Rumble Robots
item #32133 by Trendmasters

Boltman Me-Fisto Clamster Lugnut Bitor Lobjaw

This is a series of robots based on a stripped down version of BattleBots. Or maybe Pokemon on steroids? This is a truly interactive trading card game for kids of all ages. Your robot gains more power and abilities by swiping special Power Cards through it much like a credit card reader. From there on, you control the action with an infrared remote. Be the first to reduce your opponents power lever to zero, tip the other robot over or hit it's kill switch (which looks an awful lot like a tail!) and you win.

I'm sure you already guessed that I need remotes for several of these things! So far, I only have remotes for Me-Fisto and Bitor. And a set of Power Cards would be nice, too! Someone was kind enough to donate a couple of sets of cards, but I still need the remotes. Email me if you want to help keep the Home for Wayward Robots going...

I recently found these look-a-likes at W@l-M@rt the other day. They are called Bad 2 the Bone (B2B) Fighting Robots and they are made by a company called Cepia. This one's name is Crusher. The only real difference between these and their Rumble Robot cousins is that these do not rely on, nor can they read, barcoded trading cards. Instead, they are remote controlled Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots on wheels.
