    Okay, so at least that means you only need 2 packs to get all 8 blind-balled Renegades (assuming you get the right 2).

    The 8 new molds are in every Arcade Renegade set. The 8 redecoes are split up between multiple packs, and as far as we know there is no way to tell what pack contains which without opening them. So, each pack contains:
    -The 8 new Arcade Renegades molds
    -4 Arcade Renegades redecoes of molds from previous series
    -4 toys from Series 1

    Amazon says in one spot that there are 4 different possible packs, and in another spot on the same page that there are 6.

    Ok cool, cheers for the info, people!

    I’ve just preordered three packs from ToyWiz - hopefully between three packs I can get all of the ones I need!

    Wow it’s super lame that the non arcade renegades are from series 1

    Personally, given that they’re randomised across four or six sets, I’m glad that four of the blindpacked figures are duplicates that I don’t need to chase around for.

    Yeah I got that same message the first two times I tried to order them. They only let me order three so hopefully they're aren't so many versions (or at least an easy way to tell which is which without having to open them).

    That's the 2nd time now I've missed the brief in-stock window with the reason being I had to - * gasp * - actually be taking care of my daughter at the time, who I'd very much like to buy these for. Hopefully they will be plentiful soon enough.

    Also I'm annoyed because I signed up for the "Notify me" and it never does. And then I have to re-sign up after every in-stock window because the system thinks "hey, it was in stock so like, we don't need to tell you now, right? okay cool unsubscribed you"

    Three? Aren’t these a static assortment?

    edit: Never mind. I see the clarification above from Beastbot X. Interest level -1000

    Edit: I mean whole packs, not individual characters.

    Everyone check again! I managed to snag a pre order for the Arcade bots just now!

    So if I'm reading this right, there are variants for the pack? Like if I want the entire team, I need to play my luck on multiple packs? If so, I hope I get a good pack for me, because I don't plan on ordering more... I'll probably trade those so don't really care for.
