    Noticed on the new checklists towards the top right corner it says "available in assortments" and than all the squares by the name where you check them off are color coded to match those. Does this mean theres only 7 diff packs to get them all? Don't remember if the previous checklists had that or not? At the very least we can match what comes in what packs in a way without even knowing the packs?

    Ooh I like Zapfire, reminds me of of the Nerf N-Strike Elite blasters. Also, I suspect Energon The Nevergone maybe the personification of energon itself and maybe transforms into an energon crystal.

    Yeah, previous series had that.

    Gold=E7293 Asst= Only in the (cancelled) $20 Ball Packs.
    The other three Assts are the usual single-packs, 5-packs, and 8-packs. So if one has a red icon it's available in all three (assuming the checklists are accurate, of course-- usually they aren't, not completely), if one has a green icon it's in 2 of those assortments, and if it's purple it's only in one assortment (which I assume would be single-packs only).

    Also, I just realized, why the heck wasn't Mutt-chievious named Pup Tent? I mean, I thought that pun was literally the entire point of that redeco.

    Like I said, the community here has been generous with me. Least I could do was throw in some duplicates. :D

    Series 6 Surprise Unboxings:
    Transformers Botbots Series 5 Goldrush Games - New Surprise Unboxings & Brand New Tribes Official Images - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Toilet
    • Photo: Dumpy Downer (also in the package art), Jolly Germ-Dodger
    • Package Art: Gleeful Gleamy, Gil the Sea Monster
    • At least 2 unknown BotBots and 4 stickers, if the previous Unboxings are anything to go by

    Treasure Chest
    • Bonehead the Unbrave, Rubeus the Red, at least 4 unknown BotBots and 4 stickers
    • The package art isn’t visible, so it’s harder to guess who the other characters in this set might be

    I’m assuming there’s 2 of each set like the S4 Unboxings, but now that I’ve looked at the link again, I’m not sure anymore.

    The more I look at the sheet, the more stuff I find to like. I recall it being said before that some of the faces get a little too wacky, and I agree with that in some cases.
    Turning the stapler into an electric razor is a pretty slick move. And the rolling pin into an ab roller! Really impressed. Guessing Ducky Splinters is a wooden duck? Was kinda hoping for something more ambitious for our first Quackles repaint.

    I was working on my bacon repaints when it was brought to my attention that Botbots can hold Core Class figure weapons? Pretty neat.

    I don't think Series 6 will be the final one. I believe a probable Series 7 may come out after.

    Edit: Speaking of Series 7, do you think there should be a garlic and onion BotBots?

    Well certainly now there’s going to be one. What with the show and the listings we’ve seen. But I think the original intention was to wrap things up with series 6 in 2020.

    So if the plant botbots were real plants does that mean the gold fish one was a real gold fish?
