    Recently picked up a few of these. Now I'm obsessed. They have so much character and they're very expressive. Now I have to play catchup. Has anyone done a "best of" list for these?

    It’s had five new posts in nearly two years, feels like we’re probably okay with keeping the discussion within the active one.

    One of the Botbots threads is the news thread... hopefully will be bumped with some actual news, next time...

    Meanwhile, MP-44 Spike and Carly are in perfect scale with Crabby Grabby! *joke opportunities multiply*

    Past few days, lots of people have been finding Botbots at Citi Trends stores. The stores near me had Series 3 5-packs and Series 5 8-packs. Those Series 5 8-packs were never that widely available, in my experience, so I was excited to find a couple of sets I still needed.

    Just wondering, is there a good checklist available online? We were so far behind on some items from some waves that when S4 Blue singles showed-up at the Dollarama for C$2, that I'm not sure who I even have anymore. LOL

    Robbie, but I call him “Bob” more often than not.

    Does anyone have any high resolution scans of the mall checklist inserts that came with the first three series? I can’t seem to find anything.

    Im glad the series is finally airing soon, which means the toy line should be revived
    However.......what is up with the art and the designs? They look rather bad, and are barely recognizable
