    I checked all the links provided from the mysterious links post. Those are the only two that work. The others seem to be future figures based on the names.

    It's strange they don't even show up in site searches for me at all - if I didn't have the link they'd be invisible.
    I find it really puzzling that they are kinda 'out' yet they are not even listed very many places or that we only have incomplete information on them with regard to wave data say.

    Like they say they are doing potentially Hundreds of these so when is the 2nd wave supposed to be out ?
    if the 1st wave is maybe officially now then it might be Jan-feb or if it's not even supposed to have launched we might be talking March-April or even later for wave 2.

    Does anyone even have a listing with a release date on for the 8 packs ?

    I saw someone mention under 200 for 2019.

    If we're lucky that means 3 waves with 0 repeats.

    If we're unlucky, well, I don't particularly want to think about it.

    Damn. I bought them on Monday and they didn't even ship until today. Prime really fails me when it comes to two day shipping. Two day shipping shouldn't mean you sit on them for two days THEN ship them.

    I'm 45 and just as pumped. It's silly stupid.

    But I made up for it by pointing out in a meeting that one of our vendors based their letterhead on Optimus Prime's trailer stripes, then specifically pointed out how their logo sits right where the Autobot symbol should be. I nerded out so hard I almost embarrassed myself. Almost.

    We're definitely getting repaints.

    The second wave includes 5 Packs of the Backpack Bunch and the Shed Heads. There are obvious repaints in the smaller cropped group shot. There's a red redeco of Professor Wellread near him, so it's not a secondary paint deco for him. There's a white stapler close to the bottom center that appears to be a redeco of Stinkeye Stapleton. Those could be for a Backpack Bunch 5pk.

    The picture is heavily cropped, but I don't make out any redecos in the image shown.

    There are other Tribes known from the Amazon leaks, plus there are a couple dozen BotBots that are shown who are not in series 1.

    FUTURE TRIBES
    Music Mob 5pk
    Season Greeters 5pk
    Spoiled Rottens 8pk
    Goo Goo Groupies 8pk
    Greaser Gang 2.0 8pk

    Repaints I don't mind at all.
    What I don't want is to have to buy a 5 pack that has 4 figures from wave 1, and one from wave 2.

    A pack that has 4 repaints and one brand new mold, I'm not thrilled about, but it doesn't make me sad at their strategy.

    Half considering taking tomorrow off work so I'm sitting at home when my Bot Bots show up and can run around the neighborhood taking pictures of them causing mischief. Seriously, I haven't been this geeked about new toys in decades. The little buggers have so much charm though, it's almost impossible not to be hyped.

    Saw an unboxing video of a full blind box case on Youtube -- anyone know if there's a code guide for identifying them yet? There are embossed codes on the back of the boxes, so the last two numbers should indicate which bot is inside.

    THE HYPE!















    IS REAL!
    YES!

    I don't suppose anybody has a clue when preorders/orders will go up for cases of these little beauties? I'm so psyched at this point it's ridiculous.

    Was this from Amazon? Did you order two of each and get different assortments?

    Tell me about it. I'm holding off on the Amazon order to get the full case of each assortment. I want the doubles as stocking stuffers.

    Yes, from Amazon, same link I posted earlier.
    I originally placed one order for each set.
    Then I decided I had poor impulse control and placed a second order of each.

    I'm pretty certain it was just luck of the draw that the sets I got were unique though. I can't imagine their pickers care enough to actually look at the packaging.

    Meh. He opened a whole case and got a duplicate of Skillz Pink and no rock dog thing.

    Hopefully that's just a one-time packaging error and not indicative of how cases will be.

    My sister in law and her daughter buy the MLP blind bags by the Case and they don't get doubles in them. Hopefully just a sloppy factory error. I wouldn't care as much if it was one that I knew was duplicated in the 5/8 Packs. The rock dog will take some hunting on his part to find.
