Build-a-Raptors, Accessory Packs, and Nestlings are shipping soon!

Posted by David Silva (Creator)

Fulfillment for Build-a-Raptors, Accessory Packs, and Nestlings begins on Monday, January 15th!

As of yesterday all of the Accessory Packs, Nestlings, and Build-a-Raptor products have arrived at the Fulfillrite warehouse in New Jersey and we are ready to begin shipping! As they will be integrated with the BackerKit order information, I wanted to give you all the opportunity to please double check your shipping addresses, as shipping will begin on Monday morning, January 15th! If you have moved since placing your order and have not updated your shipping info- now is the time. If you need help finding your order, you can always contact the helpful folks at BackerKit (direct email: ), or message me here on  Kickstarter and we'll get it sorted out for you!

In case you missed the last update, below is a chart showing which items will be going out and to whom. Keep in mind that Kickstarter rewards will have priority. 

(Note: deluxe raptors are currently estimated to begin shipping  near the end of February, but mostly in March.)

Here are few images of the product at the Fulfillrite warehouse:





I know I've said it before, but I really appreciate all of the support and patience of everyone thus far. It's so satisfying to know that we are finally beginning fulfillment! I can't help but to wish that all of the raptor product was shipping now, but this is a great start. Thank you all for helping to make this happen!


New Video Reviews!

I also wanted to mention here some new videos uploaded recently for Build-A-Raptor sets!

First we have a great new video review of the Velcoiraptor-type Build-a-Raptor set from 'Pixel Dan' Danny Eardly!

And here's an unboxing video from David Brooks over at Jurassic Collectibles for the Atrociraptor Build-a-Raptor set! He also gives a nice look at the BotM catalog I made last year as well.

Expect a full review of this set on his channel soon! (note: he mentions Everything Dinosaur exclusivity, though this is only meant for the UK.)


Pre-Order Store Status

All of the Beasts of the Mesozoic products will remain up on the BackerKit pre-order store throughout this month.

In February I plan to move the Build-a-Raptors, Accessory Packs, and Nestlings to the new and improved (teased in a previous update) set to launch early next month. The deluxe raptor figures, however, will remain available on the BackerKit store at the pre-order prices until they are ready to ship and then they too will transfer over to my website. 


That's all for now. I will have another update in a few weeks focusing on the progress of the deluxe raptor product with all of the most up-to-date news and photos.

In the meantime, be sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram,  and Twitter for all of the latest project news.

Talk to you soon!

      Thanks David! Will be on the lookout for it! :)

      Thanks for the comments guys!

      @Rosanna- that's an excellent idea, I would be happy to feature people's painted Buid-a-Raptors on my social media!

      @Michael- You should receive an email once your order ships which will contain a tracking number. In the event that you don't see the email, the tracking number will be on your BackerKit order page. Shipping methods will be FedEx for US orders and USPS Priority for international orders.

      @Faelrin- Yes there will be tracked (see above response) and I actually do still have a few catalogs available. Message me about it if you're interested. ;)

      @ S.Larama- Good point, but the shipments can still go out via FedEX which is the shipping method for US orders. The holiday only affects USPS.

      January 15th is a MLK day so no post deliveries on that day.

      I can't wait to receive the first batch of figures from this line. No doubt those will tide me over while I wait for the others to get finalized and shipped. Of course checking in on the FB updates will too. When the figures are shipped will we be able to track their shipping? Also are those catalogue things still available? Is there a way to get one?

      Fantastic!! So great to see this project coming full circle now! When the orders ship, will we be sent a tracking number? Which carrier will be doing the delivering? Their site said they use USPS, UPS and FedEx.

      I'm soo excited, I can't wait to paint my Build a Raptor, and start seeing how other people are painting theirs! Are you going to feature any (nice, of course,) on your Instagram like you've shared fanart?
