    The highlighter looks like a redeco of the blue one we saw at Toyfair so maybe we’ll actually see that guy in series 3? Otherwise this group seems to have all the other mystery guys from Toy Fair.

    Edit: oh wait it looks like the highlighter here is wearing a removable mask?

    Either way these guys look really cool, hopefully they’ll be somewhat easily available after the con

    Pretty sure the highlighter from Toyfair and the one shown here are one and the same, it's just a case of lighting throwing the color off. Went back and watched Seibertrons vid of the display and everyone aside from the Camera were indeed in the display. Although funny enough I missed the fact that both Tents were present. SDCC hidden in the info booth and the slightly lighter green series 3 on the roof.

    Ah right you are! I’m of two minds then, on the one hand I love the gimmick of these sdcc Botbots as nerds and cosplayers. On the other hand I was hoping all those mysterious Botbots from Toyfair were a sign that we were gonna get a Series 4. But hopefully SDCC itself will bring more news! I can’t imagine they plan on dropping the line if they’re making exclusives of them.

    Great, I want most of these. And I can barely afford to get retail Botbots. Exclusives might as well kick me in the nadds.

    Yeah, ignore my earlier insistence that some Series 4 Botbots were shown at Toyfair, then. Looks like these account for all of the ones shown that I didn't think could be in Series 3.

    CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT....

    26? I thought it was a 10-pack with all of them...

    The 16 Arcade Renegades are an Amazon exclusive, nothing to do with SDCC as far as I can tell...

    Ooh, forgot about the red guitar. The black & green maraca we've seen packaging artwork for on the Series 3 boxes,though.

    Those might be Lost Bots for Series 3. We don't know who all of those are yet.

    The black maraca is probably the Lost Bot for the Music Mob for Series 3. But the red guitar is definitely an oddity in that there’s already a guitar in Series 3 (Axwell, the light blue guitar seen in the single packs).

    Beastbox already answered that but yeah definitely. Use Cuddle Wuddle as Polar Claws little buddy or something. Or give him to Primal, I mean Megs has Quackles.

    Speaking of which I completely forgot Waddle Pop, Rootwing(plus all the redecos for Rootwing and Stinkasaurus), Javasaurus could be that bridge between BW and BM or just a protoform thing. There's probably more but the NY weather right now is leaving me rather under the weather.
