    I really like Javasaurus Rex. Reminds me of Grimlock

    Honestly, he's one of my favorite Botbots. Just a fun design in both modes.

    He's a very nervous sort
    If he's even near a little heat
    He'll become a worrywart

    Meltz Down looks like a very polite Botbot. Like he's constantly saying, "Why hello there, sir/madam. How are you this fine evening? Shall I open this door for you?"

    Such a gentlebot.

    I love Dinger and 24K-Bit's bios. Especially because Dinger has brain damage from too many blows to his head.

    "Dinger always getting whacked with stuff. Other bots whack Dinger and Dinger fly through air. Dinger like to fly through air. When Dinger go far, other bots happy. It make Dinger not smart, but Dinger like make bots happy."

    "24K-Bit, yeah, you know me
    In the arcade I'm royalty
    No lines, no wait, VIP on scene
    Bonafide player, button-mashing machine
    Skillz on point each and every day
    Crowds gather round just to watch me play
    See my name at the top
    You know it's legit
    High score, number one, 24K-Bit."

    I dunno, what's my favorite limb, or vital organ?

    Yup, it's Quackles. Duderoni and Javasaurus are way up there, alongside D-Pad Chad and Hashtagz. And Fottle Barts and Cuddletooth, stop making me pick this is hard okay.

    Does anyone else scheme up Botbots? My girlfriend and I were bouncing name ideas around, in the short time I concocted:
    - Overlard, an arrogant jerk of a Bacon Botbot (why isn't there a bacon Botbot already?)
    - Char Czar, a regal toaster Botbot
    - Deep Freeze, an overeager rectal thermometer Botbot

    Okay, so obviously I can't use that last guy. She came up with:
    - Treasure Trail, a pink electric razor that transforms into a cute little pirate Botbot
    - Manny Cure, a plucky Botbot that transforms into a pair of nail clippers

    He does look like he should be opening doors at a fancy hotel in the middle of nowhere. The worrywart references are from his bio.

    Just got two Arcade Renegades packs (took a while to ship from Amazon US to UK)

    I got pack 3, plus jackpot pack 7, so pretty happy to have the whole set for a minimum of fuss.
