    Seeing how Beast Wars works by them scanning DNA, could that mean the food BotBots would work in Beast Wars?

    So I just realized based on the BotBots story, the BotBots mall must also host conventions for the SDCC packs to make sense.

    This mall of theirs sounds better and better by the moment.

    Well, death deli and sentient food aside.

    I think the press release actually says that the SDCC botbots are the result of Energon falling on to SDCC so these guys are a whole new batch hahaha

    This is what it said.

    "Imagine if BOTBOTS took over the halls of Comic-Con! BOTBOTS are mischievous, funny and super silly little TRANSFORMERS robots who came to life after a glowing mist of Energon fell down from the sky and turned everyday objects at Comic-Con to life! This fun convention pack includes ten exciting Comic-Con themed figures known as the CON CREW, a team of Comic-Con experts who are ready to take on the Con!"

    It's not SDCC or NYCC, it's just a random Comic-Con which could be in the mall for all we know.

    Oh you’re right! I was just imagining there was a really clumsy transformer out there who just kept dropping Energon everywhere.

    My origin story for the botbots starts with Starscream getting drunk and throwing energon cubes out of the Nemesis.

    I consider it a cloud of Allspark Energon along the lines of what created the Real Gear Robots. Also the Real Gear Robots need to be remade in Botbots.

    Nobeeoh was my first Botbot, so when I saw Be-oh for a good price on eBay, I knew I had to get him. The white & blue really pop on him, & his facial expression is priceless. I don't have many Botbots, but this mold might be my favorite. I guess I'm going to have to pick up the gray version in series 3...

    Awww, man. I just saw this in the Arcade Renegades pack description on Amazon:

    "Discover the arcade Renegades: this pack includes 16 botbots figures: 12 from the arcade Renegades and 4 random figures from other themed teams! Purchasers will randomly receive 1 of 6 different arcade Renegades surprise packs. "

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JXNXGZH

    So, there isn't one fixed pack of all 16. And there's no way you can see the difference without opening them up. @*(%$.

    And if it's an Amazon Exclusive you can't shotgun a case... won't be totally random though, that'd mean too many instruction sheets unless they put everybody on one.

    What's the plan, buy 2 and offer the core group for Barter Thread? Or 3?

    I dunno who sucks sweaty hairy balls more, Hasbro or Amazon...

    I think I'm going to buy 2 since there's a young girl I know who will love all the extras. Can't justify purposely buying 3 of a pack that will be at least 8 of the same in every pack, myself. Hopefully I'll get 2 that will cover at least 6 of the blind-balled 8 Renegades so I'll only have to trade for a few.

    This is definitely a low blow. I mean, 16 Arcade Renegades in a 16-pack, how friggin' hard was that? Like, if all Botbots were like this, I don't think I'd bother.

    Had I known when I was deciding to get in what I know now, I probably woulda skipped BB's... and probably woulda stayed away from the Jurassic relaunch too.

    So a rubber ducky is just find and a teddy bear isn't, yes I know the duck was in the show.

    Working at Costco, I noticed one of the new trends we carry is the demand for charcoal infused products, I noticed we have charcoal toothpaste, charcoal infused tooth brushes, and even charcoal deodorant.......I think that might be what that grey Nobeoh mold is.
