Was it the Acid Storm one?
Nope
Eeesh, $14.99. It's nice that they're out and I might get the Acid Storm set for that price, but I'm not sure if it's worth it. I'll have to wait until Target has them for $5 less.
Spoiler
Considering the figures each go for $4.99, $14.99 isn't exactly a crazy price.

Yeah, that's right. We need to be considerate to our friends stuck in 1995.

Cool, these are coming out already? I've already decided to go completist on this line, but I think I'll wait until they arrive at a cheaper store (especially now that we're just around the corner from these things being released at Target and other places).


If the 3-pack with Prowl is out, though, it's going to be REALLY tough to say no.

Point was, there are two three packs... just wondered which one he saw. The one with Prowl? Or the one with Acid Storm?


I just gave up on waiting, and pre-ordered the 3 packs from BBTS.

I was about to suggest this. You can preorder both packs for 29.99.

Yeah, but it says "Super Value". lol I remember when multi-packs were actually less than the individual prices.

Anyways....what other 3 packs are in this assortment?

I was originally stoked for the Acid Storm one until I saw a photo of it. I'm really bummed out that he's molded in neon, translucent plastic.

You've also got the Autobots one with Prowl, Sentinel Prime and Bumblebee. Solid coloured version of Sentinel too, not clear like the single pack one.

It's because he's considered one of the "chase" figures. All the chase molds are translucent. Hope we get a solid colored one as well eventually.

I was thinking the same thing, buy my OCD probably wouldnt allow me to only get one or two, and the paint apps (on the feet) on Optimus Prime in bot mode in the package kind of turned me off. I may still grab Optimus at some point, but I really don't need to start another line, as "cute" as they actually are.
Rubicon
When I bought mine it was only 12.99 and I used the $3 coupon so being 9.99 seemed worth it. Plus the stats are different on these ones.
YoungPrime
Damn it!

Instead of this crap why not release that 1st new wave of Generation's?

Lord knows there's nothing else on TF shelves worth racing out for...

exactly, this is another TRU price hike when the 3rd figure should just be a bonus.

considering these toys are 3.99 at target, I bet these packs will be showing up there for 9.99 or less. I'll buy them then.
starscream 2005
i actually bought one of these bots the other day. optimus prime of coarse. i have to say even if they are a little high priced they are fun to throw at the wall.
cougarcat13t
Awesome! I love the botshots! I'm a sucker for mini transformers! I picked up barricade the other day and love it! Acid storm would be a sweet addition!!

I WANT THESE NOW!

You could buy the cheapest pre-paid phone available and it would still have a camera in it.

I'm guessing it's the Sentinel Prime chase figure.

Blol.

I hope Toys R Us will have deal where you buy Transformers worth x combined and get a pack of botshots free. I don't see myself buying these toys otherwise.

I picked up a 3 pack today at TRU. It was on sale for $12.99. The singles were still $4.99. I only saw the Autobot 3 pack, which included Prowl, Bumblebee and Sentinel Prime.

Same. Just picked up both sets in Tigard Oregon from TRU.

The packaging numbers each character starting with BP001 for Bumblebee and Acid Storm is "Super Bot 006". I wish they had used the same numbering scheme as the single packs.
Shark Jumper
I would like bot stats of each for comparison if I want.
So far it seems like each bot will have at least one stat that overpowers the other in a tie breaker.
Sharktibolt
Definitely want the Acid Storm 3-pack for the Acid Storm. The Prowl one is a maybe.
Spoiler
Wow, so, they shortpacked even the botshots here?! I just picked up my set of Decepticons, and it appears to be a 3:1 packing rate, Bots being the 3.
bny888
Is the Bumblebee from the 3-pack any different from the singe pack?
N Somniac
I picked up a battle pack and all the single packs (except for the super bot 001 - sentinal prime) and to answer your question BNY888 - the bumblebee's are different. Slight color change, tires different color and the hit points on the chest are different. Also the windshield is different. Kinda reminds me of Prime/RID bumblebee vs the NYCC prime bumblebee (orange vs yellow) I grabbed these guys at TRU in Sacramento.

**added** also Prowl is repainted to become Barricade, and of course Prime is painted black for Nemesis Prime, Starscream mold for Acid Storm
JukeOutlander
What's the DPCI for the sets?

Wow, thanks for the info, now I know I have to get this 3-pack!

There's another Bumblebee variant, from wave 2, a translucent one.

Check the "prime at Target" thread, there's a list of all the DCPIs buried in there on like page 3 or 4 or something.

These are also $7.99 at Target, much better price than at TRU.

$7.99 for the 3 pack? That's a great price!

Yeah, at that price it actually is a "super value."
Spoiler
Walmart has the same price of $7.99 for the 3 pack.

So like Lego stuff, TRU is now marking things up like 90% ($8 to $15).

I really hate TRU.
JukeOutlander
Is the DPCI for the individual bot shots the same for the 3 pack and the one with launchers? So far I've only spotted the Autobot 3 Pack at my local TRU.
SwineTrekkie
Wow, the 3 packs are only $7.99 at Target and Walmart? I'm glad that I set put back the one that I saw at TRU the other day at $14.99. That's a mad-crazy mark up. Also, with the singles being $1 more than every where else, I think I'll be avoiding TRU when it comes to the BotShot figures.
RedAlert Rescue
There's some sort of larger giftset that also seems to have the same grey tires Bumblebee in it. so so far that's Bumblebee (wave 1) Bumblebee (autobot giftset) Bumblebee (chase) & bumblebee (battlemask) + another repack of the second sort.

I'd rather had a stealth one in the 3 pack personally.
escutler
I just picked up both of these three-packs at Walmart tonight. They were $8.96 (minus $3.00 for using the coupon- nice!). I was surprised to see it was about a dollar more than Target, but still not a rip-off like $14.99 at TRU! I'm telling you, TRU's prices are horrible, for almost everything I've looked at there! Like JamesBenjamin said a week or so ago, I don't know what anyone would ever buy LEGO (or Transformers, or Pokemon cards, or...) there unless they were on sale, or an exclusive. I guess I am lucky to have an insane amount of Targets and Walmarts nearby! /rant

The three-packs are really nice. There were three of the Autobots pack and only one of the Decepticons pack when I picked them up- I want another Decepticon pack!
