Wave 1 Raptors Shipping has Begun- PLEASE READ!

Posted by David Silva (Creator)

Wave 1 Raptors have Arrived and Fulfillment has commenced! 

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Wave 1 raptors have indeed arrived at the New Jersey Fulfillrite warehouse and the first shipments went out yesterday to the tune of over 1200 packages! But there are still many more to go out...



Please Check Your Address on BackerKit

After shipping began yesterday, I heard from a few backers who'd missed the previous update and unfortunately had their reward shipped to their old address. I know mentioning this now may seem too little too late for some, but I was under the impression that BackerKit emails Kickstarter update alerts to everyone who's placed an order, so I apologize to those who may not have received that email. I've tested the system myself and it seems to work, but I see now that this may not work for everyone so moving forward I will also send a private group message as well. My sincere apologies to those that I was not able to reach in time and I will do all I can to assist in correcting the issue.

How do I know if my order has shipped?

For those who's rewards shipped yesterday, you would have received an email confirmation with a tracking number.

If you would like to change your address for this wave or for the one in May, please message me as soon as possible. To allow people time to check and edit their addresses, I am holding off on the remainder of fulfillment until Monday, March 19th. 


Split Shipping Error  

Some of the people who ordered the Accessory Packs, Nestlings, and/or Build-a-Raptors have accidentally had their orders split for the Wave 1 raptors. I just want those people to know that this was unexpected and it happened automatically as a result of having your address already confirmed in BackerKit for the previous shipment. For those who also ordered Wave 2 items, those will still ship in May as planned.


That's all for this brief update. Please allow a little extra time for me to respond to your messages as I have been receiving a lot lately, but I will get back to each and everyone of you as soon as I can. Thanks everyone!!

      Jax, check out Update #74 (January 30). There are lists for both Wave 1 and 2 there. :)

    4. Jax Brunsting on

      Is there a list anywhere of which raptors are Wave 1 and which are Wave 2? I can't seem to find one.

    5. Darth Biomech on

      Where can I see in which wave my order is at? I see that there are people who already got their preorders, and this makes me nervous and paranoid. X)

      @Katie- thanks! Actually looking at your orders, the Dromaeosaurus shipped because it was a separate order. The other orders that haven't shipped contain wave 2 raptors.

    7. Katie Dresel

      Thanks for the update about shipping. I was a little confused as to why in Wave 1 I only got 1 Dromaeosaurus and none of the other wave 1 raptors yet. I betting I'm one of the people who had their orders accidentally split up since I didn't recieve any notice of the fan choice dromaeosaurus, velociraptor, pryoraptor fan choice, or atrociraptor as being sent yet. Plus I just went and ordered myself a second dromaeosaurus today because the first was just so amazing I had to get it as a gift for one of my friends who majored in paleontology.

      Ah answered my own question! Sorry, I should have re-read everything first!

    9. Riley Carbaugh on

      I am curious then, since I had pre-ordered all the raptors (kicking myself for missing my chance to grab a red Velociraptor though), will my order be held off until next month for wave 2 so everything ships together?

    10. David Silva Creator on

      Hi All- For those who have an order that hasn't shipped, it's because not all of your items are in-stock yet. If you have any questions about your order, please message me here and I'll be happy to help. Thanks!

      I've received the red Velociraptor but I haven't received any notices about the other Wave 1 raptors I ordered. What do I do to check and make sure they're still coming?

    12. Shaun Barrows on

      Still waiting on a ship notice

      Got Velociraptor, Atrociraptor and Balaur today. Just waiting on Tsaagan

      Received my Velociraptor mongoliensisi today and want to say that the long wait was worth it. The painting is excellent and I love the look of the whole figure. Very posable as well. Now I kind of wish I had room for more! A huge undertaking well done David! Thanks!

      I want to repeat how attractive the releases so far are. I keep my desert pack and "desert" nestlings near my work desk and regularly look at them and repose them. You ought to win some sort of toy reward--I wonder if any other toy maker has, with such a small team, designed, organized, and successful rolled out such a massive production line.

      Is Saurornitholestes langstoni wave 2?

      Since I was one of the people that had figures arrive in January (plus February with the additional accessory packs I ordered), is that why my order shipped yesterday? I guess I'm in the clear though since my address is correct and I did have my deluxe raptor order split for the Wave 1 raptors to ship separately and earlier from the Wave 2 raptors. I can't wait to finally have these in my hands, and of course I can't wait to try out posing them too (on display with the accessory packs).
