Hackerboy gets battle robots for Christmas. Note the elevation controlled missile battery on a rotating gun. It reaches them right out and touches things.
It would have been <i>one</i> bot but I successfully lobbied for a second so his battle bot can battle another bot. This one shoots Malibu Barbie dinner plates.
They are quite fun. In fact Cruel Wife e:mailed me today to tell me:
<blockquote>These robots totally ROCK!</blockquote>
OOoooh, Bad Mom. Playing with your son’s Christmas toy before Christmas??? Someone is getting coal or reindeer poo in her stocking.
Here I knocked out CW’s bot with three fast strikes to the nose grid and froze her bot. Classic match. And Melody was an observer to make sure it all went well. It seemed up and up. (Except that I blocked CW’s sight so she could not line up a shot on me other than firing blind.)
