    I’m assuming the remainder of the gold ones are in the 8-packs and those weird packs with the balls and stickers? No need to fret about chase figures just yet, not until we see the contents of the remainder of the wave.

    I sure hope so (partially because I have an 8-pack case on preorder from Entertainment Earth). I think we'll know for sure when a second person spots the 5-packs-- if the blind-balled ones are different for them, then we'll know for sure. This whole "no instructions" thing is the primary worry driving this for me, and having 7/8ths of the 5-packs with no Gold Bots is not a good sign.

    EDIT: Then again, assuming Goldenberry Duh'nut is in the special packs like the picture, and there's at least 2 of those packs with 1 guaranteed (presumably different) golden bot in each, that would leave only 3 Winners' Circle bots left for the 8-packs, which I guess is doable... Ugh, Hasbro just keeps pushing juuuust far enough with this, don't they, where it's enough to be an annoyance but not so much that they know a bunch of people will just give it up...

    I'll try to grab the Magic and Science Tribes, but otherwise, I'm gonna wrap up my BotBots collecting. There's just too much out there that I'd rather collect anymore. If they could at least get some media going I might be more enthusiastic about the story.

    Calamity Keys

    Meltz Down
    Slimey Slurps
    Make Over n Over
    Rink Stink

    She claimed
    Drippy Pup
    Meltz Down
    And the radioactive slurpee.

    I've got Calamity Keys and I like Rink Stink, just not his name.

    Neither of us want the makeup brush.

    Okay am I the only one seeing an extremely tiny sad face on the new pressure cooker Botbot? My brain knows that's just like a steam effect coming out and it has a Dr. Who cyborgy type face made out of the monocle two little lights, but my brain still gets thrown for a loop looking at the mouth too long.

    Well being under pressure for a prolonged period of time can lead to depression.

    I'm pretty convinced that it's supposed to be BMO from Adventure Time.

    According to the image in this post:

    BotBots Appreciation Thread

    Goldenberry D'uhnut, Fancy Flutter, Frostfetti Frostyface, Smore N'More, and King Cubano are in at least one of the Gumball Machine packs. Snotty Stem is in a single-pack. See-through bubbles in the Claw Game pack-- either in the official image or that brief "see how the gimmick works" video-- have also shown The Cobbler in one of those packs and Blurray Murray in another. (There's also a light bluish-green one in the video, but it goes by so fast I can't tell what it is: Hasbro Reveals New Transformers Botbots | Graphic Policy ) I also recall seeing what I THINK is Crumbly Yumbly in another one of those see-through bubbles for either the Gumball Machine or Claw Game packs, but I can't remember where I saw that specific stock image.

    Even with those new pics provided by freaky777, I STILL can't tell exactly what Loadoutsky is.

    I think it’s a 1980s fax machine with a phone on top. It has a certain boxiness to it and I can’t think of what else the blue thing on the altmode would be.

    Ahhh, yeah, now I see it. I think you're right, though the blue thing on top I think is a stapler, not a phone. (Hence a callback to Stinkeye Stapleton with the color.)
