I can't remember the last time I saw a Transformers commercial on TV, but my kids saw a commercial for these on Nickelodeon while visiting their grandparents sometime this past weekend. Now my daughter wants them, and both my kids asked why I never mentioned these...(do I have to explain ;) ) . I really would prefer her not to waste her money on these, but then I remember - she is NOT a collector like I am, she will likely purchase only a couple, and then move on to something else. The obsessive need to *collect them all* is not what she is about, which is a good thing.

Ummm...they're not my thing. That's about the nicest way I can put it. If others have fun with them, then by all means, I just personally don't have any need for them.

Doesnt look like any of these use the rub feature that some of Wave 2 are supposed to have. Some of these look great. Not really tried to collect wave 1 or just the ones that stand out to me, im too lazy for the blind bag thing or buy set A, B, 9, C+ to get a full set.

My only caution is to not let a perfect opportunity for some daddy-daughter time go by if she is intent on getting a few of them anyway. It may even spark some interest in your other TF's on her end.

I get it, they are simple, with alt modes that nobody really needs toys of, and pretty much don't match or scale with anything in your collection.

They also happen to be some of the most fun I've had recently when playing around with my collection because my youngest wants to spend time with me. She makes us both put on some deodorant (Nobeeoh is her favorite). We play around together for a bit, followed by more deodorant. Then she starts doing her own thing for a while and so do I, then more deodorant. Then we start playing together again, and she gives all my combiners an application of deodorant. You get the idea.

Oh hey, there'swhere that soccer ball guy wandered off to! I'm guessing the baseball guy will resurface eventually too?

I don't think most of the BotBot tribes have any sort of official leader or command structure, nor does anything make me think the BotBots as a whole act as any sort of unified faction.
They race to bury everything except for what they find on the bottom.

I think the closest any official fiction gets to naming a leader is to say that Professor Wellread (the book from the Backpack Bunch) thinks he's the smartest and should therefore be in charge, but in reality the only book he's ever read is himself. There was also a suggestion (although I don't think it was from an official source) that Burgertron might have Primus Apotheosis. Either way, it's all for fun, and their social structures are much less formal than the "big" Transformers.

Anyway, very excited for these. My son is a big Grossery Gang fan, so the Spoiled Rottens will probably be on his want list. Gotta say, that broken can with the fish head poking out is... something else. Not a whole lot of Transformers that turn into carcasses.

As far as I'm aware, the only other one is Guiledart.
