    “Doc, are you sure this is the best way to create new Botbots?”

    “I’m going to have a son!”

    This would be comedic gold.

    That’s a good way to make sure Hasbro stops sending free promo boxes.

    New Botbots listings at Entertainment Earth:

    Wave 4 case of 5-packs: Transformers Botbots Collectible Figures Wave 4 Case - Entertainment Earth

    Wave 5(!?!) case of 8-packs: Transformers Botbots Collectible Figure 8-Packs Wave 5 Case - Entertainment Earth

    Now this is interesting, because their listing for Wave 5 actually has Wave 4 teams, while their Wave 4 case which I have ordered has listings for unknown teams. Two possible outcomes, in order of likeliness:
    1. They got the Wave descriptions mixed up, and the "Travel" and "Asian Food" teams are the theme for the 8-packs in Series 5.
    2. They just got old, outdated info for Wave 4 and that listing will be deleted, and their Wave 5 preorder is for Wave 4. Nothing more to it than that.

    Anyone else notice that ebay listing has really high shipping costs? Pity to whoever gets that and has to pay $50+ on shipping.

    Nah, that's absolutely a big error on their part - something we weren't supposed to know about yet. Nice find.

    The aforementioned "Wave 5 8-pack" listings have been updated with pictures for all of the Series 4 8-packs! Obviously they don't have pictures of the blind-balled ones, but here's the breakdown of each pack outside of that one:

    Wilderness Troop #1: Goggly Spy P.I., Ranger Lampton, Swapbox 16, Aday, Grandma Crinkles, Bretzel, Eye Goon, ???
    Wilderness Troop #2: Goggly Spy P.I., Doc Kit, Tricitrustops, Suave Verde, Heat Freak, Snorg the Conqueror, Cypops, ???
    Wilderness Troop #3: Ranger Lampton, Cam the Man, Aday, Flare Devil, DJ Fudgey Fresh, Crabby Grabby, Loadoutsky, ???
    Wilderness Troop #4: Cam the Man, Rusty Von Cleave, Peels the Monkey, Fizzkick, DJ Fudgey Fresh, Pop N. Lock, Bemyne, ???

    Movie Moguls #1: Bretzel, Lumidope, Chef Nada, Incog-Eggo, Peels the Monkey, Rusty Von Cleave, Pop N. Lock, ???
    Movie Moguls #2: Fizzkick, Movie Munchster, Bogusaurus Rex, King Cubano, Ranger Lampton, Grandma Crinkles, Swapbox 16, ???
    Movie Moguls #3: Lumidope, Critically Complained, Doc Kit, Heat Freak, Loadoutsky, Bemyne, Peary Peculiar, ???
    Movie Moguls #4: Bretzel, Fizzkick, Tricitrustops, Snorg the Conqueror, DJ Fudgey Fresh, Roarista, Suave Verde, ???


    EDIT: I'll have to wait for the blind bubble and 6-pack breakdown, but things are shaping up where the rarity stars might actually be accurate this time:
    1-star= in 3 packs
    2-star= in 2 packs
    3-star= in 1 pack

    Which is actually a relief if you don't care about the gold Botbots, as this means everything else is in at least 2 packs.
    Though this will also make getting the case of singles much less appealing...

    Can someone advise me, HOW can you make the Toolbag mold figures stand properly? Both versions I have keep falling on their faces...
    Also I seen this in the S4 pics... but mine cannot pull his head this much out of the body.

    Thanks! Wow Zanzabar is totally the Blue Rajah. :D 
    Wait so the blue things are not Grandma Crinkles' arms, the pink ones are?
    And Mumbo seems to be a bunny driving an exo-suit!
    Flaskenstein is totally DR Insano. :)

    Hate to tell you this, but it's very difficult to balance that mold properly, and no the head can't come out that far. You'd think on the 4th release (Doc Kit) they'd have fixed it by now, but nope...
