    The 8-packs and the "6-pack" game boxes have been listed on Entertainment Earth for JAN/FEB.
    The game boxes (Claw machine and Gumball machine) don't have dark blue capsules, but are noted as being part of the "Winners Circle" series that is being featured next year.

    Meanwhile, the 8-packs are listing two themes that aren't listed in the first post of this topic, from the product sheet inside the series 4 single packs.... so it is unknown what this means.

    Game box case...
    2x TRA BOTBOTS UNBOXING GUMBALL
    2x TRA BOTBOTS SURPRISE UNBOXING CLAW

    8-packs case...
    4x TRA BOTBOTS 8PK TRAVEL
    4x TRA BOTBOTS 8PK ASIAN FOOD

    The 5-packs have been found in Singapore, and the official images are now on the American Hasbro site as well.

    The eight 5-packs were bought up and opened (from Singapore), with the names of the toys listed....
    (bold names are the hidden figures - only one golden figure in the 5-packs, which must have three for the 8-packs)

    • Science alliance 5-pack 1: Dr Flaskenstein, Grandma Crinkles, Eye-Goon, Doc Kit, Lunchador
    • Science alliance 5-pack 2: Peels the Monkey, Incog-eggo, Dr Flaskenstein, Starscope, Mr. Business Esquire
    • Science alliance 5-pack 3: Dr Flaskenstein, Aday, Loadoutsky, Starscope, Windbag
    • Magic tricksters 5-pack 1: The Great Mumbo Bumblo, Whoopsie Cushion, Bemyne, Critically Complained, Mr. Business Esquire
    • Magic tricksters 5-pack 2: Rusty Von Cleave, Peary Peculiar, Whoopsie Cushion, King Cheats, Hiptoast
    • Home Rangers 5-pack 1: Cam the Man, Flare Devil, Bogusaurus Rex, Rolley Doughley, Lunchador
    • Home Rangers 5-pack 2: Pop N. Lock, Tricitrustops, Heat Freak, Rolley Doughley, Zanzabar
    • Home Rangers 5-pack 3: Suave Verde, Incog-eggo, Roarista, Whirlderful, Goldie Rock
    The sets on the Hasbro site...

    The Home Rangers (3 different packs)

    The Science Alliance (3 different packs)

    The Magic Tricksters (2 different packs)

    We get some translucent Botbots in the fourth series. The product pages note that Series 4 has 60 Botbots, in single packs, 5-packs and 8-packs. That doesn't note the two game machine 6-packs, and we already know from the enclosed checklist that there are 69 Botbots in Series 4.
    The product pages also incorrectly note that each of the three different themed 5-packs come in four different varieties, when there are only 3 of two themes, and only 2 of the other theme.

    With the single packs already out here and in America, and the 5-packs out in Asia and available at Amazon America, it just left the 8-packs left to be revealed... and Entertainment Earth have posted up pre-orders and images of the eight 8-packs (four Wilderness Troop packs and four Movie Moguls packs).

    We don't yet know the hidden figures, but we now know what most of the figures will be in each of the multi-packs...

    From the retail sighting of the two game box sets in America, we now have details on their exact contents. The good news is that they have a set assortment of six Botbots toys (with four capsules containing stickers), but the bad news is that like the Arcade 16-pack from Series 3, these two game boxes each have two different assortments, meaning that you'll have to buy all four to get all four golden Botbots (one exclusive to each pack).

    • Claw Machine Surprise Unboxing (6-pack #1)

    Blurry Murray, Crabby Grabby, Goldface, Miss Mixed, Mr. Memory Banks, Skitter Chatter, 4 stickers

    • Claw Machine Surprise Unboxing (6-pack #2)

    Blurry Murray, The Cobbler, Gold Dexter, Milton, Skitter Chatter, Snotty Stem, 4 stickers

    • Gumball Machine Surprise Unboxing (6-pack #1)

    Crumbly Yumbly, Disaster Master, Fancy Flutter, Goldsferatu, Snore N'More, Movie Munchster, 4 stickers

    • Gumball Machine Surprise Unboxing (6-pack #2)

    Fancy Flutter, Frostfetti Frostyface, Game Older, Goldenberry D'uhnut, King Cubano, Smore N'More, 4 stickers
    If these show up here (which I doubt, since the Arcade sets didn't seem to sell to well here), you don't need to look for a number on the back of the packaging with these, as you can see some of the Botbots in the clear capsules through the window of the box, which should make it easy to see which set you have.

    TFWiki now has almost all of the series 4 packs listed, with the exception being the 8-pack mystery capsule figures... but when they are released and the contents known, they are likely to include a listing of the recommended packs to buy, to avoid ending up with too many duplicates.

    (I still don't see the need for duplicates in the multipacks... have more of the series in single packs for those wanting specific figures, but then just have the multi-packs each have it's own toys, plus the exclusive hidden figure in the capsule, so that if you want the entire series you just by the multi-packs.)

    The Hasbro website has added the character profiles for Series 4 Botbots, and the catalogue checklist (as a pdf). If you want a jpg copy of the catalogue, or just want to look at the artwork for all of the series 4 toys without going through every profile page, check this TFW link.


    BTW, I managed to get one of the "gumball machine" packs from Amazon America last week, and I was amazed to find that they actually managed to make it work like a gumball machine. They managed to create a cardboard box with inner (cardboard) mechanisms to allow you to slide the front panel that has the finger-hole, to open up a hole inside the box to let one capsule to drop down and make its way to the collection point at the bottom.
