I might buy some bot shots for walmarts prices. At least for my kid, or maybe just the core characters. They look tiny enough to still fit on my crowded displays.

I don't remember Battle Beasts being that small. Of course, I was much smaller then.

Does RID Cliffjumper's cart art emphasize wrist blasters that only the FE mold actually had? Ouch.

Swing and a miss for me today, only saw a pile of RiD Bumblebee.

Are all the Botshots translucent? Or are there chase figures? Or is just sentinel translucent?

It looks like only some of them are translucent. I hadn't realized Sentinel would be one of them until I saw this thread.

Sentinel is the wave 1 "superbot". He's transparent and I think he has more oomph in the power numbers.

I'm curious as to why it mentions Hasbro Canada on the back. Is that normal for TF products bought in the US?

Also this appears to be an official site of some sort but I have no code, so I don't know what it does.

the file is named char_Prime_and_Bumblebee_2.png . Maybe it's Nemesis vs. Cliffjumper (though I think it looks the most like the Kre-O Sentinel)

Adam is a Knower-Of-Things, plus I don't think he'd tease us like that.

I do hope they inundate us with the little buggers.

I just want to see one standing next to a Battle Beast or Mini-Con. If they're BB sized, I'm gonna get the lot of 'em. Smaller... then at least a few.

I hadn't seen this before, very brief video review:



They look slightly bigger then Battle Beasts.

It's neat, and I can't decide what to think of it basically being Transformers Bakugan (even down to the ~$5/per price point).

Not my finest work, but when life gives you lemons, they're yellow so just paint black stripes on them and call them Bumblebee. Kids will buy them.

Saw the first wave of Bot Shots (I always read that as Butt Shots) at TRU. The only one I didn't grab was Sentinel Prime as I didn't like the fact that he was all translucent with just his face and eyes painted. The others were hard to resist, but I feel they are a dollar too expensive at $5.

Yeah, I'd have a hard time resisting them at $3.49 - 3.99 somehow it feels easier at $4.99-$5.99.

Perhaps they'll be cheaper at Walmart or Target if they show up.
