    Does anyone need anything information or photo-related from the S4 5-packs I've opened? Bummed that there are no more Transformation instructions. The checklist sheet is... tiny.

    I’m not sure there’s much more information that we need from the per se, but I’d love some good clean pics of both modes. There’s still no where near enough pics of this wave.

    I tried a few using my phone, but using the flash makes them look shadowy and I don't have any natural light yet. :) 

    Here's a little golden nugget for example: S4 BotBots 5-pack

    the boxes look like they take up a lot of shelf space...not sure how long they're going to stay in stock taking up that much real estate

    First, I love the soy sauce bottle idea.
    I dug these guys out, because this discussion reminded me of them.

    Plus, they’re Takaratomy! Unfortunately, they’re a little too big to scale right with any of the smaller robot toys.

    But I’d love to see a global cuisine team. My contribution to the group would be a thin French bread loaf that transforms into a little dog I’m calling “Waguette”. And some cheese whose robot mode has a little mustache that I’ve named “Pepper Jacques”. Would prefer a new mold with a tiny beret, but a Holey Moldy repaint would also work just fine.

    Dude, these are f'in genius. Great names.

    On the subject of global food, y'know what would be cool? A German beer stein. Not sure it would happen, though.
    Maybe a plate of curry representing India, and a bowl of gelato from Italy (it could be called Blotto Gelato :D ) or even just a basic bowl of spaghetti and meatballs (named Pasketti :D )

    Better than using the Ming. Then it’d shoot death rays and try to kidnap Dale Arden.

    PASKETTI.
    Good god, that’s perfect. I wanna make Botbots, clearly this is our calling. I had mentioned these months ago in the thread, but I also came up with a Scottish bowl of haggis Botbot named “MacBarf”, and a bacon Botbot named “Overlard”. Which I guess would be British, since that’s where the modern day interpretation of bacon comes from. It started in China long before that, though. So I dunno.

    Am I the only one that wants a cat BotBot of some sort? On the topic of food BotBots how about Kitter Fritter which is a cat/fritter.

    Would love sushi bots. Foreign Cuisine lines. That would be great.
    Japanese would be sushi, bowl of rice, fried Squid on a stick, bento box, etc.
    Chinese line (ok Americanized Chinese food) would be egg roll, recolor of rice to be fried rice, fortune cookie, etc.
    French woul be a baguette, snails (Slow Cargo aka S. Cargo aka Escargot), etc
