They're here! BotBots fans in the US can now rejoice as series 2 has begun trickling in. Fellow Seibertronian Terrsolpix has brought us our first sighting of a wave 2 5 pack found at Target in Hillsdale, San Jose, California for $9.99. These are scheduled for a 4/1/2019 release so they appear to be right on target for retail saturation.

I think the sheet music on Grampiano's piano mode becoming his hat in robot mode is amazing.

Yesterday, we received a special package from Hasbro. The package was a promo box full of Transformers BotBots Series 2 products, which included 24 single packs and 8 eight-packs. In addition to the figures, there was a large checklist for Series 2 with artwork of each BotBots group on the other side. Series 2 introduces to three new teams: Swag Stylers, Music Mob and Spoiled Rottens.

Check out images of the promo box, plus images of the various 8 packs and more by clicking on any of the images below, which will take you to the full gallery. In case you missed our gallery of Transformers BotBots Series 1 promo box, please check out that gallery here.

The Botbots are spawning out of control! Earlier today, Seibertron showcased the entirety of the Wave 2 Botbots, and it seems as though the Wave 2 display was only the beginning of the Botbot news!

The news we bring to you now is that of a Botbots Sticker book, which is found on Amazon.com. The book is priced at $9.99 and is said to contain over 500 stickers of our beloved Botbots! It also is supposed to contain some information on the 11 different Botbot tribes with 123 different Botbots included. You can check out the cover below, and read the description as well.

The sticker sheet is set to arrive September 24, 2019.

When ENERGON hits the mall, all the things inside become more than meets the eye! Candy treats, sports equipment, electronics, food, school supplies, and more come to life as little TRANSFORMERS robots--the BOTBOTS! This Official Sticker Book contains everything you need to know about 11 different BOTBOTS tribes and 123 different BOTBOTS--plus more than 500 stickers!!! This book is a must-have for 6 to 9 year old fans and collectors of the TRANSFORMERS BOTBOTS toys!

I'm an adult and I'm growing obsessed with these. I don't know if this is something I should be concerned about or not.

Also, one of them is named "Steve from Accounting". That is amazing.

Looks like they accidentally used Lolly Licks's stock photography for Lolly Mint on the checklist. Oops.

I'm guessing that means it only covers through series 2, since there's supposed to be 190+ total in 2019, plus there's a total of 16 tribes if you count all three series (18 if you also include the Bakery Bytes and Lawn League). Still, seems interesting.

BotBots series 2 isn't quite in full swing just yet, but after a prior sighting of the 5 packs at a Target in California we're back again with another new sighting. This time it's thanks to Kevin Goddard for sending in our first US finding of series 2 8 packs! These were also found at a Target store, this time in Woodinville, WA which should serve as notice to anyone in the West Coast looking for new BotBots. Along with photos of the sets he picked up he also included shots of all the secret figures he got in each set.

Enjoy the photos and as a reminder we're still looking for sightings of the single blind boxes so let us know through the contact form if you find them out in the wilds!

The BotBots website has updated and with it they've added a little more depth and character to the figures. Each and every figure in waves 1 and 2 now have a little bio describing the characters. There's some interesting details in there and even a few unexpectedly cool gender choices. I won't give anything away here, you'll definitely want to read them for yourself. Just click the team symbol and then the character. With over 190 figures planed to be released through 2019 they're definitely building up some reading material.

They've also added printable colored check lists for each wave complete with pictures of each figure in both modes and their rarity. And you can let us know if you find anything interesting in the bios in the Energon Pub forums below.

Not sure if it is newsworthy or not, but I found the Botbots Series 2 single blind packs at a Target today in the Chicago area. No sign of the 5 or 8 packs yet in my area.

After initial US sightings of BotBots series 2 eight and five packs at retail we now have our first sighting of the single blind packs. Fellow Seibertronian TF-fan kev777 found the singles at a Chicago area Target for $2.99 each.

Image

With that all packs for series 2 has been found at US retail and they should be hitting retail saturation before too long. But that's not all for BotBots as series 3 will be showing up before we know it! If you've spotted any of series 2 at retail be sure to share your findings in the Energon Pub forums below and in the sightings section of the forum.

Did these also have imprinted/written numbers on the back of the packaging? If so, did you make a list of who goes with what?

Yes, these ones also have numbers. This time they are actually printed on the top of the back. Somewhere earlier on this thread is the list of who is who. Tfwiki is also a great source of a list of who is who, as well as who is unique to the blind bags and the 5 or 8 packs.

I'm really surprised by the fact that I still have not bought any more botbots, just the original 3 I got in December. I want some, but I've never picked them up.

I really need to get the Unicron and Penguin, and the donut and toilet paper at some point

Where did you get these images from Bacem? I love how they've gone all out on the packing, even putting directional buttons and the like.
