    Found on the Australian Hasbro product page, a new set of four 5-packs for Botbots, called the Bakery Bytes, which are noted as being part of series 1... but series 1 was only supposed to be 61 figures... so these could be the first of series 2, as it notes that there are Lawn League 8-packs coming out with these as well.
    Then again, the wording of the product description suggests that these two teams could be separate exclusive teams, that may not be part of the regular 190+ figures announced on the call-out sheets.
    It just seems a bit odd that these four 5-packs only have Botbots from the two new teams, unlike Series 1 5-packs having Botbots from all eight teams. It is also odd that all four packs contain the same two figures (the two new molds that appear to have color change paint), while all of the other figures that we can see are redecos, and some of them are spread across 2 or 3 packs as well, leaving us with a very small number of different figures in these four packs. Even if all four mystery figures are different, there are only eleven different figures from the twenty, which leaves you with a lot of duplicates to collect the set.

    The color change feature is likely to be the patch of paint on the two new molds (the side of the mixing bowl, and the front of the rolling pin)... which is probably why they are in all four packs, to make the most of their limited release (if these are limited).

    Quoted from the product page...

    Each Bakery Bytes pack includes 5 figures from 2 exclusive teams: 3 from the Bakery Bytes and 2 from the Lawn League! 2 of the included Bakery Bytes characters have color change features. Just rub the figure to reveal the hidden color! Also look for Lawn League 8-packs (sold separately, subject to availability).
    • Includes 5 figures and instructions/cross-sell sheet.

    The bot on the bottom left corner of the package looks new, a watering can maybe? Probably one of the Lost Bots
    Edit: looks like repaints of the book and hot chocolate bots too.

    Bought on sight.

    Clever reuse of Duderoni. Love the face on the stand mixer.

    So is the pie guy a cannibal? Because at first I thought he/she had freckles, but I think they are bits of crumbs?

    Yeah, hopefully there are a few different Lost Bots and not the same one in all 4 packs

    The pack selection here is questionable. Three of the four packs have a unique character, but to get them you have to get triplets of two others. Series 1 is pretty bad with forced duplicates, but this is ridiculous, if there are not other packs in the mix here.

    The blind packed figures in the series 1 multipacks were from a tribe of Botbots called Lost Bots. Although these might just members of the new teams.

    so i love that there's new characters and i think it's cool that the older molds have new faces and changes to them (like how the pizza is now a pie)

    so getting a remold isn't a bad thing. i'm always up for more botbots

    Well that's certainly one way to mix things up.

    Love the usage of the color change feature too.

    New BotBots from out of nowhere, also these ones didn't get leaked on Amazon.

    I just realized there's two new molds in this wave.

    P.S. A stand mixer and a rolling pin.

    There's a watering can guy at the bottom of the package, there's a cup of sugar cube guy at top on the mixer, and there's an orange guy next to the fries at the top of the package.

    Damn, tempted by the pie redeco of Duderoni, but I'd rather get the Cuddletooth redeco than another Sudsbeard. And I don't have a Stinkosaurus Rex so that'd be another new figure for me.

    Already have nearly thirty of these things, I feel like fifty is just around the corner.
