Wilson Automatoys is a pre-War company established in 2042. Its only known product is the Giddyup Buttercup.[1]


Wilson Automatoys is mentioned in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road, Fallout 4, and Fallout Shelter.

Their corporate headquarters and one of their factories make an appearance in Boston in Fallout 4. In the game, the company's name is either spelled Wilson Automatoys, via posters first seen in "Fallout 3", or Wilson Atomatoys, via posters and the company's logo seen in the newer game. It is possible that the Giddyup Buttercup is nuclear powered, as suggested by the latter name. It is also suggested that the company was making weapons for the U.S. military before the Great War. The project was named SCYTHE, and it consisted of the production of land mines for the army. The player character in Fallout 4 can learn about the project from various terminals inside the Wilson Automatoys building. All information about the project was to remain secret and the production of toys was limited. Marc Wilson is one of the few people inside the company that knew about the project.

Behind the scenesEdit

While this company naturally went under after the Great War, their legacy was continued by the Mothership Zeta aliens. This is seen aboard their mothership, as the aliens have built entire production lines with the specific intent of creating Wilson Automatoy's Giddyup Buttercup toy.
