Transformers News: Dare You Accept...The Botbots Challenge?
Transformers Botbots Kid Klobber Gallery

They have issued a challenge to tie in with the launch of these new range of Transformers toys. As the Botbots are real life objects that have been given life by an Energon Mist, the challenge is simple. Collect a full team of them and then take a photo of them blending in with their surroundings! Ideally this would mean hiding them with their real life counterparts. So Shed Heads in a garage, or Toilet Troop hanging out in the bathroom. Once you have your photo, post it online for the world to see, challenging viewers to spot the Botbots hiding places! Don't forget when you post the photo up, to use the hash tag #BotbotsChallenge.

So what are you waiting for? Go and track down the Botbots and have some fun! Happy hunting!

The official release window for these is early 2019 and there will be two more series released throughout 2019 with over 190 Botbots to collect. These will be released through a mixture of sets and blind bags.

Please find below the announcement of the challenge, which has been mirrored here for your convenience.

So is :HASBRO: going to be providing a full set of these for free to those who want to accept the challenge? Because I have zero desire to spend any money on these...

We made some galleries to give you the best look yet at all these new Toys. Here we have the Greaser Gang. These are all fast food related items and appliances used to make the greasey goods. They turn into things like a slice of pizza, French fries, a drinks cup and even a grilled cheese sandwich. The official release window for these is early 2019 and there will be two more series released throughout 2019 with over 190 Botbots to collect. These will be released through a mixture of sets and blind bags.

Is there a more complete set of rules for this challenge on Hasbro's site? Because I can think of a lot of photos I'd love to take with these that might get disqualified.

Like showing them interacting with logical yet non-Hasbro toys. Say, the fast-food guys blending in with the old Food-Changeables, or a Leatherface figure using the chainsaw guy to attack Buffy...

Say, Slobber Rock would fit in perfect with the Rock Lords, which Hasbro does own now, despite the fact that they'd probably sooner revive Spiral Zone or cosponsor a Starriors revival with Takomy. But I just bought me a Fossilsaurus, so that's who he's getting squashed by, regardless!

Words cannot express how much I want these. I want them all. I want _swarms_ of these things. They're an absolute fresh of fresh air, new and vibrant and funny. Curse my brokeness. :-(

I think it's more of a "just for fun" thing than a contest with concrete rules and prizes, so you probably have some wiggle room and the worst thing that happens is they don't share your picture or whatever. Don't quote me on that, but if I had to guess.

Yeah, that sounds like the likeliest scenario.

No, those were guidelines for the free samples that Hasbro sent Seibertron.com. Maybe I should have blocked out that verbiage but didn't see anything wrong with it since we are supposed to disclose that anyways.

hm. still not feeling these things. I mean they're amusing enough in photos but do I want to pay actual money and have these on my shelf? No. I really don't.

The Plop Father is amazing. I never though I would see a Godfather reference in Transformers. Especially in a line geared towards kids.
