    I will have them, no matter the cost...

    Oh hey, it looks like the gold ones replaced the lost bots. Good to know.

    After a pretty meh Series 2/3, some of these are way more in my ballpark design-wise! Getting some serious Z-bots vibes from quite a few of these. I smell some impulse buys if I ever find them on shelves.

    Wow, THIS many? The checklist is now two pages? Is there a drawing of the mall even yet?
    Seems some of the Bakery Bytes got repainted into the Home Rangers... so we can still get these molds even if the S1 versions are super rare.
    Checked but bios are not yet up on the official page.
    The new molds are awesome. A top hat that turns into a rabbit? Deck of cards? Dentures? Whoopie cushion! A crystal ball that turns into a seer in a turban on a flying carpet. :D 
    The owl-3D glasses and camera aside, the Movie Moguls are all repaints sadly. Love the Critically Complained (instead of Acclaimed) name.
    Retro Replays also reuses some molds, but maaaan so many awesome ones. That tape player looks like the one I used for my ZX Spectrum! And an old walkie-talkie! Pop'n Lock is like a mini Blaster. What the heck are Loadoutsky and Snorg the Conquerer though?
    New Season's Greeters are nice, Lawn League potted plant repaint, an Easter egg, rocket, pinyata!
    Huh Sugar Shocks still continues, 4th wave! Guess because there are sooo many sweets. Cookie, cake slice, smores, bonbon... but what is Flying Flutters? I don't know many sweets that are purple, nor do I see what the bot mode is, a bat?
    Los Deliciosos seems a bit like a subgroup of the Greaser Gang, since they already had tacos and a hot sauce among them, but ah well. I admit I am not familiar with all of these foods, is Lunchador not a taco same as the old mold just with a bow? And what is King Cubano? And Chef Nada is just a the burrito dough folded in two? Corn'Cobb is awesome. :) 
    Wilderness Troop - seems more like a sub-group of Shed Heads, but nice to have some hiking gear! Binoculars - have not seen a transforming one since the 1980s Convertors guy! Hatchet too. Lantern is not really that much of a transformation. And what is Miss Mixed?
    Fresh Squeezes - just repaints, plus a banana monkey. So I guess the avocado is a pear now?
    Science Alliance is great! I wanted some microscopes since Scalpel! The flask is amazing. :)  And I guess tripod guy is a telescope!
    Home Rangers - love these the most maybe, a couch, iron, pressure cooker... so innovative!

    Wow. I never saw wave 3 in my area. Just ordered everything online. I’m guessing I’ll have to do the same here.

    2 was green-barely ever saw these
    3 was what color?
    4 is blue.
    Doesnt help that these were all deleted from my Local Walmart. And I dont think they're really even on the website? Do any online retailers carry them?

    First I'm surprised there's no book mold. Second do we have any word on when these are supposed to come out? January 2020?

    The Twitter bio reads that he's in the US, so apparently are out now.

    If these were all Blind Packs, then that makes sense. Those were the first to hit retail last year too.
