    Oooh that is cool!

    As for xerox machine, I mean, other TF lines have 'pretools' might be that the mold was originally designed as a xerox machine but the game console version got used first?

    Yeah I was stunned. It's been so hard to find series 5 and some of 4. And man, I hunted.

    That Alan Tudyk gif. :lol 
    I really love that Yard Guard is slowly becoming a mascot for anxiety and general woe, the way Steve from Accounting is.

    Nice find, I'll have to stroll on over and have a look. Somewhat encouraging that they really are getting them out there, lately. Was supply really so limited early on because of the pandemic? Because none of my toy pre-orders have slowed down, and once factories were running again, the majority of them arrived months ahead their scheduled dates.

    Update on my commission, she gave me some preliminary face designs to choose from based on my input and let me pick what I wanted his disposition to be! The next day, he was finished! Here's my original Botbot idea that she created for me, Char Czar:

    So pleased with how he turned out.

    My guess is that earlier waves were over ordered and clogged up the shelves to the point where series 4 barely hit, let alone series 5. Hell, I never saw series 4 5-packs.

    I saw mine at Target very briefly when the wave was brand new and then never again.

    Yeah, I didn’t, uh... I didn’t tell her to do that. I just said I wanted a fancy lad, the buttbutt was a stylistic choice she made! :D

    :cry  Then it better come with a tiny chloroform rag.

    Seems like the BagBots could be their own little clique. Windbag, Firebag, Waterbag, Earthbag, Douchebag, Scumbag, Grocerybag and Colostomybag.

    I’ll show myself out.
