BMOG Toys

Featherblight is a character from the BMOG (Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalts) toy line. She 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.

The BMOG Toys eagle mold was designed by Trent Troop. Featherblight was first mentioned in the Good Morning, Cybertron! podcast and her first picture was posted in a BMOG Kickstarter update. Featherblight and the Non-Dino Squad were to be part of an unreached stretch goal if the Kickstarter raised at least $31,000.[1]
