A commercial has been found on Vimeo for Botbots... with a jingle that explains where the name comes from - Here a bot, there a bot, everywhere a botbot.

These things are awesome.
I'm staying away though, I'll definitely end up poorer.

Some new Botbots have been found (on the Australian part of the Hasbro website)... with what appears to be colour-change paint apps, on just two of them.
The new 5-packs could be a store-exclusive set because aside from the two new moulds that have the colour-change paint, all of the rest are redecos... and the two new moulds are in every 5-pack, which would mean half of the Botbots in this set would be duplicates.

The two new teams are Bakery Bytes and Lawn League. With no other teams included in these 5-packs (like in the first series), these are not likely to be part of Series 2, which should be another 60+ figures.

I now have a batch of these.

I could only find the 5 and 8 packs, which I haven't opened yet but up close they look a lot better quality than I had originally thought. Looks like I'll try and complete the set instead of cherry picking my favourites.

A new listing in Canada for Botbots has been found called, "Grand Opening Surprise" for about AU$35.
No content details or images, but the packaging is said to be about 30cm by 30cm, with a depth that suggests it is the same as the 5 and 8 packs, just bigger.

Based on the price, it wouldn't have more than 10 Botbots. It is listed as being a kilogram, so maybe it is just a small number of Botbots, that are packaged with a buildable display case (like the shopping mall in some of the promotional images).
