    Does anyone have a pic of the checklist for the complete Series 6?

    Maybe more of a wiki-checklist? A fool-proof "gotta catch em' all" style in order?

    I know, even I had the play sets earlier than most - but I'm just not as good as others in the organizing field... I rely on the best. :lol 

    My botbots are literally organized by the wiki, and my soul is at ease. (Group down, then left to right, continue down) :D

    Yeah, but its not completed with recommended packs, solidified roster listings, etc.

    (Could be wrong, I'm pissed about the elections atm, :lol )

    Love ya man, thanks for the link. :thumb

    it's kind of moot though, isn't it? If the packages are only sold in pre-packed boxes and not individually, everyone is going to be buying and getting the exact same stuff unless you find a seller who breaks them up?

    Even if you could find all the sets sold individually at retail, all the multipacks contain at least one unique figure, so you’d have to get them all. The only ones you could skip are some of the individual blind packs.

    Me too... :( 
    (I ordered the 24 singles and the 2 vehicles pack, and only got the master carton of the 2 vehicles, with this one single pack instead of a master carton of them.)

    Yeah Amazon.... common sense people one glance at the price should tell you no one is going to pay $80 for a single. Not the 1st time it's happened either some people on twitter were complaining about the same issue too.

    I hope Amazon believe people when they complain. Maybe their parcels are weighed or something that can prove it.

    Is that a puddle of puke?
    The glove is fantastic. Kinda want it.

    Y’know, I wish they’d do a BotBots combiner. I can only imagine the hilarious possibilities.

    My HP order arrived yesterday. Not much more I can add that hasn't already been posted. LOL.

    • The lack of instructions many waves after they got rid of them is still unbelievable.
    • The tolerances are just as bad on some new molds as previously. So, for example the drink box thingy, the face comes off only with an edged object, but the tiny peg doesn’t fit anywhere when in bot mode?
    • The pizza vehicle feels like solid plastic and yet breakable at the same time. The "Series 7" typo on those tiny instructions seems like a mistake.
    • My singles 24 pack box came with A-X but those open style packages will never fly at retail. It was nice to see the letters printed prominently on the back, instead of hiding them like they used to.

    Is there any codes for the blind bags for Series 6?

    The Packaging says "75+ in Ruckus Rally" (Series 6), but that's false advertising as there are only 60 different Botbots on the catalogue (plus the two vehicles).
    And they aren't counting the duplicates, as previous series only quoted the number of unique figures in that series.
    I guess with all the changes they did for this new series 6, they left a few out at the last minute for a later series.

    Is anybody missing accessories? I think the below are supposed to have chopsticks and a spoon. I can't recall what the white thing went to. Does the egg have any accessory?







    Edit: blue gnome dude is missing something too.
    Edit 2: the fish is missing one fin and I found the spoon in the poop bag inside one of the two. Duplicate still missing. Now that I've gotten to messing around with them, man are the tolerances waaaaay too tight on a number. Never experienced it on any of the previous series, and I have every figure so far.

    Okay, this the pic I took when I got my shipment. I don't see the gnome's accessory or the poo bag's (nor how it would even fit).

    i'm going to have to doublecheck which ones come in those five packs so I don't open up a buncho single packs unnecessarily
