    I'd be more in for a concrete donkey, so it can go in Lawn League or Techie Team :)

    That's a real thing I thought that was made up for the game.

    Do humans still use the Mall the BotBots are in?

    My current Snorg alt-mode theory: I think he’s supposed to be a car stereo (albeit a brightly coloured one).

    Back in the 80s (when hi-fi equipment was hella expensive), sometimes car stereos were more expensive than the cars they were in. Because they were a standard size (and therefore interchangeable with the stereos from other cars), criminals would often break into a car, just to steal the stereo.

    To combat this, manufacturers started making the stereos removable, so people could take them out when not using the car (and to deter break-ins). Such stereos would have handles on the front for easy removal.

    So given that Snorg is broad and flat, appears to have a cassette player, and has a front-mounted handle (which becomes the robot headphones), I’m thinking he’s an 80s-style car stereo.

    But of course, I could be wrong...

    I'm sure if there was a cartoon they would. Maybe one mall cop that is the only one who knows that BotBots are real and no one believes him.

    I had a thought about Botbots the other day and I'm really interested in seeing your opinions:
    Do the food-based Botbots rot? Since they are originally food before becoming transformers so do all of the food Botbots eventually become Spoiled Rottens and the Spoiled Rottens become food for Fun Gus?

    I don't think they do spoil, even the dairy ones. I think the Spoiled Rottens were already spoiled before the energon brought them to life.

    Hmmm, solid theory. I didn't know that was a thing.

    I'd like an Easter Basket that turns into an Easter Bunny or a variation of the Teddy Bear mould that turns into a bunny.

    If there was a pharmacy group of BotBots what would they turn into?

    Snorg reminds me a bit of a 1980's beach radio.

    My assumption has been that Milton is named after Milton S. Hershey, the found of Hershey’s chocolate and Hershey, PA. Though there’s no direct connection between Hershey’s and candy corn, but candy corn was discovered in Philadelphia, PA so maybe that’s the connection?

    It’d really make more sense as the Remorsel though.

    Another idea: there's a brand of triangular shaped candies called Milton...

    (These are yellow but they come in different flavours).

    Pill bottle (of various sizes, narrow necks and open necks)
    Cough syrup bottle
    Syringe
    Pill counter
    Pill
    Cream canister
    TUMs bottle
    ...
    My dad was a pharmacist, so I've had a few ideas.

    I don't think Hasbro would go anywhere near drug paraphernalia (legal or not).

    Now I think they should make a bong...Of course anything could be made into a bong. So technically, they've all been bongs...
