Fellow Seibertronian TF-fan kev777 has found the Botbots series 4 special multi packs Target. For those unaware, there are two different Claw Machine boxes and two different Gumball Machine boxes. Each has five regular BotBots, four stickers, and one rare Gold BotBot.

TF-fan kev777 wrote:Not sure if this is news worthy or not, but I spotted the Botbots unboxing gumball machine 10-packs (6-packs really) at Target today so they appear to have arrived at US retail.

Re: Transformers BotBots Series 4 Gumball and Claw Machine Boxes found at Target (2050056)
Posted by dryxler on January 18th, 2020 @ 5:46am CST
I’ve been avidly collecting Botbots and I grabbed two of the Claw and two of the Gumball from Amazon, since each set has two assortments, for a total of four different ones. I wound up with two sets of identical ones, so I only had one assortment of each and two I didn’t need. I was thinking of returning them and I went to Target and the two I needed were there! I got the ones I had but didn’t need and swapped them for what I found, so my set of four was complete. They were all gone quickly.
Be warned that the price is $20, which is more than $3 each for six Botbots per box. And yeah stickers are cool but I don’t wanna pay extra for them. Not a good value. But each set is necessary if you want ALL of Series 4. Only two in each box are visible, with only one in each box visible that’s different from the other assortment. And there’s codes under the box too that are different. After getting the 24 blind packs and these four sets I’m over halfway through with series 4. Waiting on the 5 and 8 packs to hit shelves so I can sift through them and not gamble with online randomness. I made a checklist using the Botbot list on tfwiki and I’m ready to pick and choose.

Can you share a breakdown maybe with pics, that would be newsworthy, or at least worthy to add to the story already, I wanted to grab them but was unsure of the contents

I've got all 4 already, and if you want to complete the whole series, you will end up needing both claw and both gumball variants as well. Tfwiki has you covered as far as what is in each package of all the the Series 4 packs.

Amazon has the Series 4 8-packs up, but curiously has also upped the price to $16.49. Looks like I'll be waiting to find them at Target.

Sigh, got 2 of the same. Ordered 2 more, hopefully at least one of them will be for the one I don't have and then I can return the 2 extras to Kohls. The 2 I have are the ones with The Pollinator and Mucker Von Digs, and I was bummed that I didn't see Grass Guzzler, but then I remembered he's in the blind pack bubble on this one, so yeay! He was the one I was looking forward to most!

Also, heads up to anyone with Amazon returns at Kohls, my wife was actually pleased the last time we had to do the Amazon return game. When she returned them at the Amazon kiosk at our Kohls, they have her a 25% off her next purchase at Kohls coupon. Not sure if that is an every time kind of or just some random luck, I guess we'll find out on Tuesday when the next 2 8-packs arrive.

So I completed Series 1.5 this week and noticed something on the instructions I wasn't sure if anyone else pointed out yet. It looks like Hasbro is considering these as part of Series 1 if the instructions are considered official. Take a look at the instructions that came with the Lawn League 8-pack. Notice at the top the increased the number of bots for Series 1 to account for the Lawn League and Bakery Bites. And at the bottom, they included each of the tribes for the checklist.

I love the BotBots. They have great designs. But has anybody else noticed something odd about Smore N'More? Does her anatomy seem like it's more pose-able than it maybe should be?

Separate note. I love Crumbly Yumbly so much. Just a really solid and clean design. I also love his bio on the Transformers sight. I relate so much.

That is an interesting one! Smores looks like it is pretty dang posable, more so than others.

I still need to buy the science kits
