Wave 1 Raptors Shipping Soon!

 

The wait for the Beasts of the Mesozoic Deluxe Raptor action figures to begin shipping out into the world is nearly over! I have received confirmation of the China cargo shipment reaching the US safely last week and the goods are expected to be at the Fulfillrite warehouse in time to ship by this Friday. As we prepare for their imminent arrival, there are a few points I'd like to go over here.

 Wave 1 Raptors will remain available on Backerkit until Wave 2 arrives

Instead of moving the Wave 1 deluxe raptors off of BackerKit to creative-beast.com as was done for the Nestlings, Accessory Packs, and Build-a-Raptors after they arrived, I've decided to keep the Wave 1 raptors available on BackerKit with their Wave 2 cousins until all of them are stateside in May. Since the plan to ship them all together from the factory had to be altered, I can at least keep them together on BackerKit a little longer at the pre-order price which also allows those with existing Wave 2 orders the option to add them if they want. In addition, they will also be available on creative-beast.com.

Split shipping and Address changes

As mentioned in the previous update, the split shipping option is still available for those with orders containing raptors from both Wave 1 and Wave 2. You may choose to split your order at any time before Wave 2 becomes available. To ship the additional package, the cost is $11 for US and $22 for international (base shipping rates) and this will cover the postage for shipping your Wave 1 raptors ahead of your Wave 2 raptors.

Also, please be sure that your addresses are correct. Many people have moved since ordering so if you have any doubts or would like to change your address, please contact me. I can only ship to the address on file with BackerKit. 

If assistance is needed in either case, please message me here on Kickstarter or email me at dsilva20@creative-beast.com.

Build-a-Raptor paint Tutorial - 'Roadrunner Raptor'

In the spirit of people painting up their Build-a-Raptors, I was inspired to paint one of my own and then thought, 'why not document it too?', so that's what I did. The entire process can be viewed at this gallery. There are too many steps to include here, but below are a few highlights.

For those interested in a place to discuss Beasts of the Mesozoic and other dinosaur/ toy-related topics, there's a new forum up now for all of your needs. Project supporter Tayler VanWeeteringen was kind enough to create this brand new Beasts of the Mesozoic community hub! Be one of the first to join in on the discussions here! And in addition, you can also check in with other community members on Discord here.

 

Nestlings Preview Video

Adding to the Accessory Pack preview videos, I recently posted a preview video for the Nestlings figures as well. In it I go over the figures, the features, and posing options- take a look!

      It's been so long since I've placed/updated my order that I don't even remember what I ordered or what address I used. I cannot seem to find my information on backerkit - how can I check the status of my order?

      Where can we look to check if we selected split shipping again?

      The collector photos as well as the collector paint jobs are very well done. The road runner Raptor you created is funny (and looks good). I especially like the stark blue face of RiAI Sant's custom paint job.
