Do you guys have any guesses at possible new groups that could be in series 6?
Oh the fun we could have with Armada Unicron if Botbots had those Mini-Con Powerlinx ports.
Well, they both have vampire wings!
I am wondering whether they bring back the Toilet Troop, or the new team will have a new name, like Bathroom Buddies. They never brought back teams before... so curious.
Do you guys think they might make some bug BotBots at some point?
Yeah, I had this idea in the back of my head for a while. When Series 1 came out, I thought of this one BotBot based on a dragonfly that transforms into a Dronefly. His personality is that he is nosy and an eavesdropper. Since the idea of a bug BotBots is entirely new, I can assure you that it MAY happen.
Personalized Botbot storage bags on spanish Ebay. Not official, I bet, but neat.

Why would they transform into LIVING creatures? Not likely, no. Even the goldfish Botbot shown is likely some plastic bathroom toy, not a real fish.
Maybe they could turn into rubber fake toy insects though. Something you can get in magic shops to scare people with, so maybe to go with the Magic Tricksters?
One new team likely will have to do with money/jewelry. We seen a stack of green cash (a repaint of King Cheats) and a ruby.
We know from a mis-labeled Target listing several months ago that one of the new teams is the Caffeine Collective, which will apparently be one of the 8-pack teams. I can see a LOT of redecos going into that team-- the coffee cup obviously, but also redecos of the cocoa/sugar cube mug, the energy drink, the coffee maker dinosaur, the donut, the slurpee (as iced coffee), possibly the cupcake/muffin...
I'm down for Botbots that turn into bugs.
If a piece of Sushi can turn into a dragon...
What their alt mode is doesn't determine what they turn into. At the end of the day they all turn into robots. Lore wise, it's just coincidence that they resemble animals, bipeds, etc.
Missed opportunity having the bug spray can turn into a bug. The irony.
So all of the plant BotBots are plastic then even if their bios say other wise, plants are alive too.
Had a bit of fun with BotBots this week.
My country has been well behind on releases, we got series 1 mystery figures... then nothing for AGES. Series 2 eventually showed up in one store only and only in very limited amount. Then once again, no new or restock after.
Now, just this past Thursday I found wave 3 finally new in stock!... then I went to another branch of the same store on Saturday and found wave 4 just a couple of days later! What is happening? We just got sent a bunch of stuff all at once!
So now I've got a pile of new little TF buddies. Even a couple of gold ones which I love, other than those gold guys (which I knew about) series 4 was such a surprise I hadn't even looked at them in general yet because I'm like well we don't even have series 3 what is the point in researching them yet? Heh.
From series 3, Wizengreen & Trisourtops have been on my want list for ages so it's great to have them finally! Halloween Knight 8pack will be next pickup I think.
I call it “some aspects of pre 2020 are returning “
Seeing as BotBots are in a mall why hasn't there been a wet floor sign BotBot?
Maybe the purple candy corn was supposed to be cranberry sauce flavour....
Edited to add: whoever made this candy ought to take a long look at themselves in the mirror. Where’s the Yorkshire Pudding flavour????
I mean, I'm one of the few people I know who likes candy corn and even this gives me pause...
Anywho, I sure hope more Botbots are announced at some point. Like a telephone booth or something.
would kids these days even know what that is?
Just tell them it's the Doctor's Tardis.
When there's a clan called Retro Replays, a phone booth or even a rotary phone is possible especially when we already have Mr. Business Esquire.
Not to mention Mr. Memory Banks... though it looks like Hasbro is abandoning the smaller pricepoints brandwide.
No new TTC's after Series 3 dropped overseas in January, the termination of Battlemaster/Micromaster assortments in Siege, the lack of Series 5 single and 5-pack availability... what this suggests to me is that "impulse buy brick and mortar" that kids can pick up for allowance money is quietly being spiked as a market sector in favor of smaller-range, higher-priced, more e-commerce-friendly assortments.
Don't get me wrong, I HATE sounding like a Gloomy Gus and I want to see this projection proven wrong as much as anyone else here! But with the only things turning up being Waves 3 and 4, it doesn't exactly inspire hope for Waves 5 and 6 in this little line that had such BIG untapped potential.
Lucky you! WHat country are you from?
I have had the same luck in finding S3 blindbags, and on international children's day as well, when Müller had all toys discounted by 20%. Needless to day, bought almost all of them. Good thing too, as this was it - I have not seen any more S3 anywhere since then.
Isn't Milton supposed to be licorice candy?
What do you mean? Battlemasters still exist in Earthrise and listings suggest they will continue in Kingdom.
TTC is over because Cyberverse is over. Series 3 had Season 3 characters... there was no Season 4 and no new movie, so... unless there is a new cartoon coming in 2021 i doubt it would be returning.
Also, why would you think Hasbro would stop the blindbags? Small priced items still sell the fastest, since let's face it, most people are too poor to waste large amounts of money on toys. A single Botbot pack or a Kinder Surprise egg is still the cheapest option for a present when you are visiting a family with a kid.
Heck, Hasbro even created 12-pack assortments of the blindbags. That your local stores aren't ordering them is no indication that Hasbro is not making them. Heck, in Hungary, the single blind bags are pretty much the ONLY thing you can find in Müller, Interspar, or Játékvár/sziget and Régió. 5 and 8packs were only ever in Galaxy and only them carried the Arcade Renegades packs too... which, I have to add, remain in stores still even a year later, and they recently lovered the prices because a 16-pack is too expensive for the average hungarian salary.
