    Might pull the trigger on Arcade Renegades today too... Maybe.

    I still need Bakery Bytes and Lawn League! The completionist in me is screaming right now...

    Quadritto. I just hope they show up on ebay or something. I just need like the unique lawn-league molds outside of the watering can since I'm pretty sure the 5-pack Bakery Bites covered me for those molds.

    I need them all. All the Botbots. It's a sickness, collecting TFs... I've been collecting since the early 90s, and I'm ridiculous enough to buy all the repaints and slight mold variations (looking at you, Armada Optimus...).

    Series 1 + 2 are complete, need 1.5, and about half of 3. I pulled the trigger on the Arcade Renegades today... Here's hoping I get pack #6...

    But these Botbots are too effing adorable to pass up.

    I think I'm gonna go mold complete rather than COMPLETE complete. Unless Arcade Renegades hits brick and mortar around me, there's not going to be a feasible/easy way to get all the repaints.

    That’s my strategy. Collect my favorite version of a mold. It’s so tough though.

    I hope that we have not heard much about Series 4 - is only because they are saving them for New York Comicon.

    wave 4 would probably start appearing around the end of the year, so it is possible they might show them off (NYCC is October, right?)

    I mean, given the fact that the line has been available for only nine months, I feel like they’re right on schedule. That’s a lot of little plastic dudes in a brief period.

    But yeah, I got Quackles! Adorable, but the blindbox version unfortunately puts the number right on his chest. Thankfully, an X-acto knife took care of that.

    I've only gotten a few BotBots from this series, but these two are easily my favorites so far.

    Looks like TF Wiki has the S3 Green Highlights added now.

    I found 3x S3 8-packs today at Target but only 1 was viable for the 'waste-less-money' on S3 list. :)
