Robotic scorpion

Scorpatron is a fictional character and robot toy made by BMOG Toys. He is a robotic scorpion who turns into an arsenal of weapons.

BMOG Toys

Scorpatron is a character from the BMOG (Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalts) toy line. He is not an homage to any existing character, but meant to be used as either a stand-alone figure, or as accessories to any toy capable of using 5mm port accessories, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, Zoids Blox, and many others.

Development

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 a character owned by another company.

BMOG announced their first product, Ursenal, in October 2013.[1]

Fundraising for the BMOG Toys bear and manta mold was done through Kickstarter. The goal of raising $19,000 was surpassed by the end of the fundraising period on December 13th, 2013.

He was released at BotCon 2014.

Scorpatron was designed by combining part of Bearium and Ursenal.
