Bot Shots Wave 3 Single Packs In Hand

Posted on 02-01-2014 at 03:27 PM by Sol Fury under Bot Shots
b723 Griffin-of-Oz stopped by our 2005 Boards to share with us an in-hand look at the Bot Shots 2013 Wave 3 single packs, which surfaced in Australia in December last year but to the best of anyone's knowledge have never made it to US retail.

The assortment consisted of five releases - a new mold Megatron, Twinstrike, Inferno who is a redeco of Series 1 Sentinel Prime, Hound who is a redeco of Series 1 Ironhide, and a new mold Skywarp who is the chase "Super Bot" for the assortment.

Interestingly, if you go by the "collector series" numbers on the releases, it has been noticed that two numbers are missing. Decepticon Brawl in 2013 Wave 2 was B006, Megatron and Twinstrike here are B008 and B009 respectively. B010 is skipped, then Inferno and Hound are numbers B011 and B012, respectively.

What became of the other two numbers? A cross sell shows Skystalker and gives his number as B010, so it looks like he was planned for the assortment, but cancelled. That leaves B007, which based on the leaked Hasbro toy list, would have been Rom the Space Knight - it looks like he too has been cancelled.

Transformers Dark of the Moon Bot Shots Concept Designs

Posted on 11-23-2013 at 12:38 PM by Sol Fury under Bot Shots
1476682_692696687422315_1146603770_n Ken Christiansen has shared some concept work he did for what would become the Bot Shots line on his Facebook. He explains that the vehicle designs were "just some fast vehicles" to fill out a Hasbro presentation. He did not work on robot modes for these.

What might be of interest is that Ken also did concept work for two more Bot Shot vehicles, Dino and Dark of the Moon Soundwave, neither of whom made the final cut.

That's right, Groove has been working out, he's got buff and now he's a tank. Check out the images of the set mirrored with this post.

New Bot Shots Single Packs and Launcers Official Images

Posted on 09-30-2013 at 05:47 PM by Sol Fury under Bot Shots
F4418F5B50569047F5F85D8CD798C84D Hasbro have updated their online product catalog with new official images of several upcoming Bot Shots releases including:

Launchers Bluestreak, Buzzclaw, Hun-Gurrr and Starscream
Single Packs Smokescreen, Hydrax, Soundwave, Prowl and Strafe

New images of the Combaticons Five Pack have also been posted.

Of interest is that the Smokescreen in the new assortment seems to draw on the Alternators / Binaltech "blue" version, with the Launcher Bluestreak looking a lot like Smokescreen, one questions if perhaps the names got switched. Then again, perhaps this Bot Shot Smokescreen is meant to evoke Transformers Prime Smokescreen in his Beast Hunters deco.

New Bot Shot Launchers Revealed in Taiwan Catalog

Posted on 09-26-2013 at 02:02 PM by Sol Fury under Bot Shots
27393143d1380204348-new-taiwan-tf-catalog-3 A pair of new Bot Shot launchers have been revealed in a catalog displayed in Taiwanese store Toyworld! The two new launchers feature Buzzclaw, an orange and green Predacon Bot Shot, and Bluestreak, who looks very much like Generation 1 Smokescreen. The page also features a fresh look at the Starscream and Hun-Gurrr Bot Shot Launchers.

The catalog also features coverage of Construct Bots, the Rescue Bots Flip Changers and Optimus Prime Rescue Trailer, and the Beast Hunters Cyberverse Vehicles, but nothing on those pages that was previously unseen.

Bot Shots Combaticons Five Pack Official Images

Posted on 08-26-2013 at 04:51 PM by Sol Fury under Bot Shots
Bot-Shot-Combaticons-1 Wal-Mart have updated their site listings for the Bot Shots Combaticons Five Pack with a pair of images of the set. The images show the five Combaticons in and out of box - although only one mode for each are shown so it is hard to work out who is going to be a reuse of which mold - that being said this set seems to debut a new mold for Vortex, as he appears to be our first helicopter Bot Shot! Check out the images to see him and Decepticon Brawl, Blast-Off, Onslaught and Swindle in Bot Shot form!

The third assortment of 2013 three packs adds a set with Ultra Magnus, Red Alert and Super-Bot Mirage into the mix. The second new set in the assortment is Predacon heavy, with a red Twinstrike, Skystalker, and Super-Bot Bumblebee. Ultra Magnus is notable for being a recolor of the Transformers Cybertron Optimus Prime, but also being in a deco that manages to make him look like a slightly off-colored Optimus Prime.

This time out we have a look at the very cool Warpath Launcher set along with the next wave of three packs. The Warpath Launcher marks the first time we've seen Warpath as a Bot Shot, and he is an awesome little bot - his face is packed with character and attitude, complete with one eye larger than the other as if he is raising an eyebrow to say "did you just make me WHAM BAM! crash into that wall to make me transform?!"

The new assortment of three packs includes a few other cool new additions to the series - the first includes a redeco of the new Spin Shot Ironhide as Sergeant Kup along with Transformers Cybertron inspired Predacon Scourge and a Super Bot Blitzwing (redeco of the first Decepticon Brawl Bot Shot). The second set features a Transformers Cybertron homage Optimus Prime, a Super Bot Jazz, and all-new Predacon Cindersaur!

Read on to check out all these in-hand images.
