Iron Legions Mech Toy Kickstarter

February 2014 - Andrew Yang has a new project on Kickstarter - the Iron Legions Mechs!

The constructible mechs are interchangeable so that you can customize your figures as you'd like. The figures in these pictures are prototypes from a 3D printer (the final product will be injected molded in a factory), and one of the rewards is the file to be able to print out a different character on your own 3D printer.

Learn more about it on the Iron Legions Mech Toys Kickstarter page.

BMOG Toyline Kickstarter

BMOG: BIO-MECHANICAL ORDNANCE GESTALTS

December 2013 - Remember the robot toys of the 1980s? World-spanning battles of good and evil across the living room floor? Shape-changing and modular warriors of all shapes and sizes? So do we, and those memories inspired BMOG, a building toy system that lets you make wild, robotic characters where each and every component is also an action-figure accessory.

Each BMOG (Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalt) kit comes on-sprue to build and customize how you see fit, forming a robot warrior. Every component uses the "Fusion Factor" 5mm peg-and-post system, enabling you to mix-and match pieces to create your own monstrous mechanical marvels.

On top of that, every piece is also a stand-alone accessory that - thanks to the 5mm peg system - is compatible with literally thousands of other toys across dozens of lines, past, present, and future. Augment your space-robot tyrant with an arsenal of blasters that combine to serve as a savage pet, or outfit your techno-barbarian hordes with vicious blade-weapons that combine into robotic birds of prey.
