    And the grilled cheese sandwich, Ketchup bottle, and hot dog. But I can get all of them in just two 8 packs.

    So not including people who got whole cases for reviewing, and not including any members who haven't posted yet, but I have a full collection that I've hunted down, to present to the thread :) .Very proud and have many duplicates as shown in the last picture (keep an eye out on Botbots barter/trade/for sale )

    I've heard about issues with Frostferatu so I'm very cautious with mine, so far no stress marks.
    Did they change the card design for the single packs at one point? I have one in front me right now and instead of saying there's 24 bots, it says 61. I guess they changed it to actually reflect the number of bots in the blind pack assortment.


    Except for the robot wasp, obviously :D

    I’m actually not sure if they changed the packaging. To be honest, as cool as I think they are I haven’t had much exposure to the BotBots yet. The blind pack I got is my first time ever seeing them in person. But I do hope to see more soon.

    I swear, if Hasbro makes an Imperial Measuremnt System variation, I'm gonna lose my mind.

    Edit: I just realized it's already ~2.50 (possibly 2.54) centimeters. That's pretty much an inch.

    Mind: blown

    Found some of the blind singles while looking for Skytread. Cranks, S.A. Cheez, Totes Magotes, Spud Muffin, S'up Dawg, Remorsel, and Batsby. Pretty happy with what I got. Spud Muffin is a bit difficult to balance in bot-mode with his helmet being a bit weighty. Gonna be difficult to grab a blind single here and there now when I get groceries...

    Target just put out some five packs. Got Tape Dispenser, soap dispenser, hockey puck, eclaire, head phones, laptop, the potted green haired planter guy, and the hammer.

    Only ones left are the mossy rock guy, fungi one and the cheese sandwich. Only one of those i want is cheese sandwich.

    I can so see G1 Megs conjuring up Sprinkleberry as a weapon-of-the-week against the Autobots, like he did with Kremzeek :lol 

    Megatron: “Behold the ultimate creation of Decepticon science. With this, I shall destroy the Autobots once and for all! Total domination of the universe is at hand!! MUAAAAAHAHAHA!!!”
    Starscream: “And HOW exactly, o mighty leader, do you plan on using a transforming donut to accomplish this?”
    Megatron: “..............SHUT UP, Starscream.”

    I'm not sure witch is better the look of absolute joy on Megatron's face because he's got a doughnut, or the look of fear on the doughnut's face.
