So we knew the new year would bring about more Botbots, but that was all we knew, until now. Hasbro has updated their Australian site to include 4 new 5 packs which include new Botbots. 2 of those are new molds, and include a rolling pin and mixer. Both of those feature the colour change gimmick, which may be similar to the good old rub stamp effect. Both of these new molds are included in each of the 5 packs. The rest of the packs include redecos of previous Botbots including the soap dispensor in white and the pizza bot turned into a pie bot (the later works really well as a redeco). The packaging hints at even more redecos such as a white version of the book Botbot.

You can find all the images below which are followed by a full product description from the Hasbro site.

Not long ago, a flowing mist of Energon came down from the sky and covered a shopping mall. The objects inside were brought 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!

BotBots characters are little figures with big personalities! These collectible toys are around 1-inch tall and change from totally normal stuff to adventurous little robots in 3 to 5 easy steps. Makes a great gift for kids ages 5 and up!

Each Bakery Bytes pack includes 5 figures from 2 exclusive teams: 3 from the Bakery Bytes and 2 from the Lawn League! 2 of the included Bakery Bytes characters have color change features. Just rub the figure to reveal the hidden color! Also look for Lawn League 8-packs (sold separately, subject to availability).

I honestly don't care for these things. Having "official" transformers that turn into food and other "disposable" items just seems odd. If they weren't labelled as Transformers, or were explained away as being completely mechanical, with fake (food) disguises (or were monsters and robots from somewhere else), then I'd be more interested. The other main reason though, is that I can't understand what the bot or alt modes are meant to be half of the time.

Ha!, so they have officially made it big time and have repaints. Damn you Hasbro, you brilliant bastards. I'm going to need that piece of pie.

I love these! My kids and I are having a blast with these little guys. It's funny, though, because I was just thinking about possible redecos of Duderoni (the pizza guy), but only in terms of different pizza toppings. This works so much better.

It looks like the Sudsbeard (soap dispenser) redeco might be a jug of plant food (or weed killer?), given the logo on his hat and the fact that the other new team is called the Lawn League.

In that case, I see the belt sander getting turned into a mower in our future.
