Part 4 of 9: Defining 528 Space Military KOG Borders, Designs, and Rarities

Foil Ultra-Rare ‘Astronaut’ KOG with Peach Dream Border

A few days before the sale of 1st Edition KOGs on WAX NFTs, this collectors’ guide went live. But the world had no way of knowing actual figures until after the 3-hour sales window closed forever.

In other words, this series goes deeper into specific KOGs details. And by the time it’s over, we’ll have examined 112 different non-fungible tokens. But instead of making an enormous post that makes you scroll down a squillion times, this series divides the entire collection into nine distinct sets.

KOGs Starter Packs contain 25 KOGs, and Booster Packs include 6 — both are (maybe) still selling on AtomicHub. With a total of 6,622 and 6,183 respective packs sold or reserved for giveaways, only 202, 648 1st Edition KOGs NFTs will ever exist.

Now that packs are tearing open — 61% so far — and NFTs are minting to the WAX Blockchain, the secondary market is taking shape.

Amassing 1 of all 3,414 1st Edition KOGs is a challenge for even the most active collectors! How will you even know what piques your interest without a first-hand look?

You're in luck because that’s what this 9-part series is all about.

Part 1: 1st Edition Slammers

Part 2: Staff Collection

Part 3: 8-Bit Collection


Spaced-Out Future Soldiers

The KOGs Space Military collection includes some of the series’ first designs. Long before the Cyberpunk set was even a blip on the radar, for example, collectors got sneak peeks of the game’s cosmic army.

Like the 8-Bit set before it, the Space Military squadron consists of 15 enlistees:

Each character has a unique role to play, and the first three look the best while performing their duty …


3x Ultra-Rares

Unsurprisingly, the Ultra-Rare NFTs tend to fetch the most coin within secondary markets.

That said, although more than 60% of Booster and Starter Packs are now open, some of the mint numbers emerging in the foil variants are still under double digits.

In other words, there’s still some low-mint goodness in all that unopened packaging! Case in point — just today (Sept. 5), I opened a Booster Pack and pulled a Foil Rare ‘KOG Station’ NFT, mint #5 of 5.

Now, the Space Military series begins with the ultra-rarest of borders:

Ultra-Rare Border Types

  • Cerulean Sky — black, blue, snow
  • Console Gray — white, black, gray
  • Digital Dawn — black, maroon, gold
  • Jeweled Earth — tan, maroon, black
  • Neon — purple, pink, blue
  • Peach Dreams — gray, black, pink
  • Pineapple — black, yellow, green
  • Royal Orange — black, purple, orange
  • Scorched Earth — black, olive, pumpkin
  • Sirens — black, red, blue
  • Striped Amber — brown, orange, black
  • Sunset — red, pink, purple, blue

Although the pieces in this NFT collection are undoubtedly futuristic, the first recruit has the power to travel through time …

KOG #26: Time Traveler

Google the date if you must — Apr. 30, 1945 — and you’ll see its historical importance. On that day, one of the galaxy’s worst humans sent himself to an early grave.

What’s this time-jumper doing in that era? Perhaps more could be done by arriving a few years earlier?

Wrapping Up

The KOGs Space Military collection offers an imaginative spacescape in which a group of future soldiers fights for survival. Working in unison, they take it upon themselves to maintain peace throughout the galaxy.

Which galaxy is that, you ask? You tell me!

The upcoming KOGs games will see players pit their NFTs against one another in tournaments and online battles. And now that RFOX Games released a KOGs roadmap, we have a deeper understanding of how the ecosystem will unfold over the next six to seven months.

Now that you’re familiar with 1st Edition Slammers, the Staff collection, the 8-Bit series, and the Space Military, we’ll continue with KOG #41 from the ‘90s’ set. See you back here soon!
