    Hey, I just updated the TFWiki with the lists of Claw Machine, Gumball, and 5 packs. Could someone who got these packs double-check to see if I got them all correct? The five packs especially since it's been a hot minute since I opened them.

    I'm super disappointed that series 3 didn't make the cut for this one. I have quite a few favorites I would've liked to have in book form and if this one doesn't sell well...

    But Trisourtops is on the next book so series 3 made the cut here though it seems to only focus on Lost Bots.

    You mixed up the blind-balled ones for Magic Tricksters Pack #1 and Science Alliance Pack #1. (Both Magic Tricksters packs don't have Mr. Business Esq.) Otherwise they're all correct.

    Oh haha! One of them swaps Hiptoast but I can't remember which. I'll have to do some quick backtracking in this forum.

    Yeah, I received a second Mr. Business Esquire from a Science Alliance pack, with Peels and the.... egg. I thought I was special because my Home Rangers pack today had Goldie Rock, but it seems he’s guaranteed for that particular set.
    While I didn’t end up with Frostyface, I’m really happy to have Crumbly Yumbly. He or she was right at the top of my list!

    Just FYI, the stock robot image for him is incorrect; you can rotate him around at the waist so that front flap (w/ the tail detailing) is in the back. This also gives him two "legs" in the front.

    Am I crazy? Is he not one of the best things ever in this configuration? The way he’s designed, the shape of his lower midsection really looks like it was meant to be unobstructed. But I feel like we saw some art or something that contradicts my belief, here.

    Steve is totally subbing for Fenton, isn't he? Considering they're both in accounting.

    I now demand to see Steve in the Gizmoduck suit.

    Why, 20$ for 10 Botbots makes them come up to 2$ each... here in Hungary 1-packs are between 1200-1400 HUF (4 to 4.75$) so this is a far better deal.

    But, the boxes says "10" on the sides of the surprise unboxing packs, not 6...

    I know, it's deceptive. There are 10 balls, but in 4 of them are stickers. There are only 6 Botbots in each pack.
