BMOG 3rd Party Line Announced, New Reward Tiers, 53% funded

Less than two weeks in and BMOG is now 53% funded. While we put the finishing touches on Featherblight for first the stretch goal, we have some news!


Action figure artist Rob "Cheets" Roberts has generously donated his time to the project to let ten backers have a custom, hand-painted one-of-a-kind Ursenal & Mantax. If you're not familiar with his work, you can check out his gallery of customs here. There is a new tier for this reward, letting you get all of the Artmaster benefits as well as the custom painted set.


We have also lowered the costs on the "choose a future colorway release for Ursenal/Mantax" and the :co-design a BMOG figure" tiers. Each of these is a one-of-a-kind reward, so once they're gone, they're gone.


We still need your help keeping momentum going. Spread the word and lets make BMOG a reality!

http://doomkick.com/bmog-ursenal-and-mantax-prototype-review-including-interview-with-trent-troop/'>Doomkick has posted his review of the Mantax/Ursenal 3d printed prototype we sent him. Check it out for an outsider's perspective on BMOG and for some really nice photographs.


We're currently more than 2/3rds there. If you haven't backed BMOG yet, please do so. We've got 11 days left on the Kickstarter, and this last stretch is crucial to project success.


Thank you to everyone who has backed so far.

Some updates from BMOG...

 

Big news! We've just talked with the factory and they're putting the test shot of Ursenal and Mantax into production. We don't have an exact delivery date but the two figures will be on their way to us for testing soon, and we're working on getting a sticker sheet prototype sent with it.

 

Once we have the test shot, there will be pictures, of course!

 

In the area of decals, we're currently finding out if the factory can do foil. We know they can do transparent pre-cut stickers and do them within production budgets, so stickers are a go, but doing foil is still up in the air. On the upside, this does give us options for some new sticker effects for future waves.

 

Thank you for your support, we look forward to showing you more in the coming weeks!

and

 

While the BMOG figure releases will not come on-card to keep them affordable, we are going to be providing printable digital cards for those who want them.

 

Here are the semi-finals for Mant-axe (name updated to avoid confusion with others Mantaxes and to add some hyphenated 80s-style fun to wave 1) and Ursenal, which demonstrate the Paraxxoid and Augmentoid card styles.

 

The Figure-kits would, in the alternate universe where this was your favorite late 80s toyline, come blister-packaged over the requisite faction symbols. Card-backs, with bios, to come.

Some more experimental builds from BMOG Toys using test shots of the figures.

 

Plus the Kickstarter has announced they are giving a bonus set of stickers to anyone who donated over $5 to the project, that will allow them to create an original character using one of the existing bear/manta sets from retail.

 

We also have some art of the combined form of Ursenal and the upcoming light green bear Bearium!
