    The regular will be in the multi packs it seems.
    And it might become that the regular version will be more sought after and valuable than the gold one

    It almost assuredly will have a regular version come Series 5.

    There is no regular blender for Series 4, it’ll most likely appear in one of the other 2020 series.

    Oh...I missed that part. I assumed the Gold was just a variant and a regular would appear in the multi pack. The gold blender is not especially appealing haha

    Twenty-FIVE? I thought a case was 24?

    That's a relief, otherwise it woulda meant a mix change to A/B cases like WOTC miniatures used to be or worse yet random packaging.

    Back in the other thread we've got someone who bought a package clearly stamped #18, but got Snorg the Conqueror, which Hotconvoy said is #16:

    Given that he responded the numbers were pretty hard to see, at the moment I'm taking #18 as Snorg and #16 as the unknown, since it's easy to see how someone could have mixed up 16 and 18 if the stamp wasn't clear.

    Should there be BotBots from a pharmacy in the BotBots Mall?

    If it's like most American drug stores, they could have lawn furniture, another candy bar and 2 liters of soda pop. Maybe one can turn into an exclusive Generations toy. LOL.

    Add me to the list of people miffed that wave 4 is coming out soon and I've NEVER even seen wave 3, except for some Arcade Renegades packs at my local Meijer.

    Said Meijer has been sitting on the same unmoving wave 1 & 2 stock for a few months now, so last night I got a couple of their leftover single packs. Got Technotic Sonic and Capt Swoon, both neat little guys. First time I've experienced the Sudsbeard mold.

    Maybe my childhood memory is a little fuzzy, but didn't CVS used to only be in malls? Or maybe I'm thinking of that GNC store that mainly sold nutritional supplements and such ;)

    I hate when this happens. Wave 3 is shelfwarming over here. It'd be nice if they could shift some inventory around a bit.

    Part of the problem is just the stores I have available near me.

    There's 2 Walmarts, one Target, and one Meijer within a reasonable distance. I already mentioned Meijer's issues, Walmart apparently doesn't carry Botbots anymore, and I avoid the local Target because it's not in the best neighborhood. Next closest Target is a 30 minute drive.

    But, Meijer did actually put out wave 2 once wave 3 was coming out, so maybe they'll put out wave 3 when wave 4 is in stores :p

    All I have are two Walmarts that haven't carried BotBots since last Christmas' Blind packs. I'm at the mercy of Amazon and I get whole cases of the blind packs via BBTS.

    Yeah, no shops near me stock Botbots - indeed the only Transformers that are sold in my town are Cyberverse legends and one-step changers at my local Tesco.

    All my singles, five packs and eight packs of Botbots have been bought as complete cases from either ToyWiz or Entertainment Earth; the Arcade Renegades I got from Amazon.com; the only actual BotBots I’ve bought in the U.K. were the Con Crew, which I got at the TFNation convention.

    So I’ve ended up paying a lot for these in import taxes. Worth it, though!

    Hnnnnng.
    I love Botbots. Having so many new ones to sort through in order to pick out my favorites is such a lovely problem to have.
