Transformers BotBots Thread

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

Turns out its the easiest set to get a complete set of. You just have to buy the arcade renegade pack with the number 6 in the back and you get all 16 in one fell swoop. I just did that today :D Will write an article about it later.

These guys kinda remind me of the NAILS in the last IDW continuity.

So i looked on Ebay, and there is a single listing with Quackle, and he is $25 shipped. The sad part is I'm really tempted by this

How to Get all 16 Arcade Renegades Botbots in One Pack and Video Review of Group

Postby william-james88 » Tue Aug 13, 2019 10:04 pm

It is still unknown if Amazon.com will be the only one carrying the Botbots Arcade Renegades Surprise pack in the US (you can get it here now) but hopefully it comes to brick and mortar since this pack is very different from the rest. This mega set of 16 bots comes in 6 different packs. Althought they might look the same, since they have the same 8 bots exposed, there are 6 different variations of the blind bag bots. And, the worst part, only one of the 6 different blind assortments gives you the rest of the team while the other 5 blind assortments will give you repacks of series 1. Not redecos, repacks. So just the same toys you already have from series 1. There is a way to ensure that you get all of 16 different characters in one go. In the back, next to the chocolate bar with the cheat code written in his jacket, you can see a number from 1 to 6.

Here are examples, look at the tiny white number printed right before the purple background switches to turquoise.

Here are the contents of the blind portion of each of the numbers:

1: 24K-Bit, Laceface, S'up Dawg, Sheriff Sugarfeet, Skillz Punk, Spud Muffin, Sweet Cheat, Tangry Tart
2: Chilla Gorilla, Duderoni, The Fizz, Hawt Diggity, Papa Click, Pixelfin, Shredder Jack, Wrist Banned
3: 24K-Bit, Chilla Gorilla, Duderoni, Papa Click, Skillz Punk, Spud Muffin, Sweet Cheat, Wrist Banned
4: The Fizz, Hawt Diggity, Laceface, Pixelfin, S'up Dawg, Sheriff Sugarfeet, Shredder Jack, Tangry Tart
5: Chilla Gorilla, Duderoni, Laceface, Papa Click, Sheriff Sugarfeet, Skillz Punk, Sweet Cheat, Tangry Tart
6: 24K-Bit, The Fizz, Papa Click, Pixelfin, Sheriff Sugarfeet, Sweet Cheat, Tangry Tart, Wrist Banned

As you can see, number 6 is the only pack where you get all the arcade renegade bots without getting previously released bots from last year.

We also have a review of this set, which you can see below.

Niice. Although I wish I had known this last week; I spotted them on the shelf at my local Meijer and swiped the first one I saw. My son was a little miffed that we got four "old" figures, despite my insistence that getting twelve new figures (for the price of ten) is still pretty good.

For those interested in the SDCC botbots set, Hasbro Pulse will be having them up for order, limit 2, at $34.99 on September 4th (tentatively) with Pulse Premium members getting early access on September 3rd.

I got an email from Pulse yesterday as a Premium member with the link below showing when the various SDCC exclusives will be available.

Yeah Northern Ireland is part of the UK (for now) but Ireland itself isn't (lucky buggers) still, this could mean that Symths in the UK could get this soon (or have it already)

HOW did you get him to stand up???

I usually have to cheat and make it look like he's standing, when he's actually laying down.

No seriously, good job in getting Quackles to stand. ;)^
You know, as a kid I never made the connection between the G1 Sideswipe toy my brother passed down to me and the characters in the Beast Wars show on TV, until Michael Bay had Sideswipe as a Corvette.

I noticed he is a bit top heavy, but that's ok, he's tiny. And cute! And the way he stood is by tilting his legs back a smidge, that's all he needed!

Ah, tried that on mine, and it only seems to work if the duck head/face is rotated upside down. . . Certainly makes that bill stand out a bit more, and not in a PG way. . . :oops:
