    I used this one that was emailed to me, but it was weird at the time. It said that check for other sellers or whatnot, then it showed "sold and shipped by amazon" it was weird, but it seems to be sold out again.

    Don’t worry Beastbot, Series 3 will release late July; super late July

    P.S. Can you tell me the roles of the Series 3 Blindpacked Botbots?

    Found the Series 2 8-pack with Cantuna up here in Canada finally. Not sure how many total ship in a case but it was the only one from around 6 other packs.

    No sign of S2 singles. But 5 and 8 packs are available.

    Both 5-packs and 8-packs come in cases of 8.

    What a weird weird set. Plus that Optimus mask has to be pulled apart and inverted for transformation.

    Do you think the quality of said mask is up to the task of repeated transformations, or no?

    I don't suppose the alternate 8 decos are packaged in plain sight on one of the packs?

    nah, that would be too easy

    Hasbro is obviously trying to drive collectors crazy

    Not really no. It's pretty thin paper. It'll be fine the first twenty times or so, but I kind of wished they included a second replacement one in the package as well.

    Ah, that's a shame. Guess I'll have to be careful, then. I may just leave it on the Optimus side and not bother with the coffee sleeve side. Thanks for the info.

    So taking what we know so far... orange are new bots, green Series 2 reissues and red Seies 1 reissues. (Colors match series bubbles.)

    • All Packs: Tutu Puff, Old Cool, Clawsome, Bankshot, Crackle Corn, Knotzel, Greed Feed, Driver Ted
    • Pack 1: Tangry Tart, The Fizz, Pixelfin, Sheriff Sugarfeet, S'up Dawg, Shredder Jack, Laceface, Hawt Diggity
    • Pack 2: 24K-Bit, Wrist Banned, Sweet Cheat, Papa Click, Skillz Punk, Chilla Gorilla, Spud Muffin, Duderoni
    • Pack 3: ?
    • Pack 4: ?
    • Pack 5: ?
    • Pack 6: ?
    Any others seen yet? If those two packs account for all sixteen Renegades and everything else is just different Series 1 repacks, then two packs might be all any of us need. Hmm, maybe I could even give Junior his own Duderoni to terrorize...

    So that tells me I should remove the mask completely, scan it into my computer and print my own sheet of spares. Stick the original into a hard coin case and display with the homemade proxies...
