    I love pew pew...he has got to be repainted into megatron because he's got all the detailing of the Walther alt mode...juice box is pretty nice but wish the faceplate wasn't a shield piece...the wizard doll becomes a wizard, different gender apparently...it's been so long I don't even remember if the burger and fries are exactly the same as the original ones or new molds 20221124_073953.jpg
    The vehicles are cool but my biggest gripe is the botbots cannot sit! They have no pegs so they can barely stand in the seats to begin with...good idea but not executed so well given the limitations of how the drivers ride in them 20221123_211746.jpg

    I have seen a botbot for retail for years.
    Did they move it to a different section or something?

    They're just repaints unfortunately. Although this is an easy way to get Burgertron if your late to the game so I guess sort of a win.

    Hasbro missed a golden opportunity to call him Kremzitron.

    The tf wiki states with Outa Controller that something not stated in the instructions come off to be used like a skateboard like what you see on the illustration on the back of the package? I've yet to figure that out though?

    yes there is a snowboard like piece that comes off the back of the controller...it has a peg on it but what use is it if the botbots don't have holes in their feet?

    ahem, I take it back...some do have holes!

    the wizard in the new vehicles set has holes...of course they do not fit the peg

    too bad the anchovy missile on the pizza-car doesn't come out (that I am aware of)

    Oh! That thing is meant to come off? For some reason I thought it was meant to help slide the ramp thing out when you transformed the controller into "ship" mode if thats what we wanna call it.

    Ya, ironically one of the few things in the new botbot line that you don't have to break your fingernail to pry out <_<

    anyone who has preorders that haven't been filled by amazon (or others) might want to check out pulse's seasons of savings...just got the 5packs there and cancelled my amazon preorder

    Question. Is the clear poop bag character supposed to come with a scoop? I see a slight on top of the head but there is nothing in the assortment I got that can fit it. I checked each paper wrapping and all.

    So I saw some ppl had problems with their orders from amazon. how was the return process? did amazon easily refund or exchange the orders? Or were they strict about the packs being opened and stuff?

    Got the last of wave 6 in...
    20221210_101852.jpg
    The tolerance issue persists with many of the new molds...the eggo waffle was particularly difficult to get his head out...the eggs are a unique transformation marred only by difficult to slide legs...bacon has a neat storage place for his accessory...Autobot insignia is thankfully problem-free...too bad it isn't more widely available...what is that binocular-looking plane thing? making a joystick out of the perfume bottle was ingenious...the oilslick tv is possibly the best reuse for this chase gimmick...the grapes are still atrocious...the turkey has double drumstick blasters! Pretty neat... 20221210_103423.jpg
    the mouse is simple...thought the wheel dial might come out but apparently not...the drone/rocketship/plane is weirdly asymmetrical...I thought my broccoli was missing a piece but the two halves do indeed close up and hide the body...how many times has the hockey puck mold been reused? (its been an alexa, a puck, and I want to say at least three other things)...the watermelon is simple and elegant...the nachos redeco is nothing new...desktop computer recolor is taking cues from the new molds and its second face screen was very tight...couldn't get it to move without using a screwdriver...
