Seibertron.com was provided by Hasbro with a Promotional Box containing a large batch of the Series 4 and 5 Botbots, advertised under the moniker of "Goldrush Games". It appears that this set of Botbots is meant to be a large training and gaming set, and to go along with that, the Transformers Official Youtube Page uploaded an exclusive stop-motion video showcasing all the botbots in the set training in the gym for the Goldrush Games. We get to see a lot of fun stuff in this roughly two and a half minute long video, including some boxing, some lifting, some sword fights, and more!

You can check out the full training video below, as well as some images of the promotional box set that Seibertron was sent. Let us know what you think of this Goldrush Games box and the training video in the comments section below!

We have word of a story in Newsweek magazine regarding one of the more interesting lines in all of Transformerdom, BotBots! The article touches briefly on the origin of Transformers brand as a whole, but mostly describes how the Transformers BotBots line from Hasbro came to be - what the inspiration was, and how the design team, led by Senior Design Director Marcelino Paulino,comes up with the figures, and the backstory. Also interviewed is Senior Director of Global Brand Marketing Ben Montano

The idea of BotBots and how they came to be stemmed from a meeting in the office of Senior Director of Global Brand Marketing Ben Montano. Talking with his team of designers, [Paulino] posed a simple question: "how do we create everyday objects that have more than meets the eye feel and what would it look like?"

Montano, in particular, is also quite a fan of the silly nature of the BotBots line.

"We wanted to keep the property a little bit loose, Paulino's team really brought what an apple or a sneaker brought to life would be," Montano said. "The seriousness that is most of our storytelling. just felt like it wasn't the best place to play here."


You can read the full article by clicking here, or on either of the pictures above. It's an interesting look into a line that doesn't get a ton of attention, but surely has its devoted fans.

Do any of you collect this line? Have your favorites to show off he here? Feel free to do so, and discuss the article below!

I see BotBots as nothing more but Shopkinformers, though the photos taken with them have tons of imagination and creativity when used with other figures.

For those of us with kinds who love the Botbots and reading (or for us grown-up who love backstories), there is a Botbots level 3 reading book on Amazon for pre-order due for release in July. I already secured one for my youngest's birthday in August, so the timing is perfect with me.

I like Botbots, don't get me wrong, but who are they kidding?

Let's be honest, the idea came to them as, "Shopkins are popular. How do we jump on that bandwagon?"

I don't collect the line but there was one that I had to have; Steve from Accounting. It's been months now and not one person from work has asked about the mini-stapler sitting on my PC tower . . .

Greetings Seibertronians! This one goes out to the fans of Transformers BotBots, one of the more popular recent additions to the Transformers franchise and a boon to those who love posing their transformers in amusing situations, like Beast Wars Masterpiece Megatron with his rubber duckie.

Target have updated one of their BotBot listings as Series 6 Caffine Collective, listing it similar to others in the series so far and mentioning this name repeatedly in the product descriptions. We knew from the last Toy Fair that series 6 was happening but this gives us the name and theme of one of the new teams. The pictures used for the item though are those advertising series 5, the gold rush games.

Image

*Important*

Anyone buying this will not receive this series 6 Team. Instead they'll receive Series 5 Hibochi Heats 8-Packs.

This team isn't out yet and hasn't been officially revealed by Hasbro. All we have is this name.

You excited to catch more BotBots? Think these will give your collection a caffeine buzz? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I'm not sure if anyone really cares at this point, but we did get confirmation that The series 1 Lost Bots Dimlit and Bonz-eye were both from the Shed Heads tribe and there was no series 1 Lost Bot from the Jock Squad.

The source is the Lost Bots book that came out and I've been reading to my youngest every night this week.

Botbots vehicles are coming! While we have very little details, we now have an image to go with some product codes referring to Transformers Botbots vehicles. These seem to be $20 sets where a botbots can have their own vehicles to drive. We've seen this in the tail end of the G1 era with transformers having their own vehicles and now they are bringing this playstyle back for a new generation. The image is below featuring what they call the Ruckus gang. We can see the vehicle Pizza and the Vehicle controller, which resembles the Batwing of sorts. You an view the various codes and pricepoints for those and other upcoming Botbot toys. Seems like this line is coming back in a big way. All of this is courtesy of fellow Seibertronian JTPrime17.

yeh, pretty cool. People are seeing this as a return to those Computer Warrior toys. I know Cobotron would get a kick out of these too if he were still around the boards.

I completely forgot about those toys for a moment there. I had a few of them as well!

I find these fun, but I wish they’d have a 3mm or 5 mm peg so they could interact better with full size Transformers. I currently have a few sitting on Jetfire’s shoulders and one on PotP Inferno’s ladder. These vehicles look fun too though.

I hear you, to me the biggest oversight was not making the handle for Clogstopper 5mm, its just a little too big.

Dang that's cool, I've avoided the fifty bazillion waves of the ikkle things but having the pizza ones in the pizza might have to be done. The control pad will go well next to the console Prime and Megs.

I really dug Computer Warriors. I had the Pepsi can and a couple of the single carded figures with those transforming circuit boards.
