    You got it! Of course, that doesn't mean the books are closed... we're still talking about the possibility of Volume Discount. The more the merrier! :)

    So the Season Greeters have 4 5-packs. Huh. Let's see here...

    Pack #1: piano,moldy sandwich,Yule B.Bored, Sugar Breath,Lost Bot

    Pack #2: Q.U.R.O.B.O.6000,Highroller,
    Stringaling,Halloween Knight,Lost Bot

    Pack #3: perfume bottle,Choc-O-Lawless, Sugar Breath, Stringaling, Lost Bot

    Pack #4: Treat Elite, Pop-O The Clown, Sugar Breath, Yule B. Bored, Lost Bot

    I love Highroller's name. I'd be delighted if Hasbro used it for a mainline character at some point.

    Not happy with Stringaling's deco. Feels too similar to Frohawk.

    Choc-O-Lawless and Treat Elite's names are guesses based on their altmodes.

    I'm curious to see who the other Lost Bots are. They can't just be Greeny Rex and Strike Four.

    If this goes off, you get as many sets of four packs as you sign up and pay for. :)  If you want an entire case for yourself, or even two cases, as long as your check clears I'm happy to oblige. No idea how many sets of figures you'll get out of those packs, but probably something like one and then a couple away from a second.

    Just saw the leaked images of the Series 3 Botbots Season Greeters 5-pack, and I could have sworn that the Christmas tree was in one if them? So nice to know were getting more sugershocks... Please tell me the berries are one of the Sugershocks? Also, how many of the SugwrShocks, Toilettroops will be added to their assigned groups? .. Not to bombard someone with questions, but are there going to be any new ShedHeads added to their tribe?

    TFWiki has a list, but I'm not sure how reliable it is.

    The basket with balls on top is a basket of berries, so it's not Choc-O-Lawless. The berry basket is very likely a member of the Fresh Squeeses, it fits their theme to a tee.

    I think you're right about Treat Elite, but I'll wait for some kind of confirmation for I update "the list".

    It is weird that the Season Greeters have four different 5-packs, but now that I look at Hasbro's press release it does only list them and the Playroom Posse as 5-packs that we haven't gotten so far. (The 8-packs for Series 3 will be Fresh Squeeses and Goo Goo Groupies.) So with this reveal, I'm assuming the Series 3 5-pack Botbots will be 4x Season Greeters and 4x Playroom Posse, split up evenly between the teams just like the 8-packs.

    -Remember, a team member is not necessarily in their group's packs, even if they're released in the same series. (For example, see Stinkosaurus Rex from the Toilet Troop, or Sandyman from the Shed Heads. Toys who belong to a group theme could also "officially" be Lost Bots.) But yes, the Christmas Tree is coming. Same with the Snowman.

    -Answered your question above about the berry basket.

    -Treat Elite/blue & gold Frostferatu is almost assuredly a Sugar Shock. Choc-O-Lawless also sounds like one, whatever it is. The Toilet Troop has a gray Nobeeoh redeco and probably the brown/orange Poo Sham redeco, that's as far as we know for Series 3. Not any new Shed Heads that we know of-- there IS a white Totes Magotes redeco coming, but based on its color scheme I'd bet it's with the Goo Goo Groupies, meant to be a bag full of baby supplies.



    Also, an FYI for anybody who isn't holding out for specific packs-- Entertainment Earth has the full case of 5-packs in stock: Transformers Botbots Collectible Figures Wave 2 Case - Entertainment Earth

    So it is a berry basket. Wasn't sure if it was that or a container of candy-coated chocolate balls. Probably have to wait until SDCC to find out the remaining names and case assortments (especially for the Lost Bots). I'm looking forward to getting the moldy sandwich and the Christmas tree.

    Pretty sure that's not Choc-O-Lawless as it appears to be a container of berries.

    As for Stringaling, yeah I wish he had been done in a blue or maroon to differentiate it some.

    Fully aware of how the Lostbots work, as well as the single packs.. My real question was during Toyfair we got a glymps of the Series 2/3 packs, and I could havr sworn the christmas tree was not just a single.. And it was more a statement than a question.. I know its coming. The berries wete not displayed with the freash squeezes, but we also have no idea on who the Coffee cup is or its tribe. I know about the grey Nobeeoh, but was curious as to who else fillsThe ranks on said tribe? And the brown and orange Poosham is chocolate sauce.. Thats more than likely the other Sugershock, A real shame to hear that about the shed heads, but considering theres srvetal botbots ubknown to us atm, aswell as botbots like the Spoiled Rotten Orange/Tricerotops( Which is more than likely a LostBot, im guessing) considering it too was never displayed with the other Spoiled Rottens.. All I know is im really curious as to who these unknowns are ect.. This is goong to be great.. Ty btw.

    Edit: Btw, what tribe does the bag of ptetzels belong to?

    Bad news, guys, the Lawn League would be $20/pack through my contact. Here's what W. says:
    So that works out to $80/set (plus 9.9% local sales tax) and no case-lot discount.

    If anybody wants to drop out, I totally understand, especially with the Bakery Bytes starting to turn up on shelves to give us hope that LL might soon too.
