Default Transformers Botbots trademark registered by Hasbro

No hints yet on what this is, but Hasbro have registered a trademark for "Transformers Botbots".

It sounds way too cutesy to be something for the mainline... so my guess is something for the younger demographic, like Rescue Bots.

Anyone have any other thoughts or guesses?

I'm thinking Hasbro is dropping us a clue in their trademark registration. They are having a laugh at Takara Tomy's (TT) expense. BOTBOTS is an anagram for TT BOOBS.

This makes me think of a neopets thing I saw once called a petpet, basically a pet for your neopet. So maybe a botbot is a line of baby transformers and/or pets for normal transformers?
