    These came out in Australia in December, and since they haven't been reported on this site as being out in America yet, here are some pics in case they don't get released in America at all (because these are multi-lingual packaging, not American packaging like previous packs).

    The third wave of single packs are...
    B008 - Megatron "Spin shot" (new - Decepticon)
    B009 - Twinstrike "Flip shot" (new - Predacon)
    B011 - Inferno "Blitz shot" (redeco Series 1 Sentinel Prime - Autobot)
    B012 - Autobot Hound "Blitz shot" (redeco Series 1 Ironhide - Autobot)
    SB003 - Skywarp "Flip shot" (superbot - translucent purple) (new - Decepticon)

    The interesting thing that will be seen in one photo below, is that Skystalker (originally called Stormrazor in the Taiwanese catalogue) was supposed to be in this wave as well, but for some reason was cancelled.
    And, we also learn that it is numbered B010, leaving B007 as Rom the Space Knight (the other missing BotShots number, and we knew the remaining name from the leaked Hasbro Database).

    These are cool! I appreciate you posting them. I miss botshots. I was recently wondering what happened to them. Wonder if that Soundwave will ever come out.

    I was hoping to pick up some more items from this line, seems like it was just canceled quietly in the background this Fall.

    I'd say these pictures are newsworthy though.

    Yeah, I don't think these have ever been seen before.

    Thanks Griff!

    I think I saw some of these (specifically the Twinstrike and Hound) on clearance at Walmart about a week or so ago. As I wasn't into them, I assumed they were just oversaturated shelfwarmers. Maybe I was wrong?

    December, eh. As always Southwest Sydney is behind...just found them at Coles last week :(  Neat little buggers though they kind of started looking all the same to me.

    These are hard to find somewhere? They're peg warming like nuts up here in Nova Scotia.

    There were some of those Dragon sets that made it to tjmaxx and such, I have a few of the earlierI want to unload if anyone needs them.

    I took the punch sticker things off, the line was getting so neat as well.

    Those also came out in our country last December, already on clearance. I regret not getting them.
