BotBots anyone? How about all of them? Right before Thanksgiving, we received a cryptic teaser letter from Hasbro hyping up BotBots, the new micro Transformers that mimic everyday things. It asked us to get ready for the BotBots Challenge. That was great and all, but we had no idea what it meant. The next day I left to visit family for Thanksgiving, and stayed a while after that. And that day, after I left, a GIANT box of BotBots showed up. Pretty much ALL of them, plus some, in a super awesome promotional box. So, my gallery here is a bit delayed as I know other media outlets got this too. The BotBotChallenge from the teaser is to have you place these little guys in every day locations and see if people can find the BotBot in the pic. We encourage you all to do that as you build your micro legions!
We have run the entire package, including the promotional box itself, through a gallery session. 61 BotBots in all from Series 1 are featured inside, lined up in their designated teams:
I’ve also stole from each one of the teams to create my personal 2005 Crew! Dudearoni, Hawt Diggity, King Toots, The Plop Father, Clogstopper, Twerple Burple, Fun Gus, S.A. Cheese, ANGRY CHEESE, Stinkeye Stapleton and last but not least – Fottle Barts – are now adopted and will be rocking out on my desk!
Bottom line, even though I’m an old head, these little guys are fun. I can pick up and mess around, giggle with my wife and friends at the names, and just enjoy the sillyness. Plus, I can easily pass off any that I don’t feel fits the elite 2005 Crew status to a kid without thinking.
I highly suggest grabbing some for yourself. I’d like to thank Hasbro and their PR teams for sending this through, and the design teams for making ANGRY CHEESE and Fottle Barts in particular. Read on to check out Series 1 in full!
