    Got my S5 8-packs from Entertainment Earth and the S5 5-packs from Collecticon Toys today. The lumberjack boot and the bell jar are my favourites so far. Of the repaints, I love the deco on the lawnmower. Digital camo, wild stare... I bet they saw some strange things back in ‘Nam.

    The crib, the apple and the meat grinder/pencil sharpener continue to be terrible moulds, though.

    Still waiting on the S4 8-packs and 5-packs (both preordered from EE), the S5 singles (ordered from eBay), and the S5 Cardio Clique 5-packs (preordered from Collecticon), so in a few days time I should be done with S4 and S5. Then I can wait until August to do it all again for S6!!!

    Also found series 4 8 packs at local target. They were doing buy one get one 50% off so I think I really scored this time. Just wish they had the 5 packs too.

    “Look how they massacred my boy.”

    I feel like there’s zero chance someone hasn’t already done these Godfather bits with the guy, but I didn’t know this thread existed until series three, so I missed out on them.

    Like many, I’m finally seeing series four on pegs here, but Amazon already took care of most of my needs there. Like three dudes left that I need, and then I rest. Until April.

    Found a single series 5 five pack at my local target in MN. Never did see series 4 five packs at retail. It was not a recommended buy, guessing I have local competition lol.

    Looks like target skipped the 5 packs. Singles, well we'll see what shows up after the series 3 ones sell through. My closest one has about two cases worth on the end cap...

    SWEET just nabbed all of the Series 5 5-packs with golds in them from eBay for a seller who was selling them for just barely more than cost. Within a week I'll only need the Series 5 singles and I'll be set with Botbots 'till August. GIMME DAT GOLDIE TERRORTWIRL

    (And yes, will be putting up more extras in the Sales thread when I get them.)

    And now that everything has died down from all the opening of packs and Toyfair madness, I finally have time to do the:

    Series 5 Rarity List!

    For those interested, here's the Rarity List for Series 4: BotBots Appreciation Thread
    And for Series 3: BotBots Appreciation Thread
    And for Series 2: BotBots Appreciation Thread
    And for Series 1: BotBots Appreciation Thread

    Compared with Series 1-3, the rarity stars are a bit more accurate, and one thing is correct-- all Gold Botbots are indeed in one pack. However, the rarity of some non-Gold Botbots has been "downgraded" to make the Gold Botbots seem more desirable, and so some on the checklist are still incorrect.

    This list can help particularly for trades, to determine your Botbots' relative "worth", or to help you pick out the best multipack for you if you don't have the full selection at your store. So, I'll be breaking up the Botbots according to how many different packs they appear in:

    COMMONS (in 3 different packs):
    -Bok Bok Bok-o (Chicken taco)
    -Bot-T-Builder (Handweight)
    -Brash Butterhead (Popcorn machine)

    -Skippy Dippy Disc (Walkman)
    -Slurp-a-Derp (Bowl of noodles)

    -Tranquillabeast (Headphones)
    -Wasabi Breath (Sushi)
    -Wah-Waaah the Clown (Party horn)

    My Targets still have series 1 + 2 stuff dead stocked so I can't imagine when we'll get series 4 singles.

    I just realized the BotBots more is not a great place to go, one of the pet Gold Fish Died and they put it in the Toilet.
