The BMOG Toys bear mold was designed by [[Trent Troop]]. He said he came up with the idea of BMOG toy when playing with a ''Generation 1'' [[Top-Heavy]] toy. He also says it was inspired by [[Glyos]]. He designed Ursenal in Studio 3D. The hexagons in its design are inspired by honeycombs. Early names for Ursenal included Bruination and Bear Made of Guns. The name Bruination was abandoned due to it's similarity to [[Ruination|a character]] owned by another company.
