    First time poster here.
    I'm from Malaysia where botbots distributions are weird

    We have toys r us with no Series 2 blindbags but tons of Series 1.5 - 8 packs Lawn Leagues (like more than 10 of em) - checked last week.

    Additionally, thought I shall contribute (if it matters), since TF wiki hasnt been updated
    Seasons Greeters (5-pack no.2)
    Halloween Knight, Highroller, Q.U.R.O.B.O 6000, Stringaling, Lost Bot TBA (Latte Spice Whirl)

    Welcome to TFW. The BotBots hole is vast and deep, but you can join the rest of us poor saps that are addicted to them. (You might be hearing your wallet swear at you profusely, but I just muffle the noise. It's not the boss of me.) /s

    To add onto your quote:
    BotBots Appreciation Thread
    TFWiki is probably waiting for pictures of the unidentified Lost Bots, so if you can add pictures to this thread, that would be welcome.

    Thanks, I've went deep actually. Managed to complete series 2 : )
    and... I'm struggling to complete series 1 (those bots in multipacks especially, help me!!)

    While here I am.. waiting patiently for series 3 multipacks.

    I know the feeling. I got wave 2 done as well and am down to 2 left for wave 1 (Good Tube and Major Lee Screwge). Hoping the wave 3 multipacks start popping up local soon, these guys are addicting to collect I swear.

    I'm willing to trade my Major Lee Screwge for (TBD series 2 / series 3 bots).
    Hit me up if / when all hopes are lost.

    Ahaha the plastic addiction is so bad. Recently my SO & I decided that we won't collect separately anymore (we used to collect each for ourselves), that lessens the blow on our pockets

    I hate not being able to pick the specific set I want to order on Amazon. Just not worth the risk to me.

    I ordered eight of each again to get around that. It works out pretty well and I can just return the unopened packs since I only need three of the packs. Is it excessive? Absolutely. But I'm an idiot and a completionist so...

    Anyone still have wave 2 plentiful in their area? In need of a few packs and good number of singles to complete my wave.

    I think I’ll have an extra Cuddle Wuddle if I buy all the recommended packs, so I’ll let you know.

    did anyone else burn out on these guys relatively quick? unless you're a completionist than it's way too much effort trying to just get the ones you want and be done with it. i didn't plan on picking up any series 3 but realized i wanted quackles and a friend wanted the pumpkin, so i had to buy essentially 10 unwanted botbots just to get the 2 i did want. stores won't stock single packs, either.

    also, highroller is pretty uh... bad. the stroller mode isn't super convincing.

    love cuddle wuddle to death, tho. very cute and a great use of parts.

    wow I only got 4 each on the hope they just grab one case

    if they keep repainting with minimal new tooling, yeah I could see myself losing interest at some point...

    at this point the chase is manageable...sure I'd love to buy in person but it's not terribly inconvenient to return unwanted packs to Amazon...buying a full case of singles eliminates one part of the burden...

    at least there is a set, determined scheme to how they are distributed...it would be holy hell if there were no identifying marks on the packs or if they were truly packed randomly in sets

    i actually like the stroller, but if they figured a way to cover his face better it would have been much more effective

    When I ordered 8 of the 8-packs, one of them gave me 2 of each which was fine, but the other sets (Fresh Squeezes I think) had only one of two and three of the other two. It is a tad random.
