    I'm interested in this idea. I think this is something Transformers has needed for a long time. To me this is like the Beast Wars, everyone hated it at the time but now everyone loves Beast Wars. So I think given time for Bot Bots to tell it's story which I hope it has I think it will get fans to think twice about.

    Also something to point out is no Autobot or Decepticon symbols.

    My kid was into Grossery Gang for all of 8 months... I can see this approach being a \"hook them younger\" tactic.  
    At a glance I have to claim: doughnut guy specifically has pink frosting and sprinkles? His name is Hole-mer!
    \"Mmmmm... forbidden doughnut...\"

    My kid said That these are going to look so incredibly stupid...and that she will need
    to get some.
    :lol :

    These will fit in so nicely with her Shopkins collection.

    I'm gonna get me some.

    Playsets Hasbro. Give us Playsets with these. And not the shitty wall only playsets you give My Little Pony blindbags.

    I figured this was in the works, and I’m glad that I didn’t have to google Sach Baron Cohen’s “OMG Wizboy” to be reminded of what those figures are called. And, for what it’s worth, I prefer Chris Morris.

    I also would prefer that these figures actually transform, or at least have some use with 3mm or 5mm ports and pegs.

    Also funny that G.I. Joe is listed as emerging.

    That, and that Hasbro knows 7/11 exists but somehow there aren’t 7/11 themed Transformers that I’ve found, but I did see some Beanie Babies have returned to my local convenience emporium. :p 

    Granted, we’ll likely not get anything as nifty as some of the 7/11 themed Gundam goods, but that would be ideal.

    Fans are doing themselves a disservice if haven’t thrown some quarters at an OrbBot on the way out the grocery store, for example.

    I don’t think this is a derailment since I totally agree that these miniatures are a part of a repetition in (accelerating) circumstances in the last few decades.

    Personally, I’d like a Confecticus formed from the Combatibuns! ^.^

    Or, for example, make new faction mats for Stonemaier Games’ Scythe. :D

    I said it before, Transformers Shopkins, which actually make perfect sense as collectibles are the hottest toy segment at the moment and this has great boy/girl cross appeal.

    I'm all in if these things transform.

    There was the Japan exclusive MP-711 Optimus Prime (G1)/toys - Transformers Wiki

    Truly sorry to hear that you two aren't in the target demographic of 5-8 year olds and wanted BOTBOTS: Buckets of blood

    Truly surprised it took this long for someone on this thread to attack others for having a negative opinion on the subject matter.

    Shopkins Transformers!

    i had kind of ruled these botbots out in my mind because having thought about them \"blind boxes\" should realy be avoided for ones own sanity. Give me a chance with blind bags vs very little chance with blind boxes. 

    But... They\'re kind of cool, there might be something there. I might bite on one or two or not.

    Also it looks like we see the Bot Bots version of Megatron in this image, right in the front it's Mugatron.

    This would be a great opportunity to bring back some of the "joke" Transformers from Robo-Capers.

    I would be okay with those characters coming back. But also they can use Toaster & Teaspoon in this as well.
