    Maybe BBTS' estimate of 3rd quarter 2022 wasn't a mistake after all...

    Can someone confirm? The four sets being released are:

    Case of Vehicles
    Case of 24 x blindpacks
    Case of 4 x five packs
    Case of 4 x eight packs

    If someone buys all four cases they will have a complete set of S6 plus a number of duplicates?

    Cheers!

    My 2.5 year old daughter is still going on about “Plunger and Flashlight.” She puts on red socks and says, “I’m a plunger. He’s silly.”

    And I can’t even remember the last time her brother watched the show.

    Seems like Hasbro really missed some marketing opportunities for Botbots.

    UK Hasbro Pulse still doesn't even have BotBots. Not that I could afford it right now anyway. I think Amazon.com have them and available to deliver to the UK though.

    nice, I ordered off of amazon to hopefully beat my pulse preorder...even though I'll probably end up with a ton of duplicates...not sure when or if individual packs would turn up at retail...probably will have to get another set of the racer vehicles anyway as I believe there are two in a set but four variants...

    Well, if anyone gets an extra Kremzeek, Bacon Butcher, Autobot Symbol, and Xenomorph Grapes, I'd be willing to buy them off you.

    So this might confirm some theories that hasbro was just giving ridiculous long placeholder dates to be safe incase of supply issues when things have improved, followed by a lot of mainline transformers that were slated for Dec and have been showing up in retail early as a few months ago. This seems more like a realistic release time for those BotBot figures as it seemed ridiculous to me to have a toyline (that usually helps promote a show/movie) not be out till a good year AFTER the said media has aired when most of the target audience will have probably forgotten it by than or have no interest in wanting toys of it anymore.

    I think you're right about the play-it-safe placeholder dates, but the BotBots situation still seems less than ideal. It's been exactly 5 months since the show dropped on Netflix in the US, and these new toys don't have any direct ties to the show anyway (in terms of characters), plus we don't even know if they'll be sold in stores where kids would happen across them. But yeah, still better than next April!

    I saw in the amazon thread a buncha people who pre ordered the newest legacy wave (Skullgrin, Armada Starscream, etc) all the sudden had their ordered updated to be arriving next week, than was changed back to the original release frame in Jan. Amazon musta been having some serious glitches or something on their site I'm guessing. I'm thinking with how early stuff is popping up though we prob still won't have to wait all the way till next spring for the new botbots, but it won't be next week <_<
