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.
Article 2 of the Iacon Constitution states "A well regulated automilitia being necessary for the defense of a free city-state, the right to keep a bear made out of arms shall not be infringed."
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!
Just an update from the BMOG Toys people. They have some new test shots in hand and are testing 5mm peg and hold sizes. Looking good!
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!
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.
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!
Best of luck to you guys on this project. I love the stuff you're doing and I'll be throwing in to the Kickstarter as soon as I can.
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.
