Here’s a new take on the classic Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots toy everyone remembers from when they were young. Tamiya’s Robocraft boxing robots are very much like the classic game, except you build the bots yourself. Sure, they might not look like “Bolt Crusher Bob” and “Gear Grinder Greg” but they’re just as fun.
Each robot operates on a wired remote, not a joystick at the base of the platform. With just a simple adjustment, you can switch between two punch types: upper-cut and straight jab. You know you’re going to be using the upper-cut. After all, it’s what JCVD* would use.
