Found Botbots Series 3 Arcade Renagades at the Okemos, Mi Meijer.
The question is: does it contain the proper 16 botbots that it is supposed to contain. There are multiple reports from different people that have bought this and it has series one figures in it (amazon) and also a couple with series 2 from other botbots fan sites. Has deadsled opened it yet to confirm it is correct?
Looks like a mix of 1 & 2
At least according to the publish materials from Hasbro you got the wrong figures. It is supposed to contain 12 Arcade Renegades.
"Purchasers will randomly receive 1 of 4 different Arcade Renegades Surprise 16-packs. Each 16-pack includes: 12 Arcade Renegades characters, and 4 random characters from other teams!"
It seems they got a large amount of the packs wrong. So, it appears we are going to need to buy multiple packs to complete the team. In the beginning they were marketing it as the complete team in one special packaging. If that is the case I may just stop with what I got as it seems like they are taking advantage at $30 a pop. TFcon is in October and there will probably be a Botbots trading room/area like the last two conventions to fill out the holes I have missing.
While I agree the way they did the arcade packs is disappointing, the pack pictured is actually completely accurate to the press materials you quoted. There are 12 Arcade Renegades (8 new molds, 4 redecos) and four random characters from other teams (the four series 1 guys). So while annoying, it’s not like somebody messed up.
Pack #6 has the entire team. The number is next to Sweet Cheat on the back of the box, so you'll know right away if you have the pack you want.

So what other stores will carry these?
I found this at TRU canada. $39.99 Canadian.
I got 12 new bots and 4 bots from series 1 in my pack. (the hot dog, nachos, headphones, and pizza)
Luucky! I'm jealous, this was my most wanted set. Congratulations!
