Final reward fulfillment will begin soon- please check your addresses!

The wait is nearly over for the Wave 2 deluxe raptors as they have now safely reached the Fulfillrite warehouse in Lakewood, New Jersey. Final reward shipping for those with orders containing any of the six Wave 2 items will begin on Tuesday, May 29th. For those that have moved since pledging for the 2016 Kickstarter campaign, I highly encourage you to check your address in BackerKit to make sure it is correct. If the order can not be delivered or if it is accepted at the wrong address, the package may be unrecoverable. To check your order in BackerKit, please enter your email at this link. Or you may private message me here for additional assistance.

Deluxe Raptors: Wave 2 arrival from China

As for the raptors figures themselves, the helpful people at Fulfillrite were kind enough to snap some photos of the new arrivals for us. Take a look!

I can't express how great it feels to know that ALL of the products (over 30,000 units total) are now finally in-stock and ready to be shipped out! Consider for a moment what we've accomplished together... it is quite incredible.

As we approach the final stage of the Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series reward fulfillment, it will soon come time to officially end the project on BackerKit and say 'farewell' to the pre-order store. As of the end of Memorial Day, May 28th, the BackerKit store will be closed for good and creative-beast.com will become the home for all of the available Beasts of the Mesozoic items. 

But wait, there's more...

Thank You

Again I can not thank everyone enough for the tremendous support and love that you all have shown for this project- you, the Kickstarter backers, have made this action figure series and thus the entire Beasts of the Mesozoic line, a reality. And thanks to the additional support through BackerKit, we now have the opportunity to extend the line for years to come. Fulfillment and customer service will be my priority in the coming weeks, but I will be putting together a proper video 'thank you' soon looking back on this project and discussing the future of the line, including details about the next Kickstarter campaign, Ceratopsians series 1.

So be sure to stay up to date with all of the latest news on the raptors, ceratopsians, and more by following me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. There is still much more in the works from Creative Beast Studio and the Beasts of the Mesozoic product line, even a few surprises...

hmm...
hmm...

 Take care everyone- bye for now and enjoy the holiday weekend!

      @SShaw- the BackerKit store was not exclusive and has been open to the general public since it began in 2016. Keeping the store exclusive to Kickstarter to backers would have substantially limited the potential that this line has to offer as many people found out about it after the campaign. It's important to remember that without the Kickstarter backers, there would have been no funding for the project to exist at all and that's why there were incentives such as exclusives, discounted bundle triers, and the lowest prices for all items. And while the Kickstarter backers have priority when it comes to order fulfillment, all orders are shipped as soon as possible once stocked.

      Forgive me, I may not be understanding what the backerkit store does or who has (/had) access to it. I don't use Kickstarter a lot.

      Does this mean people who did not back the project two (three?) years ago could have simply ordered them this past weekend, gotten a discount, and gotten them just as fast as the backers still waiting for their order after over a year past the projected delivery? Or was this only for existing backers? :( I'm confused.

      @ John- yes here are the color inspirations: https://ksr-ugc.imgix.net/assets/018/966/088/03bbc7157fe76f87c1728b23bd92fa1e_original.jpg…

      @Jack and Tutothe- please message me or email me at hsilva20@gmail.com and I can help you with your orders. Thanks!

      @Faelrin- Thanks so much and you're welcome. :) As for for the teaser, it is new art from Jonathan Kuo. More will be revealed soon.

      Assuming this is the last update for this campaign (I will be keeping check on that FB page for the ceratopsians, etc), it definitely has been a long road. I'm really glad I got to be a part of this, and hopefully the next (whenever it may come). I know I've said this like a billion times by now, but thanks David (and co, and backers, etc) for everything for opening the door to this possibility, and making these figures a reality, and the journey along the way.

      Anyways the art kind of looks like Kuo's style. Interesting. I wonder what that could be for. Repainted accessory pack critters (and white nestlings) in production soon perhaps? Although it does look like a kind of bird too. Looking forward to it, whatever it is.

      Not sure how to private message but I'd like to add on to my order if possible - I'd like to add on the fan color saurornitholestes if possible!

      Sorry to bother you but it has been a while. I know that I did make a commitment and want to purchase it but cannot find my original order. Can you assist me please. Thanks!

      Ooof, placed a last minute order. But forgot you could've just added it to my shipment coming up lol.

      Anyways, is it possible to re-post somewhere which birds each raptor gets their coloration from? I know it was posted early in the Kickstarter, I just always thought the fact that you based the coloration on todays birds facinating and a great idea.

    9. David Silva Creator on

      @Casey- good question. Yes all orders, including new ones, will ship next week regardless of purchases over this weekend.

    10. Casey Shiray on

      If I purchase through BackerKit, will my order ship May 29th as well? I have an existing pre-order already, but wasn’t sure if new orders would ship at the same time.

      The only thing I’m missing is the red raptor 😭
