    I miss Botbots. Pretty much all the stores around me stopped carrying them and because Hasbro insists on the randomness aspect, ordering online is a bust. Most retailers I've seen say you'll get "1 randomly selected 5-pack"? Hard pass. I really wish they'd just release set, carded collections. As others stated, they're fun little fidget toys but the doubles killed my desire.

    I don't think these vehicles will be random.

    Well alright.
    I'm not too enthused about the gradient colored ones, which will likely be like the gold bots (I'll seek them out anyway), but I'm always happy for more BotBots.

    Is that a slice of pizza that turns in to a race car?

    ...IS THAT A SLICE OF PIZZA THAT TURNS IN TO A RACE CAR?!

    No way. They'll almost certainly be packed with a blind figure though. That's been the new trend in these types of lines from other brands.

    they better sell little sets of a botbot and a vehicle, i wouldn't expect them to blindpack the vehicles.

    I absolutely loved the goofy absurdity of the BotBots line when they first launched, but the annoying almost-randomness and overlap of their collectability was such a frustrating pain, to say nothing of a bit costly for a completionist. Really wish they would have made the collection process much more streamlined and straight forward, but I just got tired of the constant hunt to fill the gaps. Still, glad to see Hasbro hasn't given up on these guys, yet.

    The thing about any toyline is if it find success there has to be an attempt to grow to keep it fresh. The best way to do that with Botbots is giving them a world to play around in. Things like vehicles and playsets are a great approach, especially if they stay with the theme of little converting objects modeled after unusual alt modes for a Transformer.

    Like, the first thing people wanted once Botbots really caught on was a Metroplex style playset that turned in to a mall. I get the feeling if these vehicles sell well, that'll be the next step. Especially since a Botbot scaled Metroplex wouldn't really be all that big, and could potentially come in assortments that fit the multiple factions.

    (EDIT: I just realized the new Ark may have room in the cockpit for a Botbot or two)
