    It's a holiday, first off. Secondly, I imagine with the new branding there will be a fair bit of a revamp of the site design so that will take longer. Also, Hasbro just sent out Series 3 packs to the usual sites just a few weeks ago, their focus isn't on Series 4 yet. Regardless, they'll get to it when they get to it.

    Look man, I love Botbots too, but the tone of your post and several of your previous ones makes it sound like you literally live for this stuff. That's not healthy. Calm down and enjoy New Years'.

    Ehh, if you really wanna get technical... all the botbots that you folks consider "repaints" are in fact redecos, as the actual plastic they use are not the same colored plastic with different colored paint apps applied.

    Anyways, remembered this thread from long ago... seems like the discussion has come up before.

    What constitutes a repaint and a remold/retool

    Just a discussion, we all see things differently.

    Oof, I want those.
    The Q-Transformers line also scales nicely with Botbots, I’ve found.

    Just got some sets in. Got 3 of the 5 packs both of the 10 egg sets. Wish it was less stickers, but fun unboxing the eggs.

    love the Tamale looks like a luchador. Mad scientist beaker. Old school mobile phone. Chattering teeth. Top hat. Smores. Love these guys.

    so along with getting series four stuff i'm still playing catch up with series three....i feel like hasbro make quackles and made sure botbots and beast wars fans would be able to get him no problem. following the guidelines getting the recommended along with the full box of singles i ordered online i'm sitting on four of the ducks. i think it was a good move to put him in so many packs. maybe it was intentional as a bit of an easter egg maybe not...either way i think it's cool and glad he's at least a fun mold.

    not complaining just an observation.

    Well it took four orders, but I finally got a full set of the Arcade Renegades. Just have the Lawn League left and Wave 4 and I'm all caught up. I REALLY hope that we don't get another random pack like the AR again when it's only online for most regions. makes it super hard to get what you want.

    However you chose, bro... with over 200 botbots available, it's hard pressed to display them all. I just keep them divided by series in a giant freezer bag, and the extras/dups I sprinkle around the collection for fun.

    They're so small, yet so many of them, that if I need a single one... it's easier to dig through the bag than it would be to disrupt a display that could topple.

    There was a post from Cybertron.ca saying the S4 blue bubble 5-packs have appeared at a TRU in Calgary. I will have to go check it out tomorrow. :)

    They’re definitely amazing, but I can’t take any credit for them! They’re from a line around four years ago, called Q-Transformers. Perfectly sized for Botbot interaction.
