

Since beginning this campaign last April, there have been many welcome surprises, and this one is no exception. In an effort to utilize the remaining Kickstarter Exclusive blue Velociraptor osmolskae stock, I contacted the production factory to see if it would be possible to make a running-change to the figure run, basically trading the blue for red and changing the eye color while still using the same paint masks and patterning. Thankfully, they are willing to accommodate the change and just like that, we have one more raptor to add to the flock! Now even those who discovered this project after the Kickstarter campaign can collect each of the twelve raptor species.

Here's a look at the new prototype for the Velociraptor osmolskae red variant.

Since this is a variant, quantities are more limited than usual (less than 300 units) so I don't expect it to be available for too long. This can be ordered separately or added to your existing order.

The pre-order price is $35 (add $1 US or $3 INT for combined shipping). If you would like to add on to your existing order, please message me. Funds can be added with Paypal if preferred (a small fee may apply). I have been getting many messages about this figure already, so please allow about 24 hrs or so for me to get back to you. However in most cases it shouldn't take that long.

On a similar note, for those here with multiple orders, I can combine them for you, but this will be done by request only- it is not automatic. Also, there are still 50 unanswered surveys, so if you think you may be one of them, please check to make sure your order is completed. I can send you a link to your order if needed.

The Velociraptor osmolskae red variant is up on the BackerKit pre-order store now.

 And on a final note-

Figure production is going well right now as the parts continue to be tooled. This process will likely take a few more weeks due to the high parts count. Once they are completed, I will be receiving the first unpainted test shot samples from the factory which will be very exciting! I will keep you all posted on the progress, in the meantime keep an eye on my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts for regular updates.

Until next time!

      @Mike B.- that's a valid question, thank you. This figure was not planned and was only recently confirmed by the production factory that they could make it. Unlike the others, this is the only 'variant' in that it represents a running change during the production run still maintaining the same design as the original, but with colors swapped out. Since it could not have been factored into the original Kickstarter tiers, it can only be added as a separate item at this point.

      @Sim- sorry, but I can not make parts changes at this stage. It would cause much confusion and delays with the parts assembly layouts would have to be reconfigured.

      Hi David,

      If the tooling process will likely take a few more weeks to complete, do you think the Zhenyuanlong and Dromaeosaurus figures could get longer tibia parts?

      @Mike B. It's in addition. So yes, you pay for it separately.

      Sending you a message now - Would also like the new variant.

      I'm confused, is this included in the All-In option or do we have to pay extra for it to get it?
