Oh wow, straight to Marshall's huh? Got 'em on HTS months ago and was surprised they never showed up at mass retail.
Listen to me ramble about robots on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast.
Every once in a blue moon I write stuff about things on my blog.
I have a lot of Transformers, check them out on my shmax.com page.
Looking for Grandus Radar Dishes, Micromaster Spinner, and Star Saber's Rifle. PM me if you have these for sale!

Weapon: Requiem Blaster
Grabbed my Air force pack the other day at TJMaxx as well.
With no reveals at Botcon, it looks like this will be the last gasp for the majority of this line.

Thanks to our friend on facebook Mark Shattereduniverse Prime we can report the second wave of Transformers Bot Shot five packs are now showing up at retail. This wave features the Decepticon Fire Assault Team pictured below and the Autobot Air Force. The set was purchased at the discount retailer Ross.

This is how I read the situation too. There was also nothing new said about Kre-O. There were still the upcoming products in the cases. Just felt like there was no hype and no caring about continuing either line. Not my bag anyway but I hate them latching onto multiple flash in the pan ideas and abandoning them every couple years. If that's where the money is, that just plain sucks.

Who are these guys? Are they just repaints, like "Magma Megatron" and "Cyberfire Powerglide" or whatnot, or are they supposed to be new/different characters? If they're new characters I'd be interested in looking for them.

Wave 2 first sighted at Ross, eh? :lol:

Ross and Marshall's is where I go to find hard to find items that I missed at major retail OR from time to time you can come across European and Canadian stuff we never got here stateside :grin:

Anyway's I bought ONE Bot Shot and that was Prime with his "trailer", and that was for mere cuteness and novelty sakes. Personally, I wish Bot Shots would go away... SOOOooo tired of them taking up shelf space instead of Deluxes and Voyagers. I KNOW someone is going to say something like "but that's what sells to kids," but I would argue that's not the case cause all those Bot Shot pegs are always filled with the same junk I saw on my last visit.

Bot Shots, hasta la vista...the sooner the better.

The Decepticon ones are older characters, while the Autobots are new characters in the line. Kinda the reversal of wave 1 with Polar Assault and Stunticons.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

We never even got the the wave with the Stunticons here in the UK. The last Botshot stuff we got was the OP and BB that come with launcher trailer thing and the blue blocks.
Did these come out in the states before or after the Stunticon set came out?

The autobots are repaints too, just "new guys". They should combine, That's the only reason I would ever buy those pieces of crap.
If they just stopped with the botshots we could've seen almost twice as much in the beast hunters line *imagines beast hunters x2*

I saw these a week or so ago in my ToysRus. Recently a lot of stuff has been arriving there early. Platinum Magnus, those enormous Optimus and Bumblebee statues, and these Botshots too
