    As I said in the news thread...I honestly did not expect to be into these...I wasn't haten on em, but I figured they'd just be a little forgettable side line of toys...Now I'm putting them on my want list right next to Siege...What the heck?

    A couple are cute. I have never had any desire for a TF whose alt mode is *toilet paper*.

    I'm in the same boat. I wasn't interested at all. Especially if they didn't transform.

    But, I'm a sucker for the small, simple, transforming, happy meal style toys.

    The penguin-ice cream sold me on the line. The feet-->popsicle stick is just genius.

    Might be far-fetched to have expectations already, but I hope those hands are 3mm. If not, then it's no biggie.

    I really like the old McDonald's transforming Happy Meal toys, so I'm all on board for these little guys! My daughter is 3, so this could be something that we share. :)

    Do it. Once she starts collecting them,she probably won't be able to stop.

    "Honey,can we go to Target again? I'd like to pick up a few things."
    "But we just went there yesterday."
    "I,uh,really like those BotBots I got from there and I just need more."
    "But..."
    "NEED."
    "Okay." *runs outside to start the car*

    I was optimistically skeptical about these. I liked the artwork and the concept, even though I felt Hasbro is an little late hopping on the small collectible craze. However, as soon as I saw the actual figures and found out that they transform, I was sold on the entire line. Really hope the Botbots line succeeds.

    I just realized that these would be perfect for my cousin's kids.It'd be a great way to introduce them to TFs.They're small,easy to carry around,and if they lose any of them,they'll just have to get more.

    Another thing I just realized:my cousin lives near a Target that's about 5-10 minutes away from her house.Her family goes there all the time.If I get either of her kids addicted to this line,they're probably going to be spending a lot of money on them.

    One of her kids has a birthday in December-two weeks before Christmas.I have two potential opportunities to add BotBots to the list of gifts I'm giving them.

    *grins*
    *laughs maniacally again*
