BotBots is a new Transformers line from Hasbro featuring smaller robots in disguise - and disguised as more everyday objects.
"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," reads Hasbro's description. "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!"
There are 61 BotBots in this line, and they transform into candy, sports equipment, electronics, school supplies, and other things you'd find in a mall. They are grouped into different tribes based on their product types, such as 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).
