Treblemaker is a fictional character from BMOG Toys introduced in 2014. He is a evil Paraxxoid Action Hunter bear who turns into an arsenal of weapons.

BMOG Toys

Treblemaker was a bonus sticker set for the BMOG Toys Kickstarter campaign. This set could be used with any of the existing BMOG bear and manta sets to create Treblemaker and his manta partner Pick-Slaughter.

According to the toy's creator, "Trent Troop":

Everyone who backed the Kickstarter at $5 or more (essentially, every one where we're sending out rewards in the mail) is going to get a bonus "Treblemaker" sticker set in thanks for the generous support our backers have provided.

"Treblemaker" is the name of the sticker sheet. I picked the colors to go well with all three figure sets. Who you choose and what you name your custom BMOGs is up to you!

The Treblemaker colors were designed to complement the Kickstarter orange and the retail colors equally well. You can theoretically make 1 of 3 possible bears and manta rays depending on how you do it, presuming you use just one plastic color. It's really up to you.

I would tend to lean toward the factions being the opposite of the defaults for the same color (Evil Orange team, Heroic Toxic Green Team, evil black bear, heroic black manta ray) for variety. But that's the individual call.

Given the cassette theme of the Treblemaker bear, I will probably display mine with Blaster or Soundwave.

Development

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.

A survey of the Kickstarter members as to what color the Kickstarter exclusive bear and manta should be resulted in "action hunter" orange. This set was named Solarbear and Pick-Slaughter. BMOG Toys designer Trent Troop has commented that the orange used for Solarbear and Pick-Slaughter is similar to the "safety" orange found on Generation 1 Tyrannotron.[1]

The Action Hunter Bear and Manta Ray set were released in August 2014.

Reception

Fictional biography

The evil Treblemaker was brought to life when weapons made by a group of evil interdimensional arms dealers were exposed to the power of the last world seed. He is a member of the Paraxxoids and partner to Pick-Slaughter. He breaks down into a megaphone which serves as his seat of intelligence, two shock rifles, two concussion rockets launchers, thunderclap hammer, tuning fork, and sonar imager.
