I've seen Bot Shots in stores and for what they are they're certainly not cheap. So with that in mind are they really aimed at kids, or are they just a sneaky way to keep the 30yr olds collecting.
And be honest now - none of you are actually using them as game pieces are you? Nobody actually uses the silly slamming-together functionality for entertainment.
Bot Shots are great! They're very inexpensive for what they are. Any figure that's under $4 nowadays is pretty cheap, plus if you buy them at the discount chains like Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshalls you can get the 3 packs for around $5 or $6.
My daughter is 3 and loves these ... so do all of her cousins that are 5 or under. They're simple to play with and easy for little kids to transform. They don't play the game with them, but they sure have fun bashing them into things or other Bot Shots.
Bot Shots at the retail stores in the Chicago area fly off the shelves it seems. They're a very popular item. I've sold at least 50 or more of the individual figures via Seibertron.com's eBay store from the cases that I get from BBTS that have duplicates.
