Trent Troop from the BMOG team will be at TF Expo in Wichita, KS (see www.tf-expo.com for convention details). We will have a sales booth for the Military Black, Toxic Spill and Piratical Purple colorways and the convention will have their exclusive Carbearator and Chopp-Orr versions available as well.
There will be a BMOG panel on Saturday. We hope to see you there!
We’re back from BMOG’s premiere at BotCon 2014, and it was quite the debut! It was the first time people could get their hands directly on the final toys, and the response was amazing. We’re looking forward to seeing what creations people can make with their kits! For those of you with sets on the way from your Kickstarter pledges or preorders from Big Bad Toy Store or TF Source, we’re beginning the process of shipping those out, so soon you all should be able to deck out your figures!

Fresh off their successful appearance at BotCon 2014, two of the three members of Team BMOG were profiled in L.A. Weekly as part of a spotlight on Transformers fans who make and customize their own toys. You can take a look at the article via this link: http://www.laweekly.com/publicspectacle/2014/06/23/at-botcon-transformers-fans-create-their-own-toys
Also featured in the article alongside BMOG Toys is Rob “Cheetimus” Roberts, a long time fan who makes a living customizing Transformers and other toys. You’ve probably seen his work and know him from The Allspark.
Thanks to L.A. Weekly for taking the time to talk with BMOG Toys!
The majority of the kits have arrived here at BMOG headquarters, which I now wish wasn’t on the second floor.
More news below the break!
At our Botcon 2014 booth we will have a limited-edition colorway of the Bear & Manta Ray pack available for purchase, We’ll have more info on these two colorful characters in the upcoming days.
While you can, of course, build him using the standard configuration, the bear has a peg-leg configuration which is the ‘official’ build for this color.
The first colorways for BMOG are under production right now, and you can see a kit in the Orange Kickstarter colorway below. We’re hoping to have the finished run in-hand in the next few weeks!
To keep costs down, BMOG figures will come in a plastic bag with a sticker sheet. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t provide you with the full toy experience in an easily printable format!

Enjoy this first glimpse of the BMOG story and keep an eye out for more in the future!
We’re proud to announce that every Kickstarter backer who is getting a mailed package from BMOG headquarters ($5 backers and up) will be getting a free “Treblemaker” alternate sticker sheet as a thank you for helping make BMOG a reality. We’re looking into other ways of thanking our backers as well.
Thank you, everyone, for your continued support of BMOG!
Here are just a few of the alternate builds we’ve come up with using the parts from two BMOG sets (test shots, in this instance.) The more kits you get, the wilder creations you can make!
We just put in our order with the factory and they will be going into production in early May. We currently expect the product on-hand come June, at which Kickstarter backers will see their rewards start shipping out.
Due to the massive positive response to BMOG, we’re launching with two retail colorways! The first is Ursenal VS Mant-Axe in black, as previously promised. We are proud to announce the second will be the evil Paraxxoid team Bearium and Gamma-Ray in toxic spill green!
Retailer Big Bad Toystore has them up for pre-order right now, in both black and toxic spill green!
Pre-order a Toxic Spill set and, if you didn’t back us on Kickstarter or didn’t get a set in black when you did, grab a black set at the same time. The combination of the two promises to be very striking!
