Within the past two weeks, this new series of Botbots has been quietly making its way across the world and now we rounded up all the news about it, just to get us all up to date.

For starters, this 5th series continues the gold rush games and the bubble will be yellow (chartreuse). It is made up of redecos, retools and new molds with new themes like air travel and asian food.

TF-fan kev777 found them on Entertianment Earth:

After seeing Starscream post in the botbots thread about an online retailer having some Series 5 in stock and on pre-order, I checked entertainment earth and they have the 8-packs in stock as well along with photos and the new tribe names.

The generic travel group is the Frequent Flyers and the generic Asian food group is the Hibachi Heats


The website has its wires crossed though, since the orders for what they call wave 5 are here but the listings with mages of wave 5 are here. That later listing, even though wrongly named, has the right info pertaining to series 5 inside.

The 5 packs were found at Target in the US within this time as well and bearytrek wrote in to let us know (that is his photo we see below). Those are the Party Favors and Los Deliciosos teams.

Series 5 was first found in the UK before any official announcement.

Apparently the crossed wires are because the cases for these are labeled series 4. This has led to some speculation (I stress that it's just speculation) that this wave wasn't even supposed to ship to retail until April.

Amazon has the Series 5 8-packs up for pre-order with a ship date of April 1st. They have them both for $14.99 each, which is a relief since they have the series 4 8-packs for $16.49 for some weird reason.

Greetings all. Fellow Seibertronian TF-fan kev777 has let us know that the Botbots series 5 8-packs featuring the Frequent Flyers and Hibotchi Heats are now available on Amazon for pre-order! The 8-packs are priced at 14.99 USD each with a release date of April 1st and can be found at the links below.

https://www.amazon.com/Transformers-TRA ... 11&sr=8-21

https://www.amazon.com/Transformers-TRA ... 11&sr=8-19

The Frequent Flyers bots are themed as items you might take with you while traveling such as a backpack, sun glasses, camera (that is slightly reminiscent of Reflector color-wise) and travel pillow, while the Hibotchi Heats are food themed bots you might come across at a hibachi style restaurant as the names suggest.

With pre-orders going live it shouldn't be too long until we start seeing the series 5 8-packs pop up at brick and mortar retail as well. Keep your eyes peeled!

Have you pre-ordered these sets? Are you ready to add even more of these wacky characters to your ever growing Botbots collection? Let us know in the comments below and keep it tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers needs!

Yes! Me, too! It's funny because some stores around here still have Wave 1 packs. Also, since I wasn't expecting to find them any time soon, I never looked up the "recommended buys" for this wave to see which ones entailed the least number of purchases to collect all the figures. Ergo, I stood there for about ten minutes debating which ones to buy, slowly whittling down my choices to four, then two simply based on which ones appeared in the fewest packs. Turns out the last two I eliminated were the "recommended buys," and the two I bought were superfluous. The figures I'd assumed were rare were going to be readily available in the five-packs. :BANG_HEAD:

I spent a good 15 minutes in store trying to read tfwiki on my phone and determine who the hell each one was to figure out which 5 I needed. It was a pain, but a success. I'll be using them as rewards for my youngest (and me) for good behavior during the shutdown.
