    Bankshot has a horrifying undead spider face for a pinball game, that's why her expression is the way it is.

    That's a really cute backdrop with the various retro games :D  Nice little arcade you've got going there ;) 

    I always assumed she was just dizzy because of the vibration from the pinball :D

    She is. But I put Grimlock there because her expression made it funny.

    Got me a few botbots from a grocery outlet about a week ago and I havent been able to post about them yet. I love these little guys

    1: Reptilin' SleepStylin

    My favorite out of the bunch, hes a baby crib that turns into this ferocious looking beast creature.

    2: Sparklin gold

    Love this little guy, he looks like a star wars droid. He turns into a vacuum cleaner which reminds me of that one Dyson bot from revenge of the fallen.

    3: Party Goldster
    Probably my least favorite out of the 4, he looks so weird in bot mode, but I cant really hold that against him cause of what he is. Still a golden party hat is neat.

    4: The Corn Crusader
    His name is hilarious, hes a little guy that turns into purple corn. Hes so much like those mcdonalds changeables.

    Ah, interesting! I assumed he was a party popper, one of those things that bangs and sprays confetti and strings of tissue paper when you pull a cord. Almost like an exploding Christmas cracker.

    I think he's meant to be those party crackers, you know those things you pop apart and there's a surprise inside. Although that's kind of a stretch based on the molding on the end.

    I think hes supposed to be like a party pompom images.jpg

    If they were gonna repaint a party cracker Grandma Crinkles from series 4 would have a better mold images.jpg
    But it would still be a bit of a stretch

    Whoops wrong term. I meant party popper
    1.jpg

    The scan of the checklist is fuzzy but it even looks like the graphic for a party popper is tampoed onto him/her.

    Grandma Crinkles as a party cracker though, now there's an easy repaint idea.

    Hysterically I can answer this for you guys... Went to Grocery Outlet to grab butter after discovering I ran out and found some of the golden botbot packs and bought two, a golden baseball hat and a golden popinski. He’s basically like a bullhorn like Nemi posted with some confetti around the mouth and bell ends that transforms into a fairly “ehhhh...” bot. I’ll post a screenshot in a couple minutes.

    Man, that is the LAST place you want to get confetti. Trust me on this, I speak from experience.

    Something must be wrong with Grocery Outlets in my area, they're getting Battlemasters but not Botbots.

    Mine was kind of a hodgepodge of stuff. Some kind of small Rescue Bots things, a few remaining Botbots, and a lone Petraxeadon that I already have.
