While Botbots Series 4 is only recently hitting shelves and online retail, listings for Series 5 have already started to appear at Entertainment Earth. While you may have just clicked that and noticed its "wave 4" verbiage, eagle-eyed Seibertronian TF-fan kev777 gave us a heads up that this listing appears to really be for Series 5, as its described contents are for two teams not yet released in previous assortments. TF-fan kev777 explains what to look for below:

TF-fan kev777 wrote:So I was snooping around Entertainment Earth's listing for the Botbots Series 4 5-packs and 8-packs to see if they were in stock when I noticed that they are using "wave" instead of "series" like on the packaging, but also, they have the 5-packs as wave 4, but the 8-packs as wave 5, both coming in January 2020. But I also noticed couple Listings for Botbots wave 4 8-packs without any photos yet and due in February 2020.

I think they actually mixed up the waves on these listings and actually gave us some sneak peek info on some new tribe themes for series 5. The link below is for 1 each of the Travel and Asian Food 8-packs.

Botbots is no stranger to food-themed teams, with Series 1 teams like the Greaser Gang and the latest Series 4 team the Los Deliciosos, so there are plenty of repaint and retool opportunities in the existing group to support another food-themed set.

Thanks to a tip from our pal Diem on Twitter, we're happy to let you know that long after their release in other parts of the world, the elusive Botbots Lawn League 8-Packs are now available to order on Amazon.com and are listed as shipping in the near future. These "Series 1.5" color-change packs were available overseas last year and have been tough to find even on eBay and other secondary market sources, commanding high prices when they were available. While the 5-Packs have been up for grabs on Amazon since this past fall, these packs don't allow collectors to complete the Lawn League team, leaving these 8-Packs as being necessary to complete the set.

Image

Two different 8-Packs are available, with only one of them providing all of the Botbots that a collector would need. Amazon does not allow a choice of which set you get, so many collectors will opt to order two of these sets to increase their chances of completing the team - though there are no guarantees as some collectors may receive two duplicates that are both the less desired option, but hey, that's what return policies are for.

Best of luck to all Seibertronians going after these previously hard to come by Botbots!

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.

Yup, that's Grass Guzzler. I love how he's getting his engine-butt cooled off by the watering can (Nozzlesnot) in the pic at the top of the package.

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.

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

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.
