As production gets underway for the Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series (read our recent interview HERE), Creative Beast Studio announces a surprise new addition to the flock: the Velociraptor osmolskae red variant.

Since beginning this campaign last April, there have been many welcome surprises, and this one is no exception. In an effort to utilize the remaining Kickstarter Exclusive blue Velociraptor osmolskae stock, I contacted the production factory to see if it would be possible to make a running-change to the figure run, basically trading the blue for red and changing the eye color while still using the same paint masks and patterning. Thankfully, they are willing to accommodate the change and just like that, we have one more raptor to add to the flock! Now even those who discovered this project after the Kickstarter campaign can collect each of the twelve raptor species.

Since this is a variant, quantities are more limited than usual (less than 300 units) so I don’t expect it to be available for too long. This can be ordered separately or added to your existing order.

The Velociraptor osmolskae red variant is up on the BackerKit pre-order store now.
