    Yes. Yes they do. As evidenced already by Nope Soap, Barf Bag, and Poo-Shoo.

    Gotta compete with those Grossery Gangs somehow!

    Huh. Was not expecting more Unboxing sets since all of Series 5 has already been accounted for. I’m curious to see the assortment breakdown for these.

    I’ll likely get all of these anyway. Pirate treasure chest? Mine. It’ll go great with the Lego Creator pirate ship that’s coming out this year. Toilet bowl? Also mine. Give me more location-themed sets like this and I’ll be happy.

    Well, we also see a golden pineapple and a golden teddy bear on the art for the sets. 

    Now, if series 4 could actually be found near me, I\'d be a lot happier and a little less nervous/irritated that these are coming out so quickly...

    I find it amusing. Come on a shoe transformer with brown splotches called Poo Shoo. That is chuckle worthy. A toilet transformer? I love it. I smile at a toilet packaging with brown balls you use a suction cup to plunge out. I'm amused.

    Don't forget - these are primarily marketed towards kids. I have a 6, 8, and a 10 year old that are obsessed with fart and poop jokes. Toilet humor is going to be the case when it comes to these. It is what it is.

    Actually it's 6 Botbots-- there's 5 "regular" Botbots and 1 gold Botbot, just like with the Gumball Machine/Claw Game packs. I'm not saying that makes it such an amazing value, just a slight correction there.

    Pretty certain these are a sneak peek of Series 6.

    Some Series 5 leaked out because of a Hasbro screwup-- the official release date for Series 5 is April 1st, and the official release date for Series 6 is August 1st, which fits how Series 2 and 3 were released last year. Don't worry, you still have time.

    I'm sorry man, but you're like the 15% of the population that doesn't like poop/fart jokes. And that's a high estimation TBH.

    Six toy pods and four sticker pods, like with Series 4.

    The press release with the photos above says series 6. Series 5 are the yellow pods that were just released. Don't know yet what the pod color is for series 6 (hopefully it isn't brown).

    There is just so much toilet & poo toys in stores now, it's like the toy companies are all racing to the bottom to compete for a ongoing market that isn't really there, because one or two will be bought as an immature novelty item, but what rational kid or parent wants to have a large collection of poo-related toys. Toilet humor is one thing because it is a short lived laugh at something, but having a collection of poo-related toys is a completely different thing.
    The trend is more than disturbing, particularly when you have iconic characters as defecating toys, SEVERAL squeeze toys (like stress balls) of poo shapes and animals with squeeze-out-the-poo gimmicks at a major department store near me... while ToysRUs in HK had on the shelf a large series of poo character toys. These are toys that are intended to be mass collected by kids, not just one off humor purchases... which should have people worried if a kid is wanting to buy these instead of an action figure, a lego set, or a computer game.

    Oh, I get something like that, an entire line related to the stuff is waaaay overkill and like telling the same joke over and over again. But I think a few Botbots here and there whose gimmick is "gross-out" isn't bad.

    Well you’re in luck because there definitely appears to be one based on shit.

    Don’t know what it’s name is but for now, I dub thee Floater.

    No cats yet, but there are dogs (Drippy Pup the sippy cup, Snuggle Puggle the neck pillow) and owls (Blurray Murray, Gol-D; granted they're both the same mold, 3-D glasses).

    As has become tradition for what will be its third year running, we’ll be chasing down more new Botbots during Holiday time! Series seven, in this case.
    Right, Beastbot?
    .... B-Beastbot? Right?

    From your lips to God's ears.

    Though I'm taking the release of more special packs for Series 6 as a slightly positive sign.
