    Hasbro has been selling blind bag items for a while now, including MLP for almost a decade. They've just never had anything with this much potential before.

    I'm genuinely surprised that they didn't use the blind bag approach for the MicroMasters. That might even give them enough of a sales boost to finish each Patrol. ;)

    Ugh. Don't give them any ideas. The Transformers Blind bag toys can be a pain to find at retailers. Either you can't even find the assortment, or someone already rifled through them all and took the ones you wanted.

    I'm STILL finding random Prid blind bags at various stores and buying what they happen to have left that appeals to me. Just a month ago a local Walgreens had 2 prid blind bags appear on the shelf, which they didn't have mere days before. These things just appear randomly! After googling the assortment (Series 6), feeling them, and using the little baggie sneak-a-peek window I bought them both. Got RID Skybyte/Cybershark and G1 Grimlock.

    If they make a BotBots cartoon, then I hope it\'s really good.

    I don't think I've ever seen Tiny Titans in the wild : the Rescue Bot PVC Blind bags I see a lot though.
    wish we'd got the Tiny Titan Changer wave 2 more readily in the UK - I really wanted the miniature Squeeks.
    I'd have happily bought a case even.

    Here is hoping they don't skip over these Bot Bots in the UK too.
    But I'm not going to miss out on them anyway - not when I've been complaining about not having the Kitchen Crew for most of a decade.

    I am a little concerned about what they might do in the future with hard to get chases and premiums though.

    Yup, which fits with what I said.
