    Oh man, if they released a Menorah BotBot...
    Actually, I think an entire Hanukkah set would be feasible. Menorah, latkes, dreidel...those last two would be SUPER easy to make. They're already halfway to a Gelt bot with 24K-Bit!

    Quackles is amazing.

    I doubt a websites is possible then again this line is performing better than other small lines like bot shots, construct bots and battle masters (2014) so you never know..

    You guys weren't wrong about Bunches. He's probably the most disappointing Botbot I've played with besides defectives. I can't get the back parts positioned so he can stand correctly. And could the top pull up? I can't even see his face...

    To add insult to injury, his grapes mode looks like his butt's sticking out.

    I feel bad bashing him because his description makes him out to be a really cool guy. I hope they go the retool route if they want to revisit the mold. Please no repaints on this one.

    I honestly think that much, at least, was intentional.

    Also I think a green redeco of Bunches is all but given.

    yep, but I think the pretzel has probably got the most disappointing transformation

    I didn't think much about Latte Spice Whirl until I had him in hand, thinking he's pretty much like all the other slurpee/soda cup guys, which he is, but he has a nice chest piece flip that I didn't expect (and none of the other cups have if I haven't missed a step on those)

    I agree with this.
    I got Knotzel with my Arcade Renegades pack, and he’s probably the most disappointing Botbot I have.

    What’s funny is, his transformation is very similar to Burgertron, and yet Burgertron has so much more going for him.

    Just now getting into series 3... case of 24 is preordered at bbts.

    I think I did good haul in one single target run today... I think I'm only going to be missing 2 8packs to finish?

    Am I the only one that hasn't even glanced at any botbotbio, and could care less about gender-choice foods and items?

    I've read the Botbot bios and enjoy the vast majority of them, but I tend to not pay attention to the gender choices in my head canon unless they really fit well.

    Hi all, had to sign up just for the BotBot goodness. Looking for some series 2 & 3 trades/purchases at the moment. UK based but happy to purchase internationally.
    After The In-Sole & Mocklate from series 2 and Dinger from series 3 as well as the Grave Rave pack, Playroom Posse 2 and Seasons Greeters 3. Will have some series 1.5 spares in the next week hopefully.

    That is hilarious! :lol : He must be best buddies with that weird, buttcheek egg toy that's floating around.

    Who’s the blind bubble guy in the baseball & teddy bear pack?
    *edit — I TFwikied it. It’s Smooth Shaker the black maraca!

    This set looks really good, with Quackles and Cuddle Wuddle being must-haves — Megatron can have his ducky, and Optimus will love his new teddy bear.
    Cool looking is tiny little Dinger the baseball to go with series 1 Batsby, and Swoonberry’s fruit and basket colors look nice.
    Smooth Shaker will go well with my other favourite group Music Mob guys.

    I am definitely interested in series 1.5
    I'm a completionist, and my son and I REALLY need the Bakery Bytes and Lawn League...

    I've got a couple extra In-Soles and a bunch of other doubles and triples. Plus I'd be willing to pay for the 1.5 sets...

    Will only be individual figures, not complete sets I’m afraid. Basically got 2 Lawn League packs coming so will have whatever doubles are in those.
