    Here's the names per set, I think my dud spud is a dud... looks like a series 1 release at first glance. (Spud muffin?)

    It's weird, there's a couple of differences between the actual releases and the catalog. In the catalog Dud Spud is orange as opposed to yellow, and Poo-tricia Pickup is white compared to transparent blue and originally had the same spoon accessory that came with Cheero. (Who... who picks up poop with a spoon?)

    Insanely busy day yesterday and so these are overdue, but I snapped a few photos this morning before work:

    I love all of the new ones!!!

    I will definitely need to get extras of the cat to make a less creepy bot mode for my daughter.

    I never thought this series would happen, still sort of surprised that they’re here.

    As with previous waves, the doubles are going to be annoying...one set had no oil slick chase, just another rat...

    The animals are really refreshing...bring something nice to the line...

    Some repaints are ingenious, others you really scratch your head over .. 20221101_191813.jpg 20221101_190908.jpg
    and you're going to need strong fingernails or a screwdriver/wedge to get some of those tiny parts loose to transform

    It's a give-and-take with this new setup. On the one hand, it's easier to get a full set since we're buying the whole assortment, and there's fewer doubles overall compared to previous series. On the other hand, it's going to be more difficult to get rid of your doubles because everyone will end up with the same ones.

    Sorry for the late reply, I think they’re both fairly nice. I’d prefer a little more paint on Fuzzy’s face, but they get the job done if you want to enact some tiny beast wars.

    lol the unfortunate tail transformation placement on the rat which already has a horrible tranform

    fyi for anyone who placed a preorder on amazon for the singles case, this was what tfrockmaster in the California thread got

    [​IMG]

    either that was a misfilled order or 23 more singles are coming, which means odds of getting the contents of a sealed case are very unlikely

    Kinda glad I went the pulse route with the rest of my botbots this time around... my vehicle sets were the only one I ordered from Amazon, and I figured they couldn't mess that up.
