    I love the flower pot, shovel, and watering ca but the lawower is basically just Grit Sandalwood and the transformation is just puling the bottom out tl become arms. Sort of disappointing.

    Watering can is cool but I wish the color change was a little more... existent? Like it just goes from one shade of blue to another. Good bot tho.

    If we're on that I'm looking for Pixelfin, Battersplatter and Flat Flour Face. I'd prefer to buy as I'm not in the US right now and trading would be a big hassle.

    if you're ever back in the States and still need Pixelfin I could trade him for one of your extra Lawn Leagues (assuming you have doubles)

    i took a look at the pegs at Target and all they had was what looked like a whole wave 2...and of course Hamurai #22 was not present...he's definitely being sought out by those in the know

    If you are in Europe right now we can work something out pretty quick. Got plenty of bakery bytes dupes but not going to ship to US due to high shipping

    Well I'm pleased to say Sainsbury's in the UK seem to be restocking with wave 2 singles (still on sale for £2.25) and so I was able to get the ones I was missing #10,11, 21, & #22. So I now have a dinosaur Coffee Machine, a hamhock with a sword, a tropical sports drink and a Belt Sander I couldn't find before. I hope this Boat full of stuff Hasbro is promisng for Aug/september has some Botbots on it as Arcade Renegades is in Smyths so someone should get the darn thing so I can buy it and not waste my time getting the wrong one (number 6 isn't it ?).

    I do wonder does the Con-crew set have their own logos for :
    Fantastic Fuelers
    Line League &
    Meet N' Greets ?

    They do indeed. FF has a drink can. LL has a game pad. MNG has a camera. Don’t have pics at the moment but you can see the logos on some of the packaging photos where it has the fake panel schedule.

    i got him in one of the packages I got off of ebay (there were sold with a neon orange draw bag with Sensei Spikey in both modes...I think they were giving these away at SDCC) and he is quite charming...

    i just looked more closely at his instructions and he's peeing on the snowman!

    [​IMG]
    the stack of blocks and the canoli were the other two...$20 total, not bad for $9 worth of bots and maybe $6 for the bags)...

    i opened one of the 8packs since it had a unique wristocrat...and the maracas...which I was about to complain about-the unnecessary repaints...

    but Smooth Shaker has a way cooler deco than Dizzy Bones...the Day of the Dead look come across much better in the wave 3 bot

    I think they should go to town with repaints...deco them up...tampo them...make us want to get the newer version...

    is it possible to partner with real brands? I saw some shopkins that have real brands represented now...(Maybe Hasbro could put a Pepsi logo on the soda can? Not unprecedented as Hasbro teamed up to do Pepsi Prime once upon a time...or McDonalds logo on a fries, or make a KFC bucket)...

    I tried so hard to find these at SDCC but I never found them! Hasbro booth never made mention of them either.

    Going to the mini branded Shopkins, I did see a booth that was marketing licensed miniatures for blindpacks of Vaseline, Pepsi, etc. Neat concept.

    Holy smokes I was thinking the same thing once I found out the Shopkins were actually a thing. I would love a Hershey bar repaint for Remorsel or have like a Dell/HP repaint of Rad Haxx(?). If they do a KFC Bucket it better turn into a damn chicken!!!! :lol  So much potential but I kind of doubt Hasbro will shell out for the rights to use those brands.

    impatience got the better of me so I cracked open the 8packs I had left

    the candy corn guy Sugar Breath epitomizes what a great botbot should be...good alt mode, fairly involved transformation and good looking bot...and I hate actual candy corn too...

    ambitious and mostly pull it off: the crib Nampy, stroller Highroller, pacifier Shushifier

    somewhat problematic: grapes Bunches (hat doesn't raise to show off his eyes & backpack gets in the way)& avacado Avocando (he's a shellformer through and through) & trisouratops (if only his legs blended more to make the orange rounder)

    regarding future ideas...would they ever do an actual toilet for Toilet Troop?

    Malcontent is begging to be repainted as Megatron with that buckethead

    Perhaps KLG would be easier to get on board? Or one of its copies, like FBC, KFG, MFC, or KFC.
