    I wonder when they will show up in the U.K.

    I hope they have rational case assortments.

    ======

    I still need to get the Movie Moguls set with the cinema camera in and that single Pack set of goggles from series 4 is it.

    I am mostly there but not quite caught up sadly - I still need to find a single of that Console cassette from the arcade Renedgaders set with the mould change and that other toast repaint.

    I think I need to buy a couple again due due to faults of missing parts.

    I think organising them by series is a good idea I kind just jammed them in where they'd fit and as a result have no idea what I am missing. out of series 5 especially = I think it's just a couple of 8 packs and one single though (excluding things I need to rebuy)

    I suppose I should give some consideration to the serial number and no serial number versions though.

    I really need to actually tally up who I've got and who I want at some point. I know I want the Pizza Car, seriously considering ordering from Amazon.com. I do not get why Hasbro Pulse UK does not stock BotBots :( 

    I really want to get the Season Greeters, especially the Christmas Tree dude but apparently that's one of the blind packed ones and not in a box set :-/

    Perhaps someone will have an extra they'd be willing to trade?

    Yeah I’m checking my email every hour, waiting on Entertainment Earth to fill these pre-orders.
    Also, my wife saw this on a shirt and I thought it was perfect for them.

    no plastic-less for you Botbots!

    I assume there is still a secret bot under that giant emblem?

    There's 7 visible, and they're 8-packs, so yeah, looks like it. Probably the potential "oil slick" toy of the pack.

    Anyways, going by the names on the back of the packaging:
    Custodial Crew: Loose Deuce (poop), Unhandy (cleaning glove), Bobby Bluejean (overalls), Vomit Comet (vomit), Sergeant Scrubforce (mop & bucket), Caution (The caution sign is literally just called caution? Okaay....), Roboclean (vacuum cleaner), Clean Dive? (toilet scubber?), Grunge Plunge (plunger), Lady Loofah (I'm guessing the blue sponge), Granny Giggleclean (feather duster), [Something]well (by process of elimination, the spray bottle)
    Pet Mob: Aunt Kitty (that horrifying cat/grandma thing), Crickets... (cricket-- and yes, the ellipsis is part of the name), So Humerus (dog bone), Coach Huskey (Husky), Rattle Tail (rat), Overcoiled (snake), Fuzzy Fearless (hamster, I'm assuming), Poo-tricia Pickup (dog poop sack), Chow Wow (bowl of dog chow), Quacked Up (duck), Feathers, Uncaged (caged bird), Bully Bulldog (by process of elimination the pet watch, I'm guessing it's supposed to be a fitbit that "bullies" you), Anty Farmwell (Ant farm)

    There's a name missing for the Custodial crew, the shaver. Either that or the spray bottle isn't [Something]well and it's the shaver. One's missing, though, that's for sure.

    I have to say, there's a couple of good names in there, but I can tell the Botbots namers are running out of ideas.

    Maximum effort using the musical Botbots' names on the cassette boxes. The label designs are even based on their respective Botbots' designs.

    To be fair they have had to name far more individual toys than pretty much any other Transformers toyline since maybe G1 :lol 

    I see the Beast Wars have reached BotBots too :p

    Sweet! Would you mind telling us the names of the individual bots? Is there a catalog inside?
