Animal Warriors of the Kingdom are now Stateside

Word has come in from our friends at Spero Studios that the Animal Warriors of the Kingdom have arrived stateside! Here’s the scoop – 

Wow! It’s hard to believe its been 8 months since the Kickstarter ended. We want the tribe to know that we have literally been working nights, weekends and weeknights to make production go as smoothly as possible. 

We want to thank all of you and our amazing factory who was able to get the shipment out before the start of the Chinese New Year which would have delayed delivery another month.

Are the figures on there way to me?

Not just yet. We still have to go through the entire shipment and inventory and double check everyone’s mailing address. Sending out your rewards will take 2 to 3 weeks as we gather shipping material, boxes, postage, etc.

Thank you for your patience and in the meantime check out these photos I took. Sorry for the poor quality, Brandon will take better packaging photos in the next week or so.

Online store now taking pre-orders!

Some of you may have noticed that the Backerkit store is now closed but fear not! The official online store is now open and we are taking pre-orders. These will be processed and shipped with the Kickstarter rewards. Check it out at sperotoys.com

 Thank you all. We couldn’t have done it without the AWOK Tribe!

Love, Spero!

Jason & Brandon


There you have it! Are you excited to unleash your AWOK collection on to your shelves? We certainly are! Get in on the excitement with us after the break on the Cobra Island Forums!
