    You're missing one of the Dudeironi, Hawt Diggity and Burgertron.

    Sorry about that, did not. Absolutely slaughtered the packaging out of excitement for completing Greaser Gang finally so no info haha.

    I do know that the packing has the same etching on the back like the blind bags do, but not sure how reliable they are. I've seemed to get the same "Lost Bot" out of a couple different numbers now. And I've noticed some of the packages seem to have a "letter then number or vice versa" combination etched in the back so it's hard to really tell. I posted what I thought was a rough estimate for who was packed with who in the Texas Transformers Sightings page, but otherwise, I think the wiki summed it up.

    The lost bots aren't randomly packed. Each 5 and 8 pack has a specific lost bot attached

    Favorite Bot: Stinkeye Stapleton, Duderino, Spud Muffin
    Favorite Alt: Point Dexter, SA Cheese, Clogstopper

    Top Fav is Rootwing.

    But looking at all of them only Venus Frogtrap missed the mark. And Frohawk for not having his face covered in alt mode.

    Bought all eight 5-packs at Big Lots. Today receive 20% off coupon from Big Lots unrelated to that purchase.

    So I found my first BotBot blind pack at Walmart tonight.

    Just randomly hanging on a peg on an endcap with other miscellaneous stuff leftover from the holiday madness. I looked all over the toy department for more but my store is still in shambles. Just the lonely one by itself, and once I opened it to see who it was it seemed quite appropriate.

    This is the cutest damn vampire I have ever seen, it’s ridiculous. My first BotBot is one of the freaking Lost Bots and it’s one that I was actually wanting....I got Frostferatu right outta the gate. Too cool!

    This little guy is just too much. I love his facial expression and the hypno eyes. As smitten as I am, I’m already a little concerned. The first time I transformed him, his little bat wings were super tight at the ball joint and it’s already showing major stress marks. At least I know if he breaks he shouldn’t be too expensive to replace. It has gotten looser the more I transformed him, still being gentle with him. Frostferatu is already one of my favorites and I can’t wait to get more. My interest is definitely tweaked.

    So apparently I watched too many YouTube reviews in front of my daughter. She's transforming Botbots in front of me saying "I'll be like a video, Dada. You just move the legs up like this. Then fold in the wings, on both sides..."
