- The series was teased in the Christmas Episode.
- This the second season to not have chocolate bars as the 2-packs, soda cans as the 4-packs, and chip bags as the 10-packs and used cardboard packaging using army crates instead of milk crates. However, the series returned to 2, 4, and 10 Grosseries, switching back from 2, 5, and 12 Grosseries from Series 3.
- Despite the toilet motif used for static images of the surprise packs, not every location uses them, with some packs being plastic army crates. What is noticeable is the lettering of "The Trash Pack" still seen on the toilets, as they are recycled versions of the molds, possibly hinting that these toilets were last minute additions.
- This is the first series to have different icons for each of the different rarities.
- Some European editions of the 4 pack incorrectly stated that there were 2 Grosseries inside the included army crate, when there's only 1. The top-left of the packaging still correctly said that there were 4 Grosseries in total.
- Some countries, such as Mexico, appear to have skipped this series for unknown reasons.
- This is the only series in the franchise's history to not have any playsets released at all.
