    You have the same duplicate packs I do. (I wanna know who is getting all these extra Goldie Rocks.)

    Yes on both accounts. (Printer is probably the best bet out of the three given the stapler.)

    Series 4 recommended list (my guesses, fewest amount of duplicates):

    Blindpacks: 1 (Pop O’Gold), 2 (Miss Mixed)*, 4 (Hiptoast), 5 (Snotty Stem), 6 (Zwonkey Donkey), 7 (Liquid Gold), 9 (Milton), 13 (Pressure Punk), 14 (Burrito Favorito), 16 (Game Older), 20 (King Cheats), 22 (Disaster Master), 24 (Face Ace)
    *if she isn’t in one of the Surprise Unboxing packs

    5-packs
    Home Rangers #2: Heat Freak, Pop N.Lock, Rolley Doughley, Tricitrustops, Zanzabar

    Home Rangers #3: Incog-Eggo, Roarista, Suave Verde, Whirlderful, Goldie Rock

    Magic Tricksters #1: Bemyne, Critically Complained, The Great Mumbo Bumblo, Whoopsie Cushion, Mr. Business Esquire

    Science Alliance #1: Doc Kit, Dr. Flaskenstein, Eye-Goon, Grandma Crinkles, Lunchador

    Science Alliance #3: Aday, Dr. Flaskenstein, Loadoutsky, Starscope, Windbag

    Duplicates: 1 Dr. Flaskenstein


    8-packs (with unique characters in them)
    Movie Moguls #2: Bogusaurus Rex, Fizzkick, Grandma Crinkles, King Cubano*, Movie Munchster, Ranger Lampton, Swapbox 16, mystery bot

    *if he isn’t in one of the Surprise Unboxing packs

    Wilderness Troop #3: Aday, Cam The Man, Crabby Grabby, DJ Fudgey Fresh, Flare Devil, Loadoutsky, Ranger Lampton, mystery bot

    Duplicates: 1 each of Grandma Crinkles, Ranger Lampton, Loadoutsky, and Aday



    Once we know who the 8-pack mystery bots are, it’ll be easier to fill in the gaps on this list.

    Both of those have gold outlines around their checklist entries, so they're probably in at least one of those packs.

    So it’s the outlines, not the star rating. I knew there was a method to it. Couldn’t remember what it was. Thanks.

    Actually the ratings may be accurate this time. (3 stars= 1 pack, 2 stars= 2 packs, 1 star = 3 packs). For every toy that we know so far in terms of its breakdown (i.e., it's highly unlikely they'll be in the Series 8 blind bubbles or special 6-packs) this is true so far for the checklist. (Most of the ones that have yet to make an appearance or who have a lower "inaccurate" star rating have a gold outline and thus should show up in 1 or 2 of those packs, BUT it's also important to note that some-- such as Milton-- have a gold outline but have been seen in other packs. I.e., Milton has a gold outline and has a 2 star rating, and has so far only showed up in the single packs, so I'm expecting him to show up in 1 6-pack. So Milton could technically have either a gold or a purple outline, Hasbro chose gold for the checklist. I expect Zwonkey Donkey to show up in in 2 of the 6-packs (or perhaps 2 of the 8-pack blind bubbles), since he has a 1-star rating but has only shown up in the single-packs yet. Again I could be wrong, but at this point it seems like this is how things are shaking out this time. (Which is why it's my working hypothesis that only Liquid Gold and Pop O' Gold will be unique to the single-packs.)

    I've just come across these guys and couldn't resist getting some for the kids xmas, very reminiscent of the old happy meal transformers that were out when I was a kid. IMG_20191218_070810.jpg IMG_20191218_070802.jpg interesting from others posts that they are already on the series 4, toy shop I found them in was mostly series 1, hopefully can find more in the future.
