Cheers for the heads-up - just bagged myself a case of the blind packs!
Where are you seeing this? I went to the site and can't find it. I'm trying to figure out if the wording or pictures make it seem like each kind of pack (the Gumball Machine and the Claw Game) has 1 specific set or if there's two different kinds-- hence whether I should buy a case or a set.
I can see Frostfetti Frostyface and S'more n'more in the clear bubbles in the Gumball Machine on Entertainment Earth's website, so that's one pack, but is there more...?
Found the wave 4 5-packs bot bots in Singapore @ Takashiyma. Bought all of them.. breakdown coming soon

TRANSFORMERS on Instagram: “And you thought herding cats was hard, amiright? Parents, see our story for links to buy #BotBots Series 3 figures and #WarforCybertron…”
"Your time is nearly over, Spice Wril. Brace yourself winter is coming."
First off, I REALLY appreciate this information. Thank you so much!
That said... what what what?!? Only ONE of the packs has a Winners' Circle toy? I'm assuming no instructions with these, like with the single packs? Crud, the gold ones might actually BE chase, with the blind-packed ones being truly random...
Okay, who's building the spreadsheet or Reco'ed Buys at TFWiki?
Swept the board with a full case of Series 4 today at Target, now I gotta sort out the "Keep" and "Return" lists.
Here's Hasbro's official product pages for the 5-packs, for better images of some of the Botbots and them in their "native environment". Some info in the descriptions is definitely copy-and-pasted and incorrect, however (for instance, that there are 60 toys in Series 4 as opposed to 69, and that each 5-pack has 4 variations):
OK here is a provisional list (not counting the ones in the surprise packs)
If I have made any errors let me know.
Red ones seem to be unique (again I have not checked the surprise packs) but with that previso red ones seem to be unique to a single release and green ones are duplicated at least twice. So if you are buying singles you can likely skip buying : 3,4,11,12,19,20, & 21.
Obviously this list will change further once the 8 packs contents are known.
Blind Bag Mystery Figures :
#1 Pop O' Gold #2 Miss Mixed #3 Starscope #4 Hiptoast #5 Snotty Stem #6 Zwonkey Donkey
#7 Liquid Gold #8 Cypops #9 Milton #10 Movie Munchster #11 Whirlderful #12 Rholley Doughley
#13 Pressure Punk #14 Burrito Favorito #15 Chef Nada #16 Game Older #17 Swapbox 16 #18 Snorg the Conqueror
#19 The Great Mumbo Bumblo #20 King Cheats #21 Whoopsie Cushion #22 Disaster Master #23 Googly Spy P.I. #24 Face Ace

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...
yup no instructions..
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.
Make Over n Over
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.
Wow, there are a lot of really fun and great designs in Series 4, keep the pics coming guys!
