Soon Forget: Transformers BotBots Series 6

This is the latest in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of blog posts memorializing cancelled toys. Our figure today is Hasbro's BotBots Series 6.

Series 6 was first hinted at at Toy Fair 2020, where a new pair of "Surprise Unboxing" sets were shown: a toilet and a treasure chest. Those were planned for release in Summer 2020, but failed to appear.

Hasbro gave no further comment on the status of the series, but eventually a PDF checklist was found on their customer service site, revealing the full lineup, including several new tribes:
