In connection to the 3rd quarter call, Hasbro has unveilled their new Transformers line, Botbots! These are 1 inch Transformers which turn from robot to a variety of every day objects (like Doughnuts and cameras) in 3-5 steps. There will be 61 unique characters to collect. Hasbro sent us official images as well as the fiction regarding this new line (found in bold below). You will also see a full product description with a variety of price points depensing on which kind of set you get. Some are blind bagged like the basic single figure, but when you get a collection you know some of the figures you’re getting but there’s still a surprise one in there as well.

You can view the gallery for the official images here.

BotBots are mischievous little robots who came to life from everyday objects inside a shopping mall! This rare type of Transformers robot is tiny, mischievous, and great at hiding!

Not long ago and somewhere close by, a glowing mist filled with TRANSFORMERS energy called ENERGON came down from the sky and covered a shopping mall. The things inside came to life as little TRANSFORMERS robots! These bots can hide in plain sight as everyday objects, meaning no one knows what's a bot and what's not! Mischievous, funny, and super silly, these are ... BOTBOTS!

When the Energon hit the objects inside, it made them More Than Meets the Eye. Candy, sports equipment, electronics, school supplies, and other things came to life as little Transformers robots. These robots hide in plain sight at the mall, disguised as the stuff we use everyday.

Each BotBots character belongs to a themed team based on what kind of store they belong in.

There are 61 unique 1-inch characters to collect in the first series of BotBots, each with their own individual personality. Like all Transformers, the characters change from an ordinary object into a little robot in just 3-5 easy steps.

The BotBots all belong to different tribes, inspired by product types you might find in a shopping mall, including the "Sugar Shocks" (sweet treats), the "Backpack Bunch" (school equipment), the "Toilet Troop" (bathroom items), the "Techie Team" (electronic gadgets), the "Greaser Gang" (fast food), the "Shed Heads" (gardening gear), and the "Jock Squad" (sporting goods).

they come out pretty cheap with the 8 pack, less than 2$ a toy. Funny how these are packed exactly like competing collectable toys

The fact that these actually transform is absolutely amazing. I was 100% certain they'd be static figures with no articulation whatsoever. I am definitely gonna pick up one of these.

Reminds me of a cross between Shopkins and the aforementioned McChangeables. These are super fun. I'm gonna need the football, the hockey player, the pizza, the fries and the fountain drink, for starters.

So if that's how they've decided Energon works in the BotBot universe, why did the stuff IN the mall get affected, but the mall itself somehow didn't get affected and become the newest Titan?

Really missed opportunity for :BOT: Malloplex or Shopus-Maximus with a Prowl styled Mall-Security Bot, and their nemesis :CON: Triptothemallticon.

Man. I am going to buy 1000 of these. If nothing else for other Transformers to use. :lol: I love how creative this is. Great stuff!!

Wow I wasn't expecting these to transform, it's like a Robot enlargement attachment party in a blister. I'm sold on these, a much better use of plastic than some of the other lines.

If these things sell well enough, I could absolutely see them going that route, eventually. I think about all of my daughter's Shopkins stuff and they have a ton of playsets now; the mall will be first out of the gate if these things are as big as they potentially could be.

Also, this is a really great way to sell the brand right now.

Well shit ... I would have been happy to skip over these but they actually look kinda cool.

If they actually show up locally (doubt it) then I might consider picking up a pack or two.
