Recommended for Ages 6+. “Battling” is a BIG thing for the 2013 Holiday Season, and at the head of the pack is BATTROBORG Battling Robots from TOMY. When I first came face-to-face with these pint-sized robotic combatants, I was with a group of fellow Dad Bloggers who had come together on the streets of Chicago in order to “Settle the Score.” What score were we settling? I’m still not quite sure, but I didn’t get a real good grasp of the game while surrounded by 20 or so other grown men that were huddled around like some sort of “Fight Club” while awaiting their chance at glory.
Now that we have our own set here at Rock Father HQ, it’s impossible not to think of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, the recent movie REAL STEEL, ROBOT JOX, or any other fighting robot scenario when dealing with Battroborg, but this is (I believe) the first-ever table-top arena for radio-controlled bots. You get the arena, two bots, four drones, and two controllers with the main Battroborg set.
Product Description: “Get ready for the most advanced battling robots ever created! Battroborg motion-controlled battling robots are here, and they’re giving you all the power. You control the battle, you control the robot, you control your destiny. It’s time to settle the score and take on your opponent in the three-in-one battle arena. Knock out your opponent by serving up five contact punches to the head. Or take your robot to battle boot camp where you can master the art of combat by taking on the training drones. Battroborg’s advanced radio control technology also allows for you to host a Battle Royal where up to 20 robots can battle at one time. The game play continues in auto drone mode where you can battle against a self-activated Battroborg robot for up two minutes. Because the Battroborg Arena Pack is assorted, the color of the robots you receive will vary.”
Curious to see what might happen when a four-year-old decides to “Settle the Score” in “Drone Mode?” It’s pretty entertaining.
