Let the bot battles begin
Have all the fun of a robot battle in your own room with this BattleBot arena. Designed by Hexbug and based on the popular BattleBot series, you can control Tombstone or Witch Doctor and duel it out to be the champion. As you hit your opponent, their armour goes flying just like the actual robots. And when you’re ready for round two, just pop the armour back on again. Drive your robots with the two infrared controllers and control forward, backward, left, right movements alongside your moving weapon and battle your way to victory.

It’s not just the robots you need to watch
The BattleBot Arena comes with a showground for your bots to fight in, complete with realistic clear plastic walls and a fold out arena floor game board. The arena has obstacles to watch out for – including a hammer controlled by your opponent. Lure your enemy into the right place and push your hammer to land a hit if you can. Dominate the action with this 480mm x 480mm field, which comes as part of a board size of 510mm x 510mm that’s suitable for placing on tables or desks for battling in comfort.

Battle with up to four bots at a time
Each control can be on one of four channels, which lets you use up to four bots simultaneously (two are included in this set). Just turn the robot on and press a button on the control set to one channel, and the robot will automatically sync to it. If you’re using multiple bots just select a different channel before you pair. The BattleBots are powered from three AAA batteries, and the controllers from two LR44 batteries, which are all included.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3...2....1...ACTIVATE! Bought as a Christmas present for my son who is a big fan of Robot Wars (I think BattleBots is the U.S Equivalent?) He was hugely chuffed to receive this - It's a well presented box so makes for an exciting gift. The toy itself is great fun, the 'Robots' are really responsive and the magnetic panels you can knock off each machine to simulate damage works well - sometimes almost too well when bits fly out of the arena! The only minor grumbles are that the battery on the controllers ran out fairly quickly, also the spinning weapons tend to catch slightly on the middle of the arena floor, where it was folded in the box. Overall really pleased - the fact this is still seeing extensive action 10 days after Christmas is a good sign!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Took the first one back after we found one of the remote controls didn't work from the off. Maplins were good getting a replacement and after checking it in the shop we took the second kit home for our 9 year old only to find after less than 60 seconds playing the remote control failed again. One such fault might be unlucky but two sets with the same fault can only mean poor quality. Not impressed avoid it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kids love it! This was a Christmas present for my sons, they both enjoy playing it, smashing them up then rebuilding it. Pairing the remotes to the device isn't always quick but has always worked eventually.
