    Got super lucky today! Wandered into a local Target and they had some Series 4 packs. Got almost everything I wanted except Pop O Gold, Milton, and Whoopsie Cushion.

    Okay, this gets my hopes up a bit. Ben Yee got in that Transformers Promo Box that TFW got in a week or so back (the one with the Bakery Bytes, Cyberverse, and Siege/35th Anniversary exclusives). He copy-and-pasted the promo text:

    Promotional: Hasbro Mailer Celebrates 35 Years of Transformers

    Each Bakery Bytes pack includes 5 figures from 2 exclusive teams: 3 from the bakery bytes and 2 from the lawn League! 2 of the included bakery bytes characters have color change features. Just rub the figure to reveal the hidden color! Also look for lawn League 8-packs (sold separately, subject to availability)

    I may be overestimating Hasbro here, but I don't think they would've put that in if they weren't eventually coming out.

    Holy crap, his potbelly is an avocado pit! He may be a shellformer, but I want him now just because of that. I love those little details.

    In that last pic he looks just like VINCENT from The Black Hole :D

    And just found those three all at the same place! I'm having great BotBots luck this series! I think I got all the gold ones from the blind packs.

    Found Blindbag Botbots at Food 4 Less.

    These are the ones we pulled.

    Does this mean the flashlight lacks a face? Or is it just mine? 15740197826251754258039.jpg
    I like the Christmas tree.

    Okay nm. The head was just stuck.

    Where could one find the individual Botbots codes if one were to want a specific Botbot from the blind packs...?

    I can’t tell if you’re intentionally mistransforming all of them.

    Here is a duck related question. If one went into the kinda store that sold Duckies... What colour would you see that wansn't Default Yellow.
    I have occasionally seen blue and pink, Black and ones with flags painted on them ( Upon a further search I was able to find, Purple, Green and white ones).

    I just wonder if they repaint Quackles what colour would be appropriate ?

    Maybe as a Golden Duck - that would be nice perhaps.

    Envy is a sin and Prime Roller is the enabler.

    If you don't mind paying hideous shipping fees Series 3 are easily available in the UK.

    Not with so many repaints in Series 3.
    When it was clear we weren't getting the Lawn League in the States, I made the decision to stop going all in on being a completist and just go after the ones that I really liked and the rest would be bonuses. Hasbro just can't get these (or most Transformer) out at brick and mortal anywhere near me, so I'm not going to be too worked up if I miss stuff. I'd probe more upset if they were bothering to do media and I had favorite characters from a cartoon that I wanted. That's literally why they are still making characters from 1984 in every other TF line, so you'd think they'd know enough to do that here too. Shrugs.
