The evil eyes on even the blender mode (along with the cartoony "bulging veins" are hilarious.
I have seen those boxes they come in - they are knockoffs from some toyline that sells blind packed tiny mechs that look like MechWarrior ripoffs. I forgot the name but I see them all the time in InterSpar.
I came across some series three eight-packs yesterday. How many different eight packs were/are there? I counted seven different packs on the shelf. Just wondering if that was all of the eight-packs for series three.
There were eight 8-packs in Series 3.
Yep. Check the TFWiki, this was invaluable to me while trying to track down which packs to get.
Transformers: BotBots (toyline) - Transformers Wiki
That link is very useful.
That said, there's so much crossover between the eight-packs that I can't tell which one wasn't there. I've already opened my seven packs so I'll have to go through them and see what's what and what isn't.
Not that I'm going completist on this line. That way lies immense expense and frustration. I only ever binge on them when I find them cheap.
It shouldn't be too difficult. Nanny McBag, Wristocrat, Blabberbook, Stringaling, and Perfumigator were only available in one 8-pack apiece, so see if you're missing any of those. If you have all of them, then whatever the set is you didn't get, you didn't need. Everything in it was duplicated in the other sets.
Thanks for the info. I do indeed have the ones you listed so I think I'm okay for my not having found the eighth eight-pack. Does that include the blind ones in those duplications?
Also, am I missing a trick with transforming Croaks? The instructions say he folds down. There's a groove in the pot to do so but the arms get in the way.
Any word on if the line will return to Walmart and Target?
No, there's a big mistake they made with that one, all of the Croaks/Venus Frogtraps don't really transform. Only the little pot-legs come out. They made some mistake with the mold where the stalk can't actually lay down like that, so the mold ends up not really transforming. It's that way on all of them. It's my least favorite Botbot design because of that huge flaw.
The legs have a tendency of popping off on mine too. They're too tiny.
It does. As for the set you're missing, my guess is you only have one of either Fail Polish or Batterhead. Or if you do happen to have two of each of those, then Fresh Squeezes #3 is the set you missed (and therefore you should have only one Smooth Shaker).
I’d be as happy as Frostfetti Frostyface if I could finish getting all the Botbots I want.
Or, revisiting a prior idea... bigger Triple Changer BB's? Say, for the Spoiled Rottens a Deluxe size who goes from bot to dumpster to battle-bus?
No word about ANYTHING re our favorite little troublemakers... like Hasbro wants to forget about them or hasn't been able to get any store orders.
peels the monkey fucking sucks as a toy. just getting that off my mind.
My Ollie’s did t have Botbots (unless hey haven’t reached this part of the country yet)
