Skroggle infestations have been reported on over a dozen planets. The highly adaptable Skroggle physiology allows them to thrive in almost any atmosphere. Skroggles are omnivorous and their bizarre metabolism enables them to vomit plant-like creatures that excrete volatile acidic spores.
Gnaw was taken from his home-planet as a Skroggle specimen by Kremzonian scientists. But Gnaw was not a beast that could be caged: his acid-breath melted his holding pen and Gnaw started to rampage through the science facility where he was held. No-one knows exactly what happened, but the facility was found 12 days later, abandoned, and overgrown with some weird, toxic flora.
Gnaw was eventually noticed by a passing band of Amphibian cosmic bikerpirates. Gnaw was in need of some friends, and he was taken in by them, nurtured and trained to fight in black-market exotic-alien arena fights. Occasionally his masters sell Gnaw's "services" to any war general that is desperate enough to set loose the rapid, chitinous menace upon the battlefield.

(This text is a binary message; when translated via an ASCII decoder, it reads: "It is the future, the distant future! The year 4000! Unless it's a more coloquial situation with a few robofriends, Gnaw no longer says poop. Instead, he says defecate.")
This skin is a silver-colored robotic version of Gnaw. He also has team-colored details. He has an RC-antenna on his head and on the tip of his tail. His collar has a "power" symbol. He only has a single eye on this skin.
His Weedlings are also turned robotic, with one eye and an antenna. Spit is changed to a heap of metal, with new sounds.
Being premium, the skin also comes with unique voice lines. It also costs $5.00 instead of the usual $2.50 for skins.
