    I don't recall hearing a date and with the complete comms silence I'm not holding my breath. I'm about ready to suck it up and go trawl eBay for the last few I need, eat the buttrape scalper costs just so I can close the books.

    Question for those who know: is Clogstopper, the plunger, 5mm compatible? That is, can a Deluxe hold him?

    So… do we think there’s any hope of anything new being shown off at Pulsecon this week?

    I really need to chase the last couple of 8 packs I need.
    Getting close to Xmas as it is - I am once again reminded of the huge missed oppurtunity in there not being a Botbots Advent calender.

    they've never considered the line as for collectors, so probably not...

    but I'd like to be proven wrong...

    I don't see much evidence that they've done much consideration of the line at all since even before the world went sideways.

    Every single one of those fan Friday things, every time they wanted to get in front of a camera and show us new product, I'd go "Maybe it's this one!". I'm a delicate man, and I'm ready to be hurt again.

    Anyway, I put a dad hat on Papa Click and it actually looks really good?

    Anyway, I still have my Pokébots in the meantime, I got shoe

    We're going to find out about a potential Series 6 when someone in California finds them at Target or something. Just face it.
