    No Botbots at Franklin Big Lots. However, found fresh case of blind packs at Walmart and got several.

    Saw a few of the Botbots 5 packs at Kingston pike Big lots, didnt get any. Looked like someone had stolen the mystery figure out of a couple of them.

    Big Lots on Broadway has the Bot Bots. I was there at like 10 min to close so they should be there in the morning.

    I knew there were blind packs and the blind figure in the packs, but for some reason I did NOT realize all the carded packs were randomized. Putting together a full set of these would be insane if not for ebay or sellers. I wonder if any of the individual figures will go up in price at all?

    The multipacks are not randomized. There's 3 variations each for Sugar Shocks and Toilet Troop, 2 variations for Techie Team, and 4 variations each for Greaser Gang and Jock Squad. But getting together a complete Series 1 would be challenging if you want to minimize duplicates, especially since there's a few BotBots that only exist in one multipack out of a subgroup, and they tend to be packaged such that if you want all those "one of a kinds" you end up with duplicates of several others.

    Hey YO

    Just a heads up...the Botbots SUCK.

    I thought they seemed really fun, and they ARE transformers, so I expected to enjoy collecting them...until I opened a pack. They are made of very doughy/soft plastic, and they are strangely difficult to transform...the parts stick together, some of them wont pull apart without extreme force, just overall total disappointment. A couple are better than others, but from my 2 packs experience I can NOT recommend these in any way.

    I was a little surprised by the way they feel as well...expected them to feel light and brittle. They aren't very precise...and some of them are pretty uninspired...but I think some of the cuter ones are worth it. People just need to temper their expectations with respect to how well these things function...they are bottom-tier TF figures after all.

    So I checked quite a few stores last night.

    Picked up the only Siege Optimus and Megatron at the Walmart closest to West Town mall, they still had a full 8 figure peg of deluxe though (as of about 7 pm) if anyone is looking for those.

    I checked the DCPI number for Shockwave and Magnus with an employee at the Target next to West Town and they said they were getting the truck that had them on Wednesday (Voyagers too), so just a heads up, you may still need to ask on Wednesday just cause they might not have it out.

    Checked Target in Turkey creek for the same and a nice employee pulled a Shockwave and Magnus from the back (got both), no idea if they have more or the voyagers, but they at least had those so it might be worth asking.

    Also if anyone has interest Bakugan are slowly starting to hit the area so keep your eyes peeled.

    Oak Ridge Big lots had some botbot multipacks...I bought two blind packs before christmas, and was not impressed enough to really want more.

    Maybe a clearance item someday...seemed ok for kids though. Daughters got a kick out of them for a day or two.

    Okay so it's been a while since I have posted but the leaders are in stock at a lot of Walmarts but they are under a different UPC then the one you can find a lot of places they are under one UPC together for Walmart and the same DPCI for target but it doesn't show the in stock status on brickseek for target. You have to ask an employee at target. If you are curious about Walmart the UPC is 630509748280 and it is showing in stock at a lot of Walmarts. I got the only two from the Gunbarrel Walmart. The matching DPCI for Target is 087-16-3984 but you'll have to call ahead or ask an employee as brickseek doesn't work for that. It was a pain to find a nice enough Walmart employee to actually look up and look in the back for them however. After literally being told they wouldn't look a few times I almost gave up.

    Also just sharing a personal opinion on BotBots and I love them (almost have the entire first wave except for like 4 or 5). The soft plastic doesn't really deter me from them it makes them pretty tough in my opinion and they have stood up to quite a bit of pressure from tugging on them for some of the ones that are a little more difficult. I catch myself tossing like 4 or 5 of my favorites in my pocket everyday to fiddle with at work. They are not for everybody though, they just work for me I guess.

    Here is that UPC and DPCI again for those who want it:

    DPCI: 087-16-3984

    UPC: 630509748280

    Wow! There's a real shocker!

    Hoping/waiting for an oversized KO from Black Mamba or Wei Jiang. I'm not paying LEADER prices for a figure that's barely larger than a deluxe. Hasbro has lost their minds.

    Hey guys. I am looking for the Cyberverse Optimus Prime that comes with the trailer. I essentially want it just for the trailer and I have heard that they have gone on sale at some stores. If anyone sees one on sale in the Knoxville area would you give me a heads up please.

    I think I saw them at the oak ridge walmart...I plan to go by there in the morning, and can look. It wasn’t tagged as on sale, but neither were the remaining elite 1 voyagers and it price checked at 19 (thinking about picking it up, and returning my old one as it’s cockpit was mispainted)
