    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    All three of 'em are new molds! Was NOT expecting that...

    Did you see how many different packs there were? Just those two, or more variants?

    So:

    Grass Guzzler: Lawn Mower
    Mucker Von Diggs: Spade
    The Pollinator: Flowers

    Wouldn't it make our lives SO much easier if you only needed two packs to get all three of the missing LL bots?

    So easy, it has to be a trap...

    Only the two different packs were there, but there was a bunch of each, so I’m guessing there’s just the two (?)

    Do we know what’s in the blind-bubble for these two packs?

    The new three look great. Do we have pics of the lawnmower and spade in robot modes?

    They are out in Hong Kong. Just got mine today

    These are the blind figures that come with the arcade gang

    Those 4 new characters are all color changing figures.
    as for the blind figure,one pack contains the lawnmower the other contains the plant repaint from series 1n(bonzai tron?)

    Okay, I believe this confirms that there are 4 different Arcade Renegades packs, since that has 2 from the first pack reported and 2 from the second pack reported.
    Thus it would make sense that there's one more pack with Wrist Banned, 24K-Bit, The Fizz, and Pixelfin.

    Wait, what? That can't be right. One pack contains both of those visible in the package, that would make one pack have 2 of the same toy. Either you've gotten something mixed up or there's more than 2 different packs, then.

    @griffin-of-oz :
    The watering can is Nozzlesnot.

    We got the Bakery Bytes, can Canada please get the Garden Packs? Also cool, only need one to complete the whole set. Which of the other 8 are in that set so I can figure out which Bakery Bytes set to pass up on to avoid too many dupes?

    If there's only 2 8-packs to speak of, then the recommended ones are both Lawn League packs and the third or fourth Bakery Bytes 5-pack for McMuzzsaw if he isn't inside either of the blindpack bubbles. (We might have a Grit Sandwood scenario with him.) Batter Splatter and Flat Flour Face are in both 5-packs, so getting them won't be as much of an issue.

    8-pack duplicates (not counting whoever's in the red bubbles): One each of Bum Sprout, Cavi T., Chief Cherry 3.14, and Reci P. Cooker

    @prime roller, did you buy any of the 8-packs yourself? If you did, could you open up the blindpack bubbles and show us what's inside them?

    Sorry, I didn’t buy them, but Tygar128 has them and reports that the pack with the flower pot & spade comes with the lawnmower as the blind-bubble figure; and the other pack’s blind figure is one of the plants.

    @Tygar128 can you confirm which plant it is? That pack already has a Bonsai-Tron repaint in it and it seems weird that the bubble figure would be another of the same mold. Confused.

    Excellent. The recommended packs for Series 1.5 are both of the Lawn League 8-packs and one of the four 5-packs. Batter Splatter and Flat Flour Face are only available in the 5-packs, so people will have to choose which characters they want duplicates of.

    Lawn League 8-pack #1: Bum Sprout, Silent Shade, Nozzlesnot, Reci P. Cooker, Chief Cherry 3.14, Grass Guzzler, Cavi T., McMuzzsaw (blindpack)

    Lawn League 8-pack #2: Bum Sprout, Cavi T., Chief Cherry 3.14, Luckaneer, Mucker von Diggs, Reci P. Cooker, The Pollinator, Grass Guzzler (blindpack)

    Duplicates: 1 each of Bum Sprout, Cavi T., Reci P. Cooker, Chief Cherry 3.14, and Grass Guzzler

    @Scrapper6, I got your list right here.

    Nope it's back. 3 is the max order so it won't let me order any more. I'm still not sure if any of the hidden bots are brand new or not...

    Hey uh, am I assuming by your comment that the group buy isn't happening anymore?

    Indeed I see that now too - ordered a third and it wouldn't let me order a 4th. So if there are 6 different packs (as the listing says), how is one supposed to (theoretically) get a full set (other than trading)?
