hexbug-battlebots-tombstoneIt’s robot fighting time at home with the new Hexbug BattleBots. These are miniature, licensed, remote control replicas of the ABC television show’s fighting bots, Tombstone and Witch Doctor, and are available individually ($30), paired in a Rivals set ($50), or accompanied by a BattleBots Arena ($80) complete with manual pulverizers.

Made of plastic and powered by AAA batteries, the Hexbug BattleBots are not going to produce the same armor-shredding and bot-flipping power seen on TV. However, parts of each robot are held together with light magnets, so the satisfaction of seeing one’s opponent fall to pieces is still part of the game.
