    Found these two different packs at Target today, not sure if this is news or not, so mods feel free to remove if needed (didn’t find anything in search)

    I could have sworn someone had posted pictures of them inside a store near xmas eve or slightly before in the botbots thread, or was that an overseas store sighting?

    Are the contents for these boxes randomized or is it always the same results?

    Interesting to see these at Target when the Arcade Renegades were never stocked there. Might get Claw Machine #2 and Gumball Machine #1. I just hope that these have codes somewhere on the box to tell them apart (like the number under Sweet Cheat on the back of the Arcade Renegades box).

    It's a bit confusing, but no, it's not. Game Older is the redeco of the Skillz Punk game cartridge from Series 1, part of the "Retro Replays" team. He's available both in one of these special packs and in a single pack.

    Game Golder is the gold redeco of Game Over that you're thinking about. It is the only Winners' Circle Series 4 Botbot not accounted for as of yet, which means it will be in 1 of the 8-pack blind bubbles. Since those have yet to come out, we don't know which one.

    You won't need codes; look at the ones in the transparent bubbles and you'll be able to tell which pack is which. For example, the packages pictured above are the two you want (one contains the Cobbler i.e. Claw Machine #2, and the other contains Crumbly Yumbly i.e. Gumball #1).

    I ordered them from Amazon sadly before knowing the \"10 surprise\" did not mean 10  Botbots... \'cause that would have been a great deal.

    How do you tell the two variants of each set apart? Is the set of colored balls in each one consistent so you can use that to ID, or is there a code # on the package like the blind bags and Arcade Renegades?
