New BotBots: the Bakery Bytes and Lawn League tribes!
The holiday season is just barely past us, but the gifts just keep on coming. While most of us are still scrambling to collect whatever BotBots we can as the initial tide of single blind-packs, 5-packs, and 8-packs hits, some NEW adorableness has made its presence felt!
The Hasbro Australia website has a product page up that reveals two more BotBots tribes: the Bakery Bytes and the Lawn League. More interestingly, the Bakery Bytes will have a feature new to BotBots, and unseen in Transformers for quite some time — color-change deco!
The stock images available on the website show the quartet of Bakery Bytes 5-packs. These will include the as-yet unnamed new stand mixer and rolling pin figures, alongside returning and redecoed versions of Stinkasaurus Rex, Sudsbeard (with a shamrock on his hat?), Bonz-Eye, Duderoni (now a fruit pie of some kind), and Cuddletooth. As usual for BotBots 5-packs, each has a blind-packed figure; whether these might be redecos, retools, or new molds, we don’t know yet.
Other returning molds seem to be likely, though, if the packaging is any indication: what seems to be a redecoed Cocoa Crazy in blue (with cubes instead of marshmallows?) and Professor Wellread in white (perhaps a cookbook now, since other art shows images of food on the cover?). A blue watering can bot in the corner also suggests that more new molds await! More reveals might be in the offing, once we see the Lawn League 5-packs.
Here’s the text breaking down what to expect in the upcoming releases, from the Hasbro Australia website:
Not long ago, a flowing mist of Energon came down from the sky and covered a shopping mall. The objects inside were brought to life as little Transformers robots! These bots can hide in plain sight as everyday objects, meaning no one knows what’s a bot and what’s not! Mischievous, funny, and super silly, these are… BotBots!
BotBots characters are little figures with big personalities! These collectible toys are around 1-inch tall and change from totally normal stuff to adventurous little robots in 3 to 5 easy steps. Makes a great gift for kids ages 5 and up!
Each Bakery Bytes pack includes 5 figures from 2 exclusive teams: 3 from the Bakery Bytes and 2 from the Lawn League! 2 of the included Bakery Bytes characters have color change features. Just rub the figure to reveal the hidden color! Also look for Lawn League 8-packs (sold separately, subject to availability).
