    I got in the four bakery bytes sets (finally) via Canada...the assortment is atrocious with the same botbots appearing in like 3/4 of the sets, but what are you going to do?

    stop collecting? AS IF!

    so I guess the color-change feature is only on the new mold characters...

    speaking of which, I really like the watering can's squat rotund look...and the rolling pin, while simple, is satisfying in both modes...I thought I'd like the mixer, but it's not quite as good as I thought it would be...

    the rest are redecos, of which the pie is oddly really nice compared to its original pepperoni pizza incarnation...the pirate lotion really only works once (sort of like how I can only see the book in its original deco as the 'right' one) for me...still haven't figured out that potted bonsai which is too angular to look like a plant...the saw is green now (ok, not horrible looking but nothing great other than its unique transformation)

    i do like how the bakery bytes faction symbol is essentially the Autobot one wearing a chef's hat

    So, knowing that my irons are an integral, no-negotiation part of my life thanks to the ex's stalker, said GF wants me to teach her to shoot and wants to start shooting Service Rifle matches with me. Rather than just doing his and hers M4's,since she's Canadian I thought it would be a nice touch to build her a C8, the Canadian version of the M4 (longer barrel and green as opposed to tan). Since she's a Resident Evil fan (seriously, she's told me that if she ever gets a crack at nailing Milla Jovovich my options are that I either learn to share or become the next name on her Exes List), after three years of trying I finally got a one-batch-a-year Umbrella Corp. frame to build it around, and the first step is color-filling the Umbrella logos on it.

    Right now, it's actually closer to a chop-top, long-barrel version of the Colt 727 carbines Delta Force used in Somalia, which'll change as soon as the Canadian Green furniture goes on. For now, using my M4's receiver to hold it together it looks like this:

    And the goal is this:

    But we should probably move this to a "The Guns Of TFW2005" thread...

    Ok...so last time some one was talking about botbot genders and that got flagged cause it was leading to possible inappropriate discussions.
    But showing their rifle and talking about getting customised for their GF is on topic?? (no offense to the owner)

    I *did* note that it would be best to split that off to another thread while answering the question. If he hadn't asked I wouldn't have elaborated...

    Killing your BST odds by crap like this post below... seems you have nothing better to add to the topic?

    I asked, he concluded... it's a nice gap between series 4 to get to know your fellow botbots chaps.

    Gender will always be a no-go topic in here, just as race, creed, religion, politics, etc... you should know that already.

    Are you collecting every set that comes out as opposed to every individual botbot? I'm only missing the rolling pin and the mixer myself so I'm considering buying them loose.

    i'm just getting a set of each individual botbots...it was just easier to get a set of four rather than figure out when/if I'd ever get any Lawn League packs...I'll definitely have an extra rolling pin and mixer if I open all the packs...(haven't pulled the trigger on two of them because I know there is one Lawn League pack that would fill all remaining slots I need (the lawnmower, flowers, spade, cookbook, cup of cocoa) and if I can keep those packs intact they would be easier to sell...

    Still waiting for the Series 3 single packs to get here, but seeing how the quickly the new 5/8 packs were replaced with old Series 1 stuff (were do they keep finding these?) I'm kinda worried.

    Remember, holiday season is coming up before this Series is over. If you have stores locally that carry Botbots, I don't think you'll have anything to worry about.

    (Unless Botbots actually ARE cancelled beyond this year, but... let's not think about that.)

    I just opened some more Botbots - and I had the return of an old favorite odd event - I've not had for a while.
    Oddly coloured glitter on the toy. In this case my Cuddle wuddle is covered in Green Glitter.
