How do I pledge for add-on rewards? I don’t see a button for them.

Add-ons are incentive rewards for those pledging for a tier of $35 or more. To include add-ons with your pledge, simply add the amount needed to cover the add-on item(s) to your existing pledge. After the campaign is over, you will be able to select your rewards with the Backerkit survey. Last updated: Thu, May 12 2016 11:57 pm EDT

I only want the exclusive blue raptor. How can I only get that one?

The add-on raptors such as stretch goals and the exclusive blue raptor are only eligible for backers pledging for a tier of $35 or more. Last updated: Fri, May 13 2016 12:01 am EDT

Can I switch out raptors within the raptor packs?

Sorry this is not possible. The raptor packs are set tiers and will be fulfilled according to that specific tier. However you can add-on other tier levels to any existing pledge to get the ‘pack’ that you want. Last updated: Fri, May 13 2016 12:24 am EDT

I want a raptor and the exclusive print, but they’re two different tiers. What do I do?

Pledge for the exclusive print since it is limited. Then add on the amount for the raptors plus the appropriate shipping. This will be sorted out with the BackerKit survey later. Last updated: Fri, May 13 2016 12:24 am EDT

If I am only pledging for the exclusive print. How do I add the exlcusive blue raptor?

Simply add the $30 for the blue raptor and the appropriate amount for shipping ($10 for US, $25 for INT). This is the same if you want to add on a stretch goal raptor ($35 each). Last updated: Fri, May 13 2016 12:26 am EDT

In the construction video, the raptor looks very fragile. Will the final production figure be like this?

Absolutely not. The figure being assembled in the video is a resin prototype. The final production raptors will be made of PVC, ABS, and firm rubber materials. It will be fully assembled and painted ready to be posed and played with! Last updated: Fri, May 13 2016 12:24 am EDT

I noticed that in some of the photos the posing rod is bending. Will the final version do this?

No. Again the posing rods pictured are prototypes and made of resin. The final versions will be made of clear ABS plastic. Very rigid and sturdy. Last updated: Fri, May 13 2016 12:27 am EDT

Why is shipping the same for Canada as it is everywhere else when we’re so close to the United States?

International shipping rates here in the US have gone up in recent months and it now costs about the same to ship to Canada as it does to ship to the other side of the world. I’m not sure why, but that’s what I have to work with. The International shipping rates being charged here are actually a little lower than they should be.

Will these figures be sold again after the Kickstarter?

Yes. After the Kickstarter orders are fulfilled, I plan to sell the remaining product on my website, creative-beast.com. However I expect the prices to increase about $5 each. Last updated: Fri, May 13 2016 12:24 am EDT

Will you be adding larger raptors such as Deinonychus, Utahraptor, and Dakotaraptor as stretch goals?

No. That would mean a change of scale and I’d rather put those out with all new sculpts instead of sharing parts with the smaller raptors. Last updated: Fri, May 13 2016 12:24 am EDT

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
