Isle of Rangoon’s Trent Troop and Greg Sepelak have been joined by Alex Androski to develop a new indie-toy that is compatible with Transformers and dozens of other toylines! This line is called BMOG (Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalts), which we are currently funding through a Kickstarter campaign.
BMOG figures are robot toys that disassemble into 5mm compatible weapons and accessories, and can be rebuilt and combined, block-style, into countless new forms. The characters, designs, concepts and background are all new, but thanks to the 5mm system, the toys work with a great many lines past and present.
We’re ready to produce the first two toys, URSENAL of the heroic AUGMENTOIDS (a robot bear that separates into four guns, a warhammer, battle-blade, scanner and bear-head crusher-claw) and MANTAX from the evil PARAXXOIDS (a manta ray that splits into a huge double-bladed axe-pick and a double-barreled hand-blaster).
The manufacturer is ready, and several online outlets have expressed interest in stocking the line. All we need is the funding, and this is where you come in. By backing the project, you can not only ensure your copies of the first two figures in the main-line black color, but also get them in a color set EXCLUSIVE to Kickstarter backers, determined by your votes. The Kickstarter runs until December 13, 2013. Stretch goals will be periodically announced, which can include the creation of two more BMOG sets already approaching the end of their design phase.
And no, this doesn’t mean Isle of Rangoon is going anywhere! We’re still working on making more videos, and having a successful toy line will only helps us with that! Keep checking in for more!
