    I actually haven't figured out the way for me to display them. They're all in a box right now. I was considering getting some of those mesh metal pencil holders, painting them the corresponding colors of each tribe, and affixing them to some sort of wall mount, but I'm not totally sure yet.

    I use some of these, in the clear plastic. I might grab the blue and the pink for different series in the future.

    I was thinking of doing the symbols as well! Does the sticker book include those by any chance?

    Yes, it does. Each tribe has it’s own page of stickers.

    Currently building them into my Alternators display. Looks like they’ve invaded a car show room.

    That's a fantastic idea! Now I wish I didn't sell half my Alternators...

    Yep, but just for the first 11 tribes from series 1 and 2.

    So, I'm having some issues figuring out exactly who I need from the Bakery Bytes to get a complete set. I'm not really going after a complete one now, but I'd like to pick these up so if I decide to the hardest to find stuff is out of the way. Which of the four packs do I need?

    The blind bag blister for each is: (clockwise top left) Cavi T (the cup of sugar cubes), Nozzleshot (watering can), Chief Cherry 3.14 (cherry pie) and Reci P. Cooker (the cookbook)

    I'm waiting on UPS and FedEx to delivery a bunch of new Bots this morning. Waiting.... ugh.

    So assuming you’re able to get the 8-pack with the spade, flowerpot and lawnmower, you only technically need two of the four 5-packs for a complete set - the one with Nozzlesnot the watering can, and the one with the dark grey bonsai tree, neither of which are in that legendary 8-pack.

    Or any Bakery Bites set and both the Lawn League ones. Slightly more expensive but probably a little easier

    OK, so I decided to do some BotBots YouTube vids, on a team-by-team basis, starting with the S1 Backpack Bunch.

    Apologies for my boring voice and fat fingers, In my head I sound a lot more interesting and enthusiastic, but hearing myself back I sound like I'm giving a PowerPoint presentation on accounting tips or something! I'll have to fix that going forward. Maybe drugs will help. Go easy on me.

    UK Botbots blind bag cases don't have those packing flaps which is a bit of a shame.

    Opening / playing with them one by one is a bit agonizing :D  just started with it and I am only in day 16. My big order of series 1 and 2 from the US have just arrived in my country, and am still waiting for it to be delivered to my house.

    Hopefully the Lawn 8-packs are still available in Taiwan so that the only thing I will need to worry about is the Series 3 recommended 5 & 8 packs, the arcade renegade pack number 6 and the Christmas Tree from the Blind Bags

    FedEx didn't show up with my new Bots until almost six in the evening, so I don't have much time to mess around with them yet. I really adore the Spoiled Rottens that I have. Having angry looking Milk and Cheese hanging out on my laptop still makes me chuckle.

    My wife's Pulse order came FedEx yesterday too, so I know I've got my Con Crew already hiding away for Christmas. :)

    Pixelfin is that hard to find? Maybe I'm just lucky.
    The first AR set I ordered was set 2, and one of my kids ended up with Pixelfin. Then a few days ago, my wife unexpectedly bought a set from Meijer, mainly for the kids but I also got my pick...and by coincidence it was the exact same set. So 2 sets, 2 Pixelfins...but no Sheriff Sugarfeet, 24K-Bit, etc.

    When they received the aforementioned AR pack, my kids begged me to go on the website and find out their personalities. They then proceeded to have Knotzel make jokes about Tutu Puffz's lack of dancing ability, Tutu throw a fit, and Cackle Corn laugh his ass off at the whole thing. :lol 
    With such strong personalities, Botbots are begging to be made into some kind of show. It's kinda annoying that Hasbro has the budget for a dumb Cyberverse show, but not for Botbots.

    I've gotten two sets of the AR from Amazon, got everyone else in those sets, yet no Pixelfins. All I need to complete series 3 is that damn repainted hat...

    Would you be willing to sell one, or trade one? I'll have to see what I have up for trade, but I do know I've got some rubs, trips, and even some quads...
