We have the same taste, those are the oens I wanted most too, along with Sudsbeard. My advice is to get the multipack with sudsbeard since he is unique and thus it would be the best way to avoid duplicates later.

So they are found with the rest of the Transformers not with all the other random toys with blind packages?

Depends where you are located and which stores. In Toysrus Canada, they are with the Transformers for now, but at Walmart in US they are in the stocking stuffer boxes.

I completely forgot about Sudsbeard! He's another one I definitely need to get.

I ordered 1 of each (Sugar Shock, Toilet Troop and Techie Team) of the 5 packs and a Jock Squad 8-pack from Amazon and lucked out and got all 4 of those mentioned above. The donut and unicorn are in one of the 5 packs as well as one of the 8 packs, so I'd see which one you like the rest of the assortment from and go for that in store. The penguin comes in the 5-pack with Sudsbeard, so you should be covered there.

I ended up with duplicates of the pencil and football, which I'm okay with. I may keep or trade them of give them to a family friend with youngsters.

Found this little mech suit at my local thrift store. Worth the $0.52 I paid for it. Now Coco really is crazy.

A quick tip on how to avoid duplicates

Hey fellow collectors. I stumbled onto a tip that could save us a few buck by avoiding duplicate blind bags/boxes. Anyo else tried it?

That's great to know. I was sure I wasn't the only one who figured it out but just in case there were others I wanted to make sure. A penny saved...and all that.

BotBots 5-packs showing up at Big Lots

Postby Emerje » Fri Jan 04, 2019 12:45 am

Motto: "*Shrug*"
Weapon: Saw-Edged Pincer
Normally Big Lots is a good place to look for older toys and potato chips from brands you've never heard of, but look at this, something new! Thanks to a sighting by our very own xRotorstormx of the Twincast Podcast crew we have news of the BotBots 5-packs showing up at Big Lots. Priced at $10 and appearing before most major retailers the 5-packs feature four visible figures and one secret figure under the red bubble, similar to the single figures that started showing up during the holidays.

Have you found these at any other retailers? Be sure to pass your sightings on to the news crew here and post them in the Energon Pub below.

Big Lots used to have the coolest TF KOs about 17-12 years ago, until Hasbro cracked down on the Operation Combination/upscaled Cybertron Legends KOs, kiboshing the greatest army-builder ever knocked off: red and yellow Tetra-seekers in scale with Titanium. Perhaps not that relevant, but a sore spot for me given the news about Hasbro's legal victory in China, and the fact that in exchange, we hardly got jack for official TFs in Big Lots.

But now, FINALLY, I have reason to go there again, so...yay.

Those Big Lots KOs were about the only KOs I'd tolerate since they're mostly garbage and aren't intended to replace or substitute official products the way "G1 reissue" KOs and OSKOs are. Most of the Big Lots KOs I have I already have the original and only buy them as novelties for their bright colors and weird dumbed down transformations.

I'll be at Big Lots next week, hope to find some of BotBots then.

Nobeeoh is my daughters favorite. She and I were down in the basement on Saturday playing with our collection of BotBots and TF's. Everyone we were playing with had to get an application of deodorant including my daughter and myself. My daughter was cackling so loud my wife came down to see what was so funny, and immediately got her own application of deodorant.

New Transformers BotBots Revealed along with New Colour Change Gimmick

Postby william-james88 » Sun Jan 13, 2019 1:11 pm

So we knew the new year would bring about more Botbots, but that was all we knew, until now. Hasbro has updated their Australian site to include 4 new 5 packs which include new Botbots. 2 of those are new molds, and include a rolling pin and mixer. Both of those feature the colour change gimmick, which may be similar to the good old rub stamp effect. Both of these new molds are included in each of the 5 packs. The rest of the packs vary between redecos of previous Botbots including the soap dispensor in white and the pizza bot turned into a pie bot (the later works really well as a redeco). The packaging hints at even more redecos such as a white version of the book Botbot.

You can find all the images below which are followed by a full product description from the Hasbro site.
