Details

"Bog-Nar, the Mutant Muck Menace, is most certainly a villain in the Warlords of Wor comics and related canon, but he can be whoever you want! I like to think he retains some of his former self and may even someday find a more noble cause to fight for."[1]

5th Anniversary Celebration

First sketch of Boggy

"The week-long celebration of Bog-Nar's 5th anniversary kicks off officially today, taking you all the way back to my very first sketch of Boggy! I wanted a character who represented all my favorite muck monsters rolled into a 5.5" heroic fantasy toy. This was my first pass at the character, and not much has changed since."[2]

"In April 2012, inspired by my recent discovery of Glyos and 5.5" resin bootlegs, I set about on my quest to make a "playable art toy," designing a system of magnetic articulation that would make interchangeability a core play feature from Day 1. My first attempt was pretty rough! Better materials and some re-engineering of parts and molds turned v2 into a success, and by the time Bog-Nar was sculpted and molded, I was ready for production."[3]

"Beginning with the original production figure, Boggy has seen several incarnations over the last 5 years. I worked with The Art of Skinner[4] on the first variant, Angry Ass Earth Warrior. I followed those up with a couple of tributes to my favorite Glyos colors with Gamma Meltdown (Neo Phase) and Toxic Inferno (Infection) variants. Steve Seeley Art[5] got his hands (and paints) on a handful of "Geck-Nars." Sludge-Nar, Swamp King, Polar Vortex, Void Warrior, and Bio-Glow Bog-Nars all saw release between 2014-2015, as did Galaxxnar, a mega collaboration that involved Galaxxor, Monster Forge[6], and header art by Aziritt[7]"[8]

"Today is the day... the official Fifth Anniversary of Bog-Nar's release. Today we celebrate the first issue of the Warlords of Wor mini-comic, "The Mutant Muck Menace!" This book was written by Eric Scot Lemons[9] and me (Brandon Michael Barker), with art by Cory Hamscher[10] and Sean Forney Art[11], letters by Crank!, and cover art by Tim Seeley[12] and Sean Forney Art. I had a blast putting these together and hope to soon finish the last three books in Series One. For now, this and four more stories are available in the store, which you can access from the bio page. Happy Birthday, Bog-Nar!"[13]

The Other Bog-Nars

"With Bog-Nar Classic v2 officially sold out (Holy cow! Over 400 Bog-Nar Classics sold... Thank you!), now is a great time to talk about the unsung champions of the WoW line, Bog-Nar alt builds!

Alt designs tend to get a bit overlooked in favor of the primary configuration designs, so I’m always super stoked to get the final production figures in hand so I can see what all the different builds look like. I gotta say, so far, I haven’t met a Bog-Nar I didn’t like!! Here’s a sampling of some faves from the current stock: Nek-Nar! (Nekroid Nightstalker v2); Orc-Nar! (Nekroid Orcblight); Wild-Nar! (Gol Wildmage); Hunt-Nar! (Gol Hunter); and Skin-Nar! (Nekroid Skinwalker)... maybe my favorite alt-Boggy of all!"[14]

6th Anniversary Celebration

"Six years ago today I drove out to New York for NYCC with this early prototype for a Glyos-compatible Bog-Nar. I was going to meet Matt Doughty and get his feedback on the general direction I was headed. At the time @hamfx was assisting with digital sculpts, and we made it through a couple of revision rounds before the project got back-seated. I was going for something that would be compatible with OSM or Weaponeers of Monkaa, around the 4” mark, but even then Doughty’s advice was “make it smaller.” It’s advice that WoM creators Spy Monkey Creations heeded as they began to develop their own 3” barbarian line, @battletribes. I would learn about that project in November of 2015, which immediately resurrected the Bog-Nar Glyos mission. Finally, after 20 months of development, Bog-Nar and the Warlords of Wor would make their Glyos debut in August of 2017, nearly 4 years after that first trip to NYCC."[15]

Story

Doctor Telek Hollis was once a brilliant botanist and the world's foremost expert in the field of gamma spectroscopy...

Until one day, in an attempt to engineer a gamma-radiated food crop that was resistant to time storm displacement, a freak lab accident turned Dr. Hollis into a terrifying synthesis of plant and man! Shunned by his wife, the doctor fled the city of Wor in search of oblivion at the heart of a time storm... only to find his experiment had been a success. Dr. Hollis' mutated biology was impervious to the time storm's effects.

Driven mad by his unfortunate fate, Dr. Hollis set forth on a path of terror against the city of Wor... a path that inevitably led him into the service of Dekay and a new life of evil as BOG-NAR, The Mutant Muck Menace!

The Ancient Throne of the Crystal King

As another long winter descends upon the city of Wor, one of her more nefarious inhabitants sets out on a secret quest. Leaving the safety of the city walls, the evil Bog-Nar climbs high into the Shivering Hills, headlong to the coming cold. At the peak of the Frozen Fang, he discovers the ancient throne of the Crystal King, and the relic of power embedded there.[16]

As Bog-Nar approaches the crumbling throne, a large crystal protruding from the stone comes to life. It begins to pulse, dimly at first, then brighter as a high pitched hum hits his ears, the air around him suddenly electric. He hears, or rather, he feels the gem pull him closer, as though it senses his intent and beckons him to call forth its dormant storm.[17]

The world quiets around him, and an explosion of light blinds his vision. He feels the air swirl, heavy with the scent of trioxygen, attempting to lift his feet from the frigid stones beneath. The searing sensation of sub-zero gales against his vegetated flesh brings no pain, though he is acutely aware of the cellular crystallization of his organic self, originating from the very center of his being and crawling outward to his furthermost appendages in rolling, fractal waves. When the Scepter of Synderakk has at last completed the transformation, the mind of the mad Doctor Hollis remains, but the body is now... FRÖST-NAR![18]

The transformation complete, Fröst-Nar surveys his surroundings with fresh senses. The tempestuous winds wane and a few final flakes fall across scattered stones as the snow subsides. As the Scepter of Synderakk is now an extension of himself, and he of it, he recognizes finally that something is amiss. The Scepter is not whole... his full potential unrealized! “What trickery is this?!” the mutant spits. “A fragment of the Scepter’s jewel... has been stolen!” “I presume it is thisss that you ssseek,” hisses a chilly voice from below him. “Ah, the Glacier Dweller returns at last to his pitiful nest,” Fröst-Nar replies. “And I see you’ve brought Clawbber and his comical cronies.”[19]

“No matter!” declares Fröst-Nar, raising the Scepter of Synderakk. “I shall gather an army to bring Wor crashing into oblivion once and for all, beginning with your own misguided minions!” With this devilish declaration Clawbber’s Worian Guards are possessed by the Scepter’s magicks, transformed in mindless ghouls, slaves to the call of their new master, Fröst-Nar![20]

“Bog-Nar has grown more powerful than I had imagined possible... his connection to the Scepter of Synderakk is ssstrong, indeed,” says the Glacier Dweller to Clawbber and Taskmaster Volk. “But I am ssstill the Guardian of the Frozen Fang, and no one knows the Scepter as well as I. Sssteel yourselves, soldiers of Wor, and accept the gifts of Sssynderakk!” With these words the Glacier Dweller activates the jewel fragment’s magical might, imbuing the two men with their own portion of the Scepter’s power, granting them a fighting chance against Fröst-Nar and his frozen forces.[21]

“Pathetic fools!” Fröst-Nar laughs. “You think yourselves a match for me still? I am indomitable! I am unshakable! I AM LEGION!” Fingers of the Scepter’s wrath rip wild, burning arcs across the snowy, stone surface of the Frozen Fang. From the earth upon which they fall arise hordes of frost golem doppelgängers; relentless automata to bolster the mad mutant’s militia![22]

Has Bog-Nar finally found the means to destroy the city of Wor once and for all? Is the Glacier Dweller’s Polar Vortex power enough to help Clawbber and the Arctic Guard defeat the frozen armies of frost golems and shivering ghouls? You decide...[23]
