    I’ve only seen the 6-packs and 8-packs myself. Still waiting for everything else to show up.

    I saw the Gumball Machine/Claw Packs in stores once, but that's it.

    According to some retailers, someone at Hasbro royally screwed up and some Series 5 got out early, when they were only supposed to be shipping out Series 4. This would explain why they've showed up roughly 2 months earlier than expected, why Entertainment Earth has Series 5 labeled as Series 4 and visa versa, and why my preorders for BOTH a case of Series 4 8-packs and a case of Series 5 8-packs were fulfilled at the same time.

    I wouldn't worry that much yet, I think we'll still see a fair amount of Series 4 yet before everyone switches over to Series 5.

    Thanks! Do post some close-ups of the new bots please. The back art looks awesome. Snuggle Puggle is adorable on that drawing!

    I just want that little coffee maker dinosaur... Series 2 was pretty prevalent around me, but that one was ALWAYS gone by the time I got there...

    Is there a picture of the character list and/or an easy way to ID who's who? I'm not great at matching names to the actual Bot in package.
