  1. 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.
  2. Behold Featherblight & the Non-Dino Squad, our stretch goal team. For more pictures, go here. Check out the full details on the kickstarter.
  3. NEW REWARD TIER FOR BMOG! 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!
  4. We've been using Kicktraq pretty extensively. As you may/may not know, the $300 and above reward tiers for supporting BMOG through Kickstarterinclude a custom-made BMOG accessory made based on your sketch or description, which will be 3d printed and sent to you with your order. Jim Sorenson, one of our high-tier backers, agreed to let us outline the development of his part early so everyone can see what is involved. He gave us the following description: "An alternate Ursenal head sounds cool. Perhaps a dragon head, something with a serpentine neck and mighty jaws and horns.” From that, Greg and I developed a number of quick sketches, seen above. We sent those to Jim, who selected design #2 as the one he wanted to go with. Next stop? 3d development!
  5. We're now almost 40% to our goal and we're going to be unveiling the first stretch goal very soon. In the meantime, Andrew Sorohan did an awesome BMOG Minicomic that really captures the feel of 80s pack-ins: Every backing is appreciated, as continuous growth encourages other backers. You can always up your backing status later on, so check out the Kickstarter if you haven't already!
  6. THE KICKSTARTER IS LIVE. If you, or anyone you know, might be interested, point them towards us. We've covered about 10% of our goal in the first six hours. If we can hit our funding target early on, we can start putting up stretch goals. Birds of prey that become arsenals of weapons sound fun? How about a team of prehistoric reptiles? We're working on those designs as we speak.
  7. We get a look at the Paraxxoid faction symbol along with the character art for Mantax.
  8. Heroic Augmentoid Ursenal official art by Greg Sepelak Featuring the first look at the Augmentiod Faction Symbol.
  9. Behold, first-renders of the evil Paraxxoid tentatively known as Mantaxe, an axe-blaster combo. Mantaxe is the first mini-BMOG, a size-class that will include BMOGs that use 2-3 parts or teams of one-piece BMOGs. In this case, he separates into a battle-axe and a double barreled laser pistol. Mantaxe will serve as Ursenal's rival and assortment-mate.
  10. Thanks, I was actually kind of surprised I had a profile at all, I must have forgotten about it for all those years. In the mean time, here's some pics of Ursenal in use:

  12. For about the past year, I've been developing a concept: BMOG: Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalts, robotic animals, robots and other 'partner' figures that divide into arsenals of weapons and gear for Transformers and other 5mm compatible toys. Each part has multiple 5mm pegs and holes for customization and combination. BMOG is meant to be TF compatible while being its own entity. The characters, factions and designs are completely new. As such, we can crowd-source the project through Kickstarter, which we will be doing soon. In the meantime, we'll be showing off preview photos and renders of the line as it develops. Here is Ursenal, first of the Heroic Augmentoids as a 3d printed prototype, hand painted so the detail will be more clear. bmogtoys.com will be up shortly, and we have a twitter and tumblr for news posts.
