Jump into Battle with Tomy’s Battroborg

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Tomy‘s Battroborg battling robots are the first micro robots of their kind. They leverage advanced motion-control technology in combination with hugely popular robot and combat action. And boy are they cool.

These robots bring players to the center ring with two-handed motion-controlled nun chucks (similar to those on your Wii controller) that let opponents dictate every move with their jabs. That’s right—these robots punch like you punch. With Battroborg’s, battling robots can come to any room in your home for fast-paced combat that won’t leave any bruises.

Battroborg comes with a 20-minute quick-charger to keep the fun going. Simply pair up the charged robot to a tech controller to create real-time action and reaction. The signal from the control operates at distances of up to 50 feet. Battroborgs will automatically record damage level via an LED light on each robot that changes color every time the robot gets punched. Five punches signals the end of the battle, or players can defeat their opponents quickly by KO—a knock over. Kids (or adults!) can battle for one-on-one competitions or have large Battle Royals of up to 10 robots in the 3-in-1 Battle Arena.

The Battroborg robots have three different competitive modes. The first is Combat Mode, a one-on-one match between you and another Battroborg. Autodrone Mode is meant for two or more Battroborgs. Your Battroborg automatically punches for two minutes. Single players can use this mode to master their battling moves against the self-controlled robot. The third mode is Tag Mode, for two or more players. One Battroborg, designated the chaser by a red light, will move at the normal speed and chase the other Battroborgs, designated with green lights, who move at a slower speed.

When I saw these guys at Toy Fair, I immediately loved them. The nostalgia of Rockem Sockem Robots, but with a cool new modern upgrade caught my attention right away. They’re R/C toys, but they get kids up and moving. I challenge anyone to play with these battling robots and not get their whole body into it. Since you can play with a bunch of people, Battroborg is perfect for siblings, sleepovers, or even settling office disputes among co-workers. They’re fun, fast, and pack a punch!
