Animal Warriors of the Kingdom Playset by DnJ Toys

In related Animal Warriors of the Kingdom news, D&J Toys has shared more pics of the upcoming AWOK playset. This offering was part of Animal Warriors of the Kingdom Kickstarter campaign and will be shipped to backers soon (quick FYI: For those that contributed at this level, the Playset is being shipped separately from the figures). 

From D&J: As the Animal Warriors of the Kingdom figures are shipping, I wanted to get some shots of the Temple set with the figures. Since they are shipping separate, I thought people who got in on those would like to see the figures with the set for size comparison. It’ll ship soon. This continuous cold, wanna be winter that is remaining has held up a lot of progress. A lot of the process is needing warmer weather. If there’s interest while you wait, I’ll get some more shots out doors

Make sure to keep it locked to the D&J Toys Facebook Page for more pics as they’re shared this weekend. Did you contribute towards the the Playset? If not, do you wish you did? Get in on the conversation already in progress after the break on the.

Animal Warriors of the Kingdom – Army Builder B Action Needed

**UPDATE** – Issue resolved! Packing continues! 

_______________

Heads Up, AWOK Tribe! If you got in on the Animal Warriors of the Kickstarter Campaign, then it’s important that you check your order to see if “Army Builder B” was listed as one of your items. 

The Spero Studios team is well in to packing your order, but here’s where the request for information comes in: Backerkit is only showing the team “Army Builder B” as a selected reward with a figure count, but no name and no photo. If you selected “Army Builder B”, please reach out to Jason at jason.bienvenu@gmail.com in order to let him know what figures you want. The sooner you do so, the sooner they can finish packing your rewards! 

Are you excited to get your Animal Warriors of the Kingdom figures in hand? You know we are! Join in on the excitement after the break right here on the Cobra Island Forums

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
