I want the cat and the guniea pig,and hopefully a second season on Netflix.
Lemme guess distribution is going to be spotty and I'll never enjoy a full set?
There is a character who turns into a literal pile of shit.
Wait botbots still exist? I\'ve been wanting these but I thought they were discontinued because I haven\'t seen them for months
His name is Loose Deuce, according to the packaging.
I was just lamenting yesterday how we had to go through a whole year or more without any Botbots... despite the show being out too.
It seems they are finally putting ONLY characters belonging to a team into each set, or at least the Custodial Crew (Toilet Troop) looks like it!
Cop-bucket (what was his name?) and dungarees looks awesome.
Where is Waldo, that little piece of shit? (I mean, that design has got to be on purpose...)
They announced this series in like, 2022 february, but only to appear in 2023 february. Hasbropulse has preorders too.
I....don't think I need to discover what the blue wedge of cheese actually is that's in the Custodial Crew set...
/yes I know he could be a sponge
//I'm thinking urinal cake though...
I just want Space Case to be made.
Hasbro doing these little guys dirty, especially the little doodoo guy.
its a repaint of series 4 windbag
Listen here Hasbro.
I've put up with a lot of nonsense from you in the past couple years or so, but you can't just introduce to me a little poopoo transformer and NOT release it.
Huh? These are in stock at multiple online retailers. Entertainment Earth and BBTS are charging people now.
Oh, I was mostly being silly with that last post. D:
Custodial Crew: Loose Deuce (poop), Unhandy (cleaning glove), Bobby Bluejean (overalls), Vomit Comet (vomit), Sergeant Scrubforce (mop & bucket), Caution (The caution sign is literally just called caution? Okaay....), Roboclean (vacuum cleaner), Clean Dive? (toilet scubber?), Grunge Plunge (plunger), Lady Loofah (I'm guessing the blue sponge), Granny Giggleclean (feather duster), [Something]well (by process of elimination, the spray bottle)
Pet Mob: Aunt Kitty (that horrifying cat/grandma thing), Crickets... (cricket-- and yes, the ellipsis is part of the name), So Humerus (dog bone), Coach Huskey (Husky), Rattle Tail (rat), Overcoiled (snake), Fuzzy Fearless (hamster, I'm assuming), Poo-tricia Pickup (dog poop sack), Chow Wow (bowl of dog chow), Quacked Up (duck), Feathers, Uncaged (caged bird), Bully Bulldog (by process of elimination the pet watch, I'm guessing it's supposed to be a fitbit that "bullies" you), Anty Farmwell (Ant farm)
Hmm. There's a name missing for the Custodial crew, the shaver. Either that or the spray bottle isn't [Something]well and it's the shaver. One's missing, though, that's for sure.
Oh gotcha, I know there's been a bit of confusion for those that don't follow Botbots closely. There's been a huge gap in releases and 1 version of a series 6 was actually cancelled.
There was going to be a Series 6 in 2020, but that seems to have been cancelled to make way for a new, completely different Series 6 that’s tied to the Netflix show.
Hysterically they apparently haven't even altered any of the previous figures to mirror their Netflix counterparts to boot. Burgerbot looks like a weird Soundwave still.
I don't think it was cancelled for because it was tied to the Netflix show-- the cancelled Series 6 isn't really tied to the Netflix show anymore than this Series 6, minus the re-naming of the Toilet Troop to the Custodial Crew. Even the couple of toys in this Series 6 that appeared in the show only look peripherally, if that, like how they look in the show (see Vomit Comet for a COMPLETE makeover). Rather, I think the initial Series 6 were changed because A. The first, canceled Series 6 was very likely planned to be the last series of Botbots. Nearly that entire wave were redecoes, there wasn't nearly the redeco-to-new-mold ratio we'd seen in previous Series. That wouldn't have made sense with the re-launch of the line, to stuff it full of repaints. Also, B. A lot of the original Series 6 were the gold "Winner's Circle" redecoes, which of course make no sense now that we've got a new theme for the year(?). Thus it made sense to take some of the ideas (like the Pet Mob) and do it over, with more new molds, no continuation of lesser teams since it's been a while, and now with the Oil Slicks in place of the Winners' Circle.
Maaaaaannn... now all I want is botbots-styled soundwave and blaster, all toon'd out and shit.
Botbots g1 toon'd megatron... they all can be from the 'pawn stars' league.
Can I drop the mic for the first time in my tfw career?
Okay, so it seems even Amazon shows S6 as in stock... but they have no 8-pack listings. Just a 26 and 32-pack... I am surprised how that'd work? Or is the 32-pack just 4 8-packs and the 26 pack are the singles? I wish the listings would show the boxes.
Wasn't there some listings for larger more articulated show-style Botbots somewhere?
Separate names with a comma.
