The 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). The Kickstarter has been getting some much deserved praise throughout the toy community. We’re happy to report that not only has this Kickstarter reached it’s funding goal, it looks like it will skyrocket well past it to unlock most of their stretch goals! Here’s more info on the Beasts of the Mesozoic line, as well as the stretch goals.
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.
Stretch goal raptor figures are $35 for US backers or $37 for international backers (no additional shipping is required when adding to a raptor figure pledge tier) and can be an added on to your existing pledge.
