We have a few Transformers BotBots sightings to report. Fellow Seibertronian TF-fan kev777 found 3 of the 5 packs on Amazon.com.

Over in Canada, the blind packs containing one figure were found at Toysrus in the province of Ontario for $3.99 CAD each. They were in the Transformers section, and not the blind bag area. This was reported by Lioconvoy81 over at Cybertron.ca.

Each of the Lost Bots belongs to one of the other "factions".

About that, I can't quite get them to match up evenly.

Burgertron -- Greaser Gang
Clogstopper -- Toilet Troop
Frostferatu -- Sugar Shock
Game Over -- Techie Team
Stinkeye Stapleton -- Backpack Bunch

But Bonz-Eye and Dimlit both appear to be Shedheads with no extra member for Jock Squad. Seems like a strange oversight. As it is Jock Squad only has 6 members, you'd thing Lost Bots would have two Jocks instead to bring their numbers up.

Also these are definitely not something I would buy online, I want to limit the chances of getting duplicates.

Probably a good call, mine arrived today and sure enough I did get one duplicate, but I got the donut and unicorn cupcake, which I was hoping for, so I'm happy overall. I haven't opened them yet, so no clue if the blind ones are duplicates either. Plus if the 5 packs do show up at retail before Christmas, I can always buy another without a duplicate and return one of the packs with a double.

Thats some smart thinking there.

Dimlit could be Jock Squad - people waving flashlights in stadiums.

It was asked where the Botbots would be found when they got to retail and it turns out that they are neither in the boy or girl aisle. As it turns out, they were found at a US Walmart in the stocking stuffer bins. In Canada, some have been found at the checkout line.

Only the single "blind bags" have been found at brick and mortar retail so far and it turns out that those include the rarest figures, since some characters are only found through blind bags. There is a way to figure out which character is in the bling bag since there is an number scratched into the bottom right of the back of the card. You can see numbers 16 and 9 below which correspond to Slobber Rock and S.A. Cheez, as you can tell from the list below, courtesy of tformers.com.

1 - Stinkasaurus Rex
2 - Scrub-A-Dub
3 - Nobeeoh
4 - Cocoa Crazy
5 - Sippy Slurps
6 - Remorsel
7 - Skillz Punk
8 - Fomo
9 - S.A. Cheez
10 - S'up Dawg
11 - Twerple Bubble
12 - Spud Muffin
13 - Rootwing
14 - Venus Frogtrap
15 - Fun Gus
16 - Slobber Rock
17 - Frostferatu
18 - Dimlit
19 - Professor Wellread
20 - Snippy Snappy
21 - Totes Magotes
22 - Cranks
23 - Batsby
24 - Kidd Klobber

Do we know which characters these are yet?

No need, Philip164 already has us covered:

Green = 1 Figure, Yellow = 2 Figures, Red = 3 Figures, and Purple = 4 Figures

So the ones you can only find in blind bags are:

Cupcake
Book
Pencil sharpner
Bag
Soda Cup
Bush
Mushroom
Rock
Hot Coco
Chocolate Bar
Photo camera
Video Camera
Soap Bar
Deodorant
Decorative Plant Dinosaur

So 15 out of the 24 guys in the blind bags are found only in the blind bags? Just a shade under two-thirds, seems fair I gues.

Yeah, I think its fair too. Would kind of be a dick move if all the blind bag ones could be found in the other standard packs. And in any case, we can know which ones are in the blind bags too.

Am I correct in the assumption that there's only ONE figure per blind bag? That... is going to end up being rather expensive...

On the one hand, yes, it's about 50 cents to a dollar more than what you get per figure for the multi-packs. On the other hand, I can say from experience that a lot of these blind bag sets end up in places like dollar stores and Five Below, so you can wait and take a chance that you'll find some of them there.

Both Walmarts in our area claimed to have these in stock, but after much searching, no luck.

Am I right in thinking there's been no official characterizations provided for the individual Botbots? Because Seibertron's photo-galleries are making my typing fingers itchy.

I managed to snag the ones I wanted from the blind bags at Walmart. Now I just have to wait for Santa to put them in mine and my youngest's stockings.

Before I did, I got lucky and noticed that due to Amazon shipping the three 5-packs I ordered in a bubble mailer, 2 of the 3 red bubbles for the blind figure on the 5-packs had some small cracks in them. I'm not mad, in fact this was helpful as I was able to flex the plastic on the bubble and see who was inside. That crossed 2 off my Walmart list.

I did notice that Entertainment Earth has an assortment of 5 and 8 packs as well as 6 packs and cases of the blind bags. The blind bags come 24 to a case, so I think there is a good chance of getting one of each. The ones I found at Walmart looked to be a single set of 1-24, So I'm guessing they are packaging them that way.

We've purchased 15 BotBots from two different Walmarts, and so far every one of the identifying numbers has been correct.
