We don’t post every Kickstarter that comes across our desk here at Toyark.com but some are just too cool to pass up! Just launched yesterday – Beasts of the Mesozoic is a high articulation scientifically accurate line of Dinosaur action figures by sculptor David Silva (who also currently works at NECA). Based on what we see over on the Kickstarter page, their relatively reasonable goal of $125,000 to get up and running is already well on it’s way with over $40,000 and 450+ backers in the first 24 hours! Check the details below and hit the KS page to show your support!
Beasts of the Mesozoic is a line of scientifically accurate, highly detailed, and articulated dinosaur action figures. Being a serious toy collector myself, I’ve seen great advancements in the toy market the past several years with innovative companies raising the bar of what’s possible with detail, articulation, and value. However, despite my love for dinosaurs and for toys, my dinosaur toy shelf is surprisingly small compared to the other collections I have. Why? Well they simply haven’t changed much at all in the past several decades and honestly aren’t that good compared to other action figures. It just doesn’t seem like you get much for your money. I for one am ready for some good dinosaur toys worthy of my shelf space and my money, aren’t you?
This first series of Beasts of the Mesozoic will be the 1/6th scale Raptor Series consisting of mid-sized dromaeosaurs and related species. The campaign will begin with three species: Velociraptor, Atrociraptor, and Tsaagan with more to follow as the campaign progresses. (I will also be adding a Kickstarter exclusive figure the second week of the campaign). Each figure will have 26 points of articulation, realistic detail and movement based on the most recent scientific discoveries, and will also feature a base with posing rod as well as alternate running toes.
