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.

So I picked up 3 of these Botbots yesterday, and they are so cute! This was what the Tiny Turbo Changers were leading to, and I love it.

If anyone has dupes of the Penguin or Unicorn, those are the 2 I really want! Can't wait to start seeing the 5 and 8 packs!

Many were hoping that the Botbots would be found in stores soon especially since it is easier not to score so many doubles when you can actually see what is inside the multipack.

Well every single release has now hit Canada at Toysrus stores. The 5 packs are $12.99 and the 8 packs are $19.99 CAD. There is currently a Buy One Get One 50% off which includes all Transformers at Toysrus (you may need to remind the cashier since them arriving after the begining of the sale may require some workaround) making these even cheaper. As you will see in the images below, a lot of figures repeat eachother in the packs so there is a guide available showing which packs to by to get the entire set withthe least doubles possible. You can find that guide here.

This is great news to many who were hoping to use these as stocking stuffers this Christmas. If you want to see these toys in detail before you buy them, we have a gallery for every single character here.

Seeing BotBots sold next to Titans Return Legends just makes me think that I would have been all over Titan Masters sold in multi-packs like this.

It would have been in a brilliant idea, and the same if they ever revisit Minicons ala the Unicron Trilogy

Thanks to the numbers on the backs I got all the botbots that I wanted out of the blind packs. These little guys are so much fun! Slobber-rock is my boy, he's a rock tortoise what's not to love? I can't wait to find the multi packs so I can get the unicorn, doughnut and penguin.

We have the same taste, those are the oens I wanted most too, along with Sudsbeard. My advice is to get the multipack with sudsbeard since he is unique and thus it would be the best way to avoid duplicates later.
