    Wave 3 is orange.

    Going by color wheel theory, I predict a hypothetical wave 5 and 6 will be yellow and purple, respectively. :)

    Thanks a ton for your help! You got everyone the first poster found-- whatever 18 is, it's impossible to figure out until someone else finds No. 18.

    Woah, woah, woah, just realized something.

    If the checklist is now TWO-sided, where are the instructions for the Botbot in the pack? @Hotconvoy do they have two pieces of paper in those balls now?

    Thanks for the info. That... does not bode well for the future possibility of chase or randomized figures...

    Plus it might just confuse younger kids...

    In the US it's pretty much only Wal-Mart that does that, but these are being found at Target and they hang them on metal rods.

    I love the boxes for the art, especially because alt modes are included but unless you order a full case, it's really hit or miss trying to find one in a store, let alone one that isn't cut up.

    The UK stores always have them on shelves in the card display (a display which is slightly different to the Hasbro USA one) I've only seen one store hang them up, but they put them with the Transformers and not downstairs with the blind bag - (if they'd been smart they'd have ordered double and put them in both places).

    Series 1 was reasonably easy to find for a while & Series 3 is very common in the UK now - series 2 is almost impossible to find more than the odd one... so much so I'm likely going to have to go through the hassle of importing the ones I need from America (though I was able to find the Blind pack series 2 and the odd 5 pack the 8 Packs just didn't really show up in big numbers) I would guess that was because there was stll some Series 1 in the system at that point and by the time they were looking to reorder Series 3 was out - and I don't think Hasbro imported much of it - there is a small hope that the Green bubbles might show up in low end stores though - as they do sell some similar things like Shopkins quite often.


    Now what I found interesting is that ARGOS in the Uk is reducing some of their Cyberverse line and all their Botbots - suggesting that they want to get rid of both in preparation for the new products. so they should likely have series 4 in for January (though if they are bright enough to change the catalogue images is a whole other question).

    P.s.

    I guess they wanted to make them harder to open to prevent theft - but thieves can still shove a finger in the gap at the base of the bubble and tear the whole face of the card clean off, makes it rather hard to open the packets cleanly though for those who wanted to keep the packets in something approaching decent condition.

    According to the Wiki page, Eye-Goon is the missing one on the list. If anyone can verify that, it would be be great.

    I wonder if the Golden Videogame Controller is a purposeful reference to Nintendo doing Gold Controllers every so often ?

    You the man!

    Out of curiosity, what are your thoughts on the new molds? Any stand-outs?

    I meant the usual picture where the botbots are running around in the mall, which is usually on the other side of the checklist.

    How would the wiki know? I have not seen any other news site post about these before... So not sure where they would get the info from.
    Btw, thanks to the OP for the codes. It seems one of the "Lucky Drawn" gold ones can be easily found via the code this way.

    In Hungary we only had Wave 1 in full, then Müllers started getting Wave 2 singlepacks a few months ago, but we have yet to see any 5/8packs. Oddly, we did get Arcade Renegades last month, as well.

    Is the macaron a fish or a bat?

    The pinata is cute but I don't like the colors.

    I like the handheld.

    The ice cream cone clown is awful.

    I was joking when I said Chef Nada was a Cornish Pastie - it turns out I was actually kinda right (by a fluke of fate) as supposedly The Cornish Miner took the idea with them to Mexico and Peru and it caught on and it's now very popular and known as 'paste' (I guess that isn't said like Tooth Paste) so that is what Chef Nada likely is.

    Another fun point is the Movie Chef uses the Cubaba Sandwich as a plot point.

    So two points I have to wonder is why would there be a Mexican food chain called ""Nada"" & does that have anything to do with Chef nada's name - or is it saying they like to swim or are Chef of Nothing.

    I'm a bit puzzled that the context of that one is a bit lost on me.
