    Eye-Goon's in 1 5-pack and 1 8-pack, no single-pack.

    As for Perceptor... which version?

    You'd think so, but no, it can't.

    Now that I look at it again, I had intended for the upper jaw part there to form his torso, but it really does still kinda look like a creepy little gaping maw.
    I love him so.

    quick question:
    So I got an Amazon gift card for xmas. Should I invest it in a gumball and 1 claw machine? or how is the best way to get the most out of it? So many options...lol

    Well, that depends, are you going for completist or do you just want a "good selection" of Series 5? If you're going completist EVERY gumball and claw machine pack has at least 1 unique mold in it, so that would be the best case if you are going completist or near-completist.

    If, however, you don't really care about the Gold ones and just want a "good selection" you might want to get one of EITHER the the gumball or claw machine packs and then get 1 each of the Series 4 5-packs. This is because the Gumball/Claw Game packs are $20 each but only have 6 Botbots in each (along with 4 stickers, and 1 Botbot is guaranteed to be gold), while the 5-packs are only $10 each and, obviously, have 5 Botbots in each.

    If that’s the criteria, you can’t go wrong either way. Initially, I went for the claw machine set, based on the posts people left here over the last couple pages detailing its contents. But I also received a gift card and spent it on a bubblegum machine set, I get it tomorrow so I guess we’ll see. For me, the claw set had more that I wanted overall. I was also after primarily new molds, so one of each and the five packs will at least net you something new. You’re still essentially gambling and hoping for the best. As it was stated above, the capsule sets each have only six Botbots for twice the price. But I was more pleased with mine, overall. If you have no preference, buy a machine pack and a five pack, each will have plenty of new stuff.
    So, go gets it, my dude! Goooo!

    I’m hoping that we get some Bot-Bots based off of the style of Vintage computers (I.E the C64 , Apple 2 or TRS80). We’re already getting a Tape drive bot so they might as well go all out

    I'm honestly going to be mildly surprised if Hiptoast's bio doesn't have him as Avocando and Angry Cheese's Millennial child or something. (I'm sure it won't explain how it works, exactly, but then again neither did it explain how Sunstreaker and Sideswipe were "brothers" in the '84 bios.) I mean, he's got Avocando's face and... toppings, and Angry Cheese's body structure.

    I was reading bios in the sticker book and it seems like Sandy Man and Drillit Yaself are paired up, are there any other instances of that mentioned in Botbot lore?
    If they’re gonna keep making these things, I am absolutely going to need another book with bios from series three and four.

    I just got my order 10-packs in. I had ordered one of the crane game and one of the gumball machine. However, I received TWO crane game sets (both have blurray Murray and Mr. Memory Banks visible so it seems I also happened to get dupes on top of it.) Has this happened to anyone else?

    Other than Lovestruck apparently being in love with anything he comes across, not that I'm aware of.
