    Seeing Bunches from that angle in the photo makes me want a redeco of him as a pile of white soap bubbles named Sudsy.

    Aw, that's a darned shame. Thanks for the reply, guess I'll have to temper my expectations when I receive my Botbots Thursday...

    It's not THAT bad. There's slots on the top and bottom parts of him that fit his limbs, and he 'pegs' together well with them. He does have a kibble problem in bot mode, though, with the bottom half of the grape 'shell' not letting him stand well because it doesn't fold up enough.

    the Candy Corn is my favorite so far. The crib's weird... it's like... a kobold? XD I'm not really sure what his bot mode is supposed to be. The weirdness of it reminds me of z-bots, but it's kinda cool that the end of his tail comes off and becomes a weapon... or maybe like a cane?

    Also, interesting how they put tape over the blind pack part of the 8-packs so you can't just rip 'em open in the stores now. Prolly a good idea.

    Honestly, the biggest downer so far for me is the recolored Venus Frogtrap. It's a neat idea, but the original mold's transformation didn't work, and getting it again without any real improvement is kinda pointless. Stringaling as well is a bummer since he's barely even a repaint.

    lol like that will stop anyone!

    I wonder how soon before we see swaps in botbot packages...been seeing a lot of repainted wrestler figures disguised in Marvel Legends packages with a dismembered figure as the build-a-figure part

    **I need 24k-bit!**
    have pixelfin to trade or will buy the token to finish off my arcades...

    Has anyone opened, or is there a list for, the 16-pack of Arcade Renegades Botbots?

    I ordered it as a prize for my kid for doing his school work. Each day he gets to pick one out of the pack.

    This 16-pack arrived from Hasbro today, so this was the first day of doing prizes and it started off with disappointment.

    My kid picked one of the mystery packs and when he popped it open, there was a regular old series 1 Skillz Punk game inside.

    I have to say I feel a little ripped off as I thought this series 3 pack would have all series 3 Botbots in it and not recycle old series 1 figures.

    It wouldn't be nearly as annoying if Hasbro recycled a rare series 1 figure, but Skillz Punk is fairly common and my kid has three of them already.

    Okay yeah, I think I'm good now, they can stop giving me Strike Fours.
    I have tons of duplicates that I'm eager to trade for Botbots I don't have yet, I'll be posting them in the Botbots trading thread. Sardank, Halloween Knight, Sensei Spiney, Avocando, Batterhead, Quackles, etc.
    Avocando is rightly criticized, I can't help but love the guy. They cram so much personality into these things. I had high hopes for Bunches, though, and he kinda let me down.

    Thanks. I just looked all of that up and oh, man, that's awful. For $30+ they shouldn't be shafting people with series 1 repeats.

    i wonder how many people are ordering multiples in hopes of finding that lucky pack and returning the rest...

    heck, I'm considering doing that just to get that darn 24k-bit figure I still need...6 sets and he's in 50% of them...

    Maybe I missed it, but where all are they selling Arcade Renegades aside from the HTS store on ebay?

    Also found s3 blind packs at my local target in addition to getting a couple 8-packs from Amazon and getting Arcade Renegades tomorrow... good week for BotBots.

    For me it did.

    God, I loved Z-Bots. Still have mine. Yeah the crib guy is supposed to have a cane because he's a grumpy grandpa dinosaur thing.
