    Got some Series 3 5 packs from Singapore:

    Playroom Posse (5-pack)
    Cuddle Wuddle, Dinger, Quackles, Swoonberry, Lost Bot Smooth Shaker

    Seasons Greeters (5-pack)
    Minnycake, Pop-O the Clown, Sugar Breath, Yule B. Bored, Lost Bot Trisourtops

    Hopefully someone finishes the recommended buying guide soon..

    On another note, the Quackles duck mode doesn't have the serial number at the front seen in other pictures.. not sure if it's just my copy or if it's a 5 pack thing

    I really like Cuddle Wuddle (teddy bear), Trisourtops (the orange) and my surprise favorite, the RAWR botbot, Sugar Breath (Candy corn)

    Botbots are awesome.

    Cool! I think I'll wait for a Lost Bot breakdown, though. I don't like buying blind if I can avoid it.

    I kinda like the blue-grey on the Goo-Goo Groupies packs. Reminds me of the Armada packaging. (The green on the Fresh Squeezes packs reminds me of Armada Wave 2.)

    Alright, I caved. (Darn you Botbots!) So many Botbots are in at least 2 packs this time, what I get via retail price will probably determine which packs I need to buy to finish things up. Even if I get a couple of doubles, this is probably more economical than buying the "least number of packs" on eBay. (No, where I live finding these at retail is not a viable option, unfortunately.)

    My hunt for series 2 Singles was a failure.

    I'll rework the spreadsheet tonight; after a rough day in Retail Hell in the middle of a heatwave, I need to cool down and rest first. :)

    Sigh, I just ordered a bunch of these in hopes of getting all the unique packs. Hopefully we can find out soon which packs are mandatory and which are not.

    Transformers Toys BotBots Arcade Renegades Surprise 16 Figures | eBay

    I dunno if anyone else has posted it, but the Arcade Renegade pack is up on Hasbro's ebay. (If no one has, does that count as A NEWS??) I actually picked one up about a week ago but forgot to say something. >< (going back in the thread, looks like others have seen it already. My bad!)

    Since the Goo Goo Groupies pack with Wristocrat is the only multipack with a unique in it (past experience says there will be no unique Lost Bots), there won't be many "must-buy" packs in Series 3, it'll just be how you can get them all while spending the absolute minimum of money. That's what caused me to cave in on Amazon and buy 2 each of the Goo Goo Groupies and Fresh Squeezes packs, I'll see what I end up getting for retail price and then get the remaining ones I need via trade and/or eBay.
