The Press Release:
BotBots are mischievous little robots who came to life from everyday objects inside a shopping mall! This rare type of Transformers robot is tiny, mischievous, and great at hiding!
Not long ago and somewhere close by, a glowing mist filled with TRANSFORMERS energy called ENERGON came down from the sky and covered a shopping mall. The things inside came 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!
When the Energon hit the objects inside, it made them More Than Meets the Eye. Candy, sports equipment, electronics, school supplies, and other things came to life as little Transformers robots. These robots hide in plain sight at the mall, disguised as the stuff we use everyday.
Each BotBots character belongs to a themed team based on what kind of store they belong in.
There are 61 unique 1-inch characters to collect in the first series of BotBots, each with their own individual personality. Like all Transformers, the characters change from an ordinary object into a little robot in just 3-5 easy steps.
The BotBots all belong to different tribes, inspired by product types you might find in a shopping mall, including the “Sugar Shocks” (sweet treats), the “Backpack Bunch” (school equipment), the “Toilet Troop” (bathroom items), the “Techie Team” (electronic gadgets), the “Greaser Gang” (fast food), the “Shed Heads” (gardening gear), and the “Jock Squad” (sporting goods).

Piercing Ken Thoughts: I love miniatures but have fallen out of collecting things of this sort for quite a few years. I think that these are perfect for those geekier collectors of things like the “Grossery Gang” and some of the “Shopkins” stuff. Right off the bat I kind of want the Techie Team and Toilet Troop for my desk. What do you fans of miniatures and the Transformers think of this new toy line? Chime in down below.
